Extra Information

The present hotel lies at the important junction of two major road and rail routes crossing the mountainous district of Breadalbane, these routes follow the natural terrain and are of very ancient origin. In pre-Reformation days, religious communities will have provided limited hospitality for the few travellers through these parts, as is recorded in connection with the ancient foundation at Strathfillan. As the country became more settled, trade developed and inns arose to serve the needs of the drovers, packmen and other travellers.The original inn lay some 500 metres to the west of the present site, at the foot of Bogle Glen. There are stories that link it to a local hero of the 17th century, Rob Roy Macgregor, as recorded by an unknown author in "Strath Fillan and Glen Dochart in Bygone Days". The old inn survived into quite modern times, Military roads and bridges had been constructed in the late 18th century to subdue the Jacobite interest, and these had been supplemented by official inns or "King's Houses" in key strategic locations.In time, the track through Glen Bogle fell into disuse and the present hotel arose, beside the modern highway.
