Our approach to our drinks selection here at the BEST WESTERN Buchanan Arms Hotel is most certainly ‘refershing’. Great drinks choices and friendly staff makes the Buchanan Arms, as well as being a delightful, ‘couthy’ country style residence for a few days, a really refreshing place to drink.

And here we have both the product choice and a range relaxing areas to enjoy it in. From our very traditional country bar and cozy Lounge – to our superb patio and decking area with outdoor seating.

We have no connections or ties with any major pub chain and are totally independent – allowing us to be both comprehensive and inventive in our drinks selections for you.

And no coaching inn in Scotland is complete without all that is necessary and essential to satisfy the most avid, discerning drinks connoisseur – the Scotch Malt Whisky. Drown yourself in our extensive ‘whisky embassy’ and let our team take you on a liquid tour of Scotland. Our range of Scotch malt whiskies is one of the finest in the area and features local and regional favourites such as Glengoyne and Auchentoshan - aswell as some great names from the Highlands, Islands and Lowlands too – including Macallan, Laphroaig, Caol Ila, Talisker, Lagavulin, Highland Park and Glenlivet.

Our warm and welcoming snug bar extends to our spacious Lounge and Conservatory - beautifully light and airy with large comfortable sofas, and real fires for cosy winter warmth. Sit down, relax and enjoy our soothing music and great laughs. Friendly service and a real welcome, keeps you together and serves great drinks.

You’ll also enjoy an extensive cellar of over 40 interesting fine wines from around the world, and half a dozen lovely house wines are available by the glass too. All hand picked and never found in supermarkets!

The ideal surroundings to meet a colleague for an informal ‘meeting on the move’, or a coffee with friends, the perfect spot for a drink before or after a meal in the Salmon Leap Restaurant, or perhaps an opportunity to chill out and read the papers whilst the rest of the family use our superb leisure facilities. An extensive range of beverages and wines are on offer, along with an excellent selection of aperitifs, cocktails, and after dinner liqueurs, not to mention freshly ground speciality coffees and teas throughout the day and evening, along with a snack menu, served from 10am until 6pm.
