Welcome to the Black Bull

Steeped in history and within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, our beautiful old "drovers’ inn" is waiting to give you a warm welcome.  The community of Gartmore purchased the Black Bull in 2019 and have worked together on a huge refurbishment programme.  We are now the proud owners of a fantastic pub with wonderful home cooked food, a roaring fire, local Whiskies, friendly staff and stunningly beautiful bedrooms.


Why not escape the city and enjoy our beautiful countryside and relax in the tastefully decorated surroundings of our lovely Black Bull.


We have a lovely bar and drinks area as well as a very spacious beer garden. With space at both the front and back of the pub, we have plenty of tables inside and out for everyone. The beer garden also has 4 marquees protecting some of our tables from the unexpected rain showers that never happen in Scotland… There is even a patio heater for when it gets chilly.
