The Beech Tree is a fantastic, family-friendly restaurant and bar, that sits just next to Dumgoyne distillery (a short drive north of Glasgow). Within an enviable rural setting, alongside the West Highland Way path and within a short walk from Dumgoyne hill, there is ample car parking and an extensive beer garden for warmer days.
The Beech Tree is a very popular venue for families, and it’s not difficult to see why. They are tolerant of children, offer an extensive child-friendly menu and have a menagerie of animals that will have the kids completely absorbed. Cute ducks, anyone? Miniature Shetland ponies? Wildlife walk? However, it’s not just children that enjoy The Beech Tree hospitality, and it’s a popular choice for walkers, cyclists, couples and those having a drive out from the city and want value for money dining.

There is the bar area, snug, conservatory and extensive gardens that are all utilised for dining, so it’s easy to find a quiet space if you don’t appreciate the lively chatter of children.
What is quite endearing about The Beech Tree Inn, is that they do not set themselves up as a ‘fine dining experience’, but rather as an inn serving good old fashioned pub fayre. Locally sourced ingredients (where possible) are used to make a variety of homemade world dishes, but the focus is on good quality pub grub that offers great value for money.
There is also The Beech Tree Craft Shop to enjoy. This offers quite a broad selection of products from wooden sculptures, handmade jams & chutneys, funny printed baby bibs to printed (on site) t-shirts to commemorate your walking and climbing endeavours.
The Beech Tree Inn is certainly worth a visit. It’s popular with locals and visitors alike, and sometimes words don’t quite encapsulate what is on offer! A quick video play is recommended!
The Beech Tree Inn is located off the A81 Glasgow-Aberfoyle road in Dumgoyne, near Killearn, about 13 miles north of Glasgow City Centre.
