Each Christmas The Oak Tree Inn is wrapped up for the festive period, with a giant ribbon and bow. This Christmas things get even more festive as the Oak Tree Inn hosts a Santa's Grotto.
The Oak Tree is in Balmaha, on the eastern shores of Loch Lomond. Tickets for Santa's Grotto are £7 per child, including an age appropriate gift of a toy.
