I stayed at Clachan Inn, 2 Main Street 0845-8334169. The evening meal was very good if you got that far but you would need to arrive early or book in advance I think. The breakfast was OK. Not sure what the lunches are like or whether they will serve breakfast if you don't stay there but could be worth phoning to see what they will do.

From memory it is only about 4/600 yards down the road, it certainly isn't far.

There is also a market on the corner of the town green where you can pick up sandwiches, coffee or just about anything else your heart desires. And yes, its just a short walk off the WHW.

We walked down the lane just after the sharp left hand bend, and instead of taking the WHW path off to the right, carried on into Drymen.
Next morning we retraced our steps back up the lane,as far as the path. We followed the path for about 300 yards and were then diverted back into Drymen thus making a full circle, and directed up the road to relocate the WHW at the forest.

Dave, when was that? When we walked the WHW in Sept 2008, there was no diversion back to Drymen. But if one took that diverted path directly from Drymen to the forest, might it be shorter than retracing steps back up the lane?

It was well before 2008 may even be as long as 10 years ago.
Yes you could it's the lane that leads directly up alongside and into the forest.
However personally I don't like missing out bits of the official route and prefer to retrace to where I left it.
