Cosy cottage with everything we needed for our stay. The welcome pack was much appreciated and Anne was on help to help with any problems.

Quite a central location for exploring Loch Lomond and the Trossacks. We visited Dumbarton castle, Inveraray castle. Stirling, several other Lochs nearby, climbed the 246 steps up and down the Wallace monument

A truly lovely cottage , spotlessly clean & Covid safe . Our hostess Anne was exceptional so kind & helpful & her welcome pack was unbelievably generous. We would definitely recommend to friends & family.

Lochside Venachar for delicious food in a beautiful location. Balmaha & Rowardennan both lovely places to visit . Three Lochs Drive on Dukes Pass one not to miss .

A nice cottage which was immaculate and good facilities - for us, the only drawback was the constant noisy traffic but a good location. A lovely 'welcome pack' when we arrived was a generous gesture which we appreciated

Balhama is a must to visit, the Oak Tree Inn is set in lovely surroundings with fabulous fish and chips . . . also a must is the butcher in The Square in Drymen, the best beef ever! Lomand Shores is also an attractive scenic place to visit

Thank you very much for your comments, I'm delighted to know that you enjoyed your stay. Our roadside location makes the cottage an ideal base for getting out and about to explore everything this wonderful area has to offer. Once indoors, the thick walls and secondary glazing mean that noise is kept to a minimum and is seldom intrusive. I will pass on your compliment to David and Douglas at the butcher!
