We just had a really good stay here. It's nice and quirky staying in a converted church. Frances our hostess was great. Breakfast was good as well. Couldn't recommend Kip in the Kirk highly enough. Village of Drymen was nice for the pub as well.

Kip in the Kirk – sleep in the converted Old Church. We have an en suite family room and a double room with private facilities. The large rear hall can accommodate 8 guests in full size bunks, with bed linen, towels and 2 lovely new shower rooms. We will be delighted to welcome you all with tea and homemade scones. Our bunk room is ideally suited to walkers on a budget, families or groups of friends travelling together. A first class continental breakfast will set you up for the day ahead, with freshly prepared items including our next door neighbour’s famous homemade marmalade.
