Gorgeous cottages overlooking Loch Lomond. The owner, Claire, is very warm and welcoming, she greeted us on arrival and made sure to speak to us again before we left. This is the second time we have been to Lorne Mill and cannot recommend it enough. The views are amazing and the cottages very well equipped. It was bliss to sit in the evening with the only noise the clock ticking.
Wonderful cottage with beautiful views. Couldn't believe how quiet it was. I mean really really quiet! Absolute bliss. Some great walks around the area and so lucky to have access to the surrounding grounds and woods. The walk into Balloch (about 3 miles) is well worth it. Look out for bench in the trees which offers some nice views over the Loch. It is possible to walk down to the Loch from the cottage although we went the wrong way but ended up following a path that took us on a nice walk through the woods. A good base for exploring. There is a train from Balloch (free parking) to Glasgow at a very reasonable £5.60 return. The owner Claire is such a lovely person. Very warm and welcoming. We felt very much at home. Cant wait to go back next year.
Really lovely old stone cottages at the foot of loch lomond - as part of the directions Claire sent us she mentioned rounding the corner to a stunning view over the loch before descending down to the cottages and she was spot on! Claire was the perfect landlord - there to greet us on arrival, around for a friendly chat (and useful local recommendations!) when required, but otherwise left us to it.
Cottage itself was well equipped and so so quiet inside thanks to the 3 foot thick stone walls. These did mean not a lot of natural light inside but you can get plenty of that outside gazing over the loch or on the numerous walks and activities available nearby.
Location wise we found it the perfect place to use as a base to explore the surrounding area, and while small would recommend nearby Balmaha for its coffee shop and pub restaurant.
It was a lovely retreat from the busy-ness of day to day life and we'd thoroughly recommend you to visit!
Had a fabulous 8 nights. Spent the first couple of days walking in the woodland and down to Balloch and lazing in the grounds. We drove out to Killin. Oban. Inverary and many other places. Falls of Falloch were well worth a visit. As was Kilchurn Castle. We had booked 7 nights but enjoyed it so much asked if the 8th night was free!
We have just recently had the pleasure of staying in Lui Cottage for a week & loved every minute. The cottage was beautiful & a pleasure to return to at night with so many extras which made all the difference!
The location of the cottages was ideal for us to explore the area with the amenities of Balloch only 10 minutes away. Not forgetting that stunning view over Loch Lomond from the bottom of the garden. We had a fantastic sunny September week & will hopefully return!
