“Clean, comfortable and in a great location”
Reviewed 6 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

My sister, husband and I stayed in this cottage for three nights in mid May. It was perfect for us. The cottage was not as isolated as the pictures would suggest, as it did face a side road. However, after 10:00 p.m. there was very little traffic and the cottage was quiet. The back was very private and green with the stream going through it. The location was really quite good as it was a short drive into town. Fiona was helpful with suggestions, was right next door, but not intrusive. Beds were comfortable, kitchen very well supplied and place was roomy. Lots of room to unpack suitcases and hang clothing up.
We enjoyed eating at the Balloch House and at Cucina. We took a boat trip to Luss and would highly recommend that. Beautiful little town, fascinating church yard and cute shops. Balmaha was well worth a trip.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 5 June 2018 for a stay in May 2018

The cottage is lovely and a perfect base to explore Loch Lomond and the surrounding areas. The owners were really friendly and welcoming. We had everything we needed and more for a relaxing few days away and our granddaughter loved playing pooh sticks under the cottage!

“Great base for exploring!”
Reviewed 17 April 2018 for a stay in April 2018

We stayed for a week and were very impressed by the amenities in the cottage. Fiona was extremely helpful on arrival and talked us through everything. Fiona and her husband were both on hand if we needed them but weren't intrusive at all. We had a great stay and will definitely book again!
