We had the pleasure of staying in greenban for 3 nights in August. Firstly Bern has been excellent at providing great communication throughout our stay and was very quick in his responses to any questions we had. The house is very spacious and a has a fine blend of victorian and modern outlooks. Though we did not need to use the fire stove this would seem like a great addition. The only thing I would say is ideally to reach the house by day time as the single track Road was a slight challenge when driving through for the first time. This is what makes the place different to living in the commercialised areas nearby. Nature and lake beauty at its best.
We stayed here as a group of nine in July and absolutely loved it. It’s a beautiful, beautiful house - old but with a fantastic range of traditional and modern features. It really has everything that you need. And the setting is absolutely stunning- the views are wonderful! We all had a great time and would recommend it without hesitation!
Hidden by mountains and lochs and just over one hour's drive from Glasgow airport lies the beautiful Victorian cottage, Greenbank, Lochgoilhead.
Our family of 10 plus baby have just returned from an all-too-short week's holiday at this lovely cottage ideally situated overlooking the loch in Lochgoilhead.
It is located close to the dramatic scenery of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs national park; a spacious Victorian house full of character and fully equipped to meet all requirements. With its 6 bedrooms and lovely lawned gardens to the front and rear, it more than catered for our party with ages ranging from 9 months to 72 years old.
Our access to and from Greenbank was via a (relatively short) narrow road which, initially, was a bit hairy. However, after a few trips, we got used to it!
There are numerous and varied walking routes close to Greenbank and we didn't have to go far at all (literally behind Greenbank) to discover some beautiful views over Lochgoil to the Drimsynie estate on the other side. This estate offers various indoor and outdoor activities together with a reasonably-priced quality restaurant. For more casual meals, the Goil Inn at the head of the loch provides a full menu as well as a good selection of whiskies.
Before travelling to Greenbank we had looked at the video on YouTube showing the little deer running through the back garden. We were disappointed that we didn't see any deer during our time there, however, we did see a beautiful red squirrel foraging for food outside the living room window!
We would wholeheartedly recommend this area and specifically Greenbank to anyone who wants to experience either a relaxing or an active holiday in a beautiful house surrounded by majestic views of mountains and lochs.
We stayed at Greenbank during the July summer holidays and it is a lovely house. We had 4 families split across the 6 bedrooms - and there was plenty space! A beautiful large dining room meant that we could all come together and share our stories during meal times. The children LOVED the rope swing in the back garden (it's the simple things!) The kitchen was large with everything you needed to cook or graze. Lots of space and stunning scenery from nearly every room. Beautiful beautiful place and is well looked after by the owners who were also so helpful. There is also a holiday resort across the loch (about 10-15 minute walk) which you are able to use (small charge for some things) and this kept the kids (and adults) entertained in the evenings. Highly recommended. We ALL loved it!
This is a lovely big house to stay in has everything you need we spent 4 days here for a family wedding and had a great time ! It has a well equipped kitchen everything you need is there all the bedrooms are lovely and plenty of bathrooms and the view is just stunning. Would definitely stay here again.
