Again, a thoroughly enjoyable week in the peaceful surroundings of Glenfruin.  The week brought the hottest day of the summer so far, and also the heaviest rainfall in a 24 hour period, and the Lodge was perfect for coping with both.
Well worth a visit to any Highland Games that take place in the area - Balloch, Rosneath & Inverary are all within an hour's travel.  Very easy to get into Glasgow for visits to places such as the Kelvingrove Museum and Art Gallery.  Plenty of great restaurants locally - our personal favourite is "Mira Mara", a small and modest looking establishment on West Clyde Street in Helensburgh which serves truly some of the best traditional Italian food anywhere in the UK! For scenery and walking, the Rosneath Peninsula, Lochgoilhead and Strachur are all within easy striking distance.  Outdoor theatre at the 'Hill House' in Helensburgh was very enjoyable.
Look out for the bats swooping over the garden at dusk - delightful to watch!  Sorry to be leaving but we will be back again...
