This was our first time visiting Scotland but it definitely won't be the last!  We arrived at Glenfruin lodge after a 6.5 hour drive and instantly felt at home.
The Lodge is spacious yet cosy with everything we needed for our week-long stay.  The bed is wonderfully comfortable, kitchen well stocked and the HUGE whirlpool bath and log burner were God sends after a long day out in the Scottish Highlands!
During our stay we visited:
- Bird of Prey Centre at Balloch - great value and very interesting.
- Sweeney's Cruises for a 1 hour cruise of Loch Lomond.
- RSPB nature reserve at Gartocharn (lovely walk).
- Lodge Visitors Centre at Aberfoyle for wonderful Red Squirrel viewing.
- Ben Lomond - still can't believe we climbed an actual mountain! Amazing experience & breathtaking views.
We also treated ourselves to fish & chips from the 'Wee Kelpie' in Helensburgh (delicious) and splashed out on the 8 course tasting menu at the Michelin star 'Martin Wishart' restaurant at Cameron House (amazing for us foodies!).
All in all our first visit to this beautiful country has been unforgettable - we are already planning to come back next year!  Glenfruin Lodge will definitely be our 1st choice of accommodation.
