We’ve had a lovely time here – both exploring the area, and staying in by the fire and watching films.  This is such a lovely and comfortable cottage (Crosskeys) – feels like a home away from home.  You’ve provided everything we needed – including some gifts under the tree! We feel very welcomed.

We’ve managed to pack our few days full – a lovely, frosty walk in Arrochar (No. 15 in the book provided – definitely recommend!) followed by an accidental (but no less enjoyable) trip to Stirling to see the castle.

Today we went to Dumbarton Castle, then on to the Glengoyne Distillery – another definite! Followed by a stunning drive along the loch.

Thank you for such a lovely stay, I will definitely recommend you to friends and family, and will hope to be back to explore some more!

Thank you!

As always a fabulous stay with wonderful hosts Alison & Craig
The Lodge was immaculate and comfortable and we all had a great time.

Conic Hill was a great trip with wonderful views over the loch and the boys
loved the trip from Balmaha to the island where they swam from the beach.

We will be back !!

Thank you Craig & Alison for a wonderful stay. Due to covid I had to travel alone, so it was just me and the dog.
Delma had the best time, we explored Helensburgh , we walked a couple the smaller bens.
We walked for miles on the John Muir way, I got to see friends and family too..

Thanks so much for your hospitality.
See you soon

What a brilliant cottage (Glenfruin Lodge) and a fab base for a week full of activities. I have to say what a lovely clean cottage this is and such friendly welcome.

A brilliant week’s weather, even the odd bit of sunshine which is always a bonus. Our first family holiday with our nearly 1 year old, and what a holiday it’s been. Thank you for the stay. If your looking for a place to eat not too far away, Balloch House Hotel is a much recommended place.

Thanks again, we may see you again soon.

Dear Craig & Alison,

Thank you for a very enjoyable stay – we have a great time at the Celtic Connections and also enjoyed walking part of the West Highland Way.  Visiting Dunoon and Rothesay as well of course the very special Birthday celebration on Burns night.

Cottage is brilliant – well placed, warm and efficient.

Thanks Again.

We have been very comfortable in this spacious accommodation (Glenfruin Lodge).  In a peaceful setting yet close to main roads, railway stations, a lovely town with useful shops and the stunning countryside.

The weather has been generally kind and we have had a very busy and delightful week.

We hope to be back again,

Celia & George, Hampshire.

“Fabulous, low-key, but characterful charm. The owners were right next door, never in our space but reassuringly there. They were relaxed about us having a dog, but we would always be respectful when in other people’s property. Loch Lomond is on the doorstep with all that amazing beauty. But special for me was seeing the Charles Rennie Macintosh’s designed house….Hill House on the outskirts of Helensburgh. All in all l would not hesitate in recommending this property to any of our nearest and dearest. Thankyou Alison for looking after us.”
