Comments from our Guestbook

The accommodation in the Lodge is light and spacious – also well equipped.  Unfortunately we did not have particularly good weather for our weeks break.  We would certainly recommend this as a place to stay especially in view of inclement weather.

Everything we needed was easily acquired from Helensburgh.  We visited local sites – Loch Lomond, Loch Fyne, Loch Katrine and surrounding villages.

Would love to come again – but hopefully with better weather – views would be enhanced considerably.

Many thanks,

Glenfruin Lodge has been the best cottage we have ever stayed in, in the loveliest of locations.  Made perfect by the frequent visits of Maisie, the cat.

We enjoyed wonderful boat trips from Luss and Balloch with very knowledgeable commentary.  We took two train journeys: one to Oban and the other to Blair Atholl.  Spectacular views surrounded us, especially on our journey to Oban.

We will definitely be back.

Thank you!

We arrived to a warm welcome and a nicely presented cottage (Lodge).  The Cottage came with everything we wanted and the whirlpool bath was a nice additional after a long cold walk!

The Sea Life Centre was good in Balloch.  A walk up to the Cobbler from Arrochar was excellent but the snow became quite deep at the very top, views were incredible.  Almost lost the Hire Car though as Loch Long flooded into the car park!

Tried to walk to Ben Vorlich next day but the path was hard to find from the dam at Loch Sloy.  However, the dam and the valley is impressive .

Loch Fyne is a good place to eat too, only place that seemed to serve a selection of seafood.

The sleeper train is a great way to travel too!

Thank you.  It was a great time, we enjoyed our honeymoon.  Alison & Craig are very friendly.  We visited Loch Lomond and Glen Fruin, the view was very stunning, even if it’s cloudy or rainy.

Like the last people, this was a surprise from my husband.  I have family in Helensburgh and Stirling.  Had a wonderful week, weather was brilliant and the Lodge was really lovely.  In fact my sister in law and brother wanted to move in!

It was really nice catching up with my family and there was everything you could think of in the lodge, really loved it – in fact might even try and come back later in the year.

My partner brought me here for a treat, for my Birthday and I could not have asked for a more perfect present.
We have loved staying in this Cottage. The Cottage is well kept, the bed is unbelievably comfy and the view is incredible. We have loved exploring and having such a gorgeous warm and comforting house to come home to.

Thank you for having us !!!

Dear Craig & Alison,

We have had a fantastic week here in your lovely cottage.  Yogi (our black labrador) really enjoyed himself especially in the snow which was great.  We’ve done loads of walking, will be good to have a rest!  Would recommend to friends and family.
