Lovely cosy cottage.perfect place to visit Argyll.

We would recommend Clyde St Cafe for an amazing full breakfast in Helensburgh, so good we went twice !!

A visit to Doune Castle is a must especially if you are a Monty Python fan.

Thank you Alison & Craig for the warm welcome. finding a christmas card and presents under the tree was a treat.

Thank you to Alison & Craig for a lovely stay at Glenfruin Lodge, very relaxing and enjoyable.

We have made the most of the lucky weather for January as most days were clear and sunny. We have seen some lovely views of the surrounding area, especially Luss, Balmaha (the Oak Tree Inn is definitely worth a visit, beautiful meal and very cosy).

We also visited Edinburgh and toured the castle with lots to see and experience. We decided to travel further afield taking in the magnificent views along the way to Fort William, Ben Nevis and Traigh beach which were amazing!

We also have had a lovely time in this beautiful cottage (Glenfruin Lodge) and we have slept like ‘logs’ in the huge comfy bed.  As we are not walkers we found that there was still plenty to do.  A drive up to Tyndrum to the Green Wellie was spectacular but beware, the RAF practice their low flying up there as we found out when a Hercules Carrier buzzed our heads only a couple of hundred feet above us, but to watch them go by was amazing.

As for eating out we found that the Queen of the Loch does a nice carvery and also theme nights.  Glenfruin Farm across the road does a really nice breakfast, a little dear but well worth the money.

Loch Lomond (the shores) is a nice place to shop – House of Fraser, Regatta etc..  Henry Bell (Wetherspoons pub) in Helensburgh is also ok to eat (cheap & cheerful).  Also got train into Glasgow, 2 return tickets for £14 from Helensburgh Central.

We sincerely hope to return.

and above all we had sunny weather.
The Cottage was perfect, We are now off to Mull.

Greetings, Geraldine & Stern

25th – 30th July 2022

It was a pleasure to stay at the fully equipped Glenfruin Lodge.  We did and saw many things during our one week stay.

We drove the full circle around the National Park.  We went to Oban for a day and Fort William for a day as well.  The drive through Glen Coe (the valley, not the village) was outstanding!

Arienne and Paul walked the first part of the Three Lochs Way (from Balloch to Helensburgh) and Paul climbed to the summit of Ben Lomond. Tough hikes, but amazingly beautiful and recommended!

One day Elise went pony trekking at Rednoch (near Port of Menteith).  It was fun and they particularly keep your level of skill in mind.

Maisie (the cat) visited us from time to time, snoring all the time…  she was kind of like a second host.

Thank you very much!
