We had a lovely holiday at Glenfruin Lodge – such a beautiful area. We particularly enjoyed boat trips on Loch Lomond & Loch Katrine, we love Luss & Balmaha and had a tour round some of the Trossachs National Park.

A great place to stay!

What an amazing place perfect base for us and very welcoming.

Visited many areas of Loch Lomond, Luss, Balloch and love Balmaha. Walked up Conic Hill which was a challenge but amazing views across the loch. Ferry over to Inchcailloch island which was lovely giving different views of the loch (food at The Royal Oak was lovely).
Helensburgh was great to visit and amazing gelato at Vanilla and stroll along the front.

Perfect spot, will definitely revisit.

26th August – 31st August 2023

Once again Craig & Alison made us feel very welcome in their superb Lodge.
We were comfortable and wanted for nothing. Trips out included the Transport Museum and Kelvingrove in Glasgow.
Both were superb and the children loved it.
Loch Tay is beautiful and the boys enjoyed the water trampoline and also the Quay in Luss and wakeboarding on Loch Lomond. The Arboretum at Arkinglass on the way to Inveraray was a great walk for both adults and children.
A trip to Stirling rounded off the week .

Thank you again for a great week

Glenfruin Lodge unexpectedly became the place we both had to recuperate from being unwell. Sadly this meant we didn’t get to explore as much as hoped locally, but it did mean we took advantage of everything the cottage offered, which was everything we needed.
The garden and cottage between them are perfect and meant we still really enjoyed our stay. This, with Craig’s cheery disposition made a big difference to our stay.

Thanks for everything, Karen & Graham, Sydney, Australia

14th – 19th August 2023

Our third stay in the Cottage (our very first visit, we stayed in the Lodge). We love staying here.
As well as visiting old favourites, we found new things to do. We finally achieved our walk up Ben Goeb from Luss. A challenge but we made it! We did our fantastic Edinburgh Tattoo, driving to the Park ‘n’ Ride at Hermiston. We took a ferry across to the Isle of Bute from Wemyss, where we visited Mount Stuart and took a train from Balloch to Partick to visit the Riverside Museum – an amazing place and free entry. We also visited the Tall Ship while there.
We went across to Inchmurrin island on both friday’s by ferry and enjoyed a lovely meal in the Restaurant. Luss is as lovely as ever and we took the ferry across to Inchcailloch island with stunning views and enjoyed our picnic and paddle in Loch Lomond.

Alison & Craig, thank you once again for letting us stay in the cottage.
Still loads to come back for…

We had a wonderful week, the weather was alright for us.
In our home town it was raining cats & dogs.
In the Loch Lomond area it was alright
Glasgow was nice to visit, and thank you for suggesting the trip to visit Inveraray.

Many thanks
