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.
