What a fantastic little Cottage, Crosskeys is. Everything you could want and need is here.
The surrounding area is outstanding. Helensburgh nearby handy for all your shopping needs and lovely meals at the Commodore on the sea front.
We visited Inveraray and could not believe the scenery at every bend in the road, breathtaking !!
We went to Fort William and on to Ben Nevis, managed to walk/climb to point A only brilliant though.
We did The Falkirk Wheel and the Kelpies, all well worth the visit.
A trip on Loch Lomond from Luss was fab and the village is fantastic, Balmaha was lovely, could spend all day driving around and to come back here each evening was lovely.
Thank you so much
Beautiful little cottage. Everything you need supplied apart from food and drink, there was a pint of fresh milk in the fridge which was a welcome bonus, Washing machine really useful but no washing line to hang it out, but pegs supplied under sink though. It has its own dedicated wifi, which works a treat, The cottage is next to a small roundabout and you could just hear the traffic in and out but didn’t detract from the cottage. Grassed area where you can sit and round the side a barbecue and small area with table and chairs. Would we consider booking again? Definitely
