Thank you Alison & Craig for a wonderful holiday here at Crosskeys.  The Cottage boasted everything we needed and more and was in a perfect location.

The weather has been surprisingly warm and sunny nearly non-stop this week!

We visited Balloch Castle Country Park, the lovely ‘Village Rest’ in Luss (nice scenes!) and climbed Conic Hill (and realised we were very unfit!).  We discovered a nice 2 hour walk starting from the back of the Hill House in Helensburgh that goes through woods & farmland that I’d recommend (google it!).

Thanks again for a great Scottish holiday.

Things to do

The Hill House (National Trust property) – Helensburgh

Charles Rennie Mackintosh was a revolutionary architect and designer and The Hill House is considered to be his domestic masterpiece. Mackintosh and his wife Margaret created almost everything, from the building itself to the furniture and textiles. More examples of his work can be seen in Glasgow.https://www.nts.org.uk/visit/places/the-hill-house
