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).
