Another relaxing and fantastic stay in Glenfruin Lodge! The weather was glorious this year so lazy days were an easy option in the sunshine. A trip to Oban is always a highlight to get the gest Fish & Chips at the ‘Oban Fish & Chip Shop’ in George Street.

A day out on the Rosneath Peninsula is a great way to see the Argyll coast. A trip to Pitlochry has become a mandatory part of our holidays to visit Cafe Bibba and the Sweetie Shop! Balloch Country Park is well laid out and great location for local gentle walking.

A beautiful location and a great cottage – well done Alison & Craig for keeping things going and continuing to provide this ‘oasis’ during these difficult times.

Roddy & Sue, Hambletown, Kent.
