October 7, 2017 by in

Great holiday in Loch Lomond in this lovely, cosy cottage (Crosskeys Cottage).  We’ve visited Inverary Castle, Loch Fyne (& restaurant), Stirling, Luss, Conic Hill, Glasgow and would recommend them all.  Helensburgh is a lovely town and we particularly enjoyed the Sugar Boat (restaurant) and the Tower Cinema.

Thanks for a great holiday,

Laura & Chris Hulme
