We’ve had a lovely week at Glenfruin Lodge.  The Lodge is beautiful and very well equipped.  The fire and whirlpool bath were both lovely added bonuses!

We visited Balloch and took a boat tour around the loch.  Luss is worth a visit as it is a beautiful place and there are some lovely walks.

Inverary is a lovely place for a day trip – the scenery on the way is breathtaking.  The castle and jail in the town are also worth the money.

Thank you for a lovely week, we will be back!
