21st – 26th July 2013

July 27, 2013 by in

We’ve enjoyed our stay at Crosskeys Cottage.  Visited Helensburgh, Balloch, Luss (it’s pretty), up to Tarbet (took ferry across to Inversnaid), then over to Stirling Castle (worth a visit), up to Inverary (castle & jail and nice coffee, shops etc) stopped off at Loch Fyne on way back (picked up some yummy salmon).

In terms of dining, we liked the boathouse at Cameron House Hotel, good food plus beautiful setting and the Duck Bay Hotel again fab setting.
