21st – 28th December 2013

December 28, 2013 by in

What a find this turned out to be – couldn’t believe our luck.

Well appointed, parking space for at least 2 cars & the cottage itself tastefully decorated with a super shower & spacious double bedroom.  I am also told that the sofa bed was very comfy too.  The piece de resistance though, the wood burner in the sitting room.  It was so cosy I’m surprised we left the cottage, but we checked out the Lomond Arms Hotel in Luss and the Duck Bay Marina near Balloch.

We also had a walk around the grounds of Cameron House Hotel and watched the sea plane head off to the Kyles of Bute.  We also watched the birds of prey demonstration that was presented at Cameron House too.

As we didn’t have to travel far, we had no issues with the weather or commuting on work days (for some!) and would recommend this pretty cottage with it’s great amenities and locale to everyone we meet.

Thanks a million – loved it!
