Thank you for a  lovely stay!  Very relaxing!  Such a well appointed and equipped cottage (Glenfruin Lodge).  Central to everything.

Walks included Ben Lomond and The Cobbler.  Unfortunately mixed weather prevented more exploration on foot!  Toured the Trossachs and also visited Glasgow for the day.  Very convenient park and ride at Kelvinbridge Car park which is close to some galleries and museums.

Local visits included The Hill House, Geilston Gardens, a cruise on Loch Lomond, Luss, Arrochar.  Lots of things to do and see in such an idyllic setting.
