22nd May – 29th May 2021

We’ve had such a lovely week staying at this beautiful cottage. Such a comfortable place to stay with everything so tastefully decorated and equipped with all you could possibly need… and more!

We visited Loch Lomond, Luss and Arrochar; took a train trip on the West Highland Line to Oban (stunning scenery) and had a great fish lunch; but the highlight was going to Inverary on the loveliest sunny day and climbing the hill to the folly at the top – the views were breath taking and the bluebells throughout the woodlands beautiful.

We will definitely recommend this lovely place!
