24th – 28th April 2017

We’ve had a wonderful stay in this lovely luxurious cottage (Glenfruin Lodge).  Weather has been cold until 27th April and has improved nicely.

We recommend Cattle & Creel and La Barca in Helensburgh and Loch Lomond Hotel and Luss Seafood Bar in Luss.

Great places to visit – The Hill House in Helensburgh and Kelvingrove Museum & Art Gallery in Glasgow and a trip up the Loch from Luss.  A short cut to get to Luss – turn left at the roundabout here, then join the main road just before Luss.
