25th August – 1st September 2012

Warm, cosy, comfortable and quiet Glenfruin Lodge is in a good central location.  We enjoyed cycling the West Loch Lomond Cycle Path, treating ourselves to a coffee stop at ‘The Carrick’.  Our best day was cycling around the beautiful Loch Katrine.  We had a lovely sunny day, coffee was good at the cafe (we took our own bikes, but they can be hired at the loch).

This is our first trip to Scotland to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary.  We have had a lovely time and hope to return soon.

Many thanks Craig & Ally
