January 3, 2015 by in

We’ve had a lovely time here – both exploring the area, and staying in by the fire and watching films.  This is such a lovely and comfortable cottage (Crosskeys) – feels like a home away from home.  You’ve provided everything we needed – including some gifts under the tree! We feel very welcomed.

We’ve managed to pack our few days full – a lovely, frosty walk in Arrochar (No. 15 in the book provided – definitely recommend!) followed by an accidental (but no less enjoyable) trip to Stirling to see the castle.

Today we went to Dumbarton Castle, then on to the Glengoyne Distillery – another definite! Followed by a stunning drive along the loch.

Thank you for such a lovely stay, I will definitely recommend you to friends and family, and will hope to be back to explore some more!

Thank you!
