30th May – 6th June 15

June 6, 2015 by in

The accommodation in the Lodge is light and spacious – also well equipped.  Unfortunately we did not have particularly good weather for our weeks break.  We would certainly recommend this as a place to stay especially in view of inclement weather.

Everything we needed was easily acquired from Helensburgh.  We visited local sites – Loch Lomond, Loch Fyne, Loch Katrine and surrounding villages.

Would love to come again – but hopefully with better weather – views would be enhanced considerably.

Many thanks,

Pete & Sue, Oldham
