We have had a lovely honeymoon here (Glenfruin Lodge), especially being greeted with a  bunch of flowers and a bottle of Prosecco!  Thanks Craig & Alison.

Cottage is perfect and there is everything you could need.  We would recommend walking up Conic Hill as the views of the loch were stunning!  Luss was a lovely stop off on the way to Inveraray and you get some great views up on the mountains.  We enjoyed a coffee at Cameron House – very fancy!  We also managed to go to Hill House before it closed for the season, worth a visit if you are a fan of Rennie Mackintosh.

Thank you for having us!
