Despite ‘challenging’ weather, we’ve had a wonderful few days in this peaceful, well-appointed and well-located cottage (Glenfruin Lodge).
Spent a tranquil evening on the deserted shore of Milavvochy Bay/Balmaha. Hill House is superb. Enjoyed the scenery of the Trossachs and a stroll around Callander.
The ‘Tullie’ in Balloch offers good value, unpretentious food. The Boathouse at Cameron House is recommended.
A family wedding at Ross Priory brought us here and, hopefully, we’ll be back.
