What a brilliant cottage (Glenfruin Lodge) and a fab base for a week full of activities. I have to say what a lovely clean cottage this is and such friendly welcome.

A brilliant week’s weather, even the odd bit of sunshine which is always a bonus. Our first family holiday with our nearly 1 year old, and what a holiday it’s been. Thank you for the stay. If your looking for a place to eat not too far away, Balloch House Hotel is a much recommended place.

Thanks again, we may see you again soon.
