5th – 19th August 2023

August 19, 2023 by Alison in

Our third stay in the Cottage (our very first visit, we stayed in the Lodge). We love staying here.
As well as visiting old favourites, we found new things to do. We finally achieved our walk up Ben Goeb from Luss. A challenge but we made it! We did our fantastic Edinburgh Tattoo, driving to the Park ‘n’ Ride at Hermiston. We took a ferry across to the Isle of Bute from Wemyss, where we visited Mount Stuart and took a train from Balloch to Partick to visit the Riverside Museum – an amazing place and free entry. We also visited the Tall Ship while there.
We went across to Inchmurrin island on both friday’s by ferry and enjoyed a lovely meal in the Restaurant. Luss is as lovely as ever and we took the ferry across to Inchcailloch island with stunning views and enjoyed our picnic and paddle in Loch Lomond.

Alison & Craig, thank you once again for letting us stay in the cottage.
Still loads to come back for…
Sue & Tim, West Sussex
