What a gem of a Cottage it had everything we needed, enjoyed sitting outside in the peaceful garden.

Location is excellent for exploring different places. Lots of lovely nature walks in Balloch and Helensburgh.

We took the train to Glasgow which cost £7.00 each return and went on the City tour bus, more than we thought to see around Glasgow. Loch Lomond is a beautiful place to stay, we had a great time with fantastic views.
