At last we can travel! 3 nights here on route to northern highlands. Crosskeys Cottage is a very well appointed cosy cottage, well placed to visit the area – Balloch and Luss lovely.

Covid is still casting its shadow, but the friendliness and welcome here has been fab.

We hope that life will get back to normal, and once again we can enjoy a life without ‘2metres’ and masks.

Stay safe, and enjoy this wonderful cottage.
