November 13, 2016 by in

A wonderful stay at Crosskeys Cottage.  Cosy & warm, a great home away from home from which we could base our adventures.

Day 1 – A climb up Ben Lomond was worth the beautiful views, with the added bonus of snow, it was truly magical.

Day 2 – We didn’t see the ‘fairies’ at Doon Hill but a lovely walk nethertheless, we believe they watched us on route.  Followed by a stunning view of the Bracklin falls in Callander.

Day 3 – A walk round the beautiful town of Luss, shorter easier walks but great views of the Loch from Beinn Dubh, and around the woodland.  Great dog friendly eateries at the ‘Village visit’ in Luss and the evening at the Drovers Inn for fun & live music.

We can’t wait to come again to explore more around Loch Lomond.  Thank you for a relaxing stay.

Zahra, Karen & JoJo (the dog!).
