    Really enjoyed staying at the cottage and would stay again. The only major problem was the dishwasher which stopped working after one wash.

    This cottage is in a beautiful location and was extremely comfortable. We could happily have moved in permanently! The owner was nearby and very helpful. We had a great holiday.

    Having just returned from Scotland and this wonderful property we would have no hesitation in recommending The Buchanon School house . The property can easily accommodate eight people and is very well equipped, The surrounding area is beautiful and is a ideal base for exploring Loch Lomond , The Trossachs and beyond. We all enjoyed the rear lounge of the property and listening to the flowing river. Would highly recommend The Drymen Inn for a fantastic meal. Thankyou very much to the property owners, We would most definitely return..
