    The cottage was lovely, very clean and comfortable and warm. The kitchen was very well stocked with utensils and we had plenty of towels. We loved the location with the river running behind the property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely like to stay again in the future. Just a couple of things that are worth a mention . We thought that a mat inside the front door and the patio doors would be helpful on wet days to save the floors, And also an extracter fan in the upstairs bathroom to stop the tiles from steaming up. Also we had a surprise visit from a bat in the middle of the night flying up and down the stairs (it just happened to be Friday 13th !) We didn't mind the bat at all but future visitors might. All in all a lovely stay.

    The carpet on the stairs leading to the kitchen was lose and needed repair, not enough seats for everyone to be able to watch tv and the electric shower gave up during its first use never to work again. Apart from that a great place to stay.

    We enjoyed our stay very much. The cottage was spacious, clean, well equipped in the kitchen. Having the 2 ensuites and the large family bathroom makes the cottage perfect for families of all ages. It was great to have the wifi connection, an added bonus for everyone.

    We stayed in the Cottage for 2 weeks in August. It's a lovely old but modernised house. We stayed with another family and it was plenty of rooms for everyone. Kitchen was well equipped and all the appliances worked well. There were books and DVD's and also board games which we used a lot in the evening. The location was perfect to get to Ben Lomond, Balloch, Luss and not far from Glasgow and Edinburgh. We enjoyed our stay very much and I would't hesitate to recommend this Cottage to friends.

    This is a spacious, comfortable, and very well-equipped cottage which we were sorry to have to leave. Despite a week of poor weather, we had a very enjoyable stay, and would love to go back! It would be great to have the opportunity to use the barbecue and sit out on the decking area overlooking the burn. Perhaps next time!

    Lovely cottage, great location. It was disappointing the open burner fire didnt work. this would have added to the experience. For a cottage that holds 8 there were only ever 4 seats in each room. Overall a great cottage and lady with keys was lovely and helpful.

    Excellent cottage! My family came here to Celebrate my fathers 60th and it was truly magical and we created lovely memories. It is only a few minutes away from Drymen and we would recommend the Drymen Inn for a meal. Beautiful cottage and it had everything we needed. We're hoping to all go back next December again.
