We were looking for somewhere convenient to Loch Lomond and found this delightful cottage about 5 miles away. Paul and Mabel were wonderful hosts and our bedroom, at the back, had views over open countryside. The accommodate was spotlessly clean and after a day out it was lovely to come back in the evening and relax in the lounge in... More

We arrived having ended an exhausting week travelling through the Scottish Highlands and couldn't have picked a better final stay near Loch Lomond for our final leg back down to Glasgow and later England. Mabel and Paul Lindsay, the owners, are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Paul will help you create an itinerary for your travels - his local knowledge will... More

Paul and Mabel have turned a 220 year old building (a former workman's cottage) never intended for accommodation by today's standards into a very comfortable three bed Bed and Breakfast with en suite, which is nicely located near Loch Lomond. Both Paul and Mabel are on hand during the day if you need any advice and/or information to help you... More

We stayed here while I was attending a conference at Ross Priory. It is a clean, quaint little spot with friendly and helpful owners. Breakfast was great and I am vegetarian and they accommodated me without any problem. They had tips about directions and things to do in the area, and they were very friendly. We recommend you take a... More

We chose this cottage based on the excellent reviews found on Tripadvisor. Boy, were we disappointed. The biggest issue was the very uncomfortable, spring-ridden bed! There was only a mattress-without a box springs, and you could feel the springs poking your back. In our opinion, a comfortable bed is the most important criteria for a positive rating, thus our low... More

I stayed here for 1 night with my Mum. We were welcomed into this very homely cottage. It was spotlessly clean and we could not have asked for better service. We stayed in the ground floor twin room which was very spacious with a good size ensuite shower room. The breakfast was delicious too. Will definitely be back if I'm... More

Stopover on our way up to the Highlands. How could you stay in a Hotel when you could stay somewhere like this? Paul and Mabel are such friendly hosts, lots of local knowledge and provide a delicious breakfast to get you started on the day. Highly recommended.

Spotlessly clean room and en suite. Rooms not huge but more than adequate for our needs. The lounge dining room with open fire was a treat, the fire was lit all the time we were there, really cosy and welcoming. Our hosts were just fantastic, could not have been more helpful. We will definitely stay again if visiting the area.

We stayed here as we were attending a function at Ross priory. The house was immaculate and the owners were fantastic-they couldn't do enough for us. Fire in lounge was kept lit at all times, offering a cosy welcome and Paul and Maybel were absolute fantastic hosts; very friendly and extremely accommodating. No hesitation in recommending here-would definitely stay again.... More
