We thoroughly enjoyed are three days in Helensburgh made especially memorable by the excellent stay at Ballmillig House. The hosts were delightful, and we had many interesting conversations and help in planning where we should visit. The National Trust house within walking distance, was probably the most satisfying house I have visited - remarkable architecture and harmonious dedicated designs within.... More

Having visited in early September for the start of our big trip, John and Anne are the perfect hosts. We were given a warm welcome to their beautiful B & B, helped in with our luggage to our very delightful room, and offered a cuppa!! Everything in our room was thoughtfully done, bright, airy and a great ensuite. A very... More

I stayed here with my daughter prior to starting the John Muir cycle way which runs from Helensburgh to Dunbar. We could not have chosen better accommodation or hosts to set us on our journey. Anne and John could not have been more helpful with information about the area, reference books and vouchers available for dining out. They gave us... More

Many thanks for a great review. We're very pleased to have provided a good start for your big bike ride on the JM Way. We're keen to see more walkers and bikers use the route and of course to use the Three Lochs Way route which also passes our front door. Maybe we'll see you return to bike the TLW.... More

This was perhaps the nicest B&B I have ever stayed in. It was conveniently located within easy walking distance of the Helensburgh Central Station and Hill House. It was spotlessly clean, well appointed, including an iPad in our room and a very comfortable bed, and had comfortable common areas well stocked with information about the area and interesting books. Our... More

Full credit to the owners of this well appointed B&B. It is the attention to detail that most impresses, in addition to the friendly reception from both the owners. Faultless accommodation, good breakfast, quiet location, secure and sensible off road parking, comfortable beds in well decorated rooms and in ours your own ipad, helpfully preselected to the sites most used...

We were very impressed by the helpfulness displayed by John and Anne. The house was comfortable and clean with lovely grounds. A nice walk to town through charming neighborhoods led us to the waterfront with several very good restaurant options. We highly recommend Balmillig House!
