My wife and I had a brilliant stay at Balmillig, staying for 2 nights in early April. The B&B is small and homely which really added to its charm and meant that we enjoyed comfortable and quiet nights after hard days hiking in near by Loch Lomond. Anne and John were brilliant hosts, full of really helpful tips and made... More
