“Comfortable, clean and cosy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2013 for a stay in October 2013
2
people found this review helpful

We took our six month old baby for his first getaway here, was perfect. The attention to detail in the cottage meant we didn't want for anything and everything was immaculate. The area was beautiful, the view from the top of 'The Dumpling' was spectacular!! Loved being there, especially seeing the Loch washed in gorgeous autumn colours. Returning to the cottage and getting the wood burner roaring and settling down for a cosy night was the perfect end to the day. Couldn't rate this place more highly, we are really looking forward to another visit!

Comfortable accommodation, well equipped and warm. Friendly welcome from the owners after our late arrival. Goodies appreciated too. Beautiful views from upstairs bedroom. Trip up the Dumpling recommended.

We always recommend a trip up the small hill at the end of our driveway - known locally as The Dumpling - the views are terrific and its such a popular walk so we're glad you enjoyed it.

“An excellent rural retreat, and close enough to Glasgow and amenities to keep children amused!”

A beautiful cottage, in perfect condition, in a lovely, quiet setting. Great for families with kids, and close enough to places like Lomond Shores and Glasgow to ensure that there is enough of different kinds of activities, to keep everyone amused and content.

“Amazing cottage!”

My sister, a friend and me had a great time at The Old Dairy. Deborah and her partner have really thought through what a place needs to be perfect for a holiday. The fireplace, the beds, the bread and marmalade. All lovely. They were really helpful and nice hosts, living quite close by was quite handy for questions and sorting out the internet. Really recommend this place.

I remember the snow falling outside when you were with us so we're glad that you enjoyed the warmth of the cottage and the wood burning stove.

“Relaxing retreat in picturesque scotland!”

Just returned from a 2nd visit to the cosy accommodation of the Old Dairy. Pleased with the welcome touches of bread jam eggs etc, and the overall. Surprised at how much was included under self catering, so made the holiday trouble free and relaxing. Lots to see and do in the local area, and a breath taking view not too far away. Would definately recommend and already looking forward to visiting again. Deborah and Steve, have been a pleasure to deal with both before during booking and throughout the holiday.

“A little gem of a place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 for a stay in September 2013

person found this review helpful

We have just returned from a wonderful week in this fantastic new property. It had everything we needed and more, clean, well equipped and it is oh so warm due to the very modern insulation. There is a wood burning log stove which I was very eager to try out, but the place was so warm it would have been a waste to get it going. The shower is fantastic, it is powerful - always a bonus. The location makes it very handy for exploring the surrounding area and with a train station so near a bit of retail therapy in Glasgow can be squeezed in on the rainy days.
