My husband and I stayed in Apple Cottage for a week and fell totally in love with the cottage and the location.
This was a spur of the moment thing for us as we had been travelling and were supposed to be going camping, but as usual the weather in Scotland was in a huff and so we just stopped in on the way past and the owner, Maybeth could not have been more helpful.
Apple Cottage has 3 bedrooms, a large lounge with a living flame fire and the most beautiful view. The bedrooms are all spacious and everything in the cottage is furnished to the highest standard. The kitchen has a huge RANGEmaster cooker, which I loved as well as a huge RANGEmaster fridge/ freezer where you can get crushed ice!
All the crockery, glasses, ovenware etc are excellent quality and it's obvious that the whole cottage has been furnished with TLC.
It's an excellent base from which to explore Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Aberfoyle is a 10 minute drive away, Drymen, which has nice restaurants and cafes is a 5 minute drive, and Loch Lomond and Balmaha is 15 minutes maximum.
My husband and I have stayed in many self-catering cottages, but this is one of our favourites by far, and we're already looking forward to coming back.
