The Balmillig House was a very comfortable stay for us. The House is very clean and well decorated with lots of local art. We loved the garden outside with all the lovely flowers and could tell that great care went in to taking care of everything.

We stayed here from the 7th Aug 2016 for 4 nights. We had a warm welcome on arrival by John & Ann. They did all they could to help you, with their extensive knowledge of the local area. Breakfast was lovely. The whole house including our room were spotless. I would recommend this B&B to anyone. Thanks Ann & John... More

This was where we began the John Muir Trail. Our hosts were very knowledgeable about the trail and very helpful. It was a great place to start our trek. We arrived a little early but Anne and John were flexible and welcoming.

Stayed here for two nights with our 16 month old son while attending a wedding on Loch Lomund. All rooms are beautiful with everything you need for your stay.
