Balmillig is a lovely B&B and a great starting point to visit Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. John and Anne did everything for a plleasant stay and gave us very good recommendations how to spend the days.

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.

Beds were perfect, rooms very comfortable. John and Anne gave good advice on where to go for the day. The breakfast was very good. The location is excellent to visit Loch Lomond, The Trossachs and Glasgow.

I am rubbish at writing reviews but have to say I stayed here for 2 night during my road trip of West Scotland, the whole place is 1st class, only 15 mins from Loch Lomand, walking distance of the town, accommodation outstanding with extremely accommodating hosts (Anne & John) and a great breakfast.

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. Breakfast was delicious (although my husband was disappointed there was no square sausage!) and tea/coffee on arrival was very welcome. The owners were very friendly, especially with our son, and particularly... More

My husband and I spent a lovely 3 nights in Balmillig House. Ann and John were very welcoming offering us tea or coffee on arrival. The B&B is about 40mins drive from the airport and a 10minute walk into Helensburgh shops. The bedroom and ensuite bathroom were a good size and spotlessly clean. There was a tv/dvd combo and an...

We stayed here for a family wedding on Loch Lomand. The owners were welcoming and hospitable and were great with our 1 yr old nephew. Rooms were clean, comfortable and fresh. Breakfast was delicious with lots of options. The only small negative was that our DVD player didn't work on our TV. I did forget to mention this to the... More

Thanks for an 'excellent' review. Apologies for the lack of DVD. We've had a look at the problem and I think we'll have to invest in a new machine so I doubt we would have been unable to make it function while you were here. We enjoyed your visit and were charmed, of course, by your young nephew. All the... More
