The Old Schoolhouse
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 24, 2014

Just arrived back from a three night stay at The Old Schoolhouse and what can I say ... We had the most fantastic time !! We were a group of 13 ladies looking for the perfect getaway and this place gave us everything we could have possibly wanted and more !! The living and sleeping accommodation are simply stunning and the hot tub absolutely made our weekend. Claire and Graeme were so kind and helpful before our stay and I (like so many others in my party) cannot wait to return.

Thanks for a great weekend, we have been to the old school house a few times now and have never been disappointed.
Beautifully finished houses with everything you could need for a great holiday. The hot tub is a must, even in the winter.
Lovely part of the country with some amazing walks and scenery.
One of my favourite places to holiday in Scotland, we will def be back

We enjoyed our stay at old school house but there were a few issuse.....we went for 3 days including xmas day the cottage said the kitchen sat 8 but it only sat 6 the cuttlery was poor only 4 forks and 6 knives so we all didnt get to sit at the table for xmas dinner and sum of us had to eat with spoons, and the larger bed room had slats missin from bed and loose slats so when u turned over in bed the mattress would fall through , so it was disappointing as we were all looking forward to spending xmas together and having dinner at the table together. The owner seemed welcoming when we met so hope hes gets these issue's sorted.

Just back from a 3 night stay at this fantastic property. The pictures although great don't even do the property justice. The location is perfect secluded but close enough to walk for a pub lunch, scenery is stunning and the properties are more like a luxurious home from home than a holiday home as they have thought on everything to make your stay a fantastic experience. The hot tub was amazing and really made us feel that we had booked luxury cottages that were great value for money. The owners can't do enough for you even offered to drive over himself with extra towels for us. Honestly can't praise this place enough we booked 3 of the properties and can't wait to book again next year.

Modern accomodation not too far from Glasgow but far enough out that you feel you are away from the city. Nice big rooms with all mod cons like Wifi, SKY TV, BOSE speaker and Hot Tub. Robes in the rooms were a nice touch. Would recommend for groups of 4-6 people. A short distance away is a few good pubs in Drymen if you fancy getting out for a bit.

Thanks for a great weekend!!

This property has been refurbished to a very high standard and has Sky, Wi-Fi and a Bose docking station as well as the hot tub and is a great place to relax.

It is a great location for walking and pubs in Drymen are close by too.

As a group, we go away every year and have stayed in properties all over Scotland. We all agreed this was the best property we had stayed in so far and the owners, Claire & Graeme were very friendly and welcoming.

Our party of 8 enjoyed a wonderful stay at The Old Schoolhouse. The property is well finished and benefits from an excellent location that lends itself well to outdoor pursuits such as hillwalking and golf. My favourite feature was the outdoor hot-tub, the perfect way to relax after a long day.

I found the price very reasonable in comparison to other lodges I have booked, we will definitely be back!
