“Cosy cottage with beautiful views”

Just returned from a lovely three night break at Pier Cottage. We had a fantastic stay - this cottage was perfect for a relaxing getaway and the view across the river is stunning. We were lucky enough to see a submarine come past too!

We explored Loch Lomond at a leisurely pace during the day and enjoyed having somewhere so private and cosy to come back to instead of a lodge in the middle of a holiday park.

The photos don't do this lovely cottage justice! The kitchen was very well equipped (we ate in every night and had everything we needed to cook), the bed was really comfortable and the huge roll top bath was lovely to come back to after a day out walking. We made good use of the two log burners too!

Millie was a very welcoming host and took the time to give us a tour of the cottage and information about the local area even though we arrived late.

We didn't want to leave and will hopefully be back in the future!

Brilliant cottage, this time of year warm and cosy and summer the views would be excellent. Very quite. Millie makes it feel very homely. Excellent place to stay for holiday ferry across to Gourock and then train to Glasgow and not far from Loch Lomond.

Third return visit, lovely area very relaxing, great scenery, great location overlooking the Clyde.

“Stunning house, view and everything you need for a super holiday”
Reviewed August 19, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

What a fabulous stay we had in this well equipped cottage and such a warm welcome from Millie and Findley! Nothing was too much bother for them and they made us more than welcome - especially all the little items left for our arrival. The views are second to none and there is always something sailing past on the River Clyde from submarines to paddle steamers and liners. The foot ferry is at the bottom of the garden and takes you over to Gourock. From here, with walking hardly any distance at all, you can get a ferry to Dunoon or the train to Glasgow. Inverary, Luss and Loch Lomond itself are all within a short distance and well worth a visit. You want for nothing as the amenities so close by include a fabulous butchers, a mini market, a bank, a café and a pub - all only just a few yards away. The scenery round the Lochs is breathtaking and well worth the journeys to see. We would have no hesitation in recommending this cottage and its owner to anyone wanting a fantastic holiday.

Accommodation and facilities absolutely fine. Large garden with decking and furniture to enjoy the views.
Owner very helpful and pleasant.
Will definitely use Pier Cottage again..
