We stayed here just for one night on our way further north. We were four adults and two dogs and were very comfortable indeed and made to feel very welcome. The photos on the Finglen website do not do justice to the surroundings or the house. The drive is shared with a current or former 'Schoenstatt' (Beautiful Place) community who knew what they were doing when they chose this spot. Inside the house is warm and welcoming and clearly a well loved and well lived in family home. We were lucky to see it still decorated for Christmas with log fires and a huge Christmas tree. It is more than 'dog friendly' - it is 'dog appreciative'. The bedrooms are large and very comfortable indeed. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious breaksfast and lingered over conversation with Sabrina one of the owners. Sadly we only had one night to spare other wise it is the kind of place where you could simply unwind and relax for days without noticing the time passing. We cannot thank them enough for their hospitality.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Finglen House nestles at the foot of the spectacular Campsie Hills just 30 minutes north of Glasgow & 10 minutes from the National Park, 30 minutes from Loch Lomond. Finglen enjoys an idyllic setting bordered on one side by the Fin Burn, home to herons, dippers, Grey wagtail and mallard, and on the other by mature woodland. The beautiful eight acre garden gives a feeling of complete seclusion, rare for a property so close to Glasgow. Finglen provides an excellent base for expeditions to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Stirling or for exploring and experiencing the sublime beauty of Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. You could ride your bike all the way to Edinburgh or Glasgow without touching a road. Douglas works as a documentary cameraman and has travelled extensively in Scotland and is happy to give advice on expeditions further afield. ... more less
