Gorgeous lochside location, clean, comfortable home and friendly, helpful host. Brilliant weekend of triathlon training!
We’ve just returned from our family Arrochar Mini-Break, having spent 3 nights in the Lodge owned by Douglas.
The Lodge itself was very good, comfortable, roomy and warm.
Douglas was the perfect host - after sending us concise directions on how to find the Lodge, he was also there to greet us upon our arrival.
The Lodge is perfectly located for those brave souls who like to explore the surrounding area - including walking up and around the mountains, forests, etc.
There’s a small convenience store in the village (approx’ 5 mins drive) along with a couple of restaurants and a Chippy.
The Lodge boasts a beautiful location right alongside Loch Long, which is a lovely sight when you awake and also at sunset!!!
We’re discussing the possibility of returning to the Lodge later this year, hopefully for a longer stay, so we can explore more walks around Loch Lomond.
We conquered “The Cobbler “ this weekend - a very long and challenging walk for us beginners, but well worth the toil for the spectacular scenery that you take in along the way.
I would definitely recommend this place.
Loved the lodge. Everything you could wish for. Bed extremely comfortable. Log burner in living room and views over Long Long breathtaking! Owners were lovely and extremely helpful. It was our wedding anniversary and there was a bottle of champagne awaiting us on our arrival. The weather wasn't particularly good for the week we were there but didn't mind as the area is so beautiful and loved the lodge itself. The peace and quiet was worth its weight in gold!
The setting was beautiful and peaceful. Stunning scenery. Lovely for walking and drives. Handy for some fantastic Munro's as well as Loch Lomond. My tip visit The Falloch Falls and if your brave enough like my son, take a swim in them, then retire for a drink and cheesy chips at the 17th C Drovers pub nearby.
We booked this chaletand the house (30 second walk from this property) as a group of 12 to spend New Year away as we fancied doing something new.
Douglas is a perfect host who couldn't do enough for you and nothing was too much effort.
The main appeal about this place is the location. Right on Loch Long with decking going out onto the water.
There is also a excellent hot tub and decking area just behind the house with views onto the Loch.
The chalet comprises of a double room with two twin rooms. A large living area which is well kitted out.
We will certainly look to return in the near future.
Thanks again Douglas for a brilliant weekend!
