Rowantree Cottage Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #11 of 16 Arrochar B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Bill and Irene are fantastically friendly, dog tolerant and the breakfasts are amazing. Room really comfortable and cosy with great views of the Cobbler. Just perfect. We have stayed there four times now on our way up or returning from further north and this would always be my first choice.

I have to agree with the other rewies, as this is really a cosy, nice, clean place with a great view on the lock. And the full scottish breakfast was fresh and rich, everything was good. So it is a perfect address if you are sleeping in Arrochar - and looking for great value accomodation.

We arrived in Arrochar late afternoon and discovered that the B&B we had booked said they hadn't received our booking. We did a quick (and panicky) reccy of the area and liked the look of Rowantree Cottage. After knocking on the door we were made to feel very welcome by the owner who showed us to a very nice dormer bedroom with a FANTASTIC view overlooking Loch Long. The room was very comfortable with a double bed, and large en suite shower room. There was a chaise longue in the seating area together with a TV but this only had two channels for some reason. However with the view of the loch available from the bedroom window seat we didn't need the TV!! There was a very smokey smell inside the room, we're unsure as to whether this was caused by a wood burning stove somewhere else in the house. Anyway, we had a smashing breakfast the following morning and a lovely chat with the owner before we went on our way.Parking is available within the grounds and although there isn't much in the way of entertainment locally we did find the Village Inn (a 15 min walk away)which served a wonderful evening meal, followed by a very watchable Scottish/Irish folk duo performing in the bar. All in all it was a very pleasant night's stay, considering we had visions of sleeping in our car after the other (booked) B&B denied all knowledge of us!! A big thank you to the owner of Rowantree for accommodating us at such short notice.

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay at Rowantree Cottage. I was pleased that you had a comfortable and enjoyable stay with us and registered your very positve comments in our visitors book. I'm sorry you had only two channels on your TV. It's a pity you didn't mention it to us at the time as the TV receives analogue and digital TV and radio channels(Freeview). There are instructions in the room to change the TV from analogue to digtal.

We hope to see you again

Stayed in Rowantree Cottage in the family room, which was perfect for the four of us. The hotek is ideally located for those who wamt to climg the Cobbler or just enjoy the great views if the Loch and the surrounding fells. The service was great and the hosts were very hospitable. Lived the breakfast, too.

Charming cottage. Great host. The rooms were a good size and well equipped. A real family feel (they only use two rooms for B&B). Fine breakfast. The pub food across the street was good value. Overall highly recommended!

Wished I could have stayed more than one night. A big room and bathroom, delicious Scottish breakfast, and warm and friendly hosts.

We stopped at this B&B as we were driving through so we didn't do too much sight-seeing in the area. It's located on the shores of Loch Long and close to Loch Lomond. The Thompson's were very pleasant and helpful, and the room and bathroom were one of the largest that we stayed in throughout the UK.

(Not to be confused with another B&B in the area by a similar name, Rowantree Bank)

We wished we had another night to spend here!
