Well fitted kitchen, nice lounge, beds are comfortable, bathrooms are up to date and clean. And most of all: the owners are ery friendly and helpfull.
We only spent three nights in the cottage, but found it very cozy and in a great location for touring the west coast. The co-op is just down the road to get provisions for the well equipped kitchen.
Thank you David and Fiona!

We stayed here for a week and couldn't have been more happy with our choice. The owners are friendly, the cottage is well stocked, clean, cosy and in a stunning location. Easy walking distance from several pubs, restaurants, the local co op and of course the Loch and Balloch Castle Country Pub. Lots of information on local places to visit and places to eat available in the cottage. Would definitely recommend and would love to stay again. Thank you so much!
We had a very enjoyable stay in Balloch and were impressed by the cottage and it's facilities. It was clean, warm and each bedroom had it's own on suite. The weather was in the 20s, similar to that in Adelaide and the scenery was spectacular.
The chooks, dogs and ducks were classics and Fiona and David friendly and helpful.
Would recommend this cottage to anyone planning to stay near Loch Lomond
This delightful cottage is situated within walking distance from beautiful parkland and Loch Lomond. The cottage itself is spotlessly clean; cosy and tastefully decorated. There is everything you need and some things you may not have though you needed! Fiona, the owner is there to give you a warm welcome and check everything is ok. She has given a lot of consideration towards visitors and she certainly made us feel at home. There are shops and restaurants close by and buses and trains are very regular. I would love to go back sometime in the future.
