“Warm Welcome”
Reviewed September 9, 2006

Stayed here on the first night of our West Highland Way walk, arrived to find a small but comfortable and clean room, tea and biscuits when we wanted them, and a good breakfast the following morning. There was also a hot tub available. This was good value accommodation.

  • Liked — Easy going atmosphere, comfortable.
  • Stayed September 2006, traveled as a couple

Hello,

I cant believe its nearly six years ago & i'm just learning how to use tripadvisor. I'm slowly but surely coming out of the dark ages.

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment - especially as you were the first ones to do so!

Many thanks again & hope your well,

Liz

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Liz Bates moved to Balmaha in 1986 & has called it home ever since. Shortly after moving she opened up her home as a Bed & Breakfast to weary walkers, tourists, fishermen & anyone who needed a room for the night. Twenty five years later & she's still greeting guests from day one back into her home with tea, scones, home baking & her legendary hospitality - with the welcome addition of a hot tub & a few more mod cons to bring the 200 year Cottage into the 21st century. Along the road she has seen countless things & told many a story, served thousands of breakfasts, baked enough scones for the entire Jubilee celebrations, washed & dried any soggy walkers clothes who turned up on her door, fought of the dreaded midge & made a good few friends - all in the name of Bay Cottage Bed & Breakfast and Liz Bates.If you are walking The West Highland Way or visiting the east side of Loch Lomond then you will find Balmaha a lovely village lying at the foot of Conic Hill, which forms part of the West Highland Way Route. The picturesque bay is sheltered and is a perfect haven for sailing and many other water sports. The Village offers many facilities for visitors and walkers and has a large free car park in the centre. Bay Cottage is located opposite The Oak Tree Inn which has a fine reputation for beer and food and is open all year round. At Bay Cottage we welcome walkers, cyclists or anglers and have all the facilities for muddy boots and wet clothing after a long day outdoors. We also have a Hot Tub on the decking which is freely available to all our guests. Costumes and dressing robes are available if you need them. Afternoon tea and home made scones can be served in the conservatory on arrival or after a hard days walking and is included in our bed and breakfast charge. Bay Cottage is a wonderful base for exploring Loch Lomond or visiting the Trossachs with its many miles of cycling and walking routes. We are only 7 miles from Rowardennan and the start point for those wanting to climb Ben Lomond, the most southerly Munro (mountain over 3000ft, 910 metres) in Scotland. We also have drying facilities for boots and clothing if you have been caught in the rain or taking part in water sports on the Loch. Balmaha is a quiet and peaceful village but is only 40 minutes from the centre of Glasgow or just over an hour from Edinburgh. Whatever your reason for visiting this beautiful area we will try to make your stay with us as comfortable as possible and look forward to welcoming you to Bay Cottage in Balmaha. ... more   less
