This gorgeous apartment combined all the comforts of home with the top quality facilities you would expect in a premier hotel. No detail has been overlooked, from the high quality crockery and glassware to the comfortable beds and huge TV! It really offered the best of both worlds and exceeded our expectations. Our host Mabeth was delightful and welcoming and the setting was just gorgeous! We would have no hesitation in returning here or recommending it to friends. A five star experience all round!

We loved the convenient yet secluded location of Loaninghead. The rooms are large, clean and perfectly set up. Mabeth gave us a warm welcome and a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning. Everything in Loaninghead was spacious, from the grounds to the dining room and lounge.

Flew to Scotland 5/16 for my nieces wedding at The Cruin. My sister in law booked us here. We stayed in Apple Cottage and it is 1st class all the way. Lovely and spacious, the beds comfortable (we loved the comforters), bathrooms plentiful (although the master bathroom has the tiniest shower I have ever seen), beautiful scenery. The town is about 3 miles away along the main road but walking there is easy - it's walking home that is a bit difficult. The Buchanan Arms has a great spa/fitness you can use which was excellent as well. For us it was perfect except when we were ready to leave. That's when they came to read the meter and charge us for or power usage. The expense for that week was more than I pay for in a month in the US! In all fairness they probably told my sister in law when she booked it but it would have been nice if it was in the fancy information book in the kitchen or a notice in the mudroom!

We find a huge variation in guests’ usage of gas. For this reason we feel it is fairer to charge gas ‘at cost’ as an extra at the end of the stay, based on actual recorded measurements of consumption. That way the more economical guests are not subsidising the more extravagant users as so often happens when an ‘all-in rental’ figure is quoted. All-in rentals tend to build in a fuel allowance based on average to high usage. Our system means you only pay for what you use.

we had a wonderful week staying in the Stable. My son Daughter in law grandaughter and I found everything finished to a high standard and all we needed to make our stay good. The location was ideal for sightseeing. We would really recommend this accomodation to anyone, sure it would suit all sorts.

My partner & I booked a self catering weekend break at the Bothy. When we arrived Mabeth informed us that as the roof was being repaired we were being upgraded to Apple House, all I can say was wow!! The house is beautiful, well equipped, very high standards, words cannot express what it is like. The cottage is very spacious house ideal for a families but also great for couples. Mabeth is an excellent hostess even putting hotwater bottles in the bed to warm it up for us. The information pack is really useful even to the point of having a weather forecast in it. The village of Drymen is not very far where there is a butcher's shop (steaks were beautiful), convenience store, post office & several places to eat also where the Spa is that you have free use of during your stay, though we didn't get a chance to experience it (maybe next time). Loch Lomond is close & while there try a walk up Conic Hill where the views are breath-taking, be advised it is a very long steep walk but worth it even if you can manage halfway like me but my partner made it to the top & we have some lovely photos. All I can say is thank you Mabeth & I would recommend your accommodation to everyone. Jane & Robert, Livingston West Lothian

Just had a wonderful overnight stay close to the east shore of Loch Lomond,whilst touring with my Canadian cousin and her partner.Loaninghead is the place to be it makes a very good base.Mabeth and Malcolm made all four of us most welcome and told us the places to visit and where to eat too,they sent us to Drymen to see the oldest pub in Scotland, we also dined there too (good food) WE WILL be recommending Loaninghead to all our family and friends as it is one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in for a long time. 11/10 not many can beat that!!
