Thank you for taking the time to leave comments for us. It means a lot to us to hear that our guests have enjoyed staying here as much as we have enjoyed looking after them.

Service was brilliant: we were picked up after our evening meal and returned to the same spot to start our walk next day. The accommodation is outstanding: beautiful room with amazing facilities, toiletries, towels etc. Quality, range and amount of food at breakfast were all first class and well presented.

After a busy first full season as B&B hosts we have finally found time to sit down and have a proper read through all the guest comments we have been receiving. Thank you for taking the time to write them - it is very encouraging.

Giving lifts to and from Rowardennan is one of the things Chris really enjoys doing as it offers a few minutes to find out who our guests are, what their plans are and how they are enjoying their holiday.

We stayed for one night and it was the first holiday with our little one. A warm welcome when we arrived. Happy to find a nice cosy bedroom and we also had the use of the living space down stairs. All essential items for a baby were provided and even extras, which was a thoughtful touch. Every effort had been made for attention to detail and it made our stay even more comfortable. Breakfast was amazing, so much selection and all freshly prepared.......it was very good, probably the best breakfast we have ever had at a B&B.......the freshly baked bread was delicious! We will be back again as it's a great place to stay with a baby and to go out and explore the area.

We were at the Shepherd´s House at the 2nd day of our walk at the WestHighlandWay. We had a warm welcome from Jenny and we get a small, but very lovely room with a bathroom. There was everything you need after a long walk- tea and coffee facilities, biscuits and Jenny gave us some cold milk. In the bathroom were shampoo, showergel, soap and so on from a special biologic company. There were also slipper and Bathrobe for the guest, We had a good quiet night there and at the morning there was a great breakfast- we could choose the breakfast at the night before- everything you want! Its the perfekt stay- specially for walker and we can recommend this guesthouse!

Thank you for taking the time to offer us feedback via Tripadvisor. It has been a busy year and now it's done we are enjoying reading what our guests have had to say about us.

The eco-friendly toiletries are by Faith in Nature and we have started using them in our own bathroom too as we love them so much! We're glad these and the other things in your room helped you to have a relaxing stay.

We travelled Scotland for about 12 days and for the end we stayed at Sheperd's house at Loch Lomond. It was a great end to a wonderful trip! The B&B was very clean and the welcome was so friendly! Chris and Jenny really have a wonderful home and the sleeping room is very welcoming as is the bathroom. It was nice that we could use the dining room in the evening to play or just sit and talk and we also liked that we had our own entrance. It just felt like beeing in a self-catering cottage instead of a B&B.
The breakfast, made by Jenny, was gorgeous! It was soooo lovely - the self made toast and the self made hot parts, just awesome!
If we will be going to Scotland again, we really would like to stay again at Loch Lomond and do this at Sheperd's house, if possible!
Thanks again to those two!

Thank you for choosing to stay with us and for giving us such a great review. We've had a busy first full season as B&B hosts and now we finally have time to reflect on the year just passed it has been very encouraging to receive so many positive comments from our guests.

Giving people space to relax is important to us so we're glad you enjoyed being able to have the dining room to yourselves. Chris wanted to add that he is the chef though! Jenny, on the other hand, is responsible for the bedroom you found so welcoming. We are both very glad you enjoyed what we do as much as we enjoyed doing it.
