“Very comfortable and relaxing”
Reviewed September 28, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The location was great;very close to Loch and yet very quiet. with a very nice view.
Every thing available in the cottage and with the complimentary stuff you can survive both days if you don't want to leave the cottage. You can also have a BBQ if you want to, as we did!

Very friendly and nice people.

My friend in the other bedroom complained a bit about poor wireless but we were OK in our room and the living room..it could be something temporary.

I would go back straight away if I wanted to go around Loch Lomond.

We stayed at Carmen Hill House to incorporate our visit to the Commonwealth Games in July, which was near enough to be able to commute to Glasgow and only a few minutes by car from Loch Lomond. The house is stunning, very private with fantastic views and furnished to a very high spec especially the kitchen with many little extras The welcome pack is very useful and the supply of fresh eggs is a real bonus, we were even given some to take home. Although this a very new venture for Susan and John they are doing a fantastic job nothing is to much trouble for them, they are very friendly and helpful.

“Perfect place to stay”
Reviewed June 21, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

person found this review helpful

Located a few minutes from Loch Lomond this is a really peaceful place to stay. Not overlooked at all and wonderful views across to the mountains.

The accommodation is spacious, beautifully clean and well presented and is perfect for 4 people plus two more on a sofa bed in the lounge. A modern and well thought out kitchen if you like to cook, (we ate out most days), good size fridge/freezer & d/washer. Comfortable lounge, TV, WiFi, central heating throughout. Hairdryer, toiletries, towels etc., welcome pack of goodies on arrival.

Susan and John the owners will supply you with eggs from their own free range hens and ducks if you need extra. If you enjoy fishing then John is the person to speak to.

There is much to see and do in the surrounding area which is just stunning but if you fancy a day trip to Glasgow it's only a 40 min train ride from the local station which is about 3 mins away by car. Much better than driving in and paying parking fees.

Highly recommend Carman Hill House at any time of the year.

“Excellent place to stay”
Reviewed June 20, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Our first visit to Scotland & we are so pleased we booked Carman Hill House, every thing was perfect from the minute we arrived until we left. The owners Sue & John were very helpful with their knowledge of places to visit & activities. We were made VERY welcome & we have plans to return in the near future. A nice touch was the welcome pack on our arrival.
