“Absolutely superb”
Reviewed June 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed at Carman Hill with friends for twelve days and could not have made a better choice. The accomodation was very clean and spacious and everything we could ever need was available. Susan and John were excellent hosts and we will be sure to return again.

“An absolutely wonderful stay in beautiful accommodation.”
Reviewed June 4, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We recently spent 4 lovely nights at Carman Hill House on a trip to a badminton tournament in Glasgow choosing to stay outside the city rather than in a hotel .... what a good choice that was.

The cottage which is independent but attached to the owners house is in a lovely setting on a hill with views looking down on a lovely picture scene (but it's real !!). The cottage itself is furnished to a very high standard throughout with all the features you could really want e.g. sky tv, board games for the family and free wifi. The starter pack was delightful and as well as the basics included some local jam, duck eggs as well as hen eggs, shortbread and a bottle of wine .... that my wife really enjoyed !! It was an easy 30 minute drive in to Glasgow and about 5 to 10 minutes away from Loch Lomond.

Just before we leaving we had a lovely chat with Susan & John who were ever so warm and introduced us to their hens & ducks that roam around the gardens. We hope to be able to go back again in the future.

“Fantastic, homely, spacious holiday accomodation”
Reviewed June 3, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

Our second visit. Perfect for our needs. Accommodated us and our 3 young children well. Very comfortable accomodation, location very handy for lots of local amenities and main tourist routes but also quiet with fab views. We'll definitely come for a third time in the future.

“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.
