This really is a wonderful b&b right on the shores of Loch Lomond. Quaint yet spacious, beautiful rooms and a stunning view of the lake.

It is difficult to add much to the superlatives already used to describe this establishment. It is truly first class. Donnie and Coleen went out of their way to make me feel welcome and at home. The accommodation, surroundings and the breakfast were truly excellent. There is also a wonderful restaurant and - if you prefer - a 5 star...

Fabulous B&B right on the loch. It is close to the main road but you don't hear any road noise in the house. We had the Cottage Suite, which i'd recommend as it comes with a little lounge area with great views of the loch. The walls to the owners rooms are a little thin but we only heard the...
