We really enjoyed our stay. The studio was bright, well-equipped and it had a separate sitting area with a lovely view. The hosts are very welcoming and they provided lots of information on where to visit and where to eat. The area is really picturesque. The Lochleven Seafood cafe is excellent.

The view on the loch is amazing even more when a rainbow appears due to the combination of sun and rain ! Neil and Martina are kind people and very available. It has been...

We booked Studio 1 which has the addition of a small sitting room. We were very impressed with the whole Studio - the space has been used well and the facilities (bed, kitchenette, shower room, even the small shelf with chairs which is probably normally an eating area but which we used for a couple of laptops) are top notch....

Thanks so much for your lovely feedback, we enjoy hearing from our visitors and are delighted you enjoyed Studio 1. As they are Studios they are compact, and most guests find the small breakfast bar/table more than adequate for meals and we're glad they accommodated your two laptops in comfort too. If space allowed we'd love to add a separate...
