Although we can definitely see how this place gets high ratings, we did not like it as much as others did. I must admit we arrived here with high expectations after our outstanding stay at bramblewood b&b the night before. Still a well run b&b which we do recommend for one night, especially if walking the WHW. High points: -...

Thank you for your very detailed comments. In answer to your question, "A bit overrated?", Jenny and I are content to let our guests answer that for us; at time of writing, 45 out of our 50 guest reviews are 5 out of 5 and only three have rated us average since we opened in 2010.

I planned our west highland way trip around our stay here and i wasn't disappointed. The owner kindly picked us up after dinner from the rowardennan hotel and after a short drive we were settled in to the shepherds hut, the underfloor heating meant we were cosy all night. The bed was surprisingly big and very comfy and the beautifully...

Thank you for leaving us a review. The debate over Tunnocks caramel logs versus teacakes is age old and will doubtless go on for a long time to come! The only solution to a teacake that's liable to get squashed in your bag is to eat it there and then.

We spent 2 lovely and cosy nights in The Shepherd's Hut which provided a great base to explore Loch Lomond. Our fab hosts provided a breakfast that set us up nicely for a day in the hills. The Hut had everything we needed for a weekend getaway. We shall be recommending to friends!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We do appreciate it. When we fitted the hut out we spent a long time planning how to fit everything in and it's great to hear guests who stay in it, find that everything they need is there, even though it's a small space.

Sometimes when you look forward to something for a long time and put it on a pedestal, it can only be a disappointment. When it comes to the Shepherd's Hut, this is not the case. I spent a month anticipating our stay, and was still absolutely delighted with it. Comfy, cosy, and absolutely delightful. Chris and Jenny are the perfect...

Just spent 2 nights at Chris and Jenny's Shepherd's Hut, which I booked as a birthday gift for my husband. I expected, going by fellow reviewers' comments and photos, a rather different and unique B&B experience, and we were certainly not disappointed!!

The underfloor heating is one of the things we most love telling our guests about, when they arrive on a cold evening. There's nothing quite like climbing out of bed, or out of the shower, and feeling the lovely warm floor underfoot!

We were really grateful that the lovely hosts at The Shepherd's House opened a week early for us so we could stay in the Shepherds hut. It was a delightful place to stay and something different from the run of the mill. The hut makes the best use of all of the available space and it was interesting to explore...

It's always a pleasure to welcome people to the hut who "get it" - delivering breakfast to guests in PJs is always a good sign, it tells us you've relaxed and given in to the immense peace of the east Lochside. Thank you for your visit, we would be delighted to see you again.

Lovely B&B with a great breakfast which we just couldn't do justice to. If you are walking the West Highland Way make sure that you take advantage of the Rowerdennan collect and drop off offered - those last 3 miles seem a very long 3 miles and we wouldn't have wanted to add them to the 14 miles to Beinglas...

My wife and I stayed here during our WHW walk in August 2013. Very nice, clean and comfortable B&B. The house is about 2-3km south of Rowerdennan which I did not fully appreciate when booking. We were warmly welcomed on our arrival. We dropped off our hiking gear, showered and then walked the 2-3km to the Rowerdennan hotel for dinner....
