“Lovely Cottage, great location”

A taste of the highlands within a stones throw of Glasgow. Great roads and tracks for driving, cycling or walking. We drove miles on single track coastal routes without passing a car for miles, just fields full of farm animals and beautiful scenary. There's a lovely hour long drive down to a secluded sandy beach (Kilbride Bay). We wanted to cycle with young children and there were plenty of options, take a trip to Dunoon tourist information and they will give you all the info. Inverary and Dunoon are only 20 miles from the cottage, the George in Inverary served up a great meal with fresh local shellfish, Inver Cottage in Strachur came highly recommended but was unfortunately closed during our stay. The closest place to the cottage is The Creggans Inn but we thought the food was average at best, although the local ale wasn't bad. Springburn Cottage itself is charming, cosy, clean, and furnished throughout with quality goods. It's well stocked with everything you need from a functional point of view, as well as cupboards full of games, maps, toys for kids, books and videos. If you're looking for a base with a real country feel then you can't go wrong with Springburn, I wouldn't hesitate going back. And I must mention the Cottage Owner who was extremely helpful and did everything to make our stay enjoyable.

“Cosy, Comfortable, Quiet and Peaceful”
Reviewed August 19, 2013 for a stay in August 2013

Just back from a short break at Springburn Cottage, it is a lovely little cottage on the edge of Loch Fyne, handy for several great places to eat out, cosy and warm and really pretty. Steep stairs so not suitable for everyone, but everything you need, really well equipped and lovely attention to detail with wine, flowers, fruit and chocolates welcoming us on arrival. Would love to return and stay longer.

“A tranquil base with a cosy cottage feel”
Reviewed June 3, 2013 for a stay in May 2013

This rental is everything you would expect from a country cottage. Set in stunning location overlooking Loch Fyne it is the perfect place for a weekend or short break. There is a small picnic area across the road from the house where we sat and admired the view over the loch to the hills while the kids played on the shore.

It's peaceful and feels remote but is only a scenic 20 minute drive Dunoon as well as being well set up for touring. We had a great lunch at the Colintraive hotel. The cottage would be a great base for a walking or cycling holiday as it has everything you need for a comfortable evening after a day in the unpredictable Scottish weather. (Even electric blankets!).

“Little gem”

We stayed here late 2012 for a long weekend and it was wonderful. The area is stunning and we all agreed we would be back in the summer to see it then too. The cottage is perfect for 4 and spotless with everything you could need - the owner had even left us fresh flowers, wine, chocolates and lots of wood for the fire. She was really helpful and made us feel very welcome. We walked by day (despite the awful weather) safe in the knowledge we knew we could come back to a deep clawfoot bath and a roaring fire (and play far too much Cluedo! - great games cupboard). Many thanks, we'll be back!
