“Welcoming & Comfortable”
Reviewed 13 September 2011

This was the first B & B we stayed at during our 2 week holiday tour of the West of Scotland. Lucy & Sid's warm and gentle welcome set the tone for the whole of our stay. And so we expected similar standards for all of our other stays but nothing has matched their hospitality and genuine care for the comfort of their guests. Comfortable beds, tasteful and contemporary decor without the feel of a typical B & B. Food was amazing, all locally sourced/homemade - you can taste the quality, and Sid's a brilliant chef. Lucy attends to all their guests requirements. It is quite clear that they both want their guests to feel relaxed and comfortable; nothing is too much trouble. We'll definitely stay at Roslin Cottage when we're back in that area.

Lucy and Sid the owners treated us to the best of Scottish hospitality. This was our first trip to Scotland and what a curtain raiser! Breakfasts were superb. Lucy took quiet and careful note of what were the obvious favourite pieces of each guest, and individually and subtly increased the portions of these every day. Sid is a superb chef and they make a winning team.
Although facing the main road into Callendar, the fully double glazed windows kept noise to low unobtrusive levels. The room was spotless and well equipped.

Room Tip: Only three rooms here, so book early and ask for the Kirtle Room

Needed to find somewhere near Callender and chose Roslin Cottage because of the price and good reviews. Stayed in the Cherry View room which is very small but very compact with everything you need. Only suitable for short stays because of minimal drawer and hanging space. We stayed two nights which was fine. The view of the garden and birds in the cherry tree made up for the lack of space. It was a pleasure to open the blind in the morning. Didn't need to close it really because it wasn't overlooked.
Syd made us really welcome and showed us round on arrival, including the garden. You must take the time to look round his garden, it is huge and has every kind of vegetable you could think of.
Every review mentioned the fantastic breakfasts and we weren't disappointed. Really set us up for the days walking ahead. Beautiful scenery and plenty of walks in the area. We hope to return very soon.

Hospitality was first rate, rooms were clean & comfortable. Breakfast was great, kept us going the rest of the day.
Lucy & Sid were very committed & couldn't do enough for their guests. The day that we were leaving Sid was chasing some guests all over Callander that had just checked out but had left a jacket behind in their room - no hotels are this committed !!

Our room was tiny, but we just managed to squeeze all four of us in, thanks to the "nestbed", which our children fought over, because it looked so cozy!

But, once again, there was a lovely guest lounge, that was so welcoming and spacious so we hardly were in our room, except for sleeping.

There was a lovely cup of tea for us - and hot chocolate for the children - on our arrival, and delicious shortbread! Also wireless throughout the house, so all our dreams come true!

Breakfast was a wonderful experience as all the guests sat at one table and were chatting and eating, and, of course, the food was absolutely delicious!

We would love to come again!
