It is situated on the spacious and pretty premises of the owners. The Landlady Iona is the best host we ever came across - very helpful and just a nice woman! We highly recommend it also because of the area that gives you many ideas where to go. Stirling, Loch Lomand, Fort William, Oban etc.... Thank you, we had a very good time, including the weather.

Plenty of lounging space and dining kitchen would easily accommodate 6. Stairs not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Outside parking easy and only 5 minutes walk into centre.

The booking manager, Judith was so helpful and gracious. The entire reservation process was so professional and pleasant! The cottage is BEAUTIFUL - sitting well back from the road, it is part of a larger complex including the private Loch Dhu House. You'd be hard pressed to find better views over a morning coffee anywhere. Very well equipped - electric tea kettle, coffee maker, dishware and most importantly some leftover "stock" as in salt/pepper, spices - a real plus when you are trying to cook without buying to supply an entire pantry. The beds were really comfortable, the living room was cozy - perfect for watching the BCC (Cottage comes with a basic satellite package) The on-site manager, Gareth was pleasant and very prompt when we had a glitch with the TV and took care of it quickly. The week we stayed just flew by and we loved every minute of it. The cottage is only a few miles outside of Aberfoyle, which is a truly charming town in the Trossachs with a lot to offer anyone who wanted to experience the region and all things Scottish! However, be prepared to drive some very narrow and not in great shape roads to get there, and understand that what looks like a 5 minute drive doesn't equate in reality. You cannot speed when you are on a road that is at best a lane and 1/2 and around blind turns, hills and between lochs and rocks! There are a few things that I'll make note of: The turn back to the cottage is not well marked at all. I honestly thought it was a logging road when we first went back. There was also a lot of clear cut lumber area which we hadn't known about - but overall didn't cause problems. There is NO cell phone service that we could get - even climbing up the path to the back road and up to the top of the hill. So we communicated in town. The cottage information should also be updated a bit - the "DVD/Video rental" mentioned has not existed for many years, according to the townspeople we asked. But with the TV package - no real issue. Finally - having a small box of laundry soap on site for guests would be a great addition. We had dishwasher tabs, but ended up buying a regular container of laundry tabs, the balance of which we left for the next guest. Hope they enjoyed their stay as much as us! Don't miss: Wee Blevin Tea shop, Forth Inn, Wool Center, Doune Hill walk.
