The house was just wow and was in a stunning location with amazing view overlooking Firth of Clyde and we were able to watch the ships/ferries sail back and forth-just magical. We even had lovely young deer in the garden first thing in morning which was delight to see. My friends thought the house was amazing and equipped to very high standard. The amount of glasses, tableware etc on offer was just fabulous. We spent most of first night in the kitchen which happily was roomy enough for all of us to enjoy some singing etc. The sitting room was just marvelous and fantastic wood burning stove. Saturday we used the formal dining room and dressed up for dinner which was just marvelous. The caretaker was readily available for any requests/problems which arose during our weekend but was not interfering in any way. Would love to use the house again for celebrations in future and really would recommend Balvonie House to give your celebrations that extra WOW factor.

Eight of us, all ladies, returned to Westview for our second visit this year. The house is large, bright very well equipped and very welcoming. Rooms are a generous size and beds very comfortable. Lovely little touches provided by June too. Fresh flowers in all rooms, milk in the fridge and nibbles. The day of our arrival was very cold and when we entered the sitting room we were met by a glowing fire. Just lovely. The house has a lovely garden to sit out and is so central for all amenities. A few minutes walk to the beach and a straight walk into town (about 15 minutes) where there a lovely little coffee shops. We all just loved our weekend and have booked again for next year. Can't wait! Thank you June. x.
