Guestbook comments from the manager

Enjoyed a lovely stay in Glenfruin Lodge !!

It had everything we needed and our little boy Rory enjoyed exploring all the rooms especially the big bath !



It was very handy for other places we spent time in Balloch, Luss and Helensburgh

The beach and ducks in Luss were a favourite

We hope to be back soon !!

Nice luxury accomodation

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely stay in this neat cottage. Plenty of room for two. Excellent bathroom en the bed was spacious. A small point of criticism is that the cottage is fairly close to a roundabout which gives some noise when outside. The scenery is beautiful, a lot to do for holiday lovers. We saw a number of bikers, next time I will bring my own. Biking is possible, walking is great.

Glenfruin Lodge Review

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was clean and included all the necessary items and appliances for an independent stay. It was well situated for our daily excursions. The surrounding area is quiet, and the scenery is beautiful. The owners were friendly and helpful.

Throughout our stay there were times when the electrical sockets and internet did not work. The owner addressed it and showed us how to reset the electrical panel.

Overall we enjoyed our stay, and would definitely reserve the cottage again in the future.

Thanks for a relaxing place to stay!

Luss Village (on Loch Lomond)
Car: recommended

Glenfruin Lodge is located at the head of Glen Fruin which offers bird watching, wildlife, cycling and walking on the doorstep. It is also right on the cycle path between Helensburgh and Loch Lomond.

You don't have to be a hill walker or cyclist to enjoy the outdoors - there are some fantastic scenic drives such as Dukes Pass between Aberfoyle and Callendar, and the drive to Glencoe (Skyfall country). You could also get a ferry to Dunoon, Argyll peninsular or the Island of Cowal. The location is so centric to so many places options are endless.

Places of interest include Luss Village on the banks of Loch Lomond, a conservation village which featured in 'Take the High Road' (for those who can remember!). Also Inverary is worth a visit and has a great scenic drive along the sea lochs to get there as well as Inverary Castle and grounds (only about 1 hour drive).

Glasgow is also only 45 mins away, a good way to travel is by train (every 30 mins) from either Balloch or Helensburgh. Or you could travel on the West Highland line to Oban, Fort William & Mallaig enabling everyone to sit back and enjoy the spectacular views.
