What a view!!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week with our two children in this beautifully furnished, well-equipped house with the most spectacular view imaginable to wake up to every morning. Arrochar is really well-situated for visiting the region. The local pub is great. Kay and Jim were extremely welcoming. Can't fault it. A fantastic holiday let.

A beautiful cottage with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week whilst attending a wedding. Before we arrived we asked Kay lots of questions some unrelated to the cottage and she always replied immediately with lots of suggestions. Nothing was too much trouble. The cottage was gorgeous. Beautifully furnished with really comfy beds and lovely crisp linen. The kitchen is really well equipped as we - a family of 5 - ate in quite a bit. The weather was amazing, so we made no use of the heating but lots of use of the outside area where we ate breakfast, lunch and tea looking out over Loch Long. The wedding was fantastic made all the better by staying in such a lovely place. We’d highly recommend it to anyone who wants a home away from home in amazing surroundings!

Our stay in Arrochar

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to be met by the owners Jim & Kay who immediately made us feel right at home. The cottage was spotless with amazing views of the loch and surrounding mountains. It is equipped with everything we could possibly need for our stay including a multi-fuel stove in the living room which was a great way to finish the day. The property looks exactly as pictured online and we would highly recommend to anyone visiting the area. Fantastic place to stay.

Excellent property with all the facilities you would need for a relaxing break.

  • 5 of 5

It was a pleasure to be met by the owners. The property was very well appointed, clean and had a view of the Loch from the lounge and the main bedroom that was very special. There was a pub within 5 minurptes walk of the property and a very

useful convenience shop, within 10/15 minutes walk away. Easy walks and challenging hikes could be found not too far away as well as visiting towns such as Oban. Stirling and Glasgow.
