    This is a wonderful example of CRM's work and well worth a visit. The new protective shield allows a better view of the architectural features and also gives a claer idea of the problems caused by the Scottish weather. Staff ar enthusiastic and vey helpful.

    Underrated place to visit. Some aspects of the show set against the submarine there or the surrounding walls was breathtaking. Well worth a visit by young and old.

    We had our first visit this weekend to Kilcreggan Antiques and what a beautiful shop! They expanded the shop a while ago, and the variety of items is expansive. There is so much to see and it’s a treasure trove to spend some time looking at everything they have on offer.

    The owners are so kind, warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble when I asked a million questions!

    If you love antiques this is definitely a must visit shop.

    Great products from great people who work very hard to ensure we get the best. I just love the eggs with the lovely colour and flavour of excellent quality.

    Lovely traditional pier servicing the village of Kilcreggan. We stopped here on the penultimate trip of the Waverley “down the water” at the end of September.
    Charming and picturesque stopping point.

    If you can avoid the potholes on the approach road and find somewhere to park then you will be rewarded with an unforgettable experience if visiting gardens is "your thing". As mentioned in other reviews is in need of some "TLC" and due to the terrain some of the designated paths are not for the feint hearted or those with reduced mobility. That said, what can be seen from the more accessible paths make the £5 entrance fee value for money. Unfortunately at the time of our visit most of the plants for sale were "past their best" so this is an area that could be improved upon.

    We went on a three hour trip to Holy Loch, which might not be the most exciting place to see, but the atmosphere on board totally made up for it. It was very familiar and we felt really comfortable. The time absolutely flew. Would definitley recommend when in Helensburgh!

    What a friendly and helpful place this is. I have a phobia of high ceilings and had been unable to stay in the room, the staff couldnt have been nicer offering me alternative seating and ensuring I was OK, I really appreciated this as I felt quite anxious. Wish more places were as friendly and caring. Oh and my kids loved the film (and the popcorn)!!!

    We set off from the beach and explored the small islands, taking in the beautiful scenery as we went.

    Keith is a really nice guy and very patient. He had loads of interesting facts that left us wanting to explore more of Scotland.
    The equipment was really good quality and Keith made sure we had all we needed before we set off.

    We made some amazing memories and I would love to do it again.

    Very friendly welcome and helpful in explaining the lay out of the course and guiding us to the first tee. The course is in good condition and the greens are stable and good. Some holes are a little difficult if you do not know the course as there is not always good visibility. Being behind an invitational 4ball competition we were a little fast so we invited a sinlge playing member behind us to join. That was a good decision. Not only was he a pleasant gentleman but he was also able to give us some advise as to how to play the holes. On return to the clubhouse we were again made very welcome.
