Great B&B. The B&B is well located in Alexandria, which is a good place to rest after arriving in Glasgow before heading north. The rooms are very nice and well presented. The breakfast was great, very tasty. The hosts were lovely and very informative. Would recommend.

Spent a lovely day/night at Ardoch Cottage. Wonderful location in walking distance to Loch Lomand, beautiful scenery! We had a very comfortable night before traveling north. Lovely hosts, very knowledgeable about the area, a great lounge with log fire (which can still be needed during a summer in Scotland!) and a very tasty breakfast! Thank you!

It was one station on our Scotland trip by motorbike. I can really recommend this B&B. The Room was comfortable and clean, the Bathroom not too small. The hosts were really friendly and helpful. The breakfast was also a highlight! I´ll keep this cottage in memory for my next Scotland visit.
