“Peaceful,relaxing, warm, comfortable and a luxurious standard to relax in.”
Reviewed 14 March 2014 for a stay in November 2013

A lovely weekend spent looking at beautiful views. The cottage was warm, comfortable, modern and of a very high standard. The owner was very keen to help and offer local knowledge advice to maximize our enjoyment. The warm fire and peaceful environment gave us a relaxing stay.

“Beautiful cottage in gorgeous setting”
Reviewed 26 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

We have had a brilliant few days in the Old Dairy - such a warm and welcoming eco cottage with all mod cons and the most fantastic log burner. Deborah is so friendly and provided a welcome basket of goodies on arrival - lovely home made bread - just needed some jam to go with it! Thoroughly recommend this place to anyone - easy reach to Glasgow too. Loved the soap too- must get some when we move up! Thank you for making our trip a lovely break away.

Thank you for your lovely comments, we're glad your family had such a lovely stay here. We buy the lovely hand soap from Lomond Soap not only for its superb quality and scent but also the fact that it is palm oil free and hand made by a local business. Thanks for your compliments on the home made bread and I'm going to make sure that this year I make even more jam from our garden produce so there is enough for everyone to enjoy!
Best wishes, Deborah

“Comfortable, clean and cosy!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

We took our six month old baby for his first getaway here, was perfect. The attention to detail in the cottage meant we didn't want for anything and everything was immaculate. The area was beautiful, the view from the top of 'The Dumpling' was spectacular!! Loved being there, especially seeing the Loch washed in gorgeous autumn colours. Returning to the cottage and getting the wood burner roaring and settling down for a cosy night was the perfect end to the day. Couldn't rate this place more highly, we are really looking forward to another visit!

Comfortable accommodation, well equipped and warm. Friendly welcome from the owners after our late arrival. Goodies appreciated too. Beautiful views from upstairs bedroom. Trip up the Dumpling recommended.

We always recommend a trip up the small hill at the end of our driveway - known locally as The Dumpling - the views are terrific and its such a popular walk so we're glad you enjoyed it.
