Lovely weekend in such a cosy house. Great location for a family get-together. Dog freindly too. Would definitely recommend.

“Beautiful stay!”
Reviewed 20 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

We stayed here for three nights for a family get together before my husband and I were moving abroad.

Lois (the owner) was great, sent me lots of information by email and got back to me quickly.

Price was great, the place sleeps 10 so worked out affordable for everyone.

Location
It is set only about a fifteen minute drive from Balloch but up away in the countryside with no neighbours - lovely middle of nowhere feeling while still being close to a town! Huge grounds ideal for good weather and kids running about.

House
Beautiful, living room good size with enough seats to comfortable fit all 10 guests in. Fire was lovely (logs provided free). Very cosy for such a bug place. Rooms all charming and comfy. Bathrooms lovely and clean. Kitchen well equipped we cooked easily without needing to being any utensils.Lovely touches such as a welcome basked, high chair for my niece, lots of book cases so lots of reading material.

We had other family and friends popping over from Glasgow and Edinburgh during the day for lunch and it was easy to have them over as there was plenty of space and seating areas for everyone. And its such a good central location to be able to do that. One of my family members who popped over is in a wheelchair and she was able to be taken into the house, living room and kitchen easily. As there is downstairs bedrooms they may stay themselves another time as it has such good access for wheelchairs so that is worth knowing.

Cons
The only thing I would say is that it may be worth having some lighting or fencing near the burn as its a bit of a steep drop in the dark!

I would definitely recommend the place for anyone looking to have a family gathering! Thanks for such a lovely stay Lois!

“A fabulous home from home, exceptional.”
Reviewed 29 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

A great country home near the town of Balloch yet surrounded by beautiful views of the countryside. The house was very spacious and perfect for our party of 10 family members. The beds were very comfortable and all the rooms were perfect for our needs. Plenty of space to socialise as a group or have wee quiet spots to read or relax. The open plan kitchen and dining area was great for small breakfasts and family mealtimes. The large garden surrounding the house was great for barbeques, relaxing and outside games with the family. Everyone has a great time and we will definitely be back. Lois, the owner was very friendly and welcoming and couldn't be more helpful. Can't wait to go back.

“Excellent accommodation, fabulous setting. We want to go back again...”
Reviewed 22 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We enjoyed a week staying at Collalis in August. The house is amazing - very well equipped, lovely decor and stunning gardens and views. Collalis definitely has the feel of a home rather than a holiday cottage. There were 10 of us (including children and my elderly grandmother) and the cottage suited us perfectly. The owner (Lois) could not have been more accommodating. Lois even bought some drinking straws especially for the children which they loved. We cannot rate this property highly enough. Lots to do in the local area and around Loch Lomond. Lois was happy to recommend local restaurants and other amenities which really helped us make the most of our stay. We would love to return.
