“A Wonderful Place to Escape To”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in April 2013

Three generations of our family came for our second Easter fortnight stay in the fabulous Arnbeg Cottage. We are seasoned in these types of holidays, both in the UK and France, and can safely say that this is one of the best cottages we have ever stayed in and the only one we have ever stayed in more than once. This isn't only because of the top quality fixtures and fittings, sheets, towels etc. in the cottage, but because of its wonderful location. There is so much to see and do in the area for all ages (we ranged from 16 to 86). Favourite excursions included a trip on the steam boat, Sir Walter Scott, on Loch Katrine surrounded by snow-capped mountains, Stirling Castle (much better than Edinburgh Castle in our opinion), a day trip by train to Glasgow and The Famous Grouse Tour at the Glenturret Distillery but we were also happy just to sit and gaze at the stunning views. And of course, you can always just go for a walk, straight out of the back door even!
Despite its chic, clean-cut and trendy décor, it is also an extremely comfortable cottage, and the second sitting area with TV etc. was a godsend with teenagers in our party. The "menagerie" kept us entertained for hours and it was a thrill for us townies to be invited in to see the minutes-old lambs. Michael and Ali were delightful, friendly hosts and made us feel truly at home from the moment we arrived. A real gem!

“Scottish delight!”
Reviewed 17 December 2015 for a stay in July 2015

My room had such a charming view of green hills and fluffy sheep, it looked like a postcard. If only for that, and I would still come back. But the cottage was also very clean, stylish and comfortable and the kitchen was well supplied. Staying there was the perfect way to reconnect with nature, taking long walks around the peaceful area and playing with the very funny array of animals on the farm. The owner is very warm and friendly - really made me feel like home. I can't wait to get back!

“Everything we could have wanted”
Reviewed 15 December 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This cottage was the perfect location for me and my family to spend a few nights, and we quickly realised we should have planned to stay longer.

The cottage feels like it is newly built and the quality of the facilities and fittings etc is absolutely excellent. The cottage has many bedrooms and bathrooms, 2 lounging areas and a fantastic kitchen which meant we cold easily prepare any meals we wanted and enjoy just lounging around. A big tv and selection of DVDs helped keep the kids occupied as well as a swing/slide set in the little garden outside.

The cottage was impeccably clean and there's a washing machine and dryer if you need to do your own laundry.We pretty much felt like we were at home with everything we needed.

Mike and Ali the owners at the main farmhouse were amazingly welcoming and them and their various farm animals were the highlight of the trip. Again the kids loved interacting with all the animals, sheep, goats, chickens and the wonderful labradors.

The location is also great for walking the beautiful countryside or visting the various sites nearby like Wallace monument, Striling Castle, and of course a distillery or 2(that was for me, not the kids!).

In summary, we highly recommend for families or a romantic couples getaway. Brilliant in every aspect.
