This was a fantastic holiday cottage for us. Everything is of a very high standard and extremely comfortable. The children loved the chickens and ducks and enjoyed the freedom of running in the garden. The owners couldn't be more helpful.

“Stunning, Comfortable, Relaxing .... Simply Perfect!”
Reviewed 2 October 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Carman Hill House is a stunning property completed to a high standard, with every home comfort. It is ideally situated for both the wonderful and dynamic city of Glasgow and/or the amazingly beautiful country side of Loch Lomond and Argyllshire. The views from the property take in Ben Lomond and beyond (we were blessed with breath taking sunrises and sunsets during our stay).
Susan and John are perfect hosts and will go out of their way to ensure your stay is stress free and enjoy, doing everything to make sure you are comfortable. Both are very knowledgable in regard to local information and places which maybe of interest....and their welcome pack is one of the best we ever experienced on hiring a holiday self catering cottage.

Simply put Carman Hill House is stunningly perfect..... We cannot recommend you make this your first choice when visiting the west coast of Scotland.

“Great place near Loch Lomond”
Reviewed 3 September 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Carman Hill House is a great for a short or long stay if you want a modern, clean and convenient self catering place near Loch Lomond and Glasgow whithout the hassle of the city and with great views.
The hosts John and Susan are of great help and are excellent hosts. The place is big enough for 6/7 people easily and it is very modern and comfortable. When we arrived the hosts welcomed us outside and we found a welcome food pack in the kitchen. Appliances and kitchen are brand new for those who would like to cook there.
The area behind the house was great for our 2 boys to play in and check out the chickens.
We highly recommend this vacation place....if we ever return to Scotland it will be the first place we will book. Great!!!

“A fantastic location to use as a base.”

The clean and comfortable accomodation was more than adequate for 6 people (4 adults and 2 children), with great views over the Leven valley and easy access to Loch Lomond, Glasgow and beyond, this is the perfect place to use as a base to explore west central Scotland.
Good sized bedrooms, a clean, modern kitchen and a comfortable living room are what you get here. Also, John and Susan made sure that we had anything we required during the two weeks we stayed at Carman Hill House.
We would happily recommend Carman Hill House to family and friends.

“Excellent Accommodation and Hospitality”

We visited Renton in mid-July for a visit. The cottage was lovely and very well presented. John/Susan went out of the way to make us feel at home. I had a young family as well, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Renton itself is well located to Loch Lomond as well as to tourist hotspots like Fort William/Ben Nevis.

I have no doubt recommending this cottage to anyone else visiting Scotland
