We had a wonderful stay at the old school house. Our host was delightful and the breakfast delicious. We booked a double room and a single room and both were confortable and well-equipped. We wished we could have stayed longer!

We stayed here on a short break exploring Loch Lomond, and were not disappointed. The Old School House is comfortable and friendly. We enjoyed breakfast each morning with the other guests and Hilary was able to advise us on places to eat and visit.
