Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Lovely quaint cottage rooms. Spotlessly clean, well presented and a lovely comfy bed. Only criticism was the shower was very tiny, but bathroom was very clean. Lovely continental breakfast served in our room by a very pleasant welcoming host. Many thanks we hope to return. Beware....don't be put off by the journey through a council estate on the way....well worth it.

We stopped here for one night on the way up to the Highlands. Perfect place to stay if you wish to explore Loch Lomond, only a 15-20 min walk to restaurants/amenities. Very peaceful and quiet. Sheila is a wonderful host who we enjoyed chatting to. Breakfast was superb, warm croissants, toast and jam delivered in the morning. Couldn’t have asked for a better stay.

This is an excellent B & B for a stopover to/from the highlands. There's plenty to do in the area if you're inclined to stay around Loch Lomond. Comfortable bed, very quiet location. The owner was welcoming and helpful. The continental breakfast was generous for most needs. I was happy with the price paid, but contact the host direct for the best rate. We would definitely use this B & B again

Just the one night at the stables on our way north to the highlands. Lovely accommodation; room was huge-as was the bathroom- with a very comfy bed and yet another bedroom upstairs. Some kitchen facilities so we were able to enjoy a takeaway, but there are eating places & pubs close by if that’s your choice. The DIY breakfast provided was delicious & very enjoyable. Sheila, the host, was so helpful and together with the total peace and quiet-what’s not to like? Thoroughly recommended.

We stayed at the Granary at Dumbain Farm for my birthday. The owner Sheila couldn't do enough to make our stay a special one. The Granary is spacious with a well equipped kitchen. It's only a 15 minute stroll into town & the Tullie Arms is the best pub/restaurant in the area but if you want a meal in the restaurant you need to book in advance. We had 3 special nights at Dumbain Farm & would highly recommend & will definitely be back in future. Thank you Sheila for making our stay a special one.

Really nice stay here - it was a great base on our way back from Skye to NW England. Sheila was really friendly and we both loved the breakfast bits left for us in the kitchen! Very clean and warm, would definitely recommend.

After staying mostly in castle-hotels for our entire stay in Scotland, this was supposed to be our "budget night"... How surprised were we to get one of our best reception at this lovely farm! Our room was very homely and tastefully furnished, all of it sparkling clean. The bed was of a great quality. The owner was very kind to accommodate our late arrival and gave us a warm welcome and fresh milk, which won my heart immediately. Breakfast was just as hospitable and delicious. A huge thank you to Sheila, once again!

We liked the spacious and stylish rooms very much. Sheila Watson, the owner, is very hospitable and has a good sense of humour. Nice and quiet location. Town centre with some nice restaurants (we recommend Balloch House) and central station not so far away. You can go to the centre by car or by a 20 minutes walk. Central location at Loch Lomond and in The Trossachs. You can go to Lake Katrine, the Hill House, Stirling, Glasgow by train etc. Lots to do and see.

The accommodation was spotlessly clean and surprisingly spacious. We stayed in the Granary which has two beautiful double en-suite rooms with a good size kitchen and dining area. The rooms were tastefully decorated and felt bright and airy. It was well equipped with all the essential amenities, as well as excellent catering and attention to detail from Sheila. The location is beautiful, providing easy access to Loch Lomond and all its glory. It was only a short journey of around 30 minutes from Glasgow airport, and was a lovely welcoming retreat away from the busy city. Nice and quiet at night with the occasional awakening from the morning chorus provided by the cows in the surrounding fields and frequent visits from the friendly farm cat. A lovely place to stay, run by a lovely lady with extensive knowledge of the surrounding area and the Loch.
