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.

Our drive through the council estate wasn’t what we expected, but we were pleasantly surprised when we turned up the private lane and reached the farm. Sheila welcomed us and showed us into a very nicely presented room on the ground floor with views over the fields and sheep. There was a large bathroom, and tea and coffee making, plus fresh milk to make a decent drink. We found the bed a little firm, but slept quite well as it was very quiet. Breakfast was taken in the lovely breakfast room. As well as a fried breakfast, there was as much toast as you wanted, cereal, fruit and yoghurts. Unfortunately there was no WiFi so people should be aware of this.
