I stayed here for one night in Nov 2018. From the time I arrived to the time I left, Frances was unfailingly hospitable. It felt like I was staying with a friend. The rooms were clean and well-stocked: it's clear that Frances takes hospitality very seriously. Breakfast in the

Looking back at the reviews - (I’ve time as it’s very quiet on the West Highland Way in February!) I noticed I hadn’t replied to this amazing review - Thanks so much, it does make everything worthwhile. I have to add that all our guests have been fantastic, some even helping - stripping beds, clearing dishes, but the best ones eat all the food so no waste and no left over pastries for me to eat! Roll on 2019!

I did respond to this review so not sure why it hasn’t appeared. I will respond again although briefer! Firstly thanks for taking time to write, and secondly thanks for highlighting the good points too. I have taken on board your comments and although the mattresses are only 2 seasons old and should have a bit more life in them I will replace them ready for the next season. The light is a bit more awkward and as such I will need advice as to what to do about it. Quite often we have guests seemingly used to hostel environment bringing eye masks, I don’t think I could sleep with one but it’s a thought to maybe supply some.

We just had a really good stay here. It's nice and quirky staying in a converted church. Frances our hostess was great. Breakfast was good as well. Couldn't recommend Kip in the Kirk highly enough. Village of Drymen was nice for the pub as well.

Stayed in the bunkhouse here on my first day of the West Highland Way. I was welcomed in although I arrived early. In the afternoon tea and scones are provided for all guests which was great to get know your fellow travellers. The bunkhouse was very spacious, with added extras

Thanks for taking time to review, great comments! We usually find out quite a lot about our guests, where they are from, why the WHW etc etc I just noticed your kayak pic would loved to have talked to you about kayaking! A missed opportunity! Maybe another time!

"Ask for the ensuite--you have your own bathroom and you're towards the back of the house, which is quieter."
