Fabulous opportunites for walking and local history.
Mhor is worth visiting in all its local forms.
The house was very comfortable and a lovely quiet hideaway from the stresses of everyday life.

Many thanks for your positive comments. Glenvarloch is a great place to come back to, especially if the weather is a bit damp, fab showers and cosy underfloor heating. Best wishes, Glenise & John

So glad you enjoyed your 3rd stay at Glenvarloch ! With such a variety of places and activities to see and do on holiday, including walking, cycling from the doorstep, a variety of excellent local Golf courses, fishing, and access to the hinterland of Scotland within an easy drive of the house, it is a pleasure when visitors confirm this by booking again. We would be glad to have you back ! Best wishes, Glenise & John

We enjoyed a two week stay at Glenvarloch for the Commonwealth Games. The house is very comfortable and we could not fault it. We did a Sainsbury order which arrived on Sunday as planned - an excellent idea from the owners. The people in the village were lovely and friendly. The garden is large and was secure enough to allow our greyhound a safe run around. We climbed the hill - well worth the effort and walked extensively in the surrounding area. We definitely will be back.

“Happy Birthday to me!”

This holiday was booked to celebrate a 'landmark' birthday for me & my family and what a week we had! The house is beautiful and comes complete with every necessity that you would need to get jobs done. The location is very pretty with there being lots to do nearby. If you are also willing to travel further afield it is also in a prime position to reach both the East coast & the West! Highly recommended to friends already.

Lovely stay at Glenvarloch with family and friends on weekend of 2 May to 5 May. Loads to do in surrounds but we went for lazy option of relaxing, walking in surrounds and going to the pub directly across the road. House is comfortable and has everything you would need.
