“Bliss”
Reviewed 8 November 2016 for a stay in October 2016

We stayed here for the last week of October as a family of three and two dogs.
We had never taken a holiday like this before... but I will again!
Loved! our teenage son said the cabin and the area have the 'WOW' factor.
The communication with Karen the owner prior to our visit was superb, the cabin is excellent full of everything you need plus extras.. dvds,walking route books, cycle books, places to visit..etc.
The log burner was brilliant! the views superb, even the night sky was mind blowing!
It was a real relaxing week, yet there is so much to see and do in the area! we went on the steamboat on Loch Katrine, shopped till we dropped in Stirling, walked up the hill of fairies...
The Inn & Bistro in the village was superb, welcomed the dogs as well as us!

“Feels like home, and manages to be out of the way yet near so much!”
Reviewed 5 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

The cabin is great, feels lived in and has everything you'd need. The location is a fine one, the river running close but shallow enough not to cause major child concerns. Easy access to attractions / activities to the South, and more wilderness further North. Some contemporary food and drink around including Morh.

“Brilliant stay, Thank You!”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Very well equipped accommodation, brilliant location and couldn't have been more helpful about our plans prior to visiting. One thing I would say is Midgies are RIFE this time of year, so take plenty of Avon's Skin so Soft the wife got bitten terribly, but it was worth it for the location. Will be back again soon. Thank You!

“Well-equiped cabin in beautiful area”
Reviewed 25 July 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Well equiped, beautiful surroundings. Perfect place to explore Schotland. Great service. Karen always immediately answered my e-mails. We really felt at home in this nice log cabin.
Hope to come back.
