Can only echo previous comments: a warm welcome from Hilary and more importantly from Hamish the cat. Quiet countryside retreat and Hilary was helpful with information on local places to eat. Went to "Clachan Inn" at Drymen, and the pub and setting was rather like the Sam Peckinpah film "Straw Dogs." Had Hilary not recommended may have been reluctant to step inside - however the food was excellent quality at reasonable prices and the locals were friendly.
Although I travel a lot in the UK do not usually sleep well when away, but went out like a light.
Excellent breakfast and Hilary seems to have a genuine interest in her guests.
