“Decent B & B with lovely cat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2010

We were quite happy here and managed to find some very nice places to eat out in the evening but they were all a car-drive away so one of us had to stay sober. It was good to eat breakfast round a communal breakfast table and I would have liked the salmon but it needed ordering the night before. We were slightly surprised to find our bed had not been made for the second night nor were there any clean cups but this was a minor setback. The biggest problem was the en suite door which was supposed to slide along on castors but the bottom of it was broken and it made it incredibly noisy going to the bathroom in the night.

Friendly welcome; clean rooms; large comfortable guest lounge. Remote but not isolated within easy reach of good restaurants, Loch Lomond and main roads.
An excellent B&B that offers a good breakfast and packed lunch for the next day.
Very peaceful and relaxing; wish we had more time to stay longer; certainly will next time.
