Reviewed 3 August 2014

We have just returned from an eight-night stay here during the Commonwealth Games and by the end it was beginning to feel like home. Paul and Mabel were very welcoming and friendly, giving us suggestions of where to go on our 'days off' and recommending places to eat.

Our bedroom was comfortable and the large guest lounge an added bonus. Paul even lit the open fire on one particularly chilly day when we were staying in to 'chill out' before we went to an evening session of the athletics.

Breakfasts were delicious and very well presented with individuals' requests willingly catered for.

I would happily return here to stay and indeed, I hope to do so.

We stayed here during the Commonwealth games. Paul and Mabel were great hosts and they really made us feel at home. The cooked breakfast was delicious and we would definitely go back again. Highly recommended

Lovely accommodation and very welcoming. Friendly owners who gave us ideas of activities to do within the area and even phoned up to book our boat trip for us. The breakfast was really tasty and presented nicely. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Highly recommend!

My girlfriend & I recently stayed at Ardoch Cottage. We were greeted by Paul and Mabel, who could not have been friendlier. Over the two nights we stayed there, we were provided with a beautiful Scottish breakfast, lots of local information (including about local walks and bus times) and a roaring fire upon our return from a day spent by the loch!

We spent 2 nights at this lovely B & B and had the place to ourselves:) This meant we had the sitting room with real fire which our Grandson Archie Loved. Paul and Mabel could not do enough for us and Archie loved them.
We took our little yorkie with us as well, the rooms are large and comfortable with nice little touches such as tissues and shower gel etc. The house is lovely and welcoming and the Scottish breakfast was excellent!! On arrival, Paul greeted us and we were very pleasantly surprised by the lovely contemporary interior and roaring fire. It's just lovely. In the morning lovely views across the hills and great walks with the dog. You can see the "Ben" as well weather permitting.

We would recommend Ardoch cottage unreservedly only down side was not enough nights:)

Thanks Paul & Mabel have a lovely holiday:)

Kevin, Gloria and Archie we will see you again

Paul and Mabel extended a warm Scottish welcome to us. Their cottage is warm, cosy and relaxed.

We were attending a BUGS dinner at the lovely Ross Priory and chose to stay at Ardoch as the nearest B&B because Ross Priory rooms were all booked.

On arrival, Paul greeted us and we were very pleasantly surprised by the lovely contemporary interior and roaring fire. It's just lovely.

Our room was good too. And in the morning lovely views across the hills.

Breakfast was first class with everything you could possibly want. And more

I recommend Ardoch Cottage unreservedly

My husband and I spent two nights at ARDOCH cottage while on a two-week trip to Scotland. It was one of the great highlights of our trip. The room was comfortable and clean, with the firm beds that we had specifically requested. Mabel's breakfasts were outstanding, made with fresh seasonal local produce. Paul and Mabel could not do enough for us, to the point of providing us with the keys to and a lift to a neighboring church we were interested in visiting. On their tip we also visited the oldest pub in Scotland and had a great atmospheric meal there. The Loch Lomond area is lovely, and even without a car we managed to see and experience a lot. A walk to Ross Priory from the cottage is a must!
