“Excellent first night on the West Highland Way”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

We arrived after walking 12 miles from Milngavie on the first stage of the West Highland Way. We had a warm welcome and were recommended several local pubs for dinner, one of which we tried and was very good. The room was very comfortable and well decorated, and the main bathroom was huge, and while we didn't use the bathtub it looked excellent. We spent some time in the lounge with the very friendly house cat Thackary. Unfortunately the heating didn't work during our stay, but Yvonne was kind enough to provide us with a space heater which kept us warm. We enjoyed our tasty breakfast with the other guest, and also had a packed lunch made by Yvonne which set us up for another day of walking! We will definitely visit again.

Dear Chris Thanks for the great review and so please that you were able to see beyond the broken down boiler, which was repaired on the Monday and was back up and running by lunch time. These things always happen at the weekend!! We would be delighted to receive you again within the WARM surroundings of Mulberry Lodge, don't leave it too long. Take care Yvonne.

A great stay. Yvonne was more than helpful and a great host. The room and whole house in fact was immaculately clean, so so clean I spilt some water on the floor by accident and wiped it up with some white tissue and nothing, not a speck of dirt on it!

The bathroom is one of the nicest and most luxurious I've been in, the room whilst fair enough on the smallish side was comfortable and had everything you needed, tea coffee wardrobe, hooks and hangers and a bin and WIFI! Just tick boxes all around. Breakfast was fresh and delicious, not too much, not too little, the sitting room always with a fire on in the evening and comfy bit leather sofas.

Location is a 13 minute walk to Drymen village centre, very quiet, great country views, peaceful and an old Victorian style home with living room and dining room, quirky trinkets and antique furniture around in a homely but unimposing way. In the village there are a few pubs, I went two days on the trot to the Clachan Inn, the Oak tree inn further out from the village (a drive away) also was great.

Basically, if you're in the area for walks or just a chill weekend or whatever don't even think twice, stop comparing review on tripadvisor and just BOOK MULBERRY LODGE!!

While walking the West Highland Way with a friend of mine we came by this place. It's on the Way itself and just outside the village of Drymen itself. We got a great bunkbed. The bathroom is the most impressive one I have seen throughout several travels in Schotland. Other than that there was a lovely breakfast, great service and an overall great, friendly and personal treatment.

Staying at the Mulberry Lodge means experiencing a wonderful ambiance surrounded by beautiful landscapes. It's about a ten minutes walk from Drymen. Cosy rooms make your holiday great even at rainy days. The hosts Yvonne and David were so nice to us and they were always open to any questions for information or just for a little chat, but you alway have enough privacy. Fresh flowers and a delicious breakfast for all sort of tastes were making us really happy every day!
