Spent a lovely week at the Glengyle MacGregor at the end of July. The cottage is delightful and extremely well equipped and comfortable. The owners have thought of everything including full canisters of tea and coffee, washing tablets and a choice of dvds. It's this attention to detail which made it exceed expectations and would definitely recommend. The area is fairly remote and you do need to plan ahead but its all part of the experience. The loch and surrounding area is breathtaking and provided a peaceful break from our busy lives. It proved an ideal base for us to explore the West of Scotland and beyond and it was always a welcoming sight to return to after long walks. Would definitely return.
This is the place to come if you want a break from the rest of the world. The cottage is immaculately kept, clean and well thought out from a space point of view. Bedrooms are appointed well, with deep carpets and black out curtains allowing you a brilliant night's sleep. We arrived to beautiful home baked cake and wine awaiting us. There are lots of bike rides and walks you can do from the house and the scenery is amazing. There is a barbecue and a chiminea should the weather be great, and a cosy woodburner even if it isn't. Being Scotland we used both within the same week! The fridge and freezer storage could have been a bit better given the 45 minute drive to the shops. I should point out if you don't like isolation this isn't for you, some people have been a bit negative in terms of how far the cottage is from anywhere but surely this is part of the attraction. The access road is interesting in terms of narrowness and passing places and there is no mobile reception in the cottage. I say this so that people have a realistic idea of what it will be like! It is amazing to think this is central Scotland as it is so remote. But to be in such a glorious part of the world and sharing it with so few people more than makes up any minor inconveniences. For tranquillity this is the best. City slickers probably not!
Glengyle MacGregor cottage is beautifully laid out, immaculate and decorated very tastefully. It is a delight to stay in, so much so that you won't want to leave. There are lovely walks all around and a walk in to Stronachlachar to the Pier Café is a must. The food is very good and you will be assured of a warm welcome and your dog too. We thoroughly recommend this cottage to visitors.
This cottage is truely a gem. If you want to get away from it all, read and put your feet up and have the occasional stroll round the lock this is the place to do it! A real de-stresser and fabulous drive to it.
The cottage is in quite an isolated location on the far side of Loch Katrine - we loved this element. It was dramatically beautiful. The cottage itself has been renovated and decorated to a high standard, great if like us (we were there in January!) you intend spending a bit of time indoors. We took all our food for the weekend, which we had intended and which we were advised to do in the pre-information.
The 'Say it in one sentence' above, really does say it all. Looking forward so much to our 3rd stay at The Glengyle MacGregor over Easter 2018 - definitely one to rebook the moment you've got home from your visit! Set back from the very quiet road on a huge private estate in the most tranquil and stunning of lochs, is a cottage fit for a Queen. Luxurious, spotless, beautifully furnished and very well equipped, including a good sized wood burning stove in the cathedral-like, open plan, split-level kitchen and lounge/diner, and the biggest family bathroom we've ever seen. Very comfortable beds, blackout curtains and walls a couple of feet thick, would leave even Premier Inn struggling to compete with this property on the promise of a great night's sleep! A wonderful kitchen, enclosed garden, abundant wildlife and night skies so heavy with stars you hardly need a telescope; a few days here will refresh and revive even the most jaded traveller.
