We were made to feel very welcome by Heather and her family. Having read the excellent reviews we were slightly disappointed with Stoury Bothy.

We've stayed only three days but everything was perfect: a warm welcome, a very nice family, nice surroundings, easy access to Glasgow, Stirling, Loch Lomond..... the house was very clean and cosy and there was a large basket full of goodies(good quality) on the table! perfect booking!

About the neighbourhood
Kelvin Valley is a beautiful small valley which has the Kilsyth Hills leaning on to the Forth and Clyde Canal. Nearby is the Carron Valley and the Campsie Hills. Beautiful and atmospheric. Local towns Kilsyth and Kirkitilloch offer lazy days shopping coupled with some fine pubs, cafes and restaurants. Banton is a sleepy village which has peaceful and rugged aspects and offers a traditional friendly pub and bowling club for good old fashioned pub life. There are many walks around the village of Banton if you wish to wile away the hours not too far from your holiday home.
