Interaction with guests
Please note we no longer live next door to the cottage as we have moved down south to be nearer to our grandchildren down there. Neighbours are on call should any issues arise so we are positive this will not spoil your holiday in our lovely cottage.
There are plenty of leaflets in the cottage on "what to do" in the area. You can also get ideas from our own website (please google loch katrine holidays).

We arrived on the Saturday of Oct half term. Wow. ...a truly beautiful setting on the side of Loch Katrine. We loved the remoteness of the place, but felt safe knowing Jan and Gordon were just next door should you need anything!! The homemade bread is to die for and makes gorgeous toast for breakfast..we did have to ask for more as it was so delicious. The autumn colours were stunning...with no mobile signal or...

We had a great week on the banks of Loch Katrine.The snow made for some wonderful scenery, the location for great walks and the cottage for a fab cozy home to come back to! Sorry to have to leave!!

Management response:

So pleased you enjoyed your short stay with us. The snow does make the area look like a magical winterland - it's beautiful here at any time of year but in the snow it IS breathtaking! Hope you come and visit us some other time....thanks for the review!
