Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Cosy cottage near Loch Lomond
Lovely cosy cottage tucked away down a quiet lane, with log burner, which was certainly a hit. Carolyn greeted us and checked all was ok the morning after we arrived. Close to Loch Lomond and Aberfoyle. We took our bikes to have a ride around the gravel trails

Best place along the West Highland Way - Just FANTASTIC!
This was our favourite stay along the West Highland Way. We stayed in the B&B part. I can not say enough positive things - Host was fantastic, friendly helpful and had lots of hints, tips information about the walk. The rooms were cosy, brownies on arrival! (Very much appreciated and so good!) Hot, clean, big, shower with high quality toiletries. Our host even lent her own foot massager to one of the group who had sore feet. We ordered pizza's for our evening meal, one of each flavour as we couldn't decide, all were lovely with very thin crisp bases. The following morning's breakfast was typically Scottish, hot and well made. We also ordered the packed lunch option to keep us going on the next stretch along the West Highland Way - A delicious ham salad wrap, fruit, drink, crisps and chocolate. This place is truly wonderful.

An absolute gem!
We've just spent a glorious week here, the cottage is beautiful and very well equipped. The welcome pack was really useful and the basket of goodies plus prosecco was a lovely touch. The bed was comfy which was lucky as we've never been so tired from all the fresh air and walking. It was lovely to not be able to hear traffic as it is really rural. The location is great, we visited lots of places in the area and didn't need to drive longer than half hour. Several places we could walk to. The village is quaint and has everything you need. Also Carolyn made us pizzas which were absolutely yum! Would highly recommend this cottage and we will definitely be going back! Thank you for a lovely stay!

Lovely cottage
A lovely little cottage on a working farm run by a lovely family. Communication was excellent in run up to us arriving, lovely welcome pack waiting with some bubbles. Nice and cosy with a log burner that is brilliant, very modern kitchen. Cottage is located in a remote area and around a mile or so away from drymen. Overall would definitely recommended it and we would use again.

Dog friendly cottage- quiet location
Cottage is in a good location for walking and visiting several loch's. West Highland way on the door step. Clean cottage with good facilities and had everything we needed for a very enjoyable stay. Host Carolyn is very friendly and knowledgeable about the local area. Enclosed private garden- great for the dog !

Perfect cottage - wished we had booked for longer!
The cottage was comfortable and cosy, and had everything we needed. It's well situated for exploring the surrounding area but we just snuggled down and had a lazy weekend. Caroline is a warm and welcoming host. We will definitely be back again soon!

Okay for a couple of days
Communication and instructions on getting there was great, and the log burner was set up ready for our arrival which was welcome on a cold wet day! The cottage soon warmed up and was generally comfortable. The bed was okay, not as firm as I would like and felt quite small (small double?), however the pillows were very lumpy (a bug-bear of mine) presumably from being washed often to keep them clean. The cottage had all we needed for a short stay and there was extra wood available for the log burner for an extra £10 / £5 for a bag of pellets. A good base for exploring Loch Lomond and the surrounding area. Not far from Glasgow for the airport. One thing to be aware of if travelling with little ones, the heating element in the bathroom is a pipe at low level and gets VERY hot. My husband burnt his lower back on it and we had to keep an eye on our little boy around it. The bottle of Prosecco in the fridge was a nice touch, although we left it for the next visitors as my husband doesn't drink. Milk would have been nice instead for a cup of tea on arrival.

Hi Alex, thank you so much for your feedback. I’ve changed the pillows on the bed now as you are right, they were a little lumpy! I’m so sorry for the problem with the bathroom heater. If you had let me know at the time I could have showed you how to switch it off. Best wishes, Carolyn

Worth it
Nice and cozy! We arrived on a very cold night, Carolyn already had the woodburner going and the cottage was nice and cozy. Drymen was lovely.
