A guest review

We spent a weekend in November in this fantastic house in beautiful Lochgoilhead. The house was so cosy and comfortable and fully equipped with everything we needed. The views from the house are simply stunning – right across the loch to the mountains – so we could easily have spent all weekend sitting looking out the windows!

What the guests say

A great getaway. Booked the house for a wee reunion of a few old friends. The house was beautiful, with plenty of firewood and comfy beds. Was very sad to leave, but would definitely go back!
