My mum and I have stayed here now 3 times and cannot fault anything. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, Sheila made us feel so welcome and could not do enough for us. Thank you again for a peaceful couple of days and looking forward to our next visit already.

Some of our family stayed here this weekend for a family wedding in Luss. The accommodation was gorgeous, very comfortable, ticked all the boxes, central to Balloch but also had the feel of being in the countryside. Such a gorgeous place to stay and as for Shelia...what a gem! They say if you want the truth about something you should...

We stayed a few years ago and again last weekend; quality is still unsurpassed. Even better: right now there is a winter deal if you stay 2 nights: perfect for a relaxing Loch Lomond area break. The Stable is restful, roomy, comfortable and quiet with continental breakfast and tasty treats provided by friendly and efficient Sheila.

We found this B and B on our recent trip to Scotland. The place is a 5 minute drive from Balloch and has a relaxing and comfortable rural atmosphere. The room was spacious and Sheila and George went out of their way to make us welcome. The breakfast was sensational and rural aspect unbeatable. This place is a gem and...

Fantastic peaceful location, 15 mins walk out of town, (however the owner did offer to run us into town to the restaurant). Gorgeous room, lovely quality furniture and decor. Fantastic breakfast. It was the ideal start to our tour of Scotland, cannot recommend this place highly enough.

This was a great B&B stay. The room was spacious, the host gracious, and the location rural even though it was right on the edge of town. You get a real sense of the farm with the sheep and cows out the window. Sheila Watson has done up the rooms in a wonderful way and gives you the space and...

We stayed 2 nights over the August Bank Holiday weekend and absolutely loved it. We were there for the Great Scottish Swim and Sheila was so helpful with directions, suggestions, and even stored our wet wetsuits in the Dairy overnight to dry out! The location is a little bit out of town, walk-able but I'd recommend having a car, that...

We stayed for only one night, touring Scotland and attending the Loch Lomond Highland Games nearby, and were very lucky to have found this lovely B&B on a farm. The rooms are in a tastefully renovated and decorated old farm building, we had a spacious twin room with all the amenities, and really comfortable beds. Sheila is a very warm...

I stayed at the Farm for 3 nights with my family, it's situated in a beautiful part of the country. The rooms were tastefully decorated, clean and had all the essentials needed for a relaxing break. All rooms were ensuite with fabulous white fluffy towels. Sheila, the owner was a fantastic hostess. Her breakfast was amazing, nothing was too much...

Three friends and I shared two rooms at Dumbain Farm and we could not have been more pleased with our choice. The rooms were spacious and nicely designed and furnished; beds were super comfortable. Nearly all conveniences were provided, including tea/coffee-making facilities in the rooms--although neither shampoo/conditioner nor wifi were available, which was surprising. Breakfast was very filling and well-made...
