“Awesome ”
Reviewed 8 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

Stayed between Boxing Day and New Year and was very very impressed by this place.

Spotlessly clean and everything you could think of needing was provided.

We were also left some goodies when we arrived which was extremely thoughtful and very appreciated.

The location is great and within and hour you can get to some fab places, whether you like walking, climbing, shopping or pretty much anything else there is so much to do within the hours drive.

We will 100% go back there.

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 21 August 2017 for a stay in July 2017

We have just spent a week in Curlew Cottage.
This cottage is fabulous.
There is everything and more you could want. Deborah and Steve leave freshly baked bread and homemade marmalade as part of your welcome pack. Both are to die for.
I also loved the popcorn.
Coffee, tea milk and condiments also provided in the welcome pack.
Wifi provided.
Only 5 minutes by car to Balloch and Lomomd shores.
10 minutes to Dumbarton. Great location to tour the Highlands of Scotland.
Lots of nice eating places in and about Balloch.
The House of Darroch restaurant and shop are a five minute walk from Curlew Cottage.
The food is great and lots of unusual items to buy in the shop.
The farm is lovely and peaceful.
Great place to chill at night after being out and about.
My grand children also loved playing on the trampoline which is under cover in the barn.
.Curlew Cottage also has a fabulous wood burner if you stay there in the winter.

“Our fifth visit must speak for itself!”
Reviewed 7 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

Superbly situated with wonderful views, the accommodation is of very high standard and comfort. We have stayed - a group of 8/9 friends/ family - on five occasions and have wonderful memories of our times there. The owners are always willing to help,with any query but never an intrusive presence. On this last visit my husband was on crutches and using a wheelchair following an accident - the accommodation worked well for him so would be suitable for disabled people. Highly reccomended!

Thank you very much for coming to stay once more and I'm particularly glad that the cottage worked so well for your husband's changed mobility. We have had many wheelchair users staying here and are glad the accommodation has worked so well.
We hope to see you again in the future and very much appreciate your kind words.

Best regards
Deborah
