Beautifully converted from the original village primary school 17 years ago the house has recently undergone a further renovation to an exceptionally high standard providing wonderful, relaxing home from home holiday location.

On the edge of the village, a short walk to the square, the Old School is tranquil and relaxing yet close to the hub of the village. It is set in 2 acres of gardens and it enjoys uninterupted views of Conic Hill and the Luss Hills beyond.

"How to fall in love with Scotland"

My friends and I spent 2 nights in the School house and couldn't have had a nicer stay. The location is stunning, walking straight out the front door and up into the hills. Drymen is a delightful village with many pubs/bars to choose from and all within easy walking distance from the house. My favourite was The Clachan for a real authentic hostelry. The school house is equipped with everything you'd need and more from a home away from home. The beds were very comfortable and the plentiful bathrooms all beautifully finished. We were given such a warm greeting by our host Esther who went to so much trouble to ensure we had everything we needed. It was fabulous to come home after our walks to a log burner and curl up on the huge sofa. I only wish I could be there right now and will definately be going back.
