Due to the fact the village is at the end of the road, there is very little through traffic, couple this with good amenities at the local hotels leisure centre, the village is very popular with young families during the traditional holiday periods.

"great, yet could be a better with few extras"
Altogether, we were very pleased with the place. The house comfortably suited 4 adults and 5 children including 1 baby. the location is suitable for many different day trips and the price was reasona… More
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Your comments are helpful. I just want to point out that there is a self service laundry nearby on the Estate. None of the holiday properties on the Estate include washing machines so Hightrees is not the exception. I will gladly pass your comments on to the owners for their information. Thank you also for pointing out what good value Hightrees is for a larger family.

As the local letting agent for Hightrees I want to thank you for taking the time to contact me directly with your comments, and for now putting them on this review.
I had briefed the owners about your comments. They came up to their property to check in detail the points you raised. I have just been along to Hightrees to do my own check.
The deck area was not slippy today, but I agree that the shrubs should be trimmed. That will be done. The basement utility room is more than adequate for the job. having said that, there is also a self service laundry on the Estate so there is an alternative place to do any washing if required. Hightrees is advertised as sleeping 6+3. The description takes care to explain the extra sleeping arrangements. When the extra beds are in use these are put-u-up type beds and it is fair to say that they do not have full mattresses as on the beds - but that is usual for this type of bedding. The floor boards did creak - not sure what's going on there, I can assure you it was not like that the last time I was in the property. That will be investigated.

"Home away from home"
Myself and my husband spent a relaxing week here in November 2011. We could not have felt more at home, the property is immaculate and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The house itself was very spacious and extremely cosy which given the temperatures in Argyle during the winter period, was a must for me!!
The surrounding area is quiet and fantastic for long walks and plenty of fresh air.The local restaurant has a great menu although you really do need to book to guarantee a table. The local pub which is about a five minute walk from the house and although it is a bit dated internally, has a nice friendly atmosphere.
All in all I would highly recommend a trip to Hightrees for a relaxing and peaceful break.
We certainly came home rosey cheeked and fully refreshed.

"THE place to go for a relaxing break with family and friends"
The location of this holiday home could not be better - it lies within the Scottish hills, loch side and close to many amenities. The local holiday village provides facilities to suit all ages; pool, play areas - both indoor and outdoor, golf, onsite entertainment thoughout the days for young children - not to forget the local planned out walks which take you through the hillside where you can enjoy great views of the location to its fullest.
The holiday home itself is fullly equipped and extremely welcoming and homely. It is very well and modernly decorated and spacious, with sufficient room to house 8 people, either adults or children. It also has all necessary needs to make a stay comfortable, ie satellite television, internet etc.
Personally we loved the way there are many things to do on the doorstep. While there are places to visit within a short drive away, as a place to go and relax it was great just being in such a location where we could just go outside and walk, play and relax with our children and friends.
The downside to having a stay at this holiday home in Lochgoilhead is that eventually you have to leave...

"superb house and stunning location"
The journey (about one hour from Glasgow) on the road to this property is along the same road that Paul Mc Cartney immortalised in the classic song " The long and winding road".Lochgoilhead is a very picturesque village by the Loch in the heart of the West Highlands.It has two well established outdoor centres offering the sort of holiday that Scotland does so well.
This property is set back from the shore with a stunning view of the loch and mountains and glens beyond.The house is spacious with 4 bedrooms and a large living room /dining area.The furnishings are very good quaility and it is simply a home from home.We didn't need to bring anything by way odf bedding/towelling or kitchenware to supplement what was on offer.
The local hotel yards from the house is a convenient spot for refreshment etc and the nearby village shop serves all of a holidaymakers needs.
Whilst we were lucky to have good weather,Lochgiolhead is an excellent base to use to explore the surrounding countryside in any weather.
We did feel sheltered and far from the madding crowd but in reality we were back on the motorway in less than half an hour.
This property has no obvious drawbacks and those coiming to this area are presumably familiar with what type of holiday to expect.It suited us fine and I highly recommend it.
