This gentleman spent 7 days at our cottage and managed to spend a day in Edinburgh and a day in Glasgow. He visited the Isle of Arran and spent much time visiting the historic castles and sites throughout Ayrshire. Thanks for leaving the cottage in a very tidy state. Hope you visit again sometime in the future and many thanks.

"Peace, quiet, and so friendly"

Thanks to Robert and David (and Jasper), for a lovely week. So helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble to ensure we had what we needed to enjoy our stay. The cottage is set in a quiet peaceful location but within a few minutes car journey you can be in the centre of Glasgow. The biggest compliment we can pay is that we hope to visit again.
Thanks again

This family spent a week at the cottage and managed to take in many of the sites in and around Glasgow, Ayrshire and Argle & Clyde. We would welcome you back anytime, many thanks.
