"Beautiful house in a stunning, restful small loch-side town"

The previous week we stayed in Loch Lomond and Anchorage House was to be our second part of our holiday. The beautiful Victorian 'apartment' has been lovingly decorated with the most gorgeo… More

wonderful guests who are welcome back anytime, we always appreciate feed back and there will be a new wok, the fridge is a bit more difficult but as we plan to renovate the kitchen in a couple of years that can certainly be arranged. We hope to see you all again next year.

"Amazing views, peaceful location but also plenty to do and see in surrounding location."

We stayed here as a large family gathering and had one of Scotland's sunny summer weeks! Weather was lovely which made the week all the more enjoyable but should you experience "indoor" weather then the owners have put a lot of thought into providing entertainments, especially for younger guests in the form of DVD's, video games and board games.

The house has 3 good sized bedrooms and a smaller one too (although small one has best views!) Well stocked kitchen with washing machine and dishwasher which comes in handy with large groups. Living room has a great bay window looking onto the harbour which was my spot of choice for morning coffee. The house was nice and clean when we arrived and should you need to during your stay, there's a vacuum cleaner to tidy up.

The village itself has a well stocked local shop and 3 walkable local hotels providing food and a bar. In the local area there's a really nice beach you get to by car then walking, the Oystercatcher at Otter Ferry is worth a visit as is the new marina complex at Portavadie.

Being from Scotland, I'm glad we uncovered this part of the country as it is a hidden gem that we'd certainly return to.

Thank you so much for your review, we appreciate you taking the time, it's great to know we get things right.
