“Our 2nd Christmas at Drumalban, drawn back by unique ambience, elegant interior + top class log fire.” Drumalban's view down the loch, the colours changing through the day with the varying light, is reason enough to want to spend a week here. In 20 years of taking self catering lets, both summer and Christmas, I have not found a better stocked and equipped kitchen, unique feature of which is its mezzanine location. The kitchen layout allows the chef both freedom of space , and opportunity to be included in the wider buzz of the group. Add on relaxed and helpful support from Kirsty - Drumalban is a very reasonably priced self catering gem.
Had booked Stronefeld for a weekend. Owner was very helpful with arrival times and instructions. We were there to work on a boat at Marina so can't comment much on surrounding area but to find the cottage was already stocked with bread, milk and wine was a very pleasant surprise. Easy walk to the friendly local pub, a real log burning stove, well provisioned kitchen and very comfortable accommodation.
Shame boat is moving this year or I'd already be booking up for next year! …
Celebrating a 30th birthday
We booked Drumalban to celebrate our daughters 30th birthday. We wanted somewhere that we could be together as a family as her birthday is on Christmas Day and it's a difficult time to get everyone together.
What a place! It was exactly what we wanted as she is an English teacher and was having a book themed birthday! With the library and all the little bits of decor dotted around the house, especially the giant Alasdair Gray poster, the house couldn't have been more perfect.
It was so nice to be able to have her friends and family visit and be able to accommodate them and the kitchen was so well equipped to be able to cook meals for everyone.
The garden was perfect for our dogs and our 6 year old grandson! They had a ball and were very tired every evening.
The views are stunning and such a pleasure to wake up to every morning. No matter where you look or drive to, the views are beautiful.
The house is so comfortable with everything you could possibly need and more! We had the log fire on every evening, so cosy!
We had quality family time in an amazing place! …
