"Wonderful vacation rental"

This vacation rental (Buzzard Cottage) was everything we were hoping for and more. We loved the location, the gorgeous views all around us and the sound of sheep in the morning. The accommodations were really cozy and spacious. We felt right at home and would definitely go back.

And we would be delighted to welcome you back, thank you and best wishes from both of us.

"Great location for Fishing and Golf"

We have rented Buzzard cottage for the past two years and will do so again; God willing.The hired used of a boat offering exclusive access to Lake Menteith is a real benefit and makes Buzzard cottage a must for any anglers wishing to sample the not inconsiderable attractions of Scotland's premier trout water. The cottage is well presented, comfortable and clean and the owners Alison and Matthew make any stay here in and of itself a pleasant experience; nothing is too much trouble to them. My friends stay here for the fishing and the opportunity to take on some truly delightful Golf course, Callander and St Fillans being a couple not to be missed. In all a great place to stay if fishing and Golf are your "thing" but if you're simply looking for a spot to explore the area you could a lot worse. The views over the lake are memorable.

Thank you for this review. I am quite sure that anglers and golfers who read it will find it most useful. We look forward to welcoming your group back this year and trust that you will enjoy the improvements that we will have made to Buzzard. As a keen chef I am confident that you will appreciate the new kitchen and utensils. Best wishes from the Nether Glenny Team.

"Idyllic location. Cosy cottage to get away from the madding crowd."

Buzzard Cottage is ideal for two people. Very cosy with an authentic sitting room complete with wood burning stove. An up to date and well fitted kitchen is well equipped to enable guests who wish to prepare their own meals or do some laundry if so desired (washing machine very handy to wash walking gear). The bedroom is comfortable & spacious and the well appointed conservatory diner means you can enjoy the view of the surrounding countryside at any time, whatever the weather. It's a lovely place to stay.

Thank you for taking time to review Buzzard cottage. We are always pleased to hear that our guests enjoy the features of the cottages. Very best wishes from the Nether Glenny Team.
