Fresh linen and fluffy towels will be provided. The cottage has electric radiators and is very snug.

There is a WiFi transmitter in the cottage providing a fast and reliable connection.

There is an LCD Free-View TV/DVD player and a selection of DVDs. The TV has an A/V inputs so you can use it to watch your movies from your own device.

In the summer there is plenty of wild garlic growing by the door - help yourself and use the leaves in cooking or salads.

You'll see from the photographs that there is an area to sit and have a BBQ. You can either use an instant BBQ or we can lend you a small grill for use with charcoal.

There is a wide choice of cafes, restaurants, bars and pubs within walking distance if you do not feel like cooking.

If you need space for extra guests please ask, there is also a double bedroom with adjacent shower room in the house that may be available.

MOST IMPORTANT: When you book you'll get the address and directions. You can use SatNav/GPS to get to Balloch but then PLEASE FOLLOW OUR DIRECTIONS. GPS WILL TAKE YOU TO THE WRONG PLACE! There is no house number and we are NOT in Fisherwood Road.

The Cottage is self contained with a full kitchen and bathroom offering you complete privacy.

We are available to help you organize your day outs and with anything else you might need.

There are lots of walks around the loch from here, or a 4km walk along the riverside to Dumbarton Castle and Maritime Museum.

Balloch has seven pubs and numerous restaurants, all within 10 minutes' walk. There is often live (folk) music in the Doghouse pub, see below.

FINDING LOCAL MUSIC & EVENTS

(Holiday Lettings won't allow web links so we have shown the words you need to type into a search engine using "".)

There are two pubs in Balloch that offer live music, you can check on their sites: "stonegate inns" then put "balloch" into 'town'.

Further afield (you need a car) is 'Pub of the Year 1705' - The "Drovers Inn at Inverarnan" at the north end of the loch or, on the east side of the loch, "The Oak Tree at Balmaha".

There are two main events listing magazines for Glasgow:

"the list glasgow"

"the skinny" which tends to list more informal free events

“Just what we were looking for”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2014

A few quiet days away to ourselves is what we wanted and that's exactly what we got. The cottage is very clean and very well kitted out. We had no disturbances and felt very relaxed. The weather was pretty bad (but that's what we were expecting) so we spent a lot of time in the cottage, chilling out, watching movies, eating junk. its the perfect place to do this. Didn't want to leave. would definitely go back.
