Guestbook comments from the owner

The Cottage was beyond our expectations, space, comfort & luxury.

Well situated for days out and about, especially tourist sites & shopping.

And a warm welcome from the landlord of the Swan Inn (food scrumptious)

We had a fantastic holiday.

Perfect for a family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We planned a family holiday to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. There were 8 of us in total (6 adults and 2 children). The house was perfect. There was enough room for all of us and no getting under each other's feet. We also took our dog who loved the walks nearby and the chance to go swimming in the burns around the house. The walk around the loch was lovely and there were plenty of running routes down to the canal and into Kilsyth. The bedrooms were very comfortable; the kitchen a generous size for us all to eat in; the lounge spacious enough for us all to sit in. We were only half an hour from Stirling Castle, the Kelpies and Falkirk Wheel, Glasgow Science Centre so there were plenty of places to visit to keep everyone amused. I would love to go back in the summer to take advantage of the enormous garden and bbq area! We went to Glenskirlie House for the birthday meal and it was fantastic - definitely recommend going there!

The house was always pleasantly warm and we didn't run out of hot water. The house was clean and tidy when we arrived and easy to keep clean during our stay. The owner was very prompt when we had questions and extremely helpful. I wouldn't hesitate in staying here again.

Just right accommodation for our trip

  • 5 of 5

Great spacious, comfortable, and reasonably priced accommodation. We were in Glasgow for a para -swimming competition and this house suited us as a group of swimmers, parents and coaches. Very well equipped, more than enough cutlery, crockery etc. to cater for hungry swimmers. Good bedrooms and the 3 1/2 bathrooms great for avoiding the bathroom rush in the mornings. Great location near the loch with visiting wildlife. We had a cat chasing a fox around the garden and early morning visit from deer as well as constant bird song. We were a reliable 35 minutes motorway into Toll Cross Pool even in morning rush hour. The lack of broadband and a poor mobile signal (OK in the garden or upstairs windows) was a bit of a nuisance as the competition organisers decided that start sheets and results would only be available on line and not on paper! That said the Boat House restaurant does a great hot chocolate to enjoy whilst borrowing their WiFi. Thoroughly recommended and I suspect we will be back next year if the event is in Glasgow again. Accessibility notes Worth considering this property if you have access requirements, obviously discuss your particular needs with Mark the very helpful owner-. The property is well laid out on the ground floor including one ground floor bedroom with fully open shower / wet room. en-suite. The unmade road approach, gravel drive and front steps mean that access by car needed but the large kitchen diner and all downstairs is accessible via a ramp that leads to the rear decking area overlooking the garden and beyond. Mary B and the swimming crew.

Great Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Loch End Cottage. The property, which is very clean and well maintained, feels bigger than it looks in the photographs and all the rooms are very spacious, providing lots of room for us to spread out. We particularly liked the well equipped kitchen and large dining area. All the bedrooms are a good size but the master bedroom is particularly impressive with a luxurious en-suite. We found lots to occupy the family, including a trip into Glasgow and even spent a day at a lovely beach at Aberdour, only 40 minutes drive away. But mostly we will remember the large, private garden area and grounds beyond, which are full of wildlife, lead to a wide range of walks straight from the door and provide a real sense of tranquility. Heaven!
