“Peaceful”
Reviewed 17 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

Just what the doctor ordered we had a lovely time in Brig of Turk and the lovely Ridings studio apartment was newly upgraded and in a very peaceful setting. The area was brilliant for hillwalking and the owners were very helpful. Ian gave us advice on the best places to eat. The Byre Inn and Vennacher Lochside cafe and restaurant were absolutely fantastic the food was superb. We will definately be back.

“A perfect little base for exploring the Trossachs ”
Reviewed 26 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

What a lovely studio apartment it was, perfect for what we needed. The kitchen is very well equipped and cooking dinner is not a problem if you don't fancy going out for a meal. It's in the perfect location for hiking and exploring the Trossachs. We highly recommend and hopefully we will return as there is still so much to do in the area.

“Quiet location for a short stay”
Reviewed 1 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

West Riding Studio is an excellent location for touring the Trossachs and beyond. Brig O'Turk is surrounded by hills, lochs, and is the Woodland Trust's largest reserve. There are lots of well marked paths for easy walking as well as the opportunity to venture further into the hills and forest. Both the Byre Inn and the Trossachs Tea Rooms are a short walk away and provide very good food and drink. The Studio is small but cosy and provided all our basic needs for a short stay.

“Great Stay for couples”
Reviewed 31 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

With Ben Venue mountain as a back-drop and set in an idyllic location we enjoyed a comfortable and friendly stay at The Ridings in the beautiful Trossachs. The Studio is cosy and well equipped, and the owners Penny and Ian are welcoming and helpful. Brig O Turk is set between 3 lochs and a reservoir in the middle of the countryside but with everything to hand including Brig O' Turk's Tearooms (huge slices of cream cake!) and The Byre Pub with real ales a few minutes walk away, and country walks on your doorstep. We particularly enjoyed the picturesque walk to the local reservoir and our trip on the nearby Loch Katrine on the steam ship.
