“Excellent self-catering accommodation near Loch Lomond”
Reviewed 21 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

We found this lovely renovated Old Dairy by an Internet search and booked it for a week due to its close proximity to Loch Lomond and the venue of our son's wedding next year. The owners were very helpful, booking and payment was straightforward and a welcome pack was provided on our arrival. The property was impressive with stunning views over the fields beyond and the accommodation was comfortable with everything we required being provided including a wood burning stove with logs supplied - very cosy in the evening! The village of Gartocharn was within walking distance where there was a village shop and restaurant. We also enjoyed several walks locally and in the park in nearby Balloch. There was several golf courses a short drive away and we played on the 9 hole course at Strathendrick and had an enjoyable supper at the Drymen Inn also situated a short drive away.

“Comfortable cottage at a stone's throw from Loch Lomond”
Reviewed 11 October 2014 for a stay in September 2014

The cottage is a beautifully converted farm building, with a modern and comfortable interior complete with all mod cons. Especially the bedrooms are a generous size and suited us, a family with 2 young children, perfectly. The lounge is rather small, but that didn't bother us as we had great weather and were outside a lot. The owners live right next door and were on hand throughout our stay to help whenever we had questions. The kids toys, as well as the fresh eggs, bread, butter etc. provided were a real treat. The chickens in the chicken run, as well as the large trampoline on site further enhanced the holiday for our kids.

“Stunning cottage and location”
Reviewed 21 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

Had very high hopes of the Old Dairy cottage at East Cambusmoon from other reviews and the owners website.
Our time there certainly lived up to it!
The cottage is beautiful, very clean and well equipped. We really appreciated the eco friendly aspects of the cottage- all very inspiring. The cottage was very comfortable and the setting is just so relaxing and peaceful.
Normally, we like to try different places for holidays but I think we will make an exception for East Cambusmoon. We'd love to come back with a larger family group and explore a bit more of the area. Three nights were just not long enough!

“Wonderful cottage and great location!”
Reviewed 14 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We had a great week at this very comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage with amazing views in a fantastic location. The cottage suits a family or two couples very well and every consideration had been given by Deborah and Steve in the groceries provided and in equipping the kitchen, utility and bathrooms. We had walks up the "dumpling", a very achievable hill at the end of the driveway and the views over Loch Lomond and the countryside around were stunning. Our dog loved walks in the farm's fields and to the village of Gartocharn, and the cottage was easy to keep clean after the dog with the vacuum cleaner provided! We are looking forward to staying again soon!

“Wonderful setting, made very welcome with lots of extras, great value”
Reviewed 24 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We spent a mid week break last week and were charmed as soon as we saw the old dairy,
Everything was clean and in immaculate order and all the extras provided by Deborah and Steve were amazing ( especially the eggs and home made bread). We had our beagle Abbie with us and there were no problems everyone made us very welcome and Deborah and Steve were very helpful as we were looking at property in the area. Would definately return for another break as so peacful and planty to do and see in the area. Child and pet friendly also.
