“Very relaxing, beautiful garden, dog friendly”
Reviewed 23 August 2015 for a stay in August 2015

We had a very short stay from Monday afternoon till Wednesday morning as part of a Scottish road trip. We had Done a lot of travelling and walking so took the opportunity to have a chilled full day on the Tuesday - the sun was shining so we were in the garden all day. Safe for our dog to wander round too. Lovely location, clean accommodation, very friendly staff. Enjoyed the hot tub both nights.

“Fantastic cottage for a big group”
Reviewed 20 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed at burnbeag cottage for 3 nights for my friend's 30th birthday. The cottage is fantastic with 3 big bedrooms, full sky tv and wifi but the highlight is definitely the hot tub, we were in it every day and someone came to clean and refill it every morning. Would definately recommend this to anyone looking for a fun weekend away.

Management Response
9 Dec 2013
Thank you for your review. I am pleased you found the location great and appreciated the features of this property. This property benefits from great feedback from virtually all guests that stay here.

Naturally we are concerned about the negative points you have raised and wish to address these and inform of what we can do to correct matters if anything.

I think you must be referring to the farm track towards the hill that does not form part of this property. It does get muddy as one would expect when it rains and wellies or walking boots are advisable if you are going to walk there. I am sure we advise this on our website? We are a rural location after all. The property itself is accessed by a mono block driveway of approximate 30 meter length down to a large mono block parking area. There is no mud here and normal footwear is perfectly adequate. For those who wish to check this please refer to the photos for this property or the 360 degree tour which is on our website. www.loch-lomond-accommodation.co.uk . It is not our intention to concrete or tarmac the countryside any further than reasonable or permissible by planning rules.

You are absolutely right, wooden decking does become slippy when wet, it’s even worse when it has ice on it. We are very much aware of this. This is the same for all wooden decking not just ours. The decking at all the properties have anti slip strips to mitigate against anyone slipping. Of course we are reliant on our customers walking on these and we do advise you to not stray off these. Further to this the decking also has handrails. All our decking is regularly cleaned with a jet hose to limit the build up of moss and grime. I struggle to see what further we could do to assist on this matter and address your concerns.

I am sorry you did not find our medium firm mattresses to your liking. I have looked into this and wish to report the following. There are 5 single mattresses ( from one manufacturer )and one king size ( another manufacturer ) in this property. I have spoken to the manufacturers and as they are all 2 years old but have a 5 year guarantee they have been inspected independently. The result is that they have been found to have no deficiencies and are not broken. They are all pocket sprung which means that if you poke them you will feel the springs in the pockets. Perhaps you are just not used to pocket sprung mattresses, they are different from memory foam?

To try and give our guests a choice we have now provided memory foam toppers to the beds. This will give our guests the choice of keeping them on or removing them so they can tailor the beds more to their preference if mattress type is a concern.

I note you left early but you did actually inform us you were leaving early before you even entered the property.
