Brain and Nancy were the most helpful of hosts from booking to departure, and a very nice bottle of red, along with milk, bread and jam was waiting for us on arrival.
The lovely house has everything you will need, and fine views from the windows over Loch Long. It was hard to pull away from watching the wildlife and the comings and goings of the ferries over the Loch; but during the week we travelled to Oban and had the short boat trip over to Mull, visited Loch Lomond, RSPB Lochwinnoch, Largs and we caught the Kilgreggan ferry to Gourock and the train to Greenock. We also had a local walk to the top of the Rosneath peninsula, and had good meals at the Kilgreggan hotel and the Massala Twist Indian restaurant in Helensburgh.
We had a full week in early January without a drop of rain!- but hope to visit the area again during the summer months.

My husband and I booked the Cragowlet House for our anniversary trip to Scotland and we couldn't have asked for better accommodations. The house is so clean and beautifully decorated with everything needed for a weeks stay. We loved everything about it, the lochviews from the dining room table and living room, the soaker bear claw bathtub, the fireplace and the location was wonderful for long walks along the Loch Long.We highly recommend this wonderful little piece of heaven. The hosts Brian and Nancy are wonderful gracious people that went above and beyond to make our stay just perfect. So thank you very much for that!
We stayed at Brian and Nancys House for 3 days and it was overall lovely. Nice house, great sorroundings and great landscape. It lay directly on the waterfront and we enjoyed more than one sunset there. They were very forthcoming with all of our requests and we thank them for letting us stay there.
Cragowlet House East is a beatiful house with elegant decoration and very cosy, extremely clean and comfortable at the same time. We just loved our stay there. The views are stunning and we will never forget the morning coffee hearing the waves in the garden.
The owners are very, very kind and left us a welcome present and worried if we arrived ok and needed something. They are very nice and supportive.
Moreover, the position of the house is great, The area is beautiful. The area is beautiful, with beaches to go with the kids and we also spent a great time in Kilcreggan pub. Apart from that, it's near many important things to visit in Scotland and in a week we could go to Edimburgh, Glasgow, Stirling, Inchmurrin island (we found it in the list of suggestions of the owners of Crawgolet and we loved it, it's a paradise with great food), Inveraray castle, the island of Arran (wonderful as well) and the National museum of rural life and Summerlee Industrial Museum.
We have spent a lovely stay in Cragowlet and we would love to come back!
