“Absolutely Fabulous Holiday Accommodation”

This is one of the best holiday cottages we have stayed at. The owners have thought of pretty much everything and their photos don't do it justice. The cottage is open plan on two floors, with lots of separate places/nooks and crannies, so if you're a big group, you wouldn't feel on top of each other. The beds and seats are extremely comfortable. The floors are all slate or wood, so no worries about getting them dirty - they're easy to clean. The kitchen has just about everything we could need, and doubling up on china and cutlery was a godsend, as we didn't have to wash anything whilst waiting for the dishwasher to finish. We loved the American style large fridge/freezer with the ice maker. The bottle of wine when we arrived was a very welcome touch, as we're all the books in the office. Our two Cavalier King Charles have thoroughly enjoyed all the doggy things - dog basket, water/food bowls and the bonios kindly left by Glenise and John. The Wifi connection was excellent. The views from the cottage at the back are stunning - we went on some circular walks from the cottage through beautiful countryside. There are plenty more positives - we would just like to thank Glenise and John for letting us share their cottage, and we'd like to come back (if they'll have us!)

Stayed at Glenvarloch with a party of 7 on our first trip to this part of Scotland. The property was luxurious with excellent facilities and made for a relaxing retreat after a days walking in the surrounding countryside.

The property is located in a small village and is on the main road which was not quite as remote as we imagined from the photo's.

Exploring the Loch's, climbing for a snow ball fight on the mountain, seeing Red Squirrels, deer and interesting local towns made the stay highly enjoyable.

Thank you for your 5 star reviews on all points - it's a pity you allowed the road that provides easy access to so many locations in less than an hour was the only negative for you - especially as there were those of your party who had stayed with us last year and were fully aware of the benefits. Best wishes, J&G

“My stay at Glenvarloch.”

One of the best weekends I've had. Never done anything like this before and it was the most enjoyable experience I've ever had. The only thing that let it down was the weather, which can't be helped. Especially at this time of year.

Beautiful house, warm, spacious and has great facilities. The underfloor heating was amazing and the beds were comfortable.

Wifi was good considering you don't get high speeds that far out in the countryside.
Would recommend to a group of friends or a family get away!

Floors are slippy! Wear shoes or slippers with grips.

Thanks for the review - we will ensure that it is noted on future information emails to visitors that Glenvarloch is a 'house in the country' with hardwood & tiled flooring throughout, whilst we trust that outdoor footwear is left by the door, sensible indoor footwear should be worn - but no 'High Heels' please :-) Best Wishes, J&G
