“Wonderful Wedding week at Highward”
Reviewed 21 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We had this property at the end of August 2015 for a wedding celebration. The property is absolutely fantastic with spectacular views across Loch Lomond. The house has everything you could possibly need including a great pool. The owners are friendly, courteous and nothing was too much hassle for them. I have no hesitation recommending this property which gave us one of the most memorable weeks for a special occasion.

“What a Brilliant Place”
Reviewed 20 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

Our daughter booked High Wards to mark the end of a difficult year. The estate is beautiful with plenty to do. The house is absolutely wonderful and finished to a very high quality standard. All your needs are provided for and Emily and her husband were truly remarkable in the help they gave us. We will certainly look to return in the future. Every one of our friends said they had a wonderful time and we all have great magical memories of our stay. Thanks Emily.

“MAGIC SCOTTISH WEEK END”
Reviewed 15 September 2015 for a stay in September 2015

We were 19 friends for my husband 50th anniversary, and we spent a fantastic stay in Highwards. The bedrooms, beddings and mattresses are wonderfull. The estate itself was beautiful, great views and lots of space to relax and Emily, the owner, was very friendly, helpful and accommodating to us. We have all left High Wards with memories that will last a lifetime, and many of will hope to return one day.

“Wonderful weekend”

My husband and I were celebrating our seventieth birthdays and chose High Wards as it was close to Edinburgh in term time for school age grandchildren and seemed to provide luxury for adults while being child friendly.It was everything we could have hoped for - spacious, comfortable and well-equipped with spectacular views of the Conic Hill and Ben Lomond. We all enjoyed the pool while the children were delighted to find a well-stocked playroom, an outdoor adventure playground with Wendy House, a tennis court and a garage full of ride-on cars, bikes and scooters. We sailed on the mailboat round the islands on Loch Lomond on Saturday morning but otherwise enjoyed our beautiful holiday home.

“Wonderful Wards Estate!”
Reviewed 27 July 2015 for a stay in June 2015

After falling in love with the place we decided to book High Wards for our wedding. We had 35 of our closest family and friends with us for the weekend staying between the house, the cottage and a neighbouring B&B. We couldn’t have imagined when booking how amazing it would have been, it certainly exceeded our expectations!

Emily (the property owner) couldn’t have been any more helpful in the run up to the wedding offering lots of suggestions and answering any questions we had. Her friendly, relaxed and welcoming manner made the stay at High Wards so much more enjoyable.

The house itself is stunning and as you drive down the private road you can’t help but gasp when you see it for the first time. Its surroundings are spectacular, so colourful and very peaceful. It is beautifully decorated and very well equipped with everything you could possible need, and more! It’s an excellent size for a large group, we could be gathered together in one room and not have the feeling of being over crowded but there was more than enough space if you wanted to take time and have a quiet five minutes. Each of the rooms were large and spacious and with all but one having an en suite it allowed all of our guests comfort and privacy from the rest of the party when they needed it. The house is also very well equipped for children. We had two young boys with us for the weekend and they were well entertained, from time in the swimming pool to time in the games room they were never bored.

For us the weekend couldn’t have gone any better. Some of the special moments included the pre-wedding dinner having everyone round the kitchen table, the wedding dinner itself in the conservatory surrounded by our family and friends, the evening ceilidh starting in the Great Room and spilling outside, the BBQ the following day and of course being able to hold the ceremony outside under the fixed gazebo. The comments we have received from those who attended our wedding have been wonderful, one guest said it was the best event (not just wedding!) he had ever had the pleasure of being invited to.

There’s so much more that could be said for High Wards but the best thing would be to go and see for yourself. It lends itself to every event you could think of, from a wedding to a relaxed weekend with family and friends. This place will not let you down. The only disappointment it brings is that you have to leave!
