3rd comment: Cottage warm,comfortable and welcoming. Ideally situated for exploring both the local and surrounding area. Handy for people with dogs, as there is a forestry visitor centre 500 yards down the road with 2 way marked woodland trails, great for quick walks in the morning/evening. Oct 2011.
4th comment: Enjoyable holiday at Lomond View Cottage, it was an ideal base with excellent facilities and the welcome gifts on arrival were much appreciated. Balahama is a lovely location with The Oak Tree Inn just a short walk from the cottage serving excellent food with a cosy atmosphere, there is also a well stocked local shop. Would recommend a stay.

6th comment: Absolutely faultless, everything we hoped for & more. Stunning views from cottage, welcome gifts a lovely extra. May 2011.
7th comment: Lovely cottage in a superb location. Thoughtful welcome gifts, wine, milk,biscuits,chocolates and drinks. So many lovely walks and places to see that 1 week just wasn’t enough. Highlight for us was the walk to Milarrochy Bay, gorgeous! One way to improve would be to have the garden enclosed to make it easier for dogs. Would go again. April 2011.
