Customer Reviews of The Barn, Fintry, sleeps 4
1st comment: Good location for Loch Lomond and the near by cities, house very comfortable and great being able to go out of door and be able to walk. Owners very oblidging, cottage very clean and comfortable. Aug 2011.
2nd comment: This was the best equipped self-catering property we have ever used. The cottage is approx 5 miles from the nearest shop and it was so good of the owners to have things like cleaning products etc already provided. The provision of eggs from their own hens, milk, bread, home-baked cake and wine was such a lovely touch. We LOVED this property. July 2011.
3rd comment: A fantastic holiday cottage - really home from home. The hosts went above and beyond with thoughtful welcoming gifts (wine/fruit/cake/freshly laid eggs), and lots of toys for my young son to enjoy. They really had thought of everything. The location has beautiful countryside views, but is still within easy reach of Stirling/Glasgow and popular tourist spots, such as Loch Lomond. We would love to visit again, and highly recommend it to others. June 2011.
