Customer Reviews of The Mar Cottage, Nr Drymen , sleeps 6
1st comment: Lovely cottage, very warm and inviting, excellent location. Just the waether was not at all good, rain, rain and rain, finishing with gales. Jan 2012.
2nd comment: It was superbly situated overlooking a shallow but fast-flowing river and the cottage was very comfortable. It was also splendidly equipped with every necessary kitchen item. The showers were new and worked well. We met the owners who came immediately to attend to a minor electrical problem and they were both charming and helpful. The property is on the quiet side of Loch Lomond and the road past it leads to a small marina and goes no further - hence not much traffic. And we never even saw a midge! July 2011.
3rd comment: Marr cottage is a very nice property. We enjoyed the location greatly. It comfortably fit 2 couples and 2 young children. The setting of the cottage alongside a small river (with a nice deck overlooking it) was lovely (we even spotted an otter and a martin during our stay). The cottage is furnished comfortably and is impeccably kept. July 2011.

9th comment: The accommodation had good access it was very clean and warm when we arrived the kitchen was clean and very suitable. Nov 2010.
10th comment: The cottage was lovely. It was decorated neutrally,was attractive and very comfortable. It was spacious, with more than enough room for 6 adults and a dog! Marr Cottage was very well equipped including everything you could need in the kitchen and there was also a docking station for ipods and sky tv. Just what we needed for a lazy evening after a long walk up the Cobbler! It was wonderful to open the curtains in the morning and to see the stream/river flowing just behind the cottage. Sadly it wasn’t BBQ weather while we were there but it would have been lovely to sit on the terrace, eating al fresco overlooking the river. Maybe next time. We would certainly stay at Marr Cottage again. Sept 2010.
