Are pets allowed?

Yes, we can accommodate one or two dogs. Please let us know if you plan to bring your pet.

Is there a restaurant/pub within walking distance?

The nearest pub or restaurant is 3 miles away in the village of Drymen. Unfortunately it is along a busy road with no pavement. However there is a regular local bus service which runs until 10.30 pm. There is also a reliable taxi service.

Can you recommend somewhere for good food?

Yes The Clachan Inn, Drymen is superb. However in season it is very busy and we advise booking in advance which we will be happy to do for you.
