“Nice well-equipped cottage with a garden in walking distance to local shops and restaurants. With great attention to decor that makes you feel at home. We enjoyed our stay very much. The online communication with Matthew is easy and quick. A great recommendation for anyone who wants to explore the Loch Lomond or Loch Tay region.”
“Small cottage within walking distance of all Killin amenities. Newly appointed kitchen, highly efficient central heating and very clean presentation. ! double room and 1 small twin bedded room, Separate dining and sitting room. TV in every room! We were out every day so never availed ourselves of so much visual media. Free WiFi a bit slow but that is probably a Highlands problem. Only 1 toilet within the bathroom. Situated on a very quite road but no views from the house, garden small but we had no need of this. For 3 adult men this house was perfect for a Munro bashing week, there are so many 3000 ft mountains close to Killin. Even for 3 of us in a house billed as for 4 guests it worked out much cheaper than B&B as well as giving us greater freedom.”
