Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Marr Cottage is a very comfortable well placed cottage. Its great for family holidays and also that cosy holiday for two love it. Nov 2012.
  2. Property is in a good location for accessing ths beautiful Loch Lomond area. Not easy to get out of the drive onto fairly busy road, with a bend just before the exit, best to get someone to be on foot as lookout. Very good for walkers and easy access to the Loch if you are a water enthusiast. Good for fishing as well. May 2012.
  3. Beautiful location by the river. Well equipped including a wine fridge! May 2012.
  4. A very quiet and tranquil setting and a good base for walking. May 2012.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Beautiful location. Lovely cottage, would book again. July 2011.
  9. The cottage was excellent the pictures don’t do it justice the stream at that ran at the back of the cottage was beautiful couldn’t of wished for a more tranquil spot. June 2011.
  10. A beautiful well equipped cottage. Stunning location and within easy reach of local amenities, comfortable beds and well heated (it was May after all!). Definitely hoping to book again next year! May 2011.
  11. Much larger inside than it appeared from the outside pictures. Lovely countyside views whilst very convenient for Glasgow city centre. Feb 2011.
  12. Beautiful, cosy cottage in a fabulous setting. Feb 2011.
  13. The accommodation had good access it was very clean and warm when we arrived the kitchen was clean and very suitable. Nov 2010.
  14. 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.
  15. It was of a very high standard the best accommodation we have stayed in. Sept 2010.
  16. Was very clean and lovely but as we had a some rain during the days we stayed were were unable to use the outside decked area as it was very slippery. Cottage had everything we needed and all aspects had great care and attention. Sept 2010.
  17. It had everything we wanted. Aug 2010.
  18. Clean and tidy. July 2010.
  19. Well laid out and very spacious. Loved funky decking over river. July 2010.
  20. The property was lovely, well furnished and comfortable. The outside balcony was very useful for BBQs and had a very nice view overlooking the river. June 2010.
