Roll on the Summer

New Cottages front

Easter’s been and gone. Roll on the Summer!

Everything’s happening in Glasgow this summer and if its too busy for you, there’s always the peace and tranquillity of Loch Lomond. Both are a mere twenty minutes away by car or train.
We have the Commonwealth Games and Radio 1 Big Weekend coming to Glasgow along with a host of other events. So Glasgow’s definitely where it’s at!

Our five self catering holiday cottages were full over the Spring fortnight and our guests enjoyed some glorious weather. We only have a few available weeks left in the summer period and we’re currently doing great deals for Autumn stays. Our Highland Cows are enjoying the new grass and we have new lambs in the fields too. The tadpoles are also back in the pond next to the cottages and we’ve seen new chicks hatched at various nest sites in the hills behind the cottages.

Also for the summer we’ve introduced a new walk in the hills. Instead of following the road to Loch Humphrey, some of our guests have been trying the paths through the woods behind the cottages. This is accessed by following the walk towards Loch Humprhey and taking the gate on the right, which leads into the woods. You will find lots of tracks meandering up through the woods to the top of The Kilpatrick Hills. These were made over 100 years ago by previous land owner, Lord Erskine so he could travel through his Estate on his pony and trap while looking across the River Clyde to his stately home, Mar Hall – it used to be Erskine Hospital for Wounded Servicemen, but is now The Mar Hall Hotel.
