We loved this place,

Martin was there to meet us. It was clean, tidy, and had everything we needed. Nice touch with the bread, wine, milk, and tea cakes. Very impressed. We will be back for sure.


October 2020

We loved everything about our stay - a really lovely place.

Everything has been thought of, it's obviously real labour of love. Absolutely spotless, tastefully furnished, wonderful. Safe traffic-free environment to let young children play outside on the swings and playhouse without being micro-managed which they love.
We visited in autumn and the trees on the estate were gorgeous - but I would imagine that would be the case at any time of year.


October 2020

High standard accommodation with a very good cleaning regime for Covid19 - excellent location with privacy respected.


September 2020

Very nice stay.

Nice welcome from Martin. Everything we needed was in the cottage lovely and clean. Nice and peaceful.Lovely views. I will be recommending the Cottages we where here at the beginning of this year before lockdown and said that we would return which we have and would return again.


September 2020

This is one of the nicest cottages that I have ever stayed in.

We loved everything about it - it was SO clean and we felt so safe. The instructions and protocols were clear and simple. The kitchen had everything we needed, the views were spectacular, and loved that we could access a shared laundry. There has been so much thought put into all the small details - even the towels! We would love to come back again.


September 2020

The cottages are in an idyllic location both for walking & days out.

Oak cottage was extremely comfortable & the cleanliness was outstanding. The staff was always contactable if ever we needed anything. We had a very relaxing stay.


September 2020

We stayed in Sycamore Cottage and had a wonderful time.

It was beautifully maintained and had all the facilities we needed - we cooked dinner in the cottage a few evenings. The weather wasn't great during our stay so it was nice to have a lovely cottage to come back to when it was raining outside.


August 2020

A really lovely, secluded spot in a beautiful location.

Cottage and facilities were well presented and hosts very friendly and helpful.


August 2020

This was a last-minute booking and for what I could find in terms of a cottage in Loch Lomond it was a good find.

The location was fine as our stay was short. We enjoyed the surrounding of our cottage however was unable to explore these with our 2-year-old and the limited days we had. The cottage was super clean, simplicity made it easy to look after use. The starter pack and amenities available was definitely helpful. I would come back again.


August 2020

It was our second time staying and we are hoping to come back.

It is a lovely relaxing place and the cottage is so clean and comfortable. Peaceful and quiet location yet still close to various places to visit and things to do.


February 2020

Lovely clean beautiful cottage.

We stayed in Rowan cottage for 3 nights with the dog. The cottage was comfortable and had everything we needed. The estate it was on was fantastic for taking the dog out first thing before heading out for the day. We didn't use the games room but is a great addition and an option on a rainy afternoon. Met on our arrival and shown to our cottage, we had a slight problem on arrival which was sorted within minutes! We look forward to returning.

Traveller from Carlisle, GB, January 2018

Truly fantastic location overlooking the mountains around Loch Lomond.

The cottage with two bedrooms and sofa bed was perfect for our sons family able to join us. Facilities excellent with table tennis on hand and tennis courts but we did so much walking in the hills during the day that evenings were spent eating! Thank you to our hosts who made our stay very welcoming. Would recommend and hope to be back again as the location is perfect for exploring.

Traveller from UK, November 2017

Thank you so much for hosting us, we had a lovely stay!

The cottage was warm and cosy; the bed was really comfortable and the special honeymoon welcome you prepared for us was really thoughtful. We hope we can come back!

Traveller from Wales, November 2017

Wonderful stay at Finnich Cottages, quiet and peaceful location and superb accommodation. Very convenient for exploring beautiful Loch Lomond and surrounding areas. Will most definitely be returning in the future!

Traveller from Donegal, October 2017

Very clean, well finished, complete cottage and fully equipped.

The peace of nature is felt in the cottage. This has a nice view over the garden or the mountains of the highlands. The owners leave you alone, which is very pleasant to us. That way we could go our own way.

If you like nature and tranquility, this area is very suitable. Forests lakes mountains, in this area everything is nature. If you like more of the rugged nature, we recommend the Highlands. For us, Scotland is the place to be after this visit. Of course, this success has also been the case with Finnich Cottages.
We ate in the evening at various pubs. The Old Mill in Killearn, The Wayfarers in Croftamie and the Clachan Inn in Drymen are top places to eat. We also recommend Luss The Coach House Coffee Shop.
Take the mountain road from Inverberg by car. You will encounter West Highlands in wild nature.

Traveller from Netherlands, October 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Finnich Cottages, it was really nice.

Due to the rainy weather, we spent more time than usually in the flat but it was a relaxing and comfortable atmosphere.

Traveller from Isernhagen, DE, September 2017

Oak Cottage is truly lovely.

The pictures on the website don't do it justice, as it is quite a lot bigger than it looks. The cottage is cosy and really well appointed, and having the laundry room across the courtyard was a real bonus. The setting is amazing, and the grounds are lovely. Couldn't have wished for a better holiday cottage. I can't recommend it enough.

Tips for other travellers
The Clachan Inn at Drymen is a great pub with real ale and lovely home-cooked food. All the nearby Lochs are fabulous, but we particularly liked Loch Lubnaig, near Callender - great for canoeing!

Traveller from Dunley Stourport-on-sever GB, September 2017

Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful.
The grounds were lovely and the information book very helpful.

The bird of prey center was very good and the staff very friendly.

We really enjoyed our stay with you.

Traveller from Lindsey, GB, September 2017

We had a great time relaxing and taking trips from her to the highlands and lowlands.

The property is secluded in a very quiet and lovely place but a short druve to Drymen, where you find everything you need. Staff was extremely helpful especialy Martin, who helped us with anything we needed and more. Definitely recommend the place and I hope to come back soon!

Traveller from Praha, CZ, August 2017

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Lovely, quiet location. Everyone pleasant and helpful.....what more do you need for a holiday!! I mostly did walking, touring or cycling so didn't utilise too many facilities. The cycle route from Croftamie to Balloch was very enjoyable and well sign posted. Along the west side of the loch towards Luss was a bit too noisy with road traffic. Walked from Rowardennan up part of the west highland way and that was very enjoyable. Balloch country park was lovely and the local fish and chip shop cook the fish to order which is always a bonus!

Traveller from Musselburgh, GB, July 2017

We enjoyed our stay at Finnich Cottages even though the weather was not good.

The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. The area is very beautiful.

Traveller from Mulbarton Norwich, GB June 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Finnich Cottages. Everything exceeded our expectations.

A great place for accessing Loch Lomond National Park and Glasgow. Facilities were excellent and the cottage was a great value. We hope to come back again some day. We highly recommend taking the walk through the woods on the property as described in the guidebook left in the cottage. It leads to an amazing view of the area. The wayfarer was a great nearby place to get food and is very family friendly.

Traveller from Englewood, US June 2017

A stunning abode in a stunning location.     
Drive down the beautiful country driveway, step into a fantastic, clean and comfortable cottage - and feel right at home! Our view from the lounge overlooked green fields and distant mountains. Our view from the kitchen, towards a formal, paved courtyard surrounded by lovingly restored farm buildings. We were able to roam the grounds, relax or play a game of table tennis in the vast hall, or head off for some wonderful sight-seeing, including Stirling Castle. We also took the train from Balloch into Glasgow, an easy 45 minute ride.

So convenient. So pleasurable

Traveller from Australia, June 2017

Ausgezeichnetes Cottage!

Endlich mal eine Ferienwohnung, die wirklich so ausgestattet war, wie im Internet beschrieben. Das Cottage befindet sich zudem auf einem wunderschönen und sehr großen Anwesen, das zu Spaziergängen einlädt. Direkt vor unseren Fenstern Schafe, herrlich! Wir hatten das Glück in der Blütezeit der Rhododendren unseren Aufenthalt dort zu genießen-einmalig. Ganz Schottland war ein blühender Rhododendron! Die großartige Lage dieses Cottages und die hervorragende Ausstattung haben sehr zu einem gelungenen Urlaub beigetragen. Wir kommen gern dahin zurück!


Traveller from DE, May 2017

I spent four wonderfully quiet days at Rowan, just the way I liked it.

The view alone from kitchen/living room, and from the bedroom was idyllic. The cottages are ideally placed to explore the area. The owners were lovely and a hitch of the heating was fixed in no time. The spacious shower was a delight.

Traveller from DE, May 2017

Fantastic location. So peaceful, and wonderful views.

Cottage very well equipped,with extremely comfortable bed, so always feel well rested for another day exploring the beautiful hills and glens and lochs in the area.. Any problems or questions and the owners could not be more helpful. Easily gets 5 stars from both my wife and myself.

We recommend.


May 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Sycamore Cottage.

The location was fantastic with stunning views over the Trossachs and within easy reach of great places to walk. During our stay we hiked Ben Lomond, visited parts of Loch Lomond and Loch Ard and hiked the Arrochar Alps. The cottage itself was homely and spotlessly clean, well furnished with a nice comfy bed and a very well equipped kitchen. We would highly recommend Finnich Cottages and will certainly look to stay again when we are next in the area.

Matt, Jasmine and Otis the dog , May 2017

This was a fantastic place to stay while we explored the Trossachs.

The cottage was lovely, and has fantastic views of the hills from both living room and bedroom. We had a wonderful week here that went too quickly.

Would recommend to friends and family!

Rebecca , Apr 2017

A welcoming cottage with a friendly feel.

Staff were very helpful and we enjoyed our stay. Hopefully we will return soon.We enjoyed a family friendly day at the (free) transport museum in Glasgow. We also rode our bikes along the side of Loch Katrine (you catch the steam boat up the Loch and then cycle back 14 miles on undulating roads with hardly any traffic) and around Falkirk (16 miles) which took in the Helix park, the Kelpies and the Falkirk Wheel. We also climbed Conic Hill for a great view.

Traveller from Nottingham, Apr 2017

Lieux magnifique entouré de nature.

Nous avons pu apprécier la proximité du loch lomond et de la nature écossaise. Le cottage est trés soigné et propre. La décoration est de qualité. La vue par la fenêtre du salon est splendide. Les enfants ont adoré joué dans la petite cabane prévue pour eux. Nous essayerons de revenir quand il fera plus chaud.

Traveller from Belgium, Feb 2017

We had a wonderful stay at Finnish cottages with our three children.

The cottages are in immaculate condition, with excellent heating and super comfortable beds. Host Marguerite and Andrew were warm and welcoming full of information about the property and surrounding area. There is plenty of space for the kids to play and run around and we had some great walks around the property spotting the local wildlife.

Traveller from Australia, Feb 2017

Such a lovley cottage and beautiful view!

We felt very at home and loved all the small details and the wonderfull environment. It was also very nice that there were some of the things in the house that you forget sometimes while self-catering such as dish-washer tabs, dish clothes, spices and so on. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. You can feel the deep love and care that were invested in the cottage.

Traveller from Berlin DE, Jan 2017

Excellent all round.
Amazing views just outside your door walking in the grounds around the cottages is lovely. Swings for the children their very own swing park just outside. Just drive through the country side see the lovely villages all around the area. Plenty of places to stop and have something to eat.

Traveller from GB, Nov 2016

Thank you very much for a holiday we will never forget.

After spending our first week at beautiful Skye, we did not expect too much. But the Finnich Malise exceeded our expectations. The oak cottage was lovely and the views were absolutely spectacular. Opening the curtains in the morning was very very nice, and the sunset was beautiful. Our three children also had a great time. They loved playing outside, and on the rainy days we all played in the games room.

Bertie, Aug 2016

Once again our stay was delightful.

The grounds around the cottage and the view are wonderful. The quiet peaceful location suits my dog and we shared many happy walks accompanied at times by the dog-in-residence. A good central location for outings close by and further afield.

Traveller from  GB,  Aug 2016

Traveller from  GB,  Aug 2016

The Cottages are located in beautiful surroundings.

They are like a hidden gem. The place is so tranquil and well kept.
We always like to return, when coming to Scotland. We have been staying with Marguerite and Andrew for five times now. As this would not be a compliment by itself, we keep on recommending the Cottages to our friends.

Traveller from GB, Apr 2016

The perfect place for a quiet relaxing break.

We loved our short stay in Rowan House, Finnich Cottages. Lovely clean and comfortable apartment in a nice period building, with a courtyard and set on stunning grounds. We had a lovely view from our room and enjoyed walking around the grounds, even spotting a couple of deer en-route. The owners Marguerite and Andrew were very nice.

Traveller from Galway IE, Jun 2016

Words cannot describe how fantastic this place is.

Cottage is beautiful set in the most tranquil surroundings. What a peaceful two weeks we have had. Our spaniel had the best time ever. We were also “lucky” to have had snow!! Our kids enjoyed it immensely. Andrew and Marguerite who own the property could not have been more helpful. John the caretaker is just wonderful. These people have mastered the art of country living and are more than happy to share with holiday makers. We will most certainly return here.

We had a fabulous week at Finnich Cottages.
The Park and the area around the cottages were absolute beautiful.
Marguerite and Andrew have provided absolute exclusive conditions. Rooms, facilities and Patio have high standards and the silence during the night was outstanding. The recommendations for shopping,dining,visiting found in the sitting room were all very helpful. We both left with good feelings.

Such a fabulous place for our family to stay.

The facilities were excellent, particularly the games hall which my kids used throughout one very rainy day. The location is perfect for visiting Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, many beautiful sites being within an easy drive. The cottages and grounds are fantastically maintained, with the cottage in particular being cosy and comfortable. We will absolutely be back!! Thank you so much for a lovely stay.

My wife and me had a wonderful stay in the Rowan cottage.

It is lovingly and comfortable appointed and has a picturesque view in westward direction to Ben Lommond and the other Bens around Loch Lommond. Faboulous sunsets. The owners and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Thank you and we’d like to be back.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Oak Cottage at Finnich – the setting was wonderful and we were lucky to have a week of glorious weather.

The accommodation in the cottage provided everything we needed and was extremely comfortable – it was even better than it looked in the photographs! Good Wi-fi connection
Although we didn’t have children staying, the Games Room and the estate would provide a wonderful time for any Visitors.
Finnich was very conveniently situated and we enjoyed trips to Glasgow, Stirling and many of the nearby Lochs.
Marguerite and Andrew were extremely welcoming and attentive hosts.

We had an excellent holiday in this lovely cottage.

The beds were comfortable, lots of storage space, clean throughout. The bathroom was great and the kitchen well equipped and we had everything we needed. The views from the living room of the mountains was a highlight as were the walks in the estate. We were pleased with our welcome…thanks for the wine! Lots of maps and information in the games room. The area is fantastic….so much to do even on rainy days. Good pubs within a few miles so eating out was easy.we were there as a couple but for a family it is ideal. Very safe and interesting for children. We climbed Ben Lomomd and visited Glasgow and Stirling as well as enjoying lovely walks around the lochs. I would certainly recommend this cottage to friends and hope to go back again.Oak cottage has a lovely patio outside which feels very private. The TV reception and wifi are both excellent. There is a barbecue but you need some Scottish sun for that! All in all, this is a great place to stay

Outstanding location with comfortable high quality accommodation.

Relaxed and friendly hosts which added to the feeling of relaxation. Great for families as plenty for kids to do rain or shine. Thanks for fab holiday! Hope to revisit soon!

Lovely location with spectacular views.

Very comfortable cosy cottages which have been restored beautifully. Everything you would need is in the cottages. Free WI-FI was much appreciated by our children. The walks around the grounds much appreciated by our dog! Patio and BBQ got great use due to the fantastic weather. We hope to be able to return. Would definitely recommend. Tips for other travellers Great location for touring round Loch Lomond and the Trossachs. Also very handy to Glasgow.
Oak Tree restaurant in Balmaha is good

A perfect holiday location…
We spent a 3 weeks holiday at Sycamore Cottage. We enjoyed it very much. The cottage was just perfect for two persons – a nice bedroom with a large bed, an open kitchen and a comfortable living-rooom leading to a patio with table and garden chairs. Finnich Malise is perfect for discovering south Scotland-we even went to Skye. The owners, Marguerite and Andrew, who live only 100 yards from the cottage, were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very much and are sure to come back soon..We’ll recommend the cottage to our family and all our friends

The Birch cottage is a delightful place to stay.

From the booking process on, the communications with Marguerite where impeccable and she was very helpful finding some suitable dates for us amongst her other bookings. It’s cosy, comfortable, and quiet with plenty space for four adults. The views of, and around the estate are beautiful. We enjoyed several brilliant walks in the Loch Lomond area which looked stunning in the autumn sun. Marguerite pretty much leaves you to your own devices but is on hand if needed, this is all well documented and explained in the welcome book. The cottage was clean, and well equipped with a a fully kitted out kitchen (a coffee filter machine!!) and quality bedding. Luckily we didn’t have any bad weather but in case you would be forced to stay in, there’s a brilliant big hall within the steading which has table tennis, a pool table and table football in it. Finnich cottages are going to be very high on our to-return-to list, maybe even taken over the first place……!

We had a fabulous week at Finnich Cottages.

We stayed in the Sycamore rooms.
The Park and the area around the cottages were absolutely beautiful.
Marguerite and Andrew have provided absolute exclusive conditions. Rooms, facilities and Patio have high standards and the silence during the night was outstanding. The recommendations for shopping, dining, visiting found in the sitting room were all very helpful. We both left with good feelings
