Benjamin and Ines Audibert – February 2017
Liz and Ivan’s place is simply wonderful ! It’s clean, very well-decorated and the view from the living room is stunning. Liz and Ivan are great hosts, they were so welcoming and made us feel at home immediately. We highly recommend the Scottish breakfast for an extra £6 per person, it was truly delicious ! Thank you for everything Liz and Ivan, we would definitely come back again, it was perfect !

Vivien – January 2017

We had a lovely stay here. Liz and Ivan were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. We would definitely go back!

 Melinda Jennings – October 2016
Possibly one of my favourite Airbnb experiences. Liz & Ivan were so friendly and helpful, they made us feel right at home straight away. The home was absolutely beautiful, as was the property it’s set on. It’s a bit out of the way down a long and windy road but the semi-seclusion is relaxing (plus it’s only 10 minute or so drive back to the Main Street). Loch Lomond is quite expansive but we found this a great base for exploring, plus Ivan & Liz were really helpful in giving us advise for where to explore. Would gladly recommend this to anyone staying in the area. Thanks again Liz & Ivan!
Mandy Mihelic – October 2016
Liz and Ivan have been the most lovely hosts.  The room was very welcoming and comfortable, everything was very clean, the sitting room homely and Ivan’s breakfast was superb, even his wonderful and friendly service.  We briefly got to meet their two lovely dogs which were very cute.  We only stayed one night before moving on but would highly recommend this place to others and we would be back if we are in the area again.  Thank you.
Beverley Zaifman – October 2016
Amazing place to stay and explore Lake Lomond and the Trossachs! Ivan and Liz are spectacular hosts – friendly and helpful! Everything was clean and comfortable. Additionally, the grounds are spectacular on their own. I would highly recommend staying here! I would come back if back in Scotland.

Lauren Babcock – September 2016
Great refurbished hunting lodge in the country. Beautiful views, quiet roads, and lots of trails and paths to explore. Liz & Ivan are extremely accommodating and welcoming. Very large bedroom and sitting room.
Tim Atkins – August 2016
Our stay was really great and we were very impressed by how welcoming Liz & Ivan was on arrival. The room was clean, bonus tea/coffee with kettle and we had a giant pot of tea and chocolate biscuits in the lounge once settled. There were lit candles all over the house which gave it a special touch. The area is very beautiful, lots of farms around and plenty of places to explore. The 9 hectare garden has a beautiful river running alongside, wild fruits and twisty paths. We wish we stayed longer than we did so special thanks for going beyond to make us comfortable. Definitely be back and will let our friends know about this gem.
Boris Wertenberg – August 2016
We spent 2 great days in Liz and Ivan’s guest house. They were so lovely and peacefull ! The house is perfectly situated and the garden marvellous with games and places to seat. Liz is a great advisor concerning the walks in the area.
Briggs Macon – August 2016
You’ll not find a more beautiful and relaxing retreat than Liz and Ivan’s spacious Gallangad Lodge in Gartocharn! It was here we discovered hospitality unsurpassed in a warm and welcoming area of incredible natural beauty! Liz and Ivan are friendly and were attentive to our every need, Liz even washed and folded our clothes when we inquired if we could “borrow” the washer! The bedroom is wonderfully spacious and the king bed perfectly comfortable. The full Scottish breakfast here is not to be missed! Gallangad lodge will definitely be a return destination for us when we are next near Loch Lomond!
Kelly Chong – August 2016
Wish that our stay was for a week rather than 1 night. This place is just magnificent! It feels like another holiday just being on the property. Animals, nature, croquet and the trees! So beautiful and quiet, just what we needed after a busy week at work. The living room was great and breakfast kept us going. I highly recommend this place as Ian and Liz were great hosts and I would return to stay for much longer next time!!!!
Alexandra Lodge – July 2016
Liz and Ivan were wonderful hosts – very warm and welcoming, and they went out of their way to accommodate our dietary requirements for the full Scottish breakfast (which was very tasty!). The house is lovely, our bedroom was very spacious and they have a large and bright living/dining area for guests with a brilliant outlook over their large gardens. My partner and I very much enjoyed staying here and would certainly return if we end up in the Loch Lomond area again!
Sophia Quenby – July 2016
Liz and Ivan’s place was great. Set in gorgeous scenery close of Loch lomond. Nice and quiet location with gardens to walk round and explore. The room was everything we needed, comfy bed and a good size. The lounge is also great to relax in. Liz gave us a great recommendation for a place for dinner that night by the Loch. Both Ivan and liz were really friendly and breakfast was yummy too. Thanks for a great stay.
Jessica Jones – July 2016
Liz and Ivan were very welcoming and keen to make our stay as comfortable as possible. We were greeted with a cup of tea and delicious scones! The area is beautiful and peaceful. They also provided a great breakfast in the morning in a very relaxed atmosphere.
Emma Cerone – July 2016
Really lovely one night stay in a lovely former hunting lodge with brilliant hosts. Really great location not far away from Glasgow and a perfect starting point for drive into Loch Lomond national park. Ivan met us when we arrived very late at night. He could not have been more welcoming. Lovely breakfast.
Jonas Losau – July 2016
We had a wonderful stay with Liz and Ivan, whose house is a perfect distance for the first section of the John Muir Way hike starting in Helensburgh. Especially since their place is located directly on the John Muir Way, so you’re right back on track the next morning. Green surroundings and very quiet for a good night’s sleep. Spacious room and bed, great interior design and lounge as well as good included breakfast.
