  • "As Jeremy Clarkson said about the Aston Martin V12 Vantage, it's fantastic, it's wonderful."

    ..wonderful...wonderful. Ben View had everything you needed for our stay and I could have literally moved in. We were lucky with the weather as well, about four or five days of sunshine. This gave us a great view of the hills. The house is very spacious the downstairs being open plan as you can see on the photos. A log burner which threw out quite a bit of heat keeps it nice and cosy. Upstairs two spacious bedrooms and a bathroom with a walk in shower. There is another shower room downstairs just off the kitchen. The beds were really comfy and slept like a log. Spoke to the neighbours who were quite friendly and helpful. The Slanj is well worth a visit too. Highly recommended, fantastic property and location.

    Thank you so much for your amazing comments.So glad you enjoyed your stay and hope to welcome you back in the future. Property Owner

  • "Our stay was really nice , good location and the house had all we were looking for regards to the facilities."

    BBQ was a bonus although we only used it once. While we were staying we had a heat wave, 26 degrees and we found that both bedrooms got extremely hot. Unberable on some occassions. The house is South facing so you would expect this however downstairs was a lot cooler? Maybe some thermal blinds on the windows would help both winter and summer. Apart from that we would recommend Ben View, lovely house and very peaceful.

    We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and the house and value your feedback.Sorry you found the bedrooms too hot in the heatwave,it’s not a complaint we normally get.Will look into it. Property Owner

  • "We had a very lovely stay and enjoyed the walks in the area."

    The house was cosy, clean and with good beds. The only tip we have is that we missed good and larger pans for cooking. We surely recommend ‘Ben view’.

    Thank you for your feedback ,we are glad you enjoyed your stay, and the surrounding area. We will take on board your comments about bigger pans. Property Owner

About the location

ARROCHAR

Helensburgh 15 miles.

The village of Arrochar lies at the head of Loch Long, the most northerly point in the network of lochs that extend north from the Clyde Estuary. Surrounded by mountains, the area has become a focal point for climbers wishing to climb Ben Arthur, affectionately known as the Cobbler and other popular mountains in the immediate area, which all lie within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park. Arrochar which offers a large selection of restaurants and pubs and is situated just a mile and a half to the west of the Loch Lomondside village of Tarbet, with both villages sharing a railway station that lies near the high point of the valley connecting the two. Loch Lomond, the single biggest expanse of inland water in Britain offers a variety of activities. Enjoy a gentle stroll through the Balloch Castle Country Park or the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park, which will guide you past attractive lochside villages and sandy bays, or, for the more adventurous, the mountains offer challenging walks and climbs. For a family day out the nearby town of Helensburgh, with its broad avenues, is well worth a visit with a large selection of shop, pubs and restaurants.
