  • "We had a lovely week at Ellanderroch."

    The cottage is beautiful and is well equipped with everything you need for a self catering holiday. It's clean , cozy and the king sized bed upstairs is so comfy. There's amply off road parking and a garden with table and chairs on which we enjoyed a relaxing evening meal , weather permitting. The cottage is also perfectly situated to explore this beautiful part of Scotland. Highly recommended.

  • "A well cared for cottage with a lot of thought given to its overall décor set in a small village."

    Ideal point for visiting Loch Lomond and other Lochs . A thoughtful basket of goodies made you feel welcome on arrival. We had a peaceful and enjoyable holiday break

  • "Beautiful little cottage, Naomi left us a lovely basket of goodies which was a nice touch."

    We did a lot of local walking and further afield all with stunning scenery. There was no dishwasher but not a deal breaker my Hubbie did it all! Although the bed was very comfortable, when we came to strip it off on the day we left the mattress was badly stained, we were glad we hadn’t seen it at the beginning of our stay.

  • "This is the perfect holiday cottage for a week in the Trossachs."

    Everything is well thought through and all the practicalities were easy to follow. It was very clean and felt safe. It's so well insulated we couldn't feel the gale blowing outside! The starter pack was great and very thoughtful. The bedrooms are particularly comfortable. We look forward to revisiting.

  • "Fantastic cottage in a great location - close to Glasgow and Loch Lomond in a village that has everything you need."

  • "We have just returned from our stay ay Ellanderroch and thoroughly enjoyed our time there."

    The cottage was very light, airy,relaxing and very clean. It is ideally located in Drymen for pubs,restaurants and walks straight from the doorstep and those visiting should take advantage of the walk to Balmaha over Conic Hill, views are stunning and driving a little way to climb Ben Lomond which provided the most fabulous views. We visited Stirling and Glasgow both within 20 miles of Drymen and are well worth the trip.(we used the local bus to Balloch then train direct into Glasgow all ran to time and it was good to leave the car behind so we could enjoy a little tipple) All in all we had a great holiday made a little more special by Naomi's welcome pack.

  • "The cottage is in a great location."

    There are great pubs and restaurants in the village. Great place to explore Loch Lomond. We were met with a welcome pack from the owner which was lovely. Initial impressions were that cottage was clean, the bedding looked fresh and the cottage is well decorated. We didn’t find the sofas at all comfortable but that may just be us. The beds were very comfortable. However the washing up bowl had food debris in, the oven was dirty with greasy grill pans left inside. The soap drawer of the washing machine wasn’t clean. In the shower room there was mould on the sealant in the shower and on the shower screen. The rug in the lounge was very grubby. The drawers in the downstairs bedroom had hair and dust in. During our stay I dropped something down the side of the bed in the downstairs bedroom, the dust and hair there was unacceptable. Before leaving we were asked to strip the beds, we found only one bed had a mattress protector and there were no pillow protectors. Four out of the eight pillows were stained as we’re both duvets, one with what appeared to be blood. This really is unacceptable at any time, but in the current situation with COVID it seems worse. I didn’t speak to the owner at the time as I didn’t want people coming into the cottage while we were staying there so in they’re defence they weren’t given opportunity to put things right. The reality is though this should never have happened. We’ve stayed in Sykes cottages many times but have never experienced this before. Really disappointed.

    Dear Mrs Sweet, Thank you for highlighting your disappointment to us. I am so sorry the cleanliness of the cottage was not up to standard. The comfort and safety of our guests is our upmost concern. I can assure you that the duvets and pillows are cleaned and checked regularly but I apologise if we have missed noticing a stain. We will replace these immediately. We have taken this weekend for maintenance so we can deep clean the cottage and ensure this will not happen again. I have informed my cleaning team of the issues and have asked them to be extra vigilant, taking more time to check all corners and crevices are thoroughly cleaned in future. It is a shame that you did not inform me of this while you were here as we spoke on a couple of occasions and I could have offered a solution at the time. I’m sorry that you were disappointed by the cottage, it has been a busy season and we have not had access to the cottage for deep cleaning until now. This is something that we will keep in mind for future years to ensure the property meets our high standards. Many apologies once again. Kind regards Property Owner

    Lovely place to spend a week away, and ideal for a base to explore. Situated in a lovely village with plenty of amenities. The kids loved the added bonus of the books, games and dvd's provided for them to use. Would totally recommend a stay.

    We do not go on holiday to be woken up at this hour ! Do not go if you have a long car as it is difficult to get out of the drive due to tall hedges and traffic measures out side the property. The property is ok but the stairs are steep and twisty .

  • "The cottage was excellent for our family of two adults and two children."

    It was very clean, and had lots of books/games available for the children to play with if the weather was bad. Fortunately for us the weather was great. The location was excellent for our needs, with day trips to Loch Lomond, Aberfoyle, Stirling and Glasgow. A large grassy area was for great for the kids to run around in during the evening.

  • "Super cottage- we were a little concerned prior to arriving as we say they accepted dogs and don’t normally rent properties which have had dogs."

    However the cottage was super clean. It was private too even though it adjoined the owners property. Thank you for a very pleasant stay.

About the location

DRYMEN

Loch Lomond 4 miles, Aberfoyle 10 miles, Stirling 21 miles

The village of Drymen, nestling within the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, was popular with Highland Cattle drovers in the 18th and 19th centuries due to its location and legend has it that Rob Roy MacGregor used Drymen as a base for his exploits against the Duke of Montrose. Today the village is popular with tourists who enjoy not only its attractive village green and selection of pubs, shops and restaurants, but also its location allowing access to Loch Lomond. The West Highland Way and the Rob Roy Way both pass through the village and nearby Conic Hill and mighty Ben Lomond and perennial favourites with walkers. Drymen is the ideal base for exploring most of central Scotland with both Stirling and Glasgow in easy reach. Drive up the west shore of Loch Lomond and explore further into Argyll with Arrochar and Inverary an easy day trip – just don’t be too distracted by the stunning scenery.
