  • "The cottage was perfect, comfortable clean warm, a high standard of facilities and owner very nice and helpful."

    .Bed very comfortable!

  • "We had a lovely personal welcome from Fiona on arrival and the welcome pack of Scottish treats and flowers inside the cottage was a lovely touch."

    The cottage was a great central location for our plans to walk and climb, starting with the nearby 'Dumpling' Hill recommended to us just five minutes walk away. It gave us our first views of Loch Lomand within an hour of arrival. There was a lot of useful tourist leaflet information in the cottage if you don't have your own plans. The amenities in the cottage are comprehensive including a fully stocked kitchen and a cosy log/coal wood burner. The only improvement I would suggest is a larger TV in the living room. Nearby Balloch has a lot to offer from the helpful tourist information centre to the beautiful Balloch Castle and Country Park. We even went by train from Balloch to Glasgow for the day at a very affordable price. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would not hesitate to stay at Teag Bigh again if returning to the area.

  • "This was a lovely, comfortable, well-equipped and immaculate cottage."

    The owners had thought of everything, there was even milk and little treats waiting for us on arrival - very thoughtful and very much appreciated. The owners are such a lovely couple and very welcoming and friendly without being intrusive, and were very helpful (Fiona even looked after our plants we'd bought at the local garden centre!) We had a wonderful holiday in this lovely part of Scotland with stunning scenery (the weather was very good too - which is always a bonus!). We would definitely recommend this cottage.

  • "The cottage and hosts were excellent but the location as advertised through photos on Sykes was misleading as it had photos of views of open fields and there were none and the property was very near a busy noisy road this should be put in the description."

  • "Thanks to Fiona, our friendly hostess for the pleasant and cosy stay in her cottage which exceeded our expectations with its high ceiled sitting room."

    We have enjoyed the walk to the Dumpling from the cottage giving us the panoramic view of the Loch Lomond! Highly recommended!

  • "The cottage was very comfortable for the 2 of us."

    If we'd been taller than we are the sloppy ceiling in the bedroom might have been an issue, but it was fine. Fiona (the owner) was very helpful and welcoming. The fire in the lounge was nice after a day out exploring in the rain.

  • "This cottage is one of the very best I have stayed in."

    It was very comfortable, beautifully presented and had everything you could need. It was also in a near perfect location where we could get to loads of great places for days out without having to travel very far. I cannot recommend it enough.

  • "We had a wonderful Christmas and wedding anniversary here and Fiona is such a lovely friendly person."

    The welcome pack and homemade Christmas cake was a lovely surprise and the cottage was well stocked with everything we needed and more! We slept so well, the bed was so comfortable, a real home from home. It was well situated for lots of day trips and walks and easy for getting the train to Glasgow. Thanks again, we will be back again.

  • "Only stayed for a long weekend but the cottage had everything we needed."

    the warm welcome from Fiona and the biscuits and Scottish tablet was a nice touch. the cottage was warm and cosy and spotless clean. the only gripe was that there was no mirror near a socket to dry your hair (from a womans point of view). We would definitely stay for a full week the next time we holiday in the area.

  • "The cottage is beautiful , very clean and comfortable."

    The owner is very welcoming and helpful, she puts milk in the fridge , biscuits, crackers and fudge on a tray as a welcome for the guests , which is a very nice gesture. The location is perfect and you can visit many places from there, the surroundings are very scenic. We had an amazing week and would recommend staying here to anyone . Yvonne and Arvin from Suffolk.

  • "Rather than a holiday, it was for the funeral of a relative at quite short notice."

    We found booking hard (anywhere in the Loch Lomond area) so took this as a sort of 'last resort' because we would have preferred a longer stay. The place was perfect and exceeded what we expected - Thanks.

About the location


Helensburgh 8.5 miles; Glasgow 20 miles.

Known as the gateway to the Loch Lomond & The Trossachs National Park, Balloch sits at the south end of Loch Lomond and is on the main road connecting Glasgow to the Western Highlands. Its popularity as a tourist town grew in the 19th century with the increasing number of boats arriving to tour the Loch, as well as foot passengers by rail from Glasgow. Today there are many boats that will tour the loch from Balloch including the elegant paddle steamer The Maid of The Loch. The Loch Lomond Shores shopping complex has a wide range of outlets and cafes and there is also an aquarium and Balloch Castle Country Park with its 200 acres of woodland. As well as the majestic loch, the surrounding scenery includes superb walking and cycling and Ben Lomond at 3196 feet is the most southerly of the Munros. Glasgow and Stirling are both within easy reach and provide a great day trip whether it’s to see castles, galleries or to indulge in superb shopping and dining.
