  • "Upon arrival the knifes were all blunt , no scissors and there was no clothes horse for drying the clothes."

    The next day they supplied these. However here are the issues that existed : - 1. No egg cups 2.No salt and pepper 3. The bed pillows had large mould marks on them in the master bedroom (photos can be supplied) 4. The upstairs bathroom needed a new bulb as the light flickered consistently. I did request this but to no avail 5. Two of the cooker knobs were severely melted which made it difficult to adjust the settings. 6. The washing machine leaked as there was a consistent patch of water in front of it. 7. The recycling bins were too small, only one of each for the whole set of cottages. 8. In the description of the cottage it states that the internet service is not good. There was no internet whatsoever during our stay.

  • "Fantastic family holiday ."

    Cottage was clean and spacious . Very basic kitchen utensils as expected but enough to be able to make meals each day . The hot tub was a major hit with the family . Loved seeing all the farm animals too. Will defiantly be coming back . Even though it rained every day but one we had a wonderful relaxing family break.

  • "I have stayed at meiklebob before, maybe 4 years ago and this experience though still good, did not quite measure up to expectations based on my previous stay."

    Disappointed that there was no hand soap at any sink in the cottage, and I thought the fact that the kitchen didn't have a chopping board was really poor. Other than this, we still had a great time.

  • "The cottage could have done with some more cutlery (Tin Openers and so on."

    ) Maybe a Welcome pack with some Dishwasher tablets & More toilet roll. Other than that we enjoyed our stay very much.

Today it is renowned for its outdoor activities with the world famous 7stanes mountain biking complex nearby as well as forest walks in Glentrool, where you can follow in the footsteps of Richard Hannay in The Thirty Nine Steps.
