    Cottage gets 10 out of 10. Spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and everything you could possibly need. It was extremely hot while we were there and we were even supplied with fans. Outdoor space is lovely/quiet with views of the hills. It is a very convenient location to travel all around the loughs and towns.

    Acorn cottage was very well equipped, everything you could think off was provided. The cottage is modern and cosy, a good base for exploring central Scotland. The owners are a lovely couple and made our stay very enjoyable. A delightful welcome package, some wine and basics in the fridge, even a pack of smarties for our daughter. I would recommend Acorn cottage highly for anyone looking to stay in the area.

    Wow what a lovely place, Alison and Allen had us at such short notice! They had the travel cot up and stair gates ready for our toddler. Even bread and a bottle of wine for us which was a welcome treat after a stressful day! They had thought of everything even to our dog with treats for her. Location is ideal as it's in the central of most things and beautiful walks at your doorstep. We can honestly say we had such a fab time exploring the area and coming home to such an amazing cottage! Thank you so much ali and Allen, we hope to be back soon!
