Rowantree Cottage Bed & Breakfast Accommodation, Arrochar, Scotland
Rowantree Cottage was built about 1850 to house workers for Luss Estates. It has recently been sympathetically enlarged and upgraded with the expected modern facilities required today and still retains its cottage character.
Rowantree Cottage is a warm, relaxing and comfortable bed and breakfast located in the centre of the village of Arrochar close to shops, a variety of good restuarants and a pub.
We have two rooms, a double and a twin bedded room. Both have en-suite toilet and shower rooms and stunning uninterrupted views across Loch Long to the 'Arrochar Alps' beyond.
There is a comfortable lounge with a colour TV, VCR and DVD systems for guests.
Private off road parking on the premises is available to guests.
The cottage is an ideal base to explore The Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, the Cowal Peninsula, and local towns and villages such as Helensburgh, Tarbet and Ardlui. Helensburgh is home to Hill House, designed by Rene MacIntosh and looked after by the National Trust for Scotland. John Logie Baird, the inventor of television was born here.
