Loch Lomond Manor is a unique historic National Monuments house constructed between 1901 and 1902. It was built by a husband and wife team, Alexander and Maggie who were part of the Glasgow boys and Glasgow girls’ group of painters, needle women, architects and artisans. As a result, the house was often filled with artists, their influence is still visible today through the many individual feature artworks and tapestries which adorn the walls of the manor house.

The house is perfect for families wanting a luxurious yet distinguished base while visiting the vast and varied delights of the local area, play some golf, walk the banks of Loch Lomond or make some day trips to the Highlands and beyond.

Situated at the start of the highland train line it's possible to take day trips to Oban and Fort William or if you fancy, day trips to Glasgow or Edinburgh by train. While Loch Lomond is no more than 5 minutes over the hill.

The house itself boasts buckets of character and charm across its five individual turrets, with beautiful period features throughout from tapestries in the drawing room to some of the largest bath tubs you will ever see! Loch Lomond Manor is both formal and welcoming. Staying in this house you will experience the golden age of British architecture - Edwardian Scotland - with all its charms!

The Manor can comfortably accommodate up to twelve guests across its six beautifully-appointed double bedrooms. On the ground floor is the spacious entertaining area, guests will enjoy an after-walk game of chess in the elegant drawing room while the dining room is the perfect space for the whole gang to gather and reflect on all the memorable highlights and adventures of the day! The six handsome bedrooms and the sumptuous bathrooms can be found upstairs on the first floor.

Loch Lomond Manor makes a fabulous choice for those travelling with children, with extensive gardens and a fabulous tree swing, there is so much fun for all the family on offer.

  • Beautiful

    Posted by Jean on 13/08/2020

    We had a lovely week at your house, it is really beautiful and has a very special ambience.

  • A wonderful week

    Posted by Jude on 02/08/2020

    Thank you for the wonderful joy of a week in your beautiful home. We had a really special time in your fascinating house and loved every moment. We admired the art work and tapestries and were particularly taken with the beautiful stained glass windows in the music room. We did not notice the bad weather as we just so enjoyed a change of scenery and the beautiful walks around Loch Lomond.

    I would definitely recommend hiking up Conic Hill as it is not too long although fairly steep. It takes about 1,5 hours and the views of the region are spectacular. We enjoyed a few more local walks from just above Hill House and along the Loch which were nice options on rainy days.

    We spent a day in Glasgow and so enjoyed the vintage shops and botanical gardens and my husband John was thrilled to spend a couple of afternoons fishing in the reservoir up the road.

    All in all we had a fabulous stay with so much to do and plenty of time for relaxing at home, reading, playing games and eating delicious meals cooked on the Aga. Many thanks for a wonderful week in a home that oozes charm and feels like a castle.

  • Very nice

    Posted by Frederique on 08/01/2020

    Very nice manor where you just feel like if you were an artist of the end of 19th century. Good vibes in this manor.

  • Beautiful welcoming Manor filled with history

    Created on 28/07/2017

    Our visit was like a great house party where the hosts had forgotten to turn up. A beautiful distinguished house, full of history, art and Edwardian quirkiness. A welcoming atmosphere, immediately comfortable and homely. Generous hosts, despite their absence, leaving a feeling of friendship and true hospitality. Fine helpful and accommodating staff. Great gardens complete with deer who wandered in as we arrived - did Wesley the gardener put them there especially? Great library helpfully displayed to show us the history of the house and its occupants. Beautifully situated with easy access to hiking and historical attractions. A great Aga once you got the hang of it. A fitting five days finale to our 3 week hiking tour of the U.K for nine old friends from 5 countries. Very Difficult to leave the house behind. However, we have hundreds of photos to remind us.

  • A lovely, amazing, warm home!

    Created on 03/07/2017

    We all absolutely loved Loch Lomond Manor! Thank you so much for sharing your lovely, amazing, warm home! We loved the links with the Glasgow arts group. We had seen a very interesting programme on the BBC fairly recently about the Glasgow boys!
    The house is so welcoming, comfortable, we were so at ease within it. Also lovely to come home to after some long and rather wet walks......
    We took the rain in our stride but appreciated the sun when it came out.

    We went all around Loch Lomond, to Luss, Falloch Falls, Crianlarich on to Kilchurn castle, and of course Inveraray. We had a great day at Doune castle and beautiful area all round the loch near there.
    We had another truly lovely walk around Ardkinglas gardens the waterfalls, poetry in the gazebo, rare trees etc!
    Hill House was splendid, loved seeing an identical table outside your drawing room. We also went into Glasgow on the last day to the Mackintosh museum.
    My little niece loved the garden, the swings etc.we drove up to the base of ten highlands and all of us just loved the dramatic scenery, the space. So many great memories.
    My sister (with a little help from all) completed a very difficult jigsaw puzzle of the world in the evenings when we all had some quiet, reading, relaxation time.
    The DVD player came in handy for the little one, once or twice ( she's not yet three) for half an hour or so when she was tired but not tired enough for bed! Thank you so much again for organising that.

    Helensburgh is a truly nice town, some beautiful houses and everyone was so friendly and helpful, it has a good feel. Thank you for all your recommendations, we availed ourselves of them, tea at PJs, Wee Kelpie fish and chips, especially the great Fish! Unfortunately there was no chocolate cake at Hill House! Disappointing! Next time!
    Altogether it was such a lovely week, great family reunion from far and wide.
    Wesley the gardener and co-house keeper was very helpful and friendly as was the housekeeper.
    I truly hope we will be back again, not too far away. We are telling all our friends and relatives. Thank you for your very helpful messages and going out of your way to help, very much appreciated.
    Warmest wishes

  • A beautiful and enchanting home

    Created on 30/05/2017

    I am struggling to find the words to eloquently put how much of a wonderful time we had at your beautiful and enchanting home.
    4 days was not long enough to take in all the character and feeling the house contains. From the moment we entered the house it felt like home and we drew many similarities between our families. Not 15 minutes would pass without us finding something that would get our brains creating stories and trying to distinguish where in the blend of history the original house story would end and your family's story begin.
    Emma has been emotionally drained by the house. The house smell (in a good way) and its contents instantly reminded her of her Grammy and the loving time she spent at her house. Her Grammy was a history & art enthusiast and surrounded herself in books new and old. She loved the Glasgow Boys. Emma never thought she would discover these senses that would generate such reaction. I know she would have loved her Grammy to have seen the house.
    My brother David loved sitting in the front room reading the books as his Wife Asani played the piano. My boys loved the outdoor space playing football on the lawn and down at the swings and the burn. Oliver liked pushing the old Silver Cross pram.
    We are a family with 4 children, 3 close in age and the 4th a lot younger. We are 4 boys ranging 24-32-34-36. The kitchen garden is very similar to our family home.
    My Mum loved all the original Taps etc throughout the house this is the look that she has spent her time replicating throughout the house. The amount of times I heard her say O Bob look at this, Look at these.
    Sorry I seem to have rambled on. I just didn't feel it was doing your wonderful home justice just to say we had a pleasant stay.
    I thank you for allowing us to create a lasting memory that we will cherish and review for years to come.
    The Andersons

  • Such an interesting house with all that history.

    Created on 31/10/2016

    Hi,just to say Thank you so much for all your help and for letting us use your wonderful house. We had a great time! Did Hill House (inc the choc cake) on weds and been on lots of walks and boat trips. The boys were very fond of your garden and we played lots of hide and seek! Such an interesting house with all that history. Rob and I had dinner at river hill last night. Left you a bottle of wine. Many many thanks x

  • It really is beautiful

    Posted by DS on 12/09/2016

    I just wanted to say thanks for a wonderful time at your house. It really is beautiful and very easy to understand why your family has loved it so much.

  • Thank you for a most wonderful stay

    Posted by LC on 29/08/2016

    Thank you for a most wonderful stay at your gorgeous house in Helensburgh. It was a lovely ending to our two month holiday in Scotland.

  • An amazing building!

    Posted by Will on 18/08/2016

    Thank you so much for letting us use your house - what an amazing building with so many stories within it. I imagine your family had a wonderful time growing up there. It was pretty apocalyptic weather when we arrived but we had a good time on the seafront. The Glengoyne distillery is fantastic and we really enjoyed our tour there.
    Thank you again, particularly for Charlie who was a trooper ferrying us around at times!

  • Your house is absolutely amazing.

    Posted by Lisa on 19/07/2016

    I just wanted to say we had a fantastic time. Your house is absolutely amazing and I am so pleased I came across it. The kids absolutely loved the garden in particular the tyre swing. Wesley was very helpful and recommended a great place to go for Sunday lunch. My mum and dad really enjoyed it too and made our trip extra special. Would happily recommend your home to all my friends and family. I hope we are able to come back one day.
    Thanks LL

  • What an honour to stay in a place like your house

    Posted by Very satisfied customer on 25/02/2016

    "we had such a great time at your place. It was even more impressive seeing and experiencing the house in reality.
    We all know, what an honor it was getting the opportunity to stay in a place like your house. It has so much soul, and I felt immediately at home." 25th Feb 2016

  • Beautifully designed house

    Posted by Mrs S on 30/12/2015

    We've had the most wonderful Christmas in this beautifully designed house. Our kids are 7 and 8 and so the little house outside, the rope swing and the open fires have been perfect for them - even in the rain! We've also had Grandparents staying who can't walk too far so they have enjoyed the tranquil atmosphere of the sitting room. Mrs S
