My wonderful Mil OFFERED to take my 2 dd for one or 2 nights next week. We are going to go away to a hotel or guest house within 2-3 hours of Greenock. Loch lomond, St Andrews or even the Lake District are all options. Any recommendations of places to stay?
We love St Andrews as went there for our honeymoon (9 years ago) and often go for short breaks or day trips. But what hotels are good? We stayed in Craigtown meadows on our honeymoon, as we were young and poor post graduates.
It has to be the Lodge on Loch Lomond. Has a spa and great restaurant but best of all you have a sauna in your room and a balcony overlooking the Loch. All like a giant log cabin and so romantic! You could go over on the Ferry from Greenock to Dunoon and drive over Rest and Be Thankful down to Loch Lomond. It is one of the most scenic routes in Scotland and I always think a ferry makes you feel you are going 'out of the world'. It is a long way from Greenock to St Andrews for just one/two days.
