About Claire MacLellan
The MacLellan family have lived at The Lorn since 1989 and lovingly restored the old property to bring out its best whilst still retaining its tradition and charm. We hope to provide guests with the real flavour of staying in an old Scottish farmstead. We are a busy family and all enjoy making the most of our surroundings as much as we can: mountains, skiing, tennis, walking, water skiing, painting and photography.
Claire MacLellan purchased this Cottage in 1989
Why Claire MacLellan chose Alexandria
We fell in love with The Lorn the minute we saw it - roses round the front door and such an overwhelming feel of how right it was for us.
What makes this Cottage unique
The property is tucked away in a private country estate overlooking Loch Lomond and accessed down a wooded drive. You are met with the most stunning view of the Loch, its islands and the majestic Ben Lomond before your turn a bend in the road and see The Lorn. The unique view is so spellbinding and the property so charming, it provides guests with a blissful feeling of comfort and peace.

Such a beautiful place
This was a great rental and the perfect place to stay. Claire was so friendly and welcoming and her dog Lopez was so sweet. The cottage was just what we wanted and had all the amenities. Would definitely come back!!!
Thank you for your review - we are delighted you had such a lovely stay in Lui Cottage following your special day in Gretna Green. You filled your short stay with fun days out and have returned home with happy memories of your time at Loch Lomond. Thank you for choosing Lui Cottage - it was a pleasure meeting you. Paws up from Lopez!
Lovely cottage in great location
A really well equipped cottage with all the essentials plus more. Very comfortable for 2 with good access to all the local attractions.
Claire was really welcoming and suggested some good things to do. We walked up Ben Lomond which was worth the 2.5 hour hike up to the top because the views were amazing.
Recommend a boat trip on the loch from Balloch. Had a great lunch at Samphire in Inverary.
Words are not enough to describe the location of this property
Set in the most stunning position close to Loch Lomondwith ever changing views of the Loch itself and the skies, whether sunny or grey -it is never disappointing - beautiful. the property is lovely -clean and perfectly stocked with all the bits and bobs needed for a self catering bolt hole. Very thoughtful welcome basket with wine and nibbles - Comfy bed too. All very nicely presented. Ideal location for travelling around. So quiet there too, great walks. Our dog Charley, a senior black lab was very happy there, it is dog heaven. We hope to be back again soon!! Missing it already. Thank you to Claire and Gavin for being sharing their lovely little bit of Scotland and being very thoughtful hosts. Best Wishes Jane, Mike and Charley
Thank you very much for your lovely review. We are delighted you both had such an enjoyable stay in Lui Cottage and have returned home with happy memories of your holiday. You made the most of your time here exploring the Loch Lomond area and appreciated all that is has to offer. The weather was kind so the scenery was at its best - even on a dull rainy day the views are still stunning though. We hope Charley has had some paws up time since returning home and not too many dreams about the Walter Scott steamer! Thank you again for choosing Lui Cottage and for leaving it so neat and tidy. We'd love to see you again, it was a pleasure having you to stay.
Lovely Loch Lomond
Recommend this beautifully decorated cottage with a stunning view across Loch Lomond from the garden. Owner very friendly and helpful.
Thank you for your review - we are delighted you had such a happy stay in Lui Cottage especially as you had the wonderful Stanley with you to enjoy the lovely walks around the cottage and Loch Lomond area. We hope you had a wonderful onward holiday from here and have returned home with fun memories of your time in Scotland.
Laid back time at Lui Cottage
Was a bit worried about finding the cottage as its quite a bit up an un-tarred road but we followed the directions that Claire sent us and found it first time. The cottage is ideal for couples, and the location is perfect if you enjoy walking. It’s a 45 min to an hours walk to into Balloch. We walked in for the Highland games that just happened to be on that weekend. We had our dog Maya with us and she enjoyed the walks & meeting the Lopez who was a very playful and friendly we thing. The cottage was always nice to come back to after a long walk. Perfect for sitting out and enjoying a glass of something cool while watching the sun go down.
Thank you for your review. We are delighted you all had such a happy weekend in Lui Cottage. The weather couldn't have been more obliging which meant lovely walks with Maya from the cottage without having to get in your car. The Balloch Highland Games is always a highlight for the Loch Lomond area so it was great you could amble down the road and enjoy the event. It was a pleasure having you to stay - thank you for choosing Lui Cottage. Paws up to Maya from Lopez!
We stayed here for first time last week for 4 nights on our honeymoon .
We loved it very quiet, relaxing and close enough to get to places in car or we even went for walks .
Claire and husband we very nice and helpful definitely will return 😊�
Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having you to stay - thank you for choosing Lui Cottage for your honeymoon. You made the most of your time here and were able to take advantage of the gorgeous weather and all that the wonderful Loch Lomond area has to offer. We are delighted you've returned home with happy memories of your time here - thank you again for staying with us.
The 18th century Lorn Mill is in the heart of the Loch Lomond National Park. Tucked away down a wooded drive the property is set within its own 10 acres in a private country estate overlooking Loch Lomond. Enjoy peaceful walks with outstanding scenery straight from you cottage - the magnificent mountain backdrop with Ben Lomond and the Loch's beautiful islands will be a lasting memory. Primroses, bluebells, jewel coloured heathers, golden autumn leaves and crisp frosty woodland trails - in all seasons the local walks from the Lorn Mill are a joy. Have fun on the private tennis court, the sheep and cows will be your audience, or stroll down to the lochside beach with a picnic. Relax with a long drink watching the many stunning sunsets settle over the mountains.
The local train in Balloch will whisk you into Glasgow, Edinburgh and beyond. Trains from nearby Helensburgh will take you up to Mallaig, near Skye, following one of the the most spectacular routes through Scotland. Harry Potter has done this journey many times over the iconic bridge north of Fort William!
Play golf on the abundant municipal courses nearby or book a round in one of the more famous clubs. Aberfoyle Golf Course will test your skills just as well as Gleneagles or The Carrick. Another popular day out is to catch the ferry to the Isle of Bute or Arran for 18 holes.
Visit the local whisky distilleries in nearby Dumgoyne or Auchentoshan- samples always generously waiting for your tasting.
Hire bicycles in Balloch or Drymen and follow the beautiful routes through the Queen Elizabeth Forest or just straight from your cottage. Climb the many munroes within an hours drive from the cottage, Ben Lomond being the nearest 15 miles away. The Connich Hill at Balmaha is just as good a climb with 2 rewards - a fantastic view of Loch Lomond from the top and a welcoming pub at the bottom!
A visit to Stirling Castle is always a fun day out and the Wallace Monument too. Edinburgh has so much to offer - the castle, wonderful art galleries and museums and oddles of Scottish history! Shopping in both Edinburgh and Glasgow is always tempting as are the many top class restaurants and bars.
There is so much to see and do whilst staying at The Lorn Mill - come and see for yourselves! We are flexible with booking, minimum stay 3 nights, prices £225- £595. One dog is allowed at a rate of £10 per day. We look forward to welcoming you.
