The Shepherd's Rest is one of a kind: a shepherd's hut, traditional in design, but incorporating all the comforts you need for a peaceful night's lochside bed and breakfast at any time of year. En suite, double glazing, underfloor heating and an enormous room service breakfast hamper.
-WiFi internet connection: some important conditions of use-
We have Wifi, but it is very slow. If you're coming from a town or city it will be much, much slower than you are used to. This means that while we are happy to share it with you, we must insist you do so respectfully. To ensure you know what you can do with our wifi and what you can't, here are the rules:
1. You don't try to visit any media streaming service like Netflix or YouTube or similar.
2. You don't try to upload lots of data to a cloud backup service or social media. This includes photo albums. If your device automatically backs up to iCloud or a similar service, please switch that function off during your stay.
3. You don't rely on it for any business purpose, including video conferencing and time-sensitive email. Aside from the fact that you're meant to be on holiday, we simply can't give you a warranty that our internet service will always be working and available.
4. You respect the fact that there are parental controls on our wifi that prevent access to certain categories of web content. We will not switch this off for any reason. Sometimes, laptops provided by your employer may have their internet settings configured so as not to be compatible with parental controls. You are responsible for working that out with your IT support desk.
We reserve the right to disconnect any user who isn't using our wifi in a respectful manner. Thankfully we only very rarely have to actually do this and we're sure as a seasoned Airbnb traveller you won't be next!
You will find the wifi network name and password in the guest information folder in the hut.
The hut, and our house, form part of a small residential area, the "Forestry Cottages". We ask all our guests to respect the right of our neighbours, and our own children, to peace and quiet and we don't allow guests to entertain guests of their own in the hut during their stay.

This part of the world is too beautiful not to share. We knew that the moment we first set eyes on it. Even so, we spent years wondering how you go about inviting strangers into your home, until the spring of 2010 when a pair of very wet, tired hikers from Switzerland appeared at our front door asking if they could spend the night in our shed. We took pity on them and gave them our spare bedroom, and laid out the dining room for breakfast the next morning. We've never looked back.
Running a B&B makes for a busy life, as we also have three young children to send out to school. But they love to see our guests enjoying this beautiful place too, and if you visit at a weekend, or during school holidays, you're likely to get a cheerful wave from the living room window as you set off for a day's exploring.
When we're not cooking breakfast or cleaning rooms, we like to get out and enjoy the countryside ourselves. Rowardennan Forest is a beautiful place to walk at any time of the year and in the summer we like to take the path down to the shore. On a sunny summer day the loch is just perfect for a cooling swim. Chris quite likes hillwalking as well, and Ben Lomond is just down the road, but Jenny's not so keen. Her idea of a grand day out is an interesting gift shop and a nice tea room.
