I stayed at this house by chance, after spotting the sign from the road. Situated a couple of miles from Inverary. The owner was friendly, helpful and took my breakfast order for the next day (a range of options, including freshly baked bread!) I was lead to a twin room at the top of the house, which turned out to... More

We booked the two twin rooms for our family of four and it was wonderful! Fiona greeted us warmly and had left a plate of cake and biscuits in case we were hungry. The farm animals were fun (rooster crows at 3:30 pm) and the dogs were very friendly. We would love to go back and stay again!

We had one double room and one twin room for one night, and our stay was wonderful. We have been welcome with a lot of attention, the rooms were nice and the location great. Inveraray is a pretty town to visit.

I can't recommend Claonairigh House highly enough. A gorgeous 18th century house beautifully renovated, every room full of character. Perfect, peaceful location with riverside walks from the house and through the woods to the loch. A warm and friendly welcome from Fiona, complete with home-made muffins and a lovely cooked breakfast in the morning. I loved it so much I... More

I stayed 3 times in Claonairigh House in June 2013 and June 2014 on my way to and back from Islay, so a comfortable stop on the road. It's a great place to stay in the middle of the nature with a very friendly welcome from Fiona and Garret (and the dogs too). I really enjoy my stay and that's... More

We had a wonderful two night stay at Fiona's B&B. It really could not be faulted. She greeted us with a welcome cuppa, which makes all the difference, gave us tips to make our stay in the area better and provided fantastic breakfasts which set us up for the day. We were in the two twin rooms at the top... More

My husband and I spent only one night (unfortunately) at Claonairigh House. We very much enjoyed the hospitality of the landlady. The four-poster bed was very comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. For all those who like a relaxed, friendly and authentically Scottish atmosphere, this is the place to go! We loved it! Anja
