Wonderful guest house in Oban. The room was clean, comfortable and roomy. Loved the breakfast. The Drummonds are a lovely couple and make their location a place you want to return to again and again. My only regret was we only booked in for one night. Next time, we'll spend more time here.

Certainly can't fault anything about High Cliff - Maureen lives and breathes the place and makes sure everything is perfect. The breakfast had double portions compared to ther B&Bs, so be hungry! If it were my house, I would clear out all the nic-nacs and everything that glitters;-)

We booked into High Cliff for a stay of three nights on the back of the recommendations found on Tripadvisor and I have to say that we were not disappointed. Everything we read was not just accurate but exceeded our expectations. Maureen and Mike really do go out of their way to make guests feel not just welcome but also... More

5 stars plus. Mrs Drummond seems to run this place with the single motive of producing the best B&B anywhere in the world. The breakfast are incredibly good, with fresh fish and an amazing array of delicious fruits and fruit dishes. I was entertained by a TV which emerged from the foot of the bed on pressing a remote control,... More

A pleasant stop over before sailing in the Western Isles. We were very late arriving and, having phoned to say we would be late, the owners very kindly stayed up to greet us. Room small but comfortable and an extremely good breakfast.

This is a wonderful B&B. Maureen is very friendly and helpful. The location could not be better as it is just a short walk into town. Maureen recommended a couple of restaurants and the one we went to, Fish Waterfront, was excellent. Bring an appetite as the breakfasts here are enormous as well as being very good.
