Just wanted to say that we had a lovely time at the Kilchrenan House this past August with our family of 4. The family room was very spacious and clean, the breakfast lovely but what left the greatest impression were the terrific innkeepers. We had to leave very early on our last morning for Glasgow and the owner prepared an... More

This lovely B&B has wonderful water views. It's one of a long row of Victorian homes and is decorated very prettily. We had Room 4 on the second floor (to we Americans, first floor to everyone else) and couldn't have been happier with the decor, the view, or the comfort of the room (there are two comfortable chairs for relaxing...

This b&b is the best I've ever been to ( we have travelled around the west highlands this last week and stayed in 5 different b&bs and hotels). The very warm welcome and brilliant breakfast made us very reluctant to leave.

We spent two nights with Colin and Frances in late June and it was delightful. After our first day of driving ( from Edinburgh through Sterling to Oban...on the left) we were ready to relax. Under a brilliant blue sky we enjoyed a spot of whiskey on the front patio overlooking the sparkling bay. This is a great location for... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this B&B - great location, bang infront of the sea. The hosts were very helpful in recommending what to do and where to eat. As a family of 4 we were given a very spacious and comfortable room - which although not sea-facing was just perfect for us. Considering that it did not get dark... More

We arrived in Oban without a booking after 10 days of pre-booked accommodation in other areas of Scotland. We decided that we would take our chances and get a feel for the area first before committing to accommodation. We spent the first night in a guest house in Connel which is close to Oban and which was very good. We... More

We stayed in Frances and Colin's lovely guesthouse for 3 nights. They are cheerful, helpful and capable hosts. Location is perfect for walking anywhere in Oban. Rooms were very nice for a renovated old building (we were on the top floor, and dealt with of sloped ceilings that made the room seem very small!), but still a bit dated with... More

Just returned from a 12 day trip around the west of Scotland during which we stayed at 6 different establishments so we has a range for comparison. We booked our accommodation in March as end July/early August is peak time in Scotland and we were taking our Grandson, so needed a family room. This limited availability and we dismissed any...
