Stayed here for 3 nights in November and had a great time. The house is absolutely gorgeous and very tastefully decorated. As we had stayed previously when we got married in Oban last year we were given a bottle of prosecco on ice as a welcome back from Graeme.....a very nice touch! The place is very clean and welcoming and... More

Huge room with a lovely bathroom and even a teddy bear on the bed!! Breakfast was delicious and the owner was very helpful. The accommodation was within easy walking distance of the town centre and opposite the sea front.

Love everything about Glenburnie and get withdrawal symptoms when I'm away too long! The location is stunning, the breakfast is exceptional (particularly after a run of "full Scottish breakfasts"!) and Graeme and his staff make you feel so welcome. First class!
