We've stayed at Feorlin with Lorna quite a number of times now and it's our first choice for accommodation when we are in the area. The odd time we couldn't;'t stay with her we stayed at her daughters excellent B&B which I have also reviewed previously). Lorna's welcome is always cheerful and friendly and the accommodation is top rate. Nice... More

Dear Malcolm A Wow1 That's some review you have given me. I will have to try to live up to it! I have to correct one little point though. We no longer have our own hens although I still only use best quality free-range eggs. A large expanse of your boundary fence blew down in a bad gale in February... More

We needed an overnight stay in Oban for 3 people for a morning ferry to Mull. We were recommended Lorna Campbell's B&B and it had a double room with adjoining single room with en-suite. The rooms were perfect for what we needed. Very clean and comfortable and in a quiet location. Lorna was very welcoming and gave us information on... More

What a wonderful B & B. Lorna and Colin could not have been more welcoming. The room was lovely with real homely touches. We stayed for two nights and could hardly wait for breakfast on the second day, Lorna's home made jams are positively delicious! Will definitely stay again.

Lorna made me very welcome. The set up is ideal with two adjoining rooms with a central bathroom. Breakfast is plentiful. Lots of good advice re surrounding area. Couldn't have been better! I will definitely use again when in the area.

Greeted well at the doorway by Lorna on our 2 night stop-over. Two rooms well appointed, clean and comfortable. An excellent situation for my grown up daughter and myself. Ideal location for touring. The breakfast was excellent. The home-made rhubarb and ginger jam was to die for. It is only a pity that we could only spend two nights there.... More

Feorlin is a lovely guest house from where the whole town of Oban can be explored. The room & bathroom was clean and comfortable and Lorna's hospitality warm and genuine. Breakfast is delicious and the array of Lorna's home jams delightful! A little gem worth visiting.

I'm giving this an extra half point :) We only had the fortune of staying at Feorlin 1night as we had a busy itinerary. Lorna greeted us 1st thing in the morning as she allowed us to drop off our bags much before check-in, thank you! Don't be fooled, Lorna might seem like a hard whip to crack but she's... More

We received a lovely, warm genuine welcome at Feorlin. My husband is not in the best of health at the moment so the comfort and kindness shown to us was most appreciated. If we're fortunate enough to visit Oban again I know exactly where we would like to stay!

Best B & B we have stayed in. My husband indulged himself in a massive cooked breakfast each morning and I concentrated on the home made fruit compote which was delicious. We had so much choice that we didn't have any room for lunch. The inter connecting rooms were spotless and the towels lovely and fluffy. We stayed with Lorna... More
