A warm, authentic and friendly welcome offers the visitors a pure Scottish hospitality, which is also reflected in the very cultivated rooms and the phenomenal (in qualitative and quantitative aspects) Scottish breakfast – a B & B which leaves nothing to be desired! Dear Barbara - we thank you warmly for all you have done! The five crazy Austrians

Have just spent two days at the Morven Guest House. Absolutely fabulous. Barbara couldn't have been more helpful. She is a lovely lady. Facilities were good and the breakfast was brilliant. Couldn't fault the place at all. Highly recommended. We will be back Barbara. Ian and Andrea Thomson.

Stayed with a family group in February. We occupied 2 of the 3 rooms which proved to be great value for money. The guest house and rooms are very well presented and immaculately clean. Breakfasts are fantastic! Cereals and/or cooked breakfast....will please everyone. Well located, with the coast or hills a short distance away. Would not hesitate to stay again.

We only stayed one night with Mrs MacDonald, but she was extremely kind and helpful. The ensuite room was bright, cheerful and immaculately clean. The choice of items for breakfast was extensive and most unusual for a B&B - as vegans we felt very well catered for. Thank you very much for a pleasant stay.

Her breakfasts are very good too with plenty of choice from an array of carefully chosen cereals, health foods and yoghurts etc. Barbara is also a great cook and I... More

From the moment of stepping inside and being greeted by our host, Barbara, the whole 5 day experience was faultless. Spotlessly clean, comfortable and the breakfast choice AMAZING! Would certainly recommend to anyone.
