I could excuse the dated furniture and furnishings at Ardness House. I could excuse the tight bathroom space in my room, which would have required a taller person to sit on the toilet sideways. I could excuse the rationing of bath soap to one tiny, tiny sample tube. I could laugh and excuse how she served a single egg for... More

Ardness House is a Bed & Breakfast, not hotel. Very nice accommodations. We were a party of 4..2 bedrooms both with en-suite showers. Gillian was very pleasant and informative of where best to find a meal, since we didn't arrive until 8:30 in the evening. She recommended The Keel Row and we were not disappointed. On our return from dinner,... More

Gillian was the most wonderful hostess to seven of us bikers she was very helpful arranging us ferry,s and boat trips for us during our two days on Mull. Breakfast was absolutely fantastic and her porridge is the best in Scotland! (We conducted a survey on our two week tour of Scotland) I will most certainly visit again!

Our party of three, including our friend from Australia, stayed with Gillian at Arness House in May. The hospitality was second to none, the food was fantastic, especially the eggs from Gillian's hens and the lamb from the farm. The rooms were comfortable and the views exceptional. Ardness House is the ideal spot from which to explore the Isle of... More

Me, my wife and our two daughters staid in Ardness House for two nights. You could have not asked for a nicer place or a more friendly and welcoming hostess. Gillian ensured that we felt home the whole time, from a friendly fire in the living room and a nice cup of tea when we arrived to a wonderful breakfast... More

We stayed here as a family, my mother, brother, sister in law, my husband and our daughter at the beginning of May. Such a friendly, welcoming family who run the B&B on top of a full time working farm. Gillian is such a lovely warm person, and made us all feel very welcome to her home. Beautiful setting, wonderful hosts,... More

We happened on Ardness House by chance when I got my dates wrong on another accommodation. It's a working farm as well as a B&B but it's warm and friendly and the food and accommodation is just great. You can have an evening meal there which is good home cooking using local ingredients (we had lamb shank, Gillian gave up... More

It was a real treat to stay at Ardness House. My room was absolutely spotless, as was the B&B itself. Parking was easy and the location couldn't have been better. Gillian is such a wonderful hostess and we enjoyed her company in the lounge, where she had a lovely fire going for us. Breakfasts were amazing--locally produced meats and fresh... More

What a happy accident to end up at Ardness House. Home of the extraordinary Gillian, who is welcoming, funny, knowledgeable and makes an incredible Scottish breakfast to order! The room was conveniently and beautifully situated outside of Bunessan and Fionnphort (access to Iona). The rooms were simple and comfortable, the bathroom modern, the shower AMAZING. But the piece de resistance... More
