We stayed in the Blue room which was so lovely - it is very roomy and has added extras to make your stay very comfortable.

Very nice small B&B with lovely hosts who know a lot about the region and have lots of tips for smaller or larger walks/hiking tours. Nice rooms, big bathroom, good breakfast and excellent WLAN. Nice were all the small details (IPad stand and speakers...) If I had to find something somewhat negative ... maybe the squeaking noise of the shower... More

Rest is most definitely assured at Ballig BandB which is very comfortable and convenient for access to all local attractions. I have no hesitation in recommencing Balmillig for an overnight stay or, even better, making it your base for a holiday in this beautiful part of Scotland.
