We stayed one night on our trip. We had one of the front rooms and the view of the sea was lovely. Nice clean room, the walk up to the B&B was very well cared for, with pot plants. Louise looked after us well, and booked the Starfish restaurant for us - not much happening in the village of Tarbet,... More

Just one night on our return to germany we had a wonderful stay at Dunivaig B&B. A recommendation with booking for a very good dinner and a full scottish breakfast. Test the skippers - my secret tip. The B&B is perfect to stay before or after a trip to Islay. Just 15 min to the fery (with a car). A... More

This B&B is just the perfect place to stay before you go to Islay: close to the ferry (10 min by car), very friendly and helpful owners, delicious breakfast, comfortable beds as well as cozy and clean rooms. Great stay for a decent price, we would definitely go there again.

We stayed here en route to Kennacraig for the early ferry. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The view out across the loch is fantastic, and in the morning I had possibly the nicest cooked breakfast I've had. Highly recommended ( even though its taken me a while to get round to doing that).

We had a very short, but wonderful stay at this excellent B&B. (I was a little surprised to see it was given 3 stars, not 4 by the B&B board.) It was easily comparable to the 4 star B&Bs we stayed at. Our room was spacious and incredibly comfortable with stunning views over Loch Fyne. Peter and Louise gave excellent... More

Louise and Peter are delighted that you have compared our bed and breakfast establishment to that of a 4 star accommodation. Our 2 ensuite rooms are quite spacious with a seating area, too. From the room windows our guests often have views of the various sea birds, such as the gannets diving for fish. If you are very lucky you... More

There is nothing I would criticize about this B&B. Lovely home, clean room, comfortable bed, bathroom fine... Breakfast was served piping hot with fluffy scrambled eggs and abundant haggis - perfect! Owners are very friendly and helpful and its going to be my " regular" place whenever I'm in Tarbert. Bravo on all counts.

This B&B is well situated for the ferry. There is one two minutes away for the closer island, and about a 15 minute drive to Kennacraig ferry which goes to (Arran or Islay/Jura). The view from the room is spectacular and I think this is one of the best parts of this B&B. Unforunately, I would have to say that... More

We travelled as 2 couples and stayed one night. The location is excellent being a short walk from the village and having amazing views over the loch. The 2 rooms we had overlooked the loch and,of the 2, the one with the king- size bed was the best with double aspect views. The family room only had a standard double... More
