We had a twin room at the front and it had a good view of the harbour - and a more beautiful harbour would be hard to find. The room was smallish with a bathroom across the hall. But the price was good and the breakfast filling.

Fantastic B&B at a Fantastic price. The lady(I'm sorry I didn't ask your name) was very accommodating and helpful. The rooms were lovely and views over the harbour much appreciated. We ate in the restaurant and although there wasn't a huge choice, what we had was excellent. The choice of beers & whisky was also spot on. Highly recommended and... More

We stayed here for one night on the beginning of our road trip round Scotland. The rooms were clean and functional. The breakfast was also good. We ate in the bistro downstairs that night. I had the cheese/chilli bread starter. It was way too spicy and made me feel quite ill. I ordered the scallop and chorizo special for my... More

Stopped only 1 night, what a pity, what great place, Although John & Kristen weren't able to be there to meet us they gave us instructions about getting the key and we let ourselves in. Our room had great harbour views, lovely furniture and was very clean and tidy. Breakfast was lovely and fresh followed by some interesting conversation with... More

We have just spent a couple lovely days in Tarbert on Loch Fyne staying at Struan House with John & Kristen Scott. The accomodation is superb set right on the harbour side. Thus is a fantastic base to tour the beautiful peninsula and the hosts will give great advice and tips on how to maximise your stay. Struan House incorporates... More

Ideal for a stop-over en route to/from Islay or Campbeltown. This is probably one of the best BB in the area, clean and well kept rooms. Easy parking, no traffic wardens in sight. The bistro is highly recommended, "best food in town" with inovative and tasty fusion style seafood dishes.

We stopped in Tarbert on our way to Islay. We were only there for one night. Struan House was a very good choice - we wish we could have stayed longer. The hosts were very kind and friendly. The food was delicious for breakfast. And we had dinner there as well - wonderful pasta dish with scallops and chorizo -... More

We very much enjoyed our stay at Struan House. A warm welcome and comfort and very tasty and varied breakfasts as well. The restaurant downstairs has delicious food and is very good value (with substantial portions) and John and Kristen are very interesting folk. Definitely 5 star plus.

Food is excellent in the bistro - don't wait until your last night to try it as we did, because you'll regret it!! Gluten-free options are available including bread at breakfast if you ask in advance and pizzas and pastas for the bistro. The gluten-free seafood pizza was blindingly good. We were lucky to get the view out over Tarbert... More

Lovely B&B in this cosy harbour village. Our room was lovely - the Arran. Great view over the little fishing boats in the harbour. Excellent hosts and the kippers at breakfast were delicious, the bistro is gorgeous and lots of stylish touches. Such a pity we weren't able to eat dinner there - but next time we most certainly will.... More
