Stayed here for one night last week on our tandem island hopping adventure. Andrew really is the most eccentric and perfect host! He is passionate about his house and it shows in the quality and cleansliness of the accommodation. Andrew's ecclectic taste is evident throughout the premises and this adds to the uniqueness of his B and B experience. A... More

Tarbert is a lovely location and Andrew's B&B just made it all that more special. The house has recently been upgraded and is gorgeous. The rooms are comfortable and have loads of sockets for your electronics. Andrew is a total delight and makes delicious breakfast. Starts with a bowl of berries and some orange juice, followed by your choice of... More

I spent two nights in this very nice location. All is spotless and really you feel it like home. Breakfast is supervalid, Andrew prepares nice dishes following your requests. What to say, it is an ideal location to visit the area. For sure, if we go back there for a holiday, we will know where to go!

We stayed for one night and Andrew, the owner, was very welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. He gave us a great recommendation for dinner. It's a delightful house, very well appointed rooms with everything you would want and the bed was so comfortable. Everything was immaculate. Breakfast was delicious with a good choice on offer. We would definitely... More

The great (and new) rooms, the amazing view, the breakfasts, and the most important thing - the owner (so nice! Always smiling & will try to do anything for you). In addition- in a great location- in the first line of houses from the bay. One of the best B&Bs in Scotland!

Beautiful garden with fascinating and intriguing garden décor. Could not have met a nicer owner than the one from The Moorings along with his three beautiful dogs that have such kind natures.Visit and stay was fantastic. Fully recommend to anyone.

If you ever get to visit Tarbert please stay in The Moorings, the place is so welcoming and very well placed for the ferry and restaurants. The B&B is very clean and nicely finished, Andrew made us feel like we had come home. The room I had was twin bedded with every form of comfort with a breakfast encompassing everything... More

Unique guest house with incredible views and one of the most charming we have stayed in (out of 200 plus in our travels in the UK). Andrew is such a delight. He made us feel very special and offers everything you would want from a top class guest house in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland; warm friendly... More
