The Moorings B&B was a very good recommendation we received from friends. We spent 3 nights in this place at room no. 3. Everything was perfect. The shower and the wash-bowl in the bedroom were new and Andrew the owner invested a lot in lighting equipment. Never seen something similar in a B&B. We very much enjoyed the full Scottish... More

The Moorings is outstanding for comfort, cleanness and food. No doubt there are other places in the area with very high standards - so what makes The Moorings stand out from the crowd? This was our second stay at Andrew's. Once again, the Moorings was the highlight of our holiday. The scenery in the Argyle Peninsular was breathtaking with fantastic... More

This bed and breakfast was the very best of our 23 days in Scotland! The host Andrew is charming, super funny, an amazing cook and very helpful. We actually miss him a lot, it was like leaving a special friend. Andrew suggested we walk up the hill from his backyard to view the ruins of a castle built by Robert... More

Stayed here for one night on a solo cycle trip. My room (no4) appears to be the small en suite double room advertised on the website. It really wouldn't pass muster as a double room and the en suite is unbelievably small. It was very clean and comfortable, if a little cramped. Inside, no surface has been left uncovered with...

Very sorry to hear you were unsatisfied with both your stay and your breakfast. Andrew prides himself on providing a relaxing comfortable stay. The room which you were booked into Room 4, although has a small double bed in, it is actually our Single Room and only suitable for one person due to its size. We are also very sorry... More
