We were lucky to get the family room at the front of the house with spectacular views over the picturesque harbour which is what Tarbert is renowned for. Andrew's breakfast is a triumph - couldn't manage lunch! As a guest house, everything was immaculate and previous comments about the comfortable beds are spot on - didn't really want to get... More

We, myself, husband, daughter and son-in-law recently had an overnight at The Moorings. We are no strangers to Tarbert but this was our first visit to Andrew's establishment. Why did we leave it so long? Andrew, our stay was first class - five star didn't come close. So clean, so comfortable and so quirky. We loved it. The breakfast was... More

We have just returned from a couple of days in Tarbert, Loch Fyne where we had the pleasure of staying at The Moorings. This has to be the friendliest, cleanest B&B we have ever stayed in. We've stayed in four star hotels which didn't even come close to the standards Andrew provides. We had the Double room which has the... More

My hubby and I ended up staying here for one night a couple of weeks ago when the Ferry to Islay was cancelled due to the weather on the Sunday afternoon. At a loss to know where we could stay, I called in at the Tourist Information in Tarbert, and the assistant was promptly on the phone to Andrew and... More

To be honest, my son and I never had Tarbert on our agenda for this trip. But a storm brought us there and we found way better than just shelter at The Moorings. Andrew is amongst the best hosts you could wish for to have. He is extraordinarily friendly and obviously loves what he does ... being a host. Andrew... More

As a mature couple on a cycling honeymoon to Scotland, we stayed in 15 different places in August 2104. Unfortunately I made the mistake of booking the wrong Tarbert and we ended up at 6pm about 70 miles away in the Outer Hebrides! Obviously embarrassed and very apologetic I telephoned Andrew to let him know we were unable to stay... More

We were on a tour leading from Oban to Arran Island and chose Tarbert as a stop over. After searching all the B&B's we could find in this area we decided on The Moorings. What a great choice we made, very convenient to the village but on a quiet street with great views of the bay and Tarbert Castle out... More

cannot praise highly enough..quality at a great price..good breakfat. location and rooms are spotless and comfortable and have style if you travel by car from wemyss bay to rothesay then round to tighnabruich, portavadie and across to tarbert, you have the highlands and islands within two hours of Glasgow and the moorings is perfect for a stay or short break

A friend and myself went on a week trip to Campbeltown and Islay. We stayed one night in The Moorings. Excellent B&B. It has a great, friendly atmosphere. The host is very nice guy and the location is just beautiful and perfect. The room (and the house) was immaculate. Best WiFi of all B&Bs. If you are going - this... More

Stayed last night and had a beautiful and spotlessly clean room (as is the rest of the house). Slept really well in the best comfy bed ever and ate a delicious breakfast. Andrew is definitely the host with the most, friendly, kind and considerate, could not ask for better. I will admit to a certain amount of kitchen envy as... More
