Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at An-Struan. The house is spotless and Gary cooks a super breakfast with delicious porridge. Our room was quiet even though it looks out onto the main road. Very comfy bed. Loved the chicken roaming the garden and providing lovely eggs to enjoy at breakfast. The Hawthorn a superb restaurant is an easy walk meaning you... More

If we would have had the time, we would have spent more in An Struan. It's located near to a beach at Lochnell Bay (just cross the road) and it's a wonderful place to stay. Gary Knowles is very kind and friendly; he's the kind of host with time for his guests. We had tea and coffee in the garden,... More

He brought us a very welcome tray of tea, coffee and fantastic home made scones with jam. Great breakfast with homemade bread, he is a fantastic host. Great... More

Gary met us and welcomed us into his home and showed us to our room which was a nice size with a sitting area and a good en suite shower room including a full range of toiletries together with towels and flannels. After settling in we were offered tea and coffee in the lounge, with home made scones and jam.... More

It is driving distance from the city of Olban. Very clean, great breakfast, great host. He recommended a great hiking trail that gave us spectacular views. Walls were a little thin, but overall a very nice place.

Very nice b&b in a lovely area, Gary is a great host and makes a fantastic breakfast! Oban is a short drive away and there are plenty of lovely walks from the doorstep. Our room was very clean, bed extremely comfortable and there are lots of extras included making it that bit more special. Thanks again Gary and hopefully we'll... More

This neat, fastidiously clean B&B is like staying with your best friends. You will get to know the dogs, the chickens in the yard that supply breakfast and most of all Gary your friendly host. Afterall it's Gary's home and he will make you feel at home. Don't miss the walk down to the Loch across the street. Gary's breakfasts... More

We had an excellent two night stay at an struan, made to feel at home by Gary straight away, breakfast was superb fresh eggs and home made bread was a good start to the day. An struan makes a superb base from which to explore the area on foot or in the car

We definitely felt as if we were guests in someone's home. Whether you like this or not, it is up to you. It was very quiet, lovely birds out of the window, amazing breakfast. All in all, it was a nice stay. However, the walls were very thin. I was woken up by our neighbor snoring. And I am not... More
