This house has been well thought out and the entrance which leads into the dining area with views beyond is stunning. With clean lines throughout and attention to detail evident in all areas a stay here is a must. I was only sorry we had stopped for one night as Sean produced a first class breakfast - from a choice... More

This is one of the best value B.and B. establishments we have stayed at and would thoroughly recommend Ardtorna to anyone visiting the Oban area. The bedroom was beautifully appointed, the breakfast was great and the little touches of luxury really set this house apart from the rest of the establishments we have stayed in. We are already looking for... More

Clean, modern, with great attention to detail. Great view and fantastic shower! Lovely touches. Breakfast great, as were scones on arrival. The location is somewhat isolated - but worth staying here and driving into Oban for dinner/to spend the day. Worth every penny! Most comfortable stay.

The owners Sean and Karen make you extremely welcome from the moment you walk into this very clean and beautifully furnished B and B. Off the beaten track, all rooms have a super view of the loch.

We stayed at Ardtorna for two nights in August. Sean and Karen are perfect hosts who run an impeccable and friendly establishment. The rooms are extraordinarily well appointed and are surgically clean. The attention given to detail all through the property is remarkable; and there is nothing extra you will want or need. Sean makes one of the best breakfasts... More
