The Ardtorna is a 5-star guest house set in a beautiful location in western Scotland. The owners ensure a personal touch throughout from a bespoke breakfast menu to complimentary whisky night caps. Bedrooms are very clean and of the highest decorative standards. This is a truly great place to stay if visiting the west of Scotland.

The Ardtorna B&B is situated in a great place, with lovely scenery. The bedrooms have large windows facing a fantastic view of Loch Creran. We were warmly greeted on arrival by Karen and shown around, and we were very impressed with the entire setup. An emphasis is put on the comfort of their guests. We stayed in the Ardmaddy room...

We recently spent four nights at Ardtorna and it is easy to see why it is an award winner. The King sized bed was the most comfortable we've slept in anywhere ( perhaps with the exception of our own). Throughout there is an attention to detail and an emphasis on comfort and quality. Sean and Karen are pleased to advise... More

What a great location , view and lovely hosts. This place was made for unwinding and such attention to detail made for a delightful stay. This place is well worthy of its 5 star status but will make other B and Bs pale in comparison!!

Our 3rd trip to Ardtorna and it just gets better and better. Karen and Sean are wonderful hosts and it was such a lovely evening to sit outside drinking wine and eating our nibbles. So relaxing. We have now stayed in 3 of the 4 rooms so will be back to try the last!
