“Stunning view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2012

Only a few minutes out the town, quite with stunning view. We enjoyed our stay at Dunivaig. Very friendly service, nice and clean rooms and excellent Scotish Breakfast. Perfect place to stay before or after Islay.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2012

We recently stayed at Dunivaig as our friends were being married at nearby Crear. With many of the wedding guests taking over Tarbert, we found ourselves at Dunivaig which was around a 15 minute walk from Tarbet's main street (or a 2 minute drive).
With its turrets and gothic-style building, it certainly casts an dramatic impression with one of the best positions overlooking the water. We were greeted by Louise who was both friendly and helpful. I have stayed in many B&Bs in my trips around Scotland and I must say that the room at Dunivaig was really superb. The view from the window was stunning - we felt as though we were right on the water and could see the gannets diving into the depths from our bed! The bedroom was large with a sofa, full length mirror (plenty of room for us both getting ready for the wedding) and also an en-suite shower room. It was spacious and scrupulously clean. We stayed 2 nights and had Scottish cooked breakfast both mornings which was lovely, well-cooked and filling. I'd thoroughly recommend Dunivaig to anyone visiting Tarbet, perhaps as a stop off en-route to the islands. The scenery is spectacular, the service at Dunivaig is very pleasant and great value for money, and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. Some may feel the distance from the main street is a down side, however if you like peace and quiet it will add to its charm.
Overall, a very find B&B and I would stay again, should I be travelling in the area.

Room Tip: Pick the double at the front - panoramic views of the loch from the picture window

Room was very comfortable and had an amazing view over the water and hills. Breakfast was good. Free parking just across the road. Tarbert is a town worth visiting. Especially make sure to walk up to Tarbert Castle. It's free and has wonderful views. There are interesting hiking trails around it also.

Great topfurnished rooms in a beautiful house close to the sea, excellent friendly service, Louise helped us to find a nice room with another B & B the other night when she was fully booked, told us about where to eat, great breakfast, fresh fruit, smoked kipper, crossiants and much more.


Can really recommend The Dunivaig to everyone if you are going to Tarbert! And Tarbert is a very nice little fishing village worth a visit!
