First of all I want to emphasize, that this is my first Tripadvisor review and I usually don’t do reviews. But after our experience in the Sgeir Mhaol Guest House I felt I need to do it to prevent others having the same one. I was doing a trip to Scotland with a friend and I started planning the trip...

I had a great stay at the Sgeir Mhaol, Ishbell (the owner) was friendly and very accommodating! As I was on placement, I stayed for 5 weeks and experienced continual high standards. My room was furnished very well with plenty of fresh towels, tea and coffee supplies and fruit. Ishbell could not have done more to ensure that I had... More

Ishbel welcomed me and my welsh collie at the start and finish of my trip to the Isles of Coll and Tiree. Very early leaving the first morning, it was a bonus not to be offered breakfast and this was reflected in the very reasonable price for my double ensuite complete with bowl of fruit. The same welcome awaited me... More

Well what can I say ? What a friendly and lovely person the owner is (Ishbell). After a 10 hour car journey this was a welcome sight, The room was lovely, clean and fresh. As normal with the tea, coffee and biscuits but a nice touch was the fruit in the room. My dog was made to feel welcome too.... More

Easy to find, as right next to a set of traffic lights. People were very nice. Room was comfortable. No cooked breakfast, but oodles of boiled eggs, fruit and cereals. Breakfast room very small and a little cramped. My sheets were heavily creased, and I asked the lady if the bed had been changed yet. Boy, wish I hadn't, as... More

The only down side was i started work at 8 and breakfast starts at this time, however I was offered cereal in my room. Very reasonably priced and located 5 minutes walk from... More

Had a great stay at Sgeir Mhaol, and booked last minute on passing through Oban. Very friendly owner, who made us feel more than welcome, even offered breakfast despite not being up early enough.

Typical bed and breakfast establishment as far as the room and the owner were concerned. The quirkiness is in the location of the driveway which is right at the traffic lights and is fine once you've established where it is. The other quirk is that it is not a cooked breakfast like you get in most B&B's. Now, that came... More
