It was our second stay at Avoncraig last August. I've experienced a lot of b&b's in that are, but never anything that great! Fiona's hospitality simply remains unsurpassed! We can't think of any rating other than "excellent"! Don't forget to try her home made jams,... Marvellous setting, right next to McCaig's Tower. We can't wait staying there again! Fiona, you're...

We had two delightful nights at Avoncraig. The bedroom and bathroom were very nice, and as the house is single storey, no stairs to navigate with bags. The view is superb and it would have been easy to tarry there all morning watching the activity in the port. Fiona does a great breakfast with a wonderful array of home cooked...

We felt instantly welcome upon our arrival at Avoncraig! The facilities were nothing short of superb with lovely views over Oban Bay. Fiona and Stuart were fantastic hosts and made us feel like part of the family. We would thoroughly recommend Fiona's cooked breakfast!

We only stayed with Fiona at Avoncraig for one night but were made to feel welcome straight away. We had the double room at the front of the house which has a great view over the harbour and is ideal for ferry watching. The room was comfortable and equipped to a very high standard. Breakfast was delicious and we particularly...

Fiona made us very welcome at very short notice because of cancellation of ferry due to bad weather. Excellent accommodation, comfy bed, beautiful view out over Oban and near to the McCaig Tower. As the heading implies - look no further for superb porridge, the best we have tasted on our trips through Scotland and the islands! The breakfast choice...

We spent 2 nights in Oban en route to Mull for a short break. Fiona welcomed us to Avoncraig and had provided spot on directions to the b&b which was just as well as it's off the beaten track but worth it for the magnificent views over Oban and Loch Linnhe. Avoncraig is a nice clean b&b and very convenient...

Fiona is a welcoming host who takes pride in offering a high quality (and filling) breakfast and a very comfortable room with a great view. Watching the lights come on in Oban and the ferries come and go was a lovely way to spend a little time gazing out of our window. Fiona's driving directions were spot on to help...

Thank you very much for your kind comments. I'm glad you enjoyed the breakfast and view. I tried hard to make my driving directions foolproof and hardly anyone gets lost now- glad you found the directions helpful. Saying you would return here really says it all, so thanks for that. Fiona
