My wife and I stayed here during a five day tour of the Highlands and stayed here the night before we crossed by Ferry over to the Isle of Skye. This was the first B&B I had stayed in during my trip to Scotland. Our room was spotless, the beds comfortable, and the breakfast prepared in the morning was delicious.... More

Small room and very small ensuite. Breakfast cooked well and choices available. Although situated in a very old property it was very clean and comfortable and well situated. Ideal place to stay if going to Mull and Iona but don't expect a view as situated on a main road in Oban Hosts helpful with local information which is very handy.

When we arrived at Ulva having driven from Carlisle we were devastated to find that the voucher group had not sent them confirmation of our booking. Martha and her husband pulled out all the stops to help us and in the end for the first night we were in the garden room and the following 2 used their families bungalow.... More

This B&B was perfect. They have free parking and are within walking distance to everything you want to see in Oban! The proprietor was kind enough to give us a short cut into town, and provide us with ideas of what to see and do. Breakfast was delicious and everyone was so friendly. The room provided everything we could have... More
