After three visits, it’s always a pleasure to drive into the splendid Anchorage's ample driveway at the start of another Highland holiday. The location is superb, looking out across the quiet of Holy Loch to the hills beyond; the rooms are very comfortable - we always try to reserve the first floor rooms (Heron and Gull) which command a splendid...

Had an overnight in The Anchorage and I would thoroughly recommend it. The views are fantastic, the house is beautiful, the rooms are spotless, the breakfast delicious and Richard is charming. If you are looking for accommodation in this area I would definitely book The Anchorage.

We've stayed a whole week at the Anchorage and we've been very positively impressed by the very warm and welcoming service Richard provides. After our warm welcome we've immediately felt at home. The room was nice, clean and tidy. Same goes for the bathroom. Although we didn't have a room with a direct view on the holy loch we could... More

Beautiful location, well appointed room (Heron room), very welcoming owners. Good cycle routes straight from B&B with lots of interesting places to stop along the way - Blair more Gallery & coffee shop and Kilmun Mausoleum just 2 we found. Holy Loch Inn within walking distance for well- earned beer and meal at the end of the day.

Charming B&B overlooking Holy Loch and an abandoned castle in the distance. Our tastefully decorated room with a lovely ensuite, overlooked the water. Very comfy beds. Scrumptious breakfast, great pubs a short walk away, guest parking, no credit cards. Excellent value.

A lovely location overlooking Holy loch. Superb room with an extremely comfortable bed and a good en suite. The breakfast was beautifully cooked with plenty of choice. Our host made us feel very welcome and was very helpful. What more could anyone want.

Really well presented B&B. The proprietors are friendly without being overbearing. Each room is extremely spacious and the decor is very well maintained. As for the breakfast - you're unllikely to want lunch! It's a marvellous location but a bit remote. You'll need to be prepared to drive for your supper but there are plenty of great places to eat...
