We arrived here on our first night in Scotland after a rather scary drive on the super-narrow roads from Loch Lomond (probably somewhat less scary if you are used to driving on the left side of the road!). The innkeeper welcomed us and brought us glasses of wine and caramel fudge. We stayed in the family room, which was beautiful... More

Well placed and ample parking. We were met by Billy who showed us to our room. When I put finishing touches in the title I mean:- glasses of wine, beautiful fudge, hot flannels, bath robes, tea cakes and many more. The room was a good size and very comfortable and well presented. The reason I gave 4 instead of 5... More

Grove House was our very first experience with B&B and we loved it. It was a beautiful B&B in Connel, a quiet little town only 15 minutes away from Oban. The house itself was lovely, beautifully decorated inside. The dining and living room were on the lower floor with a sunroom. They were all comfortable areas that guests can make... More

We stayed 2 nights and were very impressed. They were very welcoming and friendly with helpful suggestions. Nice room, a bit small but comfortable. Excellent breakfast. A short drive to Oban and probably better off being away from the bustle of Oban
