We found Ardtorna on TripAdvisor and booked it based on photos and reviews - like most everyone. Well, it was better than expected. The location (12 miles from Oban) made for an easy trip in to town, but also guaranteed spectacular views and sunsets away from the hustle and bustle of Oban. The property has four elegant rooms decorated in... More

We had 3 very pleasant nights and scrumptious breakfasts at Ardtorna where we could not fault anything, even the free whisky was superb. We would recommend Ardtorna to anyone passing looking for somewhere that little bit special.

A lot of thought has gone into Artorna. The rooms are very neat and the breakfast is outstanding. A good position, friendly hosts; very clean, tidy, with modern fittings and organised set-up. Perfect for a base from which to explore this part of western Scotland. Oh and very good "wheaten" bread......
