“A great place to stay in Oban”
Reviewed May 13, 2008

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Raniven while in Oban for 2 nights in April, 2008. We appreciated the private parking area and close proximity to town. Our room was just fine, and our host, Stuart, was very helpful. They didn't even complain when we almost set off their fire alarm by burning toaster waffles! I would recommend Raniven to anyone spending time in Oban.

Our primary purpose for being in Oban was to take the day trip across the Isle of Mull to Iona, but it turned out that Oban has some sights of its own to share! Check out the distillery, for one. We stayed here about a week into our 3-week tour of Britain, and experienced our first morning of sun in Oban. We celebrated by getting up before breakfast and hiking up the short hill behind the B&B to an unfinished castley structure turned garden. We were rewarded with the place all to ourselves and outstanding views of Oban and the Irish Sea. I highly recommend it if you get a nice morning!
