This B&B exceeded our expectations. I was decorated nicely yet still "homey", and was very clean. It actually felt like we were staying at someone's upscale home without imposing on them.
We needed a family room since my wife and I had our son with us, and the room we were given had a bunk-bed in addition to the queen bed but it was large enough so we didn't feel cramped. Lucky for us it also has a great view of Goatfell mountain.
There are plenty of hang-out areas like the front patio and the bar/living room, again we felt at home and could really relax. A plus is that the other guests we encountered were more interested in mingling and having a conversation rather than holing themselves up in their room watching T.V.
Breakfast was a choice of the full Scottish fry or light continental (or both), and delicious.
We encountered only one minor problem - and it had nothing to do with the B&B itself. We were on foot (by choice) and the distance from the ferry to the Glenartrney is long enough to warrant taking a taxi (bus service is infrequent) if you're carrying luggage. This wasn't an issue until the last day when we needed to catch the early ferry and it was raining, but we couldn't find any taxis to come to the B&B. Perhaps the landlords could make arrangements with a local taxi to be on alert for guests who may need transportation between the B&B and the ferry.
Overall, a wonderful place to stay. We'll be back to Arran one day and we know where we'll be staying.
