“Very welcoming and relaxing stay. Excellent.”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

Great B&B only a couple of miles from Fionnphort and the ferry to Iona. A lovely quiet spot on the Southwest corner of the island with a great sea view. Ideal place to escape the noise and bustle of working life. My wife Yvonne and I stayed here on Friday/Saturday night, 6th and 7th September. Breakfasts were hearty and set you up for the day - Stornoway black pudding included! We had evening meals as part of our stay and have to say the food was amazing. Roast beef on the first night and chicken wrapped in bacon the next, all served with vegetables grown in the garden.(I even had a smiley face in my soup one night!) Gillian was a terrific host, very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble for her. From showing us Sea Eagles in the garden, to advising us places to go and see; meanwhile keeping a spotlessly clean B&B and working all hours on the farm, you really have to admire this lady!
We are planning to return again next year and whoever is reading this should do the same. You won't be disappointed!

Ardness House well deserves the top rating for the most friendly, comfortable and convenient B and B on the Ross of Mull. Well done Gillian! You made us very welcome.
The views from the windows are dramatic and the parking very easy, beside the road which leads to the Iona ferry from Bunessan.

Stayed at Ardness House for 3 nights in June. Great location and wonderful host. Would not have done and seen as much on Mull if Gillian had not recommended and arranged for us. Very good breakfast and comfortable room with amazing view.

Puffins are a must see.

Everything about Ardness House is wonderful. Giilian is a welcoming host, who is also an amazing cook. The two dinners we had were excellent home cooked meals. The breakfast was also very good. The room was comfortable and clean. The views are extraordinary. The location is close to the ferry to Iona, as well as to beautiful beaches.We had our meals with very nice people. Gillian;'s enthusiasm for farm life and meeting people creates a warm and friendly atmosphere. We would definitely like to return.

Gillian and her family were eager to accommodate all our needs, helpful with local advice and flexible on what we wanted for breakfast. Fresh eggs from their hens and lamb sausage from their sheep, can't get any better ! The room was clean, warm, with attention to details. We shall certainly go back and recommend it to everyone !

Room Tip: It does not matter if your room is front or back. The view is nice and the traffic non existent ! As...

Ardness is everything that you could wish for in a B&B. We enjoyed the whole experience immensely, from the real Island welcome to the quality of the food - including really excellent evening meals; but tell them in advance if you want dinner!.
Breakfast was first rate too, as was the quality of advice regarding getting across to Iona and also about other boat trips to Staffa and the Treshnish islands. Ardness is part of a working farm and a great example of the sort of diversification necessary for a successful farming business. The B&B side is run by Gillian, a delightful young woman whose enthusiasm and cheerfulness is matched by a phenomenal work rate. Go ahead, book this one, you won't regret it.

Ardness House is very well located for exploring the Ross of Mull. The owner made some very good recommendations for walks and she prepared an excellent dinner for us and a few other guests on the night we stayed . Less than 10 minutes away from the Iona ferry by car.
