Stayed for one night last week - could quite happily have stayed for a much longer break. Les and Issy were very friendly and welcoming without being obtrusive. The room was comfortable and warm, the lounge was delightful, and the breakfast lovely. Also it is in an excellent location - spectacular view of Cruachan over the loch. No midges yet...

Beautiful peaceful location.Les & Issy the perfect hosts Very friendly & accomodating. Spotlessly clean, & the food was excellent. Close to two restaurants about two miles along the country lane overlooking the loch. If ever in the vicinity again would make this the perfect choice without any hesitation

Excellent B & B in all ways - room, food, location and of course Les and Issy. We have to agree with all the previous comments. Les and Issy were very welcoming and helpful and they do whatever they can to help make your holiday successful and enjoyable, offering lots of tips, advice, leaflets, maps, booklets, etc. Would definitely recommend...

This B&B really does live up to its 5 star rating in every way. It was dog friendly too. We stayed a single night but hope to be regular visitors. It is very centrally located between Oban, Argyll and Fort William, Lochaber. There are many attractions in the surrounding are and it is quietly located with interesting loch views. Can't...

Stayed last week for two nights in Cruachan Bed and Breakfast. Les and Issy (the owners) were lovely. The rooms were spotlessly clean with everything you could ask for. There is also a living/tv room for guests and a separate dining room for breakfast. Plenty to eat for breakfast and again anything you asked for. It is located in a...

Beautiful little B&B in a gorgeous location. My friend and I stayed overnight whilst we explored the surrounding areas. Les and Issy were both very welcoming and accommodating and pointed us in the right direction for places to go. The room was very clean and comfortable and could not be faulted. Ideally we would have liked to have stayed longer...

Had a lovely stay at this quiet bed and breakfast, located about 12 miles away from Oban, on Appin peninsula. I found this accomodation by accident, I was searching for a mountain leader for a guided walk on Glencoe - and both Les and Issy are qualified guides. I booked for a walk and had a lovely day with Les...

“My twin room didn't have an en-suite - but I had sole use of the main bathroom. If an en-suite is important - ask when booking as other rooms do have them.”
