After a hard search in the zone of Oban, on the web we found this B & B due to its characteristics and the friendliness of its owner Margaret Adams . It was our choice to spend a night. The first thing to say is that it was a success, for the kindness of the staff (both Margaret and her husband David) and for services received. Of the 3 bedrooms (all with their own bathroom) all were on the top floor: quiet, simple and well equipped. The room and the house in general was more than clean, which for us is very important when traveling with a child. Another aspect of this property is the breakfast, varied and with good quality, which rounded off a lovely stay. Much more than recommended, near Oban but in a slightly quieter location, next to a beautiful beach, with a price more than recommended. We are definitely in a B & B but the impression given, for the quality we received, it felt like being in a hotel.
Very well situated to walk everywhere. In the restaurant we saw a Scottish film, which was very scary and not only for the booming voice, they got upset every time we joined the tables to sit together and we disorganized them. THe rooms are small but clean and cozy.
