Dunchraigaig House
Ranked #1 of 3 Kilmartin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 April 2014

There is nothing I can say by way of a fault. The rooms were lovely - we had the Lilac Room which was a great size, with a huge bathroom and our kids (15 & 12) had the Blue Room which was twin bedded and perfect for them. Spotlessly clean and nicely furnished, with a view over the standing stones and Jura in the distance.

Breakfasts were top quality - you order the night before on a checklist if you want anything cooked - can recommend it all, but the eggs from their own flock of chickens take quite some beating!

Lynn and Cameron were very good hosts - the kids collected eggs from the hens and fed them and my son was delighted to see a red squirrel as a regular visitor. Sadly the pine marten seemed to choose whenever we were out to visit.

B&B is also well stocked with planned out walks, trips, restaurant menus which was really helpful. The walk up the Avich Falls past Loch Awe was absolutely beautiful. All in all, very highly recommended although you definitely need a car to get around.

Thank you for your review - we loved having you all here. The hens missed all of the attention when you left! We hope that you all have happy memories that will stay with you for a long time and that next time you get caught in a shower you will remember it is nothing to the soaking that you got on the boat trip when you went through the whirlpool!! Would love to see you all again.

We had a lovely stay with Cameron and Lynn who were excellent hosts in their attendance, breakfast quality, supply of local information and recommendations. The house was clean, warm and comfortable and the chance of seeing wild life from the windows added to the pleasure of being there. While beautifully furnished our room was small and may not suit everyone (though en suite facilities spacious).
As just over a mile to the village of Kilmartin it was a good location to explore this interesting historic area.
We would certainly recommend Dunchraigaig House and look forward to return as 3 nights was not enough time to enjoy this magical area.

Stayed over Good Friday through to the Sunday. We found the B&B very clean and the breakfast excellent. Cameron and Lynn are great hosts and exceptionally polite and welcoming. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for them and they are a very good source of information and recommendations. Definitely recommend and no doubt go back..

Many thanks again to Lynn and Cameron for making us feel as welcome as always. Our 4th or 5th stay here and it's impossible to fault the warm welcome, wonderful food and idyllic location. A firm favourite which I recommend unreservedly.

A wonderful B&B. I stayed two nights whilst attending a course nearby. All areas of the house are spotless, warm and cozy. The breakfast was of the highest quality with fresh fruit, lovely porridge and eggs from the hens you can see whilst eating your breakfast. The hosts were very friendly and of course to see a Pine Marten so close up was possibly a once in a lifetime experience.
I cannot recommend this B&B enough. I can't imagine anyone being disappointed by any element of a stay here.

Another wonderful stay at Dunchraigaig.
Once again Lynne and Cameron surpassed themselves with great hospitality, wonderful food and beautiful scenery.
Visited Crinan, Tarbert, Inverary and Kintyre. Also sailed to Colonsay past Mull, Scarba, Jura and Islay, taking in the most beautiful scenery in the world . . . and it didn't rain! what more can you ask for.
We can't wait for our next trip.

A lovely place for a short break to view and visit the many historic sites surrounding this area, excellent hospitality and food and to see the pine martins that visit the bird table is an added bonus,well worth a visit.

Room Tip: we had the twin room which had an excellent view of the standing stones and the isle of jura
