My wife and I recently took a ten day swing through her homeland. We landed and spent a few days in Edinburgh but the headed West to Oban as we were going to head North to Skye and the Highlands but I wanted to visit the distillery there in Oban given my predilection. We stayed a perfect one night stay with our hosts Mark and Suzanne and their beautiful Greystones B&B.
The building is situated on a hill above the harbor and takes terrific advantage with the beautiful views featuring island ferries coming and going. The building itself is a labor of love by the two architect owners who have completely restored this baronial style building with great respect and attention to detail. The stay was restful and quiet but the town center with its harbor waterfront and distillery is a one block downhill walk from Greystones.
Our breakfast was situated in the impeccable dining area. I had the whisky and brown sugar porridge followed by smoke salmon and scramble egg on a muffin with juice and coffee. A great meal to start the day.
Greystones has offsite parking and very easy access. If you're headed to Oban then look up Greystones you will be very pleased you did.
