“Collaig Byre Cottage”
Reviewed 29 April 2014

Have just returned from one week at Collaig Byre self catering. We have stayed at many UK cottages but this is the icing on the cake. Very high standard accommodation, friendly owners & immaculate presentation. Suitable for couples & families, magnificent location, superb wifi. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: No fitness centre required; plenty of local activity for fitness.

We stayed here in August 2013 and what an amazing stay. The place and surroundings were beautiful. The room was spotless and felt like it was brand spanking new. Julie was a great host and so accommodating, willing to go that extra mile. Worth every penny

Would definitely recommend and would love to come and stay here again. It made our trip to Scotland so amazing and memorable.

Stayed only one night but will return as this b&b was sheer luxury. Very warm welcome from Julie and her lovely home baking! Our room was the super king room and was beautifully decorated, clean, and very comfy. Gluten free diet accommodated.

We stayed here for one night in late August.

It's a little out of the way but well worth the effort. Our room was great with amazing views over the loch. The welcome was lovely and homely. The breakfast was the best we'd ever had, partly due to the fact we knew they raise their own pigs and the eggs were laid just outside the front door.

A beautiful place and a great B&B. It felt very much like being invited into someone's home.

Hi Tony,
Many thanks for your review we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay at Collaig House and taking the time to write a review,I know from our conversation that you inadvertently clicked onto the one star rather than the five star you intended to, I know you have tried to recall the review but the system does not allow this action but I am sure when people read your review it will be clear this star click was an error and in no way reflected the standard of service provided at Collaig.

Best Wishes to you both
Julie and jamie

I would give Julie 5 plus as she saved us from a potentially disastrous short break. The Hotel we booked into let us down at the last minute, when we were one hour away from Oban! The hotel overbooked so we were desperately phoning around for accommodation at a very busy time due to the wonderful, rare, good weather. Julie was travelling home from Glasgow and had her own plans for the day but she didn't hesitate to accept our booking.
The house is beautiful and the service excellent. You will enjoy a great breakfast in a tranquil setting watching and listening to the various birds who also enjoy Julie's Hospitality! Julie's local knowledge helped us plan our days to get the most out of our short break. Would definitely book here again.

Room Tip: Julie let us choose which room we used. Both were available as she hadn't planned having guests...

This review is for the self-catering accommodation, Collaig Byre. We were a party of 2 physically (not mentally) mature couples. It was a dark and stormy night in November 2011, it was uber dark, the road seemed never ending and it was raining sideways. What better welcome then was to be greeted with a roaring fire and a smiling face and that set the scene for the week. The accommodation is modern, stylish, roomy, perfectly located with everything you would need for a great home from home experience. I cannot find one negative to say about this place, apart from we didn't try the breakfast, but that was our own fault and regretted mistake! The only way to rectify this is to return, which we will.

It is off the beaten track, but so is everything in Scotland, that's why people go. The scenery, the wildlife, the moss growing on the trees, it's a little piece of heaven. I left a huge chunk of my heart there. Without doubt Collaig Byre has been one of the best places I have ever stayed in, from it's quality linens, even down to the locally produced hand soap. No detail has been left out! 5* in every respect. Julie is exceptional, only wish we had more time.

I spent a lot of time blogging about this trip. For more area info and pics visit:

Go, you won't be disappointed!

What a fantastic find Collaig House is. Julie and Jamie are a friendly welcoming couple, they made you feel you had known them for years.The accomodation is spotlessly clean and comfortable. We had arranged to have our evening meals there and the food was excellent. There was plenty choice for breakfast all freshly cooked to order. The eggs came from their own hens !. We were welcomed back from our day out cycling with freshly baked scones with jam and cream and a pot of tea which we enjoyed,sitting on the patio overlooking beautiful Loch Awe.
The house is in a quiet country location with fantastic views .
I would recommend this B&B to anyone to appreciates first class service !.
