“Great B&B”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

It is driving distance from the city of Olban. Very clean, great breakfast, great host. He recommended a great hiking trail that gave us spectacular views. Walls were a little thin, but overall a very nice place.

Very nice b&b in a lovely area, Gary is a great host and makes a fantastic breakfast!
Oban is a short drive away and there are plenty of lovely walks from the doorstep.
Our room was very clean, bed extremely comfortable and there are lots of extras included making it that bit more special.
Thanks again Gary and hopefully we'll return in the near future.

This neat, fastidiously clean B&B is like staying with your best friends. You will get to know the dogs, the chickens in the yard that supply breakfast and most of all Gary your friendly host. Afterall it's Gary's home and he will make you feel at home. Don't miss the walk down to the Loch across the street. Gary's breakfasts are yummy too. We will come back next trip to Scotland.

We had an excellent two night stay at an struan, made to feel at home by Gary straight away, breakfast was superb fresh eggs and home made bread was a good start to the day. An struan makes a superb base from which to explore the area on foot or in the car

We definitely felt as if we were guests in someone's home. Whether you like this or not, it is up to you. It was very quiet, lovely birds out of the window, amazing breakfast. All in all, it was a nice stay.

However, the walls were very thin. I was woken up by our neighbor snoring. And I am not a light sleeper (in fact, my husband heard it too and he is a bit hard of hearing). I don't mind taking my shoes off, etc., but I was so nervous about forgetting or knocking something over, etc. The room was lovely, but I felt a bit nervous with all my luggage and where I could put it without damaging something.

Stayed on Friday July 12th 2013 for one night. Nice spacious comfortable room and we were made very welcome by owner Gary. On arrival tea and coffee was supplied with cakes and biscuits in the garden (it was a lovely touch and a sunny day!) Breakfast was lovely with fresh eggs and home cooked bread. Just 7 miles north of Oban. A nice spot to bed down for the night if travelling on to Mallaig.

We stayed for one night as we moved north on our way to the Highlands. What a find! We hope to be back for a longer stay in future. We arrived about 4.00pm to be offered afternoon tea and cakes in the garden. Gary is an excellent host who works very hard to make sure your stay is as relaxing and comfortable as possible. We were delighted to find a bottle of wine in our room to help us celebrate an anniversary - which it did. A wonderful thought Gary. - so typical of the efforts he makes. Excellent breakfast all freshly cooked to order. We were sorry to leave. Highly recommended as one of the best B&Bs we have stayed in - and there have been many.
