#1 of 2 B&Bs / Inns in Strachur
A luxurious bed and breakfast with spacious and comfortable rooms set in a peaceful rural location in the heart of the Argyll Forest. Close to the shores of Loch Fyne and Lock Eck, this former farmhouse is ideally situated for exploring the Cowal peninsula, Argyll’s west coast and further afield into the Scottish Highlands – and equally suitable for an active break or a quiet country retreat.

We have been staying at Balliemeanoch Breaks for 0ver 6 years now, and it has never disappointed or been anything other than superb. It is all the little touches (fresh flowers in our room, fresh eggs from the hens that wander around the garden, fresh raspberries for breakfast and so on) plus the warmth and kindness of Angela's welcome that ke this as good a B+B as you will find anywhere!

Stayed for 3 nights at the B&B and had a lovely time! The house is situated outside the main road, in a very quiet area, perfect for those who want a break from the city crowds and noise. If you like waking up to a view of green hills, sheep and chicks walking around the garden, this is the ideal place to be! The rooms are spacious, clean and cosy, perfect to stay in after a day spent outdoors. Breakfast is home-cooked, eggs are coming from Angela's chicks, the jams are home-made and overall everything is absolutely delicious! Angela is a great host and she's also arranged luggage transfers for me and my friends while doing the Loch Lomond and Cowal Way. We also arranged with her transfers along the way, as finding accomodations along the route just after lockdown was not the easiest. We all loved our stay, really appreciated Angela's cooking and availability to drive us around for our walk. I definitely recommend it!

We stayed with Angela for one night in order to go to the nearby restaurant Inver. Little did we know that Angela’s place would be a wonderful treat as well! Lovely rooms, so comfortable and nicely decorated. Sublime Scottish breakfast and warm, wonderful hospitality. Angela was so kind and we loved her dog Marley and the friendly chickens too. We’ll be going back - and would 100% recommend Balliemeanoch to all.

We have stayed at Balliemeanoch Breaks several times over the past 4+ years and is just perfect. Angela goes out of her way to be the perfect host. The rooms are so comfortable, the setting so peaceful and breakfast is just wonderful. However, it is the extra little details that make it so special - fresh cut flowers,home made bread at breakfast with 4 different homemade jams, homemade cinnamon muffins, rescue hens happily wandering about, and of course Marley the lovable dog. Also if you need a lift to eat out, Angela will arrange transport with John the local very friendly taxi-driver. You owe it to yourselves to visit!
