I would totally recommend a stay with Fiona at Avoncraig. We stayed only one night before catching a ferry to Lochboisdale and Fiona was more than happy to provide a takeaway breakfast having our early start. The room was great and very comfortable with great views of Oban and an easy walk down to the quay. Would definitely stay again.

I spent one night with my family in Avoncraig B&B. And what should I say except: perfect. The rooms were nice and tidy and although we had to leave early at 7 we were offered the full range of breakfast. It was really fantastic. Thanks again for the hospitality!

I've had to work myself up to writing this response! What can I say? It was a truly unforgettable experience having you here on holiday. They broke the mould after you Dave and it's probably just as well. The downstairs "museum" was open today briefly but I hope it will soon be closed down permanently- maybe with its curator inside!...

We had a very nice stay at the Avoncraig B&B in Oban. Very friendly welcome, large room + bath room and a very comfortable bed. The breakfast room has a beautiful view over Oban (as long as the weather allows it). The town is accessible by a short walk down the hill. We can really recommend Avoncraig B&B!

I cannot praise this little gem of a Bed & Breakfast highly enough. On a wonderful location looking down onto the Harbour with a very discreet and professional hostess, the Avoncraig is an excellent choice. The breakfast is top quality and the rooms are well-appointed and modern with internet connection and large bathroom. Plenty of tourist info is available as...

We spent six nights at Avoncraig and can highly recommend this B&B. Fiona is a wonderful host, very generous and friendly. The room was perfectly clean, the breakfast phantastic and the view from the breakfast room to the harbour unique. Just a perfect stay! Thank you, Fiona, for everything!

Avoncraig is complicated to find, but the view makes it absolutely worth it. We ate breakfast overlooking the water. The added benefit of being so far up the hillside was the proximity to McCaig's Tower. It was a three minute walk, and afforded even better views. Fiona has a cozy little B&B, I think it only has two rooms, and...
