A warm welcome, fresh fruit, real milk, choice of fish as well as the usual fare for breakfast, log burning stove and a warm clean and comfortable room with a view of Tarbert harbour. What more could you want?

Very warm welcome, very spacious and clean. Lovely lounge room with wood burning stove and excellent recommendations for dinner that evening. Very tasty breakfast. Highly recommend this B&B!

Despite having traveled around most of Scotland, we had never managed to get down and around the Kintyre. We chose Tarbert as our base for the weekend and my wife spent some considerable time sourcing a suitable B&B and Knap more than lived up to our expectations. We have experienced too much 'unsuitable' accommodation around Scotland in nearly twenty years...

Very warm welcome which was nice as, for a small village, we couldn't find the establishment! Nice wee touches like the fresh milk and a jug of water in the fridge. Comfortable beds and lovely, hearty breakfast. Would love to come back in the summer months to tour more of the area. Alistair makes you feel at home. Would certainly...

I wish I was an undercover hotel inspector then my review would be meaningful!! During this trip North we stayed,during the course of a week, in six different hotel, B&B or Guest house accomodations. In terms of price they were all a similar rate per night to Knap Guest House. HOWEVER what we got for our money was beyond comparison....

We only had one night at the Knap Guest House and wished we could have stayed longer. Its location is excellent, right on the harbour in Tarbert and it allows you easy access to the islands of Islay, Colonsay, Jura and Gigha and to the Kintyre Peninsular. Tarbert is a delightful little town filled with interesting shops, galleries and restaurants....
