Stayed here on the very competitive room only rate when travelling on business and the standard of my room exceeded my expectations, especially the cleanliness and Graham's general attention to detail. Ideal for an overnight stop when exploring or passing through this very scenic area.

Wonderful stay! We didn't have a car and the bus took us right to the road that we needed so it is very easy and convenient to get to by public transportation. Very comfy bed, clean throughout, and central to the Kennacraig Ferry. Graham and his wife were so incredibly sweet and breakfast was delicious. Highly suggest staying here!

Staying at Bluebell Cottage the night before our catching our Islay ferry turned out to be a great decision! Owner Graham was most welcoming, the room was light and airy, with tea and coffee making facilities and an ensuite shower room. Everything was spotlessly clean and the next morning we enjoyed a lovely breakfast with lots of fresh fruit. In...

Stayed at Bluebell Cottage for two nights when we visited Islay. Very friendly welcome from Graham. Nothing was too much trouble. Very clean and comfortable accommodation. We had an early start after our first night so, didn't have breakfast but, we did partake of a locely continental style breakfast on our second day. Graham knows the area well and is...

Warm and welcoming despite the winter weather, excellent host and comfortable beds with spotless room. Breakfast was delicious (I am rather particular about my toast and found it perfect) I'd advise the west loch hotel for dinner, excellent for a veggie and a venison eater

We stayed at Bluebell Cottage for a couple of nights and really enjoyed ourselves. It's bright and clean, good breakfasts too. We used this as our base to visit Arran, Tarbert and then Islay. The West Loch Hotel, just down the road, serves a very good meal. Regarding cost (per the category below) I've indicated 'budget' only because I believe...

Overall: stopped in for one night of rest before catching the early ferry, and it was a great value for the cost. Hospitality and Food: the host was very kind to wait up for us. We were making a long drive from Edinburgh that evening and missed one of the last ferries that connect the various peninsulas in this area,...

This B&B was a real gold mine of a find. It was less than 2 minutes from the ferry to Islay and the accommodations were amazing. Clean, comfortable, spacious and beautiful, it was a total win. We will be staying here again for sure!

We stayed at the B&B for two nights and loved everything about it. You can arrive any time you like, and we were even allowed to sleep in. The rooms are all very clean and spacious, the bed is comfortable, there's tea & coffee in the room. The breakfast is absolutely delicious, as well. Graham is a lovely host, helped...
