We were staying here for one night only to catch the ferry in Kinnecraig the next morning. Due to an accident on the mountain road we were late in arriving and we had a very early ferry to catch so our time here was very limited. Everyone in our party agreed that we wished we could magically pick up the...

Beautifully decorated, comfortable, great breakfast, really fantastic, fun host! Andrew is a gem, and we SO enjoyed our stay here in beautiful Tarbert. Everything was spotlessly clean and the breakfast was delicious, more food than I could eat, but I wanted to!

Andrew is very welcoming and we had a lovely peaceful stay here. The house is beautifully decorated, clean, neat & tidy. We loved the lighting and the thoughtful USB plugs. Breakfast was very tasty and loved the Stornaway black pudding. We would happily stay here again, thank you Andrew.

Have stayed with Andrew many times and each time there is something new. New quality oak doors were fitted over the winter, patio areas added in the spring and now hoping to go back to see the latest addition - Bimbo the puppet. Specially commissioned by Andrew, Bimbo was due to stand (hang) in the hall politely reminding guests of...

On our visit to Tarbert this beautiful little b&b stood out from the rest, surrounded by a beautifully kept garden with lots of character. We were first greeted with a warm and friendly welcome from the owner Andrew and immediately noticed the delightful marble floor through the hallway along with the doorman Bimbo the clown displaying the house rules- a...

This is one of my favourite and most beautiful places that I've ever stayed in! The unique and quirky decor compliments the warm and very hospitable atmosphere that relaxes you and makes you feel like you belong there. With a hint of Enid Blyton's Famous Five at every corner and viewpoint, this is truly a place of memories in the...

The accommodation and breakfast were both excellent, and well worth their five stars. Apart from this, though, the house and garden are full of amazing artefacts, items, puppets, and ornaments - a really eclectic collection. In addition there was the interesting breakfast time conversation with proprietor Andrew and two other visitors. All in all a most enjoyable stay.
