The Byre is really peaceful (apart from the Cockerel!), very clean & well maintained. It is very cosy and well equipped. We were able to have visitors for lunch one day and there was plenty of room for us all. (6 adults and 3 small children!) Beata is very friendly, she makes you feel welcome & relaxed from the moment...

The place was sparkling clean and all appliances, bathroom, towels,...

Had the absolute pleasure of staying here for 5 days on our first trip to Scotland. The accommodations were superb; clean, quiet, comfortable, roomy but cozy. The view is fantastic and the garden lovely. A short drive will take you into beautiful Oban. Really hated to leave but looking forward to going back.
