The saddest part about Killean Farmhouse is, due to how busy and beautiful Inveraray is, this place will probably continue to have guests - and this B&B should be boycotted by all.
My partner and I checked in at 8:30pm after a long drive and went to get dinner. We were told at this point that the door was locked at 11pm and (verbatim) "we could make our plans around that". We went and got dinner in town, got back at 11:30pm, found the door open (their only moment of decency), was quiet as possible, showered and went to sleep.
After a pretty awful sleep due to very uncomfortable pillows and bedding, the next morning we were asked to leave as this kind of 'behaviour' was not welcome - leaving us with nowhere to stay!
When we pointed this out, and said we could be in at 11pm tonight but last night was hard as we were already so late, the lady of the house (who is written about in other reviews) just straight out said no and told us to leave. We then pointed out that we were now going to be incredibly inconvenienced as nowhere else would take us on such short notice and asked if she would she take a lower rate for the previous night due to the fact these house 'rules' are not published anywhere (not on the website, not anywhere in the BnB, and not mentioned to us on the phone when we booked), she threatened to call the police because she said we were trying to get our of our bill! At this point we just paid and left, because she clearly couldn't be reasoned with.
This lady should not be running a B&B, and I would strongly advise finding a different town to stay in if it's your only option left in Inveraray. She only takes cash payments, turns the hot water off after 10am, and breakfast is STRICTLY only served at 8am or 8:30am. Honestly, I could go on and on... I just really felt for the other staff, who did seem lovely.
