Very nice B&B located centrally in small village of Clachan. The owners were out for a walk when we arrived but door was open and instructions were left on door. We had just finished a section of the Kintyre Way from Claonaig and were absolutely soaked. When the owners arrived they were very helpful in drying our clothes and hiking...

Such a lovely homely place, very comfortable stay and a yummy breakfast with lots of home made goodies. Mrs Moller was very kind and gave us great tips for our visit to Gigha the following day. Had a brilliant stay and will be back no doubt.

Lovely place & really looked after by the hostess. Despite arriving after 10pm (our day's walking took much longer than anticipated), she still welcomed us in with a 2 course meal. Really appreciated & beautiful rooms too. Thank you. x

A comfortable and welcoming place to stay after the first day's walking over moorland from Tarbert to Claonaig, on the Kintyre Way. Warm and relaxing accommodation. Hearty breakfast and good food in the evening. The owners were kind, informative and very helpful, Mrs Moller personally delivered an item I'd forgotten to the next B and B location.
