    Beautiful spot and great hosts

    The location of the cottage is superb; with a beautiful view on the loch; next to the Melfort Hotel that has a bar and restaurant and next to a wonderful botanical garden. The hosts (Darren & Linda) are so nice and attentive that we wished we had more time to spend at the Old Cottage.

    Fantastic time, cottage was beautiful as were the views and so much wildlife, Karen and Darren were strangers when we arrived but dear friends when we left, perfect hosts. Room was perfect, shower fab, breakfasts delicious and the hotel is a 2 minute walk away which also serves delicious food. Will definitely be back.

    Fantastic charming and welcoming B&B

    Fantastic B&B with lovely hosts, great breakfast and charming, quiet and comfortable room with big in-room bathroom with shower and bathtub. The hosts were amazing, welcoming and attentive. The room was beautiful and relaxing. Walking distance there is a hotel with bistro and restaurant that is really convenient for dinner (and good food too), and the beautiful Arduane Gardens are just behind the B&B. We would go there again without a doubt.
