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 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.
