Achaleven Byre Feb 2019
Host was very welcoming and friendly. Room was spotless with the usual facilities. Bathroom smart and functional. Comfy bed. Breakfast had good range and was tasty. Location is nicely secluded but ok for car access. Nice town with some amenities but close to Oban which has most things. Good base for further travel. Many castles and much beautiful scenery.
