Good Hotel Guide Review

Cresting a small hill, with uninterrupted views to the sea, Sean and Karen O’Byrne’s secluded, eco-friendly spot brings Scandinavian style to Loch Creran. The super-modern, open-plan space is filled with splashes of colour against light wood furniture; floor-to-ceiling windows in every bedroom open to stunning sunsets. B&B accommodation is in neat, contemporary bedrooms, each with a king-size bed and underfloor heating. All are supplied with fluffy bathrobes, oversized towels and little extras – hand-made chocolates, complimentary treats in the mini-fridge. Arrive to sweet pastries at teatime; whenever the desire strikes, reach for the help-yourself coffee, malt whisky and home-made whisky cream liqueur in the hallway. Breakfast, in the glass-fronted dining room looking towards the water, has plenty of interesting choices: home-made soda bread, oatcakes, pesto scrambled eggs, a Scottish platter with Stornoway black pudding and tattie scones – all washed down with a freshly blended fruit smoothie or a custom-made Bloody Mary. The hosts have plenty of advice on local itineraries; alternatively, stay on site for a traditional longbow lesson taught by Sean O’Byrne, a former world champion. Dining room. Free Wi-Fi, in-room TV (Freeview). No background music. 1-acre farmland (archery range). Day passes available for the spa, gym and golf course at the Isle of Eriska Hotel (charged extra; see main entry). Children over 12 allowed. 10½ miles N of Oban. 4 bedrooms. Per person B&B £60–£85. 3-night min. stay preferred in twin rooms. Closed Dec–Feb.
