It's not very far from Oban but the journey along the loch and up the country lane means you feel you're in another world. It's a lovely old house which has been beautifully furnished and our room was a luxurious retreat. Sian is an excellent host with plenty of helpful suggestions for your stay. There's a wide selection of books in the comfortable sitting room and in the morning there was an excellent breakfast. A great experience!

This place is a bit out in the country, began to think we were driving lost when we finally arrived. Sian met us at the car and led us in to our room. One of the best rooms in our 3 week vacation, luxury from the beginning. Sian knew we were tired, so she brewed us a pot of tea and bought it, with homemade shortbread to our room. Her recommendations for dinner, and her call ahead topped off our evening. Wife hated leaving after one night wishing we had booked longer.

Room Tip: One track road most of the way, you will get there

If you are looking for luxury, hospitality, and a rural setting, this is your place! Sian met us in the drive and warmly welcomed us to our rooms, then invited us to the common room for hot scones and tea. We had a spacious room, beautifully decorated with classy linens, fine local art, and a 4 poster bed. There were beautiful views in two directions. Everything about this place was high class, without an exorbitant price tag. In my book the most important feature of any B and B is the hospitality and friendliness of the proprietors, and at Blarcreen house, we got it all- even breakfast was over the top superb. It's a little bit of a drive from Oban, but we got to drive through a charming sheep pasture and experienced a bit of authentic Scotland countryside! If you are looking for lodging anywhere in the region, I doubt you could do better than this gem of a B and B!

Magnificent house, great hosts. Every detail well thought and presented from the beatiful thick robes, bubble bath, candies in room, outstanding breakfast. We even had a fun evening sharing a glass of wine and whiskey with the hosts and another guest couple. Just wish I had known about pre-ordering supper so we didn't have to go out but then we would have missed the cow crossing!!!! Spactualr garden and running river beside the property.

Room Tip: All seem to have beautiful views..

We spent a night at this beautiful home which is a bit remote from Oban but well worth the interesting drive into the city. Our room (the Loch Etive) room was super with a large poster canopy bed and a view of the adjacent field complete with sheep. We enjoyed an excellent breakfast in the company of two other couples; one locally and one from Canada. There are two routes to the B&B and we took both. Different views but both drives enjoyable.

Room Tip: The Loch Etive room with a poster canopy bed is great.
