    Great location close to the ferry. Spotlessly clean. Large, comfortable room and fantastic breakfast.

Company information

I have been running the Moorings B&B for going on 40 years and go above and beyond for my guests. I take pride in welcoming my guests into my home and making it their home from home for their stay. After a comfortable nights sleep you can relax in the lounge and enjoy a full Scottish breakfast if desired in front of the new log fire, whilst enjoying views of Loch Fyne. Guests have been known to enjoy wandering the garden and discovering some of the more unusual yet delightful ornaments and sculptures on display in the garden. With lots of wildlife and a family of Swallows that return every year to nest in the porch it can be an ornithologists delight. Spring can be magical at the Moorings. I live within the Moorings with my 3 bearded collies who are rather lively but very friendly. The dogs are allowed into my private area however are not permitted up the stairs to the guest accommodation. You may however encounter them in the garden so if you are uncomfortable with dogs perhaps this is not the place for you. I have lived locally all my life and have good local knowledge so dont be afraid to ask questions as I will be more than happy to help if I can.
