Greystones

UK Scotland Highlands Argyll & Bute Oban

  • Sensational Views
  • Boutique B&B
A stylish and very comfortable B&B in the centre of Oban, with stunning views.

Not all B&Bs are created equal, a fact you are quickly reminded of when you arrive at this beautifully situated grand old house on a hill above the bay in Oban. The warmth of the welcome and spaciousness of the rooms are only exceeded by the stunning nature of the views – right across to Mull and the smaller isle of Kerrera. This former cottage hospital is about as comfortable as could be, with a great location right in the centre of town and just a short walk from the waterfront.

There is a stylishness to the five rooms that perhaps you don't expect in a building of this nature, with contemporary furniture, soft, muted tones and modern art, along with flatscreen TVs, Wi-Fi, high-quality bed linen, tea and coffee-making facilities, and (a nice thought) glasses and a corkscrew so you can enjoy a glass of wine while getting used to those views. There's a sitting room and library downstairs with complimentary whisky, and the owners Archie and Mo cook up a fabulous breakfast in their turreted dining room every morning – not only a superb cooked Full Scottish, and good quality smoked salmon, but also delicious and unusual alternatives as well as vegetarian and vegan options.

As for Oban, it's a busy town with plenty to draw you, from its historic Oban Distillery to the bizarre colosseum of McCaig's Tower. Eeusk and The Waterfront Fishouse are among the best fish and seafood restaurants on the west coast. Oban is the main gateway to the various islands of the Hebrides, including Mull, Iona and beyond to the Western Isles.

Getting There

Coming from the cities of the south or Inverness, follow the A85 into Oban and turn left halfway down the hill, just after the King's Knoll Hotel, onto Deanery Brae. At the next junction, go straight across to Dalriach Road, past Atlantis Leisure centre and continue to the end of the road. Greystones is the last house on the right.

By train or ferry, walk north along George Street form the harbour; turn right onto Craigard Road and walk up the hill. Greystones is on the left.
