Oban is a major ferry port for Inner and Outer Hebrides so there is a lot of pressure on the overnight B&B trade with some places in the town only taking bookings of 2 nights plus. Not so Fiona's Avoncraig B&B. The place is in a fantastic postion looking out over the harbour from a vantage point by McCaigs Tower... More

After a week's cycling around the islands, we wanted a quality b&b to stay in on our last night - Avoncraig proved to be a great choice - modern, clean and comfy. Fiona made us very welcome and made sure we didn't want for anything. Breakfast was fantastic. This is clearly a well run b&b and the information on local... More

We stayed at the B&B for one night. Avoncraig is well located on the hills of Oban: 7 minutes on the way down to town and maybe a bit longer on the way up but the walk is pleasant. The rooms are comfortable, modern and clean. The breakfast was really well cooked; it is served in the dining room with... More

We stopped in Oban on our way cycling (plenty of ferry miles, and electric assist bikes!) from Galloway to the Outer Hebrides. Avoncraig excellently situated (motors helped up the steep Oban hills...) with good views and Fiona a very welcoming and hospitable host, with helpful information about where to eat in Oban, etc. Highly recommended.

Four cyclists starting and finishing a Hebridean adventure could not have had a more welcoming and comfortable stay in Oban. The view from the breakfast table provided a fitting prospect and reflection on our journey. Fiona, thanks for your fine hospitality.

Only stayed for one night but thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Very friendly owner and quiet location yet only a (steep) short walk from the station/ferry terminal. Thoroughly recommended!

Fionna Campbell is the best example of a good host. The accomodations were very comfortable, the breaskfast offfered a good variety and well prepared. The stay was throughly enjoyable. A place will we recommend and hope to return to in the future. We did enjoy the climb down up each day and the view is breathtaking from the tower.
