We had another excellent stay at Achaleven byre - our 8th visit. As always clean, tidy, well furnished with new bed and sofa. Lovely shower and well heated. Well stocked kitchen. Plenty of cereals, tea, coffee, milk supplied. It is excellently positioned for Oban which is just a train or bus ride away. Lovely beaches nearby and walks. Bikes available...

Achaleven Byre photos do not do it justice! When you enter the cottage, you'll be surprised by how spacious it is. Open plan living/kitchen/dining is so compact, everything is within easy reach, and at the same time, as I said, loads of space. Well equipped accommodation, everything you need is here. Our host, Beata, was very nice and helpful without...

Stayed here for 4 nights. The byre was an absolute haven to come home to every night. The spotless house, central heating, hot shower and super comfy bed were divine. Beata was lovely and very accommodating. Would highly recommend this place.

A very nicely converted Byre which provided comfortable accommodation for 2 persons. Very clean and well maintained. We had a bit of difficulty finding it. If travelling from the south (Crianlarich) look for a sign for SCHOOL. then take 1st left . Go under a very narrow railway bridge and follow the road round. At the Y junction take the...

Spotless, comfortable, well appointed with everything you could need and very cosy - a home from home. Well located for all parts in the Oban area with good links north. Walkable into village to hotel and pub and enjoyed fantastic sunset! Wish we could have stayed longer

We had another excellent stay at Achaleven byre - our 6th in 7 years. Both Beata and Stephen were very accommodating in all aspects. It was very handy having the farm nearby as we were able to buy free range eggs. Really beautiful scenery and a convenient location for cycling and walking in lovely countryside. The byre was very well...

The byre is a lovely cottage, well kept and equipped. It was spotlessly clean when we arrived and on asking where the cleaning equipment was we were firmly told by Beata that she doesn't leave it in the cottage as it is our holiday and her job to clean! What a refreshing change from some self catering accomodation I have...

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay in this excellent accommodation - quite simply one of the best self catering places we have ever stayed in in Scotland. Spotlessly clean, well equipped, comfy bed and lovely location - with the added bonus of breakfast provided! A beautifully converted stone cottage which makes an excellent base for exploring the Oban area; peaceful...
