We had a wonderful 4 night stay with our little wire haired dachshund Bertie in tow, we could not have been happier with the friendly and efficient service the quality of the food and the comfort and cleanliness of the accommodation. And they have a lovely well stocked little garden centre and shop on top of their b & b and lovely little cafe. I would certainly recommend the staff and their accommodation to friends and family.

Tips:

Lots to fir the active such as horse riding cycling hiking and water sports, but also a very relaxing area to simply take in the scenery and peace and quiet of the area. The staff are very helpful in advising what to do and where to go. I would recommend that you make dinner reservations ahead of your travel as all the local restaurants we tried were fully booked for almost a week ahead when we were there.

Our 2 night stay was very comfortable and very convenient for the reason for our short visit to this area. felt very safe considering the "current climate". Accomodation extremely clean and all our needs were provided for. Lovely platters left in fridge for the evening as arranged and breakfast very tasty.Certainly would book to stay here again.

I will be recommending Glenbarr House to my family and friends.We enjoyed our stay very much.The location is peaceful,the Hayloft was pristine, the staff were very friendly(although the shop staff member on Wednesday morning was a bit grumpy((wrong side of bed))lol). I would note the discrepancies between eat in and take out food are quite excessive,although the local produce is excellent. More leaflet and info on local transport would have helped us.

Tips:

Own transport for the peninsula is highly recommended as local buses are not very reliable.Always check for availability on ferries before travelling to avoid disappointment.The local produce is of a very high standard and should be tried(the smoked cheeses in particular are delectable). Try beachcombing on Machrihanish Bay if the weather holds,good chance for photo opportunities with seals,otters and even whales. For the brave and adventurous,the Corryvreckan whirlpool.For the history,Islay and for the adrenaline,the Paps of Jura.

A wonderful place to stay when visiting Kintyre. We spent 2 nights in ‘Holly’ and wouldn’t change a thing. A comfortable bed, a huge bathroom and lots of thoughtful touches. You get all the facilities of a self catering house and the bonus of a great breakfast! We ordered a cheese platter for our first evening (plenty for 2), lots of different cheeses, cold meat and fresh salad and we ate it in the glasshouse surrounded by plants and classical music ( for the plants!). We were so impressed that we had another platter the following evening, again delicious. The cafe was spotless and the service was great. The garden centre and shop were well stocked with local produce and crafts. Staff were friendly and welcoming and all COVID-19 restrictions were adhered to. We will definitely return, hopefully very soon!

Tips:

This time we had travelled to Kintyre to explore the stunning area around Southend. Driving was a challenge in places! We took the scenic route to Southend (single track road), fabulous views and glorious weather, a photographer’s dream. It’s worth visiting the lighthouse at the end of Kintyre, again the views are amazing. The road out there is also single track with passing places. We were lucky as it was very quiet, good reversing is definitely necessary especially as motorhomes seem very popular there.

We had a lovely time, really enjoyed being at the house. A friend recommended it, unfortunately she tends to be "colourful" with the truth and told us we could watch the sunset from the greenhouse whilst looking out over the water, so could you please relocate the green house nearer the water for the next visit . Thank you.

Tips:

There is a beautiful bay for a swim, can't remember the name , it's by the yellow church, the woman in the shop will direct you, worth a visit . Elinor Slone ? gave us a great update on everything and everybody in Carradale, very knowledgeable about the whole or area. Really nice staff, room attendants very friendly and helpful. Lovely relaxed atmosphere about the place, so glad you allow dogs. We will be back. Thanks. X

I honestly hate to highlight a few things but feel i need to in order to make it a 10/10 experience rather than a 9/10. There wasn't enough toilet paper for a 2 night stay (although we managed to find some in the back of the kitchen). It would make a huge difference if the towels were large fluffy bath sheets rather than simply bath towels. Our towels didn't get replenished (although we did follow the instructions and left the used ones on the bathroom floor). The cord for the blind in the Holly room didn't work properly and so we had to leave the main blind open which meant the room was quite light during the night. (i realise we could have highlighted this at this at time but didn't like to complain) Otherwise we had a lovely stay and were extremely impressed and felt it was more like a boutique hotel rather than a B&B. We will leave a great review on Booking.com and would definitely recommend the House@Glenbarr to others. Also, your Garden Centre motivated us to buy plants and flowers for the very first time!

Tips:

Make use of the lovely lounge, kitchen and outdoor areas. Visit Gigha. Visit Clachan.

Owner Response:

Thank you very much for your honest review, I am aware that the blind is not working properly and will organise its repair. I have also taken note of your comment regarding the towels. Delighted that the garden centre did it's job and you will be able to remember your stay at Glenbarr for a while to come when you look at them in your garden.

There is something very special about this B&B and the high ratings are very deserved. There is a kitchen and lounge area for residents to use. The glasshouse and garden are also accessible during the evening. And the breakfast setting is in a class of its own. Furthermore, you can expect a quality nights’ sleep due to the luxury bed and duvet. Thank you for having us!

Great wee set-up, all immediate needs catered for. Our room, the Hay Loft, was essentially an apartment, comfortable for a lengthy stay if required. Glenbarr Stores is clearly the hub for a very small, inland community. Despite no sea view, Glenbarr is the perfect location for exploring Kintyre. Charming staff, a special nod to Liz.

Tips:

Trip to Machrihanish is essential, dinner at Old Clubhouse pub is recommended. If, like us, you are blessed with good weather, just taking in the scenery is good enough. If you try to find the Gormley statue at Saddell, I wish you luck! Get directions from a local.

Superb tonight stay that we wish had been longer. Just everything was wonderful and perfect sunny weather was a bonus. Zofiya and her team could not have been more welcoming, in the house, shop/garden centre and cafe. We look forward to returning!

Tips:

There’s so much to do here, though the highlights of our visit were Achamore Gardens on Gigha ( make sure you arrive early for the ferry as it’s only a small one), the Skipness Seafood Cabin ( so good we ate there twice!) was a fantastic recommendation by Zofiya, it’s hard to choose a favourite beach as there are so many wee spots looking towards Jura, Gigha, Arran. Lots of wildlife to look out for - Didn’t spot an otter this time but there was plenty of evidence of them, so we’ll be back!!

We visited the house@glenbarr b&b for seven nights. It was a really lovely place. Quiet location. All COVID secure with hand gels around every corner, we were greeted on entry and explained all the measures being taken and how breakfast would now be served in the next door cafe. We stayed in the Holly room which was spotless with a double bed, small sitting area and en suite bathroom. Continental breakfast was great - plenty of choice on the menu, something for everyone’s tastes. Owner Zofie and staff were brilliant and incredibly friendly and you really felt as though nothing was too much trouble. The establishment have a small onsite shop, garden centre and excellent cafe serving delicious food at exceptional value. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, whilst feeling very safe. We would thoroughly recommend this b&b!

As we were travelling during Covid times is was a real shame that the Communal kitchen Was closed. Completely understand why and can see it’s just not feasible or safe to open it. This is the only reason facilities have a 4 and not a 5! Should we be in this area again we would love to stay here. Didn’t fully experience the wonderful looking food shop and Deli as we arrived too late and set off in the morning before it was open. Liz was the friendly member of staff who greeted us on arrival and provided us with a breakfast bag for our onwards travel to the ferry the next morning.

Tips:

We travelled through to manrihanish dunes village for dinner. And ate in the pub. Very friendly and accommodating staff and food also good. Stop at Tarbert on the way through. Wander round the harbour and have a drink to sit & watch the world go by... it’s very pretty

Great stay. The restrictions due to Covid-19 meant that we couldn't access the kitchen or lounge which would have been useful. We did make use of the tables in the greenhouse, it might be helpful for other clients if there was a notice as to where the light switch was, we did find it after a bit of hunting in the dark. The heating in the rooms was a bit strange, just coming on on our last morning and not in the evening. Tasty breakfast and good to be able to purchase extras. Thank you will recommend you to others.

Staff very friendly and helpful, welcoming us and wishing my partner a happy birthday they had decorated our table with beautiful felt "Happy Birthday" garland . Good food simply presented, delicious coffee. On our return in the evening we discovered a greetings card and two individual bottles of Prosecco with accompanying champagne flutes awaiting us in our room. A most thoughtful and appreciated touch. Thank you all at the House @Glenbarr.

Tips:

As no evening meals here we ate on both evenings at the Argyll Hotel ,relaxed friendly restaurant overlooking the bay, with a varied selection of tasty dishes on the menu. A walk along Westport Beach is a must, we were fortunate ,it was not too busy. Seek out the Linda McCartney memorial garden in Campbeltown ,it is tucked away ,but a place of total peace.

We were in the Hayloft which was superb, extremely comfortable and loved the alpaca duvet! Everything was so clean and lovely soft white bed linen. Great little well equipped kitchen and table and chairs separate to seating and bed area. Shower room with plenty hot water and fresh towels. Everyone was so helpful. Spotlessly clean and tidy. Breakfast was delicious in the lovely cafe and enjoyed buying filled rolls for our picnic. Will definitely be recommending it to friends and family.

Tips:

Lovely beaches nearby and hotel 5 minutes away for takeaway... you can watch the sunset from the hotel beach with your takeaway !

Lovely few night’s stay. Very comfortable and very clean with everything in place to reassure visitors during this difficult time. Service excellent and smashing shop to tempt visitors.

Tips:

We visited Gigha and also spent a day on the beach at Carradale. Both heavenly. The challenge for any visitor at this time, is that not all dining places are open or if they are, hours are restricted. This is understandable and best to take some time to plan where and when to eat.

Everything was wonderful. You made us very welcome in the new days of face masks and distancing and made us feel safe. Super idea to let us use the huge greenhouse with picnic table for eating our takeaway dinner one evening since many places were still yet to re-open. Breakfast was delicious and our rooms fresh, clean and well supplied. Really enjoyed our little holiday and we’ll be back.

Beautiful boutique b n b with large stylish and modern room, amazingly comfortable king size bed (a 5 minute nap turned into a blissful 3 hour sleep!!), and great garden with cafe for alfresco breakfast (the weather was great!). We have stayed here before as is so well located for a day trip to Gigha and trips to Kintyre’s stunning west coast beaches. It’s great value for money and also has a lovely shop to browse and buy tasty treats from!

Tips:

Close to ferry for day trip to island of Gigha - amazing restaurant on beach there and lots of white sandy beaches to enjoy. Drive a few miles south of Glenbarr to beautiful Westport beach and slightly further afield to Campbeltown and it’s distilleries. We stayed in Hebe room on ground floor and were incredibly impressed with size, style and comfort of room.

A great place to stay and enjoy superb and spotless accommodation with beautiful Kintyre beaches 5 minutes away by car . The rooms are situated next to a lovely garden centre , cafe , shop and general store and we enjoyed a great breakfast in the beautiful garden area . We also sat there in the evening and had it rained there was a covered area available . This was key as the shared kitchen area was closed due to Covid restrictions . We had 2 very well furnished and immaculate rooms and the beds were so comfy . Would highly recommend .

Tips:

There is a lovely beach 5 mins away with hotel with great beachside terrace for food and drinks . Westport beach , another 5 mins by car towards Campbeltown is amazing . Kintyre is lovely and has lots to offer . Gigha also worth a visit as is Tarbert and if you want a luxury swim then catch a boat over to Portavadie Spa .

A beautiful b&b/inn that had everything we needed for our stay. The house, cafe, shop, garden centre and property are thoughtful and unique in design and in what it offers to travelers, guests and customers. The house facilities are spotless with large, airy, luxurious rooms and over-the-top comfortable beds. Breakfast was delicious and we were so glad we ordered dinner from the cafe (delivered to the house). The meal was delicious and focused on locally sourced products. They go above and beyond to ensure your stay at the house@glenbarr and visit to Glenbarr is memorable. Highly recommended.

Tips:

Take the time to sit in the garden or cafe and have a scrumptious snack or meal - it's a perfect place to relax and enjoy their cuisine. And a walk around Glenbarr and area and past the Abbey is a must. It's charming - the landscape is beautiful, views spectacular and the people friendly.

Enjoyed the set-up of the House. Staying in the Hay Barn allowed us to relax at any time we felt like staying in before or after heading out exploring the area. Liked the breakfast as you can plan your own timing etc. Facilities are really excellent, would have given a 5 but maybe a DVD player would be good to allow guests the option of watching a movie while staying. Location is very good, a little closer to Cambeltown would have been ideal but you can't have everything!

Tips:

Argyll Hotel is very good and reasonably priced and pet-friendly. The hotel at Machrihanish has a nice pub next door for lunches and a spa which is great for a treat. The Glen Scotia distillery tour is well worth doing, friendly staff and great to see the style of a traditional still.

This was a lovely little find last minute as part of our travels and we wish we had time to stay for one more night. Bedroom was lovely, decorated very nicely and had everything we needed. The lounge area was nice and cosy also and breakfast in the morning was ideal for us to help ourselves. The lady from the post office who made the freshly baked croissants was very friendly and helpful with our questions. Only one negative, which is a personal thing, is the fact the house accepts dogs. We knew this in advance but didn’t appreciate the big dog bouncing into the lounge area at night while we were sitting drinking a cup of tea. The owners were just behind but weren’t exactly respectful it wasn’t their house and keeping the dog at their side.

Tips:

We had dinner at the Argyll Hotel which is only a few minutes drive away and has an amazing view. If you’re lucky enough to get a beautiful view of the evening sunset.

Stopped here for one night. All was as expected. Rooms were spotlessly clean, breakfast was well laid out and plentiful. The full cream milk was delicious. A lot of thought had gone into items in the room, including an led light for use in the night, eye masks and ear plugs. I hasten to add that the ear plugs would only be needed if your partner was snoring, because it was very quiet. Glenbarr is a lovely little village near to the Ghia ferry and the Kennacraig ferry.

We loved being able to sit out in the garden. We loved the breakfast and the use of the kitchen. The decor and design was all so tastefully done. We must say though that we were very glad to have the place to ourselves as we hadn't realised just how much sharing there'd be of the kitchen and lounge with other residents. (We're a bit anti-social!) If all the other rooms were in use, it could have got quite awkward if no-one knew each other as it was quite intimate! Ideal if you make a group booking though or if you are very outgoing!

A lovely place to stay - we'd definitely like to come back and stay again. Very comfortable bed, nice fresh decor everywhere, all areas very clean, friendly host and staff - our only reservation is that the small dining area of the kitchen may not be adequate if all the guest letting rooms are occupied, and the help yourself kitchen area would be very busy, although of course not everyone would be breakfasting at the same time. There is also the cafe area for hot food which could be used after 9am. An extra welcome touch was the warm croissants at breakfast and the cakes in the fridge in the evening. Tea/coffee/fruit juices available all the time, also a nice touch. In all, highly recommended.

Tips:

The pub at the Machrihanish Golf Course was excellent ( not the Dunes course ), and the Ardsheil Hotel Campbeltown, ( not good for disabled access/toilets though ) and the Indian Restaurant the Taj Mahal on the front in Campbeltown were good for food. We wouldn't recommend Munch in Campbeltown - it was a bit disappointing in our view but was busy with takeaway food for locals when we were there. The award winning Muneroy tearoom at Southend and the Cadora cafe/fish restaurant in Tarbert are also both very good. Keep your eyes open for spotting seals, buzzards, red squirrels, otters - and we're told there are sea eagles in the area, although we didn't see any. A good run by car to Kilberry/ Port Ann and to Claonaig has lovely scenery/views. The book shop in Campbeltown is worth a visit, as is the walk to Tarbert Castle. Crinan Canal walks are very interesting, Cairnbaan Hotel pretty standard food, other places better. Kintyre is a beautiful area, with lots to see and do.

The house@glenbarr is a place where you feel like home from the moment you step in. The hosts welcomed us with a warm smile and  showed us the way in. All was well-organised. Our room and the common area were recently refurbished, refined with modern decorations to create a serene space. Breakfast had a "help yourself" set up in the common area, where the hosts left also croissants and pastries in the oven and cakes from their shop in the fridge for everyone to eat. All food was fresh and local. It was also a chance to chat with the other guests about each other's travelling plans and past experiences, all in an open plan kitchen/living room, which felt like everyone's home. Next to the house, the hosts manage a fantastic space, with local shop, garden centre and cafè where the homemade cakes for our breakfast came from. The room was large and the bed comfortable, it was a very nice stop in our scottish tour

1) No milk in room for arrival; no note to say in fridge in kitchen/sitting area. Found this out in the morning! 2) Self service continental breakfast is poor given the £76.50 charged. 3) WiFi didn't work in the room. 4) Mention in property information that "on site parking" means on a public road, albeit a quiet one.

Glanbarr café and garden centre is lovely. We had a very nice meal in the Argyll Hotel also. Kintrye Way worth a visit also.

Enjoyed our stay, accommodation was lovely. Whilst using our bathroom across the hall, on a couple of occasions someone tried to access our bathroom. Maybe a sign on the outside of the door to let guests know that it is for sole use of Hazel guests to avoid any confusion. Also at breakfast time there was no milk available, but managed to get some from the shop, also no spoons or cups available, we eventually located them in the dishwasher. Just a couple of minor issues, but on a plus side very friendly staff & comfortable accommodation. Would recommend to a friend.

We had an amazing stay, very lucky with the weather!. The house is fantastic with great facilities, very cozy bedroom, great breakfast! We felt very spoiled and the only regret is that it was only one night... We loved everything about this place and the shop and the cafe next doors make it that you don't need to go anywhere else!

Excellent base for exploring the beautiful surrounding countryside. All the rooms are immaculate with extremely comfortable beds. The food on offer is of an excellent quality with fresh croissants every morning for breakfast. Parking is right outside the accommodation which is another added bonus. All the staff are friendly and welcoming and always willing to help in any way they can. A thoroughly relaxing and enjoyable stay for the second time.

Tips:

The accomodation itself offers a lovely garden centre next door to potter around in with various plants and small gifts to buy. The cafe is superb with great staff and excellent local cuisine. We had lunch there and it was really tasty! As a paying guest, the large greenhouse can be used at night for dinner or for a quiet place to sit with a glass of wine, reading or listening to the birds singing and fairy lights twinkling. A bountiful supply of wonderful surrounding countryside with an array of wildlife to see, from hawks, seals to deers. There are further opportunities to explore the island of Gigha, Jura and Islay by local ferry. Tarbert is nice to walk around with unique shops and eating places. Campbeltown has a small cinema and a nice cafe called 'Bluebells'. We only had a short visit but you do come back feeling refreshed. As we have family to visit this accomodation is our first choice.

Thanks for your lovely review, the Argyll Hotel is nearby at Bellochantuy - a 5 minute drive. We made the decision not to offer cooking facilities as it would not be suitable for 4 sets of people to be cooking and eating in the kitchen/dining area. We offer a number of dishes (that we prepare in the cafe) for you to heat and serve and have found that this suits those who wish to eat at the House rather than exploring the area. We have found that many guests enjoy the continental breakfast we offer alternativly we offer breakfast in the cafe from 9am - we offer free breakfast rolls to guests booking direct who stay for 2 nights or more.

Great location and room, unfortunately very noisy with workmen staying in the other rooms and a very early wake up call due to them. Then very little food left for breakfast.

Great little place but probably better at the weekend when there are no workmen around. other than that a great location with lots to do if you like the outdoors.

We didn’t have the food provided as we didn’t get round to booking meals as it was a bit last minute. We picked up ready meals from the coop on the way but noticed a sign saying only to heat up food provided by the owners. This was a bit annoying as while we understand why this is the case especially if several groups are staying it would have been helpful to know this in advance. Otherwise everything was wonderful and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Lovely house, well presented, with modern room and en suite and a comfortable sitting room with dining area for guests. Good continental breakfast provided.

Tips:

Good location near the West kintyre coast between Tarbert and Cambletown. Near tayinloan ferry for Ise of f Gigha. Good restsurants at royal hotel Cambletown and old clubhouse at Macrahanish - about 20 and 25 minutes drive from Glenbarr. Plenty of walking and beaches in Kintyre. Continental breakfast included at the House but cooked breakfast available in the owner’s adjacent cafe at extra cost. I feel a hot breakfast should have been included as this was not an inexpensive B and B.

The House at Glenbarr is an excellent location from which to explore the amazing surrounding landscape. The amenities are without fault and all the staff are very kind and courteous. We found the atmosphere of tranquility and calmness suited us with nothing being too much trouble. You won't be disappointed if you book to stay here.

Tips:

We flew to Glasgow then took a Citibus to Campbeltown which whilst lengthy, enabled us to view all the beautiful Lochs and surrounding countryside. We hired a car from 'Kintyre Hire' which was directly opposite the bus stop in Campbeltown, so that was very easy. This firm do deliver cars to Glasgow airport or Campbeltown airport if required. In between visiting family, we visited Carradale, the Mull of Kintyre, Saddle and Tarbert. All these locations are quaint with wonderful surrounding countryside. 'The Bluebell' Cafe in Campbeltown was an excellent place to eat with quick service and tasty food. We also ate at 'The House at Glenbarr, as it was lovely and fitted in with our schedule. The Argyl Hotel is a consideration but I preferred where we were staying. The people you meet are happy and friendly so go some way to make up for the limited amenities in Campbeltown itself. The history of Campbeltown is interesting but our main priority was to take in the surrounding countryside. On our next visit we will be exploring more with a trip over to the Isles of Gigha. If you love beaches and surfing there are numerous spots to set up a camper can and take to the sea.

I really enjoyed my staying at "the house glenbarr". The staff was very friendly and helpful. In the ensuit room "Holly" I had enough space and all facilities were available. The shared kitchen was good equipped for selfservice and in the cafe beside the house are cooked breakfast and other fresh homemade dishes for lunch or supper provided. For my holidays it was the right place. A place to come down and relax.

Tips:

Visit Isle of Gigha, the village Tarbert and all the wonderful beaches along the coast. As traveler without a car it was a bit difficult to come around. I wished the busservice 926 was more often.
