Great location for travelling down the peninsula. Very comfortable, almost felt like being at home. We arrived after the host wasn’t available to welcome us, but it wasn’t a problem with access given.

A great place to stop over. Ideally situated for getting to both Macrihanish, and the ferry from Kennacraig to Islay. We had to leave early on the day of checkout and were provided with a lovely packed breakfast to see us on our way. Thank you.

Tips:

Argyll Hotel , about 3 miles South, is a good choice for dinner/food. It’s popular, being right on the beach with fabulous views, so advisable to book in advance.

Directions very clear. Accommodation very clean, extremely well equipped, and comfortable. Staff were very helpful and the chance to eat breakfast outdoors on a sunny morning, while admiring the flowers in the wee garden centre, was just so nice.

Tips:

If you can, buy a copy of the wee walks book, ‘40 walks in Kintyre and South Argyll’, author Douglas Milne. (£6.99 at the time of writing.) He includes the breathtaking Machrihanish Beach but lots of other places for nice - and not overly demanding - walks. We ate dinner at the Argyll Hotel, as recommended by the House at Glenbarr, and had a very nice meal. Well made Polish stuffed cabbage and great falafel were two nice surprises on the menu. The Cullen Skink was also very nice.

Slightly different to most b&b's Very clean great facilities in communal lounge. Bedroom well decorated and comfy. Great stay but sad we didn't get the ordered breakfast bags on our last day. Would recommend and indeed return ourselves when in the area.

Tips:

Our favourite restaurant was Ardshiel hotel in Campbeltown but we were only staying 3 nights so didn't try many places. Kintyre in early may is covered in colour with both wild flowers and rhododendron and other shrubs.

Absolutely perfect location with fab facilities. Our room in the Hayloft was beautiful, spotlessly clean and the most comfortable bed. We loved sitting out in the seating area within the greenhouse in the evening. I would thoroughly recommend to fellow travellers.

Tips:

The cafe on site has lovely food and in the evenings we drove into Campbeltown for a take away. I recommend visiting West Port Beach or one of the other beaches nearby, Davaar Island is a fab day out walking (check tide times first) and a visit to the stunning Skipness Castle then pop next door to the smokehouse for some fresh smoked fish and other produce.

Friendly welcome to us and our dog in the Garden with fresh scones and coffee. Everything was clean and breakfast was in the refrigurator each morning because it was February. For us this was perfect.

Tips:

Drive route 66 on Kintyre and walk to the Lighthouse Mull of Kintyre. You will need a good condition for this walk (very steep descending and ascending on the road to reach the Lighthouse. Go to Saddle Beach where the video clip was taken from Paul Mc Cartney’s Mull of Kintyre.

We were unaware we had been allocated the loft suite which was beautiful clen and well equipment. Due to the circumstances leasing up to our stay which was last minute, we discovered we were the only guests allowing us access to the entire house which we were extremely pleased and happy to use alternative rooms giving my friend easier access due to mobility issues. Unfortunately I left with the keys to the loft house. This was an accident on my part. Liz was wery understanding. Lovely location lovely little shop well equipped

Tips:

Unfortunately as we had limited time to catch the ferry to Gigha we didn't have sufficient time to explore. Would definitely recommend this place. Beds were outstanding comfortable, had the best sleep

The staff were friendly and helpful and the ensuite room fully equipped to meet my needs. A big plus is the ability to socialise with other guests in the evening and over breakfast in the shared kitchen/dining/living area. Also the venue is dog friendly - an absolute must given the surrounding environment.

Tips:

During the winter season there are limited venues open in the vicinity. So, if you don't want to travel to/fro Campbeltown you can do some self catering in the communal kitchen/dining area.

EVERYTHING… staff were attentive and we didn’t need or want for anything. Everything had been extremely thought out . No guest staying there would feel like they weren’t staying in their own home. The nightlight / torch was absolutely the perfect touch to lighting and in an emergency if needing to go out to your car in the darkness of Scottish nights. I’ve even now ordered one for my home. The breakfast was absolutely so fresh and cooked to perfection. We met up with some friends and the dogs ( clan of spaniels) were also made to feel at home.

Tips:

West port beach is an absolute must to go to and the Springbank distillery has some of Scotland best whisky. The washback bar was a great place to have a hot chocolate while my husband had a wee dram

The house and post office are a fabulous location to base yourself when exploring this area of Scotland, the staff here are knowledgeable regarding the area and its close proximity to its closest islands, beaches, coastline & villages. And historical landmarks Make for an unforgettable experiance.

Easy access from key box at front door. Room was large and cosy. Bed firm and comfortable. Tea and coffee provided with biscuits. Milk in the fridge in the shared living/dining/kitchen area. En-suite was a good size with a large shower. Our only negative would be the noise the toilet made when flushed. Our breakfast was included in the price and was taken in the café. Cereal, yogurt and fruit as well as a choice of hot roll was good. We will stay here again when visiting the area.

Tips:

If travelling out of season check where you can eat as many places are closed. Glenbarr advised us to book a table at a nearby hotel, which we did. The Argyll Hotel serves excellent home made food and is dog friendly.

Jody and her team deserve a lot more than 5! We were greeted by name in the shop and soon taken through to the garden centre for a welcome brew. The set up is unusual in a very good way. Shops selling local produce, a garden centre with cafe and choice of sitting inside or out or in the huge greenhouse with plants! As Glenbarr is a bit of a way from places to eat we made use of the excellent kitchen to heat food from the shop. We liked the living area and it made conversation with other guests easy. Everything fresh and bright. Breakfast was good with all we hoped for including friendly service.

Tips:

We loved exploring Kintyre, though would have enjoyed it more if the roadworks to the lighthouse had been completed at the time of our trip. Campbeltown had plenty of places to visit. The heritage centre is charmingly old-fashioned with fascinating artefacts and a great Kintyre welcome. We liked the tranquility of the Linda McCartney memorial garden behind the cinema. Just a drive along the loch side is atmospheric and picturesque.

We loved Glenbarr as a quiet little village with access to a fantastic beach only minutes away. The general coastline and area is stunning especially in the beautiful weather we had on our trip. One slight comment we would make on breakfast is that there was not enough choice, especially if one is a vegetarian, what we had was nice enough but could have been a little better.

In the evenings we sat in the grounds of the accommodations garden centre to have some drinks and snacks. Was lovely sitting inside the seated area of the greenhouse for some protection against the wind. Try driving to Southend to The Muneroy stores/tearooms.

The House at Glenbarr was perfect for our short break, facilities were excellent , beautifully appointed rooms, and the use of a lounge and full kitchen if needed. The shop was really beautifully laid out with a fabulous selection of basics as well as lots of lovely treats /gifts. Breakfast in the cafe was superb and every single member of the team we interacted with was friendly and helpful ,we couldn’t have wished for a more pleasant stay ! We even returned home with a boot full of ceramic pots from the garden centre! Thank you to everyone at Glenbarr, you are bound to go from strength to strength, we hope to return sooner rather than later ! .

Lovely overnight stay at this unique property .We stayed mid week and so could only have a continental breakfast but this was lovely and we opted for the bacon rolls .The room was beautifully furnished and the private bathroom across the hall was surprisingly not a problem . The property has a garden centre and shop and in the evening we took our own picnic dinner to the large green house and enjoyed the evening without midge attack .The green house has tables and chairs and a sofa for use with the cafe during the day but for guest to enjoy at night . We didn’t use the kitchen facilities but had a look round and there seemed to be everything we could need . Will stay again when on Kintrye and would recommend this establishment to any fellow travellers.

Tips:

Great evening meal available 2.8 miles away at the Argyll Hotel ,situated on the beach .Though would recommend trying the green house experience on site.

Seafood platter not as good as before , pickled onions not a good match with seafood and breakfast not as good as before, was always nice to come for breakfast to table set and good choice of options-favourite was scrambled eggs and smoked salmon which is no longer available which was a disappointment. Housekeeping in bedrooms is perfection, cleanliness in whole house is excellent.

Tips:

A trip to Gigha is always a must with a visit to The Boathouse for seafood lovers as is the Seafood Cabin at Skipness. Campbeltown has good restaurants and cafes too and the fabulous Picture House is a must for film lovers. Glenbarr is the perfect location for catching ferries to Islay and Jura and also Arran.

Staff were incredibly welcoming and friendly. There was a great selection of breakfast items each morning (croissants were amazing!) and on the day of departure we had a breakfast bag made up for us as we were leaving early. Lovely shop and garden centre attached to accommodation. Tea and coffee facilities were provided in the room. Nice to see local businesses supporting each other - handwash and other products were made locally. Plenty of current local guides/leaflets available. Great location for exploring Kintyre. We had a very relaxing experience here and will definitely be back.

Tips:

Best food we had was in the Glen Bar in Carradale and the Argyll Hotel just five minutes down the road from Glenbarr. The paninis and soup at the garden centre were delicious and great value for money. There is a Tesco and Co-op in Campbeltown. Highly recommend a trip down to Southend. Saddell Abbey and Castle provided a nice walk and a bit of history.

Tips:

Perfect location for visiting Jura, Islay and Gigha and Arran. Beautiful beaches are within easy reach of Glenbarr as are the village of Tarbert and the “wee toon” Campbeltown. Golf lovers and whisky enthusiasts are well catered for in and around the nearby islands. Areas of ancient archaeological interest are also present in abundance in surrounding areas. The beautiful Kintyre coastline is the most pleasing place to explore and never disappoints.

Tips:

The Argyll Hotel is only 5 minutes drive away and does decent food. We also ate out at the Skipness Seafood Cabin. Recommend a day trip to Gigha as a foot passenger and also the walk across the causeway to Davaar Island (if the tide times permit).

The rooms are lovely and clean with more than enough room. Lots of storage to put/hang your clothes. The bathrooms are decent size with fresh fluffy towels and bath robes. Staff are very friendly, welcoming and helpful. The staff are great with dogs, which helps when you have a slightly nervous dog. The breakfast are super and very filling. It's more than just a place to stay with the shop, post office, garden centre and cafe!

Tips:

Glenbarr is 30ish mins from Campbeltown and Tarbert. Tarbert has lovely harbor with nice shops. The last deli in Tarbert has really nice food and ice creams. There is loads of beaches near by glenbarr so you don't have to travel far. There is a dog friendly place to eat about 5 mins away called Argyll hotel in bellochantuy. The food is lovely at the at the argyle hotel, plus they have a good range of gin's & whiskey's. The sunset while sitting outside the argyle hotel is spectacular. The ferry to Gigha is about 10 mins away from Glenbarr. The ferry leaves on the hour from the mainland and half hour from Gigha. The ferry takes about 12 cars at a time. The carpark isn't huge on the mainland. There is lots to do on Gigha from renting bikes to paddle boards or just walk to a beach. I would recommend going to Keil. The beaches there are stunning, then again nearly all the beaches in kintyre are stunning.

Beautiful bed and breakfast in a very peaceful location. Lovely breakfast and very friendly staff. We would come back here if in the area again

Tips:

The shop and cafe are lovely but only open until 5 in the summer months so you will need to plan ahead and book dinner nearby as the nearest hotel (about 3 miles away) was fully booked the 2 nights we stayed. Not a problem if you are willing to drive further for dinner. There is a lovely shared lounge and kitchen area to eat if you order platters from the cafe to have at night when you return to the house.

The house and room were exceptionally clean and quiet. Highly recommended.

Tips:

I marked location as 3 as it was not the area that I had hoped to be staying in as I had work commitments in another town which was 40 mins north and there is very little nearby - which may be of strong appeal to other guests. This is not a negative comment on the location itself though as the views and area near the house are world class and I wish that I had longer there to enjoy them.

Tips:

After they close, the café seating is available out the back which was great on a sunny evening but there's also seating inside the greenhouse area too. Twenty minutes walk down to the beach at the caravan site with views to Islay and Jura. Shop has nice selection of cheese and smoked foods. Platters were ideal for our appetite, but you'd need one per person as a main course for evening meal. Enjoyed the experience . If coming this way again would definitely book. We had Hay loft which was en suite.

Such a fantastic, lovely place to stay, everything has been thought of to make your stay as comfortable as possible and the staff are so helpful and welcoming. We stayed in the Hayloft, which truly is a 'home from home', very comfy and cosy with a separate kitchen area that is equipped with a microwave, a twin induction hob, a small fridge even a little table and chairs. There's also a roomy cosy seating area. The alpaca bedding helped us to have the best nights sleeps in ages! The cafe serves beautiful fresh food that caters for gluten-free and vegetarian diets, and the staff are great!

Tips:

Be sure to visit the beach at Westport which is only 5 mins down the road towards Campbeltown.

Great instructions for stay, beautifully decorated and comfortable beds and furnishings. Loved the kitchen and dining area downstairs. Not sure how I’d feel about being a lone traveller with shared facilities however not a deal breaker and could have felt like a posh hostel if there had been lots of others staying.

Tips:

Take your own food or order a platter as there are not other facilities for miles around. Pretty hamlet although we didn’t really explore. Very friendly people in the shop next morning.

We were delighted to have found this place. It exceeded our expectations for the quality and range of facilities in a single location and provided a great base for us to explore the area. The accommodation had been designed with care to provide a high level of comfort, style and modernity within the spacious ensuite and guest lounge/kitchen/dining areas. The on-site shop is well-stocked and proved very useful. The cafe where we had breakfast is worth a trip in itself. The outdoor seating in the greenhouse was an added bonus. In all, an excellent experience.

Tips:

Plan ahead for eating out or self-catering. It is advisable to find out where is open and book ahead, or order freshly prepared food from the hosts in advance - the shop and cafe close at 4.30pm. Be aware that you might not get a mobile signal here. Take your time to find out about the many scenic and historical sights worth visiting.

Lovely accommodation, immaculately clean and stylishly presented. We had everything we needed including access to a fridge plus extras like board games which is a nice touch. The breakfast was delicious and the staff friendly and interested.

Tips:

We had booked with the intention of going to a local(ish) restaurant that was unfortunately then closed due to Covid. We therefore arrived later and had to leave to get the return ferry the next morning so didn’t really see the local area. Bring your own wine (we brought our own food but noticed very tasty looking platters for other guests in the fridge that you can order from the cafe).

Loved the idea of being in a bed and breakfast next door to a garden centre with cafe. Having a communal lounge/kitchen was a bonus and gave us an opportunity to meet/chat with other guests. A really quiet location away from the main road. The staff were very friendly and helpful to us and we would certainly recommend it and we hope to return to see more of beautiful Kintyre.

Tips:

Lots of places to visit on both east and west Kintyre including Campbeltown. Obviously you need a car or other vehicle. Quite a number of the roads on the east and south are single track but if you take it steady it's ok. There are places to eat around the island but it is best if you book ahead (especially at the moment). We visited the Mull of Kintyre, Campbeltown, Peninver, Saddel, Carradale, Skipness, Machrihanish (long beach and village).

This is my third time staying in Glenbarr this year and it has been a gem of a find. The rooms are beautifully decorated, beds are extremely comfortable and the bathrooms are spotless. Not only are the rooms fantastic but each morning you are welcomed by the friendly staff in the cafe to enjoy a delicious breakfast that sets you up for the day. The house is set in the stunning area of Glenbarr with a beautiful beach at the bottom of the road. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!

Very friendly, helpful staff. Lovely food platters to order and nice breakfasts. Bedding of very high quality. perhaps because of time of year not all that much in garden centre although I did buy 1 plant to remind me of my visit. If I had anything negative to say my heart sank when I saw the unkempt property opposite the shop but don't suppose you can do anything about that. Maybe show them this review !!

Tips:

No places to eat out for miles so I would suggest having a main meal out at lunch time and order a platter for evening. You can keep your wine chilled in the kitchen fridge and there are glasses supplies. The kitchen is spotless.

The accommodation in The Hay Loft was excellent. Really couldn't fault this lovely place. Although the Hay Loft is dog free - due to it being on the upper floor and that you have to go upstairs to access it which normally in it self it not a problem but as dogs are allowed in all the other rooms they have to access the stairs to get to their rooms also. Because of this and due to my allergy to dogs did cause my allergy to flare up. Liz in the shop was very helpful and friendly nothing is too much trouble for her. The bistro cafe served up great food but again my concern was with dogs being allowed into this area. The staff in the bistro were courteous, efficient and friendly. I would have preferred to have wooden floors in the other bedrooms and landing and stairs as feel it would be easier to maintain what with dog hairs. This would be my only reason for not returning to this lovely little gem.

Tips:

We visited Southend, Muneroy's for cake and coffee, Machrihanish Beach and the Gauldrons. A short trip to Saddell Abbey and visited the Anthony Gormeley statue. A wonderful peaceful visit and was blessed with wonderful weather for most of our visit. Good food at the Old Clubhouse in Machrihanish would defo recommend and reasonably priced. Everything within a 20-30 minute drive - We didn't get onto Davaar Island due to the tide timings but defo next time.

We enjoyed the breakfast and were really impressed at how accommodating the staff were to our dog! Thank you for such a great time.

Tips:

We stayed at GlenBarr for four nights and we got the platter for dinner which was tasty. I recommend that if you are staying for more than one night then to book a restaurant either in Tarbert or Campbelltown. Also, Gigha is well worth a visit.

The whole place is spotless and very tasteful throughout. Bedding and towels lovely quality. There is a very nice open plan kitchen/ lounge area with tv and dining table for guests to use. We were also invited to take advantage of the outside areas after the garden centre closes. Although a cooked breakfast isn’t on offer, we had plenty to eat in the lovely cafe and was left a packed breakfast on request as we were leaving early the next morning. Would not hesitate to stay again.

Tips:

Pubs and restaurants on Kintyre are few and far between so booking essential for eating out. Campbeltown has a fish and chip shop and a Chinese takeaway along with a few pubs. Lovely views of Arran driving the B842 though single track roads and quite challenging driving in places. Target is worth a visit and lovely views from the castle.

Obviously housekeeping are ghosts as they're neither seen nor heard but the place is immaculate. There is everything you require in the accommodation, hairdryer, body wash, tea,coffee biscuits etc. You can make hot drinks in both your room or kitchen and dining area. Garden centre next door where breakfast is served at the moment. Continental or cooked if you prefer. Good choice of food on offer. The shop also can provide ready prepared food to be left for you. Platter plates can be made and left for you in the house. All delicious and all from local sources. Excellent quality of ingredients. Staff are polite and friendly with a happy demeanour which shows they are happy in their work. We will be back again. We shall also recommend to others.

The seafood shack for all kinds of fish. Tarbet for a nice wander around. Gigha for a short visit if time is restricted.Killbery for a drive if the weather is not as good. The Glenbarr garden centre for lunches and afternoon coffee and cakes.

Each morning we were given a great choice for breakfast and the quality of good was unbelievable. We also thoroughly enjoyed a couple of platters one evening in the garden and again all the food was delicious.

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.

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.

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 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!

We had a nice lunch at Amelia's cafe, Campbeltown. We loved the beaches near the House.

The accommodation was lovely and comfortable. What a great idea to have the breakfast left for us in the house to have at our leisure. All in all a lovely place to stay and would definitely recommend to anyone if you’re in that part of the world.

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

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.

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.

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.

We had a lovely stay, very clean and comfortable. Decent breakfast, loved the Gigha milk. It felt homely. Only downfall is not having wifi code in the room.

Tips:

Cute location, close to Tarbert and Campbletown, pretty beaches nearby, the shop is well stocked. Ideal if you have a car.

Thank you for your kind review, just one point, the WiFi code is on both the router in the sitting room & on the welcome note in each room. We’ll make sure that this is clearer for future guests though.

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.

Exceptionally clean and staff went out their way to attend to special dietary needs.

Tips:

Book your evening meal if you are eating out. There are only a few hotels on the island for food and all were booked out. There is a great restaurant in Campbelltown called 'Food for thought' excellent food. Difficult to get mobile phone reception, however free WiFi in accommodation.

Comfortable rooms in a great location for exploring Kintyre and the islands. Very friendly and helpful service. Great continental breakfast with freshly baked pastries.

Tips:

Ferry to Gigha is a short drive away and well worth a visit to the island with it's coral beaches. Campbeltown and Machrihanish about 10 miles away with a few restaurants. Coffee shop in the hotel is great too.

Really great staff. Very helpful. Great efficiency. Lovely bread and croissant for the breakfast in addition to the cereals provided. Smart and stylish room with excellent shower room and well equipped kitchen diner.

Tips:

With the delightful local store, garden centre and cafe adjoining the building you have three little trips out in one. Have a blow at Westport it is an amazing sweep of a beach. Think about using any of the ferry routes to get to Kintyre. All have lovely scenery and it feels like a real get away.
