We stayed here on the cowal way. The hosts were extremely welcoming and helpful, they even drove us to the local pub because of the rain! The house is nice and breakfast was fantastic. Highly recommended to others looking for somewhere to stay in the area.

Rob and Sheila are the most warming and pleasant hosts you can ask for. The breakfast is first class, home made bread, and yoghurts with stewed fruit, The best kippers in Scotland(Loch Fyne) award winning bacon and sausage and free range eggs. The house is a wonderful property and when you arrive you are encouraged that you can have free...

Once found the Old Manse is one of those quite different but most pleasant experiences. Forget trappings of modern life, barely a mobile signal, no TV , wi- fi or tea coffee in room but it really didn't matter this B&B is delightful . Real leaf tea and strainer arrived in pot and china on tray with home made cake...

I stayed in the Old Manse for a night during my walk of the Cowal Way. The warm welcome when I got there, very wet and tired, was just wonderful and was so much appreciated! Rob and Sheila offered marvellous hospitality; they were cheerful and thoughtful hosts. The breakfast was first class, really excellent, with an emphasis on terrific home...

The Old Manse at Strachur owned by Ron and Sheila Macpherson is a pleasure to visit. Their hillside home looking towards Loch Fyne is full of charming furniture and objects that must reflect the interests they have pursued in their rich lives together. The breakfast will surely delight you but the memory of Rob's rendition of Edwin Morgans' poem about...

This place is fantastic. The owners are exceptionally welcoming and just superb at looking after you during your stay. We got a lift to the wedding we were going to on a wet day, a cosy bedroom and a stunning breakfast (including a poetry reading). I would reccommend this to anyone who loves a great breakfast and an interesting place...

The house and rooms are wonderful and the surrounding area is beautiful. This is the perfect place from which to explore Loch Fyne. Rob and Sheila are tremendous hosts and made us feel most welcome. We can't wait to go back.

We had a wonderful stay at the Old Manse. Rob and Sheila are such a delightful couple and great hosts. We were greeted with a warm smile and an even warmer sitting room where a roaring fire awaited us. Breakfast was extremely scrummy each day with homemade yogurts, jams, fruits and oatcakes as well as locally sourced meat, fish plus...

If you're looking for a cosy, comfortable, rustic getaway, with open fires and a personal touch stamped on everything from the decor and service to the food and company, then I would highly recommend the Old Manse. The owners, Rob and Sheila, literally welcomed us into their home, in every way, and my boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed the experience...
