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...

The Byre is really peaceful (apart from the Cockerel!), very clean & well maintained. It is very cosy and well equipped. We were able to have visitors for lunch one day and there was plenty of room for us all. (6 adults and 3 small children!) Beata is very friendly, she makes you feel welcome & relaxed from the moment...

This was our 5th visit to Achaleven Byre - as usual everything was clean and tidy and Beata was her usual accommodating self. We hired bikes and were able to store them in the shed. Liked the cockerels from the next door farm. We would thoroughly recommend the self-catering byre. Roll on our next visit. It is a very convenient...
