I welcome guests to my seashore home on the lovely little Isle of Luing, on the west coast of Scotland (30 min drive from Oban to Luing ferry; only a 3 min crossing, the shortest car ferry in Scotland!) The Fladda room has stunning sea views.
Breakfast and Wi-Fi are included in price and there are no added cleaning fees. The space is not safe or suitable for children or pets.
Our car ferry currently operates during the day 7 days a week.
No public transport.
I have three guest rooms in a wing of the house that is separate from the part of the house where I live with my husband. The Isle of Luing twin en-suite Fladda Room is a pretty little upstairs room with two single beds and a small en-suite shower/wc room. It is bright and attractively furnished.
You have a fantastic view of the seashore from the bedroom; you can watch fishing boats and yachts passing by, and spot wildlife.
The house is a traditional building but modern and bright and warm inside. The building has maximum insulation, and you can easily adjust the heating in your room to make sure you are cosy and warm.
There is Wi-Fi in the bedroom and there are tea and coffee-making facilities next to your room. There is Wi-Fi in the bedroom and there are tea and coffee-making facilities next to your room. There are two armchairs and a side table in the room. You have a walk-in wardrobe with full-length mirror, shelves, hanging space, a light and room for your luggage. You will find toiletries in the room.
Accès des voyageurs
As well as having your own room, you are also welcome to sit in the guests' dining-room during the day using the Wi-Fi or consulting our reference books about the area. You will have access to the dining-room between breakfast and evening meal time.
I'm sorry I can't offer self-catering as my kitchen is very small and I need it for cooking my family meals and evening meals for those guests who have ordered them.
Please enjoy our pretty garden with its flower borders and sea-views - take a chair and a cuppa to your chosen spot!
Échanges avec les voyageurs
This is our home, so we are in our part of the house if you need us.
We will be there to welcome you when you arrive and show you round the accommodation. I can show you the walking maps of Luing. And I'll see you if you have an evening meal, and I'll be cooking and serving your breakfast in the morning.
Most people do their own thing the rest of the time, exploring the island.
I look forward to chatting with my guests and hearing their travellers' tales. I can answer all sorts of queries about the area.
Breakfast is included in the price. I serve a full cooked breakfast between 8.30 and 10am; before that, for those of you heading for an early ferry, don't worry, there will be a self-service breakfast (granola, muesli, yoghurt, fruit, tea and coffee).
Please note that I have two other guest rooms upstairs, so there may be folk there during your stay.
There is a patchy mobile/cell phone signal at the property.
As there isn't anywhere to eat out in the evening on this little island most of the time, I am also happy to cook a simple two-course evening meal for you for £13 if you wish (sample menu: braised lamb, mashed potatoes, peas, and Belgian chocolate cheesecake). I can offer this option from Sunday to Friday. On Saturday, meals are usually available at the island restaurant. Please let me know before you arrive.
For those of you who have lunched off Oban's excellent fish and chips, or langoustines or scallops at the Atlantic Islands Centre, and who don't want a full evening meal, I can offer home-made soup and home-made bread for £5. This option is available 7 days a week.
I can do vegetarian meals if you let me know in advance, but if you have other dietary requirements or preferences, please bring your own bread, milk, herbal tea etc.
Sandwiches and hot drinks for lunch can be bought at the shop in Cullipool Monday to Saturday. The Atlantic Islands Centre with museum and restaurant serves lunch daily and is usually doing evening meals on Saturday. Booking is essential for evening meals:
(PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN)
(Phone number and email available after booking room.)
Highly recommended for local seafood; check their website for current menus. May I suggest you place your order before your visit, to avoid disappointment. Contact details above will be made visible by Airbnb after booking.
If you are staying for a week, I will change the bed linen and towels after 4 days if you wish.
Please do ask me if you require anything for your room: extra pillows, extra towels, hairdryer, toiletries, sleep-mask, shower-cap, writing materials, limited printing (10p per sheet), stapler (yes, you'd be surprised what folk ask for!)
Remember to top up with fuel and cash (for shopping and the ferry fare) before you leave Oban. 2017 prices on ferry: £7.40 car; £1.85 per person.
No self-catering and no fridge space, sorry!
The house is in the middle of farmland, so please take off your outdoor shoes and leave them on the rack provided at the door. There is also indoor hanging space for wet or muddy clothes. It has been known to rain on Luing! This keeps the carpets clean for you and my other guests.
Smoking isn't allowed in the house, but we have a den which is the 100-year-old former shop where smokers (and anyone else) can go.
We don't have pets ourselves and regretfully cannot accommodate visiting pets.
Only those guests who have booked and paid are permitted to stay overnight; please let me know if you want to invite anyone during the day.
We cannot accept bookings that include children as the house is not suitable or safe for children under 12. We have no equipment such as high chair, cot, baby bath, toilet aids etc or safety feature such as window bars, stair-gates, electric socket covers, child-proof blind pulls etc.
When driving round the island, stay on the tarmac roads; out of respect for the farm, and for your own safety, do not drive on the unmade farm tracks/dirt roads.

I am semi-retired and enjoy my gardening and photography against the amazing backdrop of the Inner Hebrides.
On holiday I go on solo cycling and camping trips to the Scottish islands, and with my husband we have been spending two months every year for the past five years backpacking and camping in remote parts of Malaysia. We now plan to spend more time travelling in Europe.
