Knap Guest House, Tarbert
My husband and I were very happy with our stay at Knap Guest House and only regret that it was so short. The manager was very accommodating of our late check-in and early checkout. When we finally arrived, we had a very nice, clean, and warm room waiting for us. Should we find ourselves in Tarbert again, we would definitely return to Knap Guest House.

A Great Place!
The Knap Guest House is a gem. We stayed here our first night in Scotland and were impressed by the hospitality of Alistair, the owner. The place is quiet, clean, and located close to the harbor (which we could see from our window) and choice of restaurants. There is a co-op grocery store right across the street, although its not a necessity since Alistair cooks an awesome breakfast!!!

Good accommodation and a fantastic host.
Excellent breakfast and nice banter with Alistair. Room and view from it was fantastic, we will be returning.

Close to the harbour
Alistair is a welcoming mine host and breakfast chef! The B&B is close to the harbour and a short walk to bars and restaurants. The starfish restaurant is well worth a visit for local seafood. The room we had #3 had good facilities, although was a little on the small side for a couple with 2 cases. Note that although parking is free, it is a short walk to the B&B, which may affect those with heavy luggage, similarly all rooms are 1 or 2 flights of stairs up, there is no lift. Not a problem for us, but may affect some. All in all a quaint and well located stop over.
