Great choice for a stop-over
Our overnight stay was at the start of September 2020 so it was quiet, which was fine for me. The owner was very friendly and made us feel welcome. We had dinner and drinks in the bar (seabass - very tasty!) and chatted with another couple and their dog. There is a large dining hall but the bar had more character so we stayed there. As the weather was behaving itself we could sit outside for a bit and gaze over the water. This was tranquillity - it's so peaceful here. There's not much to Adfern but again that was absolutely fine by me. After a long drive from Mallaig, stopping off at Oban, I was happy for some peace and quiet. There is a sizeable boatyard close by and there was a small (well-behaved) group of young sailing types in the bar but I guess it was out of season perhaps. The room was absolutely fine (the Ghia room I think) and the bed was comfy. The bathroom was a decent size with a large shower. The Galley was a random choice as neither my wife nor I were familiar with this part of the country. I'm so glad we chose to stay here though - lovely place. We would definitely stay here again.
