WELCOME TO RONEBHAL GUEST HOUSE,
West Coast of Scotland
Sally & John look forward to welcoming you to Ronebhal, a 4 star Guest House on the shores of Loch Etive. Looking out over the Lynn of Lorn in beautiful Connel, we are 5 miles from the bustling and pretty town of Oban, ‘The Gateway to the Isles’ which is famous as the seafood capital of Scotland. Our guest house was built in the early 20th century with well-proportioned rooms, high ceilings and retains many original character features; the front-facing rooms, including the dining room, lounge and two deluxe bedrooms all have bay windows with stunning views across to Dunstaffnage, Morvern and the Isles of Mull & Lismore.
Behind the Edwardian façade, you will find an extremely comfortable, warm and relaxing house with all the benefits we have come to expect in our modern lives while retaining its essential character. The sitting room is stocked with shelves of books for you to enjoy during your stay. Here you can relax and immerse yourself in the scene before you; sea otters, seals, herons, oyster catchers, and yachts setting off from the moorings opposite. Catch the sun slowly sinking behind the mountains of Mull & Morvern for a spectacular sunset. There is a pair of binoculars on the windowsill should something catch your eye.
We have free Wi-Fi, with a strong signal in all rooms and public areas, so the lounge is a great place to relax and catch up on your media and emails. Throughout the house we have many original artworks and sculpture by contemporary artists to help you unwind and enjoy your break with us. There is free off-road parking for cars and bikes both motorised and pedal-powered. We are within 10 minutes walking distance from Connel Ferry railway station on the Glasgow/Oban line and buses to a variety of destinations stop opposite the house. The name Connel Ferry refers to the days when there was no road bridge across Loch Etive and a ferry used to work its way back and forth across the strong tides of the sea loch. Today the bridge does the job and also provides a great viewing platform for the Falls of Lora - a tidal overfall which runs at 12 knots creating spectacular whirlpools and eddies according to the state of the tide which is 5 minutes walk from the house.
There are more detailed pricing information & descriptions with pictures of each of the six rooms in the ‘Rooms & Rates’ but as a rough guide our prices vary between £45 and £60 per person per night including a non-vegetarian or vegetarian breakfast to set you up for the day.
