The
Experience

A remote and rugged setting with much comfort indoors. Stephanie and Adrian are a creative, well-travelled pair and their house is packed with warmth and interest, including local art for sale. Be welcomed by home cooking, sink into the views from the sun lounge, sleep soundly in luxurious, very quiet bedrooms. Breakfasts with a delicious twist will set you up for a wonderful day walking in the footsteps of the first Scots through this fascinating history-steeped landscape. Explore the beach, sea loch and woods, discover ‘Britain’s most beautiful short cut by sea’ and from there sail to the Corryvreckan.

Reviews

Winterton was without question the best B and B we have ever stayed in. Wonderful hosts, superb breakfasts! And the most beautiful home in breathtaking scenery. We will certainly be back!!! Thank you to Stephanie and Adrian x x

Trish, London

Thanks to Sawdays for alerting us to Winterton where we stayed last weekend. And thanks to our lovely hosts who were such great company, allowing us to completely retreat but who made us feel so looked after at the same time. We will be back soon. Thanks again x

Andrew, London

Adrian and Stephanie were the perfect hosts, they seem to be the perfect team, Stephanie cooking and Adrian advising on the area and places to visit. Stephanie cooked breakfast which was as good as the view - breathtaking, and we were also fortunate enough to enjoy two evening meals which were outstanding. The quality of our room mattress, bedding, towels, shower facilities etc were all first class and tastefully presented. We highly recommend a visit to Winterton. Better value for money would be difficult to find. We would give them a 10 out of 10!! We will definitely be back

Stuart, Munich

We had the most lovely time. We stayed for three nights and our hosts, Adrian and Stephanie were an absolute delight. Their setting is an oasis of tranquility and calm. Stunning views abound. There is lots to explore and our hosts gave us lots of ideas and local insights. Our bedroom was beautiful and tastefully laid out. The living room is cosy and welcoming. They have local art on their walls which we thought a lovely touch. The food Adrian and Stephanie prepares is truly outstanding. The breakfast was top class, and they made a lovely evening meal on our first night. We will be back!

David, Brighton

We were embraced by Stephanie's and Adrians geniality! A true hidden secret and recommendation! Plus 5 stars for the whole area and it's history, the house and rooms, Stephanie's cookeries... Everything was fantastic down to the smallest detail. We spent the most wonderful time with them and wished we could have stayed longer! Don't miss it! ;)

Julia, Berlin

Winterton is a truly special place, comfortable, relaxed and cosy with lovely modern bedrooms. Stephanie and Adrian are wonderful hosts and couldn't be more helpful. The locally sourced breakfasts are delicious and Adrian is more than happy to pass on his knowledge of the local area, it's history and walks. We would recommend Winterton unreservedly and intend to visit again ourselves when time allows

  • On our doorstep is SEA LOCH CRINAN where you can while away the hours beach combing along miles of sand when the tide is out, looking out towards the isles of JURA, SCARBA and MULL and splashing through shallow pools.
  • Not far from Winterton is MOINE MHOR nature reserve (one of Britain's finest peat-bog habitats for all kinds of flora and fauna). Walk or cycle along the famous CRINAN CANAL between Crinan and Ardrishaig - 14km in total.
