Tayvallich, 12 miles from Lochgilphead in Knapdale, mid-Argyll is a welcoming and very special place for holidays and short breaks. Tayvallich has plenty to offer, the village has varied walks including Taynish National Nature Reserve, the renowned seafood restaurant, the Tayvallich Inn, the village shop and cafe, Carsaig beach with sunsets over Jura, boating, fishing, panoramic views and wildlife.

Within a 6 mile radius there are ospreys (in the Summer) , otters, seals, warblers and now also beavers, thanks to the 5 year Scottish Beaver Trial, Keills peninsula, jetty and chapel, forestry walks and old townships to explore.

Here in the Heart of Argyll there is an abundance of History, Water and Nature - the possibilities for families, the energetic, specialist enthusiasts and more leisurely visitors are almost limitless - walking, photography, cycling, riding, boat trips, climbing, diving, canoeing or simple peace and quiet....

Exterior of Auchenbeag

Auchenbeag Bed and Breakfast enjoys an elevated position on what was crofting land known as Auchentenavil - the grazing close to the village.

Auchenbeag - small field - is set on a wooded promontory on the south side of Tayvallich harbour.

We enjoy views of Tayvallich Harbour, Loch Sween and the edge of Taynish oak woodland.

From the sun rise over Loch Sween to the sunset over Jura in the west, the light gives changing colour all day. Roe deer, red squirrel, swallows and woodpeckers are some of our regular garden visitors. Bring your camera and binoculars!

Within easy reach of all the village facilities, Auchenbeag offers peaceful surroundings and the perfect place to relax and enjoy what many people describe as 'the best view ever'.
