We love dogs and we are very happy to welcome friendly adult dogs and their owners.

Powdermills is ideal for dogs. It has slate floors with rugs and direct access out into our secure 10-acre garden. We have established routes around the grounds that are perfect for an early morning or early evening walk with your dog.


If you want to walk your dog off-lead you can drive south to Ardcastle, and park in the forestry commission car park. It is a 15-minute drive and has miles of off-lead walking.

Don’t look now – Summer has arrived in Argyll!

The last week has suddenly felt like the middle of summer here at Powdermills Bed & Breakfast. It is as if we have missed out Spring and all the April Showers!  Of course, in Scotland it is just as likely to be snowing tomorrow. But for now, the clear skies have kick started life in […]

Close Encounters of the Third Kind

1 April 2019

I was driving home to Powdermills, Furnace via Dalmally and Inveraray last week when I turned the corner and was faced with this view. It was stunning and reminded me of the movie ‘Close Encounters of the Third Kind’. We are becoming blase at the beautiful scenery that we enjoy in Argyll. And it was […]
