Second year on Mull and second time in Clansman Cottage at Pennyghael. A delight to return everything just as good as last year - very clean, comfortable beds, plenty of hot water and heating. Great location and ideal base for day hikes, seeing other parts of island and beaches. Very comfortable cottage everything you need.

Tips:

Definitely visit Iona and Ulva. Also Staffa, Tobermory area and climb Ben More. Isle of Mull Weavers at Ardalanish. Explore as many walking routes as possible especially ones that take you to deserted beaches - well worth the trek.

Ideal setting and loved the cottage. Great to be able to use hotel facilities. A first class escape. All hotel staff friendly and helpful.

Tips:

Went on the wild safari with Brian which was a great day out spoilt by rain and midges!! Nice packed lunch and liked the ‘scope’ which for me saved the day! Saw whitetail eagles, golden eagle on nest with chick and an otter in the loch. Went across to Iona and went to the south end of the island to Port Bhan. There was a recording ongoing which we heard was for Songs of praise and a lady was singing her heart out on the top of one of the rocks!!

Lovely clean cottage very comfortable and warm plenty of space and stunning Loch view. Geographically situated in best part of island in our opinion and having the hotel on site as well is perfect for an extra person who may want to join you at some point.

Tips:

Climb Ben More; swim in Loch Scridain right outside cottage; loads of other places for swimming; a day at least on Iona; trip to Staffa and Fingal’s Cave; Calgary Bay and Art in Nature trail wonderful art gallery and cafe; Carsaig and The Arches; Lochbuie; Tobermory Lighthouse - information for walking routes readily available in guide books or on internet or just ask the locals - not enough time to do everything so a second visit is essential. Patronise local shops for supplies this is a truly wonderful place and somewhere to return to many times over.

The cottage was everything that we wanted. The location and views of the loch were fantastic The cottage was clean with a modern feel. It was well equipped and only lacked a DVD player Meals at the hotel were excellent, especially the mussels. Will come again and would recommend to friends. Thanks for all your help. Michael

Tips:

Birding - Try Bryan Rains at "Wild about Mull" - we found him to be good - saw everything we wanted,inc Golden & White Tailed Eagle & Harriers. Birding - Use Turus Mara to go on the Staffa & Treshnish Isles boat tour - the puffins and auks were 100% - we also had very good dolphin views. Dinners - The Hotel is very good.

Unbeatable location lochside with spectacular beaches and drives on hand. Wildlife in abundance if you have patience. Good solid home cooking and friendly helpful owners/staff. Mull is without Skye’s overcrowded roads.

Tips:

Get on some of the minor, very minor, roads for spectacular scenery. You will drive slowly because they are very narrow, very bumpy but well worth the effort. You will probably got to Iminutes down the road. As you walk down to the ferry (ten minute crossing) note the tiny fish shack on the left. Stop on the way back for outstanding fresh shellfish.

It was lovely to be back again and very hard to leave this beautiful island. Returning to the hotel to your fantastic hospitality and wonderful food is always a great treat. Staying in the cottage this time and having dinner most nights in the restaurant worked really well for us and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip.

Tips:

A trip to Staffa and then to Lunga to see the Puffins is great. Iona is such a special and peaceful place and wonderful to visit.

The cottages enjoy an enviable location on the shore of Loch Scridain, with fabulous views all around. Wildlife such as eagles and otters can be seen from the cottage doorstep! Spacious and well equipped, with plenty of parking outside, the cottages are the perfect base from which to explore Mull, especially the southern side of the Isle. With a licensed restaurant in the hotel attached, and the owners living on site, you have pretty much everything you could wish for during your stay.

Tips:

I always recommend the local wildlife guide Bryan Rains (Wild About Mull) as someone to show you the wildlife early in your stay, plus the Mull Charters' white-tailed eagle boat trip is an absolute must. The Mull Eagle Watch is just across the loch too, if you're there whilst the eagles are nesting.

We stayed in the lovely, self catering Pine Cottage. It was beautifully clean and fully equipped. We were made very welcome by the owners Tony, Joy and Paul and their staff. The location is magnificent, overlooking Loch Sridain and Ben More. Great for wildlife and bird watching. This is a very peaceful and relaxing venue, with the added benefit of enjoying an evening meal at the hotel. The food was excellent quality and cooked to perfection by Tony the owner. I would definitely recommend eating in the restaurant. This is an exceptional place to stay and possibly the best location on Mull.

Tips:

I would recommend eating in the hotel restaurant. Try the mussels and the venison!

Had an amazing stay here. Our two children (8&6) loved it. They had a great time down on the loch side morning and evening and did not ask for the TV to be put on once. The views across the loch are fantastic and saw sea eagles twice flyng over the water. There was an oystercatcher nesting just up from the cottage and the kids loved keeping an eye on the parents to make sure they were still sitting on the nest. Cottage worked well, good facilities and well stocked. Plenty of room for storage and living. The outdoor seating was great until about 9pm. The staff were really good and did not mind us popping in for pudding to take away late on.

Tips:

The beaches down on the south coast are well worth a visit, water cold and clear and sand beautiful. Mull weavers also good and then head down to their beach before back for an ice cream. They also have a freezer of local produce to buy. The best bit of road and beach (according to me) is the road to Loch Buie. Once at the end of the road there is parking and an honesty shop. Then head round the bay to the beach to your left (when facing the sea) - this was the warmest water we found and fantastic beach and walk to it.

Beautiful, quiet, peaceful location with a view across across Loch Scridain. The cottage (Clansman) was very clean and well equipped; comfortable bed and sofas. We had a delicious meal in the Pennyghael Hotel Restaurant. Tony, Joy and Paul were very helpful and friendly. Thank you very much for a lovely stay.

Tips:

Mull is a beautiful, unspoilt, uncommercialised island. We were blessed with glorious weather enhancing our opinion but really enjoyed our trip to Staffa (especially recommended if it is the time if year for puffins nesting), Visit to Iona, Loch Buie, Calgary Beach, Duart Castle and Tobermory. Enjoyed meal at Pennyghael Hotel and at Ninth Wave. Also enjoyed snack lunches at the seafood bar at Fionnport.

We had a wonderful stay at Pennyghael, the lock is right outside your front door where u can watch the wildlife. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Isle of Mull is a beautiful place to visit, we will to back and back to Pennyghael.

Tips:

My tip is if you have a 12/13 hour journey make sure you put the cap,on your water bottle in your engine otherwise you blow your head gasket and breakdown making it 18 1/2 hours, was still worth every hour!!!

We really enjoyed our stay at Pine Cottage and thank you for your advice on our arrival regarding the cottage etc and for your friendliness. We really enjoyed our 3 evening meals with you and our 3 breakfasts. Plus a real big thank you for the surprise birthday cake you had made for me and the balloons put up in the restaurant. A lovely touch! The beds in the cottage were very comfortable, and the views of the sunsets on the loch from the cottage were to die for!

Tips:

We really enjoyed our sea trip to Staffa, although there are a lot of steep steps to climb from the boat. The trip to Iona was also lovely and we stayed longer catching a different boat back so that we could have a good look around. Plus the weather turned out to be beautiful, so that helped. The nearest pub/restaurant to the cottage is the Argyll Arms at Bunessan, a good 15 minute car ride away, but we didn't have an evening meal there, just a drink on our way back from the sea trip.

Accommodation suited our needs perfectly and we enjoyed convenience of being able to eat breakfast and dinner. Views were stunning and seal spotting and otter spotting over our breakfast was a real highlight. Would recommend better quality jams/real butter on plates, more sauce options with steaks (eg mushroom/cream sauce) and better quality towels. These are just very minor points though and would recommend you to others!

Made to feel extremely welcome on arrival. Booking process was easy, with the recommendation of Pine Cottage being very appropriate. Even our dog was made welcome (with no extra charge). Cottage was immaculate, very well appointed and provisioned. Also warm, which was welcome given the weather!. Tony was very approachable, and amenable to particular requests. Fantastic location, outdoor facilities and gardens. If you're looking for a relaxed, comfortable self-catering break, be sure to 'speak to Pennyghael re the Pine and Clansman cottages. Linda and Iain (& Sasha)

Tips:

The main street has restaurants offering multicultural dining, including, of course, the freshest of local seafood. Try the Hotel for a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. The Island of Mull is beautiful as it is, but is also rich with opportunities to appreciate wildlife, cruise, fish, walk, and for fellow Munroists, there is of course Ben Mor! Enjoy Mull!
