Julie and Patrick are brilliant hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. Plenty of choice for breakfast and the food is good The guest sitting room is a great place to chill out. The bedroom with en suite is a fine size with tea /coffee facilities. The chocolate and biscuits in the room is a bonus. This is the second time we have stayed there and Julie and Patrick’ s high standards were maintained.

Tips:

Notwithstanding visiting Iona or the puffins there are some fantastic beaches in the area

I highly recommend Caol-Ithe. From the first moment it was obvious this was a special place. The welcome by Julie and Patrick was warm and all relevant information was given with clarity. The dining and lounge areas were spacious and had beautiful views over the island and the decor had been tastefully chosen. Everything looked fresh and attractive The bedroom was spacious and comfortable with a lovely touch of home-baked shortbread. I had the private facilities which included a large bathtub. This guest house is on one level and I appreciated not having to take luggage up several flights of stairs. Also off road parking was a plus. The breakfast was generous, had multiple options and was delicious. Julie and Patrick have the highest standards and are obviously there to accommodate the needs of their guests. They are passionate about good hospitality and certainly carry through with a positive manner to ensure the best experience.

Tips:

Mull is a beautiful island and a wonderful stepping stone to the Isle of Iona. Caol-Ithe is just a five minute walk to the ferry and Iona is well worth a trip or two. I also went on Staffa Trips tour. It was a great morning and the staff very helpful.

I enjoyed everything about the Caol guest house. It is what B&B’s used to be like. It is so nice to actually meet and interact with the owners and the communal living room gave the opportunity to meet other guests. Breakfast was excellent. I hope to return one day and will definitely recommend you to friends.

Nice accommodation in an equally nice area. The hosts were friendly and welcoming; they made a nice breakfast, too.

Tips:

If you're travelling by car from the other side of the island, give yourself plenty of time (at least 2 hours) to get here as the roads are single track and you have to consider the oncoming traffic. Despite Fionnphort's remote location, there is loads to do. Of course, it's ferry terminal can take you to islands of Iona and Staffa, which are highly recommended.

A very warm welcome on arrival plenty of car parking space Beautiful clean and comfortable rooms we had room 4 a very large room for 3 nights. Julie recommended a tour on Iona and Staffa. Patrick is an excellent chef and the breakfast menu is well presented with lots of choices in a dining room with fantastic views. Thank you to both of them.

Tips:

We enjoyed an excellent boat tour of the Islands with Staffa tours they seemed to really enjoy the job and looked after everyone. It’s a busy area and you must BOOK the local pub for dinner which was very good. The Ferries were busy and I booked that in advance. It is a long single track road with passing places around the island so give yourself plenty of time once off the ferry.

I can not recommend or praise Caol-Ithe Guest House highly enough! It was an incredible one night stay - we were sad to leave. At the end of the main road we felt tucked away from foot traffic and still right next to everything: perfect location. Our room was spotless, beyond cozy and comfortable, an absolute pleasure to spend our time in. Wonderful treats were left by our hosts and the fully equipped coffee and tea station in the room allowed us to enjoy the fabulous view from our room window with a hot bev before bed and in the morning. The bathroom was nicer than ours at home - luxurious water pressure and lovely shampoos and soaps! And the breakfast in the morning... absolutely incredible. We were blown away by the whole experience. Thank you so much Julie and Patrick for making our trip so special. We can't wait to visit again.

Tips:

Keel Row pub is wonderful for dinner, and great for a pint outdoors in the sun The Creel Seafood sham is glorious for food as well! Ferry across to Iona is essential if staying for multiple nights!

Wonderful accommodation within sight of Iona Abbey. The hosts are extremely attentive and take great care of every guest. The breakfast was plentiful and lovingly prepared. Everything is thoughtfully furnished and very clean. We would recommend anyone travelling to Iona to book a room there.

Tips:

The village consists of just a few houses. There is a pub where you can also eat very well. However, you should book a table there in advance. This can easily be done online. There is also a small supermarket with a post office. There is a snack bar with a good selection of fish and chips and other seafood right by the ferry landing stage. On Iona we recommend the Rookery Café. The food was excellent and when the weather is nice you can sit in the idyllic garden.

Tips:

Don't forget to book in advance for a meal at The Keel Row - community run pub & restaurant that is very popular. Also try the amazing fish & chips down at the port. Iona is just a ferry away - lovely white sands and turquoise sea at the north end and, of course, the peace and tranquillity of the Abbey. The 9am service is worth getting across for and the sunsets are awesome.

Julie and Patrick were two of the most hospitable hosts we've ever come across. The value for money provided by their service was outstanding - we couldn't believe it. The decor was immaculate and homely. Our room had bathrobes, chocolates, a coffee machine, waterfall shower...if that weren't enough we had access to a sitting area with the most gorgeous view, as well as books/games and a fridge for our own drinks etc. There are also gardens to sit in. The breakfast was delicious and the menu varied. Julie and Patrick also gave us lots of advice about what to do in the area. We would go back anytime 😊

Tips:

There is a coastal walk leading to a bay with an incredible view of Iona at the opposite side of the guesthouse. It was a great way to start our day. Behind the guesthouse are more well directed walks which pass the local beach. The Keel Row pub and restaurant just down the road is a must. We had an excellent night with great service, lovely food, nice people and incredible live music. Regular boat tours to Staff and Iona.

Julie and Patrick are fabulous hosts and provide attention to detail in every aspect. These include home baked shortbread biscuits and truffles in your room and ensure you get the best out of your stay with local information and advice - if needed. Comfortable beds, hot showers and a good breakfast are the pre requisite for a good BB stay and we enjoyed all this and more. A great range of breakfast choices too.

Tips:

Keel Row Pub/restaurant. Community run, friendly and welcoming. Cosy wood burner in the bar area that belts out a good heat which we appreciated after a blustery trip back from Staffa and Iona. ( Staffa Tours for Staffa and Fingals Cave). Really good meal at Keel Row too.

And walked along a lovely beach slow their farm . We did get to Isle of Staffa the second morning and were able to explore the rocks and cave and headland. It was a scenic boat trip.

I particularly appreciated being able to spend 2 nights in another room at a most reasonable rate. It made all the difference for my friend and I to have a break from each other's snoring. We enjoyed chatting to you and admired Julie's wonderful crosswork and patchwork on display. It was good of you to allow us to stay in the accommodation after checkout time.

Tips:

If you want fish and chips in the booth near the ferry, get down there early as at 5.00pm there were no fish and chips left. The Keel Row, although not a very exciting menu, served good, tasty food. There was live music in the pub on our second night, so if that appeals to you check with the pub if there will be music when you stay at Caol - Ithe. Visiting the Abbey on Iona is a must.

Very friendly, accommodating hosts. Couldn't have asked for anything more. Breakfast was the best ever and catered for all our needs. The best hosts we have encountered, thanks for a fabulous stay.

Tips:

The food at the Creel shack was excellent for myself. Had the scampi one evening and the fishcake another. My friend had the lobster on the 2nd occasion but was disappointed, had to send it back as it was cold in the middle. Chips were scrumtious too. Trip to Iona recommended on a sunny day. The beaches, we visited I think all the sandy beaches, but by far the White Sands and Traigh an t-Suidh at the north side are absolutely stunning. You will need a full day to appreciate the whole island if you are a photo fanatic like we are. We went on the 9.55 ferry and returned just after 5pm. There are a few beaches on Mull we also visited, 2 enroute from Craignure to Fionnphort which again are stunning. Uisken and Ardalanish. Fidden and Knockvollogan are close to Caol-Ithe Guest House (our fab base) which again are worth a visit on a sunny day. On our way home, we visited the hide at Fishnish to see if we could spot the local wildlife but we weren't so lucky to see the otters or sea eagles on the day. All in all a fantastic 3 night stay on the Isle of Mull with fantastic hosts at our B&B Caol-Ithe Guest House.

Julie and Patrick are very attentive hosts, nothing is too much trouble and they always have a ready smile. They have great knowledge of the area and are always on hand to help and advise.

Tips:

There’s a few new places opened up for food: Foodie Shack: stone-baked pizzas (you have to pre-order and collect from Fidden Campsite) Pennygate Lodge at Craignure: does the most amazing Sunday lunch Port Nan Ghael at Pennyghael: didn’t get chance to try but always looked busy Lazy Cow: great for coffee and cake, but also does tasty looking meals for lunch

Absolutely loved our stay in Fionnphort in Patrick and Julie’s lovely home! Warm welcome, attentive service and thoughtfulness throughout our stay with lots of delightful touches in our room and in the home as a whole … homemade shortbread, delicious rich chocolates, REAL percolated coffee, etc. Julie & Patrick were also a mine of local information to help us plan our visit to the area. A BIG thank-you for everything. Yes, we will be recommending you!

Tips:

Keel Row is good option and a few paces from the guest house. Reserve before visiting to make sure as it is busy with Iona tourists and passers-through. Simple menu, but with some unique and unusual items, like guinea fowl! Ferry to Iona and back easy access on foot. Do not plan for less than four hours over there, and more if you really want to see the whole island. Lodging is expensive over there and needs to be booked MONTHS ahead of time. Last minute is NOT going to work for there. Stay a while and take the Staffa Tour. Recommended to us by a friend, but needs five hours and we did not have enough time to do it. Can be choppy going out in the wee boat, so not a trip for the faint-hearted, but you get to see Fingal’s Cave and other things!

Patrick and Julie are lovely hosts! The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable with wonderful views. The private bathroom across the hall was superb. I loved having a bath to soak in. I had an accident out on Staffa and hurt my leg and Patrick and Julie couldn't have been more helpful picking me up from the boat so I wouldn't have to walk up hill back to the B&B. They were so kind. The breakfasts are superb as well and I will definitely stay again when back in the area.

Tips:

Cool-Ithe is so convenient to walk down to the ferry and the Creel for takeaway seafood and also the Keel Row for a sit down dinner and drink. There are also many lovely walks down to different beaches as well. Definitely take the ferry over to Iona as well, it makes for a beautiful day wandering.

Caol Ithe is such a good place to stay. Julie and Patrick are so welcoming and helpful. They provide excellent facilities and delicious food in a very good location.

Tips:

Keel Row has very good meals and is in walking distance. We can also recommend the fish chowder at the Creel food caravan by the Iona ferry terminal. The Inn at Pennygael (half an hour before Fionnphort) was also very good. We enjoyed our trip to Iona both for the historical significance of the island and for the walking and beaches. A boat trip with Turus Mara from Ulva Ferry to Staffa (Fingal's Cave) and Treshnish Isles (puffins) was also well worth the drive to get there. Driving the scenic route on our return in the early evening was very pretty. The short drive and walk down to the beach at Knockvologan at low tide was well worth it, but with boots or sturdy shoes.

Julie and Patrick were wonderful hosts. The Caol house was perfect. The rooms were beautiful. We had all four rooms booked for a family vacation and each room was thoughtfully decorated and had everything we needed to feel comfortable. The breakfasts provided were delicious. We were made to feel like special guests. Our hosts gave us advice on trails to walk that were off the beaten path. The area is beautiful, and it’s a short walk to the ferry and then a short ride to Iona, where there are more beautiful beaches to be found. The stay was the highlight of our two week stay in Scotland. Out only regret is not booking more nights at the Caol-Ithe!

Tips:

The ferry to Iona is just a few minutes away. Our family explored the less traveled parts of the island (on a suggestion from our hosts). The pebble beach on the far side of the island is breathtaking, and can be walked in roughly 30 minutes. I would consider it a must see. The short ferry to Iona runs every half hour or so. The Keel Row is a local pub/restaurant about two minutes away from the B&B. It has great food and service. You would be wise to make reservations ahead of time on their website do to the size of the kitchen. The last piece of advice would be to bring plenty of layers as the Scotish weather seems to change by the minute!

The stay was a special treat:Extraordinary good, very tasty cooked breakfast, the ingredients obviously of selected quality for example the make and taste of the strawberry jam. There are only a few rooms, so you feel as if your in a hotel nearly just for yourself. They are very wonderfully kept. In the break- fastroom and lounge you look onto a magnificent landscape. Julie good infos where I might go for a longer or shorter walk. I myself appreciated living there in a thrilling scenery, very quiet surroundings although I was actually in a house an main road, it is a very small village with nowhere to go for ogher people, who don't live there. I liked especially the possibility of going to Iona whenever I liked to. I love my 6-nights-stay there,very refreshing with the superquiet nights with a sound sleep.

Tips:

The Keel Row has a great cider, I liked very much. I somehow didn't manage to make a reservation for eating on time. Just a short walk on a paved way parallel to the street to Bunessan,made for the bikes, there's the bistro-cafe called The Lazy Cow with suberb lunch, cakes etc. A pity I only xame to know it at the last full day of my stay. A walk up the hillside I saw, when I looked out of my room, the front side of the house; it is a bit steep, you have to watch your step a bit, but the sights and the stillness are a very special overwelming experience. And, of course going to Iona, to the Abbey, the white beaches with their overwelming colours and views.

Caol-Ithe is now one of our favorite B&Bs. We have stayed in many over the years, all over the UK, Canada and the United States and can't say enough about stay there. Great room, great breakfasts, but the best thing about Caol-Ithe is the hosts, Julie and Patrick. So helpful and accommodating with our questions and requests. I'd stay again in a heartbeat. Thanks, Jenny and Ed

Tips:

Make a reservation for Keel Row restaurant right down the road. You won't regret it!

Julie and Patrick were exceptional hosts. Our room was lovely, cozy and clean with a stunning view of Iona across the sound. Breakfast was delicious with a wide array of options to choose from. Caol-Ithe is easy walking distance from Fionnphort's local pub, general store, ferries to the Isle of Iona, and more. We couldn't be more happy with choosing to stay here and would recommend it to anyone.

Tips:

There are plenty of things to do within walking distance of Caol-Ithe, from visiting the historical Isle of Iona with its Abbey, Nunnery, gift shops and hikes to eating out at the local pub in Fionnphort, The Keel Row. We enjoyed visiting Iona's Craft Shop, learning about the history of the local area at the Heritage Center and grabbing sandwiches from the Columba Larder. The small Isle of Staffa is also only a short boat trip away and is a must see.

Caol’s location is stunning. Situated in Fionnphort within 5 minutes walk to the Iona Ferry it makes for a splendid stay. The owners, Julie and Patrick, are wonderful hosts. The accommodation from bedroom to guest room is perfect. Breakfasts offer great choice in a dining room which has a stunning panoramic view of the nearby mountains. It is truly 5 star in every respect.

Tips:

The Keel Row restaurant is 100 yards walk from Caol. The restaurant offers a wide selection of local produce throughout the day and evening. They also provide live music performed by local musicians on selected evenings. At the ferry port there is the Creel which provides a wide range of eat-as-you go seafood. Then there’s the incomparable magic of Iona within a 15 minute Ferry sailing. All in all wonderful.

Julie and Patrick made us feel most welcome and were free with advice and suggestions. They provided us with a pack lunch and very early breakfast when we had an early departure to join a Nature Watching trip at Tobermory.

Tips:

Iona a must, but then if you are here that is probably your destination. Don't go by ViaMichelin travel times anywhere on Mull. Allow nearly double. Driving on single track roads with passing bays is easy if you keep looking ahead and anticipating ongoing vehicles and be alert to vehicles behind which may be in a hurry. We were passed by an emergency ambulance. Nature Scotland nature trip worth the early morning rise and drive. Saw both Golden and White Tailed Eagles. Eating places very limited in Fionnphort particularly on a Monday evening. Enjoy your stay.

Julie and Patrick are the perfect hosts. Nothing is tto much bother for them. The accommodation is beautiful and the breakfasts absolutely first class. I have stayed here before with friends but this time with my husband who does not walk well and every time they were at the door to help him. They made this trip for us so very special for us and I will be returning soon

Tips:

There is only one local restuarant and it does not open on Mondays. The alternative is the Creel down by the harbour who serve great fish & chips ets. The Caol Ithe is within a short walk to the ferry foe Iona which runs regularly and apart from the Abbey the museum and heritage centre are worth a visit. Walks to the North Beach and to St Columba's Bay are worth it just to see the rock colours.

Great facilities and warm welcome. Excellent breakfasts with good options and variety - lots of healthy items! Good location in terms of accessing ferry to Iona for a day’s walking. Amazing views from dining room and first rate lounge. We will be back I’m sure.

Tips:

There are some good short walks nearby although the best walking is perhaps on Iona. Worth crossing Iona to the Bay at the Back of the Ocean - a wild spot in the west far from the busier hotspots on Iona. Also walk northwards up to the bay on the northwest corner - good to paddle or swim and some amazing very ancient rocks (Lewisian Gneiss 400 million years old with twists of pink colouring). The experience of joining the Iona Community for Sunday morning worship in the Abbey is also striking. I would also recommend visiting Ardalanish Wool Weaving Mill (in a farm on the coast south of Bunesson) where you can watch age-old techniques producing Hebridean textiles of a high standard in herb-dyed colours. Staff are very welcoming there and will show you what they do.

Hosts Julie and Patrick were very friendly and welcoming. We can’t recommend highly enough! Thank you for a wonderful stay in your beautiful part of the world.

Tips:

Boat trip to Iona is a must from here, and in clear weather, look out for beautiful sunsets. It’s also worth taking time to enjoy the beach at Fionnphort itself, and have a look at the local arts and crafts. Food good and staff friendly at The Keel Row restaurant, but be prepared for a long wait for your food!

A first class experience. All the services we were paying for (room, breakfast etc) were great but the exceptional thing is the additional advice and guidance about local eating options, travel plans, trips to take etc. Simply over and above the highest expectations. We had an absolutely wonderful short break and are very grateful to Patrick and Julie for all they did for us.

Tips:

Coal-Ithe is perfectly located for trips to Iona and Staffa - walk to ferry. Worth taking the Staffa trip with the company Julie recommends - it was brilliant. Share your plans for touring the island with Patrick and Julie as they can offer great advice. The Argyll Arms in Bunessan is "pub grub" so best to have that expectation.

Tips:

Owner had prompted us that we needed to pre-book meals out in the evening so on one evening we went to the Keel Row which was friendly and had a good choice of meals. For seafood, the Creel seafood bar whilst just a takeaway looked and smelt excellent although we had no chance to eat there. The meal we had at the Ninth Wave restaurant was excellent although unfortunately they are closing this season. Iona was very interesting - do go to the Abbey museum. Go walking around the island and listen out for the corncrakes.

Tips:

Live music in Keel Row pub (may need to book ahead for evening meals). Creel seafood bar ... great food. Iona, too see its Abbey and museum, and (in Spring and Summer) the Machair on the west side of the island Staffa Tours wildlife tour (6 hours) to the spectacular Isle of Staffa and the Treshnish Islands .....

A warm welcome, delightful room and delicious breakfast. The very comfortable lounge was a bonus and the view just wonderful. My husband really appreciated Julie managing to dry his shoes and jeans after a rather wet trip to Staffa.

Tips:

Iona, of course, is a ‘must visit’. The ferries from Fionnphort are frequent and take only about 10-15 minutes. On the boat trips to Staffa, it probably makes sense to find a place in the cabin to avoid the worst of the spray if the crossing is a little rough. The Keel Row (a very short walk from Caol-Ithe) is a great pub/restaurant. Ambience is good and the food delicious. We definitely recommend booking as there aren’t many places around for dinner and it’s very popular.

What a delightful couple. They welcomed us with open armed, 2 soaking wet bikers and nothing was too much trouble for them. The room was lovely and clean and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay on Mull. The breakfast was delicious and the whole experience so much better than the night before in Oban which was more than double the price. Thanks for looking after us. Sally-Ann & Hugh

Tips:

The Ninth Wave restaurant is a must if you love gourmet food but book way in advance. A trip to Staffa is a must too.

Julie was very accessible and responsive to emails. Surprising and refreshing in a world where you have to ores 1 for this and 2 for that. We loved the personal nature of the entire process from booking to advice on walks, ferries, tide times. Julie really enhanced our stay with local knowledge and thoughtful help. Patrick was very kind and offered to cook us dinner as there were no other places to eat. Delicious, beautifully presented simple food hat was way better than I could make at home. Very accommodating with everything. Would definitely recommend. Comfortable rooms and good privacy. Lovely views from sitting area. Very very good.

Tips:

Ask Patrick about the walk up the hill down through the quarry and round. You need to be happy on steep grass and able to hike a bit of a way bit a great walk for us with a hidden beach.

An absolutely brilliant BnB. Julie and Patrick were perfect hosts. Nothing was too much trouble. The home was spacious, bright, beautifully decorated and spotless.They followed COVID to the letter in a rigorous but freindly way. The lounge and dining rooms were large and welcoming. We stayed for 4 nights and wished it had been longer. Thery gave good advice about local places, walks and services. By far the finest bnb we have ever stayed at. Thanks!!

Tips:

A couple of hundred yards from the ferry to Iona and Staffa. Less to local shop and post office with daily papers by noon. 9th Wave Restaurant all it claims to be (fantastic!). Don't miss Kintra village and bay with wonderful red granite cliffs within 1 km of Caol. Also walk across beach to Erraid at low tide. Further away Carsaig is a an atmospheric pier in the rain and mist. But for us (ie me!!) the unsung highlight was the drive up Glen More with its views south to Lochs Sguabain,an Eilean, and Glais and onwards to Lochbuie with its fantastic beach and bay and castle and freshly baked cakes (each day 1at 8.00am at beach Post Office. We'll be back!

Everything about our stay was exceptionally high. From the early communication, advising us about pubs/restaurants closed for the season and supplying restaurant standard evening meals as well as a breakfast that catered for dietary requirements. The accomodation was high quality, well equipped and immaculate, little extras on arrival made all the difference. The location was ideal for Iona and other sea trips to Staffa. And finally the hosts were very friendly and, we couldn't have asked for more

Tips:

The ferry trip to Iona was easy, paying by card when boarding and there is plenty to see on the island. The parking for the ferry is expensive but only a few 100 meters away there is free parking in the village. The road across the Ross of Mull is very scenic and good quality compared to other remote areas of Mull.

Excellent hospitality with evening meals to accommodate guests when local facilities are restricted of necessity by location and/or arrival times being subject to ferry timetables. Patrick is an excellent chef and Julie likewise a excellent hostess. Covid precautions were very good and did not find them onerous Definitely will aim to repeat our stay next time we would visit Mull

Tips:

Local restaurants are very limited in Fionnphort,and within an hours driving time. Ninth Wave is a niche restaurant and prior booking is essential, if you are a foodie it is really superb but see their website. Local pub the KeelRow has limited opening but meals are good, best to book ahead ( e-mail) if you can before travelling. Frequent daytime ferry service to Iona and excursions to Staffa etc. people go to Mull for the peace and quiet and the wildlife and scenery

Our hosts Julie and Patrick were extremely helpful, accommodating and friendly without being intrusive. The breakfasts and evening meal were always fresh and delicious. They were particularly helpful and available by phone in advance of our arrival to give advice on local issues and to book a boat trip to Staffa. They also showed us a fabulous local walk starting from their doorstep. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and well equipped. We especially enjoyed the non generic decor and artwork in our room and the shared spaces (down to the bee motif teacups). The shower was great too, and the homemade biscuits and chocolate left in the rooms very tasty and welcome.

Tips:

We were travelling on public transport with no car which was great as we really enjoyed our early morning schedules bus ride from Craignure to Fionnphort during which the duvet have us a lively guided tour (I don't think all the drivers offer this service though!). However its very important not to miss the last bus of the day from Craignure to Fionnphort as its an hours drive and very difficult (and costly) to find a taxi. We had no car but it was easy to get the ferry from Fionnphort to Iona and enjoy great walks, fantastic beaches, good food me to visit the famous Iona Abbey and Nunnery. There are also amazing beaches (eg Finnen) and walks on Mull. We had a good mean at the Keel Row Pub and the best fish and chips at the Creek, both near the Fionnphort ferry terminal. We had no problem with midges at all (mid August). A trip to Staffa to see Fingals's Cave is a must and further out to the Treshnish Islands to see the Puffins and other wildlife during the season. Sadly, the Puffins had all left by the time we arrived but we hope to return again to this wonderful part of the world.

A warm welcome from Julie and Patrick. Nothing was too much trouble. There were lots of extras in our room. Excellent meals. Delicious home cooking and not “chips with everything” Good to have space for wet walking shoes and coats. Comfy lounge area with lovely view. The only minus was the poor mobile and WiFi reception

Tips:

This part of Mull is to be highly recommended for its superb sandy beaches and access to Iona. The location on the edge of Fionphort makes it very convenient for the ferry, pub, shop and 2 of the many sandy beaches.Having visited the Ross many times we reckon it often avoids the rain that the rest of Mull gets from the higher mountains.

Tips:

It's a great place to stay, conveniently near to Iona but also offering possibilities of walks around that end of Mull. The Argyll Hotel on Iona offers good food with a superb view of the sea and back to Mull. The Keel Row pub offers a good choice of food with friendly service.

Tips:

The Treshnish Islands boat trip is highly recommended, the company we booked with only goes on Tues & Thurs at the moment. Local restaurants all excellent but note that the Creel can run out of options later in the day, depending on demand. It's extremely popular and rightly so! On our last day we ordered our meal in the morning before getting the ferry to Iona and thoroughly enjoyed our dinner watching the Highland cows on the beach!

The current owners, Patrick and Julie have made us so welcome, and have coped with the current Covid situation so well, to make us feel safe and comfortable during our stay. They have provided beautiful evening meals when the local Inn was not open. The rooms are lovely with the extra touches such as home made fudge and a coffee machine. The views from the sun lounge window are beautiful, looking across to Iona, or just watching the many beautiful little birds in the garden.

Take a Scottish Bird book as there are so many beautiful birds to see. The Keel Row inn has great food with large portions! Iona is beautiful, spend time just sitting on one of the many benches on the island and take in the view, peace and calm.

Breakfast was superb. A very good choice of food and cooked to perfection. COVID procedures were in place but this was very reassuring. We look forward to visiting again.

Tips:

At the time we stayed there were very few places that were open for evening meals. Julia, our host, did offer a hot meal but unfortunately we couldn’t take the offer up.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. No complaints. You were most obliging and also easy to talk to. If looking for any difficulties, the only thing I can think of was a rather heavy, and squeaky, bathroom door! As we discussed, we would be VERY happy to stay again - with an evening meal included - though we would be prepared to face the hassle of the pub sme nights (if these wretched problems would go away). We managed to forget all about Covid while we were with you - apart from your house we didn’t touch anything or see anyone. Back to Glasgow now - still sunny! Wish we were still with you! Many thanks, and best wishes for the success of your business. Hope you enjoy life on Mull. Marie Watt

Tips:

Don’t try to drive all over the island - just enjoy the nearby bays etc., and, of course, Iona.

We had a lovely two night stay at Caol-Ithe Guest House. Julie was very friendly and helpful. The food was superb – fantastic breakfast, and we ate dinner there too as restaurants in the village were closed due to Covid. But we were given a delicious three-course meal every evening and were very happy! The baking in particular was a highlight. :-)

We think this is one of the best b and b's we have stayed in. The welcome was warm and kind throughout the week, the room was v comfortable, the food at breakfast and dinner each day was carefully prepared and delicious. Thank you for a memorable stay, during a v difficult period. You struck the right balance in making us feel safe and yet relatively normal as well. Thank you so much

Tips:

Difficult to provide tips with so much closed! We hiked each day, using the Cicerone guide for ideas. Two walking trips to Iona were good, plus others to explore southern coastline and other headlands on Ross of Mull. We certainly experienced it's remoteness. Two sets of walking footwear and waterproofs were essential!! Plenty to explore for six days without too much roadwork in the car!

Julie and Patrick were very welcoming and friendly. Everything was very clean. Due to CV-19 all local restaurants were closed. We accepted their kindly offer to provide a 3 course dinner which was excellent. Breakfast was also excellent.

Tips:

The next morning we took the Staffa Tours trip at 9.45am to Staffa (Fingal's Cave) and then to Iona. We also saw Harbour Porpoises, a Basking Shark, a Minke Whale, Shags and Great Shuas. After spending about 3 hours on Iona we took the Staffa Tours boat to Fionnphort, then drove to Tobermory. we had lunch in the garden at St Columba Hotel which was quite OK.

It’s a long time since we have stayed somewhere we have been hosted so warmly and so well. Accommodation was spotless, breakfast and dinner brilliant and Our hosts went above and beyond to make our stay memorable. The location is close to Iona and trips to Staffa but apart from that you might feel you have fallen off the end of the world. This absolutely is a positive, forced, as you will be, into abandoning the car and visiting some of the finest scenery in Scotland.

Tips:

Iona. Take your time and walk down to St Columba’s bay in the south or the sand dunes in the north. Or both.

However the ferry to Iona is inexpensive and runs frequently giving access to tourist attractions, shops and eating places. The pleasant walk alongside Loch Pottie runs from Caol-Ithe Guest House and deserves to be better advertised.

This is a really lovely B&B - the rooms are well decorated and appointed; the espresso machine was a great bonus! Bed very comfy. The guests dining room and lounge both have great views of the surrounding hills. The lounge has large picture windows and a telescope to make the best of the views. We stayed 4 nights but seemed to be the only ones to use the lounge - all the other guests stayed in their rooms - very much their loss. Breakfast was excellent - cooked to order and very tasty. We needed to leave early on our last morning, but an early breakfast was no problem. Just one thing didn't really work for us - 3 of the rooms have en suite bathrooms, but the 4th room has a separate bathroom across the corridor. No problem if that room is unoccupied or the guests in it sleep through the night - but, if like us, you have an elderly couple in there who get up to go to the bathroom 3 times during the night then the opening, closing and locking/unlocking of the doors disturbs your sleep.

Tips:

Be warned that eating options in Fionnphort are limited. There is an expensive fish restaurant (which must be pre-booked) or the local pub - the Keel Row. The Keel Row do not allow pre-booking - you turn up at 17.30 or later and get you name on a waiting list, with no say in what time you get to eat. Whilst in Fionnphort make sure you visit Iona and Staffa.

Caol-Ithe is the very best place to stay in Fionnphort. The people, food and service can not be better.

Tips:

Visit Iona! Get up early. Breakfast is served at 7:30 AM. Gives you enough time to get the first ferry at 8.35 AM. Join the morning service in the Abbey at 9:00 PM, and explore the Abbey-grounds and museum afterwards. Explore the rest of the island: Take a walk to Columba bay (south end) or the Iona Marble quarry (same direction but not marked). Or go to see the white sands of the beach on the northern part of the island.Take your time to have Afternoon teas at Argyll Hotel from 2.PM (they have marvelous scones, whipped cream and jam) before you leave the island. Have your light but good dinner at Keel Row between 6 and 8 PM the same day and if you stay another day, book a table at Ninth Wave restaurant for the next evening. They are absolutely excelent. Don't forget to visit Staffa. Caol-Ithe can help you to book.

For an evening meal and some good beer you can't beat Keel Row - very friendly even when busy. Go over to Iona - its so beautiful with lovely white sandy beaches. The information centre is well worth a visit - plus their café for lunch. Lovely gifts at the shop near the quay too.

Location, location, location!!!! Splendid views abound over the pretty village and Iona from the most comfy and beautifully decorated dining and sitting rooms. The hosts were so friendly, helpful and informative. The guest house is situated in the most perfect place for going to Iona. The breakfasts were super - don’t miss the French toast!!! Our room was spotless and cosy. Thank you Kathy and Mike.

Tips:

At least a day on Iona is a must. Take an early ferry and have some time before any coach loads arrive!

I have really enjoyed my stay. Everything has been perfect; the room is perfect, modern, very well equipped and absolutely clean, and with lovely views too!!!. The rest of the house is lovely, perfect and cozy. And the breakfast was delicious and lovely prepared.It has been perfect. In fact,I have already recomended this b&b to some friends.

Tips:

Sorry, I have not visited more places in the village. But if you are going to visit Iona and your ferry is cancelled, this place is a perfect place to stay.

The breakfast was amazing! The rooms were very clean and well appointed. It was a perfect stay. Cathy and Michael, we thank you very much!

Tips:

Don't miss the boat trip with the wooden boat to Staffa. (To be booked at www.staffatrips.co.uk) There is good food at the local pub "The Keel Row", nice staff there... The Isle of Mull is so stunning and gorgeous, take enough time for your holiday!

The town is a stone's throw from the B&B. The Keel Row restaurant and pub had excellent food and was filled with laid back people willing to chat. The ferry to Iona is right there. Lots of stunning scenery.

What a beautiful place to stay! I'm sure there's not a better B&B in Fionnphort. The house and facilities were top-notch, the breakfasts imaginative and delicious, and the hosts beyond helpful. We can't wait to return--and bring friends!

Tips:

The location is a little further than others, on the edge of the village, but it's only a 5-10 minute walk to the shop, the pub, and the ferry.

Stunning location, minutes walk from the ferry to Iona. Bed and breakfast is immaculate. Perfect in every way the hosts were friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The rooms were a very high standard and spotless. The breakfast was excellent, good choice and the homemade raisin bread was amazing. The extra touches like the raspberry liqueur nightcap and homemade tablet were genius. Probably the best B and B I have ever stayed in just perfect in every way.

Always a very warm welcome. Clean and comfortable room with little added extras that make your stay even more enjoyable. Nothing is too much trouble for Cath & Mike, who are a great couple with lots of knowledge about the area and plenty of advice of what to do and where to go.

Tips:

The Keel Row in Fionnphort is great for food, but get in early, otherwise you may not get a table until late! The Creel at Fionnphort Pier is handy for takeaway sandwiches - I asked if they could make up a Prawn Mayonnaise sandwich for me (I'm not keen on the Marie Rose sauce, which they usually put with the Prawns) - it was amazing!! even better than M&S! Ardanalish Beach is a mile long stretch - great on a sunny day and you often have it to yourselves!!

We were made most welcome, even with a cup of tea and home baking on arrival - a home from home! Very comfortable and clean accommodation. Delicious breakfast, including a very good choice of hot cooked dishes. All in all, a quality establishment! We were most appreciative of the information about the locality and about trips to Iona and Staffa. Little extras, such as coffee machine in the room, provision of binoculars, wine glasses and bottle opener and the raspberry liqueuer and home-made tablet each day were very nice touches.

Tips:

Excellent near-by pub serving real ale and good food. Visit to the Abbey and lovely beaches on Iona. Visit to Staffa to see Fingal's Cave and puffins.

Cathy and Mike are delightful hosts who make you feel very welcome. The rooms are immaculately prepared, with little touches to put their B&B ahead of the best. Breakfasts were delicious. My only comment to improve the service would be to provide guests with face cloths. I didn't travel with anything for showering as I anticipated getting one.

Tips:

Keel Row offers good food but take no reservations and so you need to turn up early and wait. Fortunately, the sun was out, it was warm and everyone was happy to sit outside and wait for a table. The Ninth Wave restaurant is a MUST and reservations are essential. It is an exceptional restaurant by any standards, but to find it on the southwest corner of Mull.... Iona isn't only about the Abbey, the island has the most amazing beaches. I want to return for a week or longer.

Tips:

The pub a few doors down towards the ferry dock has a wonderful little restaurant (The Keel Row) operated by a former chef--a surprising find in a small seaside town. One of the best meals of our whole trip through Scotland. Go early, though. They fill up fast.

Cathy and Mike are great hosts who will do what they can to make your stay an enjoyable one. Nice touches such as tea/coffee and home baking on arrival in the lounge, Scottish tablet and raspberry liqueur night cap in the room as well as “plenty of ice for the gin and tonics”. Very friendly and welcoming.

Tips:

The Ninth Wave restaurant is within walking distance and certainly worth a visit. we were recommended by a friend and knew to book in advance as it is only small. It is fine dining and Johnny will show you how to really tackle eating the lobster that he caught that morning! The Keel Row is just yards away for good wholesome dishes. We were advised by Mike to go for dinner early if you are hungry as it is a first come restaurant with a waiting list. Great fish and chips!
