Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, Patrick and Julie are top class hosts who are welcoming and helpful. Cottage is clean and cosy, and like a home-from-home for us. Perfect location to unwind and de-stress. In fact we can't wait to come back!

Tips:

We come to Mull predominantly for the wildlife, and to walk the beautiful locations. Saw otters, hen harriers and other wonderful birds during our stay.

My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed staying in your self catering cottage, thank you The cottage has a high standard of fixtures and fittings throughout, particularly the heating controls and flexibility. I was devastated when I splintered the dining table leg but the "chef" was very understanding. Thanks again for a great holiday. Isabel and Roy Mc Shane

Tips:

Obviously the Ninth Wave is the top restaurant but the Creel Shack offers exceptional locally caught shell fish, crab claws were wonderful Just leave the car and walk round the paths and beaches Don't forget to dine at the Keel Row: great pint langoustine tails!!

Great location as we travelled all of mull and was amazing to be right next to Isle of Iona. Great kitchen and washing facilities if you’re on a longer trip! Owners were attentive and friendly.

Tips:

Isle of Iona ferry just walk down the hill- £7.20 for a return for 2 adults and only 4 minute journey. You will not regret visiting here!

If you want a little bit of heaven, this is the place for you. This cottage has everything you need, it is thoughtfully equipped, and very comfy, plus you get a beautiful view and perfect peace and tranquillity. Well placed for easy trips across to Iona,( accompanied by the local dolphins) and with a beach at the end of the road, we had a fab week, just wished we had booked longer.

Tips:

The new path to Loch Pottie was a great find, we did it a couple of days and watched the local wildlife; Osprey diving in the loch... and enjoyed the spectacular scenery, and we didn't need to touch the car, just strolled out the front door.

It was very good value whilst providing everything needed to accommodate 2 couples comfortably.

Tips:

It is brilliant for a trip over to Iona and the local pub the Keel Row was good for food and drinks. Due to the single track roads on the island it does take a long time to get to other parts of the island however.

We stayed in cottage number one for two weeks, the cottage was very clean and comfortable and had everything you could possibly need just like home from home. Julie and Patrick were helpful and always available should we need them. As we were staying during the covid pandemic it was reassuring to know that the cottage had been thoroughly cleaned and well ventilated prior to our stay.

Tips:

Our cottage was a five minute walk to where you can board a ferry for Iona, the sailing only took around 15 minutes and you were rewarded with a beautiful island with sandy beaches,and plenty of places to eat etc. This area of Mull has lots of areas for walkers ,cyclists , and lovers of water sports to enjoy.

We had a wonderful stay at Cala Sith. Located just at the edge of Fionnphort, the accommodation is perfectly situated for swimming and family days at the beach, and for time on Iona (with the ferry five mins walk away). The property is spotlessly clean, comfortable, and has everything you'll need for cooking regular meals.

Tips:

The Staffa Trips boat to visit Fingal's Cave and the puffin colony on Staffa was well worth the money - even though I was sceptical about spending so much on it.

Tips:

There are several lovely beaches in the Fionnphort area. There’s a small pub, cafe, shop and The Creel seafood shack at the port - all within easy walking distance. Iona is easily reached by regular ferry service where there are further beaches, craft shops, eateries and, of course, the abbey. Please bear in mind our visit was during Covid restrictions and some venues were not open.

One of the nicest holiday accommodations that we've ever stayed in. Quality fittings and immaculately maintained throughout. Lovely views from the lounge and a short walk to the harbour/Iona ferry and a quiet location make it the perfect choice in Fionnphort. Lovely helpful hosts too. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Tips:

Due to the covid situation some things were closed during our visit but we can recommend the seafood shack near the harbour and a ferry trip to Iona. Tobermory is a nice day out with a drive to Calgary beach included. Don't be in a rush due to the nature of the single track roads and the spectacular views on the scenic route. Some other nice beaches local to Fionnphort too after a short drive. Big shop in Oban before you get the ferry.

We had a really lovely stay at Cala Sith. The cottage was pristine and everything really easy to get our head around. The location is incredible, and we appreciated being able to catch the Iona ferry on foot.

Tips:

Don't miss the amazing veggie at Kintra Croft Kitchen. Bread is easiest to come by at the ferry shop after 1pm. We love the Creel and the one time we visited the Ninth Waves left us incredible memories.The beaches on the Ross and Iona are amazing - Ardalanish and Knockvologan especially, also Fidden and Scoor, and on Iona, the Bay at the Back of the Ocean, Port Ban and North End. We saw an otter, seals and hen harriers. No eagles this year. We found doors and gates open at the Abbey (except the museum), though it's officially closed during Covid - an amazing surprise.

Tips:

Our trip to Staffa was wonderful - we missed the puffins but saw dolphins and seals, and Staffa is a beautiful place. Amazing beaches on Iona and a lovely evening stroll to Fidden. Very yummy meal at the Keel Row and great fish and chips by the quayside. I think it's worth knowing that the Spar on Iona is better stocked than the Ferry Shop (which has what you need most of the time).

Lovely hosts who welcomed us and showed us the self catering home. All mod cons available and very comfortable accommodation . Easy to find and good base for discovering Iona and lower Mull. Local amenities good and ate well out and cooked well in doors . Totally recommend staying here .

Tips:

Great way to Mull via Corran and Lochline ferries to Fishnich. Just queue up and pay on board. Good trip to Staffa with Staffs Tours and recommend booking online as very easy to do. If going to Tobermory and upper Mull suggest booking another venue to save long drive around the island. Calagy Bay was beautiful . Roads only have passing places so slower life style so good to chill out .

We loved the hospitality, the enthousiasm, the surroundings and the experience! And the Laphroaig Brodir - and the conversations that came with that. Hope to be able to re-visit in the future!

Tips:

Bring your hiking shoes and clean pants: the grounds can be quite muddy - especially if you're walking on unclear paths ;-) The Keel Row has good food and drinks and great service as well. Visit Staffa, Iona, climb Ben More if it's clear weather, walk to Erraid at low tide, etc: too much to see and too much to do!

A lovely holiday cottage in a great spot for us to visit Iona, we found everything very well cared for although the toilet flush probably needs replacing and we would have loved a larger bed. The people next door did not bother us as the house is well insulated. The hot water was plentiful, the tv a good reception, it was good to get internet in the main lounge when we needed it. We would and will definitely return at some point. We went frequently to the island and also visited ninth wave - excellent. Overall delightful.

Tips:

We got fresh fish to bring home and cook from the hut by the ferry. We thought Ninth Wave very good. We enjoyed the bakery at Bunnessan saw sea otters at Pennyghael felt we were best served by the 8:30 ferry as it was a much easier journey to Craignure We often lunched at St Columba on Iona - nice soup, also the Heritage cafe was very good. It would be useful to have details of Iona activities e.g. the pilgrim walk tuesday, eucharist on wednesday I know not all people will be interested but I think many will.

We received a warm welcome on arrival and were then shown round the cottage. Everything worked well: the rooms are a very good size and nicely appointed. This was excellent value. We will most certainly be back.

Tips:

It's rather difficult to know where to start. The Ninth Wave restaurant is almost literally on your doorstep: it is an unmissable dining experience. We visited Staffa on a beautiful clear blue day - Magic! Iona was peaceful. A circuit of the Island to Tobermory was tremendous fun. We saw deer, harriers, puffins, herons> The next visit is already being planned.
