Rachel was incredibly kind and helpful and made us feel really welcome.

Tips:

We loved the boat trips to Staffa and Iona. We alsoWe also enjoyed walks to Fidden and Erraid. The home made soup and bacon rolls in the Fionnphort ferry port cafe were a real treat!

A group of 7 of us stayed for sea kayaking in the local area. The facilities were spot on and ideal for us. There is a small drying room but very effective when used with the dehumidifier. Would have no hesitation to recommend to others for a stay in the Ross of Mull area

Matt and Rachel are the perfect hosts, friendly and approachable. Always available, but only if requested. Full of great information and stories about the area, local knowledge is always better than any guide book. If you want peace and quiet and to be surrounded by a beautiful landscape, this is the place to be. The perfect tonic to modern day life.

Tips:

A trip to Iona on the ferry is a great day out. Ferry is not expensive and takes about 10 minutes. Iona is like stepping back in time, the Abbey is a must see and the two hotels do great food. A walk over the island to the beaches on the west side for a swim followed by a pint.

Excellent self catering accomodation for a large group on Mull, ideally located for boat trips to Staffa and Iona, as well as exploring the local beaches. Upon arrival, the owners provided us with local suggestions during our stay.

Tips:

A boat trip to Staffa and Iona is a must especially with the boat trip so close by.

Could not have asked for a better hosts in a better location. The hosts were very informative and helpful. The place was absolutely spotless and very welcoming. We felt very relaxed. There was even some games and activities for the children and an excellent variety of books for the adults. The view from the light bing room window and also from the back door was stunning. Definitely the best self catering facility I’ve stayed at.

Tips:

At Fionnport the boat goes to Iona. The food at The local hotel on Iona is excellent and has a vegan option. The beach at Fionnport is beautiful. Another beautiful beach is at Uisken which is only a few miles away.

We had a fantastic stay and would love to come again. It's a beautiful location and the bunkhouse had everything we needed - plusher than I was expecting for a bunkhouse - top notch! Thanks for being such welcoming hosts. The kids had a ball! Helen

Tips:

We stayed 4 nights and took the ferry over to swim on the north shore beaches of Iona / went pony trekking at Killiechronan and (my favourite) took a StaffaTours boat out to Staffa where we had a picnic surrounded by puffins, saw LOADS of dolphins (there and back) and walked along to Fingal's Cave.

The only reason I give a 4 for service is that the WiFi wasn’t great. I talked to Matt about that and realise it was beyond their control. The setting is idyllic and the bunkhouse is tremendous. I was on Mull for work and it was a perfect base for the weekend.

Rachel and Matt host a lovely spot - this is our second visit to the Ross of Mull - the location is perfect if you want some peace and quiet and to visit the best beaches on the West coast. The accomodation is cosy and spotless. Plenty books to read if the weather keeps you indoors. The views from all around gorgeous.

Tips:

Visit the Isle of Iona - a trip to Staffa is a must-do - we went with Staffa Trips on the Iolaire - a gorgeous little wooden boat. The Creel seafood bar at the Finnephort ferry serves really tasty outdoors cuisine. I can't wait to come back and explore more.

This is not your average bunkhouse! Admittedly, due to Covid rules my partner and I were lucky enough to have the place to ourselves but, setting that aside, the facilities are excellent. Spacious open plan lounge and dining area and a well-equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and modern bathroom. All spotlessly clean. A fab bookcase full of useful local guides as well as a good choice of reads... and a log burner to die for! Rachel, Matt and mum Margaret are absolutely lovely, warm and welcoming and on hand to answer any questions or offer advice. We were told to help ourselves to veg from their kitchen garden, which we took full advantage of. A real gem of a place!

Tips:

My partner and I were here for the sea kayaking. The coastal geology and beaches on this part of Mull are outstanding, and many can be reached by foot with a bit of effort. The shop in Fionnphort is well stocked and Rachel and Matt provided a list of local producers and businesses who were doing food delivery/collection. If you like mussels, a stop at the Inverlussa mussel farm on your way from Craignure is a must - just a couple of quid in the honesty box and cooked with fresh garlic and onion from the kitchen garden - yum!

We had a fabulous few days at the bunk house, the accommodation was to a very high standard and very comfortable. The views from House were amazing. The owners were very welcoming and were on hand if we needed anything but were not intrusive. I would definitely return.

Tips:

The surrounding area offers plenty of walks and the crossing to iona is just 10min walk away. Here you will find small local shop and fish and chip takeaway on certain days.iona is worth going more then once and there are two hotels where you can get meals. Tobermory is well worth a visit and the longer drive round through Salen to get to it offers lots of scenary.

We had family with us from France and they couldn't believe how nice everything was. And the beds are really comfortable!

Tips:

Perfect for going to Iona and for lovely walks in the area (such as Erraid, which is stunning). The walk to Fionnphort is only about 15-20 minutes and there's a well stocked shop which stays open until 6pm.

We love Iona, and being so close to ferry makes it easy to spend as long as you want there. Staffa trip on "Iolaire" is well worth taking. Take away menu from "Keel Row" restaurant is good.

This was a lovely bunkhouse and Matt and Rachel were exceptional hosts. The bunkhouse was clean, newly renovated, and the common area offered a wonderful space for our party. There's truly nothing bad to say about the entire experience. It's a perfect stay for those travelling through Mull or visiting Iona.

Tips:

As the bunkhouse is self-catering it may be easiest to grab groceries in Oban or Craignure; the Fionnphort Spar closes around 5 or 6, but during the day it is open to stock the bunkhouse. The Keel Row in Fionnphort is also a great dinner location - closes around 8. This is perhaps obvious to those better travelled, but best to come down to this part of the Island with at least a half tank of gas as the closest gas station is about 5 miles away and closed on Sunday during the off-season.

If eating out and the weather is good, you can get take-away food from the pub in Fionnphort and eat it on the sea shore. Look out for Hen Harriers, we saw one hunting in the neighbouring field.

Superb bunkhouse. Stayed in it last summer as well. Very well run and owners are great. Highly recommended. I'll certainly be back!

Tips:

Excellent scenery in the area, some of the finest on the west coast. I'm a geologist - there is a phenomenal variety of geology in the area - worth investigating!

Simple bunkhouse with good beds (many opportunities to charge your devices). We got the room for ourselves since there were no other guests. The bunkhouse has two rooms with four beds each, so no huge dorms or anything (which made us very happy, because we wanted a bit more privacy than a dorm). Under the beds are steel cages to lock up your gear - remeber to bring your own lock. The living room is cozy, nicely furnished and well-stocked with books and games. The kitchen has all the necessary appliances but you need to bring your own provisions. Sanitation is modern and spotless. On top of all this the staff went above and beyond to make us feel welcome and help us out when we needed it. Overall, a great place to rest after a long day of hiking on Mull.

Tips:

If you only have a Maestro card, you can't use the cash machine in Fionnphort, but the Spar shop on Iona will give cash back. Even so, I would advise bringing plenty of cash when you visit Iona just in case, or to bring a credit card, because most businesses do have electronic paystations for creditcards. The pub (The Keel Row) is the only pub in the area but offers delicious meals, at a decent price and the service was quick and friendly.

Our stay at the Bunkhouse was rather unplanned, but wet and cold backpackers were welcomed and put to rights with a friendly smile. Rachel is a dear, and a wonderful hostess; going beyond the necessary by providing timetables and helping us plan the next leg of our journey. The facilites were clean, tidy, and comfortable, with that bit of character that makes travelling fun. We appreciated the woodburning stove in the common area. The cost is worth what you get and I would highly recommend this Bunkhouse to any traveller!

Tips:

Be sure to check the ferry timtables and cancellations before you travel by bus! There are only a few buses in the area over the weekend so best to plan ahead.

Fantastic and peaceful location. Very handy to Fionnphort and ferry to Iona. The owners Rachel and Matt most welcoming and informative. A home away from home for a weary New zealand traveller.. Beautiful evening light for walking with kerb side sheepand for those who indulge in photography. Will return and stay longer. Thankyou for a most pleasant stay. Also a great library of books in lounge.

Tips:

Make your stay longer and explore the walking about Fionnphort

Tips:

Based on my two day stay at this bunk house a boat trip to Staffa and Fingal’s cave is shurely a highlight. For this trip bring your binoculars with you since there is a great chance to see some seals and dolphins on the way. Walking to the nice remote beaches south of Fionnphort is also something that should not be missed. Great parts of this walks are very off road. Therefore reasonable walking boots are advisable for that trip.

Very nice stay! The owners are very kind and the house very confortable and cozy, with a beautiful common area and kitchen well furnished. The wifi works very well, the house is warm and plenty of space.

Tips:

The isle is really beautiful and, also if Ross of Mull is far away from Craignure and Tobermory, is very strategical to visit Iona and Staffa. Fionport is only a few minutes walk away, to eat at the local pub or take a ferry. Also, is possible to visit several beaches or only walk along the lakes and country.

The best bunkhouse in the whole Scotland trip. Super cozy, comfortable, clean and well appointed. The hosts were absolutely nice and helpful. The location is a dream. You live directly at a sea and it's very close to the next city and Iona. Best bunkhouse ever. We can 100% recommend this one!!!

Iona, nice hiking routes

The bunkhouse is newly opened with two rooms with 2 bunkbeds in each. The beds and bedding are really comfortable and of excellent quality, with charging ports and reading lights for each bed. The bathroom is brand new and modern (one per room). The living room and kitchen areas are clean, cosy and comfortable. The kitchen is well equiped. Matt and his partner are extremely welcoming and warm.

Tips:

We went to Staffa Island with Staffa Tours which is not to be missed. It’d be worth spending half a day or so on the lovely Isle of Iona; boats to Iona are frequent and take about 10 minutes. If you are getting to the bunkhouse without a car, then you would arrive by bus to Fionnphort and then you’ll have to walk 15 minutes back up the road (dodging the sheep) towards the small loch. There is one small shop in the town that sells groceries but the selection isn’t vast and closes early, so it’d be best to buy groceries in advance of your arrival. Otherwise you could eat at the pub.

Beautiful place to stay. Well equiped and very comfortable. Close to the town of Fionnphort and shops. No television but that suited me just fine and a good selection of games and puzzles kept the kids occupied Fresh bread provided daily which was delicious and Rachel was a fabulous hostess

Tips:

Take the boat trip to Isle of Staffa and get dropped off on Iona on the way back. A fab day out. Shops and restaurants close early so be prepared but a really beautiful place to stay The seafood in the Creel (on the dock) is excellent

Ross of Mull Bunkhouse is a lovely, great new hostel with warm, friendly, and welcoming owners. Margaret, Matt and Rachel were very friendly and helpful, and a real pleasure to chat to. The Bunkhouse has recently been refurbished and finished to a high standard. The bunkrooms are comfortable and spacious. The bathrooms are brand new and immaculate with great showers. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need, and the communal dining/sitting room area is comfortable and homely with a great wood burning fire for any cold wet nights! There is a good selection of local information to read, as well as a range of books to borrow and board games to play. We really enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the bunkhouse as a place to stay while visiting Mull.

Tips:

The bunkhouse is about a mile from the village of Fionnphort where there is a local Spar, nice pub and the Creel Seafood Bar which serves up delicious fresh seafood. The ferry terminal to Iona is also situated in Fionnphort, and a trip over is well worth a visit. The Ross of Mull is a beautiful area and a great place to explore surrounding beaches, wildlife and make a trip to Iona, as well as many other activities.

Lovely friendly welcome. We all thought we had the best night's sleep of our lives ( mum, dad and 3 kids) in your wonderfully comfortable new beds, after a long and exhilarating day on Mull. An ideal and very cosy, well-appointed base from which to explore the Ross of Mull and Iona. Thank you!

The stay was flawless. The hosts were lovely - really warm and authentic people whom we really enjoyed chatting with, in a very open and relaxed way - beyond just The typical host-guest exchanges that we have all had! The location of The bunkhouse is superb. It is a stunning wild part of The island but within very easy walking trip to The village of Fionnphort, for shop, pub, seafood/ fish and chips shack Iona ferry, cafè, loos and beach. There are easy short trip to secluded beaches and tucked away cafes, hotels and small businesses such as weaving. The bunkhouse itself has absolutely everything you need and a bit more. The bedrooms have very comfortable beds and there is good storage space underneath and a chest of drawers and hangers. The beds have reading lights and USB connections. There are loads of books and games in the living room, which has very comfortable couches and a good dining area at the rear. The kitchen is well equipped, and has a handy utility room attached. There is a very peaceful and tranquil feel around The bunkhouse. There is a nice outlook with the lush and wild scenery and The odd house.

Tips:

The pub in The village is cosy, casual and traditional. If you want to eat there, definitely get there in good time (by 6pm) and tell them you plan to be dining. They have a slightly unusual system of not taking advance bookings, and staggering the entrants to the dining lounge from 6pm. The food was very good. Prices are probably higher then you would pay for The same fare in similar places in The central belt. Beaches nearby are great, such as Fidden. The trip to Iona is an easy one to do and is well worth It. We visited in late May in sunny weather - no midge issues at all.
