Delightfull stay, had everything we needed. Loved the daily sauna and hot tub, felt a needed treat after hiking and swimming. Tim was a warm host and checked in regularly. Highly recommend.

Tips:

Take change for the electricity meter! It is topped up on arrival and hot tub catered for by the hosts, but you will need some for general use.

Lovely accommodation, hot tub was amazing, lovely owners. Would prefer the hot tub to be taken off the meter and as its running 24/7 added to the cost of hiring the cabin as the customers are paying for it anyway. Just saves keep worrying that the meter is going to stop it working.

Tips:

Bring plenty of 1 and 2 pound coins, bring your own dvds as tv channels are sparse, no wifi except at the eatery and data on ee is not good.

Stayed in cabin 2 for 4 nights in march.It is a 2 bedroom cabin with enough room for a family.Well equipped for all your needs with a dining table in kitchen area and also seating area outside.Nice to get away and enjoy some peace and quiet(from our city life)but not too secluded either as some homes just along the road.

Tips:

The path leading from the car park to the cabin(50 metres) has no lighting and the owners have provided a light/torch in the cabin for use going back and forward,We found that our lights on our phones worked well enough also.

Tim and Dianne run a great stay experience. The cabins have the perfect balance of comfort and isolation while st still having amenities like a shop on your doorstep. This is my new 1st choice for a stay on Mull.

Tips:

Salen village is the perfect location for your base of operations for a stay on Mull. It puts you right in the middle of the island and has plenty to see and do on its doorstep if you don’t feel like wandering too far.

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay from 16-23 September 2023. We never thought we would appreciate the hot tub so much, it was totally essential for defrosting after a day out in the autumn Mull weather! The cabin has everything you might need for a week's holiday, but we would have preferred a softer double bed.

Tips:

We took bbq charcoal so we could use the grill that was provided for cooking outdoors. Take plenty of £1 and £2 coins for the electric meter, especially if you are there in a cold snap. If you are visiting Mull for the wildlife, we had a great guided tour from Andrew Tomison from https://wildlifeonmull.co.uk/ and the photographer's trip by Mull Charters was absolutely incredible.

We had a fantastic week on the Isle of Mull and enjoyed our stay in cabin 1 at the Hart of Mull. The cabin was very cozy & comfortable and in a great location for exploring the island. We loved the hot tub and the facilities in the cabin were great and enabled us to have everything we needed for a self catering holiday. Prior to our holiday we recieved lots of communication from the owners which was great and very helpful, if we had any questions they were very quick to reply. We ate at the Taste of Mull which is run by the owners, the food was very delicious. We would stay here again and highly recommend!

Lovely peaceful cabin in a great location .the cabin is well equipped with just about everything you will need for your stay...would highly recommend it as a base to explore Mull and a place to relax in the evening.

Tips:

If you like a big mug of tea in the morning..take your own..theirs are small...if you are a light sleeper take ear plugs and eye mask...there is a little passing road noise that didn't bother us but the birds may wake you..and it gets light early..my only small niggle..curtains in bedroom could do with blackout lining or blinds

A beautiful, peaceful little stay on the Isle of Mull! The location right next to the sea is perfect, and the wooden Log cabin is so cosy and welcoming, the perfect place to stay with a group for a couple of days, rain or shine. Everything you need is provided and the place is the perfect mix of being private and feeling secluded, while being close to the amenities you need, with a shop, pub, cafe, post office and chippy all within the north walking distance. Would highly recommend for couples and families alike!

Remember to bring some coins for the heating, as they’re not always easy to acquire (especially on a Sunday when the post office is closed!)

We really enjoyed staying in Cabin 1. It's very tidy, well-appointed and cosy. It's the ideal place to switch off, or step away from digital distractions, and enjoy the great outdoors. The location at Salen makes an ideal base for exploring Mull. Tim and Diane were friendly and helpful at all times, and gave us plenty of recommendations for places to visit. Seeing two harts mere metres away from the kitchen wasn't something we expected, but added an extra layer of magic to our experience.

Had an amazing stay on Mull. The cabin was perfect for just me. I had everything I needed. I would say that a heads up about the electricity metre would have been useful so I could have come prepared with coins to feed it. Instead I had to beg the hotel owner for some change because everywhere else was closed by the time I arrived in Salen. Other than that, everything was perfect. Thank you.

Cabin was in a great central location for seeing the island. The only downside was road noise sometimes as quite close to the road tbough only busy at intervals. The walk to the cabin may be challenging for someone with mobility issues. Cabin had all you would need for your stay and was really cosy and comfy. Everything was well set up and communication with Diane prior to the stay was good. It was a really fantastic week. Thank you.

We managed to confuse the pod with the log cabin. Very stupid of us. But perhaps if we had given a time of arrival someone could have met us. I think you should have the password for the Wi Fi on view in either the cabin or the food van.

For those interested in wildlife we would highly recommend NatureScotland. Eagles, (both sorts), otters, flowers, fungi -all seen and identified. Some of the single track roads are difficult e.g. the one down to Grasspoint.

Tim and Diane lovely hosts and people. They were more than obliging when required. Facilities were just what was needed for a week long break. We stayed in cabin 1 which was very private amongst the trees. It was also fully equipped including use of the hot tub which was a fantastic bonus after a day out cycling, walking or wildlife watching! Tim and Diane also run the 'taste of Mull' which we frequented during our stay (take away or use the covered outdoor tables and fire to sit in). Food, although not fine dining was of a very good standard with a number of choices - the fish was perhaps the best I tasted on Mull. Very relaxing stay and would definitely visit again.

Tips:

We used both the coffee shops in Salen (approx 200 yards from our Cabin) for breakfast and morning/afternoon teas on occasion. Both were excellent. The Salen hotel is also within 200m although we did not visit. The local SPAR is again within easy walking distance and provided everything we needed for our stay. I would recommend a meal (in the bar or restaurant) or a drink at the Glen Forsa hotel which is about one mile away. If you like cycling there is cycle hire (including electric bikes) towards Salen pier across from the camp site. We brought our own bikes but on reflection it would have been better to hire. Cycling on Mull was fantastic but we kept away from the main Craignure to Tobermory road. Whilst cycling and walking we encountered an abundance of wildlife (which you can't really experience from a car) including, but not limited to, otters, golden eagles, sea eagles, skewers, cormorants and even a shark. On the one organised whale watching trip we took from Tobermory we encountered many different species of bird, saw porpoises but alas no whales. A trip to Iona is also worth a visit, not only for the abbey, but for the beaches. If you'd like to relax for a day the Isle of Mull hotel and spa allows you to use their facilities for a daily charge of £25. Overall we found the prices of food and drink reasonable with the food being of a good standard and in some cases (especially the sae food) exceptional. Be aware that phone and wifi reception on Mull is intermittent.

The cabin was very comfortable, though small, and well fitted out. The surroundings were a bit more wooded than I had expected - if the weather had been worse the approach would have been very drippy and the cabin even more gloomy. It would have been helpful to have been warned in advance about the electricity meter - some of us haven't used cash for 18 months so didn't have a ready supply of coins.

Tips:

Taste of Mull was brilliant - excellent range of dishes and very convenient. We had excellent sandwiches at the Bespoke Bakery in Salen and their sourdough loaf was lovely. Also excellent meat from the Mull Abattoir and Butchery on the main road from Craignure. We had a very nice meal at the Glenforsa Hotel just outside Salen. We did all the usual things - Tobermory, Calgary Beach, boat trip to Staffa and the Treshnish Islands, Iona, Duart Castle. The younger and fitter members of the party did both Ben More and the ridge walk at Dun da Ghaoithe.

A lovely well appointed cabin, near a shop, petrol station and a couple of hotels for eating out, plus Taste of Mull on the door step. A great location for exploring the whole island. Hidden in the trees was nice for privacy, but some people may need help carrying suitcases. Comments. 3 bulbs gone in a main lounge light. Too dark in kitchen area and bedrooms. More strip-light under cabinets and clear shades in bedrooms would help. Most people these days expect internet access, especially useful on rainy days and for contacting people when general phone signals poor on the island.

Tips:

To make the most of travelling the island, get a good map. The OS maps 1:25,000 are detailed, but you need 3, all double sided and really awkward to use. Other maps are available locally. We found the boat trips excellent value for money.

Really friendly hosts. The cabin was spotlessly clean and was extremely well equipped. The location is great for visiting different places on the island. You feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere but are only minutes from the village which has a great Spar shop and hotel.

Tips:

The island is stunning with fantastic views round every corner. There is wildlife to be seen everywhere - eagles, otters and deer to name a few. The walking is great whether you want a scenic flat walk or a walk up a mountain-we hiked a circular route leading up to Ben More and the views at the top were fantastic. The roads are great for cycling on although you need to be quite fit as they are not flat!

Only thing that might be improved was the lack of wi-fi, as mobile reception was very patchy throughout our stay

Lovely setting and friendly and helpful hosts. Also taste of mull at the end of the drive is a perfect companion for quick takeaway food.

Tips:

We visited for the mull rally but there is so much to see and do. Otter spotting. Staffs tours. We have walked up Ben more. Plus countless other activities.

Hello, Internet would be a major improvement, usually internet helps travellers to plan their hobbies during the stay. Anything else, the lodge was very nice and nothing else is missing to my mind.

Welcoming and cosy. Sauna was a bonus. Missed having a washing machine (went through a lot of clothes due to the weather) but a decent laundrette is literally around the corner.

Tips:

Keep your eyes peeled. Spotted all sorts of wildlife just driving around. Dolphins and otters on the ferry crossing between Fionphort and Iona was definitely a highlight.

We really enjoyed our stay in the cabin one at the Hart of Mull. The building itself was lovely and had bags of charm. There were only a couple of little niggles, but we knew about most of these before we arrived. We got a later ferry than we expected to, and this means we arrived at night. There wasn’t much in the way of signage so it made finding the site slightly tricky. Though we knew about the pay-as-you-go electricity meter, this was slightly annoying as it felt a bit like we were having to pay for something that should’ve been included in the accommodation cost. The bath was lovely and there was ample hot water. However, though my partner did not have too much difficulty with the shower, I found the temperature fluctuated quite a bit and this was a bit annoying on the occasions that I used it. The wood fired sauna was great and we enjoyed using it.

Tips:

As it takes quite a while to drive around the island, we would recommend the sea eagle Watch and a trip to Tobermory to other visitors.

Thank you for your feed back. We are sorry you did not like the coin meter but we found this the fair way to cover electricity with the average cost for the week less than £6. Please let me explain we found some people leaving heaters on and windows open and we ending up with rather large bills, so the choice to put up accommodation cost to all or keep the cost down and put in the meter. Which we have found has cut the electricity down by over half as it makes people think and turn of the heaters while out and this also makes the cabins safer. Sorry about the shower I can only think its a water pressure problem but will look in to it. Glad you enjoyed the sauna We always say we are on the end of a phone and don't mind people phoning for directions or any help before or during their stay.

Stayed there in 2cabins with friends; cabins are position in a little woodland and although close to the road and each other they are very private; great for BBQs in the evening. Location is perfect for exploring all corners of the Mull ;only 15min from ferry and from Tobermory as well as Lakes, otters and all kind of wildlife. Highly recommended!!!

Tips:

Fishing at Tobermory's lighthouse; fresh mussels from the farm (£2/2kg - never had it so fresh and tasty); Calgary beach to name just a few.... Anywhere you go it’s beautiful and there are things to do and wildlife to enjoy

This is the best equipped self-catering holiday cottage we've ever been to. The Taste of Mull food van round the corner is great if you don't feel like cooking. Beds are a little narrow, especially if you are used to a super king size- but it's holiday time! I couldn't get the song "In a cottage in a wood" out of my mind. The cabin is secluded from others but not isolated.

Tips:

If you want to eat in a restaurant it is best to pre-book. If you are coeliac - bring your own supplies, although some basics can be purchased on the island, it is limited. Also if you intend to go hiking ensure you include a tick remover in your equipment list. Mull is beautiful with loads to explore.

We stayed in cabin 2 at Hart of Mull and it was a perfect base for our visit to Mull. Nice and cosy cabin within walking distance of the shop in Salen but the secluded and quiet location of the cabin, surrounded by trees was perfect. Tim and Diane have recently opened their Taste of Mull take away food business on the site which is excellent, definitely try the venison burgers or fish n chips. It's clear Tim and Diane have put a lot of effort and love into their cabins, pods and take away business and I would definitely recommend a stay at Hart of Mull.
