Lovely cottage and an enjoyable week on Mull. Calgary bay, Ulva, Iona and bice walks from Tobermory

Our 5th stay at this lovely cottage. Enjoyed seeing the visiting sheep who jump over the wall and eat the clematis. Did lots of birdwatching this year and will be back. Thank you!

Lovely comfy house - so hot this week. Saw sea eagle catching a fish and 2 buzzards hovering around it - great display.

We echo many of the comments here and had a great week. Wonderful walks every day - Glengorm, Ulva, Calgary beach and Aros Park but the highlight was 'Mull Magic' (a must) and two pensioners (ages totalling over 150 years) climbed Ben More. Hardly any rain. We loved it all.

Wow, what a week! Not a drop of rain and bright sunshine. Amazing cottage, so well equipped with everything we could need. Sealife Surveys whale watching trip was amazing. Saw harbour porpoises, dolphins and minke whales. Staffa tour to see the puffins was great. Good burger at Glengorm and great lunch at Duart Castle. Enjoyed Tobermory Bakery and fish and chips from mobile van on pier.Children also loved the Mull Aquarium and feeding the sea life after hours! Amazing holiday, thank you.

3rd time here and the best yet. Fab weather and fantastic wildlife. Saw our first corncrake and a golden eagle's nest. Café Fish and the Mishnish Hotel also excellent, recommend the lobster. 4 hour whale watch trip not to be missed. So much to do, so little time!

Thank you for your warm welcome and lovely 'home from home' cottage. An ideal location from which to explore Mull and the surrounding islands

5th May 2018 Gwynne & Kathryn, Hexham

A lovely cottage, suitable for all weathers!!  Tobermory has lots to offer: we enjoyed the bakery - pies, cakes and coffee! Tackle and Books is a good shop. Good fish at Macgochans. A trip to Iona by car and ferry in the sunshine is a wonderful day out. The Mishnish is not to be missed.

What a lovely, cosy and comfy cottage! We had a wonderful time here, great weather and will definitely come back. Thank you for the wine and biscuits.

Well we made it at last! Mull did not disappoint. The weather was changeable but didn't stop us getting out and about and Russell fitted in the inevitable round of golf. We can recommend the following cafes:
1. At Calgary where there is an art gallery and sculpture trail
2. At the Isle of Mull cheese shop - great for settling down with the newspaper.
3.In the bakery on the Main Street - try the bakewell slice.
4. At Glengorm Castle
The castles and beaches aren't bad either! We were not lucky enough to see any otters but saw seals in abundance at Croig (30ish). The cottage is lovely to come home to with everything we needed. Thank you for making it such a special stay.

Very good accommodation. Lots of room, especially bathrooms. Despite the weather  we had a good time visiting Calgary, Iona and many other places

Had a lovely time on Mull. Cottage gorgeous with everything we nooed. Weather not the best but it hasn't stopped us getting out walking/cycling. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the wine and biscuits!
