4th August 2017 Barbara & Pierre Hampton Hall
Wonderful location and cosy cottage, a warm welcome with lots to do. Thanks for the hospitality and thoughtfulness.
Left on Jul 5, 2017 for a stay in Mar 2017
This cottage is beautiful. I visited with my friend and we had a great mid-week stay. The cottage is beautifully decorated and had everything we needed during the stay. The bottle of wine and biscuits on arrival was a lovely personal touch. The area outside was lovely and we borrowed a chimnea from an empty cottage and had a fire one evening. The location is easy to get to and walk to Tobermory. We will definitely be back to visit.
27th May 2017 Sarah & Andrew, Staffordshire
Very pleased with the cottage, ideal location and ideal accommodation. Would recommend to everyone.

A much needed relaxing holiday. A beautiful cottage on an island that never loses it's magic. We hope to return.
27th August 2016 Scott & Isla Wallace
Perfect cottage for two - we had some lovely weather for Staffa and Iona. Breathtaking scenery to the South. Relaxing week
6th August 2016 Jacqui & Steve, Fochabers
Stables Cottage provided everything we needed for a relaxing stay on Mull. Saw golden eagles, sea eagles and otters with Discover Mull Wildlife Tour, visited Staffa and Lunga with Staffa Tours. Unfortunately we didn't see any sealife but the puffins on Lunga made up for this. Can recommend Highland Cottage, Mishnish Hotel and especially Café Fish. Iona well worth a visit.
30th July 2016 Paul & Pam, Co. Durham
Lovely, cosy cottage, explored the island by local transport (to Iona), boat and wildlife tour. Highlights include white tailed sea eagles, golden eagles, sea otters, basking sharks and manx shearwater.
16th July 2016 Christine & Bob, Glasgow
A very warm welcome. Appreciated the cake and wine. Cottage very nice but could do with some attention in parts
2nd July 2016 Barry & Grace Richards, Durham City
Had a fabulous holiday despite the mostly wet weather. Too wet for flying eagles but otters obliged. Enjoyed visits to Ulva, Calgary Bay and Glengorm. Can recommend Café Fish and Hebridean Lodge - not cheap but hey, we are on holiday! Stables Cottage is a lovely, cosy bolt hole - thanks for the wine and biscuits, greatly appreciated.
11th June 2016 Megan, Carlisle
What a fabulous week I have had - I've managed to pack in Iona Abbey, Staffa, Duart Castle, Lochbuie, Tobermory Distillery plus MacCulloch's fossil tree and the Burg - all a must see. A pity I have to leave tomorrow. This cottage is a fantastic, cosy little place to unwind after a days hiking - thank you so very much. I raise a glass to two lovely hosts - thank you!
23rd April 2016 John & Nancy, Stirling

We had a fantastic week on Mull, as usual it never disappoints. Really enjoyed our stay at the cottage, everything we needed in an idyllic setting. We even made friends with the horses.

Nasin & Sashia
Our first visit to Mull and we enjoyed the beauty of the island and comforts of the cottage, though some TLC is need here. The dining table and ironing board need attention!! Bin bags and some bits and bobs which we cannot bring should be supplied. A trip to Staffa, Dervaig and Glengorm and the scenic route is highly recommended. Calgary Bay was just glorious. Thank you for the welcoming drink and biscuits. A lovely cottage!!

A lovely first stay at the Stables. Have been coming to Mull for 15 years and the first stay with our 1 year old, Lily, who loved it! Lucky with the weather! Had an excellent trip to Kilchoan, saw sea eagles at Ardmore, Golden Eagle at Loch Ba, deer and otters and seals at Salen. A magical place to come. The Stables are a perfect base.

Had a lovely week in Mull, 1st visit here and will definitely be back. Cottage is lovely and cosy, just right for the 3 of us (well 2 really) Weather has been really good only 2 wet days which is really good for the west coat of Scotland. Had a great trip to Staffa, long drive to Fionphort but worth it, even saw an otter and red deer on the drive down. Staffa was amazing, Fingals cave especially Iona well work the visit too. Good bike ride to Glengorm, good coffee and cakes too then returned via Ardmore forest. Also visited Calgary bay, great when sun is shining. All in all a great holiday and don't forget to visit the standing stones and the chapel site at the back of Baliscate.

Very Comfortable Cottage, though we were disappointed that the DVD does not work on the TV and no working light above the sink in the bathroom. We spoke to the owners on the 19th but as we leave today the situation is the same. The Island & Wildlife is absolutely stunning! Owners reply: Bathroom light was on order and was replaced following week. DVD problem unable to resolve as integrated into TV

“Great stay on Mull !!”
Reviewed 12 Apr 2014
We stayed in the smallest of a group of cottages in the grounds of Baliscate House. Ours was an ideal size for two spotlessly clean and lovely and warm. It was also in and ideal position to tour Mull and walk into Tobermory. We hope to return to Mull and would book through this company again.

We saw Otters at Loch Beg & loch Na keal, Eagles (Golden & White tailed) as we walked on the path from Calgary Beach (to the right) a pad of Dolphins where the ferry crosses from Fionnphort to Iona. Amazing! No wonder people keep coming back. Eat (book!) at the Fish Café in Tobermory the mussels are delicious (best Rick has ever had) as are the squat lobsters!
