Fonn Aline,
Glenaros, Salen
Fonn Aline (Gaelic for “Beautiful Sound”) is a characterful wooden two storey cottage built in 1905 for a Miss Elise Mott.
The self catering accommodation occupies an elevated position above the road, with spectacular views across the Aros River Estuary to Aros Castle and the Sound of Mull.
It is situated centrally on the island so ideal for exploring both the South and North areas of Mull. It is perfect for birdwatching, photography, walking or just relaxing and looking out to sea. The small village of Salen where you will find a restaurant, hotel and well stocked shop is only a 5 minute drive or 20 minute walk along the coast road, where you may see otters and seals on the rocks.
The cottage provides basic accommodation in a lovely country peaceful setting.

History of Fonn Aline


The first is that it is really a misnomer. Miss Mott wanted a Gaelic name and asked a native Gaelic speaker for a translation of Beautiful Sound, as in Sound of Mull. He misunderstood and gave her the word for sound as in music!

•The other is that the name is correct and commemorates the death of a legendary piper whom local folklore says may have been buried nearby.

•On a quiet night you can almost imagine the haunting sound of the pipes drifting across from the waters edge
