My family and I have stayed here several times over the years as it has everything we need, it's clean, fresh and very welcoming. The garden is a lovely tranquil spot to enjoy morning coffee and breakfast The location is great, it is family friendly and great that we can take our dog. I highly recommend this place to family and friends whom have also enjoyed it here.
Spey Cottage is ideally situated, just a short 5 minute walk down to the centre of Toberymory where you will find lovely shops, pubs and restaurants. Beautiful and tastefully decorated throughout, with everything we needed to make our trip easy and enjoyable. This was my second trip to Spey Cottage, I loved it the first time but was even more delighted on this trip. It has been tastefully upgraded to have that feeling of luxury (love the new bathroom) without losing the character of the cottage. I was particularly excited about the addition of the woodburning stove - it really added to that feeling of a cosy, fishing cottage.
Tobermory was just the place we needed as a family to relax and explore. Plenty to do and places to see, or just sit at the harbour and watch the world go by. My son and husband enjoyed an afternoon learning how to fly fish (unfortunately they all got away but we made do with wonderful fish and chips from the van on the pier!). We had a great day out at Duart Castle learning all about the Maclean Clan, and then a visit to Calgary Beach - our dog adored the beautiful, white sands!
Eating out in Tobermory is easy - from lovely pub food, fish and chips or more high end restaurants for something a bit more special.
Writing this review has made me think .... time to book a return trip, so many happy memories!
Spey cottage is in a really good location and has everything you need for a perfect holiday. We were lucky with the weather and enjoyed some great wildlife sightings. Firsts for us were: Dolphins, Minky Whale, Manx Sheer-waters and Arctic Skua. Plus some of our favorites White tailed Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Stone-chat, Wheatear and Turnstones.
The facilities in the cottage are first class and we would definitely recommend it to friends and family. Parking is easy and it's just a short walk down into Tobermory with some good restaurants and a well stocked Coop. If your doing a lot of shopping I'd recommend using the car, but going out for a meal in the evening and walking back was fine.
We had a lovely stay over the Easter period. The cottage is well equipped and is in an ideal location. Shops are easy to get to. The cottage is clean and tidy. We would definitely stay again, in fact this was our second stay. The owners are very approachable as well.
Fabulous dog friendly holiday cottage with great views of the harbour and Sound of Mull from the upstairs windows, take binoculars. Tastefully furnished, decorated and very well equipped. Amazingly powerful overhead shower for after a long day's walking and exploring of the wonderful Island of Mull. Lovely gardens to relax in with a late afternoon glass of wine, with interesting plants for colour all through the year. Awash with bluebells during our stay. Good food and entertainment to be had on Main Street, a few minutes walk down the hill. Enjoyed this place immensely.
