Cottage
Completely re-furbished to bring out its original features, this cottage by the sea, has exposed stone walls with original fireplaces. Quirky artwork and an eclectic library means that this little house offers more than a bland holiday apartment. The island provides fantastic opportunities to explore the natural environment - otters can be seen in the harbour, there are boat trips to see whales and dolphins, and landrover wildlife tours to see stags, seals and sea eagles. There is plenty of history, with castles, churches and stone circles, and a rich cultural calendar provided by the Mull Theatre, An Tobar Arts Centre and numerous arts groups and festivals. If it rains, the house itself has a fully equipped kitchen in which to perfect your culinary skills, and the Co-op is a few doors...Completely re-furbished to bring out its original features, this cottage by the sea, has exposed stone walls with original fireplaces.

If it rains, the house itself has a fully equipped kitchen in which to perfect your culinary skills, and the Co-op is a few doors away in case you need more ingredients. One smaller room with a single bed is designed for children. The accommodation caters for four adults comfortably although a child could be added to that number. It is not ideal for very young children as there is no bath (just two showers). Access requires climbing 12 outside steps and all sleeping accommodation is upstairs, so it is not suitable for those unable to climb stairs. China and high quality cotton sheets and towels provide a country -house feel in a seaside cottage. you can have it all! More

Hi stayed here when competing in the annual Mull rally. Accommodation was great and very comfortable and location was excellent being bang in the centre of Tobermory's main street, but with it sitting slightly back from the road it was ultra peaceful. Lovely views over...More

We only stayed on Mull for 3 nights and could really have done with at least 5. We would have liked to spend more time on Ulva, and also take a trip to Iona. For us (4 middle aged adults and a 20yr old) Tobermory...More

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty to do - Whale and dolphin watching, wildlife tours to see nesting sea eagles. There are otters in the bay and the famous ginger Tobermory cat can often be seen in our garden - escaping from his fans. Bikes can be hired from Browns the ironmongers. There is much to see of historical interest - get your bearings from the local museum about 100 yards away along the Main Street. Within walking distance there is a distillery,a chocolate factory, an ice-cream shop, a bakery and a cheese farm - what more does anyone need.
