We had a lovely time on Mull with lots of sunshine. Our most memorable starts at the Carsaig Pier where seals were sunbathing on the rocks and passes the Nun's Cave, used by feral goats for shelter. We also liked the remoteness on the track to the Burg near Tiroran and the beauty of Iona, Lochbuie and Loch Ba with spectacular mountain views.

It's October, we must be in Mull and back at Kates.  Very wet underfoot and rained every day but not all day and mainly at night, so made the most of the better weather visiting Calgary, Uisken, Croggan, Lochbuie, Tiroran, Bunessan and Tobermory. Lip Na Cloiche is well worth a visit - a wonderful garden and many tropical plants. Café Fish still the best place to eat. Salen Hotel bar food is very good - excellent Cullen Skink. Dined on mussels from Inverlussa, Glengorm venison pie, local sausages, black pudding and cheeses, not to mention the local gin - Whitetail.

Loved the cottage and its location, the walk to Salen was great! Went running around the local area, very boggy with all the rain but we made the most of it. Visited Iona, Old Byre Heritage Centre, Tobermory and Aros Park to name a few.The Glass Barn at the Tobermory Cheese Farm was excellent for food, in a great location and setting. Enjoyed driving around this beautiful island - we will be back!

History of Kates Cottage

Formerly known as Old Kate’s Cottage, the building is named after a noted occupant, Kate Cameron, who reached her century in the cottage in the early 1900’s.

At that time it was a traditional single storey bothy, the upper floor being added by Colum’s father, David, at the beginning of the Second World War.

The local pheasants can often be found scratching around in the garden for food, but catching one for the pot is not permitted! However, there is a productive Victoria Plum tree which guests are welcome to enjoy the fruits of in season - but please leave some behind for the next guests and the owner!
