We had a wonderful week at the cottage and it was exactly what we expected, peaceful and tranquil with some friendly farm animals for company. We went with the idea of having a break away from it all and weren’t disappointed, the cottage was very well equipped for home cooking, the wood burning stove did a wonderful job of making the place toasty (it was November after all) and it was far enough away from Tobermory to be peaceful but close enough to be able to eat out a few times. We’d highly recommend Macgochans for good pub grub and a decent drop of beer and also the Mishdish restaurant in the Mishdish Hotel for the yummy mussels. The cottage is an excellent base for exploring the Island by car and also we managed a couple of very pleasant walks around Aros Park and Calgary Beach where we saw seals, otters deer and more eagles than you could shake a stick at. We’d love to think that we could return and explore further
Erray Cottage is a cosy, clean and well equipped cottage. It is larger than it appears in photos. Just outside Tobermory, it is on the edge of a working farm. Surrounded by cows, sheep, ponies and the cockerel! Two rams in the field opposite enjoy having a head rub. We saw deer from the living room window! Tobermory has some lovely places to eat out and the bakery is great for sandwiches and cake. Highly recommend a trip to Iona. Saw lots of wildlife including - otters, seals, fallow deer and red deer. Hope we can return soon.
Had a lovely week at Erray Cottage , far enough away from the main town to enjoy the surrounding countryside but close enough to have an enjoyable walk to and from the restaurants and shops. Highly recommend Macgogans and the seafood chowder ( had to go back 3 times because our 9 year old loved it so much).If you don't want to go too far there is plenty to see and buy!! browsing round the shops in Tobermory.
The cottage itself is a home from home with all the amenities you would need for a comfortable and relaxing stay, very clean and welcoming. For those who cannot do without it the wifi is excellent and you will also find this FOC in the restaurants in Tobermory. Look out for the lovely Red Setter who lives in the farm next door and also the Tobermory cat! We saw him, honestly!!
Would recommend Duarte Castle, Calgary Beach and a visit to Iona
