We had a fantastic week at Glenaros on Mull. And we were so lucky to have had beautiful weather too. Kate’s Cottage was lovely and we felt very much at home. It was lovely to be woken by the farm noises rather than our noisy seagulls!! The only down side to our stay was that the parking was a little tricky due to the nature of the terrain in the cottage grounds and also to the turning of the car when reversing back out of the drive. This was our only concern! We would also like to thank you for the welcome biscuits which we enjoyed. Thank you.
We thoroughly enjoyed Mull but not the number of single track roads!! I think our highlight was a visit to Staffa to see Fingals Cave and the puffins. But each day we found somewhere new to visit and we loved the walking and the mountains.

A really nice cottage, well appointed, good location, (view over the Sound, and good for reaching other parts of the island), Very peaceful, just the sound of leaves in the trees. A stream running through the garden, visiting sheep and thrushes were unexpected treats. Effective heating, even though the days were warm we were glad of it in the evenings Would certainly stay there again

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!
