Despite the poor weather - a LOT of rain - we have enjoyed Mull, especially the trip to Staffa during which we saw a large pod of dolphins. Day trip to Iona - don't miss the excellent scones at Argyll Hotel. Enjoyed the art walk and carrot cake at Calgary. Excellent dinner at the Hebridean Lodge and Cafe Fish. Beautiful accommodation at Blacksmith's - will miss the horses and deer we saw every evening.

Great 1st visit to Mull made all the better by Blacksmiths accommodation. Lots of super days out, mixed weather so got the jigsaw finished! Staffa is a must as is Iona, Uisken, Loch na Keal.......

Our 6th visit to this lovely comfortable cottage. This year we were visited by a large friendly red deer looking over the wall looking over the wall and eating the clematis! We had fabulous weather and will be back. Thank you!

Terrific week, weather great most of the time. Loved the accommodation, well equipped and situated. Great return to Mull for us after 44 years. Many highlights including the Highland games, Iona, Calgary bay and wonderful food!

27th June 2019    Butterfield's & Harwood's, Lancashire

1st class accommodation, beautifully decorated and well equipped. Cycling around Mull fantastic, views stunning with amazing weather. Staffa trip highly recommended, saw dolphins, seals, puffins and many other seabirds. Hebridean Lodge well worth a visit as is the Mishnish pub on the harbour. Many thanks!

Lovely stay, every day different. Mull eagle watch and puffins on Lunga great.

The house and the island are beautiful, we don't want to leave. The weather? A bit of everything!

27th October 2018    Debbie, Rob, Marg & Steve, Wirral

Beautiful cottage...thank you! Weather was awful but Mull was beautiful. Calgary beach (and teashop and gallery) proved to be a great day out. Iona was, once again, a spiritual experience. Lovely!

Lovely cottage, fantastic location. Great first week on Mull - we'll be back!

31st August 2018    The Beecher family, Holmfirth

Brilliant cottage, clean and well equipped - loved it. Had a fantastic week on Mull - boat trip toFingal's Cave is a must. Village Bakery's coffee and fresh bread a must too. Fantastic week, couldn't be better!

24th August 2018    The Wilson family, Gateshead

Our first visit to Mull (after visiting many Scottish islands) and we have loved it - wish we had come here years ago! After 12 consecutive years holidaying in Scotland we finally saw an otter (while waiting for the Staffa boat to set sail). Loved everything about it and a huge surprise was the choice of vegan options in the village. The chocolate and coconut tarte in Macgochans is fabulous.

Lovely cottage and an enjoyable week on Mull. Calgary bay, Ulva, Iona and nice walks from Tobermory

28th July 2018    Mary, David, Pat & Roger, Newcastle upon Tyne

Our 5th stay at this lovely cottage. Enjoyed seeing the visiting sheep who jump over the wall and eat the clematis. Did lots of birdwatching this year and will be back. Thank you!

14th July 2018    Ruth, Paul & Simon

We had a fantastic time and recommend everything, especially Staffa and Calgary beach.

30th June 2018    Pauline

Lovely comfy house - so hot this week. Saw sea eagle catching a fish and 2 buzzards hovering around it - great display.

23rd June 2018    Richard, Vanessa, John & Penny

We echo many of the comments here and had a great week. Wonderful walks every day - Glengorm, Ulva, Calgary beach and Aros Park but the highlight was 'Mull Magic' (a must) and two pensioners (ages totalling over 150 years) climbed Ben More. Hardly any rain. We loved it all.

2nd June 2018    The Boddy family, Banbury

Wow, what a week! Not a drop of rain and bright sunshine. Amazing cottage, so well equipped with everything we could need. Sealife Surveys whale watching trip was amazing. Saw harbour porpoises, dolphins and minke whales. Staffa tour to see the puffins was great. Good burger at Glengorm and great lunch at Duart Castle. Enjoyed Tobermory Bakery and fish and chips from mobile van on pier.Children also loved the Mull Aquarium and feeding the sea life after hours! Amazing holiday, thank you.

26th May 2018    Martyn, Chris & Elliot, Livingston

As ever, a great place and a great stay! Love it here and will go home totally relaxed.

19th May 2018    Chris & Claire Grove, Devon

3rd time here and the best yet. Fab weather and fantastic wildlife. Saw our first corncrake and a golden eagle's nest. Café Fish and the Mishnish Hotel also excellent, recommend the lobster. 4 hour whale watch trip not to be missed. So much to do, so little time!

12th May 2018    Sue & Lesley, Edinburgh 

Thank you for your warm welcome and lovely 'home from home' cottage. An ideal location from which to explore Mull and the surrounding islands

5th May 2018 Gwynne & Kathryn, Hexham

A lovely cottage, suitable for all weathers!!  Tobermory has lots to offer: we enjoyed the bakery - pies, cakes and coffee! Tackle and Books is a good shop. Good fish at Macgochans. A trip to Iona by car and ferry in the sunshine is a wonderful day out. The Mishnish is not to be missed.

26th April 2018    Leask & MacCallum, Tarbert

Great as usual, thanks!

24th February 2018    Paul & Chris, Settle

Blacksmiths cottage and its location could not have been better. Had a lovely peaceful break. Thank you.

3rd November 2017    Judit & Rico, Germany

What a lovely, cosy and comfy cottage! We had a wonderful time here, great weather and will definitely come back. Thank you for the wine and biscuits.

22nd October 2017    Claire & Russell Davies, Lancashire

Well we made it at last! Mull did not disappoint. The weather was changeable but didn't stop us getting out and about and Russell fitted in the inevitable round of golf. We can recommend the following cafes:
1. At Calgary where there is an art gallery and sculpture trail
2. At the Isle of Mull cheese shop - great for settling down with the newspaper.
3.In the bakery on the Main Street - try the bakewell slice.
4. At Glengorm Castle
The castles and beaches aren't bad either! We were not lucky enough to see any otters but saw seals in abundance at Croig (30ish). The cottage is lovely to come home to with everything we needed. Thank you for making it such a special stay.

9th September 2017    Sue, Jim, Kath & Mike, Wigan & Thurso

Very good accommodation. Lots of room, especially bathrooms. Despite the weather  we had a good time visiting Calgary, Iona and many other places

19th August 2017    The Simpson family, Wensleydale

Had a lovely time on Mull. Cottage gorgeous with everything we nooed. Weather not the best but it hasn't stopped us getting out walking/cycling. Would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the wine and biscuits!

12th August 2017   Helen & Jim, Dunblane

We have all had a lovely week in this lovely cottage. Thank you for the wine and shortbread.
