We had a fantastic stay in this beautiful cottage - thank you so much. We love Mull and were visiting our son and daughter in law who live in Tobermory. We have travelled around this beautiful island and have seen sea eagles and golden eagles as well as lots of other beautiful birds and wildlife

19th June 2021    Alison & Chris

A wonderful place to stay for our first visit to Mull. The cottage is fabulous - so comfortable. Mull exceeded our expectations - scenery, mountains, beaches and wildlife! We will definitely be back. Thank you for the wine and biscuits, they went down very well.

14th September 2019    The Frier family, Dalgety Bay

Thank you for the wine & shortbread - lovely welcome. We had a great week on Mull. Day trip to Iona, Calgary Bay, Aros Park, cheese farm and the aquarium. Loved the calamari from the chippy van. Cottage was lovely and perfect at nights with the fire on eating and drinking.

7th September 2019    Fallows family

Great week in a very clean, comfortable and well equipped cottage - really exceeded our expectations. We would recommend a trip to Ardalanish weavers where there is an amazing beach, eagle watching on Loch na Keal and a visit to the cheese farm. Fab time!

Lovely week spent here in Tobermory. Weather at the start of the week beautiful.

Lovely accommodation, brilliant hosts, brilliant holiday. Can't wait to return. Many thanks.

13th April 2019    John, Peggy, Jessie & Grace MacLeod, Isle of Skye

We enjoyed a very comfortable stay in your well appointed, spacious cottage. Location just out of town was just right and with such good weather it was nice to sit outside in the sun.We covered almost every road on Mull, met some lovely people and the views are all great. Hope to be back again. Many thanks!

6th April 2019    Toghill's & Williams

Beautiful cottage, comfortable and equipped with everything you could need. The Isle of Mull is a beautiful place and we will definitely try to return. Thanks very much for helping our stay to be so great.

23rd February 2019    Jenni & Jon Berry

Our first ever visit to the Isle of Mull and thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The scenery is amazing and takes your breath away. The people of Tobermory are very friendly...especially in The Mishnish. The cottage is beautiful and we would recommend it to friends and family. Can't wait to return and maybe this time see the famous Tobermory cat!

5th January 2019    The Broadfield's, Lancaster

Another fantastic stay in this beautiful cottage. We love coming to Mull and are always made very welcome by John & Hylda. A fantastic New Years Eve, really enjoyed the fireworks. Lots of walks at Aros Park, buggy friendly around the lake. Great play park up the hill near the school in Tobermory.

6th October 2018  The Smith family, Newcastle upon Tyne

It was our first visit to Mull and we loved every minute! Gardeners is a cosy, well equipped cottage which was a comfort after long walks in the beautiful scenery seeing otters, deer and an eagle. We enjoyed trips to Iona and Ulva as well as pottering around Tobermory. We ate fantastic food at Café Fish, Mish Dish and the Boathouse at Ulva as well as cooking local produce. We will no doubt visit Mull again! Thank you!

29th September 2018    The Oswald's, Germany

It was our first stay on the Isle of Mull and we have had a fantastic fortnight at this location. The cosy and comfortable cottage was a perfect accommodation to explore this beautiful island. Despite mixed weather we climbed Ben More, did long coast walks at Calgary and Carsaig, Iona and Loch Ba...and of course lovely Tobermory. We enjoyed the people on Mull as well as the fabulous scenery and landscapes. Thanks for everything, we will be back!

15th September 2018    Steve & Paula Kaye, Chester

Enjoyed returning to this warm cottage after days cycling, walking and exploring. Mixed weather but enjoyed a sunny day on Ulva. Good cycle route from Calgary with excellent lunch at Calgary Farmhouse.. Excellent meal at Hebridean Lodge. Don't miss Baliscate standing stones on a clear evening!

8th September 2018    June, Tony & Jill Nixon, Sale, Cheshire

A lovely cottage - comfortable, warm and with everything we needed. Enjoyed a lovely day on Iona and trips round the island. Thank you for the wine and biscuits. The wine has been drunk, the biscuits are being taken home and will be eaten there to remind us of Mull!

1st September 2018    The MacMillan Family, Dollar & North Yorks

Cottage all we hoped for. Excellent lobster at Café Fish - excellent crab at The Boathouse Ulva - excellent fish & chips at the fisherman's pier.

18th August 2018    The Jacksons & Giles

As family have been part of this island for decades we thought we knew all the best places until we arrived here! So cosy and comfortable. Our 8 year old and 4 year old loved their twin room with TV! The house is fantastic and the support if required is wonderful. We are planning to return soon and will definitely be coming back to this cottage. Grandparents loved the place too and want to take the showers home!

11th August 2018    The Mead family, Newcastle upon Tyne

Had a lovely stay in this comfortable cottage - the ideal base for exploring the island and introducing the boys to the Isle of Mull. Would recommend taking a whale watching trip, visiting Iona and of course, Calgary Beach. The Tobermory Bakery does amazing cakes and bread, Café Fish does brilliant seafood and the kids loved the aquarium and glass making on rainy days.

4th August 2018    The Oldham family, Aberdeen

We had a fantastic week on Mull and the cottage provided all we could ask for. The proximity to Tobermory meant it was easy to access restaurants, shops etc. We would highly recommend the MishDish restaurant - excellent food. We took a boat trip to Staffa and Iona which were both stunning places and the wildlife on Staffa was incredible to see. The cottage was comfortable and homely, thank you for your hospitality. Overall an excellent week and we are sad to leave.

28th July 2018    Higgs' Sharps, Wade and a Paterson

We have had a good time climbing the Grahams and cycling the island. Great location here and good food in Tobermory. Cottage well equipped to a good standard.

21st July 2018    The Paton family

We have had a great break on Mull. Lots of lovely walks, scenery and wildlife. Loved finding the Tobermory Rocks hidden around.

14th July 2018     Agnes Vilain, Paris

A wonderful week in a beautiful house where we tried Scottish cuisine. Tobermory is an extraordinary village with lovely walks to Aros Pier and the lighthouse. We had a magnificent trip to Ulva and and a fabulous voyage with Staffa Tours. We liked the welcome of the Scots and the kindness of the local people.

30th June 2018    Tracy & Peter Mortimer, South Wales

We have had a fantastic week in your cottage here on the Isle of Mull! Wall to wall sunshine all week - trip to Ulva was fab and the walk up to Ben More amazing - try it! Thanks for the wine and shortbread, just the ticket after a long walk. Sad to leave but all good things must come to an end... Thanks again

23rd June 2018    The MacDonald family, South Queensferry

What a beautiful cottage! Cosy and comfortable with everything we needed for our first family holiday. Finn slept so brilliantly in the travel cot that we're tempted to take it with us! It's been a great base for exploring Tobermory and we would recommend day trips to Ulva and Iona although they are a bit further afield. Also make sure you pop next door to the Tobermory Fish Company to stock up on seafood goodies!
The cottage has been perfect, thank you for your hospitality. We're already making plans to come back - and bring the grandparents!

9th June 2018    Jill & Chris Wood, Warwickshire

Our second visit to Gardener's Cottage, we enjoyed the first so much! Thank you for the shortbread and wine, much appreciated! Enjoyed our meal at Café Fish again and also had a great lunch at Am Birlinn. Another great sea eagle trip with Martin and Alex, watching the sea eagles again. Great whale watching with Sealife Surveys, dolphins, minke whales, seals, porpoises and numerous birds. Will have to come back - still not seen a golden eagle!

2nd June 2018    Janet & Robert Lindsay, Sheffield

Lovely cottage, perfect for touring the island. Thank you for the wine and shortbread, we have had a wonderful 2 weeks. The weather has been gorgeous and we have been to every bit of Mull, plus Ulva and Iona. Lovely walks and beautiful scenery. We loved a whale watching trip with sea life surveys, seeing minke whales, dolphins and porpoise, plus numerous birds. The wildlife has been spectacular. We enjoyed meals at Café Fish, Spice of Mull and the excellent fish and chip van on the harbour. A super 2 weeks, thank you!

18th April 2018    Goldy & Wilding Family

We have had a very enjoyable stay. The house was spacious and well equipped. We have had 4 seasons in one day but came prepared. Our very pleasurable trip was to Ulva. A good walk in the peace and quiet and a joy to see the primroses out. Interesting chickens and cockerel!

28th March 2018  Horrocks & Riddell Families

We have had a lovely week, the cottage is brilliant. Beds are warm and very comfortable. Kitchen has everything you need. The radiators seemed to have a life of their own but it was not a problem as we always had the log burner! Many thanks!

2nd September 2017   Barry Baker, Nottinghamshire

This is our second stay in Gardeners Cottage, such great accommodation, we love it. The weather has been mixed this week but that hasn't stopped us experiencing all Mull has to offer and we have seen some fantastic wildlife and eaten like kings and queens. Strongly recommend Hebridean Lodge, fantastic cooking. The mochas at the tobermory Chocolate Shop are worth a visit and you might see dolphins in the harbour, we did yesterday! Til the next time!

26th August 2017    Machard family

Had a lovely holiday in beautiful Tobermory, amazing scenery despite mixed weather. Great cottage, had everything you could ask for from a holiday let (more like 'home from home'). We'll definitely recommend to friends if they are visiting the area and will come again if we visit Mull in the future.

12th August 2017    Drage family, Northamptonshire

Wonderful holiday in a great cottage!

Left on Aug 21, 2017 for a stay in Aug 2017
Fabulous cottage, photos don't do it justice. Well designed, sturdy build, deceptively spacious, modern fittings and decor, well equipped kitchen, minutes from Tobermory (a well stocked Co-op, a petrol station, fabulous bakery, bar and restaurants!!). Great base for exploring the island. Very quiet with the exception of the cockerel at break of day, every day. The cock-a-doodle-doing can be heard in every room 😴

5th August 2017   Smith family

Had a wonderful week in this beautiful cottage. Did a fantastic boat trip with Mull Charters on Loch Na Keal and saw 4 sea eagles. Also loved a trip with Staffa Tours out to Staffa and Lunga where we saw puffins, seals and even a minke whale.
Beautiful beach days at Calgary and Langamull - worth the walk!
Fabulous week - love Mull!

29th July 2017     Walker family, Hurworth, Darlington

The house was perfect for a family of 5. We had a splendid holiday and there was lots to do, despite the changeable weather. Highlights were:
- climbing Ben More on a warm, clear day
- trip to Iona's west coast
- trip and walks across Ulva (great food at Boat House)
- walk around Glengorm Castle and coastline
- Calgary Bay and art gallery
- Antler shop in Tobermory
Great food at Café Fish and Spice of Mull

8th July 2017     David, Fraser, Lyn & Cathryn, Aberdeen & Edinburgh

A great holiday home and wonderful location. The house is extremely comfortable and well equipped. The only problem for us was the lack of BBC reception as we're big fans of tennis (Wimbledon)*. Tobermory itself has great character and Mull is astonishingly beautiful. Calgary beach and pony-trekking were the highlights of our week.

Really enjoyed our stay in the cottage. Lovely accommodation and very well equipped. Good base for exploring the island and popping into Tobermory. Lucky with the weather and saw lots of different wildlife. Paddled at Calgary Bay but a bit nippy for a swim! Café Fish was fabulous but be sure to book. Hope we'll be back again in the future.

Brilliantly appointed cottage near enchanting Tobermory
We have stayed a lot of properties in the UK and abroad and I think that this was the most well-appointed property we have ever stayed. The living area was fantastic and two good-sized bathrooms as well three very comfortable bedrooms. It is about a 10 mile walk down into Tobermory - although probably more like 15 minutes return journey uphill. Only 1 niggle no BBC on the TV - still it enabled us to miss the election!

17th June 2017    Hindsons & Cleasbys, Kendal, Cumbria

Lovely comfortable cottage. Unfortunately we had a wet week apart from one day! First time on Mull but will be back when the sun shines!! Would have like BBC on television.* Loved a visit to Loch Buie. Saw golden eagle, seals etc

10th June 2017     Jill & Chris Wood, Warwickshire

We have really enjoyed our stay in Gardeners Cottage. The cottage is extremely well equipped, probably one of the best we have ever stayed in, certainly in Scotland. We had meals at MacGoghans, Hebridean Lodge (next door) and Café Fish. MacGoghans is great for atmosphere and good pub food. Hebridean Lodgewas great for food. The best meal we had was in Café Fish, excellent food and atmosphere. Also thoroughly recommend the trip to Staffa and Lunga with Turus Mara and especially the trip with Mull Charters run by Martin and his son Alex who is extremely lnowledgeable and passionate about the wildlife. Last day had a beautiful day round Aros Park - all in all an excellent holiday - Thank you!

3rd June 2017     Gallaghers, Saxtons and Donnelly, North Yorkshire

Many thanks for the use of the cottage which was well equipped, comfortable and in a good location. Aweek of mixed weather, but 2 days of blue sky and sunshine.. Enjoyed a boat trip to see the puffins on Lunga and Staffa, visited Ardnamurchan Lighthouse, Sanna Bay and the new Distillery and spent a great day on Ulva. The less good days saw us explore Tobermory, Aros Park, the nearby lighthouse and a walk up the 'crater' loch. A meal at Café Fish is highly recommended. Altogether a great week of activities, views, wildlife and experiences. Two suggestions - sort out the TV reception and providing a large recycling bin.

27th May 2017     Hutchinson family, Bearsden, Glasgow

We've had a lovely week on Mull and the cottage was the perfect base for exploring the island. It had everything we needed and more - thank you. Highlights for us (our daughters are 4 and nearly 2) included the Tobermory aquarium, Aros Park, Calgary Bay, the ferry to Iona and the Cheese Farm. The playground in Tobermory (nr the High School) was a real hit with the girls and we enjoyed a nice family meal at MacGochans. Thanks again for a lovely week.

7th May 2017     Ann & Bob Hurrell, Merseyside

A lovely island, a lovely cottage, lovely weather, what more can you ask? Thankyou for the wine and biscuits.

Excellent Cottage...
We were very happy staying in this cottage for a week. It was clean, well equipped, good furnishings and within walking distance of Tobermory (downhill fine but quite a puff going back!!!). Taxi available if needed! It has 3 bedrooms, 1 king ensuite and 1 king and 1 twin sharing a bathroom. Excellent showers. Good sized kitchen with an open plan dining area and sitting room. Our hosts husband makes many things out of antlers. Some of his pieces are in the cottage. Loved them. Lots of information left in the cottage. Plenty parking. Bench table out the front and bench at side...real sun spot! Hylda came to show us the house and we were left wine and shortbread. Much appreciated. Excellent restaurant next door, The Hebredian Lodge and Tobermory Fish co 2 mins walk.

8th March 2017     Probst family

Stayed on Mull many times. This cottage is the best we have stayed in. Very comfortable and well equipped.A big thank you as well - booked on the 1400hr ferry but told by text the day before that the sailing was cancelled. We were breaking the journey from W.Yorks visiting family in Glasgow, rang CalMac and the only ferry available was at 0645hrs. So very little sleep and a 3am start from Glasgow. Rang at 1000hrs to ask when the cottage would be available (we had booked Crofters) and were told not yet but this was, free upgrade and ready straight away! Fantastic customer service. Thank you!
