I stayed for a week with Callum and Jackie at Oran-na-mara. The B&B is spotless, beautifully decorated with delightful furnishings. The bedroom I had was comfortable with a lovely shower room ensuite. The view from the front is over the bay; from the back over fields. Hen harriers are about every day; skylarks and wheatear abound in the garden, otters... More

Oran-Na-Mara’s secluded location overlooking Bunessan Bay creates a sense of refuge, but its biggest asset is the helpfulness of owners Jackie and Callum. Too many instances to list them all, but to give just two examples, Callum volunteered to drive us to and from our dinner at Ninth Wave in Fionnphort, refusing any payment for this, while Jackie made us...

My fiancé and I stayed with Callum and Jackie for a four night stay in late May. Having not previously been to Mull, we didn't factor in the slow going of the roads (particularly from Salen to Bunessan) so, after dinner at the Mediterranean restaurant in Salen, we set off a little later than expected to Bunessan. We completed the... More

I was made very welcome. Calum told me to put my feet up and make myself at home the first day I arrived. There were three rooms to share with other guests as well as my own private room with a key. Jackie loves to please and very professional in what she does. Whenever I return to Mull this is... More

I stayed with Jackie and Callum for two nights, 05 and 06 July, while on a business trip. This should have been submitted sooner, however, time has been of the essence recently. As a tour party chaffeur, I am always keen to try new accommodation. Oran-na-mara is exceptional, the house, the area and scenery, but most importantly of all the... More

I stayed with Jackie and Callum in May for a few nights. It was a solo trip and I had been a bit apprehensive about it, but I needn't have worried as they made me feel so welcome and at home. The room was more than enough for my needs with a lovely en-suite and beautiful views over the bay... More

Jackie & Callum stepped in at the last minute after my original hotel decided to bump me at short notice and I couldn't be more happy they did. A small B&B, but perfectly formed. Bunessan is more or less isolated at the end of the Ross & the house looks out over the bay with only a small shed that... More

Staying several nights with Jackie and Callum at their lovely B&B with dramatic water views was the highpoint of our trip. We would rate it at the top (if not AT the top) of all our stays at B&B's. Jackie & Callum operate an immaculate, efficient, and attractive B&B.......and they serve the best breakfast ever!!

It states on the business card of this B & B that this is Scottish B & B at its best, and I can heartily vouch for that! We spent five nights recently with Callum and Jackie at this B & B, and I was quite genuinely sad to leave as we had such a wonderful time. Mull itself is... More

We had a great day on Iona flanked by two nights in Oran Na Mara. The moment we arrived we received a warm and friendly welcome at the door from Jacqui with, as it turnd out, honest advice about local eateries. This is much more a boutique hotel than B&B and up to you how much you take. With sunny... More
