We spent a weekend here in order to get to the Ninth Wave restaurant. Weather fabulous so we got to Staffa, Iona and explored the Ross of Mull. The cottage sleeps four, and it larger than it looks on the photographs. Comfortable and perfect for relaxing after a day out. Lots of hot water! Kitchen well equipped....would have loved to...

We had recently read "Four Ducks on a Pond" which was written by the novelist Annabel Carothers from the perspective of her cat Nicholas. It describes life on the Isle of Mull during one year in the early 1950s. It was a charming book about the family who lived in Achaban House. After a little research on the internet, we... More

My initial impression was of quite an austere house—it’s an old manse—but it’s rather comfortable, and charming. Gillian Morley was welcoming, hospitable and accommodating. (We were initially the only guests, and she offered us our choice of room.) We particularly welcomed the fire being set for us in the lounge at the end of a particularly dreich day. Lovely breakfasts... More

Just booked another stay at this house. So very glad Gill had space for us, because I wouldn't want to go to Mull and stay anywhere else. House is lovely, breakfast is great.

Stayed one night en route to visit cousin on Iona. Gillian Morley was exremely hospitable and welcoming with the right balance between being helpful and unobtrusive. The location is ideal for the ferry to Iona and also to the facilities at Fionnphort. The house itself is full of history and character with a nice feel to it. I read a... More

This is probably a good place to stay if you are a couple without dogs or kids, or perhaps a family with children old enough to be neat and tidy. Owners are VERY house-proud. Not a bad thing on the face of it - our bedroom was absolutely spotless and immaculate, and had everything needed for a short break (apart... More

The owners here seemed to have an unhappy demeanour which contributed to our low score on service. If you like the smell of wet dog permeating the premises then this is the place for you. The rooms are basic with no hairdriers or tv although they do have tea making facilites. The breakfasts were decent. We would return to this... More

This is a very nice place to stay and Gill and Barry Morley are great hosts. Stayed here for 3 very enjoyable nights. The house is in a lovely quiet spot overlooking Loch Pottie and only a 10 minute walk from Fionnphort. The room was spacious and clean with a nice view over the countryside, and I even woke to...

I would highly recommend Achaban House to those interested in visiting the monastic community of Iona, or just enjoying the remote beauty of the Isle of Mull. Gill and Barry were excellent hosts and certainly made us feel welcome. Although the house is a bit outside of Fionnphort, Gill came in and picked us up and we were able to... More
