We stayed in Cottage 3 for a week before Easter, and although the weather was chilly and wet for most of the week, it was great to come back to the cosiness of this, bright and comfortable cottage. The setting was lovely and a great location for exploring this beautiful island. There was everything we needed and even 2 toilets!... More

We stayed at Cottage no. 3 at Aros Mains Steadings for a week at the beginning of October. This was our second visit and I'm booking for next year now. Very comfortable, with a great view of the ruined castle from the living accommodation which was upstairs to get the best of the views. Maggie was great - and so... More

We (my wife, her sister and me) stayed in Cottage 2 at Aros Mains in late May 2014. The cottage is down a rough track off the main road between Salen and Tobermory and is easy to reach and access. The location is convenient for all of north and central Mull and is about an hour from the ferry to... More

Excellent location and lovely friendly hosts. Cottage very well equipped and warm, important when visiting in Jan.! Very close to shore where we saw the otter. Our dog loved the large selection of walks from outside the cottage. Make sure you visit Calgary Bay and Iona. The only drawback is that most of Mull is closed October to March, but... More

What a delight this place is. We stayed in cottage 3, which has the living area upstairs, with stunning views over castle and across the bay. It has 2 bedrooms (one large double, and smaller twin), and 2 bathrooms. Living area spacious, clean, tv, washing machine, dishwasher, well, everything you can think of really, even an ipod and dock full... More

We have just spent a week in Cottage 3 at Aros Mains. The property was a delight - warm & welcoming with a great view of the castle and bay. It had everything we could possibly need and if not we only had to ask! (We didn't need to!) It was a great 'upside down' appartment - the living area... More

We stayed here in cottage 3 - perfect choice with stunning views (the lounge is on the first floor) of the loch (just 5 mins stroll from our cottage to the beach) Aros Castle (in the garden) and the mountains beyond. You couldn't ask for a more scenic view. We clocked up 360 miles during the week and enjoyed all... More

We took over the apartment for a week in April, for a family group of 6 (with 1 child). We were welcomed on arrival by Maggie, who also made us some amazing scones and left us a bottle of wine! The views from the apartment are incredible - we saw seals from the window and a sea eagle flew over... More

We stayed in the apartment and what a comfortable, clean, warm place it is. Far too big for just the two of us and the dog (will sleep up to 7) but extremely well equipped and managed by a wonderfully, welcoming, friendly owner. The views out over the Castle and the estuary are fabulous. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and... More

This was one of the best locations I have stayed in made all the better by being managed by one of the nicest people you will meet, Maggie made us feel so welcome that it was a sad day when we had to leave. We stayed in the apartment that is very big - too big for us and we... More
