David and Jo run an excellent hotel. Jo's cooking was the highlight of our two weeks rambling about Scotland staying in 4 and 5 star hotels. Her breakfast was the absolute best of our trip. By all means, splurge and have dinner one evening. The service and meal was very, very good. Great cocktails. David is a lot of fun... More

If I had any criticism at all, it would be that the portion of my utterly mouth watering smoked haddock risotto starter was far too big. Loved David's bone dry humour and bonhomie. Jo is the chef and boy can she cook, did I say? Our room was at the front on the ground floor, cosy, comfie, clean, with a... More

We enjoyed a relaxing two night stay at the Highland Cottage. The owners Jo and David were so friendly and the rooms we very clean. The breakfast was delicious and while we didn't eat here, the menu looked wonderful. Jo and David also gave us directions and recommendations for the remainder of our stay in Scotland. Great locale in beautiful... More

We stopped off for 1 night en route to Iona. We felt very welcome when we arrived. The room was very well equipped. I reckon that the owners (who are great hosts and very knowledgable about the area) must have stayed in each room as the attention to detail was outstanding. A particularly impressive feature for someone with long hair... More

We stayed at Highland Cottage as part of a longer visit to Scotland. As soon as Jo opened the door to welcome us, we felt at home. We had a lovely cup of tea and home made shortbread biscuits when we had seen our room which was delightful, with an enormous bed. We went out later on and got drenched... More

We had three nights in Tobermory at the Highland Cottage. We ate in the first night. Jo is a great cook! We don't accept bland, and the food certainly wasn't. Very good value at £39.50 for three courses plus hors d'oeuvres and veloute. Our room was a little small (hence the rating) but clean and comfortable. Our host Dave was... More

We received a warm welcome in this commodious small hotel in Tobermory ideally suited to the discerning motorist . The seafood dinner was exceptionally good and nicely presented. Breakfast choices were varied.Traditional Scottish breakfast on 2 occasions was excellent and the service was both personal and timely.

My third choice on Mull , the others not being free, this B&B in a wide street up from the harbour has easy street parking, and is a short if steep walk down to the waterfront. We booked the 2 best water-view rooms, Ulva and Staffa. Our room had a 4 poster bed, but was so crammed with other furniture... More

Outstanding service, food and accommodation combine to make this a memorable experience to which we shall return. The location is stunning and our room superbly placed for easterly views over the bay.Magic sunrises! Jo and Dave Currie are the perfect hosts!

We have travelled far and wide, stayed in the best and the worst and come to the Isle of Mull every year. This is without doubt the best restaurant/accommodation offering on the island. Two professionals at the top of their game cooking and front of house. Mull has few choices for eating out and none, apart from Highland Cottage, matches... More
