My only regret is not posting this review sooner. Despite visiting last August, the memory of our one night stay is as vivid and fresh as yesterday. Our hosts were wonderful and accommodated us from the second we arrived until we departed. Although we were the only guests, we somehow felt we were receiving special treatment in a setting that...

Not necessarily the easiest to find but good directions from the personable hosts (Richard and Maggie) got us there. Private facilities, lounge available for guest coffee and biscuits on arrival and a big open fire, quiet and peaceful in a magnificent landscape - what could be better. One of the best breakfasts personally served by Richard. Bedroom decor bit feminine... More

A lovely brew to welcome us, a unique house. Richard and Maggie were very friendly and helpful hosts. The decor may not be to everyone's taste but it had its own style and fitted the place. A very quiet and remote area accessible by single track lanes through awesome scenery. The dinner was one of the highlights of our holiday... More

We stayed in the self catering house for 4 nights, and found it an idyllic base to explore Mull. Richard and Maggie were very accommodating and helpful with local knowledge. The peace and tranquility is unrivalled. Just whilst out walking close by on an evening we saw otters, seals, red deer and a variety of eagles. The accommodation itself was... More

What a lovely find for four nights/days in Mull. Richard and Maggie are actually sharing their home and all their private possessions with you when you stay here. Home from home plus more. Accommodation is on the ground floor with either Ensuite or private bathrooms. A lovely layout and well furnished. Our bed was a "tester" with lovely brass fittings.... More

Stayed for 2 nights in April - hosts were very kind, attentive - happy to leave you alone . Fireplace in the living room was a real treat. Bed was comfortable and we slept well. Meals are great and large in size- eating in the dining room with the fancy setting was lovely. Quiet and breathtaking setting. Breakfast was great... More

My partner and I spent two nights here following a busy few days at the Tobermory Music Festival. It was an absolute delight, with generous and attentive hosts in a truly extraordinary B and B. Both the house and its location are beautiful, the room and breakfast and Richard and Maggie's attention to our every need was exceptional. I would... More

During our visits to England and Scotland we often make use of B&B’s. On most occasions these overnights were nice; however our stay at the Barrachandroman (Isle of Mull, April 2014) proved to be more than nice and belong to our top five of best B&B’s. Although Barrachandroman is near to the remote yet beautiful Lochbuie it is easy enough... More

It was February in Mull and I had mountain biked to this venue and the arrival of a filthy wet biker can phase some B&B owners. Not so Richard and Maggie. My clothes were dried, Saturday and Sunday. The position of their house is superb at the end of a Loch famed for isolation, otters and eagles. The house made... More

Barrachandroman is in a relatively isolated setting, but easily reached from the Craignure ferry (less than 30 minutes) and also from Iona/Fionnphort (less than one hour). The host and hostess were very friendly and helpful with advice. Rooms were very comfortable and well-appointed. The lounge and dining rooms were beautifully furnished. Breakfast was substantial and delicious. We had dinner there... More
