“Friendship and welcome on Mull”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2011

Linda and Tim were so welcoming and friendly to my mum and myself, and nothing was too much trouble, from phoning the Ferry Shop to ensure a newspaper was saved for Mum on our return from Iona one day, to calling the Calmac office and rearranging the time of our ferry on our last day. Despite REALLY wild weather we had a most enjoyable and comfortable stay and felt the service was very friendly and personal. The Mull eagles may have been grounded but instead a mountain hare and a sparrowhawk visited the garden in the storms, just for our entertainment (or had grass and potential prey anything to do with it?). A lovely area too, with far more to see than we could fit in...we'll just have to go back soon!

We had a wonderful 3 days on Mull in August largley down to our hosts Tim and Linda, not so much the weather. This traditional B&B is down a quiet road a short distance from Fionnaphort with your own separate lounge and breakfast taken in a large kitchen while watching the birds and hares. Linda helped us plan our few days and then booked the trips and the resturaunts for us - a real treat! Their website is one of the best I've used, lots of useful information. If you enjoy nature we would recommend a wildlife tour, saw red deer, otters,eagles and so much more - brilliant. We would go back tomorrow given the chance.

Isle of Mull :) It costs staying several days there.
Maolbhuidhe B&B - bed and breakfast with the name I still cannot pronounce correctly :) but it's Number_ONE bed and breakfast in my rating of Scotland B&B during our 2-weeks trip in may 2011. First of all - the owners - Linda and Tim are very helpful. Linda assisted us in booking trips to near islands, and helped us to book ferry in advance.. it was really pleasure to talk about local life...
As to rooms - wow!
I would like to thanks once again for very warm stayin there.

Room Tip: A lot of space, very clean, very traditional :) I really like it!

The room was comfortable with a nice view. A 20 minute walk from Fionnphort and the ferry to Iona. The proprietors are very friendly and helpful and the breakfast is tasty. It's a real taste of Mull.

It's a long journey from Oban to get to this B&B (allow at least an hour and a half from the ferry, as it's single track all the way).but it's well worth the effort .The B&B is set quite far back from the road so you need to look out for the sign, but it's quiet and in a beautiful position. We had a lovely big room and our own little sitting room which was a great luxury, and a delicious, freshly cooked breakfast. We were only using it as a staging post to visit Iona, as it's only 10 minutes from the ferry, but it would be worth staying longer to explore the area.

Certainly a B&B I would recommend to friends.
Quiet surroundings and lots of wildlife (especially birds!) around.
Great Scottish breakfast and many good suggestions for visits.
Very helpful too.
Definitely a great place to visit Mull, Iona and Staffa from.
