Situated next to Aros castle in Mull, we stayed in Castle cottage. Quier, clean light and airy with all conveniences. Foreshore at Salen just a short walk away. Shop in village very good and busy. Drive to Iona is worth the effort with great scenery through Glenmore. Drive the North Mull circular road and you will be equally rewarded. If you want a quiet break and can handle the vagaries of the weather, this is a great destination to get away from it all

What a lovely apartment ,part of the owners house. We were met with a warm welcome by Maggie who is a lovely lady and very helpful.The apartment is very large with a spacious lounge,big kitchen diner,two huge double bedrooms a smaller single and two large bathrooms, All very tastefully decorated and fitted out with everything you need.Stunning view out of the lounge and bedroom windows.Only a two minute walk down through the trees to a quiet secluded bay and beach. A great find and ideally positioned between Craignure and Tobermory.

We spent one week at Aros Mains apartment in August with our two children aged 13 and 11 and fell absolutely in love with the place. It has a quirky charm, is spacious, furnished with taste and equipped to a high standard. Maggie is the most wonderful host. There is space outside for the children to roam, including a ruin of a 13th century castle and a secluded beach. The views from the apartment are spectacular. The weather during our stay was mixed, and so we appreciated the location which is quiet yet relatively close to Tobermory with its shops and cafés. We liked our stay so much that we would like to come back again.

My husband and I have just returned from a 4 nights stay on the Isle of Mull. We stayed at Castle Cottage (Aros Mains) during that time – a very clean, warm, comfortable and well-equipped cottage spread across 2 levels, plus we were able to park our car right at the cottage door. On the day of arrival we met Maggie’s daughter who was very friendly and helpful (we didn’t get to meet Maggie, the owner – she’s a busy lady!). Wifi/mobile signal was excellent. The cottage is situated slightly off the beaten track along a twisty country lane, but it’s only half a mile from the main road, so it didn’t cause a problem at all as it just made the area around the cottage very peaceful. Aros Mains is in an ideal central position between Craignure and Tobermory, and a good base to get around the whole island. There are many single track roads in the area, but there are many passing places too, so never a big issue. We were also lucky in that the weather for 90% of the time was glorious so we got to see Mull at it’s best – stunning scenery. We will highly recommend this accommodation to our friends and family.

Just back from a weeks stay at the apartment which is close to cottages. The apartment sleeps 8 and is perfect for larger parties, maybe 2 families/groups holidaying together? 2 large bathroom/shower room. It is the best part of Mull to stay due to it's location you are central to explore all of the island. Maggie is a wonderful host, she (and her family)are super friendly and helpful. The apartment is furnished to a high quality, lovely to return from a busy day to white fluffy towels, large hot shower, comfortable beds with fresh white bedding and pure wool throws. The attention to detail really makes it feel like home rather than 'self catering' everything is done to a very high standard. The views from windows are breathtaking.... talking picture postcard, it's so silent and peaceful so a perfect sleep. Aros castle ruins is 'in the garden' along with a gate that takes you directly to a secluded/private bay. Maggie has chickens which are comical to watch and produce the tastiest eggs. Again due to it's location you are central for everything yet away from the visiting crowds/tour buses etc. Great friendly reasonably sized and priced Spar close by, along with Tobermory fish shop (highly recommended) and places to eat. We loved Maggies place so much we were so sad to leave so booked for next year before we left.
