We stayed here for 3 nights in late May. The best thing about this B&B is the superb location in Tobermory, and wonderful view from the bedroom over the harbour. We would stay here again for this reason. It is right on the harbour side with plenty of choice of places to eat and easy parking. We found our en-suit... More

I had a one night stay in Tobermory as part of a 3 day visit to Mull. Plenty to do in Tobermory; visit Aros Park and pier, walk along harbour front, various paths and steps to upper level of village, local craft shops to browse and the distillery shop. I was in room 1, a comfortable large single. The room... More

We stayed for 3 nights and were well looked after by Linda. Tobermory is a great Base for exploring the island. Linda cooked up hearty and tasty breakfasts. We were in room 4. The harbour view was beautiful. The room is clean, and the bed really comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to stay with Linda again.

Could not fault this charming Guest House and we had a warm welcome from Linda whose hubby Rob is a great chef! Our room overlooked the pretty bay in a most tranquil setting. Make sure you book this accommodation if you wish to explore the Isle of Mull!

We were pleased to find a room at Carnaburg, even though were only able to book Room 5 which is at the back (ie no sea view). The accommodation was very nice, clean and very well run with good breakfasts. The location is ideal for walking to various restaurants and bars and although I thought parking would therefore be difficult,... More

Our first first visit to Tobermory and we stuck gold by booking into the Carnaburg Guest House. The location is perfect a very short walk to a selection of restaurants and local attractions (boat trips, distillery tour etc). The owners made us very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble.
