Argyll Arms in Bunessan is one of several eateries in the Bunessan/Fionnphort area. The restaurant is open all year which is great out of season. Food tends to be of the 'pub-grub' variety mostly, but is of reasonable quality and great quantity. You will not...More

Good choice of beers and a fair menu. Fish and chips was good but the portions a bit small and the presentation "pub-like". Friendly staff. Not particularly cosy of comfortable, this place needs a makeover.

We stopped here travelling back from a day trip to Iona. We were all hungry. From the exterior we weren't expecting much but we had a warm welcome and a hearty meal. Would recommend.

Well-placed on the west coast of Mull for a visit to Iona, sea- eagle-watching and access to the Cammas centre, The Argyll Arms is a convenient and comfortable stop-over.

We stayed here on the way to and from Iona and it was relaxing and welcoming. The owner is very flexible about booking arrangements. We had a room which was really two adjoining rooms - great luxury. Sitting outside the hotel with a pre-dinner drink,...More

Many things shut down in the winter months on Mull. There is very little tourism during this time and the weather is hard. Best to check with places that you are interested in to found out what is open. There is a small... More
