“Avoid this B&B...”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

We had five different B&B hosts on our trip to Scotland, all we wonderful except for Diane who came over as pretty frosty from first meeting.

On arrival, she chose to highlight the 10 rules that we were to follow - no one else had such as list. For example, we could use the breakfast area to sit in "only when it was not being used for other meals" (...there is only one room for hire and Diane and Andy ate in their kitchen so why bother with the rule?) She then informed us that breakfast would be at 8am, "because we have our own things we want to do in the day" - we were offered no choice in the matter. Not a good start and on the first night we even considered terminating the stay...

At another time she referred to her customers as her "pesky guests" who got in the way of her own travelling. It seemed that running the B&B was a chore that she'd rather not have. Our other B&B owners clearly enjoyed meeting people and having a chat and finding out about them. Clearly, not Diane.

On departure, Diane pointedly asked Andy to check the total on the cheque - which we'd written from their own invoice left on the breakfast table. The Austalians call this type of behaviour "very ordinary"....If I had a choice, I would avoid this B&B.

Lovely warm, clean, well-equipped bedroom, with delicious home-baked cookies. Exceptional breakfast in the sun lounge, with special diets catered for at very short notice. Extremely helpful and informative hosts in Diane and Andy. Cycle friendly and a good location. Only sorry we couldn't stay longer!

During our stay on Mull, we stayed at Wild Cottage, just outside of Craignure. We were very glad that we stayed here as it was such as central location. It's less than 10 minutes from the Craignure ferry, where there are also a few gas stations, a small market, the visitor/tourist office, and an inn restaurant. In addition, it's near the castles and yet is in a location where you can head to Fionnaphort or Tobermory any day without feeling far from anything.

The accomodations themselves were nice and everything was well kept. The room we stayed in (Eagle) was a little bit small, but we weren't there much. The colors and decor are soothing and natural. They had snacks and tea in each room along with a TV/DVD combination with an extensive library to choose from if you like. Diana and Andrew were very friendly and welcoming and had many suggestions for things to do if you like. Andrew knows his birds and they both do a great, fresh breakfast! We loved eating in the sun porch each morning.

If you're on Mull, this is a great place to stay. You can drive around the island, head to any location within an hour's drive or a bit more.

  • Liked — Natual decor, location, and breakfasts!
  • Disliked — If I had to choose, it would be the midges that got in the window - not their fault!
