Myself and my partner had a fabulous time in this beautiful, well kept cottage just yards from the shore and ferry ,with fabulous views over to Iona. Its easy walking distance to beaches in the area with lots to discover in Mull and Iona. Colin and Jackie are considerate owners who truly care about their tenants well being. It truly was magical, and hoping to return to this fantastic well equipped cottage again!!

“Stunning location, thoughtfully equipped house”
Reviewed August 23, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

This house is right on the beach, with constant wildlife to watch- we loved the baby bunnies in the garden- and spectacular sunsets. Nearby is the best restaurant on the Island, Ninth Wave, a pub Keel Row with great local produce, and the seafood shack on the Iona Ferry jetty, where they will cook fresh lobster and langoustine while you wait. The local shop is well enough equipped for you not to worry about food and wine while on holiday, they're very friendly and even let me order weekend papers to make sure I didn't miss them if we were our exploring.

The house is very well equipped, even with a scope to view the wildlife and having been in a very wet Uist a couple of years ago without washing machine and dryer, we especially appreciated this. There are beds to sleep 8, as there were only 2 of us we were very comfortable indeed, 8 might be a bit cosy, but there are 2 bathrooms and I guess it depends what you are used to !

Lots to see and do in the area, we saw otters on Iona, which also has the fascinating abbey, lovely flowers and amazing cream teas at the Argyle Hotel. We saw eagles over the hills and seals near the campsite as well as pretty much every seabird there can possible be.

A special place, where you really do not need to stray very far at all if you don't want to- but there's lots more to see and do on Mull too.

“Beautiful sunsets and lovely cottage”

Stayed here for a week at the start of June. Was greeted at the gate on arrival by a group of sheep and their lambs! Lovely cute cottage, and was pleasantly surprised as the photos don't do it justice...
Scenic walk from the front door to a gorgeous hidden bay over the hill to the left of the cottage.
Do research the beaches around the area as they are all crystal clear waters and very soft sands, and such a beauty to chill and have a picnic.
Would definitely come back if we hadn't already have exhausted the island. Would also recommend the cottage to anyone who wants to visit Iona, it is literally a 2 minute walk from the front door to the Iona ferry.
Lovely!

Just back from a weeks stay in the cottage. Absolutely lovely, so relaxing, stunning view. Plenty of places to visit, saw plenty of wildlife and seals basking at Carsaig. The Keel Row at the top of the road had great food at reasonable prices. The cottage had everything you could possibly need. Immaculate with lovely fresh bedding. The Owners have two folders full of information on places of interest, beaches, places to eat. They have even put in Phone numbers for emergencies i.e.. Dr's, dentists vets etc. They have done everything possible to make the stay memorable. Thank you Jackie and Colin.

We have just returned from a weeks stay in this wonderful little cottage On the beach. It boasts Amazing views of Iona across the waters and plenty of nearby walks. Weather was kind to us and we managed several walks with glorious scenery and wildlife in abundance. Owner Colin very helpful . The cottage was very homely, very warm, with local amenities at hand. Would most definitely recommend it and will be planning to return.
