We were delighted with the accommodation, large garden, right on the beach. Five minutes walk to the ferry, 10mins to Iona, which was a good visit. On our doorstep there was a nice pub, which welcomed dogs. They also did teas and coffee, sit in or takeaway meals. There was a place sold fresh crab, lobster, and fish and chips. There was a boat trip to Staffa to see Fingals cave, and the wild life. Great holiday. Thank you so much Mr & Mrs Kirkwood.
This was a very good location for our family. The dogs loved it. We did. We were a stones throw from the fishing hut for everything fishy. And a stones throw from the pub. Another goody. We treated our potential son in law and daughter to a meal at ninth wave around the back of the house. Huge reviews from them on their visit there. Owners friendly, ensuring we had all our needs and letting us know the secret beaches. And organised a new microwave. I would have given the place five stars if there had been a dishwasher. A must really when you have five people.
We had an excellent stay for a week in this beautiful cottage. We absolutely loved the view and also the cottage itself. We want to swap it for our own house! It's a little paradise on earth and the shop and pub are a real plus to that. The house is warm, clean and cosy, with a very nice bathroom with excellent shower. We loved our stay in the cottage, in Fionnphort and on Mull and will never forget the view!
Fabulous place even in November! Loved watching the ferry running across to Iona, Iona was the land of rainbows, saw dolphins crossing the bay. Plenty of lovely walks and secluded beaches. Long drive down to Fionnphort from Craignure on single track road!
This accommodation not only offers everything you need to be fully functional but also has such charm and comfort. Its colors and decor make it truly a "Beach Cottage". When you walked out the door of the cottage, the front yard spilled right down onto a beautiful beach, and to the right there were rocks and hills to climb on and explore with beautiful views of the ocean and town of Fionnphort from the top. Because of its location we were able to access the island of Iona as frequently as we wished during our weeklong stay. The ferry stop was just down the street. Although we prepared most of our meals with food from the well stocked Ferry Shop just up the road, we were also able to enjoy wonderful meals from the nearby restaurants - all within walking distance also. We enjoyed seeing sheep and highland cows wander about, and at night beautiful sunsets and night skies full of stars right out our front windows. We traveled without a car and found that one was not needed with this cottage. The bus from Craignure dropped us within steps of the cottage and once we were here there were so many places and beaches to explore right here on foot, we could have stayed on another week or two and still never tired of this lovely place. I would definitely say here again if given the opportunity and would highly recommend this cottage to anyone wanting to visit this area of Scotland.

Great location, great cottage.every thing one needs for a comfortable stay.Thought and effort
has gone into making the visitors feel welcome,
I don’t usually write reviews but wanted to make an exception for our stay at Tigh-Na-Failte. It’s the second time that we’ve stayed at the cottage (families with kids) and it was every bit as lovely as we remembered it from several years before. So beautiful and peaceful – the coming and going of the Iona ferry marks time through the day, the view across to Iona and the abbey is ever changing, as are the colours of the water in the Sound. The local beaches must be among the most beautiful in the world. Kilvickeon and Market Bay are two favourites - but all the beaches on the Ross (Uisken, Ardanlish, Knockvolagen) are stunningly beautiful. There’s a kayak which you can use to paddle around the coastline – if you go towards Kintra bay you will usually find seals which will swim up close to the kayak as well as lots of seabirds. We saw bottlenose dolphins in the Sound and hundreds of common dolphins (as well as basking sharks and much else) on one of the boat trips that you can take from the island. The waters are clear and you can see to the bottom of deep water and so (although we did not have them) wet suits and snorkels would be worth bringing along. The beach outside the cottage is interesting for children to play – rocks, pools, streams, climbing, incredible size and varieties of seaweed. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and easy to live in and everything works well. You can get everything you need from the local store and there’s a pub that does decent food and takeaways and the kippers from the seafood bar on the ferry pier make a cheap and tasty breakfast! Both times we’ve stayed at the cottage there’s been a breeze most of the time and so little trouble with midges. So, no reservations: a wonderful place for a holiday.
