“Outstanding.”
Reviewed July 29, 2015 for a stay in July 2015

Back Brae Lodge is set off Main Street in Tobermory. It is peaceful but still close to amenities including shops, bank, restaurants and cafe. Although, there is no designated parking, we had no problem parking on the street during the week of our stay in July.

We found the accommodation itself clean, comfortable and exactly as described. There are DVDs, books and board games for rainy days and a wealth of helpful information on local walks and trips to Iona, and Staffa. There is a charming and secluded decking area which is perfect for enjoying a glass of wine.

On arrival we received two small sample bottles of whisky which of course made us want to visit the Tobermory Distillery. A lovely touch.

Would highly recommend staying at Back Brae Lodge for couples or a young family of three or four.

“Great accomodation in perfect location with really helpful owner”
Reviewed July 4, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We stayed in Back Brae Lodge for just short of a week. We arrived a day later than planned because of the Calmac ferry strike. The owner, Kenny, very helpfully emailed and warned us about the imminent strike, which wasn't covered in the English media at all until it was actually happening. That meant we could sort out alternative ferry times and overnight accomodation in Oban ahead of the rush/ allocation by Calmac. He was very accessible throughout, responding promptly to emails. We loved the space in the apartment, especially downstairs where there is lots of space for getting in and out of walking boots and gear and to hang and dry stuff as well as a tumble drier. The apartment is really set up for a couple, as the web site suggests. It is literally round the corner from a great pub, The Mishnish, and handy for lots of great eating places including Cafe Fish. We also appreciated the wifi and satellite channels on the TV. Parking is not on site but was never a problem.

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed June 27, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Just returned from a week here and cannot praise the accommodation highly enough. Friendly, helpful owner made the booking process easy and was kind enough to return the clothing I stupidly left behind.

The property is in a prime spot, just off the harbour in one of Scotland's most well recognised locations. We had no trouble parking and had shops, restaurants and a bank within a minute of the door. Despite that, the house was very quiet and relaxing. The living space upstairs us bright and spacious with a very well equipped kitchen area, comfy seating and TV and WiFi.
Downstairs is a large bedroom and bathroom and a really useful large hallway for outdoor gear. Everything was absolutely spotless and the malt whiskers and biscuits were a nice welcoming touch.
Tobermory us a great place to stay with lots to do and masses of activities within easy reach in other parts of Mull. I would not hesitate to stay at Back Brae Lodge again and thouroughly recommend it.

“Great holiday, super accomadation, didnt want to leave!”
Reviewed June 15, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Arrived tired so a small drop of whisky was very welcome, great accomadation with all we needed, cosy and comfy with all mod cons. We parked on main Street and once it was quiet in the evening managed to park just yards away for the whole week. So much to see and do we didnt get to everything. Great meal at Cafe Fish, 3 times at the chip van, both Chinese, Hebridean lodge very good. Hired electric bikes, did Discover Mull Tour, Distillery tour, went to Glengorm Castle, aros park is alovely walk, plus lots more. If you want to do nothing you have all you want in Tobermory or if like us you like to get out and about as well its perfect. Back Brae Lodge was a perfect base, evrything was nearby and trly a home from home.

“Holiday on Mull”
Reviewed May 16, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

The apartment was perfect. It had everything you could want.There were very helpful instructions and a welcome pack with some local whiskey miniatures on our arrival.Tobermory is the main town on the island and there are cafes,pubs and restaurants which are all within walking distance.There are maps and guide books in the apartment with lots of helpful suggestions about where to go and things to see.Allow plenty of time as roads are narrow you don't want to rush.Everything was excellent and would recommend Back Brae for a relaxing break with everything you could want.

“Feels like you are at home”
Reviewed April 8, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

Backbrae lodge was perfect for us and exactly what we were looking for. It was clean, had everything we needed for our stay there. We felt as if everything had been taken care of as the owners have obviously listened to their guests and made sure they provide absolutely everything. Plenty of hot water after returning from long walks. Very short walking distance to all shops and restaurants. It was nice and warm and cosy, we had lots of fun with the Trivial Pursuit games in the evening. If you have the chance to book this accommodation, take it - you won't be disappointed.

Thanks again for a wonderful stay,

hopefully we'll return soon.

“Excellent cosy cottage”
Reviewed March 29, 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed at Back Brae Lodge for 5 days - it's a fantastic cosy cottage in Tobermory. Everything you need is in the cottage, it was lovely and warm, a comfortable bed, plenty of hot water. The cottage was very clean and we could not fault it at all. Tobermory is so pretty, the people were so friendly. Stunning scenery on the Isle of Mull. An excellent place for a holiday.
