Removing yourself from the hustle and bustle of the mainland, and boarding a boat to get to your holiday destination, makes staying on a Scottish island that little bit more of an adventure. The excitement of disembarking and setting off on single track roads that wind their way along the coastline adds to the excitement and enchanting nature of this part of the world and makes it an ideal location, we think, for a romantic break.
The islands of the Hebrides all have something a little bit different to offer. Mull has a small population, little in the way of infrastructure, much in the way of wildlife and retains that olde world charm that somehow lends itself to a good place to retreat to and spend a week cosied up, soaking up the environment and re-charging your batteries. If you want somewhere with peace and quiet on tap, the Isle of Mull should be top of your list for a romantic break for two.
The landscape is varied and the geology is so unique that some of the structures here are found nowhere else in the world. There are stepped tablelands in the north, a rugged range of mountains in the central and southern parts of the island, and the outcrops of pink granite give the south western peninsula a flavour of its own.
At Isle of Mull Cottages, we give you a select range of properties, many of which have special features that are ideal for those looking for that elusive, luxurious ‘somewhere special to stay’. Want a balcony leading off your bedroom with views of a beautiful loch? Yes, we can tick that box. Looking for a picture postcard cottage for two, a stone’s throw from the sea? Check. Or how about an artist’s retreat with sauna and steam room in the master suite? Again, we have it covered.
So if you are looking to add romance to your holiday tick list, pick one of our beautiful holiday cottages, mix it in with the white sandy beaches, fantastic local produce to sample and amazing sunsets and wildlife, and you can’t go wrong with our recipe for a romantic break.
