Superb, comfortable, dog-friendly cottage in a village with good walks, friendly bar, well stocked shop and (expensive) bakery. The cottage has an enclosed garden - perfect for dogs. It's just 5 miles to Calgary Bay which is a perfect beach for a dog. Felt very welcome when we found wine and biscuits in the kitchen. Best cottage I've ever stayed in anywhere.

We've visited Scotland many times over the year, particularly the islands and more remote parts, but this was our first trip to Mull. We fell in love. What a beautiful island! The autumn colours never failed to disappoint, the wildlife, the coastline the mountains.
The cottage is wonderfully well equipped, the large lounge, (TV and interweb for the kids!), huge kitchen and the 2 bathrooms were spot on. The garage was great for storing the bikes, there was a good sized porch/utility room which is ideal for wellies etc. Loads of cupboards. Smashing views & friendly local shop too!!

Lovely stay at Brackens. Cottage so comfortable and well equipped with lots of really thoughtful personal touches to make our stay special. Beautiful location within the village of Dervaig with stunning views. Loved the wildlife which visited the garden and eagles which flew over on a regular basis! Is also a fantastic spot for star gazing due to the dark skies, excellent views of the Milky Way. A 5 star recommendation from the whole family.

Lovely dog friendly cottage in a fantastic location. So lovely just to look out of the windows at the views, and the wildlife, especially the birds visiting the garden and those flying over (including the occasional sea eagle we think). The village is a very short walk down the hill and has a well stocked shop and pub which serves food. We had a great week despite mixed weather and would love to return.

Excellent stay for us, such a beautiful landscape. The cottage is immaculate and everything is to hand. Ian was extremely helpful with his TV knowledge too.

Brackens was so perfect - it had everything, even baking equipment so the kids could bake a cake on a rainy day. All 3 generations loved it, with the kids romping in the garden, Grandma enjoying the birds on the feeder and us nipping off to the pub for a pint. As for wildlife - what can we say?! Five sightings of white tailed eagles out of the window and a sparrow hawk on the gate. Highest recommendations!!
