A real home from home in the most stunning location. One of the best holiday cottages I have stayed in, warm and cosy over a wintery week by the fire, just what we wanted. A few lovely day trips out to explore - with stags, seals, eagles and the like all on our doorstep. We even got to see the Aurora twice! We will definitely be returning to Mull and what a great asset it is having the Dervaig shop and bakery only minutes away! Good local restaurants apparently too - but closed from Nov 1st... maybe next time!

Fabulous week. Wonderful cottage and very comfortable with everything you need, including good wifi. Lovely furnishings and decorations. We saw minke whales offshore 15 min walk from the cottage and had our own resident golden eagle visiting most days. Great walks on Ulva, but Thresnish Headland walk beats them all.

Just returned from a great Easter break at this lovely cottage. Perfectly located on the north west of the island, there are great places to explore whatever the weather. We particularly enjoyed the sunsets and the view of the stars at night... breathtaking. The cottage was brilliant and provided everything we could’ve needed, and we even got a friendly ‘hello’ from the sheep each morning!! Highly recommended.

Can’t rate this cottage/house highly enough. Whilst there were only 2 of us, the cottage would comfortably cater for 6 adults with 3 large bedrooms and ample space in both the living and dining room areas. We had sub zero temperatures but the combination of the heating and the wood burner meant that the cottage was cosy throughout. The kitchen had everything you would need for a self catering stay and the quality of the furnishings was excellent throughout. The owners have clearly put a lot of thought into the overall style and finish which makes it feel like a home as opposed to a rental property. Location wise you have great walks direct from the property and are only a 10 minute drive from Calgary Bay which is a must see. Tobermory is circa 9 miles, and the pub in Dervaig is just 3 miles distant. In terms of wildlife then lost for words. We saw White Tailed Sea Eagles every day that we were there, within walking distance of the property, including 1 individual which casually flew directly over the cottage. Red deer abound and we were fortunate to see otters in Calgary Bay. Having been to Mull before 2 of the best walks we’ve undertaken have to be Calgary Bay and Treshnish Point both within easy striking distance of the cottage. If you’re a night bird then there is almost zero light pollution due to the location of the property, amazing if you’re fortunate enough to have a clear sky. Suffice to say we will be back.....

Had a superb stay. The house was perfectly placed for exploring the north of the island and also not far to Ulva Ferry to catch boat trips out. A good back porch area with washing facilities is ideal if you are a walker and come back a bit damp and muddy.

Cnoc Deaghuinn is a delightful cottage and thoroughly recommended. Warm and welcoming with charming décor and wildlife on the doorstep. Don't be put off by its position in the north-west. Breath-taking coastline and hidden, sandy coves within walking distance and a good choice of roads from Dervaig, all with stunning scenery, to carry you around the island. We had a wonderful week.

This is the third time we've been to Mull and we've stayed in different places every time. Croc Deaghuinn did not disappoint - it is a wonderful house and had everything we needed. It is in a great location with Croig, Calgary Bay and Dervaig all close to the house. We had a great meal at Am Birlinn restaurant which we just walked to down the track. Our 2 year old loved the house and garden and had us up the hill behind the house most days. The views up there are amazing. You can see Ardnamuchan Light and beyond that are Muck, Rum and Skye. We had amazing weather the week we there, which always helps but Mull is a great place no matter what the weather is doing.

A sunny and comfortable holiday in this lovely cottage. We have particularly enjoyed the beaches at Calgary Bay and Port Na Ba, the local walking and cycling, the sunsets, and views from behind the cottage and eating at Am Birlinn restaurant - high;y recommended.
