Old Ferry House is full of character and our family party of 9, aged from 5- 70 years, loved our time here. The property offers plenty of room to spread out, although the large kitchen with its aga, seating area and large table tended to be the hub for everyone.
It is also a great place for hide and seek and treasure hunts when the weather keeps you in and you have children to entertain!
Outside there is plenty to explore and wildlife galore. There were otters in the bay, sea eagles above and rutting deer in the nearby fields.
A big thank you to Ian and Deborah ,the caretakers, for making us feel so welcome.
A magical holiday on Mull.

We've been coming to Mull for over 20 years but never stayed on this part of the island before and we loved it! The house is by far the nicest we've stayed in - very comfortable, full of character and quirks and perfect for our family reunion of 10 (three generations) and two dogs. The location is stunning - plenty to see and do right on the doorstep. Very happy time was had by all would definitely recommend.

This was our first stay in the ferry house but our fourth to grass point , this time brought family and friends and dogs with us, had some wonderful views of the otter and seals, saw less of the Eagles this time - usually daily views but I understand they had been disturbed earlier in the breeding season . Just a magical place to stay and a comfortable house for a group with space to spare. Definitely will stay there again.

First off, I'll start with the positives, the house itself is in the most beautiful spot - the scenery is spectacular and the little bay in front of the house is teeming with wildlife (saw otters twice, and seals, as well as a plethora of birds). The house itself is huge, and our 3 kids had a great time exploring and playing. It's also very well stocked with books and board games -no need for the usual electronic devices which were instantly forgotten about.
Unfortunately the house is not in the best of conditions. The bathroom facilities are in serious need of overhauling and damp permeates the whole property. It has the feel of neglect about it, so I consider it not to be worth the considerable sum that the property costs. Also, it's not exactly suitable for someone over 6 feet tall. Yes, there are signs telling you to duck, but having to duck through every door does lead to the occasional accident!

Editor's Note: Old Ferry House has undergone major renovation in 2018 with major improvements in the all areas of the accommodation including new bathrooms
We stayed at the Old Ferry House for 2 weeks in August 2014. The location is simply stunning, and a great place to watch wildlife. The visitor book is full of reports of seeing otters and eagles from the house - we saw an otter from the house, and eagles on the 3 mile track back up to the main road, but saw more eagles elsewhere on Mull (in particular, the road towards Iona).
The house itself is unusual, and full of character. It's an big old house with rather idiosyncratic plumbing, but don't let that put you off. Even when the weather's bad, you can sit in the living room watching the CalMac ferries sail past Lismore Lighthouse, and the seabirds battling against the wind.

We stayed at the old ferry house at the end of May and had a week of great weather. The house is in a fantastic location a few miles down a track road. We saw otters from the window and off the rocks. We kayaked with the seals in the bay every evening and the kids loved the private beach. The house is large with lots of character and easily accommodated two families. I would recommend it.
