Almost not wanting to review - to keep this cottage a secret!
After a lengthy trip from the south east of England it was such a delightful place to arrive at.
Everything has been considered and included, and all at a stylishly high standard. Had quite a busy week visiting all corners of Mull and beyond, but we were not in a hurry to leave in the mornings and very happy to return each evening.

Definitely a lovely cottage in a peaceful location and great for chilling out. Kitchen extremely well equipped and wet room shower was fabulous. This was our first visit to Mull and we can't wait to return. Would definitely book Tontine again.

Absolutely loved everything about this house. The wood burner was a fabulous focal point & we were even lucky enough to be able to sit outside on a couple of evenings with a glass or 3 whilst the dogs enjoyed chasing each other around the massive garden.Our week on the Ross of Mull was a total stress buster. Can't wait to visit again

Definitely the best holiday home we have ever stayed in, The Tontine is comfortable, beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. It is in a lovely peaceful setting with a fabulous garden. Perfectly situated for exploring the Ross of Mull, we had beautiful weather on the days we visited Staffa and Iona and when it did rain, Mull's scenery was still stunning. We had a great week, thank you.

Pauline and Gareth's cottage is really lovely. It is beautifully decorated and unbelievably well-equipped (the only the thing we could think of that was missing was a tea cosy and I understand they have now bought one!).
Although we were lucky with the weather, it was still quite chilly. The cottage was really cosy with a mixture of under-floor heating, storage heaters and a fantastic wood-burning stove. Cold was not a problem in the cottage.
With regard to location, the cottage is perfectly situated to explore the Ross of Mull and has lovely views out to sea.
Overall, we would not hesitate to recommend it.

Gareth and Pauline have created a wonderful holiday home in Mull and we were luck to be their first guests. We had a lovely week of walking in the local hills, getting long days out in the mountains and visiting Iona, something I've wanted to do for many years. It's in a beautifully peaceful location and the house itself exudes a sense of calm, partly from the combination of old stone building and spacious new extension, and partly from the carefully chosen, stylish decor.
Apart from being in a beautiful location, the other things that are important to us are : having a good, hot bath after long days in the hills, a kitchen which has the space and equipment to cook dinner from scratch, a comfortable bed, car parking next to the house and being able to take the dog with us.
We'd go and live there ourselves if it wasn't for the midges! There's something very special about being on a Scottish island that is hard to define - and its very good for the soul.
