Corrieyairack is a detached self-catering house in the village of Dervaig situated just a stone's throw from the oldest inn on the island (The Bellachroy) and a hundred metres or so from the village shop. The house has a neighbouring property which looks identical, and sits opposite a field where sheep and donkeys occasionally reside. It also overlooks Kilmore church, a landmark building in the area with its pretty white pencil tower. This is the ideal location for those wanting the added interest of village life in the Inner Hebridies, coupled with easy access to the well known beach at Calgary, and the main town of Tobermory.

Things to Do
The picturesque village of Dervaig is in the north of Mull which is beside the beautiful Loch Cuin and is surrounded by gentle, rolling hills. There are some beautiful areas of coastline to explore close by, patches of mature woodland and forestry, and of course fantastic wildlife. Red deer can be seen roaming the flats at the head of Loch Cuin while sea eagles and golden eagles are often seen in the skies above. Head to Calgary for an easy to access, beautiful, white sandy bay. Or get off the beaten track and explore Langamull or Port na Ba (excellent beaches).
Tobermory is a twenty minute drive from Corrieyairack, and Calgary bay around fifteen minutes, so both beautiful coastline and the hustle and bustle of the main town, are within easy reach. Tobermory has a great selection of boutique shops on the harbour front selling local art work, gifts and more. There is also a museum, aquarium and arts centre, as well as a theatre (on the outskirts of town) and you can sample some wonderful local produce in the cafes and restaurants, or take a boat trip out to one of the neighbouring islands or to look for marine life.
The Bellachroy provides evening meals in the village and there are a couple of other restaurants within a fifteen minute drive from Dervaig too (Am Birlinn and Ballygown). There is the Old Byre Heritage centre to visit just outside the village centre and there is a tearoom and gallery at Calgary too.
