Things to Do
Dervaig is a small settlement in North Mull with a village shop, the oldest inn on the island (The Bellachroy), a village hall and church. The stone cottages that line the 'main street' in the village, and the pretty white pencil tower of Kilmore church, make this a picturesque little village. Set beside Loch Cuin, and being within easy reach of some excellent beaches, makes this an appealing location. It's a twenty minute drive to Tobermory from the house where you can peruse the range of boutique shops and cafes and visit the aquarium and museum.
There are walking opportunities from the door of Burn Cottage. Guests can easily make their way to the shore of Loch Cuin, which is particularly nice on a high tide, and can explore the shoreline there and watch for birds and otters. Sea eagles are frequently seen in the area and red deer too. Cyclists will find the single track roads very enticing, and the west coast of the island is a fantastic stretch to explore, either in the car or by bike. Ulva Ferry can be reached in twenty minutes where boats depart to the Treshnish islands, Staffa and the Isle of Ulva.
