Things to Do
The house is set in 450 acres of undulating land with a rocky coastline and a backdrop of the mountainous scenery of this southern corner of Mull. There are great views toward the mainland too. The area is sparsely populated and the peace and tranquility and excellent wildlife here make this a great place to relax.
Craignure is the closest village which has a village shop, pub and coffee shop. There is also a small golf course just north of the village and the Isle of Mull Hotel has a swimming pool and spa open to non residents. The south of the island has some lovely beauty spots to explore. Lochbuie is a thirty minute drive from the house where there are great coastal walks; a lovely beach (Laggan Sands); mature woodland and the ruins of Moy Castle. It is a scenic drive to this part of the island along the shore of Loch Spelve and Loch Uisg.
Duart castle is another attraction that is easily reached from the house - you can take a tour of the castle or visit the tearoom (not open in the winter). Further afield, Tobermory, the capital of the island is a 45 minute drive north of the house with its colourful buildings set around a sheltered harbour. There are restaurants, shops, an arts centre and theatre here and boat trips to neighbouring islands. Wildlife tours are also a good way to see the island and there are various tour operators that will meet you in Craignure at the start of the day.
