Loch Don Location for Ardwhin Cottage

Ardwhin Cottage is situated around the sheltered bay of Loch don - a tidal sea loch. This part of the island is well known for its abundant wildlife as there are a wide range of habitats close by, from mountainous uplands to sandy and rocky coastline as well as marshland, rivers and streams. From the cottage door, guests can walk out towards the peninsula head where there are tracks down to the coast and up to a view point of Duart Castle.

Nearest village: Craignure (3 miles)
Drive to ferry terminal at Craignure: 5 minutes

Things to Do

The house is a similar distance from the island capital of Tobermory, as it is to the south western tip of Mull, where you can get a boat to visit Iona, Staffa, or the Treshnish Islands - both journeys take around forty five minutes, so it is a good location for those wanting to get a good overall impression of the island. This is a beautiful part of Mull, with some lovely localities to explore nearby such as Croggan, Lochbuie, Grasspoint and Duart Castle.

Craignure is the nearest village (10 minutes by car) where there is a Spar shop for essentials, Arlene's coffee shop, an excellent community charity shop, as well as the Craignure Inn for lunches and evening meals and MacGregor's Roadhouse, also serving food and drinks. Also in Craignure is the Isle of Mull community swimming pool with spa and gym. Duart Castle, an iconic landmark on Mull is also just five minutes away in the car, where you can take a tour, walk around Duart point, and enjoy a cup of tea and cake, or a bite to eat in the tearoom (April to October).
