Things to Do
Duart Castle is a well-known landmark, just a mile or so from the house. The castle is open from April through to the end of October and you can take a tour and visit the tearoom and shop. The house is conveniently close to Craignure, where the ferry lands on Mull. Craignure has a Spar shop, coffee shop, village hall and small children's play park. Just outside the village centre is the Isle of Mull hotel, which has a swimming pool, spa and gym that are all open to the public. Relaxing in the hot tub is a great way to while away a few hours on a rainy day.
The south-eastern corner of Mull has some stunning scenery on offer, so it is ideal for walkers and outdoor enthusiasts. There are some great hill walking opportunities and more sedate coastal paths in this area of the island, plus a couple of fantastic beaches too. Laggan Sands is particularly impressive and the scenery at Lochbuie (a 25-minute drive away) is just stunning, with otters regularly seen around the shore of Loch Spelve.
If you want to visit Iona, Fionnphort is a 45-minute drive from the house, and Tobermory can also be reached in a similar time, with its picturesque harbour and main street lined with gift shops and eateries. A wildlife tour is also a good way to see more of the island and gives you a good chance of seeing the eagles, otters and deer the island is well known for.
