Things to Do
There are wide range of habitats in a relatively small area here which make it a popular area for birdwatchers, outdoor enthusiasts and photographers. The mountains of central Mull dominate the southern shore of Loch na Keal, and the loch itself is rich in marine life. Groups of dolphin and even whales are seen here on occasion as well as eagles, waders and divers . There is old woodland at the head of the loch and sloping uplands on the north shore.
It's a short walk from the house to Ulva Ferry where a small boat can be caught to the island. The Isle of Ulva is a beautiful little island with some fantastic marked walks, a small historical centre at Sheila's Cottage to visit, as well as an excellent food at The Boathouse. There are tour boats departing to the Treshnish islands from Ulva Ferry which makes for a great day trip during your stay.
Heading up the north coast, guests can visit Lip na Cloiche with its beautiful gardens and crafts for sale as well, and there's also the excellent Black Beach to explore which is reached via a farm track through some old woodland.
