The year of the staycation has shown us just what incredible food, white-sand beaches and breath-taking scenery is to be found without first taking to the skies. Add to that the peace and solitude, often enjoying an entire beach with no one but seals accompanying you, and you can see the beauty of honeymoons on the Isle of Mull.
Picture a well-wrapped walk as you beachcomb for treasures along the high tide line. Stunning road trips around the island you have to see to believe, as you hug the cliffs and the sea lochs lap the roadside. Once-in-a-lifetime moments as dolphins appear as you sail to outlying islands…
And then it’s home to your luxury cottage, perfect for honeymoons on the Isle of Mull, for a soak in the bath tub complete with pampering essentials from Isle of Mull Soap, and onwards to a candlelit feast. From the finest seafood and scallops fresh from the fishing boat, to irresistible steak and venison reared here on the hills, foodies will find plenty to whet their appetites. Dine in but let someone else do the cooking, or venture out to one of Mull’s fantastic eateries, the choice is yours.
So, which are our top cottage picks for honeymoons on the Isle of Mull? Read on and find the luxury escape you’ve been longing for.
