4 Tips for a Fantastic Family Holiday on Mull

The car is packed, picnic lunches are planned and you’re ready to set off on a family holiday on Mull. But just how do you make sure everyone has a great time? We talk you through our top tips…

Plan a family holiday on Mull that everyone will enjoy with these great tips for things to do, places to go and the best holiday homes to stay in.

Find a house for your family holiday

Whether your family is big or small, having plenty of space counts. Book a larger holiday home and you’ll have room to store toys, boots and outdoor kit galore, without any clutter.

If you’re a family of wildlife lovers or who adore sea views, then The Old Ferry House could be just the place for you.

For those who prefer privacy and seclusion, Craig Ben Lodge is an excellent choice. There’s a walled garden for the kids to run about and play and you look out over a loch – great for a swim on a warm day. For larger groups, you can also book Craig Ben Cottage, which is just next door.

If your heart is set on colourful Tobermory, the location where children’s TV show Balamory was filmed, make Carnanamish your base. This spacious holiday home has all the attractions a family could want within easy reach. Even better is the contemporary design that grown-ups will love too.

Plan an action-packed island itinerary

Whether it’s days out at the beach or exciting boat trips, there’s so much to do on a family holiday on Mull.

In Tobermory alone, you can take the family to explore the exhibits at Mull Museum, meet the island’s marine neighbours at the Mull Aquarium or simply build sandcastles on the beach. Should wet weather strike and you prefer to stay inside, the Rainydays play area will fast become a favourite. Discover more things to do on a rainy day.

For adventurous families, there’s the opportunity for wild swimming, rugged country walks and even scenic pony trekking. Find more ideas for your family holiday on Mull in our guide to things to do.

Make meal times memorable

One of the greatest benefits of booking a self-catering cottage for your family holiday on Mull is that you can dine in or out. Eating out every day with the whole family can become expensive and doesn’t always suit your different needs and routines.

Our holiday homes are maintained to beautiful standards, with well-equipped kitchens that make preparing food a pleasure. And if you want to eat at home but don’t fancy cooking, there’s the excellent Lochbuie Larder. Offering home-cooked ready meals delivered on Mull, they’re well worth treating yourselves to.

Celebrate Christmas on Mull

One of the most popular times to get together with family is the festive period. Many of our properties offer a magical base for your Christmas celebrations, complete with spectacular views, luxurious furnishings and some memorable island traditions.

If you can’t get away for Christmas itself, you could visit to see the Tobermory Christmas lights turned on. It’s a feel-good family event that usually takes place in November.
