A simply superb property There was just the 2 of us who stayed for a week but it is a large and beautiful house . Views and tranquility are exceptional . A fabulous kitchen and dining area . Lounge and wood burning stove an evening delight ( once hubby had mastered firing it up !! ) The art work around the house and very special decoration made it a total delight . A so much appreciated holiday .

We had a great time at Gorsten House during our stay in October. Great house with magnificent views and a unique vibe! We loved the artwork at the property and the eco-focussed communal products supplied!
Thanks to Charlotte for super quick replies to any queries.
Hope to come back again very soon

Gorsten House is such a great holiday home! We stayed as a group of 8 adults and had the best time! The views from the panoramic window are unrivalled as well as from the bathtubs. It’s a great base to explore the island from and would certainly return!

Our family had a wonderful stay in Gorsten House. So much space for the children, the views are stunning, and wildlife everywhere - from the living room window we saw sea eagles, cuckoos, seals, porpoises, dolphins and whales. Lots of easy walks down to the beach. The house is lovely and very comfortable, and our hosts were extremely helpful and hospitable. We have travelled and stayed in some beautiful places around Europe and beyond, but Gorsten House just about tops the lot - a very special place. We very much hope to return soon

Unique, special place to stay enjoyed by our family group celebrating a 70th birthday. Views from lounge and bedrooms gave sightings of minke whale, white tailed eagles, hen harriers, skylarks and views across the Sound of Mull.
The children loved the house as much as the adults and all enjoyed local walks, table tennis and peace and tranquility.
Need to return to see the elusive otters!

Lovely situation with great views. Sadly not quite as luxury as the photos showed with lots of building rubble and detritus at the front and slightly below par beds (mattress quality in two rooms and double rather than king size). Felt a bit tired and unloved. Hopefully as the season progresses they will address these issues as it could be great.

Fascinating and unique place to stay. Multi generational family group staying. Master bedroom and larger bedroom downstairs with wood burning stove excellent as is the main living area. Fabulous views from huge picture windows including from the bath in the main bedroom. Wild and rugged environment. House fits in perfectly. Enjoyed feeding the chickens and watching the farmers withe the sheep. Excellent place for viewing wildlife and lots of walks on doorstep. Thanks

We had a wonderful stay at Gorsten, celebrating my husbands 60th. It definitely is a home from home, very comfortable with plenty of space. The bathrooms were lovely and I thoroughly enjoyed the view from the roll top bath in the master bedroom. We were not lucky enough to see eagles on this visit, but hope to on our future visits.

It’s an amazing house in a perfect location, well stocked with everything you could need, a real home from home and we will be back. Otters and white tailed eagle in the garden and harriers from the lounge window, it’s the best we’ve found on Mull yet after 20 plus visits

Wonderful and relaxing house! Amazing surroundings and views! Perfect place to discover the Isle of Mull.

This unique house is a heavenly getaway. It combines luxury and wildness in a really special way.
For sea-swimming, wildlife-watching, cloud-spotting and generally getting back to earth, Gorsten is highly recommended.

You miss a place when you leave it and think of it afterwards..... What a relaxing and peaceful property. Watching the elegant rare eagles in their element, and plethora of wildlife that we observed from the property, the telescope had us engaged for hours.
The sauna and steam room were the icing on the cake, towards the end of each day it would be the sauna and steam room, oh my, you could then just leave to your rooms and fall asleep instantly.
As the property is remote, 4g signal can be picked up outside the rear of the house and to my surprise, the kids room up the wooden steps by the kitchen, excellent 4g signal.
The property has an enormous wealth of books to read around art, and i spent quite some time reading 'how are you feeling' by David Shrigley and 'The art of looking sideways' by Alan Fletcher.......

This house is a special place to spend time. The view from the house to the sea is magnificent and the huge picture windows let you enjoy it from most places inside, even the shower. While exploring the coastline in front of the house we saw an otter on two different days even though our dog was swimming in the sea. The owners have put a lot of thought into the house and it wouldn't be out of place on an episode of Grand Designs. We are lucky they are happy to share it.

Perfect holiday house, both in terms of house, and location with views. Just what we needed. It was perfect for a family holiday lots of kids.
We needed to make some adjustments for toddlers as there are spiral stairs etc. but the older kids and adults really suited it well.
By Tim Shirley stayed in April 2016
Stunning property in every way; the decor and fittings are fantastic and only really upstaged by the views across the bay to the lighthouse. Charles and Dorothea the owners are exceptionally helpful for the one issue we had. We were there as a group of adults for a Hogmanay break, but it would also work really well as a family holiday.
