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.

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.
