Great venue, nicely equipped, good location,
However the fire safety elements need to be overhauled.
Two rooms have had smoke detectors removed. Kitchen has smoke detector rather than heat detector and cooking anything set of the alarm. Not sure if all alarms are connected as required as if one goes off they all should. Could have been a much better experience without this continued annoyance. Plus better broadband access.

Editor's Note: Smoke detectors working correctly now at Keills
A great location for exploring the Ross of Mull. The cottage is well equipped and very homely. Lots of wildlife to be seen and beautiful and walks nearby. Will definitely come back.

This a great cottage in good location. It is two miles from the centre of Bunesson (about a 45 min walk along quiet single track) and close to some good beaches). Saw hen arriers hunting over breakfast which was great too
There were a few issues in the house. Geting hot water from the shower was a bit hit and miss and the tv was a bit tempramental to sort out at times, you have to do your own recylcing (not sure why when all the nearby houses hvae the required recycling bins) and most annoying of all the mattress on the main bed badly dipped in the middle and was possibly one of the worst mattresses I have slept on!

Editor's Note: Thank you for your comments. The owners purchased a new John Lewis mattress for the cottage in 2018, we will keep an eye on feedback from other guests
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Keills Cottage. Clearly the cleaning issues mentioned by others have been resolved, for we found it in excellent condition, and very comfortable. Though some of the weather was very cold and wet, we were very comfortable and warm. Lovely location for exploring the Ross of Mull.

This is a lovely cottage ideal for touring mull.very warm and cosy,furnished to a good standard.tv worked well but sometimes lost picture in heavy rain and high wind.
Although you are asked to clean before you leave this was difficult as there was no brush head for hoover.after reading review from June it is clear that the owners have not taken action.the hole interior needs a good clean.I cleaned the windows in kitchen inside and out so that we could see properly.

Nice cottage in a great location for exploring the Ross of Mull and Iona. The cottage has good wifi and tv reception given its remoteness. The garden has clearly been improved from when earlier comments were written. It may be the passage of time since previous positive comments were written but we felt the kitchen was a little worn out and in need of attention. On balance a good enough cottage with a lovely new extension but it was definitely let down on our arrival by a less than perfect standard of cleanliness which was disappointing at the start of our holiday.

Oh dear wish we had looked at the pillows etc under the covers at the start of the week and not the end. It is very disappointing to see standards that low for the cost of the cottage you would certainly expect better

Comfortable and spacious cottage with good facilities. We liked the choice of sitting areas. Lovely views and good location for the Ross of Mull. A few small things could have been better.

Keills Cottage was in a very peaceful location with great views. This location gives you great scope to see the stunning beaches on the Ross of Mull and also be able to visit Iona.The local wildlife is amazing,deers,eagles,otters etc. The cottage itself is homely and practical.As per other review the garden round the back and sides does require some attention. Ideal cottage for family groups and dog lovers.The little things seem to be well thought through and make the stay more pleasant.Would happily recommend.

We had a fantastic stay in the lovely Keills cottage. Very cosy and comfortable. Would highly recommend this cottage. Thank you.

A lovely, well equipped cottage in probably the most interesting area in Mull, with stunning beaches and islands to visit nearby. The local pub is also worth visiting. The only criticism that we would make is that the garden is very overgrown and desperately needs tidying up, otherwise an excellent cottage to which we would happily return.
By Colin and Wendy stayed in July 2015
Keills Cottage is a real gem as it is in a stunning location with many opportunities for walking and watching wildlife. We enjoyed seeing the birds and deer right outside the window as we ate breakfast. The cottage itself is an imaginative conversion of an old stone cottage. It is well-equipped and comfortable. Highly recommended.

If your looking for a comfortable base for your holiday look no further. The cottage is well set out, fully equipped and so relaxing. It is set in a good position for exploring the Ross of Mull.
By Pete Lewis stayed in June 2015
This is a lovely, comfortable and well equipped cottage. We had a wonderful stay and would definitely return to Keills Cottage. It's in a nice remote location but the walk to the local town (and pub) isn't as far as it looks which was a bonus. Lots of beautiful local scenery to explore and when it rained we were cosy in front of the log burning stove. Highly recommended.

I would like to thank the owners of Keills Cottage and Isle of Mull Cottages for making our first stay on Mull a truly wonderful one. The cottage was in a perfect location....hen harriers seen from the kitchen window, what more could you ask for?
Well maybe a bit and for that it was great to get out and explore The Ross of Mull and the rest of the Island, Ulva and Iona. Long days but worth every moment and knowing that there was a beautiful comfortable cottage on our return at the end of everyday made it even more relaxing.
It was a home from home holiday but with a stunning island as a backdrop.
Thank you so very much for making us feel welcome.
I'd like to have kept this place as our secret to ensure that it is free to return to, but I feel that the secret should be shared so everyone could see it for themselves.
We will be back for more.
PS don't forget to bring a Oban tide timetable and an endless amount of energy. The smiles will be never ending.

Our first stay in the Cottage and on the Island. The cottage is in a great location, very quiet - perfect spot to relax and recharge the batteries. Cottage is very clean and comfortable and has everything you need. Fenced and secure garden which was a must for us as we took our Dog with us.
We were lucky to have wall to wall sunshine for the week we were there, and many a day was spent on Uisken Beach which was only a short drive from the Cottage.
We had a fantastic stay and will return in the future.
