If you want a peaceful escape from city life, Ploughman's Cottage is the perfect location. It is a long way from anywhere, so do factor in total isolation, especially in the winter months when most restaurants on the island shut up shop. Come prepared to cook yourself and hunker down! Great meat at Ardalanish Weavers a few miles away from the cottage. We were lucky with the weather - went on fabulous walks without another soul in sight. Some great walks direct from the cottage itself - strongly recommend going to Ardalanish beach too, and a walk along The Burg peninsula from Tiroran Hotel.

Fab location - idyllic, peaceful. Main sound was ravens calling. Lovely walks and beautiful close-by beaches. Eagle lookout point below trig pt above Scoor beach - so superb views of an eagle one morning. We saw them 3 times out of 5/6 visits to this spot.
V well quipped cottage and we had a lovely stay. Sun room a great spot and we sat in the garden a fair bit too.
Would just say that the bumpy road would probably put me off booking here again - but this was clear in the details. You do have to factor this in re getting to ferries etc and basically going anywhere away from the cottage....

The cottages is very cosy and has got everything you need. The WiFi solution was not working fine on some of our devices. The location is spectacular with seascapes, beaches and nice but very wet walks. We.even went swimming on the most beautiful beach next to the cottage. The upper space and room is not appropriate at all for an average tall guest (our son ist 6 feet tall) and you have to notice that due to road conditions of the final 2 miles, it takes you 18 min from the main road to get to the cottage.

We visit Scotland every year in summer to escape the heat of France. This year my wife had proposed Mull, and Ploughman's cottage seduced us. I had personally been reticent to stay two weeks, but I'm happy to have agreed because I could have easily stayed for three.
We just LOVED our time on Mull and Iona. Between visits to golden beaches, the highland games, fishing, boat trips to see dolphins and whales, even snorkling, we had one of our best holidays ever.
The cottage was the perfect comfortable and peaceful base for us, a short trip from Fionnphort and Iona which we visited 4 times.

Very rural cottage. So peaceful and rugged scenery with great views from the property. Take your wellies because outside the property is very muddy. Cottage has comfortable beds and had everything we needed. We found the couches a bit on the soft side. No heating on when we arrived but we soon got it going and the log burner on.

Where to start? There are so many wonderful things to say. The location is spectacular with seascapes, beeches and coves you'd expect on a tropical island. The wildlife is mind blowing: eagles, hen harriers, seals, otters, porpoises and cuckoos everywhere. Every day was perfect whether we were island hopping, swimming in crystal seas, walking on the mountains or visiting the pubs and restaurants. The cottage was so comfortable, well equipped and beautifully finished. We slept like babies! Cannot wait to revisit. Thank you!
