Fabulous location. Cottage living room. Very small and uncomfortable furniture. Setees not at all comfy. Stairs a nightmare to negotiate and upstairs rooms very cramped. Wont be back to this cottage. Have stayed on mull many times and this has been by far the most disappointing accommodation.

Totally loved the cottage! Obviously the location is perfect, and we had the beach to ourselves, total freedom for our dog!
The weather was predictably cold, but we came home to a lovely warm cottage every day. Found it super comfy. Re the upstairs the two bedrooms are built in the roof space, but still roomy enough, for adults the stairs are steep but we had no problem with them, and we are in our 60’s. We stayed as a couple and a dog so slept in the downstairs double. Very comfortable.
Gaynor the housekeeper had done a brilliant job in us arriving to a lovely clean and warm cottage.

No doubting the location is 5 star. We had the beach to ourselves most days. However cottage is small and living room isn’t very comfortable. We were 2 adults and 1 dog and felt cramped. Upstairs bedrooms have very low ceilings so only suitable for small children, but the steep polished wood stairs I’d argue aren’t safe for small children and impossible for anyone over 60. Had to unpack a freezer upon arrival but having learnt previous 2 x sets of guests had to use the cafe’s freezer a mile away I guess I should be grateful.

Best cottage we have stayed in. Made even better by being in a great location. Great views of Calgary Bay. Arnie enjoyed exploring. The garden is absolutely dog proof. Highly recommended.

This was a lovely cottage to stay in, set in a beautiful location, and with the added bonus we could take our dog with us. We had a thoroughly relaxing week exploring this part of Mull and swimming in the sea. We hope to return some day.

We spent a great week in this lovely cottage. The added bonus was the gorgeous beach across the road where we spent all week paddle boarding and swimming.

Looking to book again as we constantly look back on a superb week in his wonderful cotttage. Location idyllic, cottage superb, one of the few places I truly relaxed and slept like a baby!

Such a cosy cottage in a most beautiful location. The views are amazing and all around the local area are lovely walks with great scenery and wildlife. Can't wait to come back.

An absolutely spectacular location and a truly authentic cottage. We loved it in every way. It doesn’t advertise itself as a unique cottage, but it is every bit as unique as a castle, lighthouse or windmill. There must be perhaps only a dozen properties in the whole of the UK which are in a location as exceptional as Sands Cottage. One of our happiest holidays ever. Dog and cat friendly policy made all of this possible. That we also enjoyed a week of stunning blue sky and sunshine whilst the rest of the UK endured snowmageddon was an extra bonus which we could hardly believe.

Outstanding location and a really terrific little cottage.

Beautiful cottage in an amazing setting. Mull is simply beautiful. Too big to explore in a week and we didn't see otters so we will just have to come back. Real fire in an evening was lovely to come home to :). Couldn't recommend this place high enough !!!
By Gill Alleyne stayed in February 2017
Lovely cottage in beautiful location , thank you Gaynor for the little touches such as fire ready laid.
Mull as magical as ever , sunshine every day for a week in November , dolphins dancing round the ferry returning to Oban , what a treat!
By Julie stayed in November 2016
This warm cosy Cottage was a welcome sight after 13hrs traveling and avoiding the mull car rally. Housing 4 adults and 2 dogs for the week was easy, great having the beach on the doorstep, dogs loved it. Fantastic location, seen almost everything the local wildlife offers. Looking forward to coming back soon!

We had a wonderful break at this quiet, cozy, warm, and clean cottage. The cottage overlooks the beach and it just a short walk to get around to it. The cottage is warm and has everything you could need in it. We will definitely be back to this cottage and would highly recommend it.

This fabulous cottage and beautiful location provided us with all that was needed for a very special holiday - managing to please a teenager, two young adults , two older adults and two dogs..... no mean feat....just perfect!
By Carol McFarlane stayed in July 2016
Superb little cottage, right on the sea. Ideal for my old dog as he could easily run on the beach. Ideal for the younger one who could run and swim! Comfortable, clean and well equipped - we wanted for nothing. A perfect holiday on a perfect Island.
By Heather Magee stayed in April 2016
fabulous location, even the damp weather didn't put us off from walking on the beach. A lovely spot for wild life enthusiasts and those just wanting to chill out as we did.
By Elizabeth Rushton stayed in August 2015
Cosy cottage. Beautiful location - I don't think you can beat it on Mull. And the dog loved being yards from the beach!
By ANNABEL MORGAN stayed in May 2015
Cozy comfortable and warm cottage. Fantastic location right on the beach with easy access to 2 fabulous restaurants. Being able to have our dog with us was fabulous.
By debbie and Tim stayed in April 2015
We both enjoyed our stay at Sands Cottage immensely. Wonderful cozy, well equipped cottage in a very private location. A few steps away from a beautiful, quiet beach. We'll remember this wonderful holiday forever as we were even lucky enough to see the Aurora Borealis right above the cottage.
By Jacquie and Steve Williams stayed in March 2015
We very much enjoyed our stay in Sands Cottage. It is well fitted out, and comfortable. It was a cold time of year, but we were generally very cosy in the cottage, and we loved the direct access to the beach.
By Jo Shaw stayed in January 2015
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The cottage was just what we needed, warm, cozy, all the facilities you would expect (wi-fi, tv, heating etc etc) but what the holiday was the location. A 10 second walk and you are in the beach. We stayed in January so we had the beach to ourselves. Kids loved playing in the water and rock pooling. We had some great walks as well, didn't use a map, just followed our nose and had some very rewarding scenery for our efforts. We kept our eyes pealed for white tailed Eagles but no joy, spotted an owl one night when driving back to the cottage.
If you want a peaceful cottage near a beach then this is perfect! Make sure you get your supplies in as the nearest shop is a good 20min drive away.
