Absolutely amazing cottage lots of living space , cosy oil burner which heated the whole house. Seals in the loch every day sadly no otter. Weather for October was good, a short drive to the shop lots of deers and stags all over the island a lovely walk at fionnphort watching sae eagles from the beach. Trip to Iona was amazing , well stocked spar on there , beaches are breathtaking white sands and clear blue sea. Found our otters in the other side of the loch at Dereach. Didn’t want to come home.

Having seen this property over the years we got the opportunity to stay this year and were not disappointed. The house was warm if not a little too warm for us at times - but very comfortable both down stairs in the open plan lounge / kitchen and the bedrooms upstairs. The views across the loch were superb and the 'sitootery' added an extra sitting area to enjoy the scene. Unlike previous visitors we were not lucky enough to see the local otter - perhaps next time!!!
Getting up and out for 9:00am on our last morning was a bit of pressure to end our visit, another hour would help.

We could not have asked for a better place for our home away from home. The location is so beautiful! We were able to make some meals at our place and slept so well. Highly recommend!!
By Dana and Ryan stayed in September 2023
A beautiful cottage, well equipped and spacious. The view was amazing and the setting very peaceful. We enjoyed the local beaches and coves and found Iona to be beautiful. Saw three basking sharks on our trip to Staffa and two sets of dolphins. A memorable holiday.

We stayed at The Old Church for 2 weeks and we really didn’t want to leave. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped, the Sitootary is great fun! But the crowing glory is the view… it is just superb! We saw Otters and seals everyday and just to watch the changing clouds and lighting effects on the landscape was amazing! We would definitely recommend this property!????

Third time we've stayed at the Old Church, and it remains a firm favourite. Beautiful location, comfortable, well equipped and scrupulously clean.
By Geoff Cusick stayed in May 2023
A beautiful cottage in a stunning location. The cottage is spacious and has everything you could want with a cosy stove , well equipped kitchen, good WiFi and comfortable beds. The garden is peaceful with lovely views across the loch and sheltered which meant we stayed the whole day in the garden one sunny day We really didn’t want to leave
By Lucinda Chapleo stayed in April 2023
We had a fabulous holiday at the old church. It is beautifully located right on the loch side with views of Ben More and we’ll positioned for heading north or south on the island. The house is comfortable and spacious, and extremely well equipped. Amazing walking, kayaking and swimming in the sea. We definitely want to return.
By Andrea stayed in September 2022
A beautiful house, superbly equipped, spotlessly clean and comfortable. Situated perfectly on a beautiful Loch in a beautiful place. The rain didn't matter. The wildlife was amazing - even the otter turned up on our first evening. We had a perfect holiday to celebrate a 60th birthday with 2 of our grown up boys. Lynn was very friendly and helpful. We will be back. Thank you. ????
By Kate stayed in June 2022
Excellent in all respects. Stunning location, beautiful, perfectly equipped property. highly recommended. Even the local bird population cooperated, coming to our feeders.
By Marilyn Ritchie stayed in September 2021
We loved every minute of our stay. The house is very well equipped, warm and comfortable. The location is absolutely stunning. Great location to visit Iona too - which is a must. The drive through Glen More to reach the house is amazing. We would definitely book this property again and it is highly recommended.
By Kathryn stayed in June 2021
Idyllic location and lovely house and garden.
By Hannah and Alf stayed in May 2021
Been back several times because it is the perfect place for peace and tranquility. Plenty of lovely beaches and places to visit, one being Iona, it's just beautiful. The cottage is very clean, spacious, and well equipped. The garden is right onto the Loch and if your lucky you may spot the Otters returning. Looking over to Ben More from the garden is amazing, and don't miss the Eagles being fed on Loch na Keal each day.
By Mrs Carole Tyler stayed in April 2021
We would definitely recommend staying at The Old Church. It has been one of the most comfortable and beautiful places we have ever rented. Fabulous views out to the Loch, great garden and wonderful sitootary. A really good location, easy to access and not far from some of the best beaches on Mull.
By Fiona & Chris stayed in October 2019
The Old Church you couldn’t ask for a better place to stay. The cottage was beautiful, clean and plenty of room. The view from the cottage and the garden is fantastic you look across the loch to Ben Mor. We had beautiful weather as well.
By Tina and Andy stayed in September 2019
Wonderful stay on Mull in a beautiful house, with everything you need and a great outlook onto the Loch and Ben More. Seen 3 sightings of the otter from the house and lots of diving gannets. Lots of seals a few miles up the road and some nice beaches. We took an early 8:30am ferry to Iona - but be aware nothing opens until 10am.. On a clear night, the stars are amazing - lots of shooting stars. Would recommend you stock- up at Oban and plan your meals ahead., there’s a slow cooker in the house, which was really handy.
By Rhona Beecham stayed in August 2019
We loved staying at the Old Church. it has been beautifully renovated and is very well equipped and easy to live in. We loved the gardens and the Sitootary . Saw sea otters and seals. We kayaked off the rocks below the house and cycled to Iona. We will definitely be back.
By Anne McMurray stayed in July 2019
Fantastic cottage, a perfect home from home. Fabulous location, amazing wildlife, otters swimming by usually at approx 10:20pm, white tail eagles, great northern diver, gannet, herons and the hourly flyby by the Oyster catchers.
Totally agree and recommend Mull Charters sea eagle trip, cafe fish at Tobermory, Flora’s meals from the Old Post Office at Lochbuie and the Boathouse at Ulva. We will definitely book again with Isle of Mull Cottages and look forward to returning to Mull one day soon.,
By Amanda Dixey stayed in June 2019
Fantastic cottage. Well equipped and comfortably cosy. Everything we needed was provided - ensuite, off-road parking, gorgeous views, privacy, solitude, and porpoise in the loch outside! A must is the Mull Charter boat trip to see the Sea Eagles - amazing! Can recommend Hebridean Lodge for a wonderful meal - bit of drive down to Tobermory end but well worth it.
Wildlife sightings were fabulous as usual - both eagles, porpoise, otters! Thank you for a marvellous week.
By Jane & Simon Towler stayed in May 2019
Wow, what a fabulous property! The setting was fantastic and quality of accommodation was top class. The kitchen has everything! We had a fantastic week, Snow, blizzards, gales and bright sunshine! Wildlife everywhere, Mull is amazing and staying in this cottage was the icing on the cake.
By Maria Wright stayed in March 2019
Wonderful house provided a great base for our holiday. Mull is a beautiful island and looked great in November. Wildlife plentiful and everywhere!
By Eleanor Douglas stayed in November 2018

By keith stayed in October 2018
We had a fantastic family holiday at the Old church. The cottage is very comfortable and cosy with a beautiful garden and views. Its the perfect place to explore the Ross of Mull. We didnt want to leave!
By John stayed in August 2018
Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location. Fantastic views from all windows, and so many different seating areas to choose from to watch the wildlife or just chill.
By Rita Inglis stayed in June 2018
Absolutely gorgeous! The position is outstanding with otters swimming late afternoon. Peaceful and utterly relaxing. Nice and snug in the evenings
All you need is there for a truly lovely holiday.
Ben More Estate is a must to walk and tour. Red throated divers, hen harriers and eagles to name a few. Very Highly Recommended.

By Susi stayed in February 2018
Absolutely fabulous cottage we loved it and would definitely go back again, we stayed with our daughter and son in law Tracy and Barry Thomas had lots of room for the four of us, it really was like a dream when we first set foot inside and the "Sitoutery" was wonderful would definitely make more use of it at a different time of year, the views were amazing. Loved hearing the stags calling as it is rutting season will never forget that sound, heard them everyday and night fantastic. Highly recommended.
By Vanda Miller stayed in October 2017
We stayed in the old Church in the autumn with our 3 children, we didn’t want to leave. It’s thoughtfully and beautifully renovated, with amazing views. It was really warm all the time and really well equipped, the garden house was perfect and easy to make warm too. Mull is a very special and friendly island. We’ll be back. The spa at Bunessen and the scattering of local food shops felt that we could get all we need here on the island.
By Sarah stayed in October 2017
Absolutely wonderful cottage. The quality second to none. The interior design and detail very tasteful. Oil burner kept the cottage warm right the way through our stay. The Aspect of the property right by the Loch side, wonderful. We arrived late at night in the dark but when we woke in the morning and pulled up the blind what a view that greeted us. We loved the Sitootery. Watched the deer all night.
Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Sea Otters galore!!! Thank you and we will be definately coming again.
By Calvin Stockton stayed in October 2017
Fantastic accommodation in a beautiful location, on our favourite Scottish island. The Old Church has a cosy, yet modern 'home from home' feel and equipped to a very high standard. The garden gives access to the shore of Loch Shridean, from where we launched our kayak most days, and the windows give great views across the loch towards Ben More.
If you are into wildlife, then the daily views of otters on the loch from the house, along with common seal, gannets, divers, eagles should keep you entertained.
We've just booked it again for next year which should be enough recommendation !
By Ross Johns stayed in September 2017
The Old Church exceeded our expectations, and they were high from the outset. It was a pleasure to spend time in the main house and the sitooterie, with amazing views from every window. It's the most spectacularly beautiful setting. No otter sightings, sadly, but we did see a seal on the beach at Iona!
I would advise stocking up in Oban before arriving in Mull. We used the Spar at Bunessan to top up and that seemed to work.
By Angie Sutherland stayed in August 2017
The Old Church is a beautiful renovation which has created the perfect base to discover the wonders of Mull. The cottage is equipped with everything you need and more. The downstairs open-plan space is large and well thought out and the bedrooms are simple, cosy and comfortable. The star of the property though has to be the location with wonderful sea views from almost every window. Great wildlife on the door-step and easy access to all of the southern Mull activities. Even Tobermory is only 50 minutes away. Overall, a wonderful base for a great family holiday.
By The Whitmans stayed in August 2017
Had a wonderful week in this delightful property and agree with other comments about the renovation. We will definitely return as we found this property very relaxing and comfortable. It was a pleasure to return to the Old Church after being out for the day. We also appreciated the lochside location and stunning views of Ben More.
By Mark and Julie Dootson stayed in August 2017
A beautifully appointed and beautifully sited property. Conversion done to a very high standard and everything in place to make your stay perfect.
The bedrooms make incredibly good wildlife watching spots! Great Northern Divers, and otters were seen on a daily basis and we watched deer at close hand less than 5 minutes walk along the road.
The rest of Mull is wonderful so do and try to drag yourself away from this beatufull place now and then.
The cottage is very warm and inviting and tranquil.
By Graham Newton stayed in April 2017
Stunning church conversion providing immaculate gorgeous 3 bedroom accommodation and enormous living area. Further benefits from a spacious detached 'Sitootary' (garden room to us English folk), with outstanding views of the lovely garden leading down to the Loch and mountains beyond. Thanks for terrific customer service from Becky at Isle of Mull Cottages and good to be visited by the housekeeper Lynn on our arrival too. A cottage that we'd be very happy to stay at again.
By Paul and Alison stayed in March 2017
Perfect house and location, we have stayed in many houses on Mulland this is our new favourite.
Beautifully furnished with every home comfort and a fantastic touring location for all of Mull. We saw otters most days either at the bottom of the garden or on the stretch of loch leading up to the house. We will defiantly book again..
We booked this house for the size and comfort taking 4 teenagers away who all like their own space and it was perfect in every way!!
By Briggs family stayed in February 2017
Beautiful cottage. Stunning views. Can't wait to return someday

Well presented and equipped property. Stunning location and uninterrupted views of Ben More. We had a lovely stay and would have no hesitation in recommending to others.
By G Morris stayed in October 2016
Most enjoyable stay in the Old Church cottage. Beautifully renovated building that made us feel at home the minute we entered through the door.
The house is very warm, so much so in fact that we had to turn the heating off.
The property is very well equipped and in a great location for spotting otters and sea eagles. A wonderful and memorable stay.
By The Wallaces stayed in August 2016
Comfortable, well equipped and warm house in a wonderful location with a friendly helpful owner. Just perfect for the rest that we needed. Keep an eye for the otters that live along the shoreline and pop out to say hello occasionally.
