This was our first experience of holidaying on Mull and we couldn’t have enjoyed it more. The cottage was an absolute delight to stay in and there was everything that we needed to have a perfect holiday. The cottage is very spacious and comfortable - if anything the beds were too comfortable! The view over the loch is stunning and we saw our first Golden Eagle when we awoke on our first morning. A family of Otters gave us fabulous displays on several days. Needless to say we have already booked again for 2023. The boat trip to Staffa and Lunga was also an incredible experience.

Our second visit to this fabulous property and it was just as good as the first. So much to see from the windows and good walks on your doorstep. We organized a tour with George Riddell of the Scottish Photography Centre 07958 718922 and had a terrific day. We love to cook and the well equipped kitchen is a delight. Wild venison and smoked fish from the Monday Producers Market in Tobermoray and the village shop has a great variety of stock. The Bellachroy is dog friendly and served draught beer.The one bit of equipment we didn't use was the tv!
By Barbara Slater stayed in April 2022
Perfect in every way. Within 10 minutes of arriving we were watching a wild otter! Underfloor heating we had to turn off! Just google synonyms for cosy...
Beds were comfortable and we slept through D and E (alphabetised storms)
Mull has many memories for us - but we created more and will be back to do same all over again.
This cottage is in the ideal location in an ideal village on an ideal island. Idyllic.

‘If Carlsberg did holiday cottages’..this is what they would create.
Been coming to Mull for 10 years and this property is truly fantastic. Comfortable, spacious, cosy beds and what a location with unspoilt views over the Loch. Had a fishing osprey in front of the house within 20 mins of our arrival.
This was a transfer of dates due to COVID from last April and the wait was truly worth it
By Andy & Liz stayed in September 2021
The house was great! It was immaculately clean and very well equipped with a super comfortable bed in the main bedroom. The location is fantastic...very peaceful and a great base for walks and getting around the island. The pub up the road was a bonus! The stunning view from the back of the house was just wonderful and we were lucky to see otters almost every date. A definite recommend.
By Sarah Hirst stayed in May 2021
Lovely holiday cottage in a fantastic setting.
The holiday cottage was bright, warm, and had everything you need. The views from all windows were amazing, saw Otters most days in the Loch. Will def visit again.
Just one note, the stairs are tiled so extra care is needed , particularly for children or those unstable on their feet.
By Lynne stayed in May 2021
Excellent cottage. Clean, warm, very well appointed and comfortable. Wonderful views and well situated for the pub, shops and visiting the whole island, particularly the Northern half. We would stay there again.
By Perric Crellin stayed in November 2020
Fantastic holiday cottage ! If only all properties had this much thoughtful attention to providing guests with everything they could want.. We had the most amazing holiday. Thank you !
By Sally stayed in August 2020
Five adults stayed and we all agreed it was one of the best properties we'd had in Scotland. Couldn't fault it. Everything worked well and we had no problems. Heating system was very effective...turned it off a couple of nights!
Despite the patchy weather (it was February!), we loved the open views from the house, so good even if it was raining. Great location...handy for the village and friendly local pub.
Would certainly recommend this property and plan to return to Mull in the future.
By Richard Salvin stayed in February 2020
This is the second time I have stayed at this property! The house is very well equipped and has a lovely view out over the loch. There are three bedrooms each with ensuite which is very helpful. Bedrooms are a great size. Kitchen is well equipped, and downstairs has underfloor heating! I would happily go back to this property again
By Chris Gilbane stayed in February 2020
Very good cottage well situated overlooking Loch Cuin. Very well equipped & comfortable.Excellent for us as we could spend a couple of hours per day bird & wildfire watching.Would definitely recommend this cottage to all.
By john steatham stayed in November 2019
An absolutely stunning property with stunning views by Loch Cuin. We saw otters from the house on the the Loch on two occasions and red deer on the hillsides opposite. Herons and various birdlife. We also saw when travelling on the Island red deer, numerous golden eagles, sea eagles and a variety of other bird life. Calgary beach is indeed the gem of the beaches with a lovely walk out to the headland. We were lucky to have good weather, blue skies and sunny most days 11-13o apart from rain from 3.00pm on one day. The Bellachroy pub in Dervaig served excellent meals, local shop friendly
By June Bateman stayed in September 2019
The cottage had everything we needed and was was spotlessly clean on arrival. We had a fantastic two weeks exploring Mull and nearby islands. Wildlife was plentiful - otter, eagles, hen harrier, hedgehog, rabbits and red deer from the cottage and so much more as we explored the island. Amazing sunsets, a super village shop and friendly local pub. It was our home rather than a holiday let - we didn’t want to leave.
By Helen stayed in August 2019
Beautiful holiday home with excellent facilities. The house was so warm and well equipped with everything you need to make your holiday comfortable. The views are absolutely stunning and we miss them already, it’s such a beautiful, tranquil place to sit and watch the Loch. There are some wonderful walks, and as others have already said the local shop is very useful. We would also like to thank Catherine for her advice and kindness.
By Susan and Ian and Bobby dog stayed in August 2019
Fantastic property which has everything you could ask for, a true home from home. Stunning location, sadly didn’t see the elusive otter but saw plenty wildlife. Would certainly book again. Mull is a stunning island with plenty to see and do. Great food at the Bellachroy hotel if you fancy eating out, get in line for the artisan bakery as well as their baked goods sell out fast.
By Brian aitchison stayed in July 2019
This is an amazing property. The views from the large windows over the sea loch can keep you entertained all day - but it is also an excellent location for walking. We had some walks in the rain and some in the sun (plus a mixture). An excellent walk from the cottage to Quinish point with lots of seals (great for picnic) and an ice cream from the Shop/PO at Dervaig (which is well stocked). Very large telly in the cottage with excellent sound - if you can drag yourself away from the views. Very comfy and spacious place (there were 6 adults and 1 dog in our party).
By Diane stayed in June 2019
Having stayed at numerous dog friendly cottages throughout the Highlands I can safely say this is the best we have been to. Everything you would expect in a holiday let (except perhaps a bbq). The garden is totally enclosed and safe. With the pub and shop within easy walking distance and no through road to the cottage this makes an ideal getaway place to enjoy your stay. We were lucky enough to get 7 days of blistering sunshine which made the whole stay even better. Very highly recommended.
By David stayed in May 2019
Great location, comfortable warm and well equipped for outdoor activities. The locals were very friendly, excellent pub nearby and stunning walks. We did not need a telly, just watched the wildlife out the windows. Booking and domestics were seamless.
By Graeme Sutherland stayed in April 2019
Despite the weather we had a lovely stay. Out every day exploring and walking. This is a lovely well equiped house. Great views a haven for birdwatchers. We even managed to adopt a dog for our walk out to the point. We will return. Thank you Iain the telly fixer.
By David McDonald stayed in March 2019
Superb place to stay ... quiet but near the village, great walks and bike rides literally from the door. House is great, well equipped and very easy to stay in.
By Andrew Steele stayed in January 2019
A lovely house in an amazing location! Dervaig is a quaint little village with everything you need at the PO store. The drive in on the B8073 is quite an adventure. Good area for hiking. The hike out to the Kilmore Standing Stones (in the rain, of course) was scenic.
Isle of Mull Cottages is a top notch property management company.
By Cristine Eastin stayed in September 2018
We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful, spacious, and very clean house with lovely views of the loch and surrounding countryside. It was an easy walk to the grocery store and local pub in Dervaig. The beds were of excellent quality and the reclining sofas very comfortable. We also enjoyed day trips to Calgary, Duart Castle, and Isle of Iona. More detailed and accurate instructions for heating, television, and oven operation would have been appreciated. We highly recommend this accommodation.
By Jane and Ray stayed in September 2018
This is a fabulous holiday home. Warm, beautifully decorated and furnished, well equipped, and the binoculars were great!! spotted otters and an eagle plus lots of other birds with these! Wonderful location, would not hesitate to stay here again ????
By Jane and Callum stayed in September 2018
Great house, amazing everchanging views of the loch, incredible peace and quiet, no wonder you can't get a booking next summer! We had a lovely holiday on Mull and house is highly recommended as clean, well equipped and welcoming. We hope to return very soon. Thank you.
By Sally Moreton stayed in August 2018
We had an amazing time in a fabulous house. Every room having an en-suite was brillant. House was clean bright welcoming and amazing views and watching eagles from the garden was amazing as well as all the other wildlife. Couldn't recommend this property enough. We also used the local bus which was on time and the driver was fab!
By Lesley Goodwin stayed in August 2018
A wonderful house in an idyllic setting & spotlessly clean. Very well equipped & also has full sky package. The views were amazing, perfect for bird watching. Unfortunately no otter sightings. Location is perfect, Dervaig village has a pub & well stocked shop plus Dervaig Bakery (visit their facebook page to find out when they are baking). Calgary beach is only 15 mins away & there is a great cafe/gallery there. One of the best meals we had was at Am Birlinn restaurant. Would highly recommend this accommodation!
By Jacqui Orton stayed in June 2018
Beautiful, well equipped house in a gorgeous location. You couldn't ask for better views from all the windows. Our son loved seeing the new born lambs at the end of the garden. Lots of bird watching; oyster catcher, curlew, heron as well as an eagle family and deer. Really good local shop in Dervaig, sadly we never made it to the artisan bakers.
The house was spotless upon arrival, plenty of room for all. Lots of books, games and DVDs but nothing for toddlers, but plenty of outdoor activities to keep him occupied. We loved Calgary beach, and the sculpture trail. Aros Park was great too. Lovely sunny visit to Iona on the last day rounded off the holiday nicely.
By Carol Davis-Mann stayed in April 2018
We had a most fantastic time in this house with our friends. The place was spotless and warm on our arrival, and the views were second to none! Waking up to see the Loch outside our bedroom window every morning was so lovely. We saw many different birds from the windows, with a fly by from a white tailed eagle. There’re are plenty of walks from the house without the need to use the car, but if you venture out, you will be spoilt for choice of places to go. The highlight of our week was our trip to Lunga to see the Puffins and Fingals cave.
By Sue and mike stayed in April 2018
What a cracker! Probably the best holiday let we have ever had. Warm, well equipped and with a view I would like to wake up to every day. Dervaig is a great base to see the island (this was our third visit). The village shop is really well stocked and the Artisan Bakery put inches on my waistline! Dervaig Artisan Bakery - find them on Facebook and you can find out when a bake is ready. Bird sightings were wonderful. Goldies, white tails, hen harrier and so many different ducks. Sadly no otters this time despite Torr a Mhannich having a resident family!
By Barbara Slater stayed in March 2018
A gorgeous house with a stunning view. Highly recommend.
By Lisa Wilson stayed in March 2018
This is probably the best cottage we have stayed in having been to mull a few times.
Everything you need is here ,so well appointed through out.
The mattress in master bedroom is sublime.
The house is spotless on arrival,the house is roasty toasty on arrival.
The underfloor heating on ground floor does its job fantastically.
The wood burner is massive and pumps out plenty heat.
The showers are very powerful and plentiful hot water.
Full sky package on tv and very good wifi considering its remoteness.
While there from the window we saw otters,sea eagles and deer.
The house is 4 miles from Calgary beach which we visited daily to tire out the dogs,and only 8 miles from Tobermory.
There is an honesty egg box at bottom of drive £1:50 1/2 doz of probably the yellowist best free range eggs you will ever taste.
This is a cottage you will not e dissapointed in and will want to return to time and time again( try and book it you will be lucky to get a week in 2018)
This alone speaks for itself
By Steven John Morrison stayed in February 2018
Superb house in a great location, especially when the weather is a bit 'iffy'. Dervaig gives you the safety of a great local shop, which yo can easily live out of. The house is in a great position with walks literally 'straight from the door'.
By Andrew Steele stayed in January 2018
Wow what a fantastic holiday home in a beautiful location. The house is extremely well equipped and comfortable. The underfloor heating made the house really cosy. The views from every window are just lovely. It was a perfect place to stay.
We really enjoyed exploring Mull and found it a peaceful and beautiful island. We saw Eagles, Deer, Otters and all kinds of sea birds. We can't wait to visit again.
By The Cheetham Family stayed in January 2018
This place was an absolute treat. The house is in an amazing setting with beautiful views, the snow made it for an even more idyllic scenery. The host was lovely and very helpful. The property itself is well stocked, especially if you enjoy cooking, it was also comfortable, clean and very cosy. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we've ever had.
By Stef & Sam stayed in December 2017
Wonderful cosy house with amazing views and total tranquility. Saw otter and seal from the house and lots more on our travels. House is really well equipped with a great local shop and pub just a short walk away. Would love to come back.
By Sam and Gary Price stayed in November 2017
A lovely well appointed cottage in a great location,has a well stocked local shop within a short walk,and the local pub is even closer.Great views from the cottage which is perfectly placed to explore Mull in all its splendour.
By David and Katie stayed in October 2017
Great location with an amazing view over Loch Cuin. Comfortable und clean accomondation. Good fishing at Loch Cuin. Beautiful walks in the area. Short distance to the store and pub. Perfect holidays.
By Sabine and Martin , Germany stayed in September 2017
Fabulous comfy house with amazing views of Loch Cuin. We spotted otters most days from the comfort of the house and eagles nesting opposite, animals and nature everywhere you looked. The house is spacious and spotless and have everything you could need, also a great little pub only a 5 min walk away. Perfect, we will def be back.
By The Nickys stayed in June 2017
Fabulous cottage in a great location. We had a lovely stay here even if the weather was a little cold. Enjoyed seeing otters from the cottage and sea eagles on the other side of the loch. Accommodation was clean, comfortable and cosy. Would definitely recommend!
By Shaton stayed in April 2017
Beautiful home, Everything we needed for a relaxing weeks stay. Super area, and on a working farm - With Donkeys, Ducks and Chickens. Free Range Eggs - Lovely!! As said in Other Reviews, Best place we've stayed in on Mull.
By Sugden's stayed in April 2017
Great location and wonderful views across the loch - we greatly enjoyed seeing otters on our first morning. The house is generally very well equipped and offers a bright and spacious base for exploring. The lambs and donkeys (baby So cute!) were a bonus.
By Alan and Helen Frost stayed in April 2017
Excellent base to discover Isle of Mull. House was well equipped, cosy and very comfortable, had a most enjoyable stay.
By Jan O'Hare stayed in February 2017
Fantastic property in a great area of North Mull. Very comfortable and well equipped - a great resting place after a day's exploration. Loads to see in the immediate and wider area. Ulva is well worth a visit - we saw a basking shark, countless deer, seals, eagles to name but a few.
By Matt & Caroline stayed in October 2016
Fabulous house in a fabulous location with ever changing views. Probably the best self catering accomodation we have ever stayed in.
By Andy & Ali stayed in September 2016
Torr a Mhannich is the best self catering property we have ever stayed in. The property is fantastic, the facilities excellent and the views and wildlife just amazing. Dervaig is a good place to explore North Mull and get away from it all. Local pub and restaurant were very good for food.
By Paul and Kerri stayed in August 2016
Excellent accomodation very well equipped, in good location with superb views. Would highly recommend.
By Christine Barnes stayed in April 2016
We rarely self-cater but if all properties were as good as Torr a Mhannich we would certainly do so more often.
By Peter and Ann stayed in September 2015
Fantastic holiday home in a beautiful setting. Plenty of wildlife right on the doorstep. Great location for exploring - Calgary Bay and Tobermory being favourites with us. We also used Lochbuie Larder to take the stress out of cooking too! Look forward to returning for another holiday soon.
