Bunessan Location for Heron View

Heron View is in a picture postcard setting, overlooking the bay at Bunessan. Looking across the bay with a pair of binoculars is a must for observing the variety birds and marine life all visible from the comfort of the cottage. The sunsets are excellent too. The village itself has the Bunessan Inn, village shop, village hall and Ross of Mull historical centre.

Things to Do

If you like long stretches of sand, coves, rocky outcrops and panoramic views, then you will be spoilt for choice when deciding on where to spend your day. The beautiful localities of Knockvologan, Ardalanish, Uisken, Kintra and Scoor will provide great opportunities for beach combing, walks, photography and bird watching, and are all within 10 miles of the house.

Heading east, there is another beach at Carsaig and a well known walk to the Carsaig Arches (quite a trek, so you will need to be prepared). Wild goats, seals and deer are often seen here and the dramatic cliffs and geology here is superb. Loch Scridain itself (the large sea loch with borders the north of the Ross of Mull) is excellent for marine life, so take your time on the roads and make sure you stop to have a look for passing dolphins, porpoises and otters.

For great food there is the Ninth Wave Restaurant near Fionnphort and the Creel Seafood bar, also at Fionnphort. The Bunessan Inn in Bunessan serves food too. Fionnphort is where boats depart to Iona, Staffa and the Treshnish Isles. Iona has a rich history and the Abbey to visit, as well as gift shops, tearooms and lovely walks. We'd recommend a boat trip during your visit too and there are some great tour operators to choose from.
