Things to Do
Peaceful, private and picturesque, the secluded valley setting of Glen Bellart will appeal to those wanting to escape it all. Breathe in the fresh air, soak up the lush views and spend your days walking through woodland, past lochs and along some of the island’s best beaches… total bliss.
Glen Bellart is a peaceful valley with only a scattering of houses along the road, which winds its way from Aros to Dervaig. There are plenty of opportunities for walks from the house onto open countryside. The north of Mull has lots of woodland walks that have been developed by the Forestry Commission, which are within easy reach of Achnacraig. The coastal areas around Dervaig, Croig and Calgary are exceptionally beautiful, with some excellent stretches of coast to explore.
Guests can visit the local heritage centre at The Old Byre with its cafe and visitor centre and enjoy the woodland walks, gallery and tea room at Calgary. Tobermory isn't too far away, either, with boat trips and wildlife tours heading out from the harbour as well as the arts centre, theatre, shops and eateries to visit.
