Things to Do
Cnoc Deaghuinn is situated at Penmore, with the village of Dervaig just a couple of miles east and the beautiful Calgary Bay to the west. This is a great choice if you want privacy, a relatively remote setting and easy access to the sea. Walking from the door, it is a mile to the pier at Croig. From here there you can explore the coastline in a couple of directions and there are some fantastic sandy bays, including Port na Ba, which can only be reached on foot from this area and is therefore often deserted. There aren’t many places in the world where you can have such an idyllic beach to yourself!
There are a couple of restaurants in this area too – Am Birlinn is within walking distance and is open for evening meals and lunches during the holiday season (April through to October). Ballygown is another great option on the west coast, a little further afield, and there is The Bellachroy in Dervaig, which also has a village shop and post office. Tobermory is a 25-minute drive from the house and Ulva Ferry is a 35-minute drive south, where boats depart to the Treshnish Isles, Staffa and the island of Ulva.
As with all areas of Mull, there are great wildlife watching opportunities here too. If you want some help in spotting sea eagles and otters, you can always book a wildlife tour with one of the local guides, or simply pack a pair of binoculars and get out and about in the hills and by the coast to give yourself a good chance of seeing the deer, marine animals and other birds here too.
