    • “Beautiful cosy retreat with a View to die for”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “We have just returned from a weeks holiday here and had an amazing time, I didn't want to come home ... The cottage is situated on top of a hill surrounded by sheep, chickens and horses who visited us by our garden fence .. From the front the cottage overlooks the sound of mull and the back there are mountains , beautiful waterfalls and snow capped mountains .. The cottage had everything we needed and more amenities wise and had all the "at home " touches and utensils... It's situated near the ferry terminal, near the local spar and the local pub the Craignure Inn has a welcoming atmosphere and serves amazing home cooked meals. The wild life we saw was what made it for us, we regularly saw rabbits on the mountains, deer, sea birds and regularly had golden eagles and white tailed sea eagles soaring above the cottage... We will definitely be returning and would recommend this cottage to anyone ..”

    • “My family and I (3adults, a 7month baby and our cockapoo) had a weeks holiday in this lovely cottage on the Isle of Mull in Feb 2013, we had the best week of weather of the year it seems so got lucky there! It’s located off the road and up the hill at the side of the road overlooking a little bay and is very lovely indeed. The cottage itself is small but has everything you need, even and expresso machine should it take your fancy. The kitchen is fully stocked to cook meals and there is a washer and drier to keep on top of clothes from all the walking available on the island. The underfloor heating is fantastic and keeps the cottage emmensly warm and toastie, almost too warm sometimes! (Though we were the only cottage occupied so might be why), couple that with the log fire and you’ll never go cold in this place! For those who have dogs I don’t know that you will get them off the kitchen floor (where the underfloor heating is strongest), our dog would just lie there till bed time! The garden is all fenced in with a 3ft high fence and is plenty big enough for dogs to run about in the evenings if you haven’t managed to tire them out during the day. There is a vet on the island as well just towards to Craignure but luckily we didn't have to use them. There is a large storage area between the cottages where you can store outdoor equipment (canoe’s etc) and there was plenty of space for us to store our roof box while we were going around the island. It also has a washing line and makes a good drying area, even if it isn’t sunny the breeze will sharp dry anything out!! Craignure where you get off the ferry from Oban is the closest town with a shop but a little further up the road there is Salen (left from the drive) and is better for the shop, more choice in food and also lots of souvenirs. If you choose this cottage I am sure you will have a lovely time.”

    • “A very comfortable cottage in the perfect location.”

    • “Sunset Cottage was ideal for us. It suited my 89 year old Dad as it is all on the level and was always cosy with the under floor heating. We all enjoyed the views from the picture window looking out over the Sound of Mull. The dogs enjoyed it too - plenty of lovely walks close by. The cottage had all the facilities you could possibly want for a relaxing break. It was spotless, in spite of being dog friendly. The wood burner was a treat one rather cold evening. Perhaps one addition could be put in to the sitting room. My dad found it rather difficult to heave himself up out of the very comfortable but low sofas and chairs. There were the upright dining chairs but they were not comfortable for sitting watching T.V. A more upright easy chair would have made it absolutely perfect!!”

    • “Neglect creeping in to an otherwise excellent cottage”
    • tripadvisor rating
    • “The design, the position and the equipment level, apart from the sparse contents of the kitchen cupboards, could not have been better. The underfloor heating system was powerful, but its controls rather primitive. Included in the price was an unlimited supply of free logs for the excellent woodburner. However, there were several very loose fittings in the bathroom and the ensuite and some missing lightbulbs. The covered storage area outside was littered with old or broken fridges, and water running down the hillside had washed out the steep approach track on two sharp bends, making negotiation quite tricky. We would have appreciated a quick courtesy call during our stay, but none was forthcoming. All these were basically minor faults, easily rectified with the exception of the track, but it felt like the beginnings of neglect. A cottage such as this was worthy of better.”

    • “We were very lucky with the weather. The location of the cottage is fantastic with its view over the Sound of Mull. There is so much to see and do on Mull both outdoors and indoors. Also there are lots of very good places to eat.”

    • “Lovely enclosed garden with superb views.”

    • “Lovely quiet location, and nice and warm. Plenty of extra wood if needed, had good weather so not required.”

    Mrs Bunn, Stockton-on-Tees, March 2014

    • “Cottage is close to both the ferry terminal and local amenities, a short drive from Tobermory. The under floor heating was very good and at no time was the cottage cold, plus there is a wood burner if the temperature really drops. The island is beautiful and we were blessed with the weather for the week we stayed.”

About the location


Tobermory 9 miles.

On the Isle of Mull, the picturesque village of Salen is halfway between the main ferry terminal of Craignure and the island's capital, Tobermory. Salen boasts two hotels, an Italian restaurant and a coffee shop and hosts an agricultural show each summer. In and around Salen you can enjoy mountain biking, pony trekking, walking and bird watching. Salen is the ideal base for exploring this inner Hebridean island, whose highlights include the dramatic scenery of the Gribun rocks on the west coast, the delightful expanse of Calgary Bay and its beach and, of course, Tobermory, most recently used as the setting for the popular BBC children's series 'Balamory'. Tobermory is the main town on the island with a choice of restaurants and shops, a whisky distillery and chocolate factory - all well worth a visit.
