  • "We has a wonderful week on Mull and Sunset Cottage was perfect."

    It was very clean and the beds were really comfortable. Our two dogs loved the garden and my daughter and I enjoyed the fantastic views. A great cottage.

    Loved feeding the birds, so many and different species came.Salen for shopping at the Spar was great and such friendly staff. Our holiday was so wonderful and relaxing we have booked to come again next year. Thanks for your helpful local hints in your file. Sorry about the electrician - I just don't check my emails whilst on holiday! However, thankyou for everything.

  • "Had an amazing stay."

    The cottage was very well equipped, had everything we needed. Location was just what we were looking for, central location for access to the island. The view over the sound of mull was fantastic from the full length window, which the dog loved nearly as much as us. The only disappointments being the WiFi was out which was rectified after a few days and the walk mentioned in the welcome pack up the hill behind the cottage was fenced off with a locked gate. Lots of wildlife sightings from the cottage, white tailed eagle, hen harrier, sparrowhawk and a pine marten on a trail camera left out one night. All my family had an awesome stay, thank you.

  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Sunset Cottage, fabulous views, warm and comfortable, great central location for visiting other parts of the island."

    We had a wee problem initially with the Wi-Fi, but Donald came and fixed it and also gave us lots of useful info about Mull. The road up to the house is pretty rough and our mobile phone signal was weak, but that didn’t spoil our holiday.

  • "The internet is very poor - this should be explained in advance."

    Items that we asked for we not provided and absence of mobile signal at the cottage meant it was not possible to make contact. The double bed is very firm and uncomfortable. Cleaning is patchy.

    The Internet at the cottages is adequate for most day-to-day tasks, I am also trialling a network that is faster than the BT connection I have at present, and unfortunately not all areas are covered by superfast broadband, especially the more rural areas. I explained on the phone before you arrived, where you could make and receive a phone signal from the cottage. The Cot and High chair you requested was provided! I have no record of anything else been asked for. The mattress is good quality, and it also has a two layer thick mattress topper which makes for a comfortable bed. Thank you for your comments.

    The view from the lounge is breath taking and to be there in warmer times must be great in order to make use of the garden furniture - unfortunately we visited in November! We may return in the spring of next year.

    Overall good location for exploring various parts of Mull and not too far to get into Salen or Craignure for a bite to eat if you want to eat out.

  • "The view from the front of the cottage is fantastic."

    Picnic table and seats on the lawn. Everything we needed was there. Bob didn't like the look of the big stainless steel chimney thing leading from the wood burning stove up through the ceiling. He thought it was a bit ugly. We didn't need to use the stove as the underfloor heating was highly efficient - too warm at times but we didn't alter the controls, just opened a door! Plenty of storage in the bedrooms. We hope to return to this property on our favourite island.

About the location


Tobermory 9 miles; Lochdon 12.5 miles; Ardalanish 41.5 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.

Please note: Bookings can only be made with a Saturday check-in and for seven nights.
