  • "We had a marvellous christmas break at Carsaig."

    Amy and Sam were wonderful hosts and we had everything we needed to make it special- including the Christmas tree. Fortunately the power outages due to the storm were minimal and our experience was not marred by this. A breathtaking setting for multigenerational break, stags in the garden, eagles overhead, forever memories, thankyou.

  • "Suberb family holiday in amazing accommodation."

    Such a wonderful peaceful and relaxing location. Three generations of our family loved every minute and didn’t want to leave. Can’t recommend highly enough.

  • "Carsaig House is very well-equipped and has room for all."

    A family can eat in the kitchen or the large dining room. The location is remote, so unless you like a lot of driving it's best to make your own amusements at Carsaig. There is plenty space for outdoor activities. There is a black sand beach right in front of the house.

  • "Amazing stay all round."

    Location is awesome with own gardens for games and beach within two minute walk as well as stunning views. House is is great mix of modern comforts with historic decoration in keeping with the island and is a fantastic space for groups. Will definitely book again.

  • "Great property and fantastic location."

    Amy and Sam were great hosts and were very helpful with local recommendations. The house is amazing and has everything you would need. We had a party of 11 and had more than enough space. Rooms are well presented and comfortable. Location is great for walks along the beach with plenty of local wildlife. We would highly recommend a stay at Carsaig House if you want somewhere to relax and enjoy all Mull has to offer.

    Everything you need for an awesome holiday. Very comfortable. Fires on the beach and games room are highlights. Kitchen exceptionally well equipped (although another freezer would be handy). Walks from the house have amazing views. Sad to leave, we loved this place.

  • "Lovely house and a good size for 15 of us in three generations and very comfortable."

    Amy and Sam couldn't have been more helpful: nothing was too much trouble. Could do with more outdoor furniture: only room for 8 round the table. Somewhere to stand BBQs would be nice instead of having to use them on the ground.

    The house feels like a home even though it is so filled with history. The house is wonderful and all my guests were super impressed.

  • "Stayed here in May, with three generations, to celebrate my 60th birthday."

    The accommodation was wonderful, masses of space, comfortable rooms, hot water endless. Blown away by the garden, the views and location ...but not physically by the weather, which was actually perfect for the week. Do bring your midge spray though, and remember to close the windows if the lights are on! James and Sandra helped with every little enquiry ...thanks ...and I would recommend picking some dishes up from the Lochbuie Larder, although the huge, well-equipped kitchen in the house makes cooking a pleasure. Thanks - a very special trip.

  • "My family and I have just returned from a fabulous holiday in Carsaig House on the wonderful island of Mull to celebrate my wife's 70th birthday."

    Carsaig House was absolutely beautiful and an excellent location for our celebration. It would be appreciated if you could pass on our thanks to the owners for allowing us to use their property and it would be apprecated if you could also pass on to the owners how helpful the housekeepers, Sam and Amy were in making the holiday so special. Anything we needed from them was provided quickly and professionally and they were such a friendly couple for whom nothing was too much trouble. This included leaving a bouquet flowers and a birthday card for my wife which was a lovely touch and much appreciated. All my family thoroughly enjoyed the holiday and declared it "the best holiday ever", with Carsaig House being the star of the show.

  • "Carsaig House was wonderful and we had good weather the whole week."

    We (parents) were here with three teenage children and 4 seniors (grand-parents and great-aunt and great uncle). The location is simply breath-taking. The kitchen is outstanding which is excellent given the extent to which we are all 'foodies'. Either the owner or previous tenants had left plenty of provisions (like flour, sugar, spices, herbs and baking soda), which was very much appreciated. There was an intermittent mobile signal from the house (20% of the time), so I was glad to have a land-line which worked. We would definitely recommend Carsaig House as a fabulous family retreat and you can depend on the house feeling very much like a 'home'.

The property

Bunessan 13 miles.

Enjoying a breath-taking setting near Pennyghael on the picturesque Isle of Mull is the country house, Carsaig House.

The ultimate destination for large family get-togethers or friendly gatherings, Carsaig House is truly one of a kind.

Dating back to the mid-19th century, Carsaig House oozes elegance and style from every fibre of its beautiful being and traditional features abound throughout the property.

The overwhelming grandeur of the property is established from the get-go and visitors are greeted by original features at every turn.

The warm and welcoming sitting room has plenty of snug sofas, picture windows showcasing the views and an open fire, all adding up to create at truly inviting space.

The more formal drawing room is a great entertaining space and also has an open fire.

The splendid farmhouse kitchen boasts a traditional Aga and an additional oven giving visitors the best of both worlds – an atmospheric and traditional style kitchen but with a fantastic selection of mod cons, the perfect area for cooking up a storm and creating some fantastic dishes.

You can sit in the relaxed and informal setting of the kitchen itself or step into the more formal dining room perfect for long, languid dinner parties.

Think Downton Abbey with a Scottish burr.

For the younger ones in the party they may want to take themselves off to chill out and enjoy a game of table football while the adults take their time over dinner.

Everyone is catered for at Carsaig House!

You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to picking a bedroom, but all of them offer a sanctuary to retire to after a long day of exploring and all boast views of either sea or gardens.

Throwing open the doors to Carsaig House and you are greeted by expansive, well-maintained gardens which are just asking to be explored.

Enjoy spending time in this wonderful walled garden breathing in the refreshing Scottish air and taking in the beautiful sea views.

Tempting as it is to stay at home there is so much to see and do right on the doorstep so exploring is a must.

The beach is a short walk from the house and there are a number of popular hill and coastal walks close by.

Less than half an hour’s drive is the idyllic Isle of Iona and Ross of Mull with kayaking a favourite pastime in this area.

A day trip well worth doing is taking a drive and a ferry over to the bustling town of Oban and a short drive away in the car but following an extremely scenic route along the coast is Tobermory!

A visit to Carsaig House is quite simply unforgettable so make sure it’s on your bucket list.

The island can be reached by ferry from Oban to Craignure, Lochaline to Fishnish or Kilchoan to Tobermory.
