  • A unique cottage, full of character. A fantastic place to stay.

    "We all loved Creagard and it's tiny frogs! The Atlantic visitor center is strongly recommended, particularly if you need a fresh coffee in the morning and if there is live music on in the evening. We were lucky enough to get tickets for a folk band in the center (though I'm sure the organisers still think we didn't pay for our ticket - organisation is not a strong point there!). Make sure you give notice is you want the langoustines or scallops as they are lovely and they do run out. I'd also recommend Mrs. McQueen for some prawns. The best I've ever tasted but be prepared as they are alive!! The cottage is really interesting. Lots to see, lots to take in. We loved the main room with the large picture over the wood burner and the inset stained glass panels. I taught my daughter how to play chess in front of a lovely fire. The sun deck gives a great view of the stars on a clear night - perfect with a glass of wine! The garden is great for a barbeque and very private and my 14 year old son made the chart room his own bolt hole for the week. The bedrooms were comfortable and we were well looked after by Flo who provided some milk for us on arrival (Luing shop is not open on a Sunday - though well worth a visit when it is open). The walk to the trig point provides amazing views of the island and I'd recommend a visit to the iron age hill fort (I only found 1, but Cully says there are 2), and a walk down to the beach provides a great view of Mull and the surrounding islands. The rib ride from Easdale is a great way to see the islands and whilst there you must visit the arts and crafts center. You can't miss it and the paintings by C.John Taylor entertained us so much we went back twice. The best fish and chips we have ever tasted in Oban - look out for the chip shop recommended by Rick Stein. The 5 trip ticket on the ferry from Cuan cost £50 for the 5 of us (plus the car) and is a must. Look out for seals while you cross! Cully is very helpful and will answer any questions promptly. Overall a week we will never forget and a great introduction to the Hebrides. Strongly recommended. Thanks Cully."

  • Lovely quiet location with great views and walks on its doorstep

    "My wife and myself stayed for a week with my 18 year old son and 15 year old daughter. The house was just fine with everything you would need for a week away. The conservatory became a our favourite location for breakfast and for a glass of wine in the evening watching the sun set over the Sound of Mull! As per the previous advice, Fort William is a good hours drive away, however, the local shop had a good selection of food to allow you to cook at home. We tried both the Lochaline Hotel and the Whitehouse. The Hotel was good and reasonably priced whilst the Whitehouse was a special treat - food was great but expect to pay £50 per head for 3 courses and drinks. My only regret was that we did not find the Ardonishire Estate just outside Lochaline until Thursday. I would recommend visiting the shop and chatting to the lady there. She is very knowledgable about local walks and places to visit. We ended up on a walk to the castle on the headland. The shop also has a great range of local food and local meat from the estate which were all reasonably priced. I would recommend this house for anyone who wants a place away from loads of crowds but with great views and scenery on their doorstep."

  • Excellent Family Home

    "Three families from Italy, USA and UK shared this house for 1 week. We loved it! Great location (walking distance to town), large and spacious, nice playground for kids, and nice furnishings. Highly recommend for families, couples, etc. Master bedroom was large with large bath (shower and big tub). 1 bedroom in back connects to playroom with private bath which was very useful for 1 family to share (parents in bedroom and then used fold out beds for kids! We were able to close this area off for a private suite for a family. 2 large living rooms downstairs with TV and lot seating area. Large eat-in-kitchen. Laundry. Excellent house and highly recommend."

  • It was Bon-awesome!

    "We've known this beautiful area for years and we've seen the building fall into disrepair and then be renovated into the stunning home that it is today. The house is gorgeous and has a huge "wow" factor and yet still feels cosy and homely. It is literally a stones throw from the loch and the highlight of the week was watching a mother otter with her two kits fishing and playing directly in front of the house - amazing! The huge living space works very well for a large group (there were ten in our party) because there are four different living areas and you can find your own bit of "chill out time" if you want it. Conversely, if you all want to be together, the rooms are set up so that you can do that too. The decor is luxurious and there are some beautiful paintings and personal effects which add to the character of the house and make it feel a very loved home. The views are breathtaking and the location is extremely peaceful. There is literally no noise except the sounds of the birds in the trees (slightly eerie if you're outside at night but the lights shining from houses across the loch stop you feeling too isolated). We had a six and seven year old with us and they loved fishing from the rocks infront of the house. We caught Rock Cod, Coley, Gurnard and lots of crabs! We took the children to the nearby Sea Life Centre (pay once and you can go as many times as you want for a full week) and to the Cruachan Power Station which was also well worth a visit. We were blessed with lovely weather all week to enjoy the breathtaking autumn colours so we were very content to make the most of the fishing and walking which could be done from the doorstep. Tigh na Breac is a gorgeous house in a stunning place. We had a fabulous holiday and we hope to return again soon."
