I was part of a group staying at the St Columba Hotel. After a long but beautiful journey it was great to be met at the ferry and our luggage taken ahead whilst we enjoyed the short walk to the hotel. We were given a lovely welcome by Dot and the staff and quickly shown to our rooms. This is a real Independent hotel and so do not expect your typical purpose built hotel with no character which so many are these days. The meals were lovely, the bedrooms warm and comfortable and it was great to just sit in the lounge, read a book, enjoy the views back over to Mull and relax. The hotel is in a great position, only a very short walk to the Abbey and with so few cars on the island you can just walk and keep on walking. I shall definitely return.
