“Idylic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2010

This is our third visit to the Benmore Estate, Knock,Isle of Mull. We already have a further week booked to return this autumn. The location is beautiful, the area suitably away from the busy (if Mull roads get busy) roads. Wildlife abounds especially deer and birds. Within half an hour of arrival we had a Sea Eagle soaring above the cottage's.
The cottages are Well equipped with everything that you will ever need. Cleaned before arrival everything was perfect down the biscuits waiting to be eaten.
The locals especially the estate staff are lovely, they are often very busy and have little time to spare but never the less we found them approachable and having lived in the area for some time knowledgeable about the area.
Deer visit the cottages nightly along with the early morning 'Baa' from the local sheep helping themselves to the garden grass make it special.
I would highly recommend the area and especially the cottages to all. it is quiet and out of the way and for those wanting a hectic holiday i would suggest Blackpool. If you want a holiday then this is the place. Just a shame it is so very far away.

Dhiseig cottage is a beatiful cottage on the slopes of Benmore. It has the potential to be a top quality holiday destination but the service from the letting agents is poor. They don't tell you that the water needs to be boiled before you can drink it so take care if you have young children. Neither do they tell you about the fact that the cottage is split into two, one half being inhabited by a couple of estate staff who make the paying guests feel most unwelcome. If you're thinking about fishing on the Estate Loch check whether the bigger house (Knock Lodge) has been let first. Watch out!
