The Cottage on the Beach, and its neighbour, occupy probably the best site in Mull for a holiday rental. The view is across the garden, across the beach, across the harbour and to the island of Iona. The beach is surrounded by wonderful pink granite rocks, good for climbing and there are lots of sheep (sometimes in the garden) The cottage is very well equipped and was immaculate when we arrived. The main, en suite, bedroom is perfectly fine, the next bedroom is a bit cramped, plenty of drawers but no wardrobe. Bedroom three is kitted out for four children in two bunk beds - a bit tight. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to work and clothes wash in. The main lounge /diner has beach views and has some very comfortable sofas.There is a Sky TV offering Freeview, which needs a bit of getting used to - especially to a Virgin Media customer. The small fire was useful on one or two cooler evenings and the weather in Mull is, self evidently, not what you would expect if the cottage was in the Med or the Tropics. You can watch the Iona ferry shuttle back and forth and there is a very useful local general store/post office/souvenir shop with excellent croissants when it opens (9.00 or 11 on Sundays) The cottage is well located for plenty of walks and boat trips. It is fitted out with a good wi-fi but there is no land line telephone. The only mobile phone service that works there is 02, but I had vodafone so got no signal. The road journey is along a long single track road, 90 minutes to the Ferry Port for Iona and two hours to Tobermoray. for Kilchoan .Driving etiquette is to observe the plentiful passing places and keep a special watch out on bends and blind summits

When one rings Colin and Jackie ( the owners) for a pre holiday chat - one cannot but be impressed by Colin's bubbling enthusiasm and desire for you to get the most out of your stay at 'The Cottage of Welcome'.
The owners and the cottage itself in its idyllic location ensure that aim is achieved.
We took advantage of the owners' inside knowledge of beaches and coves that exist on your doorstep and the carefully constructed Guide book and local maps which are available at the house . We were a family group of three generations ( age range 62 down to 3 years) and we l equally loved our stay.
In brief - we defy you not to enjoy your stay . The location - the friendly local people - the stunning landscape - the comfortable cottage and Colin and Jackie ensure it is nothing but a hugely successful holiday far away from the madding crowds.

“what a wonderful place”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

House and its views were perfect, beach excellent for dogs to let off steam. Garden enclosed and safe for them, apart from when sheep decided to walk past. Iona was amazing we had a wonderful walk there and the weather was kind to us that day .One of the nicest places we found was lochbuie where there was an honesty shop that sold coffee which was welcomed and the views were amazing. Local pub keel row had good priced meals, were very friendly, great place to relax at night.
House was comfortable very warm and the open fire was fantastic, what was nice was having no phone reception or internet connection.

Cant wait to return. Thankyou

We have just returned from the cottage and immediately booked for next year! could not be a better recommendation. The cottage is excellent well appointed and spotlessly clean yet still pet friendly. Location is second to none with peace and quiet and stunning views over Iona. The sunshine was an added bonus. PERFECT.
