What a lovely find for four nights/days in Mull. Richard and Maggie are actually sharing their home and all their private possessions with you when you stay here. Home from home plus more.
Accommodation is on the ground floor with either Ensuite or private bathrooms. A lovely layout and well furnished. Our bed was a "tester" with lovely brass fittings. Wardrobe,sitting spaces and dressing table completed the feeling of being in a private house and not a commercial enterprise.
Upstairs was a lovely lounge just like home with roaring log fire. On arrival we would find Richard leaning on his balcony and offering "tea or coffee in five minutes?" This was in the lounge and the fire lit. Well stocked bookshelves and furnishings completed the homely feeling.
Breakfasts were ordered the evening before from a 'tick list' and thus when we came down (went up to the panelled dining room to be accurate) the places were set and our requirements for the first course, juice/cereal etc., ready and waiting. Beverages and toast rapidly followed and then out main breakfast as ordered. Served on a Salver and not plated that left us to take what we wished and just what we could handle. Dilemma! Do we clear the plate as a courtesy and imply we had room for more or do we leave a bit to go to waste and thus imply portions were more than adequate? I think after four mornings Richard had got the measure of our appetite as he was extremely attentive to such details.
The property is an old farm and I think we were in the granary area. You could never tell.
Situated around five miles from the 'main' road from Craignure to Bunessan alongside Loch Spieve there was plenty of wildlife to enjoy in splendid scenery. We saw Otters in the loch and many sea birds and waders on the shore.
