Interaction with guestsEntry to the cottage is from 4pm on day of arrival. The keys will be on the inside of the door. Due to Coronavirus we ask that guests leave the windows open on the latch, leave linen and towels in bag provided, wipe down surfaces with the antibacterial spray and kitchen towels provided prior to leaving. Please note we don't have wifi access, the download speed for the cottage is very slow and we thought this would cause more frustration than benefit. Some local businesses provide wifi for their customers. On departure day, can you please leave the cottage by 10am.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Wonderful Mull!
Creich cottage is very spacious, comfortable & well equipped. Location is great for local beaches, shop & boat trips. Enjoyed staying in the middle of the croft & seeing the cows & sheep come close. There were deer on the hill which jumped the fence into the cottage garden at night & left their mark! Also spotted hen harriers around & buzzards, hooded crows & various small birds. Around the island we saw otters, including a close encounter from our kayak. From a boat trip we saw minke whales & dolphins . All in all a wonderful week & I haven't even mentioned the stunning scenery!

A-MAZ-ING!!!
Just had the most amazing week on the Isle of Mull from 28th May to 4th June. This was our first visit to Mull & Creig Cottage was absolutely perfect. As a keen wildlife photographer this was perfect. The cottage is situated on the beautiful Ross of Mull close to Fionnphort. We could have had a week photographing wildlife without moving from the cottage. There were Red Deer coming right up to the cottage in the late evening & birdlife all around. We even managed to photograph a Long Eared Owl (a first for us) which visited two evenings running at around 9pm just as the light was golden. The cottage itself is spacious, well maintained, extremely well equipped & spotlessly clean. The owner Donna was also extremely helpful with some pre trip queries we had. We can't recommend this place highly enough & we plan to return sooner rather than later.

Wonderful!
I couldn't recommend Creich Cottage more highly. It's a lovely, cosy, super-clean, warm and comfortable cottage with incredible moorland views (including red deer) out of every window. And Donna and her sister Catriona were so lovely and helpful. Thanks so much!

Fabulous cottage
Thank you very much, glad we finally got to visit Mull, holiday postponed from last year. The cottage was so well equipped, the photos do not do it justice, everything you could want or need is there. Visited Iona, Staffa, Tobermory, Calgary beach. Found it quite difficult to get booked for the restaurants most were fully booked and also a shame we couldn’t get in to the Abbey on Iona, it was booked out on our 2 visits and not having WiFi, we had to be a bit more creative booking places. We loved the sky at night, it was just stunning. Thank you

Lovely cottage in quiet rural location
This was our second stay at Creich Cottage, having visited previously in 2019. The cottage was spotlessly clean and the owners are letting it for alternate weeks this year so that there is a minimum 72 hours between cleaning and the next holidaymakers moving in. The cottage is well appointed and has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped, which is important just now as there are not many places open to eat out just yet. The views to the rear are fabulous and we spent most evenings looking at the wildlife - the deer come quite close to the cottage and we saw cuckoos and hen harriers regularly. This is the only holiday cottage we've ever stayed in more than once and I would have no hesitation in going back again.

Welcoming, quiet location and well equipped
We have visited the area many times before but this is our first time at Creich Cottage. It's an ideal place for us as a small family looking for a quiet base from which to explore the Ross of Mull and Iona. The cottage was perfect for us in every respect and we look forward to returning again in the future.

Wonderful cottage, perfect for a relaxing break.
Beautiful cottage which was lovely and clean and very well equipped. We were also lucky enough to see the deer when looking out of the cottage windows. Perfect location for visits to Iona and Staffa. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to others.

Lovely remote cottage with stunning views
This is a beautifully appointed cottage on The Ross in a remote part of southern Mull just a couple of miles from Fionnphort. The cottage has everything that you need away from home and is very well looked after, being very clean. The owner's sister lives at the top of the drive and dealt quickly with a problem we had with the heating. The deer visit in the evening and the cottage is only a ten minute walk from the coast. We would happily stay here again.

Peaceful and relaxing
Ideal cottage for getting away from it all and enjoying the peace and quiet. The cottage is very well equipped and spotlessly clean. Lovely area and fabulous views from the window. We saw a variety of birds and wildlife. Thank you for a lovely holiday.

How to get there
To get to Mull there are two crossings, operated by Caledonian MacBrayne, from Lochaline to Fishnish and from Oban to Craignure, best to book the Oban to Craignure ferry as soon as possible, especially when visiting during high season. From Fishnish take the road to Craignure and from there take the A849 to Fionnphort, about 5 miles west of the village of Bunessan is the road leading to the village of Kintra. Take this road, you will come to a corner which is about 90 degrees, after this you will come to a road on the right with a gate, just before a small pine tree wood. Come along this road and Creich is the last house down the hill on a gravel track. Our “What 3 words” location is ///breakfast.jars.actors
