Property Description

Craig Barn Lodge and Cottage are situated in an outstanding and beautiful area, affording stunning views over the beautiful and tranquil Loch Uisg. In a remote setting, surrounded by wooded glens and rugged mountain peaks, these spacious and very comfortable properties stand against the magnificent backdrop of Bheinn Creach. The cottage, a converted steading, has its own secluded garden with a meandering stream and delightful pond, whilst the former hunting lodge has 2 acres of walled gardens and natural grounds which reach down to the shore of the loch, of which each property has fabulous views. The nearest beach is only 2½ miles away at Laggan Sands. Ideal for families holidaying together these properties are well equipped for modern living and enjoy a timeless atmosphere. The abundance of natural wildlife and spectacular scenery makes Mull a paradise for the discerning visitor with its outstanding landscapes attracting walkers, artists, photographers, divers, golfers, sailors, cyclists, anglers and bird watchers. Around the island minke whales, red deer, dolphins, basking sharks, porpoise and otters can all be seen in their natural habitat, as well as golden and sea eagles and many other bird species. Boat trips can be taken to Iona where guests can visit the famous abbey, or to the isle of Staffa with the extraordinary Fingal’s Cave. The colourfully painted town of Tobermory (40 miles) is definitely worth a visit and Torosay Castle and Gardens make a great day out. There are two 9-hole golf courses on the island. These properties provide a truly “get away from it all” holiday experience and are perfect for larger families or small groups. Shop/P.O. and pub 11 miles.

Customer Comments

Selected comment(s) from customers who have enjoyed staying at this property:
  1. Craig Ben Cottage is the perfect holiday base on Mull. Beautifully decorated, clean, extremely comfortable and set in a stunning landscape. The house really feels like a home from home - every appliance and gadget imaginable is in the kitchen and in each bedroom. The towels are from the White Company and the bedding is luxury feather down pillows and duvets. Every window has a breath-taking scene. This was our second visit to the house - our third to Mull - and we loved every aspect of the house and mull. Wildlife is just on the doorstep and there are many many walks you can take straight from the front door. We love Mull dearly - and we love this house. We feel very privileged every time we stay here. March 2012.
  2. Lovely property in a great location. Oct 2011.
  3. Lovely cottage for kids and adults. Very comfortable. Good location. April 2011.
  4. Cottage was cosy and very comfortable. Brilliant for older children and teenagers as they had their own space in the annex. The number of books and boardgames available made for very enjoyable evenings. Oct 2010.
  5. A very comfortable property, a real home from home. Oct 2010.

  12. Great location as a base for touring the island - almost equidistant (time-wise) from Iona and Tobermory. Wildlife all around the cottage so didn’t really need to leave the area. May 2009.
