Staffa House Guestbook
'After a very warm welcome I enjoyed five days on Mull. You gave me very special tips and so I had a wonderful holiday. The breakfast was fantastic and in the bed I slept as a baby. Thank you so much for your great hospitality.'
Horst, Germany – October 2015
'Loved the peace after the hurly-burly of toddlers at Fidden. Endless skylarks, fewer lapwings than I remember. I love the muted colour palette at Staffa House, the presence of art and the absence of knick-knacks. Keep composting!'
