Our four individually decorated and furnished guest bedrooms are spacious, uncluttered, clean and warm with a focus on super-comfy beds and a good night’s sleep. We use feather and down 10.5 tog quilts and pillows, sustainably sourced bed-linen, towels and organic toiletries from the Highland Soap Company. In each room you will find an information pack, tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and hot-water bottle for chilly nights.
Upstairs, Iona is our premier bedroom with a stunning view of the Sound, Island and Abbey for which it is named. Comfortably furnished, this room has a king-size bed and a seating area where you can watch the sun set behind Iona. The bathroom has heritage style fittings and a large walk-in shower cubicle.
Also upstairs are our two classic double bedrooms – Lunga and Erraid. Individually and tastefully decorated and simply furnished with bedside tables, loom chairs, and wardrobes, both bathrooms have a quadrant shower with rainfall shower. Lunga is at the front of the house with views across Tor Mor and the Sound of Iona towards the distant peak of the Dutchman’s Cap. Erraid overlooks the garden at the back of the house. Solo travellers particularly favour this room as it has a cosy feel with a sunny aspect facing south and catches the sun all day.
Our fourth bedroom, Eorsa, is on the ground floor. It has a panoramic view of Tor Mor and the Sound of Iona and was fully updated in 2021 with a new comfortable, super-king size (6 ft) bed which can be quickly converted to single beds for twin use. The spacious en suite shower room has a large rainfall shower to complete this charming bedroom.
Our dining room is set in a lovely conservatory with excellent views, west to the Sound of Iona (great for sunsets) and east to Ben More (great for sun-rises). From the dining room you can access the garden where there is a picnic bench for guest use – a great place to enjoy a glass of wine after a busy day out. We do not have a licence to sell alcohol so please bring your own and chill it in the guest lounge fridge.
Our guest lounge is comfortably furnished and has a fridge for guest use. A bookcase contains local information and guide books, maps and history books to help you plan your days on the Ross of Mull and Iona. The TV, linked to the UK FreeSat service, completes the guest room although as one guest said "who comes to Mull to watch the TV?” If the day is “gey dreich” (that is, very grey and wet) you’ll find plenty of board games to help you out.
Coats and boots can be left in the porch, where we will leave newspapers to stuff wet shoes and old towels to take the mud off ... but please note that we are not able to provide a laundry service during your stay.
