Linnhe View Bed and Breakfast, Isle of Mull
The island of Mull is, in a word, awesome.
It is unspoilt, wild and beautiful. North, South, East or West the scenery is different but wherever you are on the island it is spectacular. We have stunning waterfalls, rocky crags, high cliffs, beaches, tumbling rivers and grasslands. Life is slower here, more old fashioned and very therapeutic.
Many of our guests return annually, especially in the Spring to view the White Tailed Sea Eagles, Golden Eagles, Hen Harriers, Buzzards, the elusive Corncrake and a whole host of other bird species. Red Deer and Otters can always be spotted though patience is a virtue. Wild flowers abound.
We are privileged to have our home here and you are more than welcome to share it with us. The house, a beautiful old Manse built in the 19th Century, is 150yds from the ferry terminal in Craignure. It has large rooms and picture windows with superb views of Loch Linnhe and the Sound of Mull.
Our village is ideally situated to explore all Mull’s attractions. It is 37miles from Fionnphort and 21 from Tobermory. It is advisable to bring your car with you, but if you can’t then there are many tour guides who will be only too happy to show you around. Buses serve Fionnphort and Tobermory but to see the stunningly beautiful west coast, a car is necessary.
Duart Castle, home of the Chief of the Clan MacLean is within walking distance (3 miles ) as is the local hotel with it’s swimming pool and health spa. Our local pub is an old Drover’s Inn, a great place to eat and chat about the day’s activities over a wee dram. A church, shop and post office as well as the visitor information centre are all close by as is a very busy charity shop and a whole lot of beautiful walks – you might well spy an otter or an eagle - a coffee shop and Bistro also attract visitors who can sit a mere few yards from the bay. A 9 hole links golf course sits along the seashore.
