Coronavirus COVID-19 Prevention in Mull
You should not travel to Mull IF:
- anyone in your household begins to develop COVID-19 symptoms, has tested positive or is required to self-isolate
- there are travel restrictions in place for your home area or for Mull
If you're going to be unable to travel to Mull for a booked stay because of national or local restrictions, we always offer you either a full refund or a change of dates.
Many Scottish Government rules on travelling within and to Scotland are law. We are currently in a period of national lockdown with rules to stay at home.

CalMac ferries are constrained in capacity due to physical distancing requirements. As ferries are public transport, face coverings are currently mandatory on vessels and in port offices, unless you have a medical exemption.
Cleaning and hygiene
We want you to be fully confident that you'll arrive in a holiday property that's thoroughly clean, and disinfected for your peace of mind. There'll be a minimum 24-hour vacant window before your arrival, after which our housekeeper will prepare for your stay. Cleaning and disinfecting products will be available at Back Brae Lodge during your stay, so you can maintain hygiene.
As a responsible self catering host and member of the Association of Scotland's Self Caterers, we've followed the ASSC's industry-leading measures for restarting safely and implemented their Enhanced Cleaning Protocols as well as preparing our own risk assessment. We've also signed up to VisitScotland's Good To Go certification for visitor accommodation and committed to Airbnb's Enhanced Cleaning Protocol.
Please bring sheets and towels
We may ask you to bring your own bedsheets and towels for your stay (all pillows and duvets are provided, with freshly laundered undercover protectors). This means that you can be confident laundry will be sanitised to your own standards. If this is going to be difficult for you, just let us know and we may be able to make other arrangements.
- Bring as many towels as you like.
- Our main bed has a kingsize mattress which ideally accepts a 160x200cm fitted sheet or flat sheet, alternatively a 150x200cm fitted sheet should do.
- The kingsize duvet is 230x220cm, or alternatively there's a standard double duvet needing a 200x200cm cover.
- Sofabed mattresses are each small double 120x190cm, with a standard double duvet needing a 200x200cm cover.
If the coronavirus risk reduces enough in future and we can be confident in offering our full laundry service again, we should be able to cancel this request - we'd let you know shortly before your stay. In the meantime we hope this request is reassuring rather than inconvenient for you. It's due to the extra housekeeping time which is now involved in our enhanced cleaning routine, making sure all areas of the house are properly aired, cleaned and disinfected before your arrival.
You'll have full use of our washing machine and tumble dryer during your stay, and wet things can be hung in the downstairs lobby or outdoor decked area.
