Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests
“Many thanks for the use of Back Brae Lodge last week.
We found it lived up to our expectations. It was clean and very tidy. Just what we required. We can't think how you could improve the accommodation. We found Tobermory to be a beautiful place even though at times the weather may not have been kind to us. We would have no hesitation in recommending Back Brae Lodge to other interested people. We are considering returning to Tobermory in the not too distant future so you may hear from us again. Once again many thanks for making our stay much more enjoyable.”
“We have had a fabulous week thank you.
We have loved Tobermory and Mull. The house has been great. Very impressed with the instructions on where everything is and how things work. Really liked having a proper working kitchen with decent equipment/utensils etc. Comfortable bed and good sofa. Spacious accommodation. We would definitely recommend Back Brae Lodge.”
“Back Brae was a fantastic holiday house for our holiday to Mull.
Walking down the garden steps immediately into Tobermory front with its shops, bars and restaurants was fantastic. The decked garden area was a lovely place to sit and enjoy some cakes bought from the local bakeries. My husband and I were here to celebrate our wedding anniversary and will definitely be back. The quality of bedding, towels and furnishings was fantastic. Well organised and resourced kitchen. Lovely welcome pack and lots of helpful info about the house on arrival. Thoroughly recommend a stay here and will be telling all our friends! Make sure to visit Duart Castle for a delicious afternoon tea, Calgary Bay for a walk along the beach and Mull Theatre if there are any performances on!”
“We were delighted with the house,
the location and the amenities provided meaning it felt like home from home. We can add nothing other than to say it was first class.”
“We have found the Lodge well-equipped,
conveniently located for shops and restaurants, and close to sources of information/resources. It was welcoming and clean. Good to have access to a landline. Information folders were a great help.”
“We have had a wonderful time on Mull,
and Back Brae Lodge was the perfect base... the DVD library is extensive, the choice of reading matter diverse, games, puzzles and maps are amazing. Not that we used any of them! We have been blessed with glorious weather and been out and about Mull from after breakfast until very late evening. Fabulous week.”
“Thank you for a wonderful stay at Back Brae Lodge.
We wanted a pet-free base to explore Mull from, and Tobermory was the ideal location. I spent hours trawling the Internet for pet-free accommodation, so recognised a good few of the properties we subsequently passed on our explorations, and each time we said we were so pleased to be in Tobermory. We were really blessed with great weather, it may have rained during two nights, but the days were bright and sunny, so we did not get opportunity to read from the contents of the library, but there were books there I would like to have borrowed! Neither did we watch TV, except for news and weather details, so the extensive DVD collection was only perused and not viewed. The amount of information you provide for your guests was really helpful too. We would certainly recommend Back Brae Lodge to our friends. Thank you once again for providing a lovely pet-free holiday home. It was very much appreciated.”
“We enjoyed our stay.
It's like home from home, lovely and clean and well-equipped. We have fallen in love with Mull we will be back to stay again.”
“We loved our stay
at your lovely accommodation, it felt like home from home.”
- quiet yet so close to the centre. Thank you for a perfect stay in a clean, airy apartment.”
Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews
“We spent a great time watching sea eagles
at Ardnamurchan Lighthouse while having our picnic. Ironically, everywhere we went we saw people on boats, in car parks, all with binoculars seeking out the 'elusive' eagle, and we had two bicker over their lunch in front of us while we were eating ours!”
“Tobermory is a fantastic place,
we also had a quick trip to Calgary Beach which was very cool. ”
“We enjoyed trips to Iona and Calgary Bay
and also called in to see our relatives at Salen (who know you, they said to say hello!). We even had a sighting of the Tobermory Cat!”
“My husband is a fan of single malts
so we're gradually working our way around distilleries in Scotland, and he really enjoyed the whisky, particularly the Ledaig.”
“Wildlife seen - a Sea Eagle, otter,
Golden Eagle, short-eared owls and even a stray osprey - but the highlight was five dolphins that swam into the Bay and gave us all a display - priceless!”
Circular walk to lighthouse – great. Used info from book. Loved Aros Park – walked to far end of woodland track and had our picnic. Salen – walked on forest track above the loch and then to castle. Saw seals basking but no otters. Enjoyed Glengorm Castle and walks around here. Lovely tearoom. Really loved the Cheese Farm. Well worth a visit and food in the cafe super. Piglets and calves were a delight too. Drove to Dervaig, stopping at eagle hide above Loch Tor and also at the settlement about 3 miles east of Calgary. Tearoom and gallery good in Calgary, so too all the wood sculptures.”
“Superb meals to be had at the Mishnish,
but we gave Cafe Fish a miss as they only want cash (Cafe Cash?).”
“We ate at Mishmash, and MacGochans twice
and the food and ambience were amazing. We tried the Indian and Chinese takeaways after some long walks, both excellent, however the best food we had was from the Tobermory Bakery which was excellent, great and far too tempting cakes, and fab sandwiches/bread for lunches when walking. We spent too much at the Chocolate Shop, again excellent produce, and to be honest there were so many other great places to relieve yourself of cash, though great local crafts and produce. We spent a great day walking on Iona, on a low key slightly rainy day we walked the Aros Park route from Tobermory and we were lucky enough to see otters in the bay. We saw seals at Calgary, again another chance excursion on a rainy day, and we saw some eagles on a walk just up behind Tobermory, all in all very lucky in terms of spotting wildlife.”
“We loved the Mishnish pub
and had two lovely pub meals there, however we made the mistake of ordering off the restaurant menu on our last night only to be extremely disappointed. We had our best sightings of otters to date!”
“We enjoyed the walks to the coastline and Aros Park.
Everyone was really friendly and helpful in the village and we even had a personalised tour of the museum by someone who offered us a lift from the ferry port. The buses were not that frequent to and from the port but the whole trip was an adventure for us finding this beautiful location.”
