“This place is fab!
It’s so spacious and lovely, the bed is really comfy, the open-plan living dining room area is great and we love how central it is. My husband was pretty impressed with the wifi speed! We may well find ourselves back here at some point if you’re ever not booked in the summer!”

and well equipped.”
AD & CD - Bishopton, Scotland - September 2016

“We’ve had a lovely holiday.
Thank you for letting us use Back Brae Lodge as our holiday ‘home’ because that is what it felt like.

“We’ve loved our stay here.
Very well organised, catered for, and lovely and clean - and just lovely! We would love to come back next year, if you’ll let us. It was nice to spend more time in Tobermory as we usually only manage 3 hours at a time as part of a day excursion from Eilean Shona. We’ll be in touch regarding a booking for next year. Thank you so much - it’s been lovely again!”

on this fantastic island!”

“We had a good holiday.
The house is in a great location and very practical. It has everything needed for self catering and the small additions like dishwasher tablets take away the hassle. The upstairs space is amazing - when are you having the next party?! It is very comfortable with loads of good books and maps, also DVDs for the occasional rainy days. On those wet days the entrance lobby is perfect with the tiled floor and plenty of hooks and space for drying the gear. We hope to be back soon.”
MB & BB - Newcastle Upon Tyne, England - May 2016

Thanks for the welcome pack, nice touch! We enjoyed our stay.”

at Back Brae Lodge. It was perfect for us and the welcome pack was a particularly nice touch! It was great that the weather was so much better than forecast - sun all three days.”
LW - Scotland - April 2016

“Clean and bright,
well-equipped kitchen. Had a great stay, thank you.”
PG - England - April 2016

“We had a great time on Mull,
the weather was fantastic, blue skies every day and not a midgie to be seen! I’m afraid I can’t suggest any improvements for future guests to Back Brae Lodge, everything was clean and accessible. We will definitely stay at Back Brae Lodge next time we visit Mull.”
PG - UK - April 2016

“We have had a lovely time here in Tobermory,
having not been in Mull for almost 20 years. Back Brae Lodge has been a perfect base to go out and about the island and provides a welcome which is warm and cosy when you return. We liked the comfort of a king size bed and having a dishwasher etc which felt home from home. Hope to return soon and will pass on details to all our Scots-loving friends and relatives to stay here at Back Brae Lodge. Many thanks.”
KM - England - April 2016

“I would just like to say a huge thank you
for providing such a super wee house in the middle of Tobermory. We were road cycling for the three days so it was a perfect base and we will definitely try to come back at some time, also recommend to others. All perfectly clean and very comfortably provided.”
EM - Elgin, Scotland - April 2016

“Everything was great.
The house is lovely and appliances are easy to use. Where the house is situated couldn’t be better for getting out and about. Bed was clean and comfy, towels were clean and fluffy. Kitchen was really nice as was the living room, sofas were comfortable. Loads of cutlery and crockery and ample pots and pans. All in all we had a great time and would recommend Back Brae Lodge to everyone. I hope that it won’t be too long until we next visit Mull and hopefully we can stay in Back Brae Lodge.”
DF - UK - March 2016

“Beautiful place, highly organised and well presented.
We could see lots of thought went into this. So thanks very much, we’ve had a great weekend. And please thank Mary, who left the house so clean for our arrival! Thanks for the welcome pack too.”
TY & GY - Oxfordshire, England - March 2016

“Thank you so much for the welcome goodies.
We had an excellent stay.”
TM & AM - UK - March 2016

“We had an amazing stay
and the house was very clean and comfortable. It was warm and cosy… there was enough of everything, and we found the kitchen well stocked with necessary utensils, though we did take advantage of the great places to eat on Main Street! There are nothing but great things to say about Mull and Back Brae Lodge, and I think we will be back at some point in the future.”
AMM - UK - March 2016

“Terrific cottage in a beautiful town.
We’ll be back!”
CT - UK - January 2016

“The house was really good and better than we expected.
The dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, oven, fridge, freezer, tea and coffee along with various other things were all appreciated. We’ve been to Mull once before so had a rough idea where Back Brae Lodge was but we didn’t know quite how close and convenient it was to everything. It was very nice being able to walk to the Co-op or going to the Indian and it taking a couple of minutes, if that. The amount of detail that went into in the welcome book and with all the things on the noticeboard were also appreciated and came in handy. We had a look at the menus and used one for the Indian and we picked one of the walking routes out of the book for a walk to Croggan. With us deciding to go to Mull in January, most things seemed to be closed and so we spent a lot of time in the house and so it was really nice being somewhere we liked. We had a really nice time and will more than likely be booking it again.”
JM & SP - Manchester, England - January 2016

“Overall the stay was great.
House was warm and everything was as expected.”
NC - Scotland - January 2016

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.

Once again many thanks for making our stay much more enjoyable.”

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.

Thoroughly recommend a stay here and will be telling all our friends!”

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.”
SW - Yorkshire, England - May 2017

“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!”
DS & RS - England - April 2017

“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 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.”
DS & RS - UK - April 2017

“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.”
IC - England - April 2017

and the use of Back Brae Lodge. We found the house very comfortable and every possible facility was available. We can’t think of any suggestion for improvement. A great base for a lovely holiday on Mull. ”
KT & CT - Edinburgh, Scotland - March 2017

“Thank you so much for everything.
Back Brae Lodge is everything we hoped for and more. Our only disappointment is that we can’t stay longer - Friday to Monday is just not long enough. Next time we will make it a week at least. We will definitely be back. It’s the perfect base for exploring Mull.”
JF & PF - Greater Manchester, England - March 2017

“We just got home and can honestly say Back Brae Lodge was absolutely lovely.
It had everything we could possibly need and proved to be the perfect base for exploring Mull… We would love to go back but next time we’d like to book for a week.”
