Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests
“We had a fab time.
Couldn't fault the place one bit and hope to come back again. Thanks for providing such nice accommodation.”
“Had a great stay at Back Brae Lodge.
We really appreciated all the info that you leave in the black book, found all of it really helpful. The Lodge was everything that we needed. Overall a great time! We will be coming back in the future and will also be recommending to friends. Thanks again.”
“Thank you for having us in your lovely home,
it was the perfect location for exploring the beautiful island of Mull. We appreciated the eclectic book collection and massive blankets which kept us cosy on a rainy night. We hope to be back someday soon.”
“Had an amazing stay here.
So surprised by the amount of space! Lots of lovely added extras which made our stay even more enjoyable. Thank you!”
“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!”
well-located and well-equipped.”
“Had a great stay.
Everything was in order and the entire house gave us a very homely feeling. A great experience – thanks a lot!”
which we really liked.”
Lodge was equipped with everything you could ask and more! Thank you.”
“Thank you for a wonderful stay.
The lodge was brilliant and we both agreed that next time we are back on Mull we will definitely book again. Can't really think of any negatives or ways to improve the place as you seem to have thought of everything!”
Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews
“Our highlights were Calgary Bay,
Cafe Fish, Tobermory Bakery and our 9-month-old son enjoying the touch pad at the aquarium! ”
“Lots of walks, boat trip to Iona, sampled a few pubs.
Mishnish is cosy. Had a massage at the beauty salon - excellent. Enjoyed an Indian takeaway.”
“Because we had very busy days, we ate in every night but one
and I have to say that Cafe Fish was the only aspect of the holiday that didn't live up to expectations, the fish was great, but we didn't feel particularly comfortable sitting in front of the door and the music was so loud it was difficult to have a conversation, but each to their own! The Pier fish and chips were great and we had a drink in the Mishnish bar where the staff were friendly and the meals looked good value. We bought local meat from the Ardnacross farm shop on the Craignure Road (not really a shop, small building with labelled freezers, put your money in the honesty box) which was lovely, and seafood from the shop near The Hebridean restaurant. We also bought cheese from the Isle of Mull Cheese Company and wished we'd had time to do the tour. We did Staffa and Lunga with Turus Mara, Fingal's Cave was spectacular and the puffins, guillemots and shag nests were amazing, felt like David Attenborough! We had a day out with Isle of Mull Wildlife, which was good, and went to Iona under our own steam - a lovely trip rounded off by lovely lunch at the seafood kiosk at Fionnphort jetty. Pony trekking on the beach at Killiechronan was fabulous, neither of us had been on a horse before but the lady there was brilliant. The aquarium is lovely, ideal if you have children, interesting exhibits and friendly knowledgeable staff. We did the Aros Park walk and the Ardmore shore one, where we were lucky enough to see a slow worm, a lifetime first and a great thrill.”
“So much to see and do, we didn’t get to everything.
Great meal at Cafe Fish, three times at the Chip Van, both Chinese restaurants and Hebridean Lodge very good. Hired electric bikes, did Discover Mull Tour, Distillery tour, went to Glengorm Castle, Aros Park is a lovely walk, plus lots more. If you want to do nothing you have all you want in Tobermory, or if like us you like to get out and about as well it's perfect.”
“We had a great week, we did lots
- electric bikes, Mull tour, distillery, Cafe Fish, bakery, Hebridean Lodge, MacGochan's, Chocolate Shop, fish van...”
“It was great to be able to walk to the local shops
within a few minutes and we found the Bakery and Co-Op had everything we required. There are some great places to eat including the Fish & Chip Van, MacGochan's and Hebridean Lodge on the outskirts of the town. We also had a great meal at Glengorm Coffee Shop. We took a day boat trip to Treshnish Isles and Staffa where we saw hundreds of Puffins and some other sea birds as well as Fingal's Cave. A fabulous day out. We also went to Iona where the sun came out and we saw Corncrakes. Other favourites were Calgary Bay and most parts of the coastline. ”
“Day trip to Treshnish Islands
and Staffa with Staffa Tours. Day Trip to Iona. Glengorm Castle, and walk up to lighthouse across the golf course.”
“I had forgotten how beautiful and quiet the island is
and how friendly the folk were to us. Walked for miles using your recommended walks. We believe we saw eagles but unfortunately the RSPB hide was closed due to logging so can't be sure. We had two glorious days in Oban too before we crossed. We picked the perfect week.”
“We went for a walk at Glengorm Castle, out to Dun Ara.
That was great in the great weather we had but even better was the coffee shop at Glengorm. We liked the Isle of Mull Cheese place too, though it's a bit strange not having the cafe open at weekends but really nice the way they leave the shop part open with an honesty box.”
“We had a wonderful time.
The only slight downside was the weather. I say slight because although I love stormy weather, our daughter wouldn't have been too comfy being dragged about cycling with us in her bike trailer, so we didn't manage to get any cycling done. There was still plenty for us to explore by car and on foot. We especially liked Carsaig Bay with the seals welcoming us and the eagles above. Lochbuie and its old Post Office were in spectacular surroundings. The scenic route back to Tobermory from Fionnphort was amazing. Tobermory was very nice and our favourite thing there was the new aquarium. We wanted to go to Iona, but the day we made it to Fionnphort, the ferries were on amber alert and with the weather set to worsen, we decided not to chance it. That leaves us with another one of many reasons to visit Mull again and again.”
