Thank you for letting us use Back Brae Lodge as our holiday 'home' because that is what it felt like. We received a warm welcome from the lady preparing the house for our stay, and she gave us lots of local guidance – places to visit, things to see etc. Everything has been thought through in this Lodge – creating a pleasurable holiday experience.”

in the centre of town! Thanks again.”
“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!”

“We loved staying at Back Brae Lodge again
and can't think of anything that could be improved. It really is a great little place and spot. We'll be back if you'll have us...”
Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews
“We had a take away from the Indian which was very nice.
We had a meal in the Mishnish sat by the lovely log fire - food was nice. We went to Iona - a gorgeous peaceful island. We walked from Tobermory to the lighthouse and also to Aros Park. I had a massage at the beauty salon in Tobermory - again a lovely experience. My husband went on the distillery tour and enjoyed that. Everyone was so friendly on the Isle of Mull. We also did the walk from Glenmore Castle to Dun I and saw the bathing pool.”
“We were lucky with amazing weather
and loved visiting the stunning scenery and wildlife Mull has to offer. Would especially recommend the seafood at Cafe Fish on the harbour, and Langamull beach and Calgary bay.”
“It was great to have so much information about the local area.
We were able to use a couple of the walk suggestions despite the snow, hail and rain! A lot of places in Tobermory weren't open because of the time of year, but we had a really nice lunch in front of the fire at An Tobar.”
“We had two great walks
and we particularly appreciated the maps. We'd like to explore more of Mull on foot and/or bike. ”
“Tobermory was lovely
and had everything we needed. We loved our stay on Mull and saw four otters at Calgary Bay.”
“We loved the lighthouse walk
and in fact did this numerous times in all sorts of weather, also Aros Park which we found lovely. We loved the fact that we could park the car and just leave it. We did go to Calgary Beach which was amazing, and we had a fantastic walk there too. The scenery and drive there is absolutely breathtaking. The little arts and crafts studio and cafe there is fantastic with a great choice of food and lovely friendly staff. We were disappointed that the Tobermory Distillery was closed but what a wonderful job the workmen were doing to complete it. We did a lot of fishing and caught mackerel which were delicious. Fantastic to see a cinema bus visits as well. MacGochan's Restaurant and bar was superb, we spent many an evening there by their lovely log burner, then strolled back to the Mishnish for a last drink. We didn't eat out a lot but did go to the bakery for breakfast once and that was lovely, Cupan did a lovely lunch as well. One thing that I found very disappointing and was quite surprised by really, my daughter fancied some chips one evening so we walked along to the fish van, expecting to get some delicious proper chips to find that they were oven chips deep fried - definitely not proper chips! I hope all the people from around the world don't think they are our proper chips! I think the only other thing I would request to alter if I could would be the opening hours of the cafes, I think they should be open for longer in the evenings. The holiday was relaxing, the views amazing, people lovely.”
“It wasn’t our first time at Tobermory
so we knew the area a bit. While we were there we did some tremendous walks around the North Mull Coast which was beautiful, and Ulva where we had a close encounter with a pair of sea eagles. We enjoyed really excellent trips, one with the Sea Life Centre on wild life cruise, where we saw whales, basking sharks, porpoises and a whole pod of dolphins leaping around. The second was with Turus Mara to Staffa, which was great. It was a tremendous week with a couple of super meals out (Cafe Fish and The Western Isles).”
“We had a really good week.
With the British weather it is so hard to determine what the weather is going to be like from one day to the next! We stayed in Tobermory in November, so knew our way round a little bit already, but wanted to return as some of the restaurants were closed and there were no boat/RSPB trips running at that time. Numerous walks to Loch Frisa, up Speinne Mor and the lighthouse. This time we ate in Cafe Fish three times - the food is AMAZING and the staff are lovely too. We managed to do the RSPB trip, which was great and saw two sea eagles. Well worth doing and it's only £8 each. We booked a 2-hour boat trip but unfortunately this had to be cancelled because there were insufficient people booked on for it to run. Fish and chip van - yummy!”
“Facilities in Tobermory were great,
we had fish and chips from the quay the first night, catered from the Co-Op and Tobermory Bakery on two nights and treated ourselves to the Western Isles Hotel one evening. Mull overall was a great location, fabulous scenery, very kind and helpful people and the wildlife great - eagles and otters. We were also pleased that you had ordered such good weather for us - we barely saw any rain in 12 days and were at no time beaten off doing anything by the weather. We cycled about 100 miles and walked over 50 during our stay on the island.”
“The weather was excellent.
We took a boat trip to Staffa and Lunga on a Sunday and the conditions were ideal. A wonderful weekend.”
