Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests

 “Thank you for an amazing stay
on this fantastic island!”
GE & BE - Germany - May 2016

 “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

 “Very well equipped.
Thanks for the welcome pack, nice touch! We enjoyed our stay.”
MB & WB - Newcastle-Upon-Tyne, England - May 2016

 “This is our second visit to Back Brae Lodge
... which we really love. Beautifully designed and appointed. Thanks for a lovely stay!”
LA - Edinburgh, Scotland - May 2016

 “Just to thank you for the excellent accommodation
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.”

Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews

 “Finally made to Iona
after two previous attempts, truly wonderful place. Love Mull, so many similarities with my other favourite spot, Connemara.”
VF - Edinburgh, Scotland - April 2014

 “Tobermory is a gem.
We met The Tobermory Cat on night 1 and also 19-year-old Mr McGinty in the street at his pub! We sought out Angus Stewart and bought some copies to bring home as we are moggies lovers! People in town were very friendly, notably at the fish and chip van, the new tea rooms recently opened on Main Street, the candle shop and in the street, particularly those with cute dogs to pat! We tried the lighthouse walk but the track was blocked by a fallen tree. We were a bit unrealistic about distances overall and did find the single track road a bit of a challenge, though we got better after a few trips. We made a day pilgrimage to Iona and loved it! Such a long way - did not research distance enough at home. We went to Governor MacQuarrie's mausoleum and found it a very moving monument in a delightfully peaceful place. We loved the sea loch on the way to the Ulva ferry and stayed there for some time - we think we saw otters frolicking in the near distance but couldn't be sure without binoculars.”
MR & DR - Sydney, Australia - March 2014

 “Having got Ben More off my tick list
we will definitely come back for another lovely holiday, out of main season again, which we really appreciated.”
PC & JC - Bonnyrigg, Scotland - March 2014

 “We loved the fish and chip van
and we had a good meal at the Mishnish.”
SN - London, England - March 2014

 “We were extremely lucky with the variety of wildlife we managed to see
on our six days. We saw White-tailed Eagles, Red Deer, Otters, Herons, Seals, Hen Harriers, fabulous Highland cattle and not forgetting McGinty(?) the wonderful Tobermory cat. We had a great two-hour trip with Sea Life Surveys, where Iain and Ewan were excellent guides and pointed out creatures that we would have missed had they not been with us. We loved Calgary beach which we went to on a wild weather day, and the Calgary Art Gallery, tea room and sculpture trail. We liked the walk to the Lighthouse, even though it was a real sunshine and showers day, and also Aros Park with the unexpected and very spectacular waterfall (remembering we had had quite a lot of rain that week!). We would also recommend Am Birlinn restaurant where we had a very tasty late lunch and the best homemade pavlova I have ever tasted! A good meal of Haggis, Neeps 'n' Tatties was enjoyed by the two men in the family at the Mishnish, and we all enjoyed the beer at McGochan's, which apparently comes from a chocolate lined barrel (can this be true!). Tobermory was an excellent centre for our holiday. Everything was close at hand and was well appointed with its restaurants, pubs, bakery, Co-Op and various gift shops. We had very mixed weather on our holiday from sunshine to torrential downpours but it didn't distract from our enjoyment. We just dressed up in our waterproofs and walking boots and off we went into some of the most beautiful scenery I have ever had the pleasure of being amongst! All in all a fabulous holiday which exceeded our expectations and yes, at some point we fully intend to come back!”
LD & ID - Sudbury, England - November 2013

 “Mull itself is incredibly beautiful
and Calgary Bay is definitely worth a visit. On the outskirts of Tobermory, Aros Park is also a lovely area to explore and perfect for a 3-year-old to burn off his excess energy.”
RH - Motherwell, Scotland - October 2013

 “As well as the Balamory house tour,
we also did whale watching with Sea Life Surveys (amazing), a boat trip to Iona which was magical, crabbing in the harbour, lots of walks at Glengorm and all the laminated walks in your folder. We used the Co-Op a lot to self-cater and also had a nice takeaway from the Indian opposite as well as the obligatory fish and chips from the van, which were excellent. Our only meal out was a lunch at Glengorm which was delicious, we can recommend the Ploughman's with Mull Cheddars! Overall we had an amazing break.”
AG - Stockport, England - August 2013

 “As our main interest is wildlife and photography
we had many excellent sightings of golden, white tailed eagles, otters, red and fallow deer and lots of other bird species.”
CS - Devon, England - July 2013

 “As to Mull, much depends on expectations
and the physical ability to enjoy the best of the landscape. We enjoyed our trip to Staffa with Turus Mara and were lucky enough to be able to land and explore the cave and puffin burrows. We were also exceptionally lucky on our Silver Swift trip to see Bottlenose Dolphins, a large pod of dolphins, porpoise, a white-tailed eagle, a variety of other sea birds and a basking shark. Only disappointment was the Cafe Fish and the well-done rolled fillets of sole.”
PT - Oxfordshire, England - July 2013

 “We went to Mishdish four times - very good
- but were very disappointed in Cafe Fish. We went to Iona and Ulva, lovely islands.”
AB - York, England - June 2013
