Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests
“We had a wonderful stay at Back Brae Lodge.
It's a lovely, clean, comfortable and welcoming house. It contains all you need to have an enjoyable and very comfortable stay. The books and beautiful artworks add a warm atmosphere. We love Tobermory - such an amazing place. Isle of Mull is full of beauty. We will be sad to be leaving Back Brae Lodge and Isle of Mull. We have had the most brilliant week here.”
“Well equipped house.
We have had a fantastic week here in Tobermory.”
“Thank you for a fab stay.
“We had a wonderful few days on the Isle of Mull
and would highly recommend Back Brae Lodge, Tobermory as a place to stay. The cottage is in a great location and we thought it spacious, comfortable, well-equipped and very clean. Excellent self-catering accommodation.”
“Enjoyed our stay.
Will recommend Back Brae Lodge to friends.”
“We had a great holiday in Mull.
The weather was wonderful and your house fitted the bill to a T. My companion had never been on Mull and was delighted. Look forward very much to a return trip.”
“Back Brae Lodge was perfect for us and exactly what we were looking for.
It was clean, had everything we needed. It was nice and warm and cosy, we had lots of fun with the Trivial Pursuit games. Thanks again for a wonderful stay, hopefully we'll return soon.”
“Thank you for the use of your beautiful cottage.
We had a lovely few days. The cottage was very clean and we would definitely recommend staying there. The instruction booklet was useful. The cottage provided everything you could want. The bed was extremely comfortable - just what you needed after walking all day.”
“Thank you for the most wonderful stay on the Isle of Mull!
We loved Back Brae lodge, it was so comfy and cosy and such a brilliant location. We were so impressed with how well it was set up, felt like a real home and had plenty of room! There were great tips of things to do round the island, games and DVDs for relaxing after a day exploring. Will be recommending to all our friends and family!”
“We had a wonderful few days holiday in Mull
and the accommodation was perfect. This was particularly important because the weather was pretty terrible, so it was great to have such a lovely place to stay in and stay warm! The house was spotless when we arrived, and even smelt really nice! We were able to keep very warm despite the house being so large... The bedroom was lovely, and the bed was really comfy. Lots of blankets etc to keep warm just in case. The notes for the house were extremely clear... The house is really well supplied with kitchen equipment, books, DVDs and games - we played quite a few of the games and even did a jigsaw.”
Mull & Tobermory Restaurant & Activity Reviews
“One of the benefits of living so close to the town
was the range of restaurants within a short distance. We particularly enjoyed the fish and chip van, the seafood place above the ferry terminal, and the Mull Pottery café. Our best trip of the week was taking the ferry from Ulva to see the puffins and Fingal's Cave. It was a magical experience but worth waiting for a fine day weatherwise. Another good trip out is a wildlife tour with Mull Magic, as they take you to explore areas you might not find on your own, and they are both very knowledgeable - especially about birds.”
“We thought the Co-Op provided everything you needed
and the smaller shops including ‘Arkwright's’ (Brown's) were excellent. We would recommend the Café Fish and we were lucky enough to see both sea eagles and golden eagles.”
“The MacDonald Arms along Main Street
was really lovely, with welcoming staff and locals.”
“We really enjoyed our lunch at Am Birlinn
on the road to Calgary Beach, and also we had a wonderful lunch in Café Fish at the ferry terminal at Tobermory. We also took a trip to Ulva on the wee boat and had a great walk and lunch at the restaurant there.”
“Best mussels at the Mishdish
and best hospitality in the Mishnish. The Water's Edge restaurant was faultless, venison to die for and pudding we had to let the belt out a few notches for.”
“I played golf twice on Tobermory Golf Course.
The views from the course are spectacular and the condition of the greens and fairways is first class. We saw Sea Eagles as we played and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The course's position high up on Mull makes it an ideal spot to view the spectacular coastline.”
“We got to Iona and it was lovely.
We were able to sit on the North Beach in the sun for several hours. Did lots of walks around Tobermory - to the lighthouse, Ardmore Bay, Glengorm, Treshnish, Aros Park etc. We loved the coffee shop inside the Chocolate Shop (try the Malteser chocolate cake) at the far end of the harbour, and also the one at Mull Pottery. We had lovely meals at Café Fish and The Park Lodge Hotel (the rib-eye was spot on) and of course the large fish and chips from the harbour. It is sad to see that you have lost your butchers and fishmongers. I was able to buy 2kg of scallops from a fishing boat at the quay. They were cooked the same night in white wine. The tour of the Distillery was well worth the visit and we came away with a nice bottle of 10 year old Tobermory.”
“Every evening we took a little walk along the harbour.
Splendid garden at Torosay Castle and wonderful sightseeing from Duart and Glengorm Castles. The finest walk was along Loch Ba and the River Clachaig. But also we will not forget the visit to the Isle of Iona with the abbey, and the Isle of Ulva.”
“We enjoyed the restaurant Café Fish,
very convenient with great food.”
“The great thing about the location
is that everything you need (ie the supermarket, restaurants and shops) are so close by. Regarding the island I truly recommend a driving tour round the north, stopping at the fine sandy beach at Calgary. We were fortunate enough to have incredible weather when we were up, but the scenery is impressive. We were there for a wedding so our touring was somewhat limited, but Glengorm Castle provided a beautiful backdrop for the bride and groom.”
