Tobermory Holiday House Reviews from Back Brae Lodge Guests
“Just arrived home after a long journey
but well worth it, we had such a great time. There is nothing at all I can think of that you need to improve (I did joke that there were no champagne flutes for my fizzy wine, but that was as mean as I could get!). We always stay in self catering accommodation and rarely do we find somewhere as good as this. Your housekeeper is a gem, the place was absolutely spotless. The rooms are better than the photos and the living and kitchen area is great, I have never stayed anywhere so comprehensively equipped. The location is fabulous, right by the Main Street and shops, eating places and attractions, but incredibly secluded and peaceful. We found it easily and never had trouble parking. We had such a wonderful time and cannot recommend Mull, and in particular Back Brae Lodge, highly enough. Once again thanks for being the key to a super holiday. When we return to Mull I would not consider staying anywhere else and will certainly recommend you to my friends.”
“We have had a lovely stay
in your very comfortable and well-situated cottage, and have enjoyed exploring North Mull. ”
Cannot fault any aspect of the accommodation, or Tobermory and Mull.”
“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.”
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.”
