Craig Barn Lodge and Cottage are situated in an outstanding and beautiful area, affording stunning views over the beautiful and tranquil Loch Uisg. In a remote setting, surrounded by wooded glens and rugged mountain peaks, these spacious and very comfortable properties stand against the magnificent backdrop of Bheinn Creach. The cottage, a converted steading, has its own secluded garden with a meandering stream and delightful pond, whilst the former hunting lodge has 2 acres of walled gardens and natural grounds which reach down to the shore of the loch, of which each property has fabulous views. The nearest beach is only 2½ miles away at Laggan Sands. Ideal for families holidaying together these properties are well equipped for modern living and enjoy a timeless atmosphere. The abundance of natural wildlife and spectacular scenery makes Mull a paradise for the discerning visitor with its outstanding landscapes attracting walkers, artists, photographers, divers, golfers, sailors, cyclists, anglers and bird watchers. Around the island minke whales, red deer, dolphins, basking sharks, porpoise and otters can all be seen in their natural habitat, as well as golden and sea eagles and many other bird species. Boat trips can be taken to Iona where guests can visit the famous abbey, or to the isle of Staffa with the extraordinary Fingal’s Cave. The colourfully painted town of Tobermory (40 miles) is definitely worth a visit and Torosay Castle and Gardens make a great day out. There are two 9-hole golf courses on the island. These properties provide a truly “get away from it all” holiday experience and are perfect for larger families or small groups. Shop/P.O. and pub 11 miles.
