Caol-ithe Guesthouse


Caol-ithe Guesthouse, Fionnphort, Isle Of Mull, Argyll, PA66 6BL

    Welcome to our home 'Caol-Ithe' at Fionnphort on the Ross of Mull. Enjoying great views, here you will find peaceful and relaxing accommodation offering either guesthouse or self-catering cottage accommodation.

    Situated just a few minutes from village amenities and the boats to Iona and Staffa, you can take advantage of all that the Isle of Mull has to offer. Whether it is to Iona and its Abbey you are drawn, to Staffa for its amazing Fingal's Cave and in the summer the Puffins, the superb beaches or as a base to explore the rest of the island looking for eagles, otters, deer and other wildlife, you can be certain of a warm welcome and comfortable stay.

    Having enjoyed the stunning drive from the Calmac ferry at Craignure why not let someone else do the work and join us on one of our 'Isle of Mull Experience' tours. We can offer either walks or minibus tours calling on our experience of life on the island and giving you the chance of enjoying Mull at its best without having to do all the work.
