Welcome to the Old Mill, offering high quality and well appointed Bed and Breakfast and The Smiddy Self Catering holiday cottage accommodation on the Isle of Mull.
The bed and breakfast accommodation is attractive and comfortable with en-suite facilities, all rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and colour television.
Old Mill Cottage and The Smiddy are located in Lochdonhead, now more commonly referred to as Lochdon, just 3 miles south of the Craignure ferry terminal. As the name suggests, the small hamlet of Lochdonhead was built round the shore at the head of Loch Don.
Loch Don has a wealth of waterfowl and wading birds both summer and winter and guests at The Old Mill often wonder down to the bridge before breakfast to look for otters, they may find not only otters but sea eagles, hen harriers, greenshank and occasionally osprey that have been sighted fishing on the Loch.
The Old Mill in Lochdon is an ideal base for exploring the Isle of Mull, it is centrally situated between Tobermory at the north end of the island and Iona to the south.
Visitors to the Isle of Mull are amazed at the variety of rock formations which make up this Isle. It was reported to be the most complicated igneous centre to be studied in detail anywhere in the world. There are many books and texts written about the geology of Mull. If you get the chance to read "The Isle of Mull" by P.A.Macnab, you are in for a real treat!
At Mill Cottage our guests take breakfast in the sunny dining room, surrounded by flowers and trees. The garden, full of birds, is awash with colour throughout the year.
Mill Cottage Bed and Breakfast has three en suite bedrooms, two double and one twin. The Green room has a king size bed with its own entrance door and hallway.
During chilly days the log fire burns warmly in the guest's sitting room. We have an abundance of books, maps and magazines so why not come in after a long winters walk and relax by the fire. All rooms have tea and coffee making facilities and you are welcome bring along your own wee dram and curl up in front of the fire to plan your days ahead on The Isle of Mull.
