    Road Directions

    The Isle of Mull is reached by ferry from Oban (to Craignure) or Lochaline (to Fishnish). There is then a short drive north to Tobermory which is well signposted from either ferry. Buses also connect Craignure with Tobermory. On reaching Tobermory you will find a roundabout, go straight ahead (over a bridge) and then immediately turn right onto Breadalbane Street. Follow Breadalbane Street as it winds across Upper Tobermory. There is a small rise to a crossroads and, just beyond the crossroads, Fireach is on the right hand side, in the middle of a terrace. Park outside the cottage.
