The cottages were built as "but-and-bens" to match the landscape. The Owners' Cottage on the right sleeps up to 6, with a large double bedroom on the ground floor and two good twin bedrooms in the loft, one of which can be turned into a double. There is a big open plan living/dining/kitchen with multifuel stove, TV and music centre. Power shower over the bath, gas CH, wi-fi, gas cooker, microwave and frig.
The Shieling Cottage on the left sleeps up to 5, with a double bedroom on the ground floor, and in the loft, one single and one twin which can be made into a double. There is a Kitchen/living room, small drawing/TV room with sofa bed, and a shower room. Storage and panel heaters, gas cooker, TV, microwave, and wi-fi. In both cases, the traditional design means that access to the loft is by a sturdy ladder. Or use the sofa bed in the drawing room, and isolate the ladder from toddlers.
On site: launderette, bike hire, games room, campfire and wildlife trail - www.ShielingWildlife.co.uk - and a list so the children can tick things off as they find them. Stroll to ferry, pub, shop, bistro and buses for Tobermory and Iona (for Staffa). Walk to swimming pool, golf and and Duart Castle. Wildlife tours start from the door, so you don't even need a car, especially for short breaks. The perfect central base for all Mull.
Price for 2 from £57 per night, minimum 3 nights, £342 per week.
