A traditional Bed and Breakfast set in open countryside. We cater for one family or group at a time. You are assured of peace and quiet. Panoramic views to Iona, Ben More and the Treshnish Isles.
Maolbhuidhe (pronounced mull-voo-ee) is a traditional style house just a mile and a half from Fionnphort and the ferry to Iona, Staffa and the Treshnish Isles bird sanctuary, and close to the picturesque former fishing village of Kintra.
We have one spacious family room, with one double and one single bed, and a private shower room. Tea and coffee making facilities are provided. There is also a private sitting room for our guests, with TV and video. A double sofa-bed in the sitting room may be used by larger family parties.
We provide a full breakfast, included in the price.
Maolbhuidhe enjoys panoramic views all round, including Iona, the Treshnish Isles, the Burg headland (Ardmeanach) and Ben More, the only Munro (hill higher than 3000 feet) on Mull. Hares and wild birds visit the garden and surrounding croft land, including buzzards, hen-harriers, owls and many smaller species.
Further information and an on-line booking form are available on our web site.
Linda and Tim assure you of a warm welcome, complete relaxation, and good food in a family atmosphere. We look forward to seeing you at Maolbhuidhe.
