We will refund the deposit less a £10 administration charge in the case of any cancellation prior to 60 days. The balance will be due one month (30 days) before the commencement of the let. We ask for a £100 deposit to confirm the booking.

The Hebrides/Skye region
The Isle of Mull, said to be the prettiest of all the Hebrides, is a place to unwind, to enjoy peace and tranquility, breathtaking scenery, abundant wildlife and a variety of activities. Having the choice to do as much or as little as you wish is the essence of a good holiday. Some of the options available are:
Take a boat trip to Staffa, The Treshnish Isles or Iona. Climb the island Munro - all 3170 feet of it! Chill out on the white sands of Calgary. Take a wildlife watching trip for your best chance of viewing otters, golden and sea eagles, porpoise, red deer, seals and whales as well as the huge variety of flora and fauna for which Mull is famous.
Go pony trekking, Whale searching and Loch fishing. Spoil a good walk with a round of golf on either of two courses both of which have beautiful settings and panoramic views. Visit Duart Castle, the ancient seat of the Clan MacLean of Mull. Indulge yourselves at the chocolate factory. Discover the Mull of the past at the museum
Enjoy the latest exhibition at An Tobar Arts Centre or maybe catch a concert. Watch a play at the theatre. Visit the distillery, try a wee dram. Browse in craft shops selling goods by local craftsmen. Visit galleries showcasing local artists.
Enjoy a selection of locally sourced real food, e.g. shellfish, local beef, lamb or pork at one of the many eating establishments. Explore the coast (we've got 300 miles, - 480km. of it) much of it wild, rugged, full of surprises, keep an eye to the ocean for many different seabird species and the occasional fin - porpoises, sharks, sunfish, dolphins, whales, including orca are seen occasionally!
Mull is a Mecca for geologists with a great variety of formations from different eras in the formation of the planet.
Are you fascinated by archaeology and history? We have duns, brochs, forts, standing stones, scores of ruined villages, each with a story to tell.
Finally, stories about constant rain and wind in the west of Scotland should be ignored. During May and June we often have near drought conditions and wall to wall sunshine. Sunburn is a risk on Mull, bring the factor 15, but also bring the wellies just in case! If you are looking for peace and tranquillity amongst spectacular scenery with the opportunity to do as you please, then look no further
