Location description from owner

The Scotland 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

Dervaig

The isle of Mull is home to Duart Castle, seat of the Clan Maclean.

There are many festivals, including Mull Music Festival (last weekend in April), Mull & Iona Wild Life Week (2nd week in May); Mendelssohn on Mull (1st week in July); MacLean Gathering 18-24th June; Mull and iona Food Festival (1st week in September) and Mull Rally (2nd weekend in October) as well as Rugby Sevens, Highland Games, Yachting Week, Agricultural Shows at Bunessan and Salen, a Half Marathon and the local Mod.

“Lovely little cottage very comfortable & well equipped.”

Reviewed 17 Aug 2016

We were very comfortable, had everything we needed. Owners even rescued our washing from the rain while we were out, very thoughtful. Unfortunately the weather was not kind to us during our stay however we we pleased to have such a nice cottage to be marooned in.

Owner's reply: Sorry about the weather! Thank you for your kind comments

“Lovely lodge in a great location”

Reviewed 13 Nov 2012

The location of the lodge was perfect, close to some lovely walks, great views, and the local pub only a short(ish) walk down to the local village. There was a wealth of information on hand inside the lodge on walks, places of interest, etc. The pub served great food and made our two dogs (one of which was the size of a bear!) with open arms, even offering them biscuits free of charge :). Mull was beautiful. It was my first visit to the island and I was sad to leave, wishing we'd booked to stay longer. Will definitely go back!

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review Sycamore Lodge; Janet and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay with us. We do work hard to ensure all our guests enjoy their stay and the positive review means we are gtting something right. Thank you. Best regards, Andrew & Janet stevens

“Quiet retreat on Mull”

Reviewed 5 Nov 2012

A very comfortable, well equipped base for our stay on Mull. After a speedy introduction to our lodge we were happily left to enjoy the week. Surprisingly the owner failed to appear to check us out the night before our early departure. Only slightly negative point was the small size of the bath towels. The request for this feedback, 3 months after the stay, shows how laid back our hosts are to this beautifully situated lodge. We would return should we decide to spend another holiday on Mull. Wifi was practically non existent and best received by stand ing close to the owners property.

Owner's reply: Thank you for taking the time to review Sycamore Lodge. Janet and I are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. We welcome your feed back and are planning hard wiring the WiFi for 2013.
