Please note that due to Covid 19 we are following ASSC cleaning protocols and putting extra cleaning measures in place which we will inform you about on booking. The most important one for you to know is that we are asking guests to bring their own bed sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases , towels, bath mat etc. The Cabin is a small self catering 1 bedroom property attached to one side of Achnadrish House in the wilds of North Mull, yet only 15 minutes from the bustling harbour town of Tobermory. It was originally built in the 50s to house the owners collection of mechanical toys which the children from Dervaig were invited over to play with and is full of charm. Open plan sitting room/bedroom, bathroom with over bath shower, full central heating fuelled by our wood chip boiler and a fully equipped fitted kitchen. The interior is warm, cosy and comfortable, ideal for a couple or single person. Sorry no dogs unless they sleep in the car. We do our utmost to ensure your privacy whilst here at Achnadrish, the Cabin has it's own private entrance and parking area. Our ponies stables are close to the Cabin and although screened off you may hear us occasionally talking to our ponies! There is also a stunning view down the glen towards Ben Tallagh now that the forest has been felled and the sunrises from the Cabin are stunningly beautiful. We can put in a camp bed if required. Please note, as we are in a rural location we recommend you come by car. (Although we are on a bus route and the bus passes us 4 times a day so it is possible to get here by public transport.)
“Belle cabine - très confortable et propre. Bon emplacement avec beaucoup de restaurants à proximité (Dervaig et Tobermory) mais une cuisine très bien fournie pour la cuisine maison aussi. Grande promenade de la cabane à Glengorm où un bon café peut être trouvé. L'hôte a fourni un grand répertoire d'activités et de commodités autour de l'île. Globalement, nous avons passé un séjour très agréable.”

The most important one for you to know is that we are asking guests to bring their own bed sheets, duvet covers, pillow cases , towels, bath mat etc. The Wing of Achnadrish house, on the Western side of the house, originally housed the servants who looked after the guests in the main house, and although modernised, it retains a historical charm. The 3 bedrooms originally formed the hayloft and have a cottagey feel, whereas the downstairs is a little grander, with high ceilings and larger rooms, with a more shooting lodge feel to it and it now benefits from full central heating fuelled by our wood chip boiler, so you can be warm, and environmentally friendly! The garden is yours to enjoy and tables, chairs, a fire bowl and a BBQ are provided. Dogs welcome but must be kept on a lead when out of the Wing's enclosed garden as we have free range hens. We live in the central part of the house and there is another small self catering property on the Eastern side of the house. The Wing has a private parking area and private entrance. Please note the WIFI is limited to the sitting room and kitchen. We regret that the Wing is not suitable for those with limited mobility as the stairs are steep although there is a sturdy handrail. We should add that there is one toilet in the Wing which is upstairs, separate from the bathroom. There is a free standing shower in the bathroom as well as a lovely big old cast iron bath for a good soak. The hot water and heating are on 24 hours for your comfort. The Wing is suitable for families with children.
“C'est une belle maison qui est séparée de la partie principale du bâtiment. Mes 3 soeurs et moi avons passé un séjour très confortable avec un bel ensoleillement. Nous avons mangé quelques nuits et la cuisine était bien équipée. L'escalier est raide mais ce n'était pas un problème bien que nous soyons tous dans nos 70. Eugénie était très utile. Les routes sur Mull sont principalement des pistes simples avec des passages, et les temps de trajet prennent donc beaucoup plus de temps que sur le continent. Nous sommes allés faire de belles promenades et nous avons eu un très bon repas et un café au poisson (réservation requise).”
