“I have been to Mull a few times recently and really love it. I’ve previously stayed in Tobermory, so it was a really exciting change to be able to stay at the newly opened Rubha Nan Gall Lighthouse Cottages, and what a truly amazing experience it was.
It’s the perfect place to get away from it all, with its own fairytale footpath from Tobermory. The cottages are ideal for those who travel light and love to take walks with such amazing views and fascinating wildlife too. The walk to the Lighthouse is a surprisingly popular tourist activity in itself during the daylight hours. At night the cottages are wonderfully isolated and incredibly peaceful.
The cottages have been refurbished to an exceptionally high standard with the perfect mix of modern and original features. Each bedroom has en-suite facilities which a major bonus, with amazingly comfortable beds too. The ’signature’ room has the most incredible views over the lighthouse and the Sound of Mull which is just an unbelievable way to wake up if you are able to bag that room!
The kitchen has just about all the equipment you might need, from toaster to dishwasher, and is a lovely rustic place to share a meal and talk of the day’s adventures. The sitting room is wonderfully cosy and on the rare occasion that Scotland is on the cool side the open fire is a must.
Some great environmentally friendly touches have been incorporated too (such as its own supply of spring water, solar panels to charge the generator, environmentally friendly toiletries provided etc.) which are a major feature of these beautiful cottages for the environmentally conscious. On the other hand the Wifi works great throughout the property, whilst you may have to go for a little walk to get a mobile signal (mine worked about 50 yards away!) so you can even get away from your mobile for a few hours.
I could go on for pages about these wonderful cottages, as I had such a truly unforgettable experience there.
If you are looking for a little slice of perfection and a chance to get away from it all then go to Rubha Nan Gall Lighthouse Cottages, I am sure you will have an unforgettable experience. I will be back every chance I get.”
