Notes on COVID procedures at the end of description.

With stunning views and a large open deck space The Snug combines a super cosy indoor space with great outdoor living.

The open plan living room and kitchen has large glass sliders which open onto a generous covered deck area. There is seating and BBQ on the deck as well as stunning views over to The Burg. The deck also leads to the king size bedroom with ensuite.

The space
Please note - if dates for The Snug are unavailable please check out my other listing The Croft Caravan.

The snug is super well insulated but if you need more heat then just fire up the Morso Owl stove. There are plenty of dry logs included in your rental.

The snug is definitely a place to switch off and relax. There are great cooking facilities - we can direct you to loads of places to get fantastic local food including home grown veg, freshly baked bread, local seafood and local organic meat.

If you do want to stay connected then there is internet which we ask you to use on a fair use policy. Definitely plenty for a movie or two but we ask you not to let your devices go mad with updates. There is also free-view satellite TV. And the snug has a great sound system which you can hook into via bluetooth.

A note on dogs. We do allow dogs to come - I have dogs and I love dogs. But we ask that you only book with dogs if you can keep them off furniture and beds.

I want to assure people who are already booked and those thinking of booking that I will be taking extra precautions due to COVID 19.

Location

Ardtun, Scotland, United Kingdom

The Ross of Mull is absolutely stunning. This particular location is off the beaten track and enjoys spectacular views of both mountains and sea.

You can walk to the village of Bunessan in about twenty minutes. There's a small Spar shop and a pub for drinks or simple pub grub.

Fionnphort is about 15 minutes drive away. From there you can get the ferry to Iona or go on a boat trip to Staffa to see Fingal's Cave and the puffins.

For the more adventurous have a look at Alternative Boat Hire - sail aboard the beautiful Birthe Marie.

There are lots of wildlife tours available - a chance to see dolphins, whales, basking sharks, puffins, adders and eagles, as well as numerous other birds.

Stunning beaches abound! Ardalanish and Uisken are two of the better know ones but there are lots of other ones which The Snug folder will tell you all about. And there is also fantastic walking in the area. Again, The Snug folder will tell you all about walks you can do right from the van or within a short drive.

For eating out there are pubs in both Bunessan and Fionnphort. Or there is The Creel seafood bar at the top of the jetty - some of the best fish and chips you'll get. If you want something a bit posher then have a look at Ninth Wave Restaurant which is about ten minutes drive from the croft. Book ahead if you want to try it out.

Getting around
It is possible to get to the croft via public transport so long as you are willing to walk / cycle from Bunessan. (About a mile.)

Bike hire is available at Iona Craft Shop.

I live on a working croft on The Ross of Mull from where I rent out VW camper vans. It's a great place place to live - there are loads of fantastic beaches, great eating plus fantastic wildlife and scenery. I have dog - a very friendly chocolate lab called Peggy. She's available for walks and will guide you through some of her own eating haunts.

During your stay
Your space is very private but if you need me during your stay I can be easily found in or around the croft.
