Saorphin is situated on the Ross of Mull two miles from the village of Bunessan – a beautiful and peaceful part of the Highlands. The cottages are a great base for exploring Mull with many walks and beaches nearby as well as being close to Bunessan and a short drive from Fionnphort and Iona.
The 3 holiday cottages overlook Loch Assapol and moorland beyond. Alongside the sheep and Highland cattle you can see Eagles, Buzzards, Harriers, Owls, and Red Deer, as well as many smaller birds, butterflies and moths. The farm is managed traditionally to encourage wildlife, and Otters, Seals and Wild Goats are sometimes spotted on the farm beaches. Over 50 different types of birds have been seen here.
The two larger cottages are ideal for 4-6 but can cater for larger groups sleeping 8 and 10, or taken together for up to 16 people. The Bothy is a small and cosy cottage converted from an old traditional blackhouse with rounded stone walls, and sleeps 2 people.
Now under new management and with lots of improvements, including all linen provided, we will do our very best to make you welcome. We can also help with catering, and can organise buying local lamb, beef, sea food and vegetables. Please do give us a ring with any questions.
