Saorphin is a 650-acre farm on the Ross of Mull, situated two miles from the village of Bunessan. The beauty and tranquillity of this part of the Scottish highlands remains one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets.
Situated in a sheltered farm steading facing Loch Assapol with the view of Ardmeanach in the distance, are the Saorphin self – catering holiday cottages. The two larger cottages are ideal for 4-6 but can cater for large groups sleeping 8 and 10, and The Bothy is a small cottage converted from an old traditional blackhouse with rounded stone walls, and sleeps 2 people.
The cottages are a great base for exploring the Ross of Mull with many walks and beaches nearby as well as being close to Bunessan and a short drive from Fionnphort and Iona.
The farm is managed in a traditional extensive way that allows the wildlife to thrive in the many different habitats. 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. Otters, Seals and Wild Goats are sometimes spotted on the farm beach a short 1 ¾ mile walk down the track from the cottages.
