Aisling Cottage Diary

Welcome to the cottage diary for Aisling, a place where you can read some of the feedback from my guests.

22-29 October 2011

We've had a lovely holiday in Mull and have really enjoyed staying in Aisling Cottage. We fully enjoyed the superb views out of the top windows so we'll just have to come again. The landscape is amazing and we have seen some wildlife including sea otters, golden eagles, white tailed sea eagle and our favourite, a great Northern Dive. We recommend Cafe Fish and the chip van on the pier - a bit of a contrast, but both superb. Thank you Petrea and here's hopefully to next time!

We have a lovely time at both Aisling and Taigh Ciuil cottages - perfect for a family holiday. Had a fun packed time and leaving tired but happy especially after a few competitive family game nights! Thank you for a lovely stay and for loaning us your cottage Petrea.

First visit to Mull. What an amazing place. Wonderful scenery and breathtaking mountains. The weather was not kind but the people of Mull are. The cottage was very warm and has stunning views which really made our holiday. We will be back. Thank you Petrea

We have really enjoyed our holidays on Mull. The weather has been kind on arrival, Toured most of the island and would love to come back for longer next time. The cottage was very cosy and loved the views of the harbour. 

Many thanks

Thank you for another wonderful break in your lovely cottage. We had a very enjoyable time on Mull. Activities/events at An Tobar added to our enjoyment and helped when the weather was undecided. Looking forward to our Spring/Summer break next year.

Hi Petrea. We had a lovely time at the cottage, it was warm, comfy and welcoming after a cold day walking up hills and looking for wildlife! It was nice to meet you as well - a bonus. We hope to be back and would recommend it to everyone.

I have spent 25 years holidaying in Highlands and Islands cottages and Aisling Cottage is absolutely the best of them. 

The cottage is beautifully decorated,comfortably furnished to a VERY high standard and is equipped with absolutely everything one could need on a self catering holiday. It is also the warmest I have ever stayed in (and it was somewhat cold outside!). The internal planning is very attractive and functional and the views over the bay from the dining room are stunning -- breakfast is a real pleasure and you can cap it off with a nightcap and a beautiful sunset. The cottage is very safe and child friendly and the availability of games , DVD's and "Fireman Sam" on the box is great for those lazy days. Access from the ferry is straightforward, parking is no problem and there are enough VERY good places to eat if you can't be bothered to "selfcater". 

Will I ever go anywhere else? Probably not.

Aisling Cottage is one of my favourite places to stay in Scotland. The cottage itself is well appointed with everything one needs in the kitchen (pots, pans, ovens, etc), living room (DVD player, books, games), bathrooms (two showers and a bath), dining room, uility room and bedrooms. It's cosy and entirely habitable so even if the weather plays unpredictable games I never feel like I'm losing out of being on holiday and just having a place to chill. 

Then there are the views. Aisling overlooks Tobermory Bay, onto sea and land, and watching the light change could take up an entire day and camera memory card in itself. The front garden, just across the quiet road, is the perfect place for your morning coffee! 

It's just a short walk into the town's main street - highlights there are the deli/bakery (try the crowdie cheese!), the jewellers, the chocolate shop (mmmm... hot chocolate...) and Cafe Fish on the Pier. The shops have good stock and keep you very happy in this self-catering accommodation. Live music in Tobermor completes the experience! 

Aisling Cottage is the perfect base from which to explore Mull - Calgary Bay, Glengorm Castle, and Iona for a start. And it's great whether you're going with a bunch of friends or for a romantic getaway - it works really well for both. 

I can't wait to stay in Taigh Ciuil, which was just being built when I was last there but now looks amazing from the photos I've seen! 

DEFINITELY worth a visit at any time of year!

Had a great week at Aisling Cottage this summer.The cottage is home from home but with the added bonus of a terrific view, so much so you end up stood looking out of the window when not out in the garden and taking endless photographs of the same view. A very well equipped kitchen and the added bonus of the utlity room for washing and drying clothes we found useful. The house was spotless throughout with excellent quality duvets and bedding. 

We had the most beautiful weather and the added bonus of no midges. The garden is private a great place to sit and read your book or just relax, and the nearby art centre an added bonus when the need for wifi beckons as well as for lovely refreshments and even weekly evening entertainment. 

Tobermory is a great town with an excellent array of shops and restaurants, the cafe fish being our own favourite. We would definately recommend the sea eagle tour by the RSPB and also the secluded golf course, clubs available to hire in the town. Would definately love to return and explore the area more.
