A holiday at Bad-Daraich House will give you the best of both worlds in that if is privately situated in peaceful surroundings, yet it is in the thriving and picturesque fishing village of Tobermory.

Mull is a perfect island with many miles of spectacular coastline, mountains, glens and safe beaches. Activities to suit all tastes are available; from fresh water and sea fishing to pony trekking, bird watching and hill walking. Cameras and binoculars are essential for your holiday on Mull and nature lovers will be able to choose from several wild life expeditions on land and at sea.
For those keen golfers, we are a stone’s throw from Tobermory Golf Course, one of the most rugged and beautiful in Britain, a challenging nine holes. Walkers will enjoy the renowned lighthouse path, running along below the grounds of Bad-Daraich, with its splendid views of wild and remote Ardnamurchan Point and beautiful Loch Sunart. Really, Mull is a paradise for all lovers of the great outdoors and it can truly be described as an unspoiled area where the air is fresh and sweet with scent of bog myrtle, bracken and heather.
Our climate is typically mild from the prevailing west wind which sweeps across Scotland’s west coast over the warm Gulf Stream Drift, but sudden rain showers can be a feature of this weather pattern so it is always wise to bring wellies and waterproofs!
The Isle of Mull is easily reached by car ferry from Oban (2’/2 hours from Glasgow) Lochaline (3’/2 hours from Glasgow) or Kilchoan. Visitors using the Oban / Craignure ferry are strongly advised to book space with Caledonian MacBrayne on 0800 066 5000 or www.calmac.co.uk
