Our self catering holiday cottage accommodation offers a choice of two properties, Inch Hame sleeping 4/5 persons (which is on the right-hand side in the picture above) and The Sheiling, the smaller property which sleeps just two persons (situated at the rear of the above building). Use the buttons above to see more details about the self catering holiday cottages.

Ardrioch is a small farm croft set in its own 35 acres of paddocks and woodland with scenic loch views to the rolling hills beyond. The farm lies between the lovely village of Dervaig and Calgary Bay with its white sandy beach. The property has a large flat lawn at the rear suitable for children to play on and a more wild rugged landscape at the front filled with birds and birdsong. There is a large shed for use to put bikes and kayaks. Wet clothing and boots can be dried in the boiler house.

Ardrioch Farm is a cedar wood property on one level, set in an informal garden with lovely views across Loch Cuin, a sea loch, to the hills of Quinnish beyond. The farm is a small croft where we have Cheviot sheep and 20 acre deciduous woodland for our guests to enjoy, in which we have had the very rare Large Heath Butterfly.


White-tailed Sea Eagles and Hen Harriers can be seen flying over the hills and woodland at the rear of the farm and we have regular visits to the garden from  a Buzzard and Sparrowhawk. A short walk to the lochside may produce possible Red Deer and Otter as well as breeding ducks and waders.

A tour with Discover Mull wildlife is very worthwhile. Based at the farm, it will give you real flavour of everything Mull has to offer in the way of wildlife and spectacular scenery. A tour early in the week is recommended to give visitors the knowledge of North Mull's best wildlife watching sites.

Ardrioch is situated one mile from the picturesque village of Dervaig, where The Bellachroy Inn serves excellent food. There is also a very good local store and post office with a cash machine. 4 miles away lies the beautiful scenic Calgary Bay with its wonderful white shell sand beach, a must stop for any visitors to this magical island. At "Calgary Art in Nature" there is a restaurant for lunches and Art Gallery as well as a lovely woodland walk. ‘Am Birlinn’ restaurant  is just 1 mile away on the Calgary road, using mainly locally sourced products. At Croig and Langamull there are lovely walks and beaches. The Killoran Hotel, just a few hundred yards up the road, also do excellent outside meals.

Tobermory, 9 miles away, is the main town on the island and has a colourful main street and large scenic harbour. Around the main car park is a new visitors' centre, a whisky distillery and a garage with petrol pumps. Tobermory also has a Co-op supermarket, an excellent book shop, an arts centre and a super chocolate shop. There are several restaurants, 3 pubs and a great fish and chip van in the town so you won't starve whatever your food preferences.
