“Lovely Peaceful Break”
Reviewed 13 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

We brought our two small children for the weekend, aged 3 and 1. My 3 year old was very excited to be staying in 'Balamory' and the house was a beautiful place to be. Clean, spacious, quiet, with plenty of free parking nearby and right off the main street. The house was lovely with easily blacked out sleeping areas for small children. My daughter loved visiting the coloured houses from Balamory, lunch at the chocolate shop and playing on the wee bit of beach. We would definitely stay here again if returning to Tobermory.

“Magical weekend in Tobermory at the Back Brae Lodge”
Reviewed 8 May 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

During a two-week family visit to Scotland in April, we stayed in small hotels, B&B's, hostels, guest houses, a chain hotel and Back Brae Lodge. We had done our homework in selecting sites and each had something to offer that we appreciated or enjoyed, but Back Brae was by far our favorite. In fact, our 15-yr old daughter announced that she would like to live there and my wife almost immediately began planning a return visit. The flat is bright with an open floor plan, well-situated near the east end of Main Street a very short distance from the wonderful Mishnish pub and the really splendid Cafe Fish. We enjoyed having a little space to stretch out and the flexibility to prepare a meal in the well-equipped kitchen and also the charming deck/grotto carved out of the rock cliff beside the house. Back Brae is well-stocked with books, games and movies if you should hit a spell of rough weather or prefer a quiet evening. Kenny provided excellent instructions on how everything operates (my wife admired his organizational skills) and local area information on restaurants, activities and even maps and descriptions of walks on Mull and around Tobermory. Communication was excellent throughout. We could not have been more pleased.

“Absolutely Fabulous”
Reviewed 28 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

Stayed here for 3 nights in March and so just pre-season. Accommodation was great and everything you could wish for. So central, but so quiet. Clean, spacious, great facilities from a very thoughtful owner, with the nice little touch of a welcoming gift. Felt so relaxed in a very welcoming property. Mull is great and Tobermory is a fantastic little town. Can't believe it took me so long to go back, but we will go again soon, now that I have ticked the Munro.

“Very comfortable of high quality and a joy to come back to!”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 for a stay in November 2013

We loved it here!
Back Brae Lodge was everything we were expecting. Tobermory was a lovely place to be based, every convenience was on your doorstep which was particularly good for us staying here in November! The weather was typical four seasons in one day, having said that it didn't stop us from getting out in it and seeing some fabulous wildlife (Otters, White tailed Eagles, Red Deer, Herons, Seals, Hen Harriers, Highland Cattle and not forgetting Mcginty the marvellous Tobermory Cat!
Back Brae Lodge was a great place to call home for our week. It was warm, clean and very comfortable. We have no hesitation to recommend it to you.

“Fantastc accommodation, weather and location.”
Reviewed 11 August 2013 for a stay in August 2013

We have had a fantastic week on Mull staying inthe very well appointed Back Brae Lodge. There was everything anyone could want in the property, it was clean, warm and welcoming. The area was a great place to be based, we had no car but getting around and doing what we wanted was no problem at all. we had a great day out with Arthur Brown from Discover Mull. We saw Sea Eagles, Otters, Golden Eagles and lots more and Pams homemade cooking was the icing on the cake. We also did the walk to the lighthouse and the one to Aros park, we would recommend both but do make sure you take a drink. A great holiday, great location and we hope to go back again in the near future.
