The 'Peploe' in the kitchen is oil on canvas. Presumably a student's copy as it cost only £10!!
On the wall is a facsimile of the letter Mendelssohn wrote from Mull.

Stayed here for long weekend in September . Location is fab right on sea front .
house is lovely , lovely artwork and quirky objects , lovely log burning fire , Kitchen is so well equipped best of any holiday rental I have ever stayed in and no need to take ANY kitchen condiments as everything ( and more) is there that you will ever need ! Beds super comfortable and lovely window seats with great views .2 shower rooms , lots of towels and bed linen . Loved just being able to pop along to shops and pubs and have no uphill walk !!! would definitely go back !!

“Great accomodation and great location, highly reccomend”
Reviewed October 14, 2013 for a stay in October 2013

Hi stayed here when competing in the annual Mull rally. Accommodation was great and very comfortable and location was excellent being bang in the centre of Tobermory's main street, but with it sitting slightly back from the road it was ultra peaceful.
Lovely views over the bay. I have already booked for next year.

We only stayed on Mull for 3 nights and could really have done with at least 5. We would have liked to spend more time on Ulva, and also take a trip to Iona. For us (4 middle aged adults and a 20yr old) Tobermory was definitely the right location as anywhere else would have been too quiet. The house was well-equipped, cosy and very handy.

I have translated your review as follows:
The House is in very picturesque port, slightly set back, bigger than it looks from the outside. Walks, restaurants, shopping facilities right on the doorstep. Very rustic with a special charm. A small deduction because it was not particularly clean.
My reply:
I am surprised about the lack of cleanliness. I employ a housekeeper, and the house is usually spotless. It is difficult if there is a only as short time before the next guest arrives, but I will look into this to see if there was any other reason.
