Comments from the visitor's book :- 'Very comfortable stay, spotlessly clean and very well equipped accommodation. Good location, really enjoyed our visit to this beautiful island, we saw a sea eagle fishing at Loch Buie.” 'This is our second holiday staying in this very comfortable house, clean and tidy with great views from back of the house.' 'Really enjoyed our stay, the house has a great location, spacious, clean and has all the amenities needed for a comfortable stay. We will be looking to return in the very near future.'

Interaction with guestsWe usually meet new guests to Bayview but on occasions this is not possible, there is a coded key box for these occasions. No trip to Mull would be complete without a trip to Iona or a visit to the nest sites of the white tailed sea eagle. Organised visits to the eagle’s nest sites are booked via the tourist information office which is situated beside the ferry terminal at Craignure. Another highlight is a boat trip to the Treshnish Islands to see the nesting puffins in spring and early summer, check with the boat operator, Turus Mara, that the birds are still nesting before booking. Turns Mara also runs tour to the world famous Fingal’s cave on Staff.

Home from home
Bayview is only minutes from the Craignure Ferry terminal in a quiet cul de sac. We have stayed here on 5 different occasions and have never been disappointed. The house is very comfortable and is a lovely mix of old and new that gives it a real home from home feel. Craignure is an excellent base for travelling to all the main attractions on Mull e.g. Duart Castle near Craignure, Tobermory in the north of the island or Iona (Ferry from Fionnphort) in the South. The owners set the scene right at the start by always leaving out a lovely welcome pack and short note wishing you a pleasant stay.

"Perfect in all respects for any type of holiday in Mull."
The location could not be better - just a short distance from the ferry at Craignure. The .shore is on the back doorstep and great for birdwatching. The hotel next door offers a pool and jacuzzi which is a real bonus if / when it rains. The house has EVERYTHING you would want and it's clear a great deal of thought has gone into providing every comfort. The kitchen is fully equipped with what looks like new appliances and the whole cottage is freshly decorated and spotlessly clean. The host, Donald, could not have been more welcoming or helpful.The price is amazingly cheap. We'll be back!!

Perfect location for the car-free traveller
From this very pleasing terraced 1970 cottage you can walk along a pretty seashore path to the well-stocked shop by the ferry. From near the cottage you can catch a bus to Tobermoray or, from by the ferry, one to get you to Iona or a mini bus to Duart Castle. A few minutes away is a hotel where non-residents can swim and enjoy free wi-fi from a glassed lounge overlooking the bay. BAYVIEW is brilliantly well-kept and stocked with everything a visitor needs. The location is also quiet. Some excellent walks nearby: to Duart Castle (5 miles) and a long forest walk by a waterfall. I cannot recommend this house and its location too much.

It was good to meet you both and glad you had a good break in Mull where you managed to see an otter and a short eared owl. If you are ever back in the UK it would be great to see you again. Kind regards Donald

Very clean, comfortable and well equipped accommodation in good location.
The owners of this accommodation were most welcoming and helpful. They seemed to have thought of everything in equipping the house, which we found to be very clean and comfortable. It was a great location for us as non-drivers, being close to the ferry, main bus routes, pick up point for tours and the Visit Scotland (Tourist Information) office where we hired bikes. Had the weather been inclement we would have used the swimming pool which was only two minutes walk from the house, but as the weather was fine we swam in the bay which can be seen from the back of the house. (Calgary and Laggan Sands were also good for swimming.) Would recommend cycling to Loch Buie - stunning scenery and you might even spot a sea eagle as we did!

About the neighbourhood
Craignure is a village and the main ferry port on the Isle of Mull. The village is located around Craignure Bay, on Mull’s east coast. It has a population of roughly 200 people. There is a shop incorporating the Post Office and the fuel pumps, a garage, the Craignure Inn, coffee shops - Arlene’s and Blethers - and the Isle of Mull Hotel which houses a swimming pool - which is open to the public. Close to the village is Duart Castle. There is also a Visit Scotland Tourist Information office in Craignure beside the ferry terminal. There is a 9-hole golf course just outside the village (1 mile along the road to Tobermory).
Getting around
Bus services from Craignure (leaving from the ferry terminal) to both Tobermory (North) and Fionnphort, for Iona (South) run regularly throughout the day run by West Coast Motors, check their website for timetables. The Tobermory bus stops at the bus stop at the end of the Java road. Craignure is served by good bus links both north and south but to fully appreciate the remoter parts a car would be very useful.
Access
Car not needed
How to get there
There are 3 ferry routes to Mull:- Oban - Craignure, Lochaline - Fishnish and Kilchoan - Tobermory. The ferry to Iona leaves from Fionnphort at the south of Mull. In the summer the Oban ferry MUST be booked, if coming by car, as a lot of sailings are full - especially Saturdays (holiday let changeover day) - and you must report to the ferry terminal at LEAST 30 minutes before your departure time or you risk being left behind.
