The Ross of Mull has had its fair share of rain and bad weather, but somehow Pennyghael always manages to hold a beauty even when the rest of the country is suffering.
I think it’s fair to say that the whole of the UK has been battered by storms since the start of the year. The Ross of Mull has had its fair share of rain and bad weather, but somehow Pennyghael always manages to hold a beauty even when the rest of the country is suffering.
I guess this is because those that have visited hold the memories of what the vista is like in early spring, with the flora and fauna, dramatic mountain scenery against equally inspiring skies, the memorable bird life and the best quality local produce. All ingredients for a great break on Mull. According to your interests, Pennyghael is the best place to base yourself for your visit to the Island of Mull. Mull has so many charms, being a wilderness awaiting discovery, a haven of relaxation and peace, or simply a charming and beautiful place for a holiday away from the cares and pressures of modern life.
Mull has attractions for all the family, and offers a holiday where wildlife is around every corner, visitor attractions cater for all ages and the whole family has a chance to live a lifestyle far removed from the hectic urban pressurised existence.
With the sporting season ending in mid-February, Graeme, the Pennyghael Estate Manager, and Mark, his assistant, are busy with Estate and property maintenance; ensuring the chimneys are swept, broken crockery replaced, and that all three Pennyghael holiday cottages comply with new legislative requirements. Over the past 18 months the cottages have undergone a number of structural renovations, not necessarily cosmetic changes that our returning clients would notice, but expenditure that ensure that your stay is that little bit more comfortable.
When asked, the most common theme amongst those who holiday at one of Pennyghael Estate’s three cottages, as to why they return to stay on the Estate, is the spectacular views each of the cottages has.
Killunaig, being a traditional stone farmhouse built in the mid 19th Century, has unrestricted views over Killunaig Reef with its resident population of seals, across Loch Scriden to Ben More, the island’s highest mountain, and only Munro.
Torrans, being 400 meters up a farm track, is a more modern bungalow and has an attractive modern interior. Its open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen have large windows that take advantage of the stunning, panoramic views across the island. The feel-good factor of waking up to a view like that each morning certainly adds to the whole Pennyghael experience.
Beach Cottage was originally built for the estate shepherd and positioned to take advantage of the wonderful view overlooking the small estuary of the River Beach (pronounced Bay-ach), across the sea loch and beyond to the mountains.
