The Cabin is a small self catering 1 bedroom property attached to one side of Achnadrish House in the wilds of North Mull, yet only 15 minutes from the bustling harbour town of Tobermory.
It was originally built in the 50s to house the owners collection of mechanical toys which the children from Dervaig were invited over to play with and is full of charm. Open plan sitting room/bedroom, bathroom with over bath shower, full central heating fuelled by our wood chip boiler and a fully equipped fitted kitchen. The interior is warm, cosy and comfortable, ideal for a couple or single person. Sorry no dogs unless they sleep in the car.
We do our utmost to ensure your privacy whilst here at Achnadrish, the Cabin has it's own private entrance and parking area. Our ponies stables are close to the Cabin and although screened off you may hear us occasionally talking to our ponies! There is also a stunning view down the glen towards Ben Tallagh now that the forest has been felled and the sunrises from the Cabin are stunningly beautiful. A BBQ, and outdoor seating are provided. We also hire out hot tubs so let us know if you'd like to add one to your holiday (subject to availability).
We can put in a camp bed if required.
Please note, as we are in a rural location we recommend you come by car. (Although we are on a bus route and the bus passes us 4 times a day so it is possible to get here by public transport.)

The space
The Cabin is perfect for a single person or a couple and is ideally located in Central North Mull, 2 miles from the pretty village of Dervaig and 5 miles from the iconic town of Tobermory. With everything you will need including 24 hour heating and hot water, it is warm and comfortable, the perfect place to base yourself to explore the beautiful island of Mull. Achnadrish is in a very rural area and the Cabin is an ideal getaway from it all location, with the benefit of having the owners next door should you need help. If we are away then we always have a back up person on hand to help.
The wild life in this area is stunning with eagles and other birds of prey, red deer, owls, lizards and slow worms regularly sighted. Excellent walking opportunities exist in this area, with a Forestry Commision hide looking out to Loch Tor just 10 minutes walk away.
We keep animals here at Achnadrish, horses, hens, dogs and a very inquisitive cat and you or your children are more than welcome to walk around the area to see the animals.

Where you’ll be

Dervaig, United Kingdom

North Mull is a beautiful area with a wealth of things to do and see. Along the Northern Coast line are 4 stunning white sandy beaches with crystal clear turquoise waters all of which are easily accessible. There are hundreds of miles of Forestry tracks and walks to explore in the area and there is a wonderful track leading out into the wilds of the Loch Frisa glen leading from the entrance to the Cabin. Tobermory has a number of different wild life tour providers both land and sea based which we highly recommend to make the most of the rich wildlife we have on the island. Mull also has a rich food heritage and many producers and fantastic restaurants if you don't feel like cooking. There is a pub 2 miles away in Dervaig which provides wonderful meals.
