Third time staying with Jean & Alasdair but first time at Darach Beag. Beautiful accommodation and location. Hope to be back very soon.
Thank you for a lovely few days – what a place. We will be back.
What a lovely welcome from Jean & Alasdair and what a spectacular location. The house is so lovely and cosy with everything we could need. Our daughter loved the toy cupboard. We will definitely recommend Darach Beag.

Couldn't have had a nicer week due to the combination of the island and the accommodation. The kids loved the house and garden spending hours on the swings and running round the house. Jean and Alasdair could not have been more welcoming.

Our holiday stated months ago when Jean first replied to our request. We work in Travel and Tourism and it has been some time since we found someone who shows such genuine care, attention and friendliness. This is a home away from home, very nicely furnished with everything you need.

Our first visit to Mull has been fantastic. The cottage, the weather and the scenery. Darach Beag has been so comfortable with ever changing vistas. Many thanks for a lovely stay.
Angela and Stuart.
We have been to Mull many times before but this is our first holiday based in Tobermory and we were lucky enough to experience this in Darach Beag- a great cottage with a great location.
