‘We have just returned from a very enjoyable stay at Shepherd’s Cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, the kitchen was well equipped with lots of handy extras. The cottage has a lovely cosy feel and beautiful sea views. My children loved the garden. The cottage is in a very remote location which added to it for us. The road mentioned in the description was tricky for us to drive down but we managed it as long as we took our time. We enjoyed lovely walks to the secluded white sandy beach which are only ten minutes walk away. Scott was also very helpful and quickly answered all of my questions prior to arriving.’  Adam Sept ’20

‘Scoor House is a great place to recharge your batteries. Lovely, remote location with great walks and views, beautiful beaches and dark skies that showcase the amazing stars on a clear night. Well worth taking time to explore all that’s on offer within walking distance of the house and to enjoy being ‘off grid’ and having a digital break with very limited Wi-fi and mobile signal. However, also many little hills to climb which offer the chance to download emails or make a call, if you really want to! Accommodation was absolutely as described, comfortable and with everything you need to enjoy your stay and the approach along the bumpy, twisty Scoor Road just prepares you for slowing down, taking your time, looking out for the local wildlife with plenty of sheep and cows as well as red deer, pheasants and birds of prey along the way. Feel re-energised after our stay on the beautiful Isle of Mull.’   Belinda Sept ’20

‘I was looking for somewhere to stay that was off the beaten track to escape for a few days, and Scoor House was perfect and I felt very much at home. The property was calm (if you exclude the lambs springing around), and was a wonderfully peaceful place to enjoy a morning coffee before exploring the island. On this part of the island there are so many stunning beaches and an incredible number of very varied walks nearby. It is also relatively close to the ferry to Iona, and the boat to Staffa (incredible!). Driveway is as advertised. I made it in a Fiat 500 without any problem (I just took it slow and picked my line).
Sophie was super friendly and responsive. She made me feel very welcome and cared for. At the same time I had the feeling of privacy during my stay.
1000% visiting again – I think I left a part of myself behind on Mull, and Scoor was the perfect place to experience it’.  Laura May 23

It was a long and bumpy track to get there but by god it was worth it! After a days travelling, we were greeted like long lost family by the hosts Sophie and Ian. The cottage itself was roomy, comfortable, clean and quiet with a lovely garden with absolutely spectacular views and sunsets.
The garden itself is pretty and homely.
After five days (which was not enough) of beautiful weather and stunning scenery we left feeling refreshed and having had the most wonderful experience of Scoor and Mull.
As we left it felt like leaving family behind as Sophie and Ian had made us feel so at home.
We will be back hopefully one day and until then we have everlasting memories of this dear place’.  Karrena June 23
