Many of our guests love Scoor so much they want to share their experiences with others. Here is just a small selection of comments we’ve gathered from the guest books we leave in all the properties:

‘This place is in an amazing location. Remote, beautiful – a step back in time. The long track is not a problem – don’t be put off by that. The place was very well equipped, super-warm – fantastic get-away. Book it!’
Abigail – Sept ’18

‘A beautiful place set in gorgeous surroundings in a fabulous location – just 15 minutes walk to stunning beaches and a short drive to Iona, Bunessan and several other magnificent views and places to visit in the wilds of the Ross of Mull. The Garden Cottage is well equipped, clean, cosy, and can withstand the worst of weathers – we sat out the the howling wind and rain of Storm Ali in the warmth and comfort of the lounge/dining room/kitchen! Scott rightly highlighted a couple of things for which you do need to be prepared- the first is the last couple of miles to the cottage is down a narrow and very bumpy road – take it slowly! – and the second being the weak wifi and mobile signal; O2 seems to have better coverage than Vodaphone at the cottage, and we got reasonable wifi at the pub in Fionnphort. Also important to note that petrol stations (including those in Salen and Craignure) close at 6 pm – so fill up during the day!’

Had a fantastic stay at Scoor House (Shiaba) and would happily stay again. The track leading up to the house was no bother but is slow going so would allow a bit of extra time. The house was clean, well equipped and very cosy in the bad weather.

‘If you are seeking scenery and wildlife watching, this is the place! We saw herds of red deer and golden eagles on our walks around the farm. From the path to Shiaba, you can see across the Ross of Mull, truly spectacular!’

We had a fantastic and peaceful stay at the Scoor House (Cnoc Mor). The location is very remote which is perfect as we could experience nature and wilderness at it’s best. We had a lovely view from our kitchen / living room watching birds, chickens, bunnies and other farm animals with hills and sea in the background. There are absolutely gorgeous beaches in the area – you just need to find them, which makes it even more of an magical experience. Other visitors were very friendly and we even been donated marshmallows for our barbecue.  The place has everything you need for your stay, we just needed to remember to bring our own towels which wasn’t a problem at all as we came by car.  Also, the house rules were presented very clearly which made things much easier. I am already dreaming of returning for a longer stay and would not hesitate recommend Scoor to visitors.

“The best place in Britain to run a field trip from. Great geology, weather, landscape, 24 happy and exhausted students – off home tomorrow with lots of great memories.”

Beloved Scoor

Our first day here, the sun was shining
Which showed so clear what I’d been pining
A place of peace with vistas stunning
With eagles soaring and wild deer running

With rolling hills and mountainous crags
Where history walks with the antlered stags
And distant memory floats on the winds
Through ruined crofts and other hinds

Whispering words to those who listen well
Tales of long ago of those who won and those who fell
Come gently and quietly with the growing shadows
From the ruined village, cairns and burrows

I have tried to record their stories as they told them
Write a tale of ancient history with my modern pen
And what’s better for inspiration! I couldn’t ask for more
Than to finish what they started, here in beloved Scoor
