Gruline Home Farm B&B: "Superb Food, Gracious Hosts, & NOT touristy" Island of Mull Hotel Tip by OnTheWing

Island of Mull Hotels: 18 reviews and 36 photos

Meals here rival anything you will find at 5-start restaurants in Edinburgh. Middle-of-the-island setting makes this place a haven from tourists who, by nature, are more inclined to find rooms in the coastal towns such as Tobermory. At the Gruline, you can watch White-tailed Eagles circle the mountain in the distance, see working Border Collies, enjoy cordials with other guests (usu. Brits, or Aussies who came to see the nearby mausoleum of the so-called "father" of Australia), and by charmed by Angela, your hostess, a delightful woman with a brilliant sense of humor. Would recommend getting one of the guest cottages as opposed to an upstairs room. Picked by "Bon Appetit" as the best place to eat on the Isle of Mull. You should rent a car and take it with you on the ferry to Mull. Be aware that roads on Mull are single-track and quite harrowing!!

Unique Qualities: Fantastic food. Owner and host Colin Boocock is a magnificent chef. Granted 5 stars by the Scottish Tourist Board, 5 Red Diamonds by the AA and RAC "Little Gem". Be aware that meals are an extra fee above and beyond the cost of the room.
