Winter stays on Mull are worth considering, especially with lower ferry fares and fewer visitors. Mull is perhaps at its most beautiful in the Autumn and Winter. After the more restrained spectrum of Summer greens, the bracken turns a rich, chocolate brown, the grasses take on a bronzy hue and the Mountain Ash bursts with bright red berries.
Wildlife fans are well-catered for throughout the year as island regulars including seals, eagles, red deer and otters are always here. However, an autumn or winter stay on Mull also feeds the soul for walkers and anyone just wanting to relax in beautiful, wild surroundings.
And with clear skies on crisp winter nights, you might even see the Northern Lights!
Winter stays offer
• Stunning, crowd-free beaches
• Miles of scenic coastline
• Incredible starry skies
• Snow-capped hill hikes and a Munro to climb
Cosy, comfy, good value accommodation
Traigh Mhor holiday cottage, on the south western Ross of Mull, offers good value rentals and comfy, cosy accommodation throughout autumn and winter starting at £475 for a week’s stay – although we welcome shorter stays too.
As the nights draw in, the cottage really is cosy with A-rated double glazed windows and central heating. We have comfy sofas, feather duvets, hot water bottles and a lovely open fire to nurse a glass of whisky by. Ready for a digital detox? Then you can cosy up with a good book after a day in the great outdoors, get out the Rummikub or challenge the family to Gin Rummy. But if going cold turkey on facebook or a week without EastEnders is a step too far, we’ve got TV and wifi if you want it.
Book your Wild West week in the Hebrides now and see what the BBC Autumnwatch presenters have been raving about for years! We can’t guarantee an eagle fly-by or a rain-free stay but if you’re after a great escape, Mull could well be your perfect destination.
