|Barn Cottage and Stables
Barn Cottage and Stables are converted stone barns forming part of the
original Gruline Home Farm. Gruline is on Mull’s west coast just a couple of
miles from Salen. We are centrally located in a quiet position off the main road
amongst trees and farmland close to both Loch Na Keal and Loch Ba.
We live with our small family of animals
away from the hustle and bustle, where time can go as quickly or slowly as you
please. Our dog, pet sheep and chickens
are always happy to meet visitors
Visitors have their own entrance and are
welcome to come and go as they please. We have just two rooms - our twin room
has a wash hand basin ensuite and its own private bathroom (which has a bath
with shower over) is just a few steps along the hallway. The twin beds can be
joined to make a 6 foot double if preferred. The family
room, which can sleep four, has an ensuite bathroom, again with bath and shower
over. Both rooms have tea and coffee making facilities, hair dryers and irons.
Electric blankets, boot dryers, a travel cot and high chair are available if
required. Visitors can relax in the guest lounge with satellite
TV, DVD, and CDs and a selection of books and games”.

our best to provide any special requirements. For the comfort of all
visitors we are a non smoking establishment. Well behaved pets are

|The Isle of Mull
The Isle of Mull offers a variety of interests for visitors
* Stunning scenery whatever the time of year. Peaceful lochs, majestic
cliffs, wild moorland, excellent walking whether you just want a gentle stroll
or perhaps something more strenuous.
* Wide variety of birds and mammals just waiting for you to find them. If you
are new to the island join one of the boat trips or wildlife tours who will show
you the best places to look.
|* Small picturesque villages and colourful Tobermory all
guarantee a friendly welcome. Lonely deserted settlements illustrate the
more poignant history of the island and its population.
* For those with an interest in geology, Mull has some of the oldest
rock formations in Europe with of course Ben More rising over 3000 feet in
the centre of the island.
* There are castles and gardens to explore or simply drive along the
miles of roads to take in the scenery. No need for an excuse to stop for
tea and cakes.
