Gourmet Dining at the Bunkrooms

Most people may not immediately associate bunkrooms holiday accommodation with luxury dining, unlike our guests, the d’Avellas from Italy.

A 3-night short break in the Ross of Mull

July 10, 2019

So many of our guests, as they leave, say they wish they had planned to stay longer. The Ross of Mull, and its offshore islands, offers plenty of opportunities for exhilarating days out.


Mist on the Moor behind Ross of Mull Bunkrooms

June 11, 2019

The weather in the Ross of Mull can be variable, in particular it can be windy, (which has the benefit of keeping the midgies at bay).  However, recently we experienced a most unusual evening mist which gave an ethereal light over the moor.


A spring short break on the Isle of Mull

March 3, 2019

March has arrived and the landscape is starting to burst into colour, with primroses, daffodils, gorse and willow catkins adding a welcome splash of bright yellow everywhere. The sounds of spring are in the air, especially the birdsong which is increasing by the day in the trees around the bunkhouse.


A walk to St Columba's Bay, Iona

September 26, 2018

One of the pleasures of staying in Fionnphort is to be able to pop over to Iona, such a tiny island but with a massive appeal. The silver-sand beaches of Iona are legendary, but in complete contrast, and with a fascination all of its own, is St Columba’s Bay.


The Island of Inch Kenneth

July 28, 2018

Inch Kenneth: Fionnphort is one of the special places on the west coast of Scotland which offers the opportunity to visit fascinating offshore islands. Iona, Staffa and Treshnish each have their own very distinct unique character and are the most well-known and popular of the offshore islands of Mull and fairly easily reached, with a bit of forward planning.


A good time to walk to Traigh Gheal

July 6, 2018

If you want to experience a slice of a natural heaven, try Traigh Gheal beach, accessed through the Tireragan Nature Reserve. The walk, which starts at Knockvologan, is one of the most challenging on the Ross of Mull as the terrain is rough and can be very boggy. However, with the exceptional dry weather for the past two months, this is a great time to take the walk to Triagh Gheal as the going is easier as it is less wet underfoot.


Some tips from a guest arriving by bicycle

April 4, 2018

Our intrepid cyclist guest Marianne left us this morning, heading back to Craignure.  She arrived two days ago, having first completed two sections of the “Wild About Argyll” bikepacking trail, with some family members, around 570K in total.  Having found herself in Oban with a couple of days to spare, she decided to head to Mull and cycle the length of the south of the island from west to east; Craignure to Fionnphort.


A winter walk to Uisken

January 21, 2018

Today we were blessed with one of those windless winter days with clear blue skies where the only place to be is the Ross of Mull.  The day started off well with a great view of an otter in Loch Pottie, the v-shaped wake clearly visible on the otherwise smooth surface of the water.  However there was a need to gather seaweed to fertilise the lazy beds in the newly created allotment and it was decided this was the perfect day for it. Uisken was the chosen destination as it has a handy small car park right on the beach and the winter storms had provided a large deposit of seaweed


Wild Swimming in Mull

May 13, 2017

The popularity of wild swimming has grown over the past few years and on the 6th of May this year an open water swim across the Sound of Mull was the great finale to a series of four swims for 2017 organised by Highland Water Swim. Our own Rachel Ball, manager of Ross of Mull Bunkhouse took part in the swim, with her friends Marianne and Kristen.


A Winter Wildlife Bonanza on Mull

January 11, 2017

We are always amazed at the amount of wildlife around in the winter months. We are extremely privileged to have daily visits from hen harriers, which hunt over the moor directly behind the bunkhouse and regularly quarter the grounds in search of a tasty vole. The spring can't come soon enough when we will hopefully be treated to the male sky dancing, and this pair raising young through the summer
