Situation
Killoran House is situated in a secluded and stunningly beautiful rural location on the rugged North West coast of the Isle of Mull.

The small village of Dervaig is about 1 mile distant, and lies at the head of Loch a'Chumhainn. It has a reputable and warmly welcoming hotel, post office and church.

Tobermory (9 miles) offers excellent opportunities for sailing and sea fishing, recently enhanced by new marina facilities. The town boasts a thriving arts and cultural scene, first class schools, an outstanding medical centre, a golf course, superb cafes and restaurants, enterprising shops and a delicious bakery. Mull has become a highly sought-after place to live: those seeking a change and pace of life have always been drawn to the island because of its wonderful quality of life and a strong sense of community. The island plays host to visitors from around the globe for various sporting and cultural events.

Mull is justly renowned for its extensive and varied wildlife, at sea and on land, and the fascinating geology which gives rise to its breath-taking land and seascapes. The world-famous islands of Iona and Staffa (with Fingal's Cave) lie close offshore. Mull continues to lead the way in eco-tourism (such as whale-watching) and the preservation of endangered species, in particular sea eagles and the golden eagles that inhabit the island's only Munro, Ben More (966 metres). It is a wonderful island for walking, climbing and on- and off-road biking, offering sightings of red deer, sea birds, seals and sea otters at every turn.

The Isle of Mull is one of the largest and most accessible Hebridean islands, with regular car ferry services from Craignure to Oban, Fishnish to Lochaline, and Tobermory to Kilchoan. Mull has a small private airstrip; Glasgow and Edinburgh airports offer domestic and international flights, and Oban has a main rail link.

Travel Directions
On arrival by ferry at Craignure, turn right on leaving the ferry terminal, and drive to Salen (10 miles). (From Fishnish, follow the road for ¾ mile until you come to a T-junction, turn right onto the same main road and drive about 7 miles to Salen). Just before Aros Bridge, approximately 1½ miles north of Salen, the road splits; bear left here for Dervaig (10 miles). When you reach Dervaig you will see a white church on your right at the T-junction, go left over the stone bridge. Follow this road for about a mile and the sign for Killoran House is on the left."
