The space
This Tobermory self catering holiday cottage is located centrally in the main town on the beautiful Isle of Mull, one of the largest islands of the Scottish Inner Hebrides.

The house is situated behind the famous Mishnish buildings on colourful Main Street, set off from the street which leads to the upper part of the town, on the north side of Tobermory Bay.

Back Brae Lodge sits by the rock face which surrounds the natural harbour of Tobermory on all sides. There is an outside decked area with table and chairs for your use.

The spacious L-shaped upper floor combines the living/sitting area, dining area, kitchen and extra sleeping space with two small double sofa beds. The lower floor comprises a bedroom (with kingsize double bed), a bathroom and a lobby/drying room. Each floor is accessible through both the internal staircase and separate outdoor entrances.

We've had many guests in the past who were escaping hectic urban life for a while, but not necessarily for a holiday. Whether writing, researching or working professionally in some other way, Back Brae Lodge makes an excellent office-away-from-home for days or weeks of undistracted concentration, with inclusive landline and fast Internet connectivity.

There is Wi-Fi Internet access for your laptop, tablet or mobile phone. Bring your own Ethernet cable to plug into the wireless router if you prefer. There is no limit on usage. Tobermory benefits from a superfast fibre broadband connection to the mainland so the current download speed in Back Brae Lodge is around 37Mbps and upload speed is 9Mbps.

There is a 40" HD television with Freesat HD satellite live broadcast channels. We also provide on-demand TV with streaming entertainment services on an Amazon Fire TV stock. Free accounts include Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and BBC iPlayer. Disney+, NOWTV, Sky Store channels and Google Play Movies are also available for an additional charge, or for you to sign in to your own account. There is also a DVD player with a library of movies to choose from.

Playing cards & board games on hand include Trivial Pursuit and Scrabble.

Artwork in the house is by Shelagh Boyle, Ronnie Leckie, Bryan Evans, Angus Stewart, Claire Heminsley, Alex Bamford and Norman Wilkinson, with historical maps from the National Library of Scotland.

Where you’ll be

Argyll and Bute, Scotland, United Kingdom

The house is known locally as “the old chocolate shop”, since it was the original home of Tobermory Chocolate. The building was originally a mason's workshop before it was extended into shop premises for Tobermory Chocolate then Music Scotland. It was converted and renovated as residential self-catering.

In the heart of Tobermory, Back Brae Lodge offers easy access to the local Co-Op, arts and craft shops, a bank, museum, post office, four public bars, a range of restaurants, an arts centre... Experience everything the town has to offer, on your doorstep.

You can get your groceries and most other essentials in the Co-Op supermarket, 2 minutes' walk away on Main Street. Another useful nearby shop is the legendary Brown's hardware store, well known as an "Aladdin's cave"!

I run Back Brae Lodge self catering accommodation in Tobermory on Mull. It used to be a music shop, and before that it was a chocolate shop! While I lived in Tobermory, I regularly travelled to perform around the world with Scottish music groups.
