About Us

/About Us

Andrew & Karen (plus the dogs, Eva and Poppy)

Like many visitors to Mull, we were enchanted by the beautiful scenery and amazing wildlife, as well as the friendly and hospitable locals. We were regular visitors to the island before we finally took the plunge and escaped our 9 to 5 jobs on the mainland, for a new life in Tobermory.

We purchased Willow Cottage in August 2015 and have been carefully restoring and renovating the property into a comfortable Bed & Breakfast – we  look forward to sharing with guests our knowledge of the island and hope that guests will leave Mull with many fond memories of their stay.


The Dogs – Eva and Poppy

We have 2 Cavalier King Charles Spaniels. Eva is 4 and a half years old. Poppy was born on 1st February 2018, so is still very little. Both dogs are very friendly and look forward to meeting and greeting our guests. Eva’s favourite pastimes include going for very long walks, chasing golf balls, pulling enormous sticks out of water and taking part in the local dog agility classes. Poppy’s favourite pastimes are chasing Eva, going for walks around Aros Park and carrying sticks.

Stayed here for a weekend and just wow!!! Amazing location with warm friendly people. Rained one day but other two were glorious. Would like to thank Andrew and Karen for making our trip so special and we can’t wait to come back next year!

We spent a week here before moving on to Uist to visit relatives and we have to admit it was hard to leave! We had seen pictures of Tobermory before but never realized just how beautiful it really is. Thanks Karen for making our stay so enjoyable, oh and give Eva a big hug from us!

Ferry Timetables


At Willow Cottage B&B we offer guests a delicious complimentary continental breakfast including a freshly prepared seasonal fruit salad, a range of cereals, world famous homemade Granola, yoghurts, fruit juices, tea/coffee and toast with a choice of jams and preserves. We strive to source our food from sustainable and ethical suppliers, often from local, small scale or organic producers. We always try to cater for dietary requirements – just let us know in advance of your arrival so we can try to source the right ingredients.

Willow Cottage B&B is a proud supporter of local businesses. For those guests who would prefer the traditional cooked option we work with The Scullery café on the Tobermory seafront. Our guests can take advantage of a free cup of tea or coffee with their breakfast order on production of a Willow Cottage voucher. The Scullery offers a full breakfast menu and is open from 9.00am. For additional details check out the Scullery website via http://www.thetobermoryscullery.co.uk

Willow Cottage B&B has stairs to both en-suite bedrooms. If you have difficulty with climbing stairs, please consider this prior to booking.

A deposit of £50 is required to reserve your room. The remainder of the payment is on the morning of departure.

Check in time – 4pm – 7pm is the usual check in time. We understand that this may not suit everyone so just let us know when booking when you expect to arrive and we will do our best to help you. It is always helpful to know which ferry guests are booked on, so we can guestimate their time of arrival.

Check out time – 10am. This allows us time to get rooms changed over before new guests arrive. On occasions we may be able to accommodate later check outs, please let us know at the time of booking if this is a requirement. If required, luggage can be left at Willow Cottage B&B on the day of check out, which will allow you to enjoy the day without having to carry your luggage with you.

Complimentary Continental breakfast is served between 8am and 9am.

We operate a no smoking policy and ask guests not to smoke cigarettes, cigars or use electronic cigarettes on our premises.

Hyper-allergenic bedding – All bedding is hyper-allergenic, including pillows, duvets and mattresses.

Sorry, but no pets or mini-humans (under 16 year olds). We have our own dogs, Eva and Poppy, who are very friendly but prefer to be centre stage with all visitors and would feel slightly jealous if we welcomed other furry creatures into their home. We only allow over 16’s to stay at Willow Cottage B&B as we want to ensure the grown-ups that do stay with us can enjoy a thoroughly relaxing and peaceful holiday.

Willow Cottage B&B is located on an island, surrounded by water. The only way to get to Mull is to get a ferry, charter your own boat, swim or use an aircraft (plane / helicopter). Unless you are very fit or very rich, most people opt for using one of the 3 ferry options provided by CalMac. Please remember to book your ferry tickets if travelling via Oban with your car.
