Despite this time of year we have enjoyed great weather this week, the thermometer even tipped 20C whilst we were at Laggan Sands (a gorgeous volcanic sandy beach) enjoying sausage and bacon cooked on the camping stove ... Happy holidays! Chris, Katherine, Luke & Eliza Jarvine - October 2010

Although Salen is a small village, with an approximate population of 200 we have everything here that you may require during your holiday. There is a Spar shop 100 yds along the road, a Post Office, an Hotel (with a local pub). There is also a petrol-station, a garage, a doctor's surgery, a Church of Scotland. We are 10 miles from Tobermory (the "capital"), 10 miles from Dervaig, where the famous 43 seater Mull Theatre was based (now in Tobermory) and 10 miles from Craignure, the main ferry port on the Island. Being situated at the narrow part of Mull the west coast with its lovely sandy beaches is easily reached.

Salen is about 9 miles from Ulva Ferry from where you take a small boat over to the wonderful Isle of Ulva. We are a little further from the Isle of Iona, but as the journey is full of spectacular scenery and the chance of glimpsing a golden or sea eagle along the way, we are sure you will enjoy the time spent travelling.

There can be few places to rival this idyllic island for sheer variety of landscapes - peaceful harbours, dramatic mountains, historic castles, crashing waterfalls - it's all here for you to discover. Experience the utter tranquillity of Mull, the ideal place to unwind and enjoy those activities which are so pleasurable; walking, cycling, kayaking, sailing, golfing, fishing, pony-trekking. All these and more can be enjoyed on Mull.

If you prefer more leisurely pursuits, trips to Iona, Fingal's Cave (Staffa) and the Treshnish Isles are available. Or discover what Mull is rightly famous for - its wildlife - the magnificent sea eagle and golden eagles, - follow the progress of the mull eagles on the RSPB website - the secretive otter and the amusing seals, or why not join one of the safaris or whale watching trips and really find out about the animals that live here.
