Cuin Lodge was originally built in the early 19th Century as a Farm House for the nearby Quinish Estate and became a Shooting Lodge after being extended in 1870. The House is situated on the side of Loch Chumhainn (Cuin) one mile outside the picturesque village of Dervaig and has stunning views across the Loch to the Hills and Mountains of Mull, all the way down Glen Bellart to the Islands only Monroe, Ben More.
Cuin Lodge has been tastefully restored to a Visit Scotland 4 star standard providing Guests with all the comforts of a modern home without losing any of its original character.
From the front of the House, it is possible to see Otters and numerous species of Birds feeding in the Loch, wild Geese grazing on the land between the house and the Loch, and Red Deer roaming the hills all around. (None of this is guaranteed as wildlife is just that, Wild). With excellent walks with spectacular views that can be taken directly from the front door, and all the peace and tranquillity the area can offer, it really is a superb spot to relax and enjoy the beauty of Magical Mull.

About the Isle of Mull
The Isle of Mull is the second largest Island of the Inner Hebrides and is connected to the mainland by three different Ferries which travel from Caignure to Oban, Fishnish to Lochaline and Tobermory to Kilchoan. The main town of Mull, Tobermory, was developed as a fishing Port in the late 18th century and it’s busy Harbour is full with boats of all shapes and sizes.
The Harbour is surrounded by multi-coloured Buildings and Houses, some of which feature in the BBC children's TV series, Balamory. At one side (Ledaig), there is the main Town Car Park with the newly built Harbour Association Visitors Centre and a small old Whisky Distillery. This small but successful Distillery was founded in 1798, is the only one on the Islandand has its own Visitor Centre.
The harbour is also very popular with divers who are possibly searching for Gold Bullion from the Spanish Galleon, Florida which took refuge in TobermoryBay in 1588 and, legend has it, was blown up by the local people. More can be found out about this and the rest of Mull's interesting and sometimes bloody history in the local Museum.
The economy of the Island is a mixture of Farming, Fishing, and Tourism and as eating out is one of the pleasures of any Holiday, Mull offers superb opportunities to enjoy fresh local produce in one or all of the many excellent Restaurants dotted around the Island. One of the best is in Dervaig, only a mile away from Cuin Lodge and only a 15 minute walk along the side of the Loch.
Due to its jagged nature, the coastline of Mull stretches for over 300 miles which is considerable for an Island that basically measures 35 miles by 35 miles. With spectacular views of Mountains and Sea Lochs,Mull is one of those rare and fortunate places which appears to be untouched by the passage of time with large parts of the Island still a genuine Wilderness.
Largely due to this, the Isle of Mull is one of the best places in Europe to enjoy unique and spectacular views of wildlife and especially the White-Tailed or Sea Eagles and Golden Eagles. As well as getting up close to these stunning Birds of Prey, which can have an eight foot Wing Span, plenty of other wildlife make Mull their home, including Otters, Red Deer, Slow Worms, Common Lizards, Adders, Toads and Frogs to name just a few, all widespread throughout the island. Basking Sharks, Minkie Whales, Dolphins, Porpoise, Grey and Common Seals and other cetaceans are also frequently sighted along the coast. Award winning Wildlife trips, either on Land or Sea, can be arranged to help make the most of a trip to Mull.
To make things even more interesting, why not also look into Mull’s pre-history by visiting one or two of the hundreds of Forts, Duns and Standing Stones there are scattered around the Island, quite often, only a short walk from the Road or Path.
Whatever your interest, whether climbing Mountains or relaxing on secluded Sandy Beaches, whether Whale Watching or Eagle spotting, there is something for everyone in Magical Mull.
