Sometimes living here has unusual advantages, and Christmas on Mull is one of them – we can enjoy Christmas without being bombarded by the busy-ness and commercialism experienced on the mainland. Shopping locally for presents is a joy. There are so many Christmas crafts and produce markets, the annual switching on of the Christmas lights in Tobermory, friendly late night shopping! We can get all we need food-wise from local shops, with a little bit of forward planning. Actually there is no need to go further afield! And for those things on the child’s wish list that we cannot source locally, there is the joy of the online, from the quiet and comfort of ones own home, shopping experience!
Christmas and New Year Discount
We still have a few spaces left for Christmas and New Year, and are offering a 20% discount. Please get in touch directly with us before booking, as we need to make the booking and apply the discount for you.
As the end of the school term approaches, excitement in the household increases and we have time to enjoy the real Christmas on Mull – family, friends and 2 days without the ferry – this is what I love – it is as if the drawbridge is up and the real world is cast adrift.
Find out what’s on where!
Round & About, the monthly island paper, has details of church services held around Christmas. Our local shop in Dervaig is only closed for 2 days, like an old fashioned weekend!
Farmers still have to work of course. The hoggs inside the cattle building have to be fed. The sheep in the fields have to be checked. However come the evenings the drawbridge is up and there is definitely time off.
What’s the weather like?
We can never predict what the weather will be like at Christmas – will it be stormy and wild, with amazing and beautiful skies, scudding falling clouds, deep vivid rainbows and threatening clouds or cold and crisp, or even snowy? Whatever it is going to be we know we can retreat after a walk to the warmth of the wood burning stove – bliss.
It may not be forecast for snow this Christmas, but time will tell.
