Dervaig,a truly unspoilt Highland Village, Mull

Gillian and I truly enjoyed staying in the village. No yuppification here on the West coast of Mull. Just a High Street of cottages, a Post Office and shop, a stream running through the village. Its been like this for nearly 800 years. Lovely Church of Scotland with a rather beautiful tower.Before restoration the Church was regarded as colder and wetter indoors than out, but it has been completely restored.

Then there is the Bellachroy Hotel with its lively bar, and really good meals. You won't beat the food and the service here. Someone in the house has been doing it since 1608. This makes it the oldest Inn on Mull.

John and Gillian
