The friendly staff were so helpful and informative. We learned such a lot about Mull whilst there and had a very good cup of tea. Lots to see and do.

Stopped off on route to Iona. The chap there was friendly and knowledgeable about the local history. They have tea & coffee on sale (very good coffee & not silly prices! ) & a toilet..... will definitely stop off again on next trip.

The centre isn't huge; it is staffed by volunteers who were more than willing to help and offer suggestions in the local area. There is a small amount of information on display in the centre which is worth a read.

Warm welcome, informative display and helpful volunteer. A great way to get an overview of the history of the area or dig deeper if you have the time. Well worth a visit.
