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.
