Ten reasons to visit Mull and Iona in October
Visiting out of the busy high season is a great time of year to stay in Fionnphort and explore Mull and Iona, getting all the benefits of the wonderful natural environment of the Ross of Mull and a stay at Achaban House, while benefitting from a reduced price. Read 10 good reasons to book an October break at Achaban House:
- The roads and most scenic places are quiet; it’s easier to explore the whole island of Mull – with few cars on the one-track roads.
- There is lots of wildlife around on Mull and this is one of the best times of year to do some spotting. We can advise you on the wildlife hotspots of Mull, and you will see many rare bird species in and around Achaban House and Loch Pottie.
- Iona is just a 10 minute ferry trip from Fionnphort and the Abbey is open all the year round, but without the large number of high season visitors.
- The weather can be just as good in October as in the summer here on Mull. The landscape is always stunning and exhilarating and we recommend getting out whatever the weather.
- Sunsets and sunrises are perfectly timed for breakfast and dinner
- With no light pollution enjoy dark skies and identify the stars and constellations
- There are several good walks from the front door of Achaban and many others if you travel by car. We are happy to provide all the information you need.
- After an invigorating day out, come back to the welcoming warmth and comfort of Achaban House and relax by a cosy woodburning stove.
- Our guest kitchen is well-equipped and perfect for the convenience of preparing your packed lunches for a day outdoors or cooking your own dinner for a cosy night in.
- Our accommodation discount and guest kitchen to do your own catering make an October break at Achaban House very affordable
