3 Tiroran House Hotel
Isle of Mull, Argyll and Bute
PA69 6ES

It is a bit of a trip to get there and with each passing magnificent mile it seems less likely that there could ever be a fine hotel here, a speck on the map against endless lochs and hills. But there is. And it won the SHA Scottish Country House Hotel of the Year Award 2014. When at last you come to the drive, the pristine white house and garden fill the car windscreen. And something tells you that this was a good idea. The elegant, yet worldly-wise house is not at all stiff, but all is done as it should be. Beautiful bedrooms, a plush drawing room with fireplace, big books and squishy sofas.
