• About But ‘n’ Ben

    Situated on Ardura Estate World Heritage Site, renowned for its otters, delightful cottage with open fire, is ideal rural retreat.

    On the sheltered south-east coast of Mull, between Craignure and Iona and overlooking the River Lussa and Loch Spelve, these two wonderful properties (refs USK and SAAX) enjoy a glorious secluded position within the 4,000-acre Ardura Estate. Bordered by the River Lussa to the north and east, and protected to the west by the masses of Ben Fhada and Glas Ben, the estate is home to highland cattle and sheep, as well as an abundance of other wildlife, including red deer, eagles, buzzards, seals and otters. The estate is recognised as a European Heritage Site for its otter population and ancient Caledonian oak forest. Craignure (6 miles) has a food shop, garage, post office, tourist information centre, pub and restaurant, and is the car ferry port to Oban. Ardura is a great base for visiting Iona, Tobermory and Duart Castle. Excellent hillwalking in the area. Nearby are a swimming pool, gym, health spa, golf courses and sandy beaches. Shops 6 miles.

    Step to entrance. Open-plan living/dining room with open fire, rugs on tiled floor and fitted kitchen with tiled floor. Utility. Steep stairs to first floor: Two bedrooms; one double and one twin, each with built-in wardrobes and Velux windows. Bathroom with ¾-size bath and toilet.

    The But n Ben is a lovely cottage, nice and quiet. The cottage is nicely furnished and once the log fire is burning its very cosy. Would recommend the cottage if your looking for somewhere to chill and relax. Some good walks in the area, and lochs to see.

    Amazing holiday on the beautiful island of Mull. It was made extra special with our lovely accommodation at the Butt and Ben. We kept waiting on Goldilocks visiting as it looked like the original 3 bears cottage. It was straight out of a fairytale ❤

    Lovely cottage ,great location! Friendly helpful people I charge of the cottage. Any queries quickly addressed. Bathroom was a challenge with 3/4 bath tub where having a shower was nearly impossible due to low cealing height without soaking carpeted floor . We loved the cottage,well equipped and sunshine for the week with BBQ available made the week amazing . Found sea otters ,eagles and visiting peacocks . We would love to return ! Thank you

    Wonderful cottage in stunning location. Would not hesitate in recommending. A 6 mile drive to nearest restaurant/pub but that’s what you get for a remote setting. Would definitely go back again.

    Fabuous location ideal for wild life photographers saw our first sea eagle gliding from woodland local spar shop 6 miles from cattage and petrol station and nice pub serving good old fashoned food , super places to visit on island, We stopped off at the local post office on our way to iona and ended up having soup / roll over looking a spectacular bay , Tobermory Wow if you have not visited this place its a must colourful cottages and houses lne the pavement , but the best thing about Mull is its unspoilt natural wild island if your looking for night life and raz a ma taz this holiday is not for you but if you love the wild rugged scenerey an abundace of wild life walking then we can really recommend this handsome rugged island ,
