Glengorm Castle Mull
The castle, a country house built in the 1860s, is thrillingly sited on high ground in the northernmost tip of Mull overlooking the Sound of Mull, Ardnamurchan Peninsula, outlying islands and, vibrant at sunset at the far space, the Outer Hebrides.
Style & personality
Despite its grandiose appearances and proportions, this is very much a personal house, using an eclectic mix of pictures and furniture. The hallway, with big open flame, is supplied as a sitting area, and also the wood paneled library, using free choice of whiskies, is also at guests’ disposal. The beautiful Nelson family reside in another wing but utilize the principal stairs, adding into the joyful feeling of being at a much-loved family residence.
Service & amenities
Warmly welcoming Pam, who’s proprietor Tom Nelson’s helper, and whose spouse is the plantation manager, is very likely to take your reservation and greet you as soon as you arrive; a niece, neighborhood resident or family friend could serve your breakfast, smartly dressed in navy blue. In between, you create yourself entirely at home. Dogs are welcome; the household spaniels might come for a stroll with you.
The bedrooms are in the primary portion of the home, each with en suite baths – two are huge. They are beautiful, with fairly wallpapers, family room furniture and enchanting, strange bathrooms. Beds are comfy with luxury sheets; towels must be updated.
Food & beverage
Dinner isn’t served but breakfast is fit for a king, in a very long dining table which dates back to the 16th century, together with matchless views in the dining room’s bay windows. Tobermory, with different restaurants and pubs, for instance, famous Fish House, is just four miles off, although many restaurants near the wintertime. The estate café, open from Easter to November, serves local produce in lunchtime.
Value for cash
In the beginning the prices of its bedrooms (#160 to #210, decreased by #30 per succeeding night) struck us as pricey, until we’d spent time in Glengorm and realised what a very special place it was.
