We first saw Linndhu House on a frosty winters day in early December 2010 when we went to view it as potential buyers. The house had been looking for a new owner for a little while. We immediately loved what we saw and rushed back home to Aberdeen with lots of plans and ideas. By Christmas Eve and only a few weeks after our initial viewing we had became the owners of this beautiful old house. Since moving to the island in 2011 we have spent the intervening years tastefully and sympathetically bringing the house up to comfortable modern standards. Having enjoyed the house with our own sons for the past six years we felt the time was right to once again open the house to visitors. We are delighted to be sharing Linndhu with our guests and we look forward to welcoming you to Isle of Mull to find out for yourselves all that it has to offer.
Walk through the Linndhu grounds to the rear of the house and you find yourself in totally unspoilt open terrain with only red deer and soaring buzzards or even an eagle for company. There are plenty of walks on forest trails and for the hardy walker and with the help of a map you can explore the expanse of Spienne Mor, a 400m hill behind us which drops down into the long, sheltered Loch Frisa towards Dervaig. All this straight from the front door of the house, but of course there is so much more to see and explore on Mull either self driving or with one of the many wildlife tours and trips that are available throughout the year. We are more than happy to assist our guests with booking day trips and visits.
The grounds at Linndhu were once managed by a team of several gardeners and still bear glimpses of some of the late Victorian and unusual species of rhododendron and other shrubs which were brought to Aros Estate. We are keen to gradually bring the grounds back to their full glory as a longer term project. The peace and quiet, wildlife and dramatic landscapes which you will find yourself immersed in already provides a wonderful place to relax and wander and is a real oasis from the summer crowds and bustle of Tobermory.
