Looking out over Tobermory village, its harbour and the bay to the Sound of Mull, The Western Isles Hotel has had a long and interesting history.

Built in 1883, the Mull hotel served as Navy billets in the Second World War.

It also housed the acting talent when Powell and Pressburger filmed I Know Where I’m Going on the island.

These days, it is in the expert hands of a quartet of private hoteliers, who are intent on restoring this beautiful historic hotel to the standard of excellence it once enjoyed.
