This is some feedback from guests staying in April 2018....

Cafe Fish good as ever; Mish Dish ok, nothing special; Galleon Grill disappointing (tough steak); Mediterranea just opened by a new young couple and well worth trying; Glenforsa same as ever, recommended; Boathouse, Ulva good for a light lunch outside if weather fine; Hebridean Lodge(top of Tobermory) seriously good, easily the best on Mull.


Salen Village is 15 minutes walk from Salen Pier.
