Seaview Bed and Breakfast accommodation is a traditional style Hebridean cottage built in the 1860's from local Ross of Mull pink granite and is the closest 4 star Gold en-suite accommodation to the Iona and Staffa ferries. We are a minute's walk from both ferries, and ideally located in the heart of the village of Fionnphort (gateway to the Sea Kingdom and the Isle of Iona), close to all the local village amenities.

Seaview is run by husband and wife team John and Jane Noddings, ably assisted by their chocolate Labrador Retriever Megan and joined in October 2010 by one of Megan's daughter's
Fionnphort village Isle of Mull from top of Tor Mor quarry with Tinkers Hole and Erraid in thebackground Lainie. John and Jane honour a long tradition of Hebridean hospitality and make every effort to ensure your stay is as comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable as possible. Many of our guests tell us how reassuring it is for them on their arrival here at Seaview that not only do we meet their expectations but we often exceed them as well, and our website accurately reflects what we say we can and will offer our guests. We look forward to helping you get the most from your stay.

Established since 1990, S
eaview is an award winning VisitScotland quality assured 4 star Gold bed & breakfast accommodation provider and has been the holder of the Gold Award from the Green Business Tourism Scheme since August 2005 in recognition of our excellent environmentally and ecologically friendly business practices. We are the only 4 star Gold bed & breakfast with a Gold Green Tourism Business Award on the Ross of Mull, and only one of two throughout the whole of Scotland.

Seaview is in the heart of the village of Fionnphort, conveniently located between The Ferry Shop & Post Office and The Keel Row restaurant and pub. The bus stop is one minute’s walk away and you can park your car on our private off-road car park in front of the house. Through the windows, you can gaze for hours upon the white sands of the beach below and across the azure blue waters of the Sound of Iona to the historic Iona Abbey and Treshnish Isles beyond. Our four cozy “island” bedrooms, Soa, Lunga, Iona and Erraid are all individually furnished and decorated providing all the home comforts you would expect, and, if the weather turns a little stormy, then you are welcome to spend the day browsing through our fine library of Scottish and local history books and guides or relax and enjoy the panoramic views across the Sound of Iona to the Abbey and Treshnish Islands.

If you know the story of Fingal the giant, who strode from the giants causeway in Ireland to our nearby magical Isle of Staffa, then you will know of our very own legendary Fingal's Breakfast remembered and enjoyed by all who pass this way. Our hearty, scrumptious breakfasts and seasonal specials are without a doubt the perfect start to the day, designed to set you up for hours of exploration, discovery and adventure on this wondrous magical island of Mull.

Evening meals are served at Seaview in April and September (by prior arrangement only) - traditional, wholesome, rustic, delicious country home cooked food using fresh, local and seasonal produce straight from Scotland's natural larder. In 2014 we received VisitScotland's 'Taste Our Best' award for our commitment to providing guests with local food. As part of our Green Business ethos, we are members of the Slow Food Business Supporters Scheme whereby we have made a commitment to use local organic food whenever possible and believe in supporting our farmers and crofters, fishermen and other food producers on the island. This helps to reduce our carbon footprint and cuts down on 'food miles' which in turn means that the food is fresher and tastes much better. Our specialty is Seafood Dinners - quoted by one guest on tripadvisor 'as one of the best he had in Scotland' - and having dined at two of the best seafood restaurants in the whole of Scotland this guest claims we were better! Our seafood is locally caught, available by request and subject to the day's catch at the pier. Between May and August, evening meals are available from either the pub and restaurant next door or other good restaurants in the area which we are happy to recommend and make reservations for you.

Experience the magical islands
of Mull, Iona, Staffa, Treshnish, Erraid, Ulva, Gometra and Inch Kenneth all with their own unique charm and history. We can help you plan your itinerary so that you see as much as you can while you are here. A minute’s stroll to the pier and you catch the ferry to St Columba’s Iona, but why not also catch the boat to Fingal’s puffin covered Isle of Staffa.

For links through to boat trips out to Staffa and the Treshnish Isles have a look at our Attractions page - with John's many years experience fishing and sailing around these waters he will advise on weather and sea conditions for you on your arrival and recommend when the best time would be to go and then arrange your trip for you.

White tailed sea eagle fishingF
or wild life
enthusiasts, the Isle of Mull is the UK's wildlife capital for white tailed sea eagles, golden eagles, puffins, corncrakes, otters, red deer, dolphins, porpoises, whales and seals. The Isle of Mull has an abundance of wild life resident throughout the year as well as migratory birds, with plenty of opportunities to see these beautiful wild animals, sea creatures and birds in their natural habitats. The RSPB Sea Eagle viewing hide has been re-located this year in Glen Seilisdeir off the B8035 road from Pennyghael to Salen scenic route, much nearer for our guests to visit and view a nesting pair of sea eagles and their chicks.
Wild life tours run by Wild About Mull
is based at Pennyghael and run by local residents Bryan Rains and Joy Hardy with whom we work closely and who can help you make the most of your stay with us on Mull - one of guests came back to tell us 'the trip was a life-changing experience'.  Follow Bryan's adventures on his blog Beg Bits for a unique insight into the wild life on Mull and some fabulous photos.  Further information can also be found on the Attractions page.

he Ross of Mull
is a haven of hidden treasures such as the Lochbuie Standing Stones, Carsaig Arches, Burg Fossil Tree, fossil leaf beds at Ardtun, Ross of Mull Historical Centre, a galaxy of powder white beaches, and throughout are gems galore for the intrepid and less adventurous explorer. Mull is a 'mecca' for geologists and for those of you who just love collecting rocks and pebbles and marvelling at how this beautiful island was created then have a look at the geology page.

For those of you who love walking, the Ross of Mull has some great walks on offer to suit all abilities. If you love the great outdoors, then this is the place to come. We both love walking and time permitting will spend as much of our spare time out and about - we have walked the walks on this website and can recommend all, some or the odd walk for you depending on your ability, time and the weather. Seaview is also a member of the Walkers Welcome scheme run by Visit Scotland and offer our walking guests all the facilities required to make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as we can.
