A Guide to Sea Fishing at The White House of Aros 

Posted October 18, 2019
From the Aros River Estuary to the Boat House Pier there are many opportunities for guest to enjoy a spot of sea fishing. A rod, line and a spinner or fresh bait is all that’s needed to be landing your first fish.
If you don’t have your own equipment you can buy very reasonably priced fishing-tackle-kits (rod, real, line, floats or spinners) and bait at Tackle & Books in Tobermory.   They have a wealth of local knowledge to share on all aspects of fishing around the whole of the island too, whether it be freshwater rivers and lochs or sea fishing.
Along the Aros Estuary flounder are common and can be caught using frozen peeler crabs. Occasionally bass can be landed too.
From the pier mackerel are top of the list in the summer months. They come up the shoreline in huge shoals in search of food and offer good sport using light tackle. Just a spinner or feathered hooks is enough to be landing mackerel if you time it right. Summer evenings are a perfect time. And of course, all of our self-catering properties have a BBQ just waiting to cook the mackerel on!
Alternatively, a float with lugworm bait is excellent for pollock, and they can put up an entertaining fight. There are many species of fish to be caught throughout the year, all offering their own challenges and all having their preferred bait. But whether the fish are biting or not, some relaxing time spent with a rod and reel is good fro the sole. The wonderful views along the Sound of Mull from the White House of Aros Estate will stay with you long after your holiday is over.

Driving on the Isle of Mull. A guide by Luxury Mull

Posted July 24, 2019

Mull is a wonderful island to explore by road. The scenery is breath taking in every direction and the roads are generally quiet, at least when compared to more heavily populated areas of the United Kingdom. However, with the majority of roads around the island being single track and only wide enough for one car from verge to verge, a slightly different approach to driving is needed.
