Hideaway Lodges, comprising 3 Scandinavian Timber self-catering lodges, each sleeping 2 adults, are graded 4 star by Visit Scotland. We aim to provide a luxury self-catering holiday experience for adults in a beautiful and unspoilt natural environment.
Our self-catering lodges are situated in Drumlang Woods at Gruline, 2 miles from the village of Salen. Being located in central Mull, Hideaway Lodges provides the perfect base to explore the island for walkers and cyclists alike and is also an ideal location for bird and wildlife enthusiasts. We are passionate about our environment and happy to provide details of walks, cycle rides and great places to spot wildlife. Also, if you are a keen cyclist, we provide a bike shed to store your bicycles.
There are self-service launderettes at Salen and in Tobermory and we have a washing machine in the shed onsite which guests are welcome to use with the exception of periods of low rainfall where the shed will be closed to conserve drinking water. We are also 10 miles from Tobermory, the main town on Mull where there are shops, restaurants and bars. Both the Spar shop in Salen and the Co-op in Tobermory are open 7 days a week so there is no need to worry if you need to buy some provisions on a Sunday.
Please note: Mobile phone reception is poor on the west side of the island but Vodafone will work at the lodges. Also, TV reception on the west side of the island can sometimes be impacted by weather conditions and can therefore not always be guaranteed. There is no wifi at the lodges but there are plenty of cafés & bars on Mull with free wifi.
