The Isle of Mull food produce has an excellent reputation and can be sourced locally. For self-catering, seafood such as lobster, langoustines and fish freshly caught that day is often available from Iona Seafood. From the land, wild venison and hill-fed lamb and beef can be sourced from local crofts. For eating out, there is the local restaurant and pub, the Keel Row, and fine dining at the Ninth Wave Restaurant.

There is also a bunkhouse on site with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, its own private area and car parking.
