Outdoor Centre and Self Catering Accommodation
Tavool House on the Isle of Mull stands in a unique wilderness setting some five miles from the main road. It is situated alone on the south coast of the Ardmeanach Peninsula overlooking Loch Scridain to the Ross of Mull, a paradise for photographers, artists, ornithologists, geologists, archaeologists and botanists.There is a rich array of wildlife in the area and good fishing to be had nearby in lochs and rivers.

The majority of Roses Project residential courses have been based at Tavool House since 1990. It is the perfect venue and location to allow groups the chance to have time and space for themselves, to experience respite and relaxation and to learn without distractions from other groups (unlike other centres, groups have sole use of Tavool House for the duration of their stay), away from busy built up areas and without too many of the trappings of modern technologies.
Our catering is legendary! We offer some of the most plentiful, wholesome and nutritious home cooking generally served in outdoor centres. We cater for medical and religious dietary requirements and discuss needs prior to arrival.
The house is also available for a self catering retreat, holiday or a family celebration.
The accommodation is simple and well appointed. The house is centrally heated, with showers, a large kitchen, an open fire and a good drying room. Tavool House will comfortably accommodate a typical group size of 16 but can accommodate up to 26.
Getting to Tavool is easy on the regular forty minute ferry service from Oban followed by a 23 mile drive along single track roads and tracks. NOTE: The access track to the house is very steep in places, rough and unsuitable for small vehicles. Drivers using the track do so at their own risk and Hebridean Pursuits Ltd will not accept responsibility for any damage incurred.
Full details of the ferry timetable can be found on the Caledonian MacBrayne website https://www.calmac.co.uk/destinations/mull or call 0845 6000 449, advance bookings are advisable.
