          Hi, I'm due to stay here with my partner at the hotel for one night over the weekend and we are planning to go over to the Isle of Mull on the day we check out. I was wondering if anyone knew if the hotel would allow you to leave any bags and collect them later? We only will have two large rucksacks?

          Hi You can leave your luggage in the Dining Room and collect it later on in the day after you get back from Mull.
