Carnaburg Guest House
Carnaburg Guest House is one of the the original 18th Century coloured houses on Tobermory’s 'Main Street'. This 200 year old building was originally within a row of fisherman's cottages and overlooks Calve Island, The Sound of Mull and the Morven Hills beyond.
Now under new ownership we would like to offer you a warm welcome to our newly furnished and decorated rooms. Carnaburg Guest House is an ideal base for exploring Tobermory and all that the beautiful Island of Mull has to offer.
Tobermory, Isle of Mull
Tobermory is the capital of, and the only burgh on the Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides. It is located in the northeastern part of the island, near the northern entrance of the Sound of Mull. With a current population of approximately one thousand, the town was founded as a fishing port in 1788, its layout based upon the designs of Dumfriesshire engineer Thomas Telford.
The name Tobermory is derived from the Gaelic Tobar Mhoire, meaning "Mary's Well". The name refers to a well located nearby which was dedicated in ancient times to the Virgin Mary.
During World War II, Tobermory was home to Royal Navy training base HMS Western Isles under the command of the legendary Vice-Admiral Sir Gilbert Stephenson. The so-called Terror of Tobermory's biography was written by broadcaster Richard Baker, who trained under him.
Many of the buildings on Main Street, predominantly shops and restaurants, are painted in assorted bright colours, making it a popular location for television programmes, such as children's show Balamory. The burgh boasts the Mull Museum, the Tobermory Scotch whisky distillery, the Isle of Mull Brewery, and An Tobar, an arts centre, while the Clock Tower on the harbour wall is a noted landmark. Just outside Tobermory (based in Drumfin) is the Mull Theatre which boasts youth and adult dance and drama groups and hosts a wide variety of performances.
