About us

The Bellachroy is the Isle of Mull’s oldest inn with seven letting bedrooms, a restaurant and community bar. We are situated in the north west of the island in the village of Dervaig, 11 miles from the islands main town Tobermory. Dervaig sits in gorgeous surroundings at the head of Loch Cuin. The island is a haven for birdwatching, wildlife and the great outdoors.

Dervaig is a very friendly but remote community. We are a 40 minute drive from the main ferry terminal at Craignure with a 45 minute ferry crossing from OBAN.

Our establishment is very seasonal and tourist based but also enjoys a good all year round trade with the local community.
All our food is freshly prepared on a daily basis using the finest locally sourced ingredients. We are lucky to have access to the best shellfish and fish from only a few miles away including lobster, crab, mussels, scallops and oysters.

We have a seasonal menu, which changes depending what is available from local suppliers so would suit someone with a genuine passion for ingredients and seasonality.

We are a family run and friendly business. We pride ourselves on our close relationship with our staff and the local community. It is important to us that the successful candidate can work positively and effectively with colleagues.
About the job
