Saorphin is a 650-acre farm on the Ross of Mull, situated two miles from the village of Bunessan. The beauty and tranquillity of this part of the Scottish highlands remains one of Scotland’s best-kept secrets.
Like most of the Ross of Mull, the farm is a beautiful and unspoilt wilderness. The land is mainly open hills, which are a haven for wildlife such as buzzards, golden eagles, owls, red deer, mink, seals, occasional sea otters, and many other smaller birds and animals.
The farm is in an Environmentally Sensitive Area. Over 400 acres is hill land suitable only for grazing, with another 30 acres of arable land, 50 acres of conifer plantation, and about 100 acres of recently-planted indigenous trees. There are a few sheep on the farm and sometimes a herd of wild goats, which move up and down along the coast, can be seen near the beaches
