Our booking/arrival experience was exactly the same as Mrs E (see review for July) so maybe the owners need to organise this side of things a little better, but aside from that everything was wonderful and they were very helpful when we met them. We took pitch 1 which turned out to be an excellent pitch as it had great views and yet was fairly sheltered from the wind. We enjoyed watching the small birds on the feeders, and there was also a buzzard (looking for a snack?) which came down to the fence post a couple of times. The sea eagle and the deer made appearances at a reasonable distance - my husband spotted a really well antlered stag - but even with no wildlife, this is a great site for relaxing and taking in the views. Dog walking off site is along roads, but they were quiet enough at this time of year to deploy the long lead, which gave him plenty of scope to sniff around. Be aware of sheep appearing on the road round any corner at any time!

We can concur with the previous review that it is in a fine location and that the limited facilities were spotless. The views were a treat to wake up to and it was so peaceful. We used it as a base for three days cycling the north west of the island and it was ideal for that.

The Spar shop in nearby Salem was really well stocked and our visit to Tobermory was a delight.

Our only downer was the blocked chemical waste disposal point, which was a real stomach-turner, though Sam did attend to it once notified.

Excellent all round. The hard standing pitches are very well constructed. There are ample water points and electric hookups. The toilet and shower were both impeccably clean. The washing up area had ample hot water and a good drying space. The site is located in an excellent birdwatching site. The owners are pleasant, helpful and flexible. Although there is only one loo and one shower, we had to wait on only one occasion for either.

We were touring Mull and I chose Crannich Farm as it was fairly central and near to where we wanted to be on a couple of days during our 2wks in Scotland. I e-mailed the owners prior to the start of our holiday as I was a bit worried we weren't booked in as I had no e-mail confirmation. We WERE booked in so I could relax!

When we arrived at the site we were unable to find anyone to check in with although we rang the bell(s) at the farmhouse. There was a board with names and pitch numbers on but ours wasn't on it leading me to panic! Neither of us had a mobile signal so we hung around for a bit hoping to see someone before driving part way to Tobermory to find a signal. Unfortunately the board with campers names and pitch numbers hadn't been updated - Robin did apologise but had it been updated we could have been settled and with our awning up during the time it took us.

As others have said, the site is small with 6-9 pitches and a few statics for hire which are in a separate area to the touring pitches. It's very peaceful and with lovely views and scenery. We actually spotted a sea eagle in the distance from the site. However, you do need to drive (or cycle) as there's nothing nearby. Yes, there is only one shower and one toilet but the shower is really good and it's free!

I was really pleased when Sam pointed out the electric socket in the dishwashing/ drying/ information room. Although we had hook up, it meant I could use my hair straighteners and stand directly in front of a mirror rather than struggle in the campervan! There were several bins for recycling and the site was well kept.

The pitches vary in size and I think we had pitch 5 which I'd probably request again on a return trip to Mull. So yes, we would stay here again.

We stayed here on our wet fortnight in Western Scotland. We only had one night, so probably didn't see the Site to best advantage. The mist and cloud were so thick, we couldn't see much, in fact. There are half a dozen or so pitches with ehu. The Site itself is a couple of miles down a single track road, with passing places, off the main Craignure - Tobermory Road at Aros. Like others, our pitch wasn't flat but nothing too difficult to manage. What facilities there are first class but they are limited. The shower is probably the best we've ever had but there's only one for everyone on Site. Same story for the toilet which also houses the only washbasin. I guess it could be pretty busy when the place is full.

We travelled to Mull for a short break. Just the 2 of us and 2 dogs in a motorhome.

Lovely small site in the middle of Mull close to forest for walking and cycling and for relatively easy access to the rest of Mull by road. Good facilities. Friendly owners and the Miss World of dogs, Amber! A treat on her own.

Pitches on hard standing fairly level. Clean toilet, shower and drying/washing facilities. Wifi in caravan next to main house. Water, power and TV connection (not used) all beside each pitch. Only minor downside was access to grey waste not easy from a motorhome unless you have a long extension pipe or a removable caddy.

If you want to be near shopping, pubs, restaurants it probably isn't the place for you but if you like the quiet life with great night skies, bird watching, meandering about at a leisurely pace it is a gem.

We will definitely go back.
