Location and views were absolutely first class. We were pitched on the upper site looking out to sea.

The facilities are OK - with the showers being a little erratic.

The pitches are fairly close to one another.

Staff were helpful.

The local pub - Craignure Inn - does good meals including a very nice breakfast

Would say that it was at the pricier end in terms of value.

This site is ideally situated right next to the ferry terminal at Craignure. Within walking distance was the local Spar shop, a pub, café and a very good charity shop (worth a visit).

There were lovely sunsets over the sea but we were a bit disappointed with the lack of wildlife from the previous reviews of this site. It was also very busy when we were there and we would've preferred something a bit more secluded but that's only our opinion. The facilities provided were well more than you would usually expect and included a tent with TV, log burning stove and freezer, microwave and kettle for communal use. We did site and catch up on the news on TV one evening.

Toilets & showers clean and friendly staff.

Nothing to fault it as although it was busy it was in fact the Scottish school holidays.

Location: Lovely location with stunning views of the sea and mainland, only a few mins drive from ferry terminal.

Pitches: Spacious and all have views with separate area for tents. (we got lucky and got a pitch at the front overlooking the sea and beach)

Facilities: Excellent and very clean, handy drying tents, separate dish washing facilities (mainly housed in nice eco friendly structures). Even has a small games room which is handy if wet weather.

Comments: Owners very friendly and helpful and even though it was heavy rain/wind when we arrived still took the time to explain the site. No shop on site but village only 5-10 min walk with nice pubs, cafe's etc. And Spa shop.

All in all a great site, lovely location and very peaceful.

leaving the ferry at Craignure, we arrived at the campsite five minutes later there were friendly staff in reception who directed us to our pitch We had requested a sea view and were not disappointed, we could see right across the bay where otters swum up and down regularly, a bonus in itself. The site is very well maintained, with easy access to the shower block and the laundry, all kept very clean, all the staff were friendly and nothing seemed to much for them, our stay here was very enjoyable. Shops are limited, a small shop at Craignure is very well stocked and there is fuel available, there are plenty of places to eat close by, we found the site a good base for exploring the island. We will go back next year, looking forward to it!

Really special campsite with super original features i. E Drying tents and free WiFi spaces and indoor games and meeting places. Walk round the headland from the campsite and enjoy the otters swimming the Oystercatchers screeching and the romantic view of Castle Duart. Shop, cafe and eating pub nearby and if you are lucky enough to get a front pitch the sea view is amazing with the CalMac ferries coming and going to Oban. Everything is spotless and they try very hard to please, even posting back forgotten towels! We'll be back!

I must admit that I was slightly disappointed with the Sheilings. I think it could be because the owner has now retired and it lacks the personal touch.

Good points - the location. Overlooking Craignure Harbour so gorgeous sunsets and lots of activity with watching the ferries. The facilities are spotlessly clean.

Could do better points - maybe I am being petty, but the hairdryer in the ladies was broken for the duration of my 6 day stay. I could borrow one of theirs but had to keep taking it back which was a pain. Also one of the shower's drain was blocked meaning that it overflowed all the time. I would have thought that for a four star site, maintaining facilities and making sure they are repaired is essential.

The pitches which face the harbour are small. They are ideal for a motorhome or camper but not for a caravan with awning.

Mull itself is wonderful. Probably some of the most friendliest people I have ever encountered. The tourist office at Craignure is fantastic. Friendly, knowledgeable staff who take pleasure in their job.
