We have not visited this site for several years, on arrival we found it had hardly changed.

When we last visited the pitches on the front could only be used overnight as the small railway to the castle used the area during the day for parking - now the pitches are used as part of the general site.

The loos / showers were clean, water got but maybe not as hot as it could be. With only 2 showers and a reasonably full site there was the odd queue. The facilities are old, could maybe do with updating and upgrading.

Staff are great, friendly, helpful and always around for questions.

The pub at Craignure is just a few minutes walk, lovely home cooked food. There is a Spar and two coffee shops also within 5-10 minutes walk.

We did find the areas around the hard-standing very muddy and boggy, but the pitches themselves are well kept each with ehu supply. There is a moho empty and full point and a chem disp as well as a few water taps across the site.

This really is a lovely site, the views over the Sound of Mull are incredible and the site is perfectly placed for visiting all the major places of interest on this amazing island.

Brilliant site with stunning views and good facilities. The staff were very helpful both on arrival and during our stay.

The communal space with wood burner was a much appreciated bonus during a very wet week.

The pub, play park and shop are all within walking distance which is also a great asset.

This beautifully positioned site enjoys views over the Sound of Mull. Although it was busy when I stayed I never had to queue to use the facilities. There is a Campers' kitchen which has a kettle, microwave and wood burning stove. All facilities are well maintained. There is a small supermarket within a five minute walk of the site. You do need your own transport on Mull as the bus service is infrequent Remember to bring rock pegs as the pitches are astroturf. The owners are very helpful and welcoming. Torrential rain, typical Scottish weather caused me to pack up my tent sooner than planned!

Just returned from a fabulous week here. Amazing views from the top field (no cars allowed apart from arrival and departure means it stays emptier and safer for children - all in all a good thing we felt) of the mountains on the mainland and the ferry coming in and out. So close to the ferry port meant that we drove overnight from Wiltshire, got the 7:45am ferry and were pitched with the kettle on by 10am. You can hear the ping bongs of the ferry (and my phone kept on trying to connect to Calmac WiFi!) but not to a distracting volume. Easy reach of most of Mull. Tobermory (the inevitable Balamory visit with a 5 year old!) Fionnphort for Iona, Ulva ferry port for Ulva and puffin tours and lots of geocaches near by if that's your thing. Craignure stores are super helpful and have a petrol station (cheaper than Shell on the M6 on the way south!) although the stores up the road in Salen are slightly bigger, and Tobermory obviously has more. I can't recommend this site and the whole island highly enough. Only 2 things I would change. 1 is I'd love to have camp fires at pitches, although I recognise that this would bring its own problems, and 2 I'd like to eliminate midges. ;-) Oh and their web site for some odd reason doesn't give the post code. It's PA65 6AY, although you don't really need it to find the site (left out of the ferry, left opp the church and follow round) it is helpful when ordering a birthday card to be sent to site! Am I allowed also to sing the praises of Old Post Office Lochbuie please. They delivered to site to us the most scrummy delicious food for our last night for a quarter of the price of eating out. Highly recommended.

Stayed here for 5 night's and was given a great spot at the front of the site overlooking the sea. The site is minutes from the ferry terminal and is a good base for touring the island. The facilities are kept very clean and the showers are always hot. Staff are welcoming, helpful and friendly. Nice pub 5 mins walk and a well stocked supermarket is not much further opposite the ferry. Would definitely recommend a visit.

What a fantastic campsite this is ! Stunning location, excellent facilities and friendly wardens. The site is situated right on the water overlooking the small ferry terminal. There is a pub and village shop within walking distance, the toilet and shower block is rather small (2 showers & 2 cubicles in each) but was always very clean and warm. The site also has free wifi which was very handy as there's no 3G signal on Mull. We would definitely recommend this place.
