This is a brilliant site. Lovely facilities, good location with Ferry Terminal a few hundred yards away, pub with good beer and food, Spar shop and very helpful information centre as well. On the site Rob and Ang are very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, always on hand to help. Lovely walks around the coast with frequent visits to the adjoining waters by the otters. Having ehu's are a great asset. This is my third visit.

Recently returned from a great stay at the Shielings Holidays campsite. The location of the site is fantastic as we arrived on one of the later ferries that day, only a few hundred yards from the ferry terminal and within the hour we were pitched and sat having a brew!

The pitches are as others have mentioned gravelled areas with astro turf coverings. This has some benefits and drawbacks, whilst having a flat surface and no mud around is great getting rock pegs and mallets to make sure your tent stays up is at times difficult.

We managed to bag a good position on the site in terms of our views which allowed us to get a great view of sunsets and see the ferry docking as well as the surrounding views. We were also close enough to the range of facilities the campsite offers.

The site did not have a shop on site but just down the road is a local spar type shop which sells everything you might need or a trip to Tobermory which has more shops. The facilities on site were always very clean and tidy and the staff were always on hand and busy keeping the place clean.

We would definitely return to Mull and the Shielings campsite even if it was for the beautiful views both at sunset and sunrise!

This is a really well organised site. Ideal for a stopover off the ferry or longer if you want to just put your feet up. The wardens are really friendly and full of information for your holiday. We were told where to see the eagles, we saw them flying, which I was desperate to see. You can actually see them with decent binoculars from the pitches at the front. Facilities are great, spotlessly clean, wonderful hot showers, ( after a few nights wild camping this was wonderful). Great pub close by, good food, real fire. After leaving the pub, right outside were 3 deer crossing the road in front of us. Would definitely return to this site.

Great site with excellent views close to the ferry terminal. Probably the best site on the island. Good clean facilities and the site is well cared for too. Local pub close by for meals as well as the tourist information centre for the Island. Also there is a Spar shop by the ferry terminal but the Spar shop at Salen is better (stays open later)and there is a good Co Op in Tobermory. Would stay again when over for the Mull Car Rally. Also a good location for exploring the delightful island of Mull.

A very large site with all the facilities, including pre-errected tents, catering for the masses. Not the sort of place we would select by choice and at 16. 50 pppn expensive too. Loads of toilets, showers and washing up tents. Several tv and socialising tents and even drying tents.

It is close to the ferry port so ideal for arrival and departure. The views from the top site are spectacular and the sunrise is worth getting up for! The pitches are 'carpet' over gravel. Sturdy metal pegs are available from the reception if you run on lightweight plastic.

The local pub is friendly and does food. The Inverlussa mussel farm sells a 2kg bag for 2. 00. Wow. The local shop is expensive, better to head up to Salen.

This site has everything some campers want. Unfortunatley most of the facilities were wasted on us but you still have to pay for them!

The location was excellent. Just a few minutes drive from the ferry terminal at Craignure which is perfect for those sailing from Oban to Craignure. Buses leave from Craignure regularly although we didn't use them the wardens did advice on public transport when asked. Craignure is an excellent location to stay in to explore both Tobermory and the isle of Iona. There is a tourist information office near by with leaflets of places to visit.

The views from the campsite were spectacular. There is a choice of camping on the bottom of the campsite were you can park your car near your tent or camping higher up where the views are better but cars have to be parked a short walk from the tents. We opted for the views. We were still allowed our car at our pitch for loading and unloading. Unfortunately we didn't see any otters or seals, etc. But the views across to the mainland were amazing.

The pitches are astroturf which made the pitches a little hard (we were glad we had picnic blankets to use as tent carpets). We do have sturdy tent pegs so it wasn't a problem for pitching. I would recommend to anyone going here who uses the pegs that came with their tent to look into upgrading them before coming here. The astroturf pitches were too small for our tent though we were adviced of the best pitches for our tent size and allowed to choose the one we wanted. We did end up too close to our neighbours. These pitches were ideal for a smaller tent than ours but no one seemed to mind our tent spilling over onto the grass. Most of the pitches are sheltered from the wind though when gale force winds were up to 44 mph (apparently this is very rare here) we ended up putting two extra pegs on each rope and taking our tunnel extension down.

There is a large community tent with washing up facilities, a TV, a wood burning stove, a kettle, a freezer for campers' iceblocks and a freezer for the campsite's iceblocks which campers could borrow at no extra charged. We were allowed to cook on our small stove which made things so much easier after our tunnel came down. We were also given permission to light the wood burning stove. There's a community campfire just outside this tent too.

Showers are free. Like with many campsites I'm not convinced there's enough toilets and showers for the size of the campsite but we never had to queue and they were always very clean.

We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful.

There is a spar near the campsite but it is very expensive and I would advice buying as many supplies in Oban before going to Mull. There are other spars on the island which are slightly cheaper and there is a small coop in Tobermory. There is a cashpoint machine in the pub near by as well as in some of the spars on the island and at Tobermory. Petrol wasn't as expensive as we expected and was about the same price across the whole island.

We did enjoy staying at this campsite and do plan to go there again next year.
