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.

The Isle of Mull has always been on our wish list and at last my daughter and I have eventually got there. We stayed in our camper-van at the Sheilings site. A beautiful site with stunning views our pitch was right at the front looking onto the sea so as the sun rose and set we had first class views. Reception staff were very friendly and helpful the toilet block and shower facilities were spotless. Constant hot water, hairdryer provided and clothes washing facilities. A unique drying system also provided for clothes. A very central location for catching the Oban ferry and for visiting the many and varied sites on Mull. We thoroughly enjoyed out time at the Sheilings and would certainly recommend it but don't take our word for it try it for yourself.

I arrived pretty much at the last minute, having settled on a site which is midway from most places on Mull. Despite being near to the ferry terminal at Craignure it is a scenic site with plenty of choices to pitch your tent, including some within ten yards of the water. Craignure itself has all of the basics covered with a mini mart, coffee shop, petrol station, post office and pub. Mull is mostly about the scenery with the nearest attraction being Duart Castle, which is home to the Clan MacLean and in itself worth a visit.

Staff were as friendly and helpful as you could wish for. The reception building is open 24/7 for campers to get access to local information, and they have free wifi which works around the site (my tent was fifty yards away and my reception was good enough). Tent pitches are covered in astroturf which takes getting used to, but it does mean that each pitch is very well drained and your tent comes back pretty clean. Check your pegs are secure and guys tight, and all will be well (this was just a precaution, in four nights I had no problems).

There are multiple washrooms, with showers (free hot water), washing machines and tumble dryers (token operated), a free freezer for your cooler packs and good dishwashing facilities. In the upper field are two shielings (a kind of giant plastic tent) used for social activities and games.

And most of all is the location. I was lucky with the weather and the site being quiet in late September, but even so I can't do anything other than give this site a great rating

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!
