A lovely little site on the beautiful isle of mull, it is set in a fab location, keep your eyes peeled for golden eagles circling overhead! The site owner was friendly and helpful, pitches were spacious and there are several 'shelters' which can be used by those in tents for cooking, eating etc if the weather isn't great. Electric hook up, waste water and chemical toilet disposal available. Camper an pitches nice and level with high fencing/screening on two side which makes a great windbreak for bbqing, toilets and showers lovely and clean and hot but only one shower on the side we were on which meant a bit of a wait in the morning, all in all a lovely reasonably priced site would visit again if on mull.

Really nice campsite. It was fairly quiet but still a few tents for this time of year. The price is very reasonable for the excellent facilities. Showers and toilets very clean, nice hot water. Where it is there are no views but because it is sheltered by trees it is better for tents, usually in Scotland in September the wind gets you. I had a look at the stands for vans and they looked fine as well. The owners were pleasant but not intrusive.

Best site on Mull if not the best site in the immediate area around the mainland. Apart from Seaview campsite at Benderloch which is on a par.

We had a good week at this site and enjoyed visiting many places on Mull and also went off to Inverness and Loch Ness for one day - it was a bit of a long day out but well worth it. The site was well run and at very reasonable price compared to other sites on the main land that would have charged considerably more, anything up to 750 or more at this time of year. Looking forward to going again at some time in the future and would fully recommend this site

Small site, but with only a few pitches available for motorhomes. There are 6 pitches at the top of the site, close to the road, and shielded from the road by some basic fence panels. So there's no view to speak of.

It's 1 1/2 miles from Tobermory, all uphill and mostly along country roads with no footpath. So it's difficult to get use of being based close to the pretty port.

Toilet and shower facilities were clean, but only seem to consist of one toilet and one shower.

It's alright as a stop-over, but I found it a bit disappointing as the closest site to tourist draw to Tobermory.

Warm welcome from Angus the owner. Lovely campsite with a small stream running around the edge.

Toilets and showers were immaculate, in lovely order and very clean. Good covered dish washing area and recycling area.

Used for 5 days as a base and covered the whole island including a trip to Iona.

Calgary beach is not far and is stunning, great for kids swimming, good barbecue facilities and public toilets.

2 min in car into Tobermory for all shopping, food, dining out etc.

Will definitely use again!

Tobermory camp site is about 1. 5 miles out of town so quite a long walk and up hill on the way out of town. So the pub where we had lunch suggested a taxi back! (We walked!)

Motor homes are placed in a separate section which looks like a recent addition. Access from the main road is at the second entrance and I would recommend you use this and walk back to reception to avoid a difficult right turn over the in side bridge (7 m long motorhome).

This area is a bit bleak and gravelly, with a suburban wood fence to screen the motorhomes from the tent overspill area and the road.

Toilets and showers are very clean with real hand towels! But only one shower for each sex is daft and a bit grim when you've paid 26. 00 for one night. Expect to queue more than at other sites.

Another issue is water: Big signs warning that the water supply has failed a test and there are only two locations where there is a safe filtered supply. So having got the motor home parked you then have to move it again to get water as the tap in the motorhome area does not have filtered water.

For the kids, nothing other than the river through the site. But lots of Balamory spotting in town, so ok.

In short, fine for a one night stop over, but as a place to stay for a whole holiday there are better more scenic places.
