A large informal site, no marked pitches, just grassy sand dunes. It was very busy, almost at full numbers, when we were there but still felt reasonably spacious.

The site is spectacular, around a series of shallow sandy bays with tidal islands and views to Iona.

Facilities are limited, small shower block at the entrance (up to 600m from the far end of the site) and a couple of portaloos out on the site. No problem for us in the motorhome of course.

We found it handy for iona, walking into Fhionnphort for the ferry.

There are masses of birds to be seen, I saw a redshank on a telgraph pole at about 10 paces!

Overall a wonderful spot.

We hadn't booked but received a warm welcome at this amazing site adjoining beautiful beach and spectacular views and sunsets - best appreciated if you camp on the edge of the beach. We arrived in a stiff wind (force 3) and opted to camp back from the edge of the beach where there was a bit more shelter - however, there isn't a lot of shelter anywhere and if the wind had been much stronger we would have struggled with our frame tent. Site is huge so plenty of space and seemed to be well drained with plenty of flat spots with the grass kept short by grazing sheep. Great beach for kids and bay which is good for canoeing. Site is very well maintained with really well built facilities - hot showers, toilets, washing area and freezer. Also two portable toilets in the camping area. The lowering of the ferry charges has meant more people coming to Mull this year so with 60+ families on site when we were there, facilities were stretched at times. Although we didn't have to wait, there were queues for the two gents toilets in the main block. Wished we had more time. Great value, magical spot and highly recommended.

Great location for 'wild camping' (with some facilities, no elec hook-up) in a field with direct access to the beaches and views of the Sunset and Iona to die for. Peaceful.

Situated on a working sheep farm, early to find, great surface on access road, warm welcome, booking not normally required.

There are 2 port-a-Los for campers on the campsite next to a chemical disposal hole (with no water flush!), the main toilet and. Shower block (2showers & 2 toilets/Ladies/Gents) and dishwashing area is at the farm house, a short walk from the campsite. When busy with campers, might be not enough.

This was our first 'wild camping' experience in our MH for 2 nights without an electrical hook up. Not a problem, was just a bit worried about the battery drain as no previous experience.

The #SimpsonScottiesGlasgow loved sitting out watching the world go by, we had a pair of otters swim to the beach on the last morning.

We'd go back, peaceful as no Vodaphone or most other netwok signal, however my wife had a weak O2 signal

We cycled the 1mile undulating, generally uphill back to Fionaphort to visit Iona, it was a great ride back on the way home.

After a two day journey to get here the welcome was warm and friendly and the relaxation started there and then. Being in a tent with some blustery weather on the way the advice was to pitch away from the ridge and, if possible, to use the rocks and the car as wind breaks. A flag flies in the middle of the site to show you which way the wind is blowing.

If, like me, you are going in a tent pay attention to any weather warnings and pitching advice, peg down well with good sturdy pegs and you and your tent should come out of it unscathed.

In the field itself there is very basic facilities, a couple of toilets and drinking water. Walk back up to the farmyard and there are more toilets, showers and a washing up area. I also discovered on the day before I came home that there is a freezer for freezing your blocks in, however it is in the outer vestibule of the gents toilet block so as a lone female traveller I would have been a little hesitant at using it when the site was busy.

The whole site is very relaxed and you soon find yourself slowing down and just watching the world go by. Great until you are trying to get to a boat trip or ferry crossing. Also whatever you do, do not go anywhere on site without your camera, rainbows, sunsets, the beach, the wildlife all pop up at every opportunity.

Things that some people (not me) might see as disadvantages to the site. It is a working farm so there will probably be livestock in the field. When I arrived it was ewes and lambs, they were moved on a couple of days later and replaced with a couple of tups. It can be very disconcerting to hear your guy lines twanging when a sheep decides that they are the ideal thing to scratch and itch with. The other disadvantage is the size of the site, its long and thin so if you are at the far end you could be half a mile away from the main facilities block in the farmyard, the people I saw at that end often used a bike to travel between their pitch and the facilities.

The beach has lovely white sand and if the sun is shining the water appears to be aquamarine. At low tide there is plenty of space to explore and at high tide the gentle slope is ideal for paddling or launching canoes/kayaks.

Another site that has made it to my revisit list and one I thoroughly recommend if you want a relaxed place to visit.

Remarkable site, pick your own pitch. Good directions from main road and called at the farmhouse, lovely welcome, shown all the facilities, lovely shower and toilet block with extra temporary toilets further into the site. 7 per person per night is more than reasonable. The location is superb as you are situated on the top of the beach with crystal clear water and white sands. Excellent walking to Knockvologan where you will see the most beautiful beaches, try it you wont be disappointed. Iona ferry terminal is a short walk, and shops and pub there as well. Only disappointment when emptying the waste at the Jolly Roger flag, the stench on lifting the manhole cover was terrible, not for the weak stomach ones.

Absolutely stunning location and well worth the drive to get there. The site is set right on the edge of the beach with marvellous views across to Iona. We were pitched almost on the sea edge where we witnessed breathtaking sunsets.

The site is very large, pay 7 per adult and pitch where you like. The site is fairly exposed so choose your pitch well and peg down properly. Our tent stood well during one night of very high winds but others were not so lucky. The facilities are clean but few and far between - only one water tap that I could see, a toilet block with 2 showers and toilets for each sex and a Portacabin with one for each in the middle of the site. There is also a dish washing area and basic chemical disposal point. Think if it as wild camping with access to water and clean loo/shower. Quiet at night. Dog friendly and the children (and adults) seemed to be having a great time frolicking and playing about in dinghies/kayaks in the sea.

Just over a mile walk into Fionnphort where there is a small shop and pub. Ferry here to Iona and Staffa tours.

This site is a long drive to other places on Mull with marvellous scenery en-route to everywhere. But well worth the effort. Idyllic site
