Theres a warm welcome awaiting you at the Isle of Mulls newest campsite, our sign carries the message from our Celtic roots of Cuide Mile Failte (a hundred thousand welcomes) and we intend to live up to this. Offering Fully-Serviced Hard Standings, Grass pitches with Electric Hook-Up and Standard Tent Pitches, all with stunning views over the Sound of Mull and Mulls central mountains.

Recently installed on the campsite are our brand-new Male, Female and Disabled Shower & Toilet blocks. Laid out to form a small courtyard, guests can also access our double sink washroom that is sheltered around the corner.

The village of Salen itself, is steeped in history. St. Columba once preached from a rocky pulpit in the village centre, causing the river that runs through the village to be renamed ‘Alt na Sermoin, Gaelic for ‘river of the sermons! Sir Lachlan MacQuarrie the father of Australia was involved in huge improvements to the village during the early 19th Century. We also have an ancient Iron age hillfort and the ruins of a more recent (13th century) castle nearby.

All of our camping ground sits elevated on the upper level of our campsite, providing a fantastic seascape and mountain surround, 360-degree views overlooking the sound of mull, Salen Bay and the picturesque coastline of Morvern, Ardnamurchan and the central ‘Mull massive.

Throughout our grounds are a wide variety of plant life, our iconic sycamore tree sits besides our facilities with Rowan, Alder, Hazel, Birch and Willow also interspersed around the area. Those willing to venture further will also come across Bog cotton, Rare Orchids and a variety of mammals such as Mountain Hares, Red Deer, Seals and Otters. A huge variety of birds abound; Herons, Cormarants, Arctic Turnstones and Oyster Catchers on the shore with Snipe, Hen harriers, Buzzards and occasionally Sea Eagles soaring above.

Surrounding our campsite is 100 acres of shoreline for our residents to explore freely, and with easy access to Salen Bay you are well placed to launch small vessels such as canoes and sea kayaks. 

Nearby Attractions

Within the village itself, provisions for your stay can be purchased from The Spar, our local well-stocked grocers who are located in the centre of the village. Just outside of the village lies the Mull and Iona Abattoir, selling fresh local meat - a great option for BBQs. The Salen Hotel also offers a fantastic spot for dinner, or a drink in their elevated beer garden, while the Glenforsa Hotel lies 2 miles out the village providing lovely pub meals. For something slightly different, the Taste of Mull snack bar also offers a ‘to-go selection of breakfasts, lunches and dinners using local produce from across the island. At the bottom of the village lies The Coffee Pot, a lovely cafe offering daily baked cakes and light lunches.

With a fantastic central location, the village provides the perfect holiday spot to explore more of the island, with many roads leading in all directions.
