Lovely site next to the sea. Excellent staff and very helpful.

Toilets and showers very clean but could really do with hotter water and some pressure.

But overall 10/10

We have been to this site on a number of occasions whilst touring the Western Isles.

We are grateful for their flexibility that after booking and paying for our 3 nights, our van broke down but we were able to adjust the dates to visit when it was fixed. Well done and thank you Shielings.

It is a superb location on the shore of the Sound of Mull, with good facilities, close to the ferry and central to the island.

A professionally run site with a great location, friendly helpful staff, good loos, showers and washing up facilities. We got a pitch overlooking the harbour.

A 5 minute walk around the headland and we saw sat watching an otter feed for 15 minutes!

Highly recommended, especially if you love wildlife and you can get a pitch overlooking the bay.

The site is in a stunning location overlooking the ferry terminal at Craignure. On arrival we were given a plan of the pitches and told what our number was, nice spot set slightly back but sill with views across the bay.

After setting up it was soon apparent that our's and the adjacent pitch were right next to the water points and the camp kitchen, for 3 days we endured people walking through our pitch with dishes to wash, containers to fill and motorhomes reversing into the area behind us to empty and replenish water.

The site is in new ownership and they are making improvements, the newly refurbished shower block is excellent apart from the pressure in the showers and around 10 seconds per push on the shower button (I hate them things).

A well placed site, very near the ferry terminal

As had been mentioned before the views are stunning

The organisation was poor. We had pre-booked with our caravan, told where to pitch. Great spot, stunning views

Then an hour later, when everything is set up, water tanks filled, electric sorted, etc. We are told to move?? Moved to a pitch opposite the amenities block. It was like being on a car park. Motorhomes emptying and filling. People filling aquarolls at all hours of the day

It's also the most expensive site I have used in Scotland. It's handily placed for the ferry. However, I wouldn't use it again

This is a nice site ! Although quite expensive it's siutated in a Stunning location, with friendly wardens. The site is situated right on the water overlooking the small ferry terminal.

There is a pub (which we were going to have a meal in but having called for an earlier pint and been sold out of date crisps and the look of the food wasn't good), 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 but water pressure was very low (took age's to fill the tank on the motorhome) The site also has free wifi.

The site has recently changed hands and the new owners are looking to make significant improvements in the future !

We'd seen this Site many times as we took the ferry up the Sound of Mull and always wondered what the military style rows of tents were. Now we know, they're a sort of pre-erected tent village.

The Site itself doesn't seem to operate with such precision though. Staff on location don't seem to have control of all the bookings and pitches and we had to change pitch partway through our stay. Others just took vacant spaces.

The Site itself seems to have been there for some years and is well maintained if facilities aren't brand new. On Site staff were very approachable and helpful.

Craignure isn't our favourite end of Mull. The one shop isn't great and one of the cafes had closed. Its probably good for bus connections to Iona & Tobermory though.

Wish we'd stayed longer at this lovely site! The views are great, even if like us you are not given a pitch at the seafront. There are plenty of trees, bushes and little hills to break up the site and give it an intimate feel.

The 'Shielings' in the title seem to be a number of tents of various sizes. We particularly liked the mini-sized ones which were useful to dry and air our washing when we went out, as a precaution against leaving the items out in possible rain.

The staff are friendly and helpful. The location, just nearby the small arrival jetty for the ferry from Oban, and close to a nice pub, is perfect.

There are walks you can do from the site, along the shore (lots of wildlife to see) and to 2 nearby castles. The free wifi even reached to our pitch. The location is at the start of the single track road to Fionnphort, from where you get the little ferry to Iona - a trip not to be missed!

We have not visited this site for several years, on arrival we found it had hardly changed.

When we last visited the pitches on the front could only be used overnight as the small railway to the castle used the area during the day for parking - now the pitches are used as part of the general site.

The loos / showers were clean, water got but maybe not as hot as it could be. With only 2 showers and a reasonably full site there was the odd queue. The facilities are old, could maybe do with updating and upgrading.

Staff are great, friendly, helpful and always around for questions.

The pub at Craignure is just a few minutes walk, lovely home cooked food. There is a Spar and two coffee shops also within 5-10 minutes walk.

We did find the areas around the hard-standing very muddy and boggy, but the pitches themselves are well kept each with ehu supply. There is a moho empty and full point and a chem disp as well as a few water taps across the site.

This really is a lovely site, the views over the Sound of Mull are incredible and the site is perfectly placed for visiting all the major places of interest on this amazing island.

Brilliant site with stunning views and good facilities. The staff were very helpful both on arrival and during our stay.

The communal space with wood burner was a much appreciated bonus during a very wet week.

The pub, play park and shop are all within walking distance which is also a great asset.
