Excellent quiet site just above town on outskirts, spent previous night wild camping at calgary bay car park as sign at entrance to campsite said no room for motorhomes that night.

Surprised at wide range of facilities on offer for campers, statics, motorhomes etc. Wifi enjoyed by my son and wife, 2 toilet blocks plus extra portaloos around site. Only 1 shower per sex but in process of creating extension to existing shower block. Wee camping bothy for shelter, relaxing, reading etc in camping area.

Dishwashing area just needed a wee tidy up, which I did wiping down, throwing out range dodgy sponges, recycling left over items, sometimes don't wait for others to do.

Liked that on arrival motorhomes/campervans park at sign and when go to speak to reception over bridge they can see what types of unti you have and direct you accordingly. All Motorhomes park in entance area, over the bridge only campers and statics.

Tobermory Campsite caters for all kinds of campers - tents, caravans, campervans, motorhomes and statics are all on site. The site is will laid out with an area for each of these. One major criticism which I saw from earlier reviewers is the lack of toilet and shower facilities. There is only one shower per gender, and given that the site might have 20 tents and 10 campervans during peak season (such as when we were there), this does mean queues are likely. They had heeded earlier bad reviews about the number of loos by adding a toilet block (so there's now 2 permanent loos per gender) and providing a number of portaloos around the site, but long-term they really need to do something about this if they are going to continue to allow campers who don't have those facilities on-board.

That said the site is pretty, with a little river running through it, and it's out of the hustle and bustle of the town. It does lack views somewhat but was convenient enough.

Stayed s whole week in August in a static caravan.

Caravan was very well organized and was us for our stay in Mull.

We had 2 small bedrooms, a kitchen with dinning table and a living area. Out side there is a small area and a picnic table. The caravans are close to each other so don't expect a lot of area for children to play around. We are used to stay in a tent where you have lots of space to run around and you meet a lot of people, so this was missing yet, with Scottish weather the prospect of a roof above our head and a dry warm place to pass the rainy days was very welcome

Tobermery is just 5 min drive away, where you can find lots of places for food and a supermarket, there is also a cub you can use to get there and back

I'm surprised no-one's reviewed this site in the last 2 years! So, as we stayed very recently I'm writing a review.

I e-mailed to check availability for 2 nights several weeks before our planned holiday and was told that yes, space would be found and to arrive before a certain time (5pm I think) to ensure this. As our plans changed slightly over our 2 weeks we phoned from the Calmac office in Craignure (we had no mobile signal) to see if we could book in a day earlier and for 3 days - this wasn't a problem.

We arrived earlier than their check in time but Angus spotted us and we were quickly allocated a pitch with hook up (on grass, but the ground was firm) by the stream flowing through the site. This gave us a really good head start in setting up and putting our awning up and making the most of the rest of the day!

Larger motor homes and caravans (as well as camper vans) are mainly sited on the gravelled hard standing area and it looked like more pitches for motor homes were being dug out.

We walked into Tobermory once pitched and settled - it's about a 25-30 min walk. We managed to get the last table for the 5. 30pm sitting at Cafe Fish - a MUST if you enjoy seafood! Angus had recommended a local taxi (Chris's Taxi, I think) so we got a taxi back, avoiding some of the uphill trek. As another couple were already in the taxi and also going to the campsite we were only charged 3. Otherwise, I think it would have cost 5.

There is only 1 shower per sex and I did have to queue. When I came out, more people were waiting. I don't know if there's any scope to expand and add a 2nd shower? We used the toilet block in the tent field as this was nearest to us, although there were a couple of portaloo's in the motorhome/caravan area.

The tent field had a fairly large shelter with books/toys, a fridge and power points as well as seating. The washing up area was also in this area. I felt that the washing up area let the site down as it was small and felt cramped and the water didn't run very hot. It was also grubby looking with several used cloths and old sponges just left above the sinks. Maybe this is something they can update and improve upon for next season?

One thing to be aware of (which we didn't encounter at our other 2 sites on Mull, or on Skye) were the midgies and other biting nasties one night! I guess the fact it was warm, still (no wind) and we were by a stream brought them out in force. We ended up with quite a few bites, despite covering up. Make sure you have plenty of midge repellent (Avon Skin So Soft and Smidge)!

The site also has several static caravans for hire as well as 3 huts.

I've not rated on child friendliness as we're a couple with no children.

Reviewer: Skipper10 4 reviews from this member

We camped here for 6 nights and were very happy with everything. We chose the site to be a bit sheltered, which worked fine.

There is a shelter on the campsite area with table, chairs, fridge and kettle; all provided to help backpackers and cyclists, plus others of course. There are power points in here too, very useful for phones etc.

The toilets are fine, as are the showers, there is only 1 shower per gender and 2 toilets, but it all worked ok whilst we were there.

The owners are working hard to provide more space for campervans which are very popular up there.

All facilities in nearby Tobermory, endless exploring to do. We saw Sea Eagle, Golden Eagles, an Otter and loads of other birds without paying for special trips. Iona is worth a visit, particularly if you walk to the sand beaches, very beautiful.

A small, sheltered site 20 minutes walk from Tobermory. Only one shower and two toilets for each sex but at this time of year we never needed to queue. A couple of small grass areas for camping so don't expect too much privacy. No views as surrounded by trees.

Facilities clean and tidy, owner very welcoming and we enjoyed our stay. There is even a shelter for cooking and socialising. Ideal spot for exploring the North of Mull.

The Co-op in Tobermory is well stocked and the bakery does excellent cakes. Try the chocolate too. The fish restaurant at the far end of town is worth a visit.
