Excellent site 5 mins from ferry terminal with easily accessible pitch for the caravan. Facilities are clean and well maintained, with views over the Sound of Mull. Staff were friendly and helpful. Very relaxed atmosphere, and would definitely stay again.

The Astroturf pitches meant a cleaner tent when packing up. Facilities were top notch, clean and well stocked. A perfect...

Craignure campsite had the most beautiful and peaceful views as well as the friendliest staff I've met, and the facilities were also really great, with a wood burning stove and bike hire! Me and my cousin had the best camping trip yet (and we camp a lot)

We stayed for a few wet days in July. Campsite is well placed with lovely views. The pitches are well marked with AstroTurf squares which avoids them getting muddy. Fairly flat with no rocks and they lend you some larger pegs at reception to make sure you are well anchored. Just next to the ferry terminal so no travelling once...
