We stayed here on our last day before departure as it is within minutes of the ferry terminal at CRAIGNURE. We paid £25 per night (motorhome/2people/EHU) but the site is immaculate and worth every penny! There are drying tents for wet gear and toilet and shower block are clean and heated. All facilities are clean and well thought out. We...

For the price I would at least have expected a level pitch and the awning belonging to the vehicle on the next pitch came right across the grass to the edge of our pitch. The chemical toilet disposal facility is only suitable for people who have a cassette toilet as it is set too far back to be used with...

We are naturally sorry that you were disappointed with our site. Road Equivalent Tariff has reduced Mull ferry fares by 65%, with a great increase in campervanners, who like to be along the shore to watch the sea otters. Had you talked to us we would have tried to find you another pitch. The WiFi was bad luck. We have...

Just back from a week's stay. Beautiful location and such a well kept, clean site. No silly rules, except for late night noise. Easy to visit various places around Mull, and so near to the Ferry Terminal when towing a caravan. Great place, would definately visit again!

We came to this site after reading their website and reviews. Unfortunately the site was nothing like it's description. We stayed in our motorhome not the shielings ( tents ) but all the facilities were shielings. The showers, bathrooms, toilets and kitchens all built on concrete base which were crumbling away at the edges and weeds coming through, white plastic...

We're sorry you were unhappy with our site, and left us and Mull after one of the three nights you booked. Had you talked to us, we hope we would have resolved some or all of your problems, and could certainly have corrected some misapprehensions of fact.

Great place to stay. Staff friendly and helpful and the island is a great wee break away from the hussle and bustle of daily life. Shielings are a great way to camp for the infirm, older people who find it more difficult to set up tents either way it's a great idea and we will be back next year

Not sure why everyone raves about this site. The pitches are far to close together and there are not enough facilities for the number of people on the site. The owners are over charging and taking advantage of people arriving on the ferry.

We're sorry you did not enjoy your night with us. You did not give us a chance to solve your problems, so we could not agree to the refund you demanded.

Another perfect stay at the Shielings. This time round we hired an en-suite Shieling which is great if you are travelling with young children! The views across the water are great and a lovely beach to walk on from the site. Staff is very friendly and helpfull and next time in Mull I know where we will return....The Shielings!

This campsite is situated 200m from the ferry terminal at Craignure so if you want you can go over as a foot passenger. The site is on 2 levels. We were fortunate with the weather so benefited from being up on the upper level as the view was fantastic. Maybe if the weather was less kind the lower level would...

shieling clean and fitted out as described. Fantastic location, friendly and helpful staff. toilets and showers clean and never had to queue! 2nd visit and aim to go back. lots of room, only noise was the ferry coming in - but not a problem at all - shielings very weather proof for all that Mull can offer.
