Last week my partner and I decided to visit the beautiful island of Mull and chose 2 camping sites on the island to stay on during our 5 day tour. Shielings was the second site of the two planned this way so that we could maximise our time on the island on the final day before joining the ferry across...

We were naturally very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We were also taken aback. Pitch 19 has a great view of the sea, is convenient to the main block, and has been pleasing motorhomes with awnings for over 30 years. But we now recognise that it does not suit a large new style awning which...

Shieling Holidays is a friendly location for camping and excellent if you have young children (we have a 1 year old and a 4 year old). As well as all the usual facilities they have a family bathroom with a bath which is just what you need after being in a tent for a week. Playground and walls nearby too....

We're glad you enjoyed your visit. I take your point about charging for under 5's. But might you accept that it helps provide the family bathroom you all enjoyed? Anyway, we hope we will see you again one day.

This place is one of the best camping sites, with spectacular views. Thesite is very clean with excellent facilities, slightly let down by the very small shower cubicles. Plenty of hot water, fantastic walk along the shore. Staff were brilliant too, helpful in every way.

We were planning on camping as a cheap way to see Mull, but saw the cottage tents as a nice alternative - cheaper than a hotel or B&B but without having to bring and pitch tents, also it allows you to sleep on beds rather than the floor. The cottage tents included kitchen, shower and toilet which was great, they...

We've been to the Isle of Mull before but this is the first time we've stayed at The Shieling. What a great setup and a fantastic view. Very comfortable tent like structures, with toilet, shower and a more than adiquite kitchen.

Second time I have been here and again was not disappointed. The shielings are well maintained, clean and exactly what you would expect. The shieling we had was without bathroom facilities but this is what we choose and the facilities on the site were good. Plenty of hot water, toilet roll and very clean. The view from the shieling was...

Stayed here for three nights in a camper van. Our position was right on the sea front overlooking the small ferry port of Craignuir. van My rating of the site as very good was because of this. Had we been any where else on the site and my rating would have been average. The electric hook up was a long...

Perfect location, 1 minute drive from the ferry and ideal for exploring the mid and southerly parts of Mull. 20 mile trip to Tobermory so still easily accessible. Pitch was great, toilet/shower block were very clean at any time during the day or night. Inexpensive. Maybe benefit from having an on-site cafe or shop but that might conflict with Spar...
