Fabulous weekend on Mull. Great welcome at the campsite and a fabulous pitch next to the beach. Loved this site and looking forward to a return trip. Yes the toilet /shower blocks are compact but after a long days walk at 6ish in the evening you can shower in peace.

Love Love Love this campsite! Location is fantastic and scenery is out of this world! Been here 3 times but it was our little boys 1st, he's 3 and he loved it too. Shower cubicles and toilet facilities are very clean, staff very helpful and friendly. Our son loved the local park and the swing and sandpit on the site....

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.
