“Coldest night ever...”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2007

I'd just like to add to the review above - when we checked in we asked if the tent was heated and the receptionist just said 'no'. It was only the next day that we realised there were empty tents with heaters in them and we hadn't even been offered the opportunity to upgrade. It was alsot he coldest night I have ever spent, and cost us more than a very cosy night in the lovely tobermory youth hostel!

We had the worst night of our cycling holiday here. Under the impression from website that the tents were heated, instead we spent the coldest night I have ever experienced camping. The 'tents' were draughty as no inner and the tiled floor offered no insulation, and we were provided with very poor bedding. The heated tents were not being used yet there was no offer of an upgrade or opportunity to pay extra and actually be warm.
On an up note, Mull is beautiful and all other accommodation that we booked was great.

I return to the stay at the Sheilings every year since 2002.
Its family friendly and pet friendly with plenty to do.
Family run, the owners are polite, helpful and welcoming.
I normally book an ensuite sheiling for 3 nights. Its like a big tent with toilet, basin and shower plumbed in.
The choice to bring your own bedding and utensils or to hire is theirs is a great idea. Again, all at reasonable prices.
Plenty to do on Mull and the scenery is amazing.
From the sheilings you look down the loch to Ben Nevis.
The campsite has good amenities. Local shop and pub are only a short walk away as is the ferry terminal.

Stayed September 2006
