David and Moira

Shieling Holidays goes from strength to strength. Turnover is up 42% on 2014, when it was valued at £925,000, still the asking price. But we are 82 and 78, and must hand over.

Many wish to buy, and we would prefer to sell. But we recognise that the banks are cautious in how much they will lend to those with no record of success in our unique field. So if you inspire confidence, we will supplement bank with owner finance of up to a third of the asking price, secured by a second charge.

Alternatively, buy a 20% share now, manage for us, and build funds from salary, profit share, dividend and share incentives. With a track record of two years of success, you will be able to apply for bank or cloud funding with authority. Please email David on


The Shieling Holidays Team

From the right: Kirsty and Chris, the Managers; Lewis Raeburn, Simon Campbell and Paul Deegan. In 2016 we had 1204 customer reviews. Almost all emphasized how welcoming, friendly and helpful the staff were. TripAdvisor gave us Certificates of Excellence in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017.



The site is rich in habitats of sea, shore, bog, grassland and woodland. This website suggests what to see, and when and where to see it. There's a map, and Reception has a check-list so children can tick things off as they find them.

Contributions to photos and database are most welcome. For example, the photos of the stag and the otters at the top of the page were both taken by customers on site. Many thanks to them. You can find details of wildlife tour operators on land and sea through the Mull Links page.


One winter David had to mend a timber lifeboat from a Clyde Puffer. He had to dry the timbers first. How, in winter in Mull? Answer: the Shieling Dryer. Wind passing the open ends makes a through draft. It has dried clothes ever since. Save money, save the planet. Hang it, forget it, just drying in the rain. For free. Try the Dryers out for free while you're with us. You can see that David Bellamy likes the smaller Family Dryer.
