SHIELING OVERVIEW

Shielings are our 16 unique tiled and carpeted cottage tents, in 3 glorious acres overlooking the sea. On an elevated spot offering breath-taking views up Loch Linnhe toward Ben Nevis.
Of the 16, 13 are self-contained self-catering units, 8 of which have ensuite facilities. The other 3 are halved, creating our budget bedrooms, each sleeping 2 see details below.

Moving into a shieling

Shielings have been produced and used on Mull for over 30 years, long before glamping was ever even heard of. They were the summer cottages of Highland shepherds tending their flocks by mountain and shore in days gone by.
They offer spacious, airy, dry, fireproof, bright accommodation and are very strong.
You have all the comfort of a basic cottage, whilst still experiencing all that camping has to offer, at one with nature, listening to the sea and birds.

Previous guests of the Shielings have thought them a simple, good idea, with many commenting on how spacious, bright, and clean they are, offering a balance of camping and luxury with comfortable beds and excellent value for money.
Campers liked not pitching and packing tents in wet weather. Many came on foot or bike, saving the ferry cost of car or caravan.

But Shielings are not insulated, so be sure to pack plenty warm clothes to avoid being cold if the weather should turn distinctly Scottish.
In the Shieling field, where the views are stunning, cars can go up to pitch and pack, but must be kept on the hard standing, (they must not be taken onto the grass) after which, they are then left in a car parking area nearby. This is to protect both grass and other campers.

Please remember to bring plenty of warm things and hope you don't need to use them.

BUDGET BEDS

We have found that backpackers, cyclists and others on a budget, don't always want to pitch their own tents, especially for a single night or in stormy weather.

So we halved some Shielings to make a simple, clean but basic twin/double bedroom at each end. The beds go together to make a good double. If you are single, you will still have the "room" to yourself. But remember that there may be someone else at the other end. If total privacy is important, or you have a dog, please click the BACK button and choose a Shieling, which is completely self-contained

You can cook and eat in the Shieling Common Room, located on the top field, or in the pot washing facility in the lower park. On chillier evenings, you can sit by the multi-fuel stove in the Shieling Common Room. Wood or coal are available from the local Spar shop.

Budget beds cost 16 per person, per night for adults and 12 for under 15's.
Even if you're on your own, you don't have to share.

You can hire bedding and cooking and eating gear for 4.50 per person, per night.
