Welcome to Shieling Holidays on the Isle Of Mull 

We are situated on a beautiful shore front with breath-taking sea, mountain, and uninterrupted views up the Sound of Mull and down Loch Linnhe, all the way to Ben Nevis.

A warm welcome awaits your arrival with your caravan, camper or tent.

Why not try our unique self-catering Ensuite Shieling Tents for camping with a difference.

Perhaps our charming Cottages will inspire you to take a break with us here on this idyllic island.

There are forestry tracks and enchanting coastline walks within easy reach, which you, the family and your dog will love.

One of the forestry walks nearby will take you to the now private Torosay castle or for the more adventurous, walk around the shore to both Torosay and Duart castles. Starting points to walk up the surrounding hills are also close by.

We are ideally based, nice and centrally for exploring Mull, with Tobermory 21 miles North and Fionnphort 35 miles south.

We are a mere stroll from the local amenities; pub, shop, cafes, ferry terminal and buses for Tobermory and Fionnphort, where you can take a ferry to Iona (or boat trips to Staffa).

A pleasant walk around to the other side of the bay will take you to the Isle of Mull Hotel & Swimming Pool.

Although we are within the village of Craignure, we are located on a peninsula, so there is no disturbance from traffic noise, you can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet.
