Our Camping Shieling Tent is a self-contained, self-catering tent complete with en-suite facilities and a basic camping kitchen area, so cooking can be done inside your tent.
It is fitted with a smokeless fuel stove for your comfort. A scuttle of smokeless fuel can be purchased at reception.
Shielings have been on Mull for 35 years, long before glamping was ever even heard of. They were inspired by the summer dwellings of Highland shepherds tending their flocks by mountain and shore in days gone by.
Our Shieling Tent offer spacious, airy, dry, fireproof, bright accommodation and is very strong.
You have all the comfort of an ultra basic cottage, whilst still experiencing all that camping under canvas has to offer. Be at one with nature, listening to the sea and birds.
This is Camping.
Please note that your ‘Self-catering camping accommodation' is in a Camping Shieling Tent.
It is Under Canvas, it is Not a building.
You Will hear the weather and you Will hear your neighbours and they Will hear you.
Our Camping Shieling Tent is Not insulated, so be sure to pack plenty warm clothes and blankets to avoid being cold if the weather should turn distinctly Scottish and hope you don't need to use them.
