The Fauld Farm on the Isle of Mull

1 unit · Motorhome, Tent50 acres · Tobermory, Scotland
The Fauld is a small hill farm located close to Tobermory in the north-east of the stunning Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. In total, the land comprises around 150 acres - although most of this area tends to be grazed by our Highland ponies and Shetland/Cheviot sheep. In spring and summer, there are wild flowers and birds galore, and bracing fresh air is on tap all year round - as are the spectacular coastal views from the top of the hills. The farm lies within walking distance of the iconic and colourful fishing port of Tobermory, which offers a range of shops, cafes and pubs - as well as being home to the Tobermory Distillery at Ledaig. If you have a car, we can offer off-road parking for a couple of vehicles, and we also have parking space for two campervans (though we do not have water or electricity connections yet). PS: You are advised to come equipped for camping in wet conditions whatever the season - although we promise that the weather can be lovely too! We look forward to welcoming responsible, country-loving campers to The Fauld :-)

Coastal campsites in Isle of Mull guide


From picture-perfect fishing villages to rugged mountain peaks and sandy beaches, the Isle of Mull has some of the most varied scenery in Scotland’s Inner Hebrides. Campers can also see ancient castles, including the 13-century Duart Castle, and spot abundant wildlife, including whales, dolphins, eagles, and otters. Mull is one of Scotland’s most-visited islands, so planning and booking in advance is a must, especially in summer. While private camping sites are limited around the island, options range from pitching a tent along a quiet stretch of coast to parking your motorhome or campervan within walking distance of the capital’s diversions.

Where to go


The capital of Mull and a picturesque fishing port, Tobermory is known for its bright harbourside buildings. It’s also home to lots of places to eat, drink, and shop, including the island’s only whisky distillery. Outdoor enthusiasts can take a woodland walk in Aros Park, head out from the harbour on a wildlife-spotting boat tour, or take a day trip to the island of Staffa. Within walking distance of the town centre are small camping sites, some with hardstanding motorhome pitches and a handful of shepherd’s huts.

Salen Bay

Heading 10 miles down the coast near the 13th-century Aros Castle, Salen Bay is a popular spot for kayaking and paddleboarding adventures. Camping options include hardstanding and tent pitches that offer mountain and sea views from all sides, some within a short distance from Craignure, where the ferry from Oban arrives.


Ten miles farther down Mull’s east coast, the small village of Craignure is the main port for ferries from Oban on the mainland. Area holiday parks offer astroturf tent pitches as well as hardstanding pitches, some within walking distance of the port. Look out for canvas glamping tents too.


About 14 miles west of Craignure, Lochbuie is a tranquil haven home to the ruins of the 15th-century Moy Castle, a standing stone circle, and an abundance of wildlife including eagles and otters. Although a private residence, the Lochbuie Estate allows wild camping on its grounds so long as campers follow the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
