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 :-)

The Charcoal Huts - Isle of Bute

2 units · Glamping8 acres · Scotland
Our Huts are located within the Moss Wood area of Bute Forest - a mixed birch and alder wood that extends up the hillside to the west of the A886 that connects the Rhubodach Ferry to Port Bannatyne and Rothesay. Moss Wood has a range of facilities. Park on the shore-side where the coast can be enjoyed or at the main entrance, and take a walk up through Moss Wood along the Poetry Trail. A steep walk in places, the Poetry Trail is a loop punctuated with places to stop and read, to stop and think. Read nature poetry from throughout the ages, stop at the Blether Stane, or taking the spur to the Viewing Point back south across the Kyles. Moss Wood connects to the West Island Way – take the Poetry Trail and the spur to the Viewing Point – and then take the Stag’s Trod further up (steeply) till you reach the West Island Way. From there, head south towards Port Bannatyne or north along the boundary of the Community Forest. From the viewing point, you can also explore interesting heritage features such as the old WW2 bunker, kayak shelter, Balnakailly settlement, and the SSSI oak woodland.

Campsites for hikers near Tobermory guide

Overview

Instantly recognizable for its brightly painted buildings strung around a sheltered harbor, Tobermory is a picturesque little fishing port and gateway to the Isle of Mull. Fanning out from the harbor and up a hill, the town is filled with good places to eat, cozy pubs, lively music venues and art galleries. It’s also home to the Isle of Mull’s only whisky distillery and is a departure point for trips to see the island’s famed wildlife, including whales, dolphins, eagles and otters. While there are a limited number of formal sites around Tobermory on the island, it's a stunning location for camping, glamping and caravanning.

Where to go

Around Town

Within walking distance of the town center, Tobermory Campsite combines a rural atmosphere with the convenience of close proximity to the town’s shops, pubs and restaurants. The small campsite’s pitches are not marked out and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Hardstanding motorhome pitches can be booked, as can a handful of ‘shepherd’s huts’ for a glamping experience.

Salen Bay

Ten miles south of Tobermory and close to Aros Castle, Salen Bay Campsite is set in a hidden-corner of the coast but within walking distance of the village’s amenities (shop, pub, cafe). The site’s hardstanding and tent pitches offer mountain and sea views from all sides and guests can make use of on-site kayak and paddleboard hire to explore the coastline. 

Craignure

Twenty miles south of Tobermory, the small village of Craignure is the main port for ferries from the mainland. Within walking distance of the port and perched on the shore, Shieling Holidays has plenty of astroturf tent pitches as well as hardstanding pitches. For those traveling light, there’s also a selection of glamping-style static Shieling tents. 

When to go

The best time to visit Mull is from April to September. This is when the weather is driest and the opportunities for wildlife-spotting are best. Guided tours to see eagles, whales and dolphins typically run during this period with the peak months from June to August (the best month for whale watching is August). If you visit in winter, you can be sure of a crowd-free experience but some businesses may be closed.

Know before you go

  • Wild camping is possible on the Isle of Mull, but campers must adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • CalMac operates three ferries from Mull to the mainland, and one to Iona.
  • While there is a local bus service on Mull, it is limited. Having your own transport offers far more flexibility.
  • Don’t worry if you forget something: Tobermory has a supermarket and an outdoor gear store.
  • The weather is always unpredictable. Even in summer, you should bring warm, wet weather gear.
