Fidden Farm Campsite

As most my regular readers will know, we were camping on Mull very recently and had an amazing time.  We found the most amazing campsite on the south western corner of Mull and it was perfect.  Fidden Farm is the best campsite I have ever stayed.

To get there you will need to get the ferry over to Mull from Oban and then take a left after coming off the ferry and stay on that road for around an hour, until you reach Fionnphort. Turn left and drive down to Fidden, pay for the camping at the farm house (lovely people, very helpful) and find a perfect spot to pitch your camp with stunning views.

The Cool Camping web page mentions that it’s a quite basic site, but they have clearly put more time into the site recently and there is a fantastic new toilet and wash block, including mens and womens toilets and showers, a freezer for ice blocks and indoor area to wash dishes, all very clean.

We arrived on a Friday afternoon and the site was fairly quite, by Sunday it was very busy.  I recommend arriving on a week day to try and get a good spot along the front.

We were fortunate to arrive in the sunshine, just before the rain started for the evening!  Although, even the rain doesn’t make the scenery any less gorgeous, you just end out a little wetter…

Although we were only there for 4 days, we still spent a good part of each day at the beach, playing in the sand, ‘fishing’ with nets and clambering over rocks.

This is the good thing about Fidden, you don’t have to plan long outings every day, you can just stay and enjoy what’s there.

There’s a little tidal island just a little way from the campsite, which Chris and Mr O climbed whilst Mr A was having a nap.  I was a little annoyed that I couldn’t join them, so when the tide went out again, I climbed up in the dark at 10.30pm, whilst the boys were fast asleep.  I would loved to have taken my time, but unfortunately knowing my littlest, I had to be quick, before he woke demanding more milk from me!

The sunsets are also stunning, the sun sets just over the coastline and we had mainly beautifully clear evenings with great sunsets to watch.

    Oh I have always wanted to go to Mull. I was supposed to spend one summer working in a cafe on the island but then I was unable to. It just looks really stunning 🙂 #whatevertheweather

    Wow! Really stunning photos 🙂 It looks a beautiful place to stay. We’ve never been to Scotland or the islands, but it’s on our family bucket list though!

    This looks like a great site and I’ve definitely added it to our camping wishlist. The cool camping site has some really good recommendations on it, we use it a lot too. Great photos.

    Beautiful, we just camped in Scotland last week a place called knoydart peninsula. I’ll link it up in a bit! It’s absolutely beautiful, but only the one toilet and a cold tap! #whatevertheweather

    This looks utterly gorgeous! Any camp site near the sea is great for me but this one looks really special. Would love to visit one day. 🙂 #whatevertheweather

    Beautiful photos! You make it sound like such a relaxing little break, a fab time to bond with your family. I’m not one for camping but I love to hear when others go, I live vicariously through other happy campers! It’s a shame about the rain but at least it didn’t ruin the afternoon. We’re on a staycation right now and it’s rained every single day. We’ve still been to the beach and eaten ice-creams. We can’t let the weather beat us right! #whatevertheweather x

    Beautiful photos, looks like you had a great time. I would love to visit Scotland again, haven’t been in years and it’s a stunning part of the country x #whatevertheweather

    Awww what a pretty place!

    We were campinga lot before but the farthest that we got to camp is Wales. I wish we can go back to camping because all the blog posts about camping makes me ache for it!

    Stunning!! What an amazing and beautiful place to camp, I can’t say I have ever seen such a beautiful camping spot before. Looks like you had a wonderful time, and the boys looked like they loved exploring the coast. Thanks for hosting #whatevertheweather x

    No never camped there before but it certainly looks and sounds very appealing. #whatevertheweather

    What a glorious camping trip! I’m so jealous of your view! The kids look so happy playing by the sea.

    Wow! This place is so beautiful. I will definitely have to pin! Your photos are just gorgous as usual! Thank you for hosting. x

    Oh I just love Mull. If my husband had been able to walk we’d have been camping on Mull as our holiday this year. As it was we had a lovely holiday in Perthshire, but I did miss going to Mull. We camped at the campsite just near to where the ferry docks last time but I’d definitely give this one a go if we take the girls next year.
