An opportunity for me and my family to spend five super days on a fresh air holiday on Mull, which is fast becoming my favourite island. We did see Eagles on three separate occasions but sadly, look as we did, the shy elusive otters evaded our attention. What better reason to come back.Read More

Craignure Bunkhouse – Looking forward to welcoming guests from 15th July
Subject to Government guidance we are looking forward to reopening and welcoming our guests again from 15th July. As a result of COVID 19, we are making a few changes to enable social distancing and enhance our health and hygiene procedures.
Our aim has always been to provide affordable clean accommodation for our guests with your safety and comfort in mind. We are able to offer all of our en-suite rooms for exclusive use and have restructured our room pricing based on the number of occupants travelling together. There is a flat fee for the room hire, plus a charge per berth occupied. The whole hostel can also be booked for exclusive use for up to 20 people. We have introduced a reduced fee for smaller groups of up to 12 people.
Exclusive hostel hire will have full use of the kitchen facility and 24hr access. Booking can be made online via our website or by telephoning us directly on 01680812043. If you are travelling by car, remember to book your space on the ferry.
We will have contactless check in procedures in place.
Due to government advice our self catering facility will not be open for individual room bookings. Complimentary starter pack with tea/coffee, milk and sugar will be provided for each room along with facilities for making hot drinks. We have a lovely pub right next door that serves food and can also offer breakfast if pre-booked the night before.
We have reduced the number of tables in the Communal room, giving more space between 3 defined areas of soft seating to allow for social distancing measures.
Our team will step up their cleaning regime to even higher levels in all areas, to facilitate this, we will request that the premises are fully vacated by 10.00, and will not allow re-entry before 4.00. Guests who hire the hostel for exclusive use will have secure 24hr access with staff on hand if required.
We will be using steam cleaners on all soft furnishings and W H O recommended antibacterial products on high touch areas such as light switches and door handles. There are extra supplies of disposable hand towels, hand sanitiser and cleaning products throughout the building
While these are the most significant changes, guests will be briefed on others, and specific procedures, on arrival.
Happy Hostelling – when the time comes! ✨
In need of an escape? How about cycling round the Isle of Mull…
February 26th 2020
The atmosphere on Mull is difficult to match anywhere else. Craignure Bunkhouse offers a place to delve into the wonders of this Hebridean island. Secure bike storage on site also means that you can bring your bike along too. Seems like a cycling getaway is in order.
Craignure Bunkhouse, handily located but a short stroll away from the dock. Only ten minutes after mooring you could be cycling through this idyllic wonderland. Breathing the fresh air, sweeping vistas setting the scene for a two wheeled adventure. Maybe you’ll stay on Mull and see Tobermory, reminiscent of Portmeirion. Perhaps a trip up Ben More, a challenging walk no doubt. Or maybe Mull is just one stop on your island hopping adventure.
