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

Autumn Break on the Island of Mull ☀⛱ at Craignure Bunkhouse
June 27th 2020
We are Good to Go and welcoming guests for safe and refreshing holiday to the beautiful Island of Mull
As a result of COVID 19, we have made a few changes to enable social distancing and enhanced 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 16 people. We have introduced a reduced fee for smaller family groups of up to 10 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 on the Oban – Craignure route it is highly advisable to book your space on the ferry.
We have contactless check in procedures in place.
Due to government advice our self catering facility is not open for individual room bookings. Complimentary starter pack with tea/coffee, milk and sugar is 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 have stepped up their cleaning regime to even higher levels in all areas, to facilitate this, we 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 have secure 24hr access with staff on hand if required.
We are 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.
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.
