Motorhomes are being offered official overnight parking at Ellenabeich.

Spaces for overnighters have been opened up in the car park of the former Highland Arts Studio in the historic village centre.

Site owners, Easdale-based Seafari Adventures, stressed it is not a campsite and there are no toilet or waste disposal facilities available.

Co-owner Jess Hill said: ‘It is for overnight parking only, it is not a campsite.’

The nearest public toilets close to the ferry pier were closed in lockdown but are due to open from July 15.

Seil community council chairman Julie Ferris said: ‘We certainly welcome the safe parking of motorhomes.’

Community councillors have been looking at ideas of its own on how the island could gain more in the future from visiting camper vans who have previously been taking up laybys and spaces in the scenic council-owned car park that overlooks Mull.
