Skye Camping and Caravanning Club Site has been named as the AA’s Scottish Campsite of the Year for 2012.
The Club Site, which is located in Edinbane on the Isle of Skye, received an excellent four pennant rating to secure its position.
And the good news does not finish there as Bellingham Club Site, in Northumberland, has been upgraded to five pennants.
Meanwhile, Eskdale, Teversal and Troutbeck Club Sites also achieved AA five pennant ratings.
It takes the total number of Club Franchise Sites with AA five premier pennants to four.
AA Inspector, Ewan Ross, visited Skye back in July and wrote in his report: “It’s a peaceful site and an ideal base to visit many tourist attractions in the area.
“It would be remiss not to comment on the quality of the amenity block in particular and site facilities in general, all of which reflect the owners attitude towards achieving excellent standards to meet customer expectations.”
The Club’s Franchisees, Nicky Sellier and David Weller, were delighted by the news and said: “We strive to provide exceptional customer service and it’s encouraging to receive such a recognised title.
“We hope this award will encourage campers to visit our site – it’s located on the shore of Loch Greshornish and offers beautiful views, yet it is still close to many local attractions for all to enjoy.”
Bob Hill, the Club’s Sites Director, added: “AA pennants are celebrated accolades and we would like to congratulate David, Nicky and their assistants for their on-going commitment to delivering Service Excellence.
“All of our franchise sites have performed exceptionally well and they should be proud of their achievements.
“Our Club Sites continue to excel and we hope this award will encourage campers to visit our Sites in the future.”
Cheddar and Corfe Castle Franchise Sites also achieved AA four star pennant ratings.
AA rated accommodation is assessed under a set of common quality standards agreed by the AA and the UK tourist authorities (VisitEngland, VisitScotland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board).
