OK folks, glad to be corrected about the absence of midges in the far north west! I react badly to them, and a monster midge in my own back garden has given me a lump on the leg. Anyway, for scenery as magnificent as Assynt, midge bites are a small price to pay.

Clachtoll has been on my wishlist of sites to visit for a while now. Those photos are stunning!

Hi Fiona, I too suffer greatly from Midge Bites, but the mere fact that some folks do and some folks don't mean that it is not the Midge Bite that varies but the way your body is reacting to them.
It is the Histamine in your body and the way it attacks the Bite that decides whether the Bite will Itch and Swell and therefore, during the Biting Season I always carry Anti-histamine tablets. (Piriton) being the best known.
If I am bitten, I can watch the swelling coming up and one Piriton and I can watch it going down again. Yup, as quick as that!

We've booked Isle of Skye for the 1st week of the kids holiday and planning this site later on...... just how windy does it get, is having the awning up on the folding camper going to be difficult?

Have seen quite a few pictures where people have almost layers of windbreaks around them!

It can be just as windy on Skye as it can be anywhere but I wouldn't say that Skye is especially windy.
We had a week there a couple of years back and I cannot remember any wind at all.
The good thing about Skye is that the mountains are so high, that even on a windy day, if you go round to the sheltered side, you will be fine.
There is so much to see and do on Skye that you will always find plenty to keep you occupied.

Re Skye - do make sure you see the Cuillins on Skye at sunset - the Black Cuillins get darker and darker, the Red Cuillins glow warmly rosy, yet they look the same in sunlight - magic! And a cracking book to read (not seen the film) before you go is "Calum's Road", the real story of a crofter who built a road to his croft on Raasay (which you can easily get to from Skye) because the authorities would not do it. I read it in one sitting.

Clachtoll was fantastic......
I would say that for kids Sands at Gairloch was better but scenery wise Clachtoll was a long way ahead.

Hiya, is there any chance you can submit a campsite review for the site so all visitors to this website can find and read about it.
