Stayed here for 2 nights, fantastic welcome & comprehensive instructions on where everything was located and what there was to do locally. Nice quiet campsite ideally located for the Skye bridge and Broadford. Only slight criticism is the extra 1 charge for the showers, but on the other hand refreshing trust in that you pay on departure. Will return for definite.

I stayed at the campsite for 7 nights with my dog, this was one of the best holidays, I have had. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The facilities were very clean, location great, beautiful beach across the road and open moorland behind. Ideal location for seeing the island. Broadford is a 5 minute drive away which has a large co op and petrol station, 30 minute drive to Portree.

I hope to return next October.

Stayed 2 nights as part of our Outer Hebrides trip and must say that first impressions are not great as there are lots of what can only be described as bits of machinery hanging around but once on site we had a really good time.

As the manager responded to a previous review that they are more Easyjet than British Airways this is certainly true but cannot fault the welcome we received and the pitch we were allocated.

Booked this site for it's location and were certainly very happy with it.

Walked down to the beach on the first evening and got some fantastic sunset photos. True, there were cows and a bull in the field but far enough away to not be a problem. The next morning walked the dog again and never saw them so maybe they are moved to other fields.

Never used the facilities as we prefer to use our own but on the last morning used the toilet and was impressed with the shower room - think there was a charge of 1 for a shower.

Something we had never experienced before was that we were asked to pay when we departed - very trusting!

Good value at 13 per night with electric. Would probably stay again if in the area.

Home from a roasting hot weekend on Skye where we camped at the fabulous Ashaig site. We were warmly welcomed by the site manager who was great with our wee boy (8)(and absolutely convinced him that the marker peg was for dealing with midges, ogres and vampires!)

Surprisingly less midges than expected, possibly due to the blistering heat and sunshine of the mid July heatwave. The site is a 'SMIDGE' stockist which appeared to work well in keeping the midges that were around away!

The site is exactly as described on the website but more than lived up to my expectations after having read previous reviews. Very quiet site, lots of room to pitch and have a campfire, lovely facilities with a lot of thought having gone into how to make it easy for campers to set fires. No playground for kids or anything like that but the beach is very near and there is plenty of room on site to explore.

The toilets were immaculately clean, a little busy in the mornings as there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers. The only thing I'd say the site could benefit from is the addition of another compost toilet up on the top area of the camping field to save having to drag small children down in the dark in the middle of the night!

I'd highly recommend this site, and would be keen to return in the future.

We highly recommend this site, after a bit of wild camping this place is what I would call luxury, it does all the basics very well. All the information from the Campsite owner's website are exact in detail, it was quiet, the shower block and toilet facilities are clean and well maintained, there was plenty of space between pitches. Tide times and weather guides updated daily on notice board. The cooking hut came in handy when the wind picked up. Although the site is next to a main road the traffic noise is so minimal that there was no disruption to us

The communal static caravan is there, if the weather fails, with table tennis, seating area and phone charging points. Very helpful and friendly Owner and Manager, we hope to go there again soon.

Reviewer: Ktvn 5 reviews from this member

We visited this site but were very disappointed with the lack of toilets to the ratio of tents. Also the long walk to the toilets from the camping field when you have young children is too much in the dark especially as the field was particularly uneven in places. The signage around the site is very confusing, out on the road there is many signs advising it is a quiet site, yet the coffee and snack van is called the blasta van. Also the signage at the gate stating the owners may become aggressive if asked about space when the full signs are up left me feeling uncomfortable on the site. We did not stay as long as planned due to these problems, it's a step up from wild camping and has nice but not great views but that is as good as it gets I'm afraid.

Management response: In response to Ktvn ( I'm Tom, the owner of the site. ) He mentions not enough toilets for the number of tents, and the rude sign warning people not to try and get on when the full sign is up. We try and take no more campers than we have facilities for, thus the full signs quite often. We are then frustrated when people keep piling on, everyone with a ( to them ) pressing need to camp on the site. Eventually I decided that I needed a very blunt sign telling people full means full. Unfortunately some people still take no notice, and others are offended by it. Anyone have a suggestion as to a good way of coping with this problem ?

Secondly he mentions I advertise a quiet campsite, yet the coffee and snack van is called the ' blasta ' van. Blasta is actually the Gallic word for tasty, so I think I'm innocent on that one.

I'm sorry he didn't enjoy his stay here, and would maybe suggest he sticks to more upmarket, ( and probably more expensive ) sites in future. I unashamedly pitch the site as cheap and cheerful, more EasyJet than British Airways.
