We arrived at Glenbrittle at 1pm hoping to get a hook up, not realising they had to be pre-booked. Realising the 2 campervans in front of us were doing the same, we decided we weren't going to be lucky and get one, so we opted for no electric.
Im very fussy about toilets/showers, but the scenery and setting of the site just blew all that away, and that's saying something for me!
Set right next to the beach and at the foot of the mountains, the location is simply stunning. Lots of walks go from the site, so perfect setting if you want to hike/ramble. The shop has a map of a popular walk you can do which it seemed lots of fellow campers did, us included, and we weren't disappointed.
The site is set 6 miles down a track with many passing places and not in bad condition at all, so don't let that put you off.
Yes the toilets are not the best, but they were relatively clean, I had to queue for the shower but 20p for 8 minutes was ok, all the time I was there no one took the full 8 minutes. I don't like spiders but there weren't that many, probably fattened up on the many midges.
The shop does sell midge nets - but at a price ! you can get these for a quarter of the price before you travel and you really will need them when the wind drops. But this is Scotland and its to be expected and really not much you can do about it other than be prepared.
The pitches are big, and the earlier you get there the better choices you have as this site does get very busy later on in the day. When reception is shut you can pitch where you like and pay later.
I would have no hesitation going back to this site, even though I like good facilities, the setting and scenery more than compensate for the toilets (which weren't that bad and ive seen far worse) !
First of all, we can't believe people on here have previously marked the site down for lack of facilities for kids. The sea and clean beach are literally on the doorstep, plenty of walks and nature abound, (we saw deer, minky whales, golden eagle and seals, just on walks from the site!), rock pools, the list goes on. If you're looking for a site that has a playground, nightly 'entertainment' in the bar, or anything like that. Go elsewhere. Please! Save this site for people who prefer the simpler things in life. Yes the facilities are maybe a little 'basic', but there's plenty of hot water for showering and washing up, a well stocked shop run by informative and friendly staff, and the location is simply stunning. The views of the mountains and/or ocean from every pitch are breathtaking and I'm always a bit disappointed in my photos from here as they never seem to do it justice. An amazing campsite, along with the ones at Durness, Achmelvich and Clachtoll, and Fidden Farm on Mull, one of, for us simple folk anyway, the finest in the country! Cheers for an ace week and can't wait to go back.
This site is in a most amazing spot on Skye, very remote on the drive up there but it's so special when you get there with grassed areas that were made into bays to park on. We didn't go for a serviced pitch as there are only 8 and they were booked. There is a beach immediately in front of you and the views of the mountains and walks are spectacular! On site shop was good and showers/toilets clean. A few miles up the road was Fairy Pools which is well worth a visit.
Stunning location - if you're going to Skye this is the best site to camp on in my opinion.
Stayed here for one night in tent. Location is fantastic.
There is a shop for basics, ie tins of soup, fresh bread, milk etc. All clean and staff very friendly. Toliet block is a little bit basic but was clean enough and plenty of hot water for washing dishes etc. Shower was 20p a go. Only negatives were, all the bins were full of rubbish to overflowing and only two wash basins for the blokes so there could be a bit of a queue. Will go back again. Another plus point is that the tent pegs did actually go fully into the ground! This is a good site and should be on your list if you want to explore the area. The cost to us was 8 pounds per person per night. Simple as that.
If you are looking for a truly away from it all campsite then this hits the mark. The location is stunning, a lovely beach and bay to the front and the majestic black Cuillin right behind you. It is not often you sit on the beach and keep looking away from the sea for the view behind you! We pitched next to the beach, pitch was on a slight slope but was fine. There were plenty of large flat pitches to be had as well and they are all well spaced out. The showers and toilet block were fine, hot free showers and plenty of loos my only complaint no soap dispensers which irritates me a tiny bit.
The shop is a big bonus, well stocked, fresh danishes etc in morning, ice creams, midgy stuff etc etc. Yes a bit pricey but worth it when you are at the end of a 7 mile track. Staff were friendly and knowledgeable.
Loads to do, walkers are spoilt for choice! No park etc but our 3 year old loved it, the beach and the wildlife had her hooked and it is a really safe environment.
We scored with the weather but we will be bck again whatever the weather as this is a very special place.
