Great place for climber's and midges. Get pulled to spell by the waves lapping the huge sandy beach 50m away.

Beautiful vistas, friendly campers and staff. There is a shop but it has limited foodstuff. Better to plan ahead and stock up in Broadford.

Loved this site. Cannot be beaten for it's location. Mountains, sand and sea in one vista. Great for exploring the great outdoors with walking/climbing for every age and ability. Great for dogs.

The pitches are big. Room for motorhome, awning and an extra car/ outdoor furniture/BBQ. During our travels in Skye we found it difficult to find a site that would allow motorhome with awning on grass. This site allows this, grass is well kept and each pitch well defined.

Site staff are always around if you need help. Good wee coffee shop is stocked with common items you might run out of. I would however recommend going well stocked with food/wine etc. This site is remote, there is no wifi or mobile phone reception. Tv might be possible with a sattelite.

There are plentiful fresh water stands dotted about.

There is a bog standard chemical waste emptying area behind the toilets. It is close to shrubbery, a point worth noting in the height of midge season! Be prepared!

The few negative points I would mention. The toilets are open to the public, though not a problem, they could be cleaner. I do understand though there is a lot of traffic through them. There is an odour permeating around the toilet/shower block though never inside. Again, being remote and not on mains water or sewage this is understandable.

From a motorhome point of view, the grey waste disposal point is not well accessed for driving over. When I was there it was impossible to use as there were always cars parked on or around it making turning a coach built size van near impossible. If you want to use it, then best go with long hose or even a bucket.

As mentioned in previous reviews, the toilet/shower block is a fair distance it you are camped at the opposite end of the site. Bear this in mind. Not a huge issue for many, but still worth noting.

There are 6 hard standing areas next to the toilet block. This is a let down for the site. Cramped looking, no space between vans and not a pleasant looking area, unlike the rest of the site. There is also a large volume of foot traffic passing by to reach the toilets, and the walks that start from behind the block.

Overall, this is an amazing place to camp. Lots of space for all outfits with large well laid out grass pitches.

The location of this site is wonderful, right underneath the Cuillins, and beside a beach. A lovely place to sit and admire the view, and plenty of opportunities for walking. This means it is remote, however easily reached on a single-track road with plenty of passing places. No mobile signal, but there is a payphone. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Facilities are generally clean and good, although as other reviewers have mentioned, they are very much at one end of the site, and more dish-washing would help.

Midges sometimes irritating in the evening.

Great location to head up into the Cuillin or even a beach holiday as many families were doing. Showers and toilets were clean & tidy with plenty of hot water for the dishes. Yet again a chair would be handy to dry your feet. Quite a big site spread out over several fields. If I went again I would camp away from the hordes of door slamming camper-vans which tend to cluster near the toilet block. Car owners were just as bad, with no regard for anyone else. I was on a bike, so once I was unloaded, I was done. The swarms of midges might have been a factor with many people seeking shelter.

Handy shop and landline phone with current weather info displayed. Shop is open 8am to 6pm. Most people were stocking up in Broadford on way in. Lovely views and great to hear happy children enjoying a proper holiday! Pity there's no bar but managed without!

The location is perfect, by a beautiful beach at the end of a single-track road. Whatever you are oriented the view is nice. Grass is well mowed and pegs get in perfectly.

Sheeps and rabbits live inside the campsite.

Toilet/shower block is on a edge of the campsite so it can be a bit of a walk to go there. Per sex: many toilets, 2 showers, 2 sinks. The dish-washing sinks are inside the gender perimeters (sorry for my english) which is not very convenient.

There is a small shop too.

We really recommend the walk from the campsite which goes to Allt Coire-Lagan (small lochan at the top-end, enjoyable but needing a bit of light scrambling), then way back via Loch an Fhir Bhallaich then Allt Coire na Banachdich waterfall.

Fantastic views, very welcoming and helpful, we had the most amazing time and the weather was wall to wall sunshine, so I am sure that helped. The campsite was basic but clean pick the time you have a shower and you will be ok as there is only two in the men's but they are free and hot.

The staff were very helpful and easy going. Nothing seemed to much trouble for them
