The site is situated right on the loch with the majority of the ehu pitches on the loch side. Well set out with plenty of space between each hardstanding.

Toilets and showers were very clean and well heated, plenty of piping hot water. There are several fresh water taps around the site and also a chem disposal and laundry.

The owner, Colin, is a delightful chap, very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. When we arrived he wasn't there but a note in the office to pitch up and see him at 6pm.

Dunvegan itself is 10 minutes walk at most. Both bakeries are lovely, Dunvegan Bakery more for breads and rolls, Janes for gorgeous cakes and chocolates (we didn't find either to be over-priced to be fair). The castle is a few minutes drive and worth the 7 entry fee as it includes the gardens which are spectacular. We also visited the Giant Angus MacAskgill exhibition - its only 2 and a good bit of fun, well worth it. There are two small supermarket stores in the village and a couple of hotels, plenty to cover all eventualities.

This is a brilliant campsite, well run and situated in a great spot for Skye attractions. Would not hesitate to recommend and we would certainly visit again.

We stayed 3 nights in August 2013 in our 6P family tent. I really enjoyed the stay on Skye. The weather was brilliant and we visited Portree (fishing village), walked up to the Millienium Stone (Dunvegan), and strolled to the Coral Beaches. We saw seals and a distant Dunvegan Castle. The campsite itself is in a fantastic location right on the edge of the loch. I would not say that this was a family campsite due to all the comings and goings of campervans and motorhomes. The site does sometimes feel like a car park. There is no field where children can play and the loch side is not really kid friendly. The man who runs the site is laid back and told us to pitch wherever we liked. We found the last flat spot at the bottom of the hill (you do need a strong tent for the wind). The toilet block was clean. The showers were hot and free and there was usually one available. There is a need to replace all shower curtains with doors as my 12 year old got a shock one morning from a confused German woman who had not worked out the curtains were hiding the showers! The village has shops, pubs etc. The Dunvegan bakery (right by the entrance of the road for the campsite) is great for breakfast, bread rolls and cakes and is reasonably priced. Janes Cakes along the road however is a different story. If you want to pay 4. 99 for a chocolate muffin (yes that's what I meant - per muffin) then Janes Cakes is the place to go! The midges didn't shock me as much as the price of those cakes. Who pays 4. 99 for a bit of flapjack really! The price of the campsite however was very reasonable at 15 per night for me, dh and dd (12). I would definitely recommend this campsite for a couple of nights whilst visiting the northwest of Skye.

Booked in for a few nights. The site was easy to find with a sat nav but look out for the painted sign as is easily missed. Should of looked at the prices beforehand but since when is above 12 years old classed as an adult. The site has great views over the loch but could be very open to the weather. Most pitches will need some form of levelling as the site is generally sloping. There is a new toilet block but does not appear to be fully finished, but there was plenty of hot water. There was also a laundry which cost 3. 50 per wash and a tumble drier. There are a couple of small shops and petrol station 300 metres away which sell the basics. For the nearest supermarket you have to travel to the CO-OP in Portree.

Overall a nice little site if a little expensive for what it provides.

We decided to have a weeks holiday at Kinloch as we enjoyed it so much last year. I booked in advance and thought I'd be cheeky and ask, if possible, we could have the same pitch as last time. On arrival we found the owner had reserved us the very pitch we wanted. Nothing is too much for this man.

The toilet block and washing/drying area has been upgraded since our last visit. Everything is spotless and the bins are emptied regularly. There is a great indoor sink area for dishes.

The owner has a supply of books you can borrow and also dvds, he is a local man so anything you want to find or places to go visit just ask.

This site is so quiet and peaceful with stunning views and very good value. Approx 20 a night for 2 adults, 2 kids with hook up.

Showers are push button, bit too hot for me but better that than too cold!

Plenty area for tents and level hard standing for motorhomes and caravans. If you pre book your pitch will probably be on the loch side with uninterrupted views up Dunvegan Loch.

As you approach the site, when you turn off the main road and cross over the bridge, the road bends to the right alongside the river. Ahead you will see the road bends left up the hill, if you engage 1st gear at the bottom you will sail up the hill, the entrance is on your right just before the top of the hill. Sounds worse than it is.

Can't rate this site highly enough.

This is the site to stay at on Skye in my opinion.

Seeya next time !

Travelled from Mallaig by ferry and toured Skye visiting Waternish and a lovely pub called Stein Inn after being at Trumpan and Ardmore Point. Wonderful views of the isles from there and dog friendly also.

As others have stated this is a friendly compact site and offers wonderful views up the loch. Our hardstanding pitch had been reserved for our 27' home on wheels. This is a wonderful location at the head of a sea loch. We were fortunate enough to get a hard standing level pitch right on the edge of the loch. We had uninterrupted views right across the loch.

The welcome was pleasant and we were made to feel at home. Very dog friendly.

The toilet block was clean and well maintained. Waste water drain facilities were provided for motorhomes as well as a fill up hose. The village is about ten minutes walk from the site so we didn't explore.

We would certainly go back if the opportunity arose as you cannot really fault the location, facilities, customer service or value for money.

Had a lovely 4 nights at this site. The site sits right on the loch offering lovely views. Facilities are very clean. The owner must be one of the friendliest, most helpful men I have come across on a site - nothing was too much bother. When we decided to leave a day early (due to non-moving, low lying mist!) he refunded the night's payment.

The site is very well located for exploring the west of the island - and we enjoyed some lovely walks and some great sightseeing. Well worth a return visit if we go back up to Skye.
