If you enjoy camping on a carpark with little space between units and dark dingy facilities, with no chemical disposal, then this is the place for you.

OK the views are good, (although the road is very close)and there is a lovely walk, but there are much better sites on Skye with great positions.

Tents have a better position.

You will gather I was NOT impressed!

Spent 2 nights here so we could explore the Island (2 adults + 2 kids). Site itself had wonderful views, for us that's where it ended!

Happy to take the money from touring vans and motorhomes but this site has NO elsan toilet waste disposal facilities?? WHY??

Toilet / wash block looks great and blends in nicely with the surroundings. Showers are in desperate need of upgrade as are the toilets, when you turn shower on all your clothes and shoes get soaked as no stool and only 1 coat hook high up above the door. Spiders webs and dust around window ledges etc, nothing a good clean would tidy up and a coat of paint!

When on site the kids got very bored quickly as no play area in campsite. Although plenty of room for one!

I found numerous other sites around the island that I would be more than happy to try before I return here.

A great base if you want to explore the northern Cuillin and only 6 pp/night which gets you free, magnificently hot & powerful showers, access to decent laundry facilities, plus all the usual Scottish delights - midges, mist, rain & often blustery winds.

This fairly level site has the advantage of having the Sligachan Hotel and Seumas' Bar just over the road so you can escape all of these 'delights' if you wish. The Bar has over 370 Scottish Malts, real ales from the brewery next door and serves reasonable food all day.

There are electric hook-ups for motorhomes and others who need this and there is no need to book a place as there's lots of room.

The site is next to a river and does get windy as these funnel up the glen from the SW so nights can be 'exciting' on occasion.

What a lovely site with great views. You couldn't ask for anymore than this, yes its basic, but there is the hotel just over the road for drinks and food if you don't want to cook.

Wife did our laundry here and said everything was great.

Toilet block clean and lots of showers and sinks.

Cost 15 for unit, 2 adults and 1 dog with EHU.

Only down side, no elsan disposal point. Otherwise great value and we will be back.

A wonderful site at the foot of the Cullins with stuning views all around.

The site is very basic, almost wild camping with the luxury of toilets, showers and laundry which were all clean and usable. There are quite a few electric hookups on a hard standing area, though these were very close together and could get a bit crowded when busy. The main road through skye passes the edge of the site but it didn't cause us a problem.

The pub opposite is a must, beer is brewed next door in the Cullin brewery, the food was good, dogs allowed on leads (hooray, at last!) and 350 whiskies to choose from and very friendly staff.

Although we were not here for walking there seemed to be a few trails leading off from near the site. It is also a good stopping point for further exploring to Portree, Dunvegan, Glen Brittle and Talisker.

This campsite sounded promising; an extremely beautiful location with the mountains and the river, excellent position for walking or visiting other parts of Skye. The reality was somewhat different. Yes dramatic mountains, complete with clouds on top. Yes a babbling river, complete with swarms of midges! The weather was too bad to do much walking or touring! (yes I know its a hazard of camping on Skye). Also included is a busy main road (where can they all be going to on such a small island with a low population?!) You also get visited by sheep, who leave fertilizer pellets all over the site.

There are a few electric hook ups, no wifi, no chemical disposal. The facilities block is desperately in need of renovation, plenty of toilets, four showers and plenty of (communal) washbasins. However the surface was peeling off the formica (I think that's what it is all made of), door locks are dodgy, only two showers have curtains, the wooden boards to stand on after a shower are well past their use by date, I decided against risking a shower they looked too grimy.

Round the back of the block is the dish washing area, with little cover and tired looking sinks. The freshwater tap is fairly central on the site but it has a large puddle in front of it, tricky to use unless you are in wellies.

The ground is fairly level but with a lot of stones, difficult for banging in tent pegs and some boggy looking areas. Pitches had not been left clean by previous campers, left over food seemed to have been tipped out onto the grass.

Tents are pitched haphazardly, campers parked anywhere. We only paid 12 for the night, you get what you pay for. We were going to stay for two nights but decide one was enough.

On the plus side the 'roadway' is made of a very light stone so its easy to find your way round in the dark!

We didn't try out the hotel across the road for a hot meal & a drink.

If the facilities were refurbished this would be a great site, until then its mediocre.
