We stayed 3 nights in this place. Lots of people were in because of the Portee Games.

Space for camping vans seems to be limited : some of them were refused.

Warm welcoming. Lots of space, comfy grass. Lots of midges too.

Very clean and functional facilities. Table and benches to eat on. Stunning views on the Cuilinns.

Portee is a pleasant town at 20 mn walk from Portree, 5 mn by bicycles, with lots of shops and restaurants. Buses pass by on their way to Uig.

Nice and quiet place during the day. Much more noisy at night : people go to sleep very late sometimes and car drivers bang their doors loudly which is really annoying. Try to find a place away from cars and vans if you can.

We paid 14 for both of us and our tent.

What a great little site. Arrived at the site and was met by the warden who explained the facilities and explained the different types of pitches. Very reasonable prices at 21 a night for caravan with two adults and two children with hook up. There were two shower blocks on site both with showers and toilets. Generally there was plenty of hot water but it did run out one morning. It is about a mile walk into town for the shops.

The site is well situated for the whole island and is very popular with our foreign visitors, many of which just stay for a night or two. I will be staying at this site again if and when I visit Skye.

Visited this site during the Easter break, so it was quite cold.

We arrived on Skye and used this site on the mobiles to find a place for the evening. Called John on the site and he gave us directions just outside Portree.

On arrival just so that you are aware to gain entrance there is a narrow bridge, that have to admit looked like something out of 'Raiders of the Lost Ark' so we crossed over, crossing our fingers and toes - all good! ( If you have a big unit I would call first)

John was on site and greeted us, (he is normally there between 5pm - 6pm). We could park anywhere and we did, the views here are quite stunning, albeit the wind does come right up the valley.

There are two shower blocks, because it was early in the season only one was open. The only thing that I would say is when its cold its cold there is no heating in this shower block, so it is a quick in and out. However, all spotless and perfect working order.

We had a problem with our electric and couldn't get it to work (which I've now sorted John only charged fees for no electric. What a gentleman.

Would I go back ? 100% YES

The site is located a couple of miles from Portree. We were charged 12 a night for the two of us and a tent. Most of the grass tent pitching area slopes although a there are a few flatter areas. A small conifer wood along the Western perimeter gives some shelter. The wash rooms are ok. We both found the shower cubicles somewhat drafty although the water was nice and hot. Yet again the shaver sockets were damaged. No shop. You can walk into town along pavements all the way or there is an alternative route through Torvaig and then down over the cliffs.

There is a small Co-op store in the town centre and also a much larger store just out of town. Portree is a quite a tourist centre and comes with the associated gift shops, pubs and restaurants.

From here the Old Man of Storr and The Storr itself make for interesting climbs and the geological formations further North on the Trotternish (Quirang etc) are easily accessible. The Mealt waterfall, Kilt rocks and Staffin beach dinosaur foot prints are also worth a visit.

We can recommend the Glenview restaurant at Culnacnoc, South of Staffin for food (approx. 36 head) but book in advance.

An good site for visiting Portree and the Trotternish peninsula. Shame about the sloping pitches.

This site is just outside of Portree just off of the main road. The site is sloping, with some level standings for campers and caravans but harder to find totally level ground for a tent. We pitched up near an electric hook up, and on a slope - which found us both on the same side of the tent in the morning!

However it is a very pleasant site with good views of the Cuillins, assuming you can see them cos we couldn't! There are a limited number of electric hook ups on one side of the site. There is wifi available for a fee. There are two toilet blocks, only one open as it was late in the season.

The facilities were clean, but utilitarian with stainless steel sinks & all pipework exposed, no private cubicles for washing. There are two showers, one includes the diabled toilet. The shower is a press button one, which only runs for a couple of minutes at a time, there is no curtain so water splashes onto clothes & all the floor is wet so nowhere dry to stand when getting dressed, no stool to sit on either.

This site on a hillside which catches the wind! We were lucky not to be blown away!

Portree is just down the road and worth a visit, especially as there is no shop on site.

Despite having atrocious weather during our stay I would return as it is generally a good site in a good location.

Brilliant site and really pleasant staff.

Upon arriving we were greeted with a member of staff who was welcoming and offered us free rein on where we pitched our tent. There was a good amount of space to pitch. We pitched on a gentle slope which was fine.

The facilities were really good! had a brilliant shower and toilet block.

Was within walking distance from portree which was a great place to be! a few good bars.

One complaint we had was the barrier which was put down which is fair enough to stop non-paying guests entering the site, although we felt that it was kind of restrictive as we had already parked the car in the site before realising it would be down and locked.

All in all an awesome site :D
