As you would expect in Scotland, the scenery was what drew us to this site. Have looked on Google Earth before booking the site and what are expectations were.

The weather sadly was very stormy and windy during the first night and we did experience problems with a tent pole snapping and probably lack of sleep.

The owners were very helpful and even came to the rescue with some of our belongings that we had trouble storing as we would have used an awning instead of a small tent.

The views from the loch side are superb and we did see a few herons fishing. The site is very accessible from the main road (which although fairly busy runs at the main entrance to the site). The traffic you could hardly hear as you are sited on the loch edge.

A superb site and ideal touring base. Will be here again.

We stayed here for 2 nights while touring Scotland. The pitches, hard standing are right at the edge of the lake. You wake up to unbelievable views. The site is part of a working boatyard and the owners were extremely helpful and informative. It is a CL so the shower and loo were clean but chilly but plenty of hot water. The skies were clear at night and the stars were unbelievable. The Northern lights have been seen from here but we weren't lucky. The road is busy and the pavement runs out so it's tricky to walk anywhere but we enjoyed just relaxing and looking at the view! Highly recommend it.

Just visited the site this weekend. Can only say that it's the most spectacular camping location I've ever visited. The view over the loch is stunning and the sight of the sun rising over the loch against a crystal clear sky will live long in the memory.

The facilities are fine. Don't expect them to be of the same standard as some of your more 'corporate' type sites but then again, none have this setting!

I would class this as an 'adults only' site though, as the proximity to the loch may be hazardous for smaller children.

There is one toilet and one shower and one washing up facility. This might not seem like much, but when you take into account there are only 5 hard standing and two grass pitches, and most caravans/motor homes used their own facilities, this is ample. The 8 per night for one person + tent + electric is excellent value for money.

The owner is so friendly and showed me my pitch before giving me a mini tour of the site and facilities. I also purchased a half dozen eggs which came from the hens she keeps on site. Delicious, and such a deep coloured yolk!

The campsite is ideally located, only a few mins drive from the Skye bridge, or 30 mins from Armadale if coming by ferry, and was the perfect base for striking out to see the breathtaking scenery this amazing island has to offer.

I will definitely be back!

We have just returned from 7 nights at this cracking little site.

The facilities are basic but clean and adequate we have a modern caravan with all mod cons so we did not use the toilet and washroom.

There is electric hook up and chemical disposal and washing up basin provided along with a shower room with wc and washbasin. A Washing machine and drying area.

The setting of the site is 5 star, right at the lochside with fantastic views, wildlife(deer otter seals and Heron spotted) and access to boat hire for the more adventurous and fishing folk.

Excellent base for touring the island and close to supermarkets and fuel,

Can not praise enough the owners Cathy and Ian who are extremely helpful and nothing is to much bother. They even delivered fresh caught baked mackerel one morning which we had along with free range eggs from there hens.

If you are looking for a site away from the big commercials this ranks as one of the best in our opinion having toured all over the uk for the last 30 years.

We will definitely be back.

Tiny campsite with some issues.

First- the good bits:

Fantastic scenery. Electric hook-ups on all pitches. Flat pitches. Very helpful owners. Good location to tour Skye from. Within easy reach of the Skye bridge and shops in Broadford.

Now - the not so good bits:

Washing up facility has no running water. You must fill the bowl in the toilet which is also the shower and can become very busy around breakfast time. There is an inherent lack of signposting within the site as to the location of the only shower/toilet.

Stone bed approximately 3 inches below the grass surface of the tent pitch that we used, making life not-so-easy for more inexperienced campers. Not-so-safe site for young children due to the adjoining boat yard.

But, because of the fantastic scenery, we wouldn't hesitate to return.

Reviewer: Carrick mc ghie 1 review from this member

My wife and I arrived with a largish 4 man tent. The weather was dry and had been for some weeks (unlike most of Scotland at the time), but the wind was howling !

The incredibly helpful lady who co-owns the site lent us a smaller tent overnight which could more easily be erected in the wind. She and her husband actually did most of the erecting.

The site is small and basic but the owners and location are wonderful. As mentioned in most reviews, only one toilet and shower, but this didn't detract from our stay in any way.

Cost was very reasonable (12 per night including elec)which is a third of what we're paying next week at a large site on the east coast of Scotland-although that site has a 'chippie' and pool etc. For my wee grandson.

We stayed four nights instead of the two we'd booked and we'll be back. Watching a pair of herons feeding at the water's edge thirty feet from our tent at 5am was unforgettable -as was the hospitality of the owners.
