Reviewer: LesD 19 reviews from this member

 We stayed a week at the Staffin Campsite and had a very nice time.

The wardens were very helpful and friendly creating a good atmosphere on the site. They have a good range of leaflets and information in the reception on places to visit and where to go.

The site has WiFi through Highland net. You can purchase cards from reception to log on. The connection speed was good.

The Facilities block has two of everything. Gents 2 free showers with plenty of hot water, 2 WCs, 2 sinks, 2 urinals. A nice touch was the provision of hand wash gel and hot air drier. The Ladies 2 showers, 3 sinks, 3 WCs, hair drier. They were always kept clean and well stocked with toilet paper. There is a washing machine and tumble drier in another room. A separate washing up sink and small sitting area called the campers bothy, more leaflets, chairs & table.

The site is gently sloping and there are several picnic tables that you can move to your pitch and use. The grass is kept mown short.

We didn't need EHU but there are several outlets. Hard standings for Caravans/ motorhomes.

Chemical disposal point in a small outbuilding, in which Swallows were nesting.

Food is available in the village which is walking distance of about 15 minutes. 2 cafes. The Staffin community centre and Columbus 1400. Both are open all day and early evening. We had a meal in each. Colunbus 1400 was our favourite. 2 small village shops & petrol station in the village.

Lovely walks next to the site with a waymarked route to the beach and slipway.

A beautiful location and a very nice site. We would definitely return. 

Date of Visit: May 2013 Unit:  Trailer Tent
Reviewer: TTagogo 6 reviews from this member

 This is a basic campsite but ideal to sample the delights of the Isle of Skye.

We were due to arrive the day before but owing to the distance made an overnight stopover in the Highlands (the time to travel to Staffin in the north of the island is worth considering as it took another hour and a half from the bridge crossing).

The wardens were very friendly and had a quiet and very relaxed attitude to the campsite.

We were the only trailer tent (often the case) with most units being motor homes and the odd caravan and small tent. We had very good weather - which made the holiday - but heard a tale the day before we arrived of a tent being blown away(there is a camper's bothy for such occasions and for bad weather with very basic amenities).

In addition to the bothy there is a loo block (basic but clean)with hot water and showers, a separate washing up building (which houses the bothy) and a small reception area (we didn't use except to pay).

There is no play equipment for children - this is not the point of the campsite, nor of Staffin! The children went to Staffin on their bikes and played in and out of the tent - the older one's also had Wifi!There were no other children on the campsite which wasn't a problem as ours play together.

We took the path from the campsite to the beach once which was fun - but all uphill on the way back! This was the only time we had a few midges follow us back into the tent!

As a base to explore the north of the Isle this campsite is very well situated. The Trotternish Ridge is constantly in view and there is a fantastic drive over to Uig. We did a walk (3 hours long which included paddling in one of the lochs you meet as you ascend)on to the lower reaches of the Trotternish which was nonetheless spectacular. It is also a great place to observe birds - we saw a sea eagle and heard cuckoo's just about everywhere.

Three things the campsite needs:

1. A drying room

2. More than one washing up sink

3. More EHU's on the left hand side field

 I camped in Staffin on my own in my small tent during my hiking trip. The owners were very friendly and helped me a lot. First I could borrow tent pegs because I lost some. Then they made some Tea and Coffee and in the morning I got bread for the trip. Their campsite was very tidy and clean and their facilities were clean as well. Furthermore it was quite cheap.

The landscape around the campsite is very beautiful. Itīs not far to Kilt Rock, to the Old Man of Storr and to the Quiraing. If the weather is fine, you can have a beautiful view to the cliffs at the coast and to the mountains of Trotternish.

I enjoyed the time there very much.

 We really loved our stay at staffin campsite, we were there a week and got a good mixture of the weather.

The camp wardens Bob and Janet are really friendly and helpful and go out of their way to make sure that your stay is as pleasurable as they can.

If you like fishing walking or cycling bob will point you in the right direction if he doesn't end up going with you.

Don't go near the office in the mornings if your feeling hungry as bob has probably got fresh home baked bread in the oven and it smells lovely (we were lucky enough to get a small loaf and it was as good as it smelt).

If you go fishing down on staffin slip way and need any advice keep your eye out for taff he was great and helped us with the fishing and taught the kids to cast and was really good with them plenty of patience.

There is a nice walk from the camp to the beach marked out with white poles so you don't go in the wrong direction.

Toilets and showers were very clean.

If your driving down to the slip in the evening just keep an eye out for the sheep on the road on your way back up.

Will definitely return.

 Nice, well kept, and easy going little campsite just off the main road between Portree and the north, with lovely views over Staffin.

A laid back attitude and an informative office window display for when there's no one to take your money made it a stress free pleasure to check in. Prices very reasonable.

Toilets and showers minimal, but clean and charge free. Picnic tables near to hand and well mown grass largely level.

Easy access to The old man of Stor and a variety of coastal walks. A great place to explore the north of Skye from. Would definitely recommend if visiting the north of the island.

 We were cordial received by the owners. We had a lovely spacious room for our big tent. The sanitary facilities were clean and adequate. The location of the campsite was very nice and quiet.

From the campsite you walk through a beautiful trail in 10 minutes to sea. The view is breathtaking. The site is an excellent base for exploring the Isle of Skye.

We will gladly return.


We werden hartelijke ontvangen door de eigenaars. We kregen een prachtige ruime plaats voor onze grote tent. De sanitaire voorzieningen waren schoon en voldoende.

De ligging van de camping was erg mooi en rustig. Vanaf de camping loop je via een mooi wandelpad in 10 minuten naar zee. Het uitzicht is adembenemend. De camping is een prima uitvalsbasis voor de verkenning van Isle of Skye.

We komen graag terug.

 Visited this site with my partner. The site is sloping but plenty of level bays for motor homes and tents with hook ups.

The site was well maintained with spotless showers and toilets. The wardens bob and janet are very friendly and ready to help.

My partner went kayak fishing with bob. Catching mackerel and pollock. Bob smoked the mackerel and fed most of the camp.

Wi fi, kayaks and cycles available on camp. Mountain walks nearby and a good shop a short walk from the camp

Will be back soon

 This is a well run site by bob & jan. A warm welcome awaits you at staffin campsite and if your lucky bob will take you fishing or hire a bike to get off the main road and see the real isle of skye.

We had a great time at this site sorry to leave. The shop down the road is well run by a lady called effie staffin stores with a nice place to eat next door.

Well worth a visit to this site we'll be back.

Reviewer: Rubid 1 review from this member

 This is a great site for those that love outdoor activities. We loved the camper's bothy that enabled us to cook using our one ring or to wash up, out of the rain. The manager, Bob, was really welcoming, and helpful and this really helped as we arrived in the rain.

The site has good access for fishing-good for mackeral and pollack, pleasant walks over the hill to the slip and is dog friendly. Canoes are for hire-and nothing is too much trouble for the site manager.

The nearby farm sells eggs, bacon and sausages. We will be returning to this site and would recommend a visit.

 Great site, friendly wardens couldn't have been more helpful.

We used the site as a base to explore the whole island. Pitches mostly level, electric hook up easily used, good views from the pitch. Beautiful beach is walking distance but we didn't do it as we had toddlers with us but can see that it would be a stunning short walk. Had fun searching for the dinosaur footprint in the rocks at the beach - am pretty sure we found it! As this site is at the top end of the island & approx an hours drive from the bridge I am sure it is quieter than most which was a big bonus for us. It was one of the few sites on Skye that had electric hook up for tents & the only one that would book in advance - which was essential for us as after having travelled for 2 days with toddlers would be pretty upset to find no pitches available!

Small-ish site meant short walk to facilities. 2 showers in ladies & same in mens. Never had to wait & site was reasonably full as it was the jubilee weekend. Good sized cubicles meant also showering a 2 yr old was no problem. Plenty of hot water. Facilities kept spotless. (Traditional mop & bucket left - having visited France camping for the first time am going to suggest all sites try to buy a window wiper style mop instead! Hadn't seen them before but its great & actually removes any grass or hair in the shower rather than just moving it around as traditional mops do!)

No playground but the 2 boys with us were fully entertained 'digging up the road' ie the circular path round the site! Bob & Janet even lent us a trike they had for the boys for the week!

They had put out a picnic table/benches for our use for the week which was great.

Shop just a minute drive down the road is comprehensively stocked and has a great speedy industrial washer/drier which was great following a toddler accident!

Would definitely recommend & hope to revisit.
