Reviewer: Bessami 1 review from this member

 I am completely new to this type of holiday! So travelled with my friend in her motorhome.

Visited many sites from Notts to Uist! This one was tops!

Yes it sloped a bit but apart from that and a bit of rain it was a great setting with walks for the dogs! All seven of them!

Staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Make sure you keep them!

Toilet block and facilities were spotless.

Unfortunately I only stayed one night so didn't see the area.

I will be back!

 We stayed here at the end of May 2009, chose the campsite because of the great reviews on here and the location.

When we arrived hubby was a bit 'it's all sloped!' but once we got the tent set up it was actually fine and we just made sure our bedrooms faced the right way.

There is a walk behind the campsite that takes you up on to the moor and then over to Staffin bay, its about a 15 min walk or so but def worth it, you can just feel the history!

The midges - hellish if there is no wind but we just resigned ourselves that between 7-10.30 was a stay inside time but there is usually a wee breeze which took care of them anyway.

Facilities - very clean, the wardens were always cleaning and cutting the grass so the campsite is very well kept. They are both knowledgable about the area and lovely people, very approachable.

Staffin - itself is a very small place but you can eat at the place next to the village hall, great home cooked food and people :) you get a discount if you mention the campsite! the columba 1400 was also nice, fresh scampi was fantastic!

All in all a lovely, welcoming site with lovely views of the Quaraing. Great location for exploring the Trotternish peninsula, good facilities (hot clean showers). We are hoping to go back again next year! Amazng part of the world.

Ps - if you can't find the bit to clean dishes, its in the campers bothy :)

 Staffin camp site is in a beautiful location, all facilities were very good toilets showers bothy etc. This is the best camp site I have stayed at in Scotland and Darren and Janine were very helpful.

The price too was very reasonable. Definitely stay there again if going to Skye.

Reviewer: Grand tourer 1 review from this member

 Visited several sites on the island and thought this was the best. All stances were level hard standing, recently upgraded which was good. The grounds were immaculate and the toilets and facility block were spotless clean.The warden let us choose a stance.

There is a bothy for tents with a kitchen for them to use, looked like it was popular with folk in tents. There was also a tourist information room. The area has spectacular scenery and the site gave views of brilliant sunsets. The warden also runs guided walks to some of the hill walks nearby.

On the whole a well kept site which we really found to be a really relaxing spot. Walks nearby just off site were also great with scenery in all directions, dogs allowed. A good spot, C&CC.

 A hidden gem in a spectacular and stunning part of the island. We called in for one night & stayed for several more.

A very friendly site, with great facilities, good clean toilet block with very hot showers (& they are free).

The warden runs guided walks to the Quiraing which was a great day out in the most breathtaking of countryside.

We will be back to try some of his other walks.

Well worth a visit.

Reviewer: Rockaday 3 reviews from this member

 Stayed here at the end of April beginning of May. My wife and I had a really enjoyable time. The site was very quiet, a few touring Vans, and one or two other tents stayed for a night. Our tent pitch wasn't totally flat, although we were able to sleep well enough for 4 nights. We used a hook up and this limited our choice of pitches. The Facilities are basic but adequate, unheated. There is a campers bothy also on site which would have been a comfort if the weather was particularly bad.

The site is well placed for exploring this part of Skye, and for doing the Quirang . An amazing walk through some incredible rock formations.

There is not much in the way of eating places within walking distance, although the Columba 1400 Centre does do excellent grub, and is Licenced, so a bottle of wine with the meal was very welcome. A quiet basic site in a wonderful place.

Reviewer: KHogg 1 review from this member

 One of the most friendly sites that we've visited. The toilet and shower block was very clean and well maintained, and the whole family appreciated the free hot showers. It has one of the most beautiful settings on Skye, with great views to the Quiraing. My wife especially appreciated the Australian flag!
The village had a well stocked shop and cafe in walking distance, and the locals were very friendly. We were made to feel very welcome by the owners, and we'll definitely be back.

 We made it again to Staffin 2007. The owner has introduced some new hard standings which went down well.

The scenery is still spectacular as ever and this site definitely deserves a visit.
Clean welcoming and well maintained

Sorry can't help mentioning the location.

Reviewer: Peterdavis 1 review from this member

 Arrived in pouring rain but found a nice pitch by the access path to the cliff over moorland (very good for dog walking). The site was well maintained with nice hot showers, clean toilets and sinks and well laid out - there were electric outlets for caravans and tents, though level pitches for tents by electric points were limited. The site owner was very friendly and as we stayed for a week we got to know her well and she always made a point of asking how we were enjoying ourselves.

The site was a good choice as we were able to cover most of the island from Staffin and the village itself had 2 good shops with Portrea only 16 miles away which had a Somerfield and a Co-op with good prices. Petrol was slightly dearer than the mainland.

The views and sunsets were spectacular and as this was our first camping trip since childhood and our first holiday in 7 years we enjoyed ourselves so much we plan to return in 2008.

Reviewer: F81ys8 1 review from this member

 Nice site in nice location, good flat area for caravan, found it clean. Village has a good shop with laundrette weather was okay for easter but the site really is located in a great location for views

Toilet block was clean and the site seems to be well kept with usual bit n bobs for such a site

Skye is good for caravanning and you can travel around the island from site to site
