A great campsite for exploring the Eastern end of Skye. It is right beside the main A87 road but we chose a pitch in a field well away from the traffic so the noise was not an issue, unlike the midges! A wheel barrow is provided to help with luggage transportation. Initial impressions aren't great with some of the campsite resembling a builders yard with several stand alone toilets (some compost)and showers. Do not be put off. Tom, the owner, is one of the nicest guys you'll meet and the quirky nature of the site just reflects his personality. The main toilet and shower rooms run off 20ps. The £6 pppn charge when staying 3 nights or more is very reasonable too.

There are shops and takeaways at Broadford. Visit Breakish at low tide (walking distance). There is an old well here and even some limestone pavements. Elgol and Kyle Rhea are also worth a visit.

So, in summary, not a classic Skye site, but well worth a stay if you want a good site to explore this end of The island

This is the first campsite you arrive at on Skye when crossing the bridge - about 4/5 miles in. It is situated on the A87 (left hand side if coming from bridge). The entrance sign for the site is quite small, so keep your eyes peeled.

The site itself is as advertised, small peaceful and rustic, with a laid back atmosphere.

You have hard standing pitches with hook up, there is also a grass area for tents and some hook ups. The facilities, you have shower and toilets in the main building, there is also the same in wooden huts.

It's about 3 miles from Broadford where you have a decent sized co-op with petrol station. Post office, pharmacy, fish and chip shop and a few other small shops. On Skye you can get on or off a bus anywhere on the island, just stick your arm out. The A87 where site is situated is on the bus routes.

The owner and manager of the site are both real friendly and run the site really well, helped me out big time with my van (don't buy a T25!). All in all a great site and open all year!

We used this site a good few years ago, came back and found its not really changed.

There are several hard-standing pitches, all a good size with ehu. These are too the left of the main building and there seems to be a further pitching area on the right but we didn't use that.

All pitches had ehu, there was easy access to fresh water fill and a chem disp. The moho waterdump is just stopping over a certain point on the campsite roadway - but water drains away so it does what is says.

Toilets and showers were clean, even though site was busy we didn't see any queues. One shower is in side the block - uses 20p coins dependant on how long you want, the other shower is a wooden outhouse with a £1 coin meter for 10 minutes hot water.

The price seems to have increased a fair bit as previous reviews were quoting £13 with ehu - we paid £20 with ehu, showers were extra. There isn't any wifi on site.

Its a good campsite, very much a work in progress but its friendly, clean and more than a little quirky - and we would use it again even though prices are rising there.

We paid a flying visit for just 1 night to this site on our way through Skye. It was very quiet, and the sign outside said they were closed - however we discovered that they'll allow people to make arrangements in advance during the low season.

Like others we weren't sure if we had the right place as we drove in past piles of old machinery and metal but once inside it was a nice campsite with the hardstanding area broken up by trees. The camping field is quite spacious but a little bit bumpy and I think you have to park away from your pitch but it's not too far to carry things.

The facilities were basic, but fine. I'm not sure how much of a queue there would be if the place was busy but we had no issues.

It's well situated just off the road and has nice walks down to Lower Breakish and the beaches and was a short drive to the large Co-op and petrol station.

The owner wasn't around but the guy who was looking after the place was very pleasant and helpful - even offering use of the landline phone to check if the ferries were running in the bad weather.

Stayed here for 3 nights for a chilled weekend on Skye. Pitched a tent with great weather and great fare prices. Fantastic site, free to pitch anywhere you like in the large camping field. Plenty of open spaces for tents and caravans.

The facilities were spotless and heated which is a real bonus when your camping towards the end of the season, with showers that were nice and hot. Another bonus is the heat racks for those wet days out.

Great views of Ashaig beach and the mountains in the distance.

Nearest town is about 4 miles away which has all the basic things you need and a small co-op.

Really nice and helpful owner, always about when you need him for advice or just someone to talk to about the surrounding areas.

There's also information for those who haven't arrived by vehicle or who are backpackers, for taxis and the local bus with times which is helpful for those who need to go into the nearby towns.

I would recommend this campsite for those who enjoy roughing it outdoors, what you see is what you get, and for us, it was perfect.

Will definitely be back again.

The entrance to the site is not good full of junk, old metal, and a derelict old Croft house etc we weren't sure we were in the right place at first but once inside the site it's a little gem.

Stunning views, beach just across the way. Loads of places to walk doggies.

A perfect location just 4 -5 miles from the Skye bridge.

Only two showers and loos but kept very clean. Plenty of hot water, This site does exactly what it says on the tin. Easy jet not British airways

Value for money only £13 a night with hook up. Pitches are flat and drained well after rain.

Great base for touring. Nice people running the site

Would definitely come back to this site if we come back to the lovely Isle of Skye.

Just returned after a very windy and rainy week in Skye, however this site is a great base.

The toilets and showers are the cleanest I have ever had on a campsite. The old static where you can sit and eat, prep food and use the toaster kettle was great, especially for those walking/ cycling so in very small tents. Loads of info on the local area is available, really clean site. Exceptionally nice views of the mainland, islands and Cullins.

We have just returned to Cardiff from a 7 night stay at Ashaig camp site. What a great little site this turned out to be for our return to camping holidays.

It is everything the owner Tom says it is in his thumbnail description of the site. Both he and manager Mal could not have been more helpful giving advice. The shower/toilet facilities are not extensive but are more that adequate and are kept exceptionally clean. There is a fridge, freezer and dish washing facilities on sie, all under cover. Broadford and Kyleakin are within a 10 minute drive of the site providing all the camper requires. The site is ideally situated for visiting all areas of the island. If you do not want to cook on site then go to The Waterfront cafe in Broadford, on the left just past the Co op or Hectors Bothy in Kyle, the food is to die for!. The charges were more than reasonable, £13. 00 per night which included electric hook up We will be back next year.

Reviewer: Walters-world 13 reviews from this member

My least favourite campsite of our 3 weeks away in Scotland and the Isle of Skye. Our pitch was on a gravel area with several other campervans/motorhomes simply parked couple of feet away from each other like in a car park. But we were only there 2 nights and it was just for sleeping as we were out all day, so it did the job. There were other, better pitches on the fully occupied site, but we were a last minute booking so took what we were given as we wanted to be in that area of Skye at that time.

The small shower/toilet block is clean & modern and there are other more rustic toilets and showers in sheds around the site if necessary.

The owner is very helpful and friendly.

We also stayed at Staffin Campsite and Kinloch Campsite during our time on Skye.

Advertises itself as a quiet informal camp site and it is. Staff very friendly and helpful.

Shower and toilets clean and warm.

Fairly level gravel pitch, electric hook up if needed.

Very convenient place to explore Skye from. Seems quite popular the 'Totally full' sign went up shortly after we arrived having not booked. It was also full when we passed on the way home.
