 What a gem of a site, the Cullin Mountains, a group of Munroes, making a fantastic backdrop. The site is at the end of an 8 mile single track (with passing places), once you pass the Fairy Pools (after 4 Miles), traffic becomes easier, then look out for sheep and other wild life that uses the road as well

There is an allocation for the 37 Electric Hookups at 12pm each day - first come first served; not understanding this our first night was "wild" camping the next three were on hookup.

We never used the toilet block or showers (we used our own), not that there was anything wrong with the ones on site. The site has a lot of "pockets" for tents to hide in, there is more of a field area for Caravans/MotorHomes/Campers.

There is a Motorhome service point on site.

The gently sloping beach is grey sand and comes straight off the site, the sea was warm and the bay is sheltered, each day you can get barista coffee, hot chocolate and various freshly cooked pastrys from the reception, you can order fresh bread for the following day.

We planned an overnight stay and then to move on, we stayed 4 days using this site as a base to explore and do some serious R&R. Lots of life some more wild than others - deer, sheep, cows, geese, sea birds, visit the surrounding fields.

So many types of walks from the site, whether walking or climbing the Munroes or walking to the end of the bay (3-4 miles). The views are magnificent the surrounding area stunning.

Definitely a place to come back to.

 Absolutely lovely location. And the staff were so helpful and lovely.

Ordered the olive bread for the next morning, which along with the coffee, set us up for the day.

Will definitely return.

 This site really gives the feeling of being out in the wilds with picturesque scenery on route.

Check-in was friendly and speedy and the coffee shop is lovely.

The facilities are excellent with a real emphasis on Covid safety maintaining a high standard of cleanliness.

The site is close to the famous Fairy Pools walk which is a must on your visit.

We would definitely stay again if in the area.

 As others have said this site is remote but I don't agree with the negative comments about the road. Yes it's narrow but many roads in Scotland are the same, careful driving and anticipating others is advisable.

My only negative is the state the showers were left in even though there was a mop and bucket very few people seemed to use it and the floor looked a muddy mess.

Great staff in the shop, nice baking. Didn't try the coffee unfortunately.

 Great location; good shop; showerblock good

Beach at site and phenomenal outdoor sports area

2 negatives only - chaotic pitch management - people returning from days out to find their pitch taken; beach outfall from toilet block whiffy - maybe overloaded at a busy time

 The campsite is in a stunning position by the beach, and does not run a booking system, but is quite large and has many pitches.

However the toilets (esp gents) are somewhat overloaded and cramped with only 3 cubicles, two urinals.

This is a popular site, some nights it is packed and there is generally a small queue for the showers, cubicles or even urinals at any time of the day.

The shop sells coffee and freshly baked croissants and some fresh bread but does not sell basic essentials so bring all food supplies with you.

The access road is single track so allow time for driving the 8 miles or so.

 Great beach, no sand, typical black grit that stains everything that comes into contact with.

Perfect if you are traveling alone or on the run.

Many other sites on the island offer more.

 Lovely site and very friendly and accommodating staff.

We originally booked in for 1 night but stayed another as it was so relaxing.

Showers are really nice.

 This is a great little campsite, in stunning surroundings.

We were quite unlucky with the weather whilst we stayed and we did realise that it is quite a long way from any "wet weather activities" which was probably more problematic for us as we were travelling with our young children.

It is a perfect campsite to go off and explore on foot up into the cuillins etc.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 119 reviews from this member

 This was our second visit to this site. We returned to find it a lot busier than 6 years ago. On the drive down you'll pass the Fairy Pools, now completely trashed by erosion from thousands of tourists' boots. The single track road gets extremely congested with cars and campervans and the verges are churned up from parked and passing vehicles. We saw several campervans stranded. Chose your time of travel carefully!

Once at Glenbrittle, you'll discover what was one of the best sites on the Island. Its popularity is now such that you'll need to book ahead at peak times.

There is a small shop/café but I suggest arriving stocked up with provisions for the duration. The a shower and toilet block are OK.

The site faces West and the wind is channelled up the loch. There is very little shelter so larger tents may be unsuitable if the wind picks up.

The walks down along the coast to The Viking Canal are awesome and the mountains behind have to be climbed. Unfortunately for the second time now, my ascent of Sgurr Alasdair 992m via the Great Stone Chute was shrouded in mist!

I will be back.
