Other than the stunning backdrop of the cuillins, I struggle to find many positives with this site.

The toilets and showers are very outdated and pretty dirty. Mouldy shower curtains and the floor gets so wet there is nowhere to get dry. Shower just stopped working for a few minutes midway through one morning! One of the push buttons in the ladies only lasts 8 seconds! There is no soap for handwashing, sanitary bins were full. It's a shame because they'd obviously thought about some things - good hand dryers and hair dryers installed.

People staying on site don't respect the rules about noise and there is nobody enforcing the 10pm quiet time. Next to main road so traffic is noisy.

Handy to have pub opposite which does nice food for reasonable price.

This campsite has fantastic views, easy access to the Cuillins, and there is excellent beer from the brewery located in the adjacent hotel which has a large and welcoming bar and food. Trouble is it gets overcrowded and there are a lot of noisy inconsiderate campers, and apparently no noise enforcement.

In a tent you could probably get to the edge of the large site and avoid them but if you need a hookup and a hardstanding you may get people pitching up only feet away. There is no pitch delineation so campervans, caravans and motorhomes cram in any old how.

On the two nights I was there in July (Fri and Sat) one campervan had loud music playing until late, and people standing around outside the facilities talking and laughing until the early hours. At least the turnover is very high so there is the chance of relief, but more likely just some other kind of annoyance.

The recycling consists of a bin for glass and very large bins with an X against all conceivable types of material. Baffling. So everything goes into them. The warden appears to pick out heaven knows what and separate it into bin bags.

The facilities have been slightly upgraded with new loos but are still pretty basic and with wet weather and the huge numbers of campers not very appealing. There are no soap dispensers. They are kept as clean as possible given the large numbers though. The showers are hot & powerful but cramped and don't even have a wee shelf for your shampoo etc. Push buttons don't bother me - you get them on the best sites too. It's not expensive (though the hookup is not cheap).

Go off season is my advice!

Stayed here for one night the beginning of July when we arrived the wardens office was closed so we drove round the site found a space and parked up. The site is in a beautiful location and ideal for walkers and photographers. The facilities are pretty basic but were clean showers were operated by pushing the button so you had to keep pressing it for which is slightly annoying in this day and age but here was ample hot water. We ate out at the hotel which was a short walk from the campsite. As we left early in the morning and still ha not seen a warden we just popped the fee under the wardens door and left.

An amazing location but unfortunately the facilities on site can only be described as poor.

Although the showers and toilets are clean, pushbutton showers are poor quality and unless you hold the shower on with your back to the button, you will have a very poor shower !

There is no dedicated toilet waste facility and the accepted method is to discharge your toilet waste container down a toilet, possibly splashing the walls and floor if you have a slip. You cannot wash out the container.

Sorry, you can wash out the toilet waste container but only with the fresh water hose, we witnessed it happen ! How disgusting and this practice will result in the transmission of waterborne disease at some point.

The grey water disposal is within 2 feet of the fresh water hose, the only fresh water hose !

Very poor facilities in general, considering the overnight charge of 20.

We will not be visiting or recommending this site again.

This site seems to exist because of its location and the views, which are superb. Other than that, there is not too much to commend it.

Having made a booking some time earlier we were lucky that there was EHP available on arrival. Do not expect organisation on arrival. Just pitch up and the Warden will collect your money during the evening.

The toilet and showers are clean. I cannot comment whether the gents is used for cooking when the midges arrive. We were there in May. There are dishwashing facilities to the rear of the toilet block.

This site is like my old school report. 'could do better'.

Having read all the reviews prior to going to this site I was prepared for the midges, the spiders webs and the facilities not being of a high standard, but what I was not prepared for was 23 young people taking over the ladies toilet block with what I would describe as a galley kitchen, they had gas burners on and we're cooking up a storm, mainly onions, potatoes, broccoli. They took over 4 of the 6 sinks and this was because they were in tents and did not like all the midges! They were right next to the showers. I went to the warden and had to go back again as he did not want to miss the end of his programme, when he finally went they still did not come out and when I asked them they said that the warden said they could continue on with their potatoes! This site has brilliant views of the mountains and we used it as we found it to be central for all the island, we paid for a whole week so were unable to move the van when we realised that the warden seemed to allow unacceptable behaviour by the campers. There was no chemical disposal, we did not need it, but there was a steady stream of people coming for the night and taking their cassette toilet into the toilets to empty, not very hygienic. There is a lot of water collects on the site. There is only 1 washer and 1 dryer and this gets very busy considering the size of the site, every day there is a large movement of people coming on and off the site. We would not go back to this site and it is a shame as for location and view this could be the best site on Skye if only they would invest it some more facilities and cater for all.
