 Friendly helpful owners. They will pick up takeaway for you if you want.

Local community shop but closed fairly early so shut when we got there.

Quiet location.

Toilet block closed due to covid which we knew in advance.

 Pleasant, spacious site; near to local facilities (shop and takeaway), but Portree is more of a drive away.

If you come off the ferry at Uig and you have a biggish motorhome, be aware that the route over the top is shorter, very scenic but contains a couple of steep hairpin bends.

Flexible and friendly, which counts for a lot.

 Loved this site. So clean and tidy. Spacious pitches and lovely, friendly staff.

Location is excellent, only five minutes to Staffin Bay and well stocked local shop/ takeaway.

We enjoyed our stay very much and would definitely return.

Reviewer: ST CLAIR 11 reviews from this member

 Visited just after the site had opened after Covid, place was immaculate and very well kept. Owner had reduced capacity and motorhomes only. Everyone was self contained and felt really safe on site.

Owner was continually sanitizing and washing chemical toilets, sink areas, chemical toilets as we watched.

They offered a reduced price of 20pn as toilets/showers were closed

Weather was exceptional and care and attention was excellent.

Felt very safe especially with their reduced capacity.

 Stayed here during my trip round Skye.

Very pleasant couple run the site.

Nice walk over fields down to the beach on search for dinosaur prints.

Shower room dated but clean, good hot shower.

Nice Cafe in town run by local charity.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 107 reviews from this member

 We stayed here a couple of nights whilst exploring The Trotternish Peninsula. The site is in a sheltered hollow/dry valley and there are some nicely sheltered pitches if required. Most of the grass area is sloping but there are some level pitches cut out. Since the weather was fairly calm for our stay, we found a pitch at the top end of the site with great views up to the Quiraing.

The campsite is well maintained and the toilet and shower facilities are good (and 'free').

Whilst here you must climb the Storr and walk through the Quiraing. You can also go in search of dinosaur foot prints on the beach at Staffin.

 A nice little site with a friendly welcome.

Facilities were dated but clean and functional, also showers were free. Best of all for us campers with only outside cooking facilities - a kettle and a microwave!

Would definitely stay here again.

 Meet by a very friendly couple on arrival who made up feel very welcome. Showed us to the pitch and took us round all the facilities. Showers are hot and free very clean as are the wash areas. Some of the pitches you will need to level your van. The grass areas are well cut and maintained.

The view of the Quirang as the sun goes down is special

At night it is so quiet and truly dark.

We will return

 Nice site, well kept with friendly owner. Some pitches individually dug out of hill, but other hardstandings not marked out and became quite closely pitched together by end of evening.

Nice walk from back of site across hill to beach.

Reviewer: Walters-world 13 reviews from this member

 The drive from Portree to Staffin is one of my favourites on Skye.

A neat and tidy campsite ideally suited for visiting the Trotternish Peninsula. It is in a sheltered spot with lots of trees surrounding the site, but unfortunately that means there are no views from the site.

The road into the campsite from the main road is littered with large potholes so a slow speed is essential, but once on the campsite it is OK.

Facilities were clean and tidy.

We were only there one night but needed to do some washing. There is one washing machine and one tumble dryer and there is a system for writing down on a wipe board who is next to use the machines. The machines are basic domestic machines and the washing machine only has a 1000rpm spin capacity which means the clothes are still very wet when they come out, so you end up spending a lot to dry your clothes in the dryer! 
Management response: Thank you for visiting us and taking the time to review our site.

Regarding the trees - there is a perimeter fence that holds a tree line. I would never remove these as they provide main shelter to the campsite. To say that there are no views from the campsite is wrong, we have some of the most beautiful views in North Skye and often receive photographic groups who will use the site as a base. Look at other pics on other websites. The trees are very handy when the Skye weather turns and we deliberately place motor homes or tents against the trees to provide cover. The far end and opposite end of the site holds views across the nearby mountain range.

I also refer to a pot hole on the access road,this road is owned by the local council and time and time again we ask for repairs to be made, however we are at their mercy when it comes to repairs and cannot do more than ask. Local budgets, resources etc all add to the complexity of road repairs in the area. We recently spent over 2000 with a local contractor ensuring that the roads that are onsite were treated after a harsh winter.
