Amazing location right next to the shore. We came right at the start of season. Cant recommend this site enough.

The owner is wonderful and the place spotless. Fires are allowed on the beach and what a better way to spend a night than star gazing. Our dogs absolutely loved it too.

We will definitely be back. There is a handy water point and kitchen area with laundry facilities. A wonderful gem of a place.

Just back from another wonderful weekend at this idyllic setting.

Weather was disappointing, especially since everywhere else had a mini-heatwave, but it doesn't detract from the beauty of the place, and it didn't stop us enjoying ourselves.

Joyce was very busy, as usual, with 101 jobs to be done when there's livestock to be tended to as well as campers and caravanners.

We just love the place and we can't wait to get back.

The access lane from the road is very potholed and narrow, and it is on a working croft with cattle, from the road side you might wonder what you are coming to, but as soon as you go through onto the campsite and see the amazing views and stunning white beach you can see why this place is so popular.

We arrived just after lunch and were lucky enough to get one of the flat hardstandings, a lot of the pitches are on grass and quite uneven for larger motorhomes but fine for camper vans, and most have electric hook up.

By early evening the site was full, this was in April, so you will probably need to book well in advance for the summer.

The toilets and showers are dated but spotless, but you don't come here for the facilities, you come for the laid back atmosphere, amazing views across to the islands and the fantastic beach, yes it is a very exposed site but if you are lucky enough to get good weather it's beautiful.

There is no service point as such but there is a water point on the way into the site, and if you ask the owner will show you where you can dump waste water on the lane, not ideal but at £17 per night you can't complain, would certainly use the site again.

We have stayed here on several occasions. As has been said this is a working Croft, but until you stay here you won't know what the attraction is - so just do it. We brought some friends with us this time in their tourer - they loved it.

The owner, Joyce, is very helpful and keeps the facilities clean, although usable, they are dated.

Have a look at the other reviews for a balanced opinion, but to us, this is heaven and we will be back again and again.

When we arrived we had a warm welcome by some very friendly horses.

By the time we got there it was getting dark and Joyce told us we had missed a lovely sunset.

We decided to camp on the very edge of the beach (not a good idea as the guy next to us told us)

The stars in the sky were amazing, it was very still and calm.

We got the tent up and settled in for the night, at 2am there was a very high wind, our tent collapsed on us, but we were so tired we just went to sleep.

When we got up the next morning, we had a good laugh at the tent, it was a lovely sunny day and the beach is awesome, had a wee walk.

The only downside is the toilets are a bit far to walk to in the dark, but this will not stop us going back next year. Would highly recommend this site.

Just back from our second visit to this stunning little site. We arrived in a blizzard and the place was white, but the sun soon came out and the snow on the pitches disappeared in minutes.

However, the views of the snow covered mountains on Eigg, Rum and Skye were truly amazing. Nothing has changed since our last visit, and although some people may think the toilet blocks are dated, hey, you're getting a piece of heaven for £17 a night - get real.

Tried to book again for the end of this month (May 2016) but Joyce is already fully booked, and why am I not surprised.

Stayed for a couple of nights in a tent in the first week of September, we were allocated Pitch 6 directly next to the beach, with a children's slide to access. I have spotted reviews that said not many pitches had beach access, at a guess I would say at least a dozen had, with only a few that were a maximum of 20ft away (must be too far for some!).

The weather was amazing. The sunsets better!

Joyce was very friendly and quickly replied to any Facebook messages I sent.

There is a small reception at the house with basic provisions available to buy, including her own highland beef - we didn't purchase as we brought food with us :-(

We took the kayaks and went into the crystal blue waters, we walked the white sands. WOW.

There are four toilets and two showers, arranged as 2 toilet/shower rooms for gents, 2 toilet/shower rooms for ladies, 1 toilet gents, 1 toilet ladies. Clean, basic and very hot water (included in the price).

Other reviews have mentioned there is nothing to do. Rubbish. You go here to get away from it all and have a proper outdoor experience, Mallaig is only about 6 miles away, Fort William about 35 miles away (with Ben Nevis if you are able). Get on your push bikes, use your kayaks or use walk the miles and miles. There isn't a better location in the UK I can think of!

Reviewer: PilgrimPhil 77 reviews from this member

We stayed here for 5 nights at the end of August 2014 in order to attend a family wedding at Arisaig House.

The site has a semi-formal layout in that there are numbered pitches but where you actually position yourselves within the general area is up to you. You can be in quite close proximity to your neighbours though.

There are excellent views out towards Eigg & Rum providing you are at the top of the site i. E. On the shoreline but the walk along the beach, when the tide is out, is superb.

The showers, toilets & washing up areas are getting very tired and could really do with an upgrade given the nightly site fees charged. There was some building works just starting on site but that was outside the boundary of the site, so probably not campsite related.

The main water fill-point is on the way into the site – it looks like an EHU bollard, so we missed it first time around!

The village of Arisaig is about 2 miles away and has a SPAR shop, a café & a tea room/craft shop at the marina.

There is a newly opened Caravan Club Certificated Site immediately next door and has the same views as Invercaimbe but with a less crowded environment. If we had known about this site at the time of booking, we would have probably stayed there instead.

That’s just our personal preference for a smaller, less “busy” site.

We have just returned after a 3 day stay here and all I can say is I wished we could have stayed longer.

What a gem of a campsite

You don't get more unspoiled than this, as per previous comments, it is very remote and there is nothing to do for miles, other than sit on the beach, go crabbing, chilling out and walking on the beach, HEAVEN!

Knowing what the site is and where it is, you simply cannot moan about there being nothing to do or lack of facilities near by, as this is on the west coast of Scotland and it is about as remote as it gets.

Parking in Mallaig is free, we managed to park our camper in the harbour without any problems at all, and caught the train to Fort William over the famous viaduct.

Yes there is only 1 shower for men and 1 for women and 1 toilet for each, and they are a little dated, but you get what you pay for-we were charged £14 per night-had this been in Cornwall it would have easily have been double.

With views to die for and the fact that it is so unspoiled, I would go back in a shot.

The wind is one to watch though.

The owner is very easy to get on with and will do all she can to make your stay enjoyable.

If your looking for peace, quiet and tranquility then I would recommend this place every time.

Cant wait to go back.

Yet another fantastic visit to this wonderful site. I was a bit dismayed by the review left by Lobey Dosser. This site is an extension of a beautiful beach with easy access from nearly all pitches. The site is a bit uneven but the individual pitches are well levelled. There is plenty to do and see if you travel near or far from the site and indeed visit the neighbouring islands. There is usually a breeze on the site which is ideal for keeping away the midgies and this part of the world has it's own wee micro climate with pleasantly welcoming shores. Water temperature is pleasant too most of the year. The owner Joyce Wilkinson is a lovely lady who is always happy to help with advice or assistance and can certainly give pointers on places of interest. One of the beautiful things about this site and this part of the world is the quality of life it affords you. I'm due to head up before the close of the season, this will be my fourth visit this year. There are spotless services available on site and superb laundry facilities. Ideal for families and a child safe beach with access to many neighbouring beaches. Ideal for canoeing and fishing. Very dog friendly but please be responsible and tidy up after your dog. I honestly cannot fault this little diamond of a site. Please consider visiting this site towards the season end as well as in the summer high season and see the beautiful changes that occur on the skyline and the flourish on the hillsides. I'll continue to return here for many years. A very reasonably priced site and the owner offers for sale her delicious hillside highland reared beef. Fabulous. Please visit.
