We are delighted to confirm that following a closed period during 2017, this site will reopen in 2018 for camping, motorhome and caravanning pitches.

We were warmly welcomed by Cathy and properly shown all amenities. Great to place our Motorhome on clean, hard standing pitch. The Loch and outstanding natural beauty of this site will be remembered for always. Peace and perfect tranquillity for those, like us, who search for quiet and very amazing locations. So practically equipped with two toilets and a spacious, well-thought out shower room. Everything so clean and comfortable. There is a slight bend and incline from the road but, after many CL sites that we have encountered, all over Great Britain, this was not a problem. Distance from the Skye Bridge and Portree was negligible when one realises the sheer wonder of this gem of a site. Our only difficulty is. Trying to arrange another visit as soon as possible. Thank you so much for this experience.

Jean and Michael.

This is a small certified site situated at strollamus, about three miles out of broadford. The site has stunning views up and down the loch and beautiful sunsets on a clear night. A couple of resident herons park themselves every evening a few yards along the water's edge and, although we didnt see them, whales were seen swimming in the loch around the corner.

You will be greeted on arrival by either ian or cathy. They will show you round the facilities and offer any help necessary to get you safely sited.

They are both very friendly and helpful and will do their best to make your stay enjoyable.

If you don't mind a rustic site, look no further! The views and friendly service far outweigh what may be lacking in terms of the normal commercial site. Remember you are camping, you are not at home!

There are two toilets and one roomy shower with plenty hot water any time of the day. Sinks and toilets are kept nice and clean. Shower could do with a re-grout and steam clean but serviceable enough if you dont have your own facilities. Fresh water is available as are grey and chemical waste water disposal points.

We checked in to this site for two nights and ended up staying eleven! That says it all.

It is very well located for simply pitching up and using it as a base for exploring the whole island, as it is within easy striking distance of most of the places you will want to visit. And there are many, too numerous to mention. There are of course numerous nice sites on skye but you would be hard pressed to be better located. This is one of the first sites you will come across after crossing the skye bridge so it is well worth stopping here first before you explore any further.

Strollamus is only three miles from broadford, where there is a co-op supermarket, spar shop and a variety of eating places and plenty places to browse round at leisure. We only ate out once at cafe sia which had a varied and interesting menu. We can highly recommend its fresh seafood pizza which was baked in a wood-fired oven. Accompanied with a delicious salad with chunks of fresh mozarella, it was sufficient for two to share. Coffee is amongst the best on the island.

You must visit dunvegan. You will no doubt visit the castle there, but don't miss a visit to the old bakers shop which has a very reasonably priced take-away menu and the most amazing apple turnovers!

For absolutely stunning close-up views of the cuillins take time to drive to glen brittle. Drive as far as the glen brittle camp site and you can have a coffee in the tiny shop there. But it is quite expensive.

Also worth a visit is the oyster shed take-away just a mile or so past talisker distillery. Again a remote and rustic establishment but with stunning views from the covered eating area and a great array of fresh seafood to be had at a very reasonable price. Never tried an oyster? This is the very place to have a go! A new experience for 1.

No visit to skye is complete of course without a visit to portree where there seems to be more foreign visitors than scots! Plenty places to browse and fish and chips eaten on a sunny day at the sea front completes your day out there.

A short trip from strollamus is armadale pier. An afternoon there was very productive for us with six large mackerel caught and ultimately eaten. Delicious! A small cafe and take-away at the pier makes this a nice easy outing from strollamus and the road to get there is very good. Jump on the ferry to mallaig from armadale. Even although mallaig is just a small fishing village it is worth a visit. Again nice seafood and fish and chips here and no need to take the car unless you want to visit further afield.

Unfortunately we did not have the best of weather on skye apart from a couple of days but even so, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Just means we'll have to go back again to catch the sun.

Kathryn and I had a fantastic holiday on this beautiful campsite. The owners are such lovely friendly and exceedingly helpful owners and we will definitely be visiting here again. The owners hens lay the best eggs ever and Ian is so very helpful with practical things that can make life so hard on holiday like unhooking the caravan water pump! I am so unpractical. The weather as usual was disappointing but it was atmospheric and beautiful anyway and we treated ourselves to a few lovely meals seafood of course. We were enraptured by two friendly seals which we watched from just outside the caravan window and watched the fish jumping out of the loch so relaxing.

Thank you both once again for a lovely stay Beryl and Kathrynxx

A fantastic location with every pitch overlooking the Loch and it would be hard to get closer to the water. Very friendly and welcoming and we stayed 2 nights rather than just one as we had intended. On the negative side the road was very close and noisy in the daytime and a real pity the showers were a bit grubby and not really up to scratch but this could easily be rectified.

The owner is a pleasant kind knowledgeable person who will help you with any campsite queries. Small campsite, care should be taken when entering or leaving the site due to the angle of the driveway. Facilities, EHU 16amp, 2 WC & Shower, Waste disposal, Fresh water, Washing machine/drier, washing up area, Recycling and Midges in the early evening to irratate you. Motorhomes/caravans no bigger than 7. 3m and a few tents.

Not suitable for small children or those few children that are unable to swim due to the adjacent unfenced sea water ( Deep in places ). You can swim/paddle in the sea or just search through the rocks/seaweed for maybe shells or tiddlers. No sand. There are many many places to visit on the Isle of Skye including one at Ord. A lovely tale about an Acarsaid house. You will find a skeleton of a Each Uisge Earballach (Long-tailed Water Horse)and Less obscure is the two acre garden with its excellent collection of alpine and other plants, all blessed with a dramatic view across Loch Aishort to the Cuillin

Portree is the Capital and the Main supermarket for the isle is the Co Op. Weather was superb during our stay infact very very hot and sunny.
