 I booked this on the web before setting out from home, so was unsure what we would find. We chose it because we were arriving in Skye by ferry to the port of Armadale from Mallaig on the Scottish mainland, and it appeared to be near the sea.

On arrival, this Caravan and Camping club CS site seemed a tad shambolic. However, once we met the owner and he pointed out all the sites attributes it was apparent that it would more than suffice for a single night stopover or for a longer stay.

The facilities included a driver over drain for motorhome waste, two pay showers, a couple of toilets, a washing up sink, an Elsan point and hardstandings.

The site appeared to be split into two halves, the C&CC CS with its obligatory five pitches and on the other side of the main building there was further pitches and tent field.

The owner was very helpful and was happy to talk about the island and give directions to places to visit.

We set off towards the sea with the dog using the road opposite. However, On the gate adjacent to the cattle grid was a warning that there was a Bull grazing the land and that you needed to proceed with caution. We opted for the coward’s way out and headed further up the A87 until the next road towards the sea. This was a long walk but we were rewarded with a great walk along the tidal estuary that was visible from our pitch.

To summarise the site isn’t the poshest place we have stayed but it has all you will need and is easily accessed from the A87.
