Ashaig campsite on the Isle of Skye, is conveniently placed between Kyle of Lochalsh, and Broadford about 4 miles from the Skye bridge and so provides the ideal base when starting or finishing a tour of the island. There are also many exceptional places to visit from here, so it can be a perfect base for a longer stay. Apart from a lovely, safe, sandy beach five minutes walk away, there are beautiful views of the Cuillin, the mainland and various islands to the North. Applecross can be seen directly across the water. The site is on a working croft, although stock are not present on the croft during the summer season.

For campers with tents, there is a large area of land to choose from, either with shelter or on open ground. The site is large enough that it is always possible to find a spot away from others if that is what you prefer. However, we do restrict numbers so that you do not have to wait too long for a shower or toilet. Because of this it is very advisable to book ahead during the summer holidays. We definitely don't try and pack you together in rows. Likewise, we try to keep the "Do Not" signs to a minimum, and just ask that you show consideration for other campers, who may have young children, or just want some peace and a good night's sleep. We aim to provide a relaxing, peaceful spot, and therefore this is not a suitable site if you wish to "party". For the same reason we ask you to be in and pitched by 9pm on your day of arrival. Anyone causing annoyance to other campers will be asked to leave immediately. Otherwise please make yourselves at home.

You are welcome to come and wander round before you decide whether to stay or not.

If you have any queries, or would like to book, please contact me by email, phone or letter. (Details as above, under the main photo.)

COVID CAMPING RULES

  • There will be NO SHOWERS and NO TOILETS available, at least until 1st Jan 2021.

  • Please bring face coverings for shopping or using public transport.

  • Please observe 2 metre distancing at all times.

  • Please be aware that some locals will be wary of visitors because of Covid, and try to behave in a way that will reassure them.

  • Please provide contact details on arrival in case of track and trace.

  • We may take your temperature with an infra red thermometer when you arrive. If you have a fever I'm sorry but you will not be able to stay.

  • Please book ahead for all trips, events, meals etc as demand might be greater than supply this year.

Important points:

  • Sat Navs may get you lost here. Please visit our Directions page, or use Google Maps.

  • Sorry, we don't take cards for payment. Only cash or cheque please.

  • On the day of your arrival, please be here by 9pm at the very latest, otherwise come the next day. Sorry, no exceptions.

  • I will honour your booking to the best of my ability, but as I am now 70 there is always the chance I might not reach the summer! Therefore it is possible that because of illness (or worse) the campsite might have to close. Every effort will be made by my family to contact you if this is the case.

  • When driving on Skye, whether in a motor home or a car, please use Passing Places to allow overtaking on single track roads if there are cars behind you. Locals know the roads, they are trying to get to work, pick up children etc etc, so please let them past.

  • It would be much appreciated if, when on main roads, you pulled into lay-bys for the same reason.

  • The main tourist attractions are always overcrowded in the summer. Wherever you go on Skye is spectacular, so just open your eyes and enjoy your journey instead of heading blindly for Fairy Falls or wherever.
