Welcome to Ashaig Camping and Caravan Site


What we are: Informal, rural, small, quiet, unspoilt, friendly and relaxed.
What we are not: Well manicured, formally laid out, lively, a corporate enterprise.
Suitable for: People who enjoy the outdoors and want to get a good nights sleep.
Unsuitable for: Groups who wish to stay up late partying, and people who are wanting 'posh'.
Warning for parents: Deep pond some distance from camping field.

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.

Please use a map instead of sat nav to find us, as people sometimes get misled by certain sat navs.

The campsite operates under the Camping and Caravanning Club Certificated Site scheme. This means I'm afraid we are only able to take members of the club. The annual fee is £37, for up to 2 adults and 4 children aged 17 and under. You are able to join onsite if you wish. The campsite provides electric hook-ups (£3) and hard standings for camper-vans and caravans (maximum caravan length 6m including towbar). There is a drive over service point for grey water and a chemical toilet disposal point. There is a new shower and toilet block with a toilet and washbasin, a wet room (shower, toilet, and washbasin), and a washbasin. The shower is on a meter, 2 mins for 20p, 4 mins for 40p, and so on. Wi Fi is available (charges apply).

The rate for caravans and camper vans (with electric) is as follows:

  • One night, £25 per pitch (2 people)
  • Two nights, £22 per pitch (2 people)
  • Three nights or more, £20 per pitch (2 people)
  • Additional adults, £5; children under 16, £3; under 5, free.
  • Discount for single occupant £3
  • If electric hook up not needed, then £3 discount.

The rate for campers in tents is:

  • One night, £9 per person
  • Two nights, £8 per person
  • Three nights or more, £6 per person
  • Electric hook up, if required is £3 per pitch
  • Children under 14 are half price, under 5 free

I'm sorry, I don't take cards, so cash or cheque please.

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 light fires if you wish, and we provide several spots where you may do this. There is usually a plentiful supply of wood and a saw so you can cut your own.

Dogs are welcome if kept under control and there is an area where they may be walked.

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.)

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.

  • 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.
