Welcome to Ashaig Camping and Caravan Site

THUMBNAIL SKETCH

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'.

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.

The campsite, which is a certificated Camping and Caravan Club site, 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. Wi Fi is available (charges apply).

The rate for caravans and camper vans is as follows:

  • One night, £8 per person
  • Two nights, £7 per person
  • Three nights or more, £6 per person
  • Electric hook up is £3 per night per pitch
  • Children under 14 are half price, under 5 free

The rate for campers in tents is:

  • One night, £7 per person
  • Two nights, £6 per person
  • Three nights or more, £5 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". 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.)
