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 wash basin, a wet room (shower, toilet, and washbasin), and a washbasin. Wi Fi is available (charges apply). The rate for caravans and camper-vans is £6 per person per night. Children under 12 are half price; under 5s are free. There is a surcharge for hook-ups of £1 in April, May, and October, and £1.50 in Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, March to cover increased use of electricity for heating etc.
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 everyone else if that is what you prefer. We definitely don't try and pack you together in row after row. 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.
The cost for campers (in tents) is £5 each. Children under 12 are half-price. Under 5's are free.
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.
Dogs are welcome if kept under control and there is an area where they may be walked.
You are welcome to come and wander around before you decide whether to stay or not. If you have any queries please phone or email me.
Budget B&B accommodation is also available about 200 metres from the campsite.
