Head to Loch Greshornish on the beautiful Isle of Skye and you’ll find the Skye Camping and Caravanning Club Site. It boasts an idyllic location right on the loch shore where campers enjoy stunning views over the water to the hills beyond.
The campsite is on a working croft. Magnificent Highland cattle and sheep graze close by and you can buy fresh laid duck and hen eggs at the site shop along with most essentials. There are hardstandings for caravanners and motorhomers with plenty of these pitches enjoying the views.
Skye Club Site also offers glamping with two wooden camping pods and two yurts. The pods are made from locally sourced timber and insulated with wool, enjoy an elevated position with views directly over the loch. Throwing open your pod doors at dawn just as the sun is rising is a sight to behold and well worth making the journey north for. The yurts are British-made and offer luxurious camping including a quality double bed with orthopedic mattress, furniture, fridge, kettle, toaster, electric log burner, and picnic table outside. Skye is also recognised as having some of the darkest skies in Europe, so as night falls lie back and gaze at the stars from your accommodation.
A visit to Dunvegan Castle on the Isle’s west coast is a must. It sits on a rocky outcrop betwixt sea and manicured gardens. Seal spotting boat trips operate from the castle jetty. Not far from the castle Claigan Coral beach is a fantastic place to spend the day. Portree is the main town on Skye, set round a harbour you’ll find the Aros Centre. As well as theatre, films and concerts it’s here you’ll find out more about the Isle through a series of exhibitions.
To catch a glimpse of the sea eagles catch a boat from the harbour.
