Alan Rogers Review of Kinloch Campsite
Kinloch Campsite is in an amazing setting on the shores of Loch Dunvegan. Located in the northwest of the Isle of Skye, it is the only site on Skye with both a stunning waterfront location and easy access to all the services of a traditional Highland village. The site is on a former croft at the head of scenic Loch Dunvegan and is overlooked by MacLeod’s Tables, two distinctive flat-topped hills that dominate the skyline. There are pitches right on the loch shore giving visitors amazing views and making it the perfect spot from which to watch the many and varied birds that populate these tidal waters, including the occasional eagle. Seals are also regular visitors. Dunvegan is the ideal base to explore the north of Skye and is a popular diversion on the North Coast 500. The site has 120 grass or hard standing pitches most with electric hook-up 16amp. There are large tent areas where owners can choose their spot to pitch their tents.
The village of Dunvegan is a five-minute walk from the site and has a good range of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants and other services. Just on the other side of the village is the famous Dunvegan Castle and its magnificent gardens, seat of the Chiefs of the Clan MacLeod for over 800 years and one of Skye’s most popular attractions.

You can get to Skye by the road bridge from the Kyle of Lochalsh which is free of charge. You can also take the historic Glenelg ferry, or the ferries from Mallaig or the Outer Hebrides. If you want to take the ferry from Mallaig to Armadale, you are recommended to regularly check the Cal.Mac. website for changes or disruption to the sailings. You may want to consider the quicker but slightly longer route via Kyle of Lochalsh and the Skye Bridge. There are no tolls on the bridge. From the Mallaig ferry at Armadale head north-east on A851. Next turn left onto A87. Turn left again onto A863 and this will take you towards Dunvegan. Before you reach Dunvegan, turn left at Kilmuir onto Mill Road and the site is off this road.
