Alan Rogers Review

Skye Camping & Caravanning Club site can be found on the banks of Loch Greshornish, the location of this site is both scenic and peaceful. The owners look after the site themselves and everything is very well cared for, attractive and clean. There are 105 pitches, 85 with 16A electricity, of these, 46 are on hardstanding. Most pitches are level with loch views. The site also has two Camping Pods and two Yurts. The atmosphere is very welcoming, from the first greeting at reception to the wave goodbye. Facilities are modern, warm and clean. There is much wildlife in the area and you might be lucky enough to see and hear a golden eagle. The site owns the adjoining loch shore, which is fenced and gated, so fishing (without a licence) is possible.

Non-members are welcome and may join on site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

The site shop sells essentials and a selection of holiday goods, and there is good tourist information and advice from the owners. A long area beside the loch is provided for walking dogs and there is a special dog shower. Portree with its shop and restaurants is not far away. The whole area is wonderful for walking and other sports. Nearby attractions include the Talisker Distillery, traditional yarn companies, Armadale Castle and Dunvegan Castle and Gardens.
