Accommodation | Caravan & Camp Sites
The campsite at Camusdarach offers superb panoramic views of the islands and is sheltered by many large mature trees. The undulating grassy surface makes tent pitching easy and offers flatter areas for caravans. The 42 pitches are generous in size and allow parking on-pitch. It is advisable to book a pitch in advance. We are a family site and in order to maintain peace and quiet ask all visitors to arrive by 8:00 pm and no noise after 11:00 pm..
Electric hook-ups (21) are available and should definitely be booked in advance. There are 6 hard-standing pitches particularly for vans and 4 new grass hook-up pitches for large tents. Hook-ups are available in both camping areas and serviced pitches are larger than before. Please note that very large tents, 7m by 7m or larger, will be rated as occupying 2 pitches.
The site has an immaculate, modern toilet and shower block, which includes a laundry with washing and drying machines, washing-up areas and facilities for the disabled and babies.
Effluent from the shower-block is treated by a series of reed-beds which detoxify the outflow water preventing any contamination of the surrounding land. This provides an eco-friendly solution to waste disposal. A separate disposal point is available for chemical toilet waste.
The whole estate is geared towards sustainable land use in the hope that we, as custodians of this small area of the Highlands, can pass on to the next generation a healthy environment for every living thing whether human or otherwise. We have, in the past, been awarded the Green Tourism silver award.
A footpath from the site gives access to the superb sandy beaches used as a location in the film 'Local Hero' which are a mere 5 minute stroll away. We are regularly written up in the national press and have been listed in the Top 10 Beach campsites in the UK by the Daily Telegraph in 2009 and in the Scotsman (May 2008) Ewan McGregor was quoted as saying:
'Probably the World's Best Beach'!!!!
Need we say more.....
A travelling shop visits twice a week providing milk, meat, vegetables, fruit and basic groceries.
