Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Accommodation | Caravan & Camp Sites

Camusdarach Campsite

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.

The site is open from March to October.

You will find us 4 miles North of Arisaig on the Old Coast Road, now B8008, and will see our large red and gold signs at the gate.

Prices for two people for 2012 are from:
Tent pitch: £14/night
Tent on serviced pitch: £19/night
Caravan on serviced pitch: £21/night
