Overall rating based
Liked: Just got back from spending 3 nights in Rubha Phoil. The staff gave a very warm welcome and a great guided tour of the site on our arrival. The campsite is ideal, the pitches are nicely spaced out with fantastic views across the bay to Mallaig, the toilets and social area were clean and well kept.
Disliked: Nothing, the site more then lived up to our expectations!
From the manager...
Thanks Gavin, glad you had a good stay. We look forward to welcoming you all back.

The ferry takes about 30 minutes to cross from Mallaig to Armadale, operated by Caledonian MacBrayne who have different winter and summer timetables.
There are daily, direct trains between Glasgow Queen Street Station and Mallaig, from where you can take the ferry to Armadale. This is probably the easiest route to reach here.
Great train journeys
If you travel to Fort William in the summertime, with the aim of catching the ferry, then you can take the Jacobite steam train to Mallaig. This journey has been described as one of the Great Rail Journeys of the World. You can retrace Harry Potter’s journey across the 21-arched Glenfinnan viaduct and enjoy the awe-inspiring wilderness in every direction.
Any train journey to Skye from Edinburgh will be via Inverness and on to Kyle of Lochalsh. The Kyle Line (Inverness-Kyle) is claimed to be Britain’s most scenic railway and achieved world fame when it appeared on Michael Palin’s Greatest Railway Journeys. When you reach Kyle, you need to take the Citylink bus to Broadford. Then, depending on the time of year – check the bus timetables, you can catch a bus to Armadale.
CityLink run buses from Glasgow or Inverness to Skye. They operate different winter and summer timetables.
Once on Skye the buses on Route 50/51/51A/52 travel from Kyleakin to Armadale Pier-not on a Saturday. Please check the timetables before travelling!
Make sure you book in advance for the ferry as it might be busy. Train and bus tickets might be cheaper if you book them in advance, too.
