Recently voted 1 of the 12 Best European Campsites by the Daily Telegraph, located on Skye’s rugged West coast at the foot of the Black Cuillin Mountain range and the shore of Loch Brittle, Glenbrittle Campsite is an ideal base for some of the finest rock climbing and hill walking in Britain. It is the ideal campsite if you want to escape the hustle and bustle of busy life; it has no mobile signal as it is 7 miles at the end of a single track road - but who needs a mobile when you have fantastic scenery surrounding you in every direction.
