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.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
