General

  • Heated, double-glazed and fully insulated island pods
  • Kettle, microwave and coolbox in all pods
  • Showers, toilets and separate washroom

Callanish Camping is a different camping experience now being introduced to the Islands - we like to call it camping with style.

The camping pods, named Sgadan, Breac and Bradan, have mains power and come fitted with low energy lights, heaters and double socket. They are fully insulated, double-glazed and timber pods manufactured in Scotland.

The pods are also equipped with an electric kettle, microwave and coolbox. There is an additional pod about 200 metres away which houses the showers and toilets and a separate washroom.

Catering is available at the nearby Callanish Visitor Centre during the day.

Take the hassle out of camping with the camping pods - no need to pitch a tent, just walk in for an overnight stay or longer and plan the next adventure.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

No unsupervised groups of people under 21 years of age. A small charge of £1 applies for the use of shower (10 minutes).

  • Liked: 

    Remote location. Views. Wildlife watching. Cosy. Weatherproof roof. Lovely Host. Fantastic 2 nights.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing but pods themselves quite small so may be too small for some types of travellers. Caution to those with disabilities due to type of site access and distance from toilet/parking area.

Excellent location very rural 23/06/2017

  • Bradan camping pod

  • Liked: 

    Great location . Lovely sunsets. Very rural and quiet.
    Next to Callanish stones and visitor centre where breakfast is served from 10am.
    Unfortunately didn't manage to see the otters but saw many birds , look out for the grey wagtails on the approach road. Just saw the one salmon jump in the loch.
    Cosy and warm pods with the heater on for a short time.
    Toilet/shower/kitchen pod better appointed than expected, with a stroll from the accommodation pods which we didn't find to be a problem. Water tap near pods.
