Our secluded, peaceful campsite has spectacular views and a woodland walk, offering eco-camping for visitors on this beautiful peninsula with minimal impact upon the magnificent natural habitat.
There are tent pitches with fantastic woodland and coastal views. The eco-campsite includes covered social and campfire areas, composting toilets and an electric shower.
Within the woodland and with full access from the campsite are a beach cave, forest garden walk and wildlife hide. Whether you stay with us for a night or make Skye Forest Camping the base for your holiday in the beautiful Isle of Skye, you will be assured of a warm and friendly welcome.
Nearby there is a village shop (about 10 minutes' walk away), and a garage and post office about five minutes' walk away. There is also a small choice of places within walking distance to eat out.
Things to do include seal, otter and birdwatching, fishing off the pier, Seafari Skye boat trips, highland activities, the castle, gardens and museum at Clan Donald, music events and SEALL (Skye Events for All) events.
If you do decide to spend time on Skye, Walk Highlands has some great Isle of Skye walks.

You can reach us either by taking the ferry or via the Skye Bridge.
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.
