Whitewave Wigwams: Ensuite wigwam with decking

General

  • Luxury accommodation at an outdoor centre on the Isle of Skye
  • A 75-minute drive from the Skye Bridge; 30 minutes from Portree
  • Kayaking, canoeing, climbing, archery and mountain boarding on site

Overlooking seafront Kilmuir village, and with the distinct chance of fantastic sunsets over the Minch, Whitewave Wigwams is a place with top-quality family accommodation. Based on a former croft, there’s plenty of rough field for kids and dogs to run around on – and there’s the major-league bonus of an outdoor centre on hand too.

This is also a fabulous base for exploring the Isle of Skye. Jump in the car to discover medieval castles, spot dinosaur footprints at Staffin and (perhaps) even catch sight of golden eagles soaring among the Cuillin Hills. The ferry at Uig (10 minutes’ drive) takes you to Tarbert on Harris to start your discovery of remote Outer Hebrides islands… but the USP here really is what you can do back at base camp.

Family-run since 1990, Whitewave: Skye’s Outdoor Centre is a place that offers sporting adventures for everybody, regardless of age and ability. Try kayaking and canoeing in sheltered waters, or test your head for heights climbing and abseiling on sheer sea cliffs. There are mountain-boarding sessions for the daredevils among you, or – more sedately – you can practise your aim during family archery lessons.

Whitewave operates a self-service check in, so your keys will be in the door and names on blackboards outside each cabin. There’s plenty of parking and all accommodation is heated and well-insulated against the bracing Skye weather. Uig has handy shops for picking up bits and bobs, and some great seafood pubs too.

    Beautiful place to stay, by far the best pods in Skye for privacy and view. Staff were exceptionally friendly. Personal Fire pit outside pod was an excellent extra.
