Auchtertyre Farm: Wildlife

General

  • Farm site with spectacular scenery just off the North Coast 500 route
  • A five-minute drive from Kyle of Lochalsh; Isle of Skye 10 minutes
  • Friendly animals on site; 1.5 miles from a shop, pub and restaurant

Whether you're touring the mainland's Highland highlights along the North Coast 500 or sailing over the sea to Skye, you'll get a warm welcome at Auchtertyre Farm, a friendly and informal rural spot five minutes' drive to the east of Kyle of Lochalsh.

This family-run spot is on a small working farm, where the owners raise horses and ponies in the shadow of gorgeous nearby mountains. It's generally a pretty laidback place with generous pitches and family-friendly vibes.

When the weather is fine, guests at Auchtertyre Farm are welcome to set up a barbecue for a sizzle or pick up some of the farm's fresh local produce for a picnic. A handy shop, pub and restaurant are on hand a mile and a half down the road for when it's not so fine, all of which are accessible via either a paved route or an off-road path.

The surrounding scenery means that bikers, hikers and adventurous activity enthusiasts will be well catered for here, while history fans will find heritage sites like the gorgeous Eilean Donan Castle within a five-minute drive.

  • Liked: 

    Very adequate for what it was, an overnight stop in very friendly and picturesque part of Scotland very close to the Skye Bridge.

    Disliked: 

    Not checked, It works on honesty. A lot of people are not honest and I can believe people having their prebooked pitches taken by others.

Water toilet waste and two park benches27/08/2021

  • Liked: 

    Fantastic location for the veiws off surrounding mountains

    Disliked: 

    Nothing for kids entertainment and once the sun was going down being bitting by millions of miles was the only past time so it was to hiding in the van with no TV signal at all.
    For just an over night car park it's OK but that's it

From the manager...

I’m sorry that you were expecting evening entertainment for your children. Unfortunately we don’t offer a childminder service, or on-site entertainment. I do hope that your children managed to enjoy meeting and petting our goats…and poultry…and ponies…or that they enjoyed playing in the open freshly cut fields (over 20 acres?!) …..all for the tiny sum of £12 - maybe next time bring a football to play with them? Or a book for after dark entertainment? Or reignite the joy of conversation and campfire fun…..or book your next holiday to butlins….
I can only apologise for the naughty biting midgies ….we do ask them not to bite our visitors but they’re not very selective unfortunately, and as one of nature creatures, they enjoy the free will to go where they please and do as they will. Smidge works well, as does Avon skin-so-soft. I just hope your experience of your own children and negative review doesn’t put off future visitors.

    The easy check in and ability to pay for the extra facilities. The location was good with the site being in a pretty setting. It was well sign posted and easy to find. The pitch itself was flat and well marked out.
