General

Long Beach campsite is located close to Inverie, the main village on the remote Knoydart peninsula on the West Coast Highlands. You can only get here by catching a small ferry from Mallaig, or by walking in from Glenfinnan (2-3 days) or Loch Hourn (1-2 days). See our website for more information on getting here.

Members of the Knoydart Community got together to form the Knoydart Foundation back in 1999, and through fundraising and much hard work they achieved a community buy-out of over 17,000 acres of the peninsular, which they continue to manage 15 years later.
The campsite is run by the Knoydart Foundation Ranger Service, and monies from pitch fees are used to fund the service, with any profit generated being re-invested back in the site. Facillaties include a NatSol compost toilet, a log scribe shelter cabin and a cold water tap.

Fees for 2015 are £4 for a tent with one person, and £3 for each additional person in that tent. Sociable dogs are welcome, and free (please pick up after them). The campsite is open all year round and there is no need to book in advance.

Local attractions

The penisular boast three munros and five corbetts, with several more in the surrounding area. The Ranger Service sell leaflet guides to local walks catering for different abilities. We hold a guided walk every Tuesday from April to October, and are available for hire for private walks and Land Rover tours. See www.knoydart-foundation.com for more information, or contact the Knoydart Foundation Ranger Service via our Facebook page. The Knoydart Forest Trust (community run) manage 800 hectares of woodland on the peninsula and forest trails are abundant.
Inverie has it's own mountain bike track with two routes: a Blue moderate grade and Red difficult option (remember to bring your bike!). The geology of the area is fascinating as Knoydart is home to some of the world’s oldest rocks and there is an old mica mine nearby. Knoydart has a rich history of Vikings, ancient settlements and the Highland Clearances had a dramatic effect on the area.
Free fishing is available in a small loch West of the village and mackerel fishing is popular in season off the pier. There is permit fishing in Inverguiserein River, Loch Bhraomisaig, loch an Dubh Lochan and Inverie River. Loch Nevis is a sheltered sea loch, which is suitable for various water sports and activities. Many sail and kayak into Inverie. There are great swimming opportunities both in Loch Nevis and in nearby river pools.
A National Scenic Area, with wild grasslands & peat bogs, Knoydart is also home to wildlife such as the white tailed & golden eagles, otters, buzzards, barn owls, pine marten, badgers, pipistrelle bats and red and roe deer. Whale watching boat trips are available locally and there are regular sightings of minke whale, basking shark, porpoise, dolphin, common & grey seal. Local boats are also available to hire for day trips to local islands.
As part of the Foundation's land management plan, visitors are able to stalk deer with our Stalkers, with any monies generated being reinvested in land management. As part of our objectives we are required to cull the deer to a level where vegetation growth is enough to encourage a thriving habitat. See www.knoydart-foundation.com for more information and booking details.
The Knoydart Pottery and Tearoom provide breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea, and in the summer months evening meals. The Old Forge is the UK Mainland's most remote pub, also serving evening meals (contact in advance for further information). The Knoydart Foundation Shop stock Knoydart wild venison and goat, and Knoydart farmed Lamb and mutton. In the summer months the shop also sell excess produce from the Knoydart Community Garden. The Post Office also carries a small selection of groceries.
