We have a range of facilities on the caravan site -


  • The toilet block has hot showers, a disabled toilet, indoor and outdoor washing-up facilities.
  • 20 electric hook up points, a hose for filling up your water and a chemical disposal point for toilets.
  • In May 2018 we installed Satellite WIFI. The charge for use is £2 for 24 hours or £10 for 7 days.
  • A laundrette with two washing machines and a tumble dryer - tokens for which are available from reception. The laundrette is open all the time.  You are also welcome to use the washing line.
  • An on-site shop/reception, open end of May until end of August that sells basic food stuff, milk, rolls, ice cream, juice, sweets etc. The reception is at the house when the shop isn't open. Opening hours currently are 12pm - 8pm. 
  • An on-site Chip Shop run by Bev Jamieson, open mid May and closing beginning/mid-September. The fish is freshly delivered from Ullapool and some of the other products are sourced from the local butchers in Lochinver. The Chip Shop is now open Tuesdays - Sundays 5pm - 8pm
  • We have facilities available to freeze ice blocks/packs.  The freezer is located in the Laundrette (or in the house during quieter times). We do not have any facilities for you to keep food.


The beach is situated right beside the caravan site, it has safe, clean waters for a range of activities - swimming, water-skiing, kayaking, sailing - whatever takes your fancy. Unfortunately, you need to provide your own equipment for these activities as there are no rentals available.  The beach has had a "Clean Beach Award" since 2000 and in recent years has been a prime spot for watching the dolphins, porpoises and whales that come into the bay.  People also fish from the rocks or from boats, and a Fishing Competition was established in July 2008.


You are welcome to have bonfires and barbecues on the beach, so long as you clean up everything afterwards and make sure there is no nails, glass or rubbish left around.  Normally, a group of regulars have fires on the small beach known as "Sinky Sands" and they place a stone circle on the outside of the fire pit.  You can have barbecues on the caravan site - just don't burn the grass!



During the Scottish School holidays we get extremely busy, and as we don't have set pitches we do not take bookings for pitches. However, if you ring on the day, or day before, and we know we will be able to take you then we will keep a space for you.  During the busiest part of the season we use an overflow site just a hundred yards up the road that is for tents only. Any other time of year you should get a pitch easily, however some bank holidays can be very busy and the electrics fill up quickly.

 

 

Scott's Castle

Pictures by Becca Hornyak ©

 Behind the campsite, about a ten minute walk over the hill, sits 'Europe's smallest castle' - commonly known by the names "Hermits Castle" or "Scott's Castle".  It's not actually a castle, just a small concrete structure that was built in the 1950s by an English Architect called David Scott.  After months of building he stayed in it for one weekend then never returned.  It sits near the water and is a very popular attraction.  He was friendly with the original owner Donald Munro, who is Margaret MacLeod's father.  She remembers David Scott from that time and if you would like to know anything more about him or the structure please feel free to ask.  

The land that it is on is owned by the Caravan Site owner Margaret MacLeod and is where we keep our sheep and their lambs.  Therefore this is also an No Dogs Allowed area (the park is not fenced fully, therefore if a sheep or lamb gets spooked they could end up on the cliffs or into the water)
