Dream location...what more could you want!
We love this CL, the views are stunning and the white sandy beaches are great. Our dogs loved it too. It is a basic site but that adds to its charm for us. It's the 2nd time we have been here and we will definitely return. If you don't mind basic camping then you will not be disappointed. Sit back, relax and enjoy the views....brilliant!
Well all I can say about this site is that it is the best site we have been on . Peace ,scenery location just brilliant . we will be back
What a beach
I spent so much time talking about the view in my last review I forgot the beach. Golden sand, almost white in patches, outcrops of rocks, many of which form small islands when the tide comes in. Loads of different shells. The beach goes right round the bay. The bay is only 300 metres wide so is small, sheltered, and very safe. Ideal for children. We first visited this CL when the kids were small. They are now in their late teens but we still go there. I don’t know why more families don’t visit – the beach will keep the kids occupied for hours. We take a kayak and floaties. The water is clear and you can see fish and crabs. On the surface you see loads of birds. We once saw a seal and one September a basking shark. Water is cold – even in summer. CL is on grassy bank about 2 metres above the beach. Easy climb down from the pitches nearer the road. Pitches nearer the road are level so suitable for campervans. All pitches have a view. Those further from the road look more round towards Eigg. Road is quiet.
Our sixth visit
We travel 800 miles round trip to visit this CL. That says it all. Very basic CL on grass. No electrics. But what it lacks in amenities, it makes up for in views. We’ve stayed at over a hundred sites and CLs and this has THE best view from any of them. Even in the rain the view out to Skye, Eigg and Rum is amazing. Even in the mist just looking at the ever changing bay in front of the CL is so relaxing. There’s a commercial site next door. It is a bit scruffy but has a new owner who looks like he’s tidying things up. We have only stayed June or September when there are very few people in the site next door. During our early visits we rushed round catching the ferry to the islands etc. But nowadays we find the pull of the view too great and only leave the CL to buy groceries from Arisaig village shop. We are compelled to site by the van with a glass of wine and soak in the view.
Directions : Turn off A830 onto B8008 Arisaig to Mallaig coastal route, about 2.5 miles past Arisaig on Left. Site outfit, pay at Tigh-na-Bruaich 1.2 mile towards Mallaig on Right.
