This was our first visit to Skye and the first time we have taken our dog Alfie away with us. This site is in a stunning location and is so peaceful and tranquil, we booked 3 nights in one of the wigwams which we loved. Over the years we have stayed in many wigwams and these were the best by... More

After looking for a dry place to stay for a while, we were extremely happy to stumble upon this place. Within 10 minutes, we were settled down, had a very nice place to stay, an fully equipped kitchen, a good bed and a shower. The owner was extremely friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. Prices were not cheap, but... More

Theresa is an absolutely lovely woman. She took our family in at late notice and couldn't have been any friendlier or helpful. It was delightful and the family thouroughly enjoyed our brief stay. Thank you so much for the warm, Scottish hospitaly.

Arrived by cycle, drenched, in the middle of a gale. Therasa, the friendly owner said she was full, but seeing the state of me, squeezed me in, even laid towels and newspapers out for all my wet gear and made me a coffee. Bunk comfy, good kitchen with a 'honesty jar' pantry for the things you've forgotten, nice eating area... More

Stayed in a wigwam for one night and will return - both the bunks and the bothy also looked great, so might come back as a group! Friendly owners, tranquil location and affordable prices - especially for the wigwams, considering other wigwam sites in Skye. Nice kitchen facilities too and a comfortable nights sleep, much more interesting and memorable than... More

Not the most salubrious accommodation you will find and probably not for those who want a 5* hotel..... But brilliantly situated and set up for mountaineers and climbers. Warm, dry and comfy enough. Plenty of space. Room to cook and sit out in the evening. Well priced. We got on really well with the owner and had a great stay.

I stayed here last year and thought it was good value for money. The owners were friendly and communal facilities were very clean. The local pub in Carbost was a great place to go in the evenings to listen to live music and enjoy a few drinks.

I have stayed at the bunkhouse on a couple of occasions, and have booked to return in 2015. I was in the small bunkhouse, Bothy Beag, which can take up to 4 people, and is cosy and warm. The facilities are completely adequate, and Theresa and Billy, who run the site, could not be more helpful or friendly.

Just spent a week in this place and have only good things to say about it, Theresa and Billy were great hosts, very welcoming. We stayed in one of the three wigwams in the most horrid weather but only ever felt warm and cosy! The kettle came in really handy for a cuppa in the morning ( and if you... More
