Glenbrittle, Isle of Skye, Highlands – Scotland

This is the only way in. And out. Of Glenbrittle.

8 miles down a narrow single track. The drive alone is epic and at the end of it we find our reward: our Cool Camping Scotland stop for the day:

With a gorgeous sandy beach [where you can pick your own mussels!] and a mountain view to die for this place is a definite *must go* should you ever come to the Isle of Skye.

The pitches are massive. And beautiful. The more beautiful ones don’t have a hook up so we decide to go without and don’t regret it! The feeling you get from pitching up in an amazingly beautiful spot that overlooks some impressive mountains and is a stone’s throw away from the sea is simply……well, priceless! ^-^

There’s a shop on site that sells basic provisions and useful hiking gear and the facilities are faultless. We find out the site is owned by the McLeod family (the very same that owns Dunvegan castle) and that visitors to Glenbrittle automatically qualify for a 10% discount when visiting the castle. So don’t do what we did (castle first, then Glenbrittle) but pitch up first, then go to the castle.

We make some burgers and throw them on the barbie, add some nice cheese and stick ‘em  in a bun, then wash it all down with some Buds.

Tomorrow we’re leaving the Isle of Skye and begin our journey home. As for now, life in the van is fab!

The verdict:
Glenbrittle campsite, £14 without EHU, dogs £1/each.
This one’s easy: 5/5, straight up! Gorgeous site. Large, clean & very attractive pitches. Facilities are excellent. Scenery’s out of this world. I wish we had had nicer weather (after all, we went in August!) but genuinely can’t fault it. Along with everything else we came across on the Isle of Skye: loves it!!!!

    • We were *lucky*…..it rained most of the time so there were no midges ^-^ I know what you mean though, they eat you alive in Scotland, so we bought some very attractive face masks ;)

  1. Hi, stunning pics. As an avid camper from South Africa, I believe its important that we enjoy our surroundings.
