The Fauld Farm on the Isle of Mull

1 unit · Motorhome, Tent50 acres · Scotland
The Fauld is a small hill farm located close to Tobermory in the north-east of the stunning Isle of Mull in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. In total, the land comprises around 150 acres - although most of this area tends to be grazed by our Highland ponies and Shetland/Cheviot sheep. In spring and summer, there are wild flowers and birds galore, and bracing fresh air is on tap all year round - as are the spectacular coastal views from the top of the hills. The farm lies within walking distance of the iconic and colourful fishing port of Tobermory, which offers a range of shops, cafes and pubs - as well as being home to the Tobermory Distillery at Ledaig. If you have a car, we can offer off-road parking for a couple of vehicles, and we also have parking space for two campervans (though we do not have water or electricity connections yet). PS: You are advised to come equipped for camping in wet conditions whatever the season - although we promise that the weather can be lovely too! We look forward to welcoming responsible, country-loving campers to The Fauld :-)

Highland & Transylvania Glamp. Pod

2 units · Glamping1 acre · Roy Bridge, Scotland
Glamping pods in a large garden alongside the river Roy A 10-minute drive from Loch Lochy and 20 minutes from Fort William Seating in the garden and kitchen and ensuites provided Right on the side of the river Roy, the Highland and Transylvania Glamping Pods is a properly cosy base in the Scottish Highlands. The large garden has a terrace, river views and a seating area, but perhaps the best bit is that it’s located a short drive from lochs, glens, rivers and long-distance trails. What might you get up to? Climbing, hill walking, mountain biking and water-based sports are all on the agenda in this area, but especially in Fort William (20 minutes’ drive) and Lochaber, which have been ascribed as a capital for outdoor adventures. Scotland’s highest mountain, Ben Nevis, is also 20 minutes’ drive away. Even closer is Loch Lochy (10 minutes’ drive), which has access to part of the 79-mile Great Glen Way (around 10 minutes’ drive). From Fort William, start off on another long-distance trail, the West Highland Way, which stretches for 96 miles across the banks of Loch Lomond and ends in Milngavie. The pods here have been named after the places where the owners spent their childhood and continue to live. Feel free to stop off while travelling to or from the Isle of Skye (two hours and 10 minutes) or stay for a good while… Fort William’s centre has a splendid selection of pubs, restaurants, shops and a bus and rail station. Plus, there are lots of links courses for golfers a day trip away, like the Royal Dornoch (two hours and 25 minutes). Both pods have a small double bed (a bit narrower than a standard double) with all bed linen provided. The kitchen areas are equipped with a fridge, microwave, kettle and toaster (crockery, cutlery and towels are handily provided). To keep things nice and tasty, the pods are also well insulated. The patio doors and the rear opening window are both double glazed and there are electric radiators to inject some extra heat into the kitchen and living area.

Campsites near Portree guide

Overview

As the main town on the Isle of Skye, Portree provides an excellent base for exploring the rest of the island, while staying close to the comforts of a (relatively) bustling settlement. Here, in contrast to the more remote parts of Skye, you can take your pick of places to eat and stock up on supplies. It’s also a cultural hub thanks to its Aros Centre, which runs a busy program of movies, theater and live music. Most appealing, however, is the town’s beautiful setting, with colorfully painted stone cottages clustered around a natural harbour that is fringed by cliffs.

Where to go

Around Town

Staying in Portree positions you well for making trips to the Isle of Skye’s most famous attractions, such as the Quaraing, Old Man of Storr and Kilt Rock. Within walking distance of Portree’s town center, and well-located for embarking on nearby walking routes, such as the Scorrybreac Trail, Torvaig Campsite has hard-standing pitches for motorhomes and caravans, as well as plenty of tent pitches, all with views of the striking Cuillin Hills. 

Sligachan

The small settlement of Sligachan lies 10 miles south of Portree and is well-loved for its sweeping views of the Black Cuillin mountains. This is the perfect base for active travelers who wish to tackle some of Scotland’s best climbing—and reward themselves with a few pints at cozy Seumas' Bar, the Sligachan Hotel’s pub, afterward. Set close to a river, beneath the sweep of the mountain range, Sligachan Campsite has hard-standing and grass pitches that can accommodate tents, campervans, caravans and motorhomes.

Edinbane

A 20-minute drive northwest of Portree, the small village of Edinbane makes a handy base for exploring Skye’s three northerly peninsulas: Trotternish, Waternish and Durinish, home to some of Skye’s most dramatic scenery, best trails and attractions including the Old Man of Storr and Dunvegan Castle and Gardens. Set on the shores of Loch Greshornish, Skye Camping and Caravanning Club Site promises excellent views from its hard-standing and grass pitches, which offer plenty of space for campers, caravanners and motorhomes who are club members.

When to go

While summer can bless the Isle of Skye with glorious weather, it also brings overwhelmingly large crowds of tourists. If you can cope with cooler temperatures and the threat of rain, consider visiting in a quieter month, such as April/May or September/October. If you visit in winter, you can be sure of a crowd-free experience but some businesses may be closed.

Know before you go

  • Some campsites in the area are seasonal: check opening dates before traveling.
  • If you choose to wild camp, be sure to adhere to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code. 
  • While you can get around Skye by bus, having your own transport offers far more flexibility.
  • You can easily find food, supplies and more in Portree’s stores.
  • The weather is always unpredictable. Even in summer, you should bring warm, wet weather gear.
