Located on the rugged west coast of the Isle of Skye at the foot of the iconic Cuillin mountains and Loch Brittle beach, Glenbrittle Campsite & Cafe is the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern life. Founded in 1961, our award-winning campsite was voted No.1 UK Campsite by The Daily Telegraph, won Gold Campsite of the Year 2019 in The Great Outdoors Magazine Awards and was voted ‘No.1 of the 10 Best Cool Coastal Campsites’ in the September 2020 issue of Coast Magazine. The site is an ideal base camp for some of the finest rock climbing and hill walking in Britain and is popular with devotees of the natural site because it offers a wild camping experience with the added advantage of our premier site facilities nearby.
The site features 120 pitches in natural pockets spread liberally across the field and down towards the beautiful Loch Brittle beach. Our Cuillin Coffee Co. cafe has stunning views of the Cuillin and Loch Brittle along with a refurbished shower block, laundry room, pot wash and WC facilities nearby connected by convenient vehicle access tracks and parking across the site. We offer 36 electric hook-ups, a campsite shop and cafe offering everything from freshly baked bread, croissants, cakes, soup, snacks, a mean hot chocolate and a superb speciality coffee to gifts, camping and climbing equipment. Our dedicated team of campsite wardens and baristas take great pride in giving our happy campers a warm Highland Welcome and excellent customer service. They are based on site 24/7 so there is always help on hand.
