Uig Bay Campsite, Uig, Isle of Skye [Scotland]
We arrive at the camp site around 6pm, just as the battery on my camera runs out [bummer!]. It’s disappointing at first [mainly because all you can see is some unattractive hard standings] but once we manage to secure a nice pitch on the grass we happily put some sausages on the barbie and have it with a [spicy hot] Indian dressing potato salad [weird but nice] while watching our international neighbours [most of them German would you believe ^-^].
Big H is still not great but a lot better than he was in the morning so we decide not to put the bed up but to sleep on our L shaped *sofa* to give him more room to move his sore joints around. At 1:15hrs in the morning we are rudely awoken by some very drunk and very loud American ladies but luckily we’ve not forgotten that once upon a time we used to be party animals too and so after a quick toilet *break* we fall back into bed and return to dreamland ^_^
Uig Bay Campsite, £15 with EHU
It’s a well documented fact that we prefer the rough’n ready ones over clean lines. First impression: hardstandings, no thanks…….however: this one grew on us ^_^ The vistas are dreamy, the air is as sharp as a knife, the site has a nice family *we’re all on an adventure* vibe about it and the wind’s blowing = no midgies, hey presto! The facilities are great and there’s great emphasis on recycling [they even provide buckets for plastic bottle tops, EXTRA buckets!]. WiFi’s optional [if a little expensive] and when it’s time to leave we’re defo in *would happily return* camp ^_^ It’s a 5/5. How can it not be. In Uig. On Skye. In the Highlands!
