Kinloch campsite, Dunvegan, Isle of Skye [Scotland]

Kinloch camp site Dunvegan Isle of Skye Highlands Scotland

On arrival, the charismatic owner greets us and promptly impresses by nonchalantly stating the fact he knows the teeny weeny Welsh village we come from. We travelled all the way up to the middle of nowhere to find the ONE person who’s heard of our home village……this never happens! We like him instantly ^-^

I think the feeling is somewhat mutual as after we reject the hardstanding he initially offers us (although very nice right by the ocean not quite so suitable for our injured dog who needs to rest his sore joints on soft grass) and so he gets us an extra long cable and with the longest hook up EVER puts us on soft grass overlooking most of the other motorhomes on this side of the camp site. We love him even more now!

The camp site is stunning! And quite rightly deserves to be featured in Cool Camping! It’s extremely windy (which means no midges, yay) but I don’t think anything can dampen our spirits now that Big H seems to be on the mend. Happy campers ^-^

The views are spectacular.

Facilities on site are excellent, by far the best we’ve come across in a while and most definitely the best on this trip and so it easily scores 5/5 [in fact, vanplusfour HQ would go as far as to make this one a *must stay*]. The charismatic owner is not there when it’s time to check out and hand back the extra long cable, which is a shame as we would have loved to talk to him more about his fabulous site.
Still, a good enough reason to come back I suppose ^-^

PS: most of these shots were taken with a broken wide angle lens and aren’t as clear as they should be which is a shame but not a good enough reason to remain unseen in my picture archive ^_^

    • Jeez, thanks! Had a little look around your blog as well and can return the compliment (although…….you look like a far better photographer than I’ll ever be!)
      Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment ^_^

    • It was! The Scots do *dramatic* as only the Scottish can ^_^ We might have to admit defeat here: their beaches are cleaner! Their mountains are higher! Their scenery is even more dramatic than ours! And the feeling of space, peace & tranquillity is second to none. We totally love Scotland ^_^

    • aaaaawwwwwww ^_^ [I’m pretty sure 8 weeks of total rest and walks on flat ground were the real reason but your explanation sounds far nicer so we’re sticking with it. Love & care did it ^_^]
