Why stay here ...

Our new CL is in a picture perfect location on the west coast of Scotland.

Set on a small working croft, yards from a beautiful sandy beach and close to the village of Arisaig. The site itself is located at the end of our croft in a large field adjacent to the beach. All five pitches are hard standing flat with 16amp hook-up with plenty of space for awnings etc.   

Arisaig is an excellent base for exploring the west coast. In our immediate area we have some of the most spectacular scenery in the world. White sandy beaches with unforgettable sunsets over The Small Isles, and Skye.

To the North East is the remote wilderness of Knoydart which can be reached by ferry from Mallaig seven miles away, or can also be accessed by car and foot from Loch Morar. Experience the famous West Highland Line steam train, which runs from Fort William to Mallaig .

Take a cruise to The Small Isles on-board the Shearwater from Arisaig to Rum, Eigg, Muck and Canna. There are so many things to see and do - Golf, Sailing, Fishing, Sea Kayaking, visit Film Locations, catch our Highland Games.

Visit the island of Skye and experience some wonderful Castles, enjoy locally sourced produce and sea food. Try a single malt on a visit to a distillery. Check out events in the area: local shows, Ceilidhs, visiting Musicians, festivals and open days, go Whale and Dolphin watching. The list is endless. We haven’t mentioned the golden or sea eagles, red deer and otters.

Bad attitude from owner

Small Isles CL Caravan Site Arisaig
Member of the caravan club but had booked on to Invercaimbe Caravan and Camping about a week in advance. Arrived late in the evening as explained in email due to a table booked at Mallaig restaurant after ferry crossing. Due to a wrong turn (following sat nav directions) and following directions given via earlier email received by owner we pulled up in our pitch allocated, by this time pitch black too. An hour or so later turns out we were on the wrong site. Yes, our fault due to our sat nav but attitude of the owner was horrendous. Managed to calm the situation down but he was a very angry man, stating it had cost him money and he had to leave his house twice in the rain tonight because of us! We apologised numerous times and even said we would reimburse the electric costs which he wanted £5 but quickly snatched £10 from my husbands hand. Just very upsetting when someone comes banging on the side of your vehicle with a really bad attitude. It doesn’t cost anything to be civil to each other especially after this last year. We were made to feel like we were criminals. Simple and innocent mistake led to a horrible experience and wouldn’t set foot on his site again. I hope he’s happy with himself for how he treated us. Not a nice ending to what was a lovely and much needed break for two health care workers. Very sad to leave such a bad review.

Seriously over rated for those who want to get away from people.

Small Isles CL Caravan Site Arisaig
We arrived and having notified them we had a twin axle caravan found we had been allocated the furthest away and smallest pitch on the site. Without motor movers it would have been impossible to site the van. The pitch is called ‘Isle of Sky View’ but unless the surrounding static caravans or hundreds of other caravans from adjacent sites are called ‘Isle of Sky’ the actual Isle of Sky could only just be made out between the hundreds of surrounding white plastic. There were 7 other units on the site, (8 including ours). I’m afraid this is a perfect example of how humans completely spoil what is a beautiful area. To enjoy the stunning scenery and surrounding ruggedness you have to drive well away from this site I’m afraid. Because of all the adjacent other sites, (carefully not shown in the pictures on here), if you like commercial sites set amongst thousands of other caravans and motorhomes and are happy to get pot luck with a pitch at the end and by the beach, this site is for you but if, like us, you use CLs to escape the crowds, be remote and on your own and enjoy the natural environment - give this site a VERY wide berth.

Perfect location and layout, a simple set-up expertly run .

Small Isles CL Caravan Site Arisaig
We love the West coast and especially around Arisaig where we have been coming for years. After all this time we have finally discovered Barbara and Billie's wee gem of a CL and will be going back as soon as we can. We also love the element of self-sufficiency a CL offers but having an electric hook-up was a real bonus especially for a longer stay. Thanks again!

Beautiful CL

Small Isles CL Caravan Site Arisaig
This is one of the best CLS we have stayed on. Booked 7 nights end of June weather was fantastic every day. Immaculate site with big hard standing pitches. Owners very nice. Gate on site straight on to beach. Sunsets were spectacular. No midges. Brilliant

A lovely place to stay and relax

Small Isles CL Caravan Site Arisaig
We found the small isles site very peaceful and the views were great the beach was a good place to let our dog of for some fun. When the sun was shining the views were stunning Skye and the small Isles were a great backdrop & the Jacobite Steam train was clearly visible 4 times a day.
