Located on the rugged west coast of the Isle of Skye at the foot of the Cuillin mountains and Loch Brittle beach, Glenbrittle Campsite & Cafe is the perfect antidote to the pressures of modern living. Founded in 1961, our award winning campsite was voted No.1 UK Campsite by The Daily Telegraph and won Gold Campsite of the Year 2019 in The Great Outdoors Magazine Awards. 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 award-winning facilities nearby.
