Silver Sands Camping Site nr Arisaig: Review

Our beach view Arisaig
Our beach view Arisaig

One of our favourites. Highly recommended.

It has a slightly old fashioned air – a real old style campsite. Good clean toilets and showers plus washing up sinks, use of a kettle and microwave. An ice cream van calls some afternoons. The owners, John and Karen, are delightful – friendly and helpful. You are literally steps away from a white beach with crystal blue water. You can walk from here to ‘Ben’s beach’ from local hero. Views to Rhum, Egg and Skye and complete peace and quiet. You can hop from here to Skye via Mallaig which is about 8 miles away. We did that but it was hard to leave Arisaig. We really wanted to stay on.

Traigh golf course across the road is a real treat for golfers. £20 a day or £40 for a 3 day ticket. Worth every penny.

Two things to bear in mind.:

1) The nearest shop is 3 miles away and it’s a small Spar. Bring what you need.

2) Showers cost £1 so bring plenty coins.

Almost perfect. We give it 9/10 because we think that showers should be included in the site fee.
