More information

Small campsite within a walled garden. Surrounded by RSPB bird reserve. Water and services available. Close to Breachacha beach and Coll airport.

OPEN FROM 1ST APRIL TO 1ST OCTOBER DUE TO THE NUMBERS OF CORNCRAKES IN THE AREA FREE EAR PLUGS CAN BE PROVIDED

THOSE NOT CAMPING ON SITE PLEASE SEE BOTTOM OF PAGE FOR SERVICES

 

IF YOU EXPECT GLAMPING WE ARE ONLY A CAMPSITE

PLEASE BOOK YOUR FERRY IF BRINGING A VEHICLE AS SPACE ON THE BOATS CAN BE LIMITED.

Small, isolated, well sheltered campsite to the west end of the island, surrounded by the RSPB reserve. This site has facilities and the water is a private supply tested by the local Environmental Department.

The walled garden is listed by Historic Scotland for its historic value, and association with Breachacha New Castle.

We are a working farm and this means we must conform to DEFRA bio-security codes, and so we ask you to register on arrival.

PLEASE TAKE CARE GOING THROUGH THE ARCH INTO THE WALLED GARDEN
SIZE 2.30M WIDE X 2.00M HIGH
IT IS ADVISABLE TO TAKE BIKES AND HIGH BOXES OFF YOUR ROOF RACK BEFORE YOU GO THROUGH

THERE IS A DIFFERENT SPACE FOR MOBILES, IF YOU ARE TOO BIG TO GO THROUGH THE ARCH

SORRY BUT WE DO NOT ALLOW DOGS ON OUR SITE BECAUSE OF THE LIVESTOCK AND WE HAVE THREE FEMALE JACK RUSSELLS WHO ARE VERY TERRITORIAL

 

Tents:

Twenty pitches are available in the walled garden.

When booking your mobile or caravan please be sure to give sizes.
We have room for two units in front of the house. Others can park inside walled garden if you can fit through the arch, but more space can be found, and that is why we recommend that you book.

Large mobiles and caravans: the turning into the driveway from the village side is tight, and so we suggest that you go to the airport entrance to turn around and approach our driveway from the other direction. Somehow it works!

THERE IS A PROBLEM FOR VERY LARGE MOTORHOMES USING THE TRACK, BECAUSE OF OVERHANGING TREES AND SHRUBS AT UIG.

 

Facilities:

WET ROOM – Water – toilet – fire equipment – chemical disposal point – fridge/freezer – microwave – THERE IS NO KETTLE. Seating and tables – Drying lines – BBQ area and Tourist information. There are some electric hitch up points in front of the house for mobiles. We now have electric hitch up points for tents as well.

Five minutes from Breachacha beach. (pronounced brek-a-kur meaning field of many flowers)

 

Directions:

We are five miles from the ferry terminal.

Follow the signs for the airport. Go five miles to Uig, take left turn between two white cottages onto private track leading to the walled garden.

Borrow our maps of the island and check out our library full of natural history and local information.

If no one is in, please pitch your tent and we will catch up with you on our return.

Please keep all gates closed. Please do not feed or touch any of the animals.
