There’s a great campsite in Cleadale with amazing views out to the Isle of Rum, but if you’d like to wild camp the best places to do so are round Galmisdale Bay or the Singing Sands.  However, be aware that cows and sheep are graze freely.

Please be mindful of the Scottish Outdoor Access Code guidelines on wild camping.

Access rights extend to wild camping. This type of camping is lightweight, done in small numbers and only for two or three nights in any one place. You can camp in this way wherever access rights apply, but help to avoid causing problems for local people and land managers by not camping in enclosed fields of crops or farm animals and by keeping well away from buildings, roads or historic structures. Take extra care to avoid disturbing deer stalking or grouse shooting. If you wish to camp close to a house or building, seek the owner’s permission. Leave no trace by:

  • taking away all your litter
  • removing all traces of your tent pitch and of any open fire (follow the guidance for lighting fires)
  • not causing any pollution.

Wild camping is free but no amenities are provided.  There are showers and toilets in Taigh Nighe next door to An Laimhrig at the pier.
