Sands Caravan and Camping

Situated on the beautiful west coast of Scotland, we are just a few miles from the internationally renowned Inverewe Garden. With spectacular views across the Isle of Skye and the Outer Hebrides, Gairloch has a great deal to offer the visitor. We are situated beside our own south-west facing beach, with unspoiled golden sand and sparkling clear water.  An ideal location for those who love outdoor activities but equally for those who prefer relaxing and the beach life.

Holiday Caravans

Our five thistle graded holiday homes are situated on the park with views over the sea to Skye. All our caravans are attractively decorated with spacious lounge, two or three comfortable bedrooms, a well planned kitchen and a bathroom. All rooms are heated, whilst the kitchen has a modern cooker a fridge and a microwave. The bathroom has a shower and plenty of hot water to come home to after a day's exploring in the area.

Come and stay in one of our 10 heated wooden Wigwams, a fun alternative and a unique holiday experience that gives you that great feeling of being at one with nature. Like camping outdoors, but with the comfort of your own heated Wigwam.

Each Wigwam has a cushioned seating area with boards which can be used to make one large sleeping area, free standing table, shelf area and kettle.
