Skye Forest Garden Wigwams in Armadale, Sleat is a campsite set in enchanted woodland and a perfect family location, being less than a minutes’ walk to 2 secluded and sandy shallow bays, which offer stunning coastal views of the Isle of Skye.
Based a working permaculture site, our approach is organic and all year round we work this 16 acre woodland, growing vegetables, herbs and providing a haven for wildlife. Our 10 camping pitches are in a care free area, we simply give you a wheelbarrow to get your gear to your pitch and off you go! We are certified by the Soil Association, so all the food grown here is free from artificial chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
If braving the elements isn’t your thing, then are our cozy Wigwam, Forester's Bothy and Seagull Sanctuary provide a more sheltered and comfortable accommodation option with facilities such as kettle and toaster, outdoor seating area and heating & electricity.
Our onsite facilities include:
Campfire pits around the site.
Iron and ironing board.
Kids play boat and hammock.
Small campfires are allowed for cooking or singing around but we that visitors keep noise to a minimum after dark as we are a family friendly site. Our forest garden is also home to a popular woodland walking route. The path takes you through our herb and vegetable gardens, ending at a headland with breath taking views.
We have a children’s play area with nets and swings and you’re also welcome to feed our rescue hens and ducks or go otter and seal spotting in our wildlife hide.
We are just a 2 minute walk from the ferry over the sea to Skye from Mallaig. Close by is the Clan Donald Gardens and Museum, with archery and clay pigeon shooting, also we are very lucky to have a fantastic arts promoter in the area so there are regular music and theatre nights and Ceilidh dances. Or you can take the Harry Potter Express from Fort William across the Glenn Finnan Viaduct.
We are back to basics, back to nature site, offering simple rural accommodation and a complete ‘digital detox’.
