Heaven, I'm in heaven...
Of all the places we have stayed in Scotland over the last 3 years, this is the one we like best. We've stayed here twice now. Fabulous views over the sea to the Applecross peninsula. Yes, its just a fleld with a tap and an honesty box (which you should use, please). But there is a loo block at he bottom of the hill with hot water, and a hotel bar along the road with good food and Isle of Skye real ales and a great band when we stayed one Saturday night. The fantastic Kishorn Seafoof Bar is between here and Lochcarron. If you can do without your creature comforts (hookups and hot showers) for one or two nights then this is the place to be!!

This is excatly what it says, a camping area. Not a camp-site with 4 star facitlities. It is a free camping area (with a honesty box, just to show your appreciation of the area) to pitch your tent, park your camper..etc. It is a beautiful place to stay. There is a cold watertap located just outside the site, this is also FREE to use. There are no activities for children at the site, but in all honesty it is the responsibility of the parents to keep the kids entertained. There are plenty of hills to climb around sheidaig to keep the young ones out off mischief. I have given 5 stars for everything on this camp area as it doesn't advertise to be any other than a beautiful FREE place to pitch up for a couple of nights. Oh and a resident dog (Dougal) that takes folk for a walk!

I have stayed at Shieldaig 2 years running for 2-3 nights. Very basic facilities (Toilet and Washbasin) at the bottom of a grass bank, but excellent views and peaecful. I think it is a fantastic place. Only improvments would be somewhere to empty the Chemical Loo

I spent one night here this year. Yes, only a cold water tap as well as bins and a wooden picnic table just outside the field....and public toilets down the road. But beautiful views. The turf had been damaged in some places by big camper vans. When I put my "donation" into the "Honesty Box", it sounded pretty empty to me and I saw no-one else donate (and there were about 6 tents, a caravan and 3 camper vans!!!) Profiters.........................

No stars for anything except location. This a piece of common grazing the crofters allow access - roughly easter - end Sept, with the sheep still grazing on it. No electricity, no showers, no chemical loo disposal, no management just a donation box. Public loo's with cold water at the bottom of a steep, slippery hill. An uncomfortable mix of camper vans jostling for the best view & tents trying to shelter from the wind as it is an exposed site

We stayed here for 4 nights in August with our 3 young children. Not a camp-site to visit if looking for luxury's. Basic to the point of roughing it. No tourist information on site. Toilet with hot and cold water a short walk from camp-site (kept very clean) A cold water tap and bins at entrance to the camp-site. Location 1st class, This can not be beating Plenty of room for the kids to run about. Many great fishing spots. payment by donation box at entrance. I was upset to see many campers by-passing it. Great holiday

Fabulous location; minor problem if staying for more than a few days of nowhere to empty chemical toilet; other than that, all I expected.

Stunning Shieldaig
A basic but beautiful location, where one can enjoy peace and tranquility with a feeling of remoteness despite being on the edge of the small village of Shieldaig. Those staying can use the toilet and handbasin facilities a short stroll away; there are no shower facilities or electricity available, a small price to pay for such a magical environment. Payment is by donation. This is a perfect location for the mountains of Torrison which is only a few miles away or for anyone interested in fishing. I have stayed twice now and am looking forward to a time when I can head North for another stay.
