The Cuillin are situated centrally but Skye is a large island and petrol expensive. Ideally customers booked onto courses should be based in a band between Broadford and Portree in order to keep travelling times to a minimum; try to avoid being too far out on a limb! For last minute trips some form of accommodation is rarely difficult to find but choices are limited and can be expensive in the busy summer months. A few suggestions are listed below but Tourist Information centres and internet searches will also give many possibilities.

Our own cottage:
Glas Bheinn Cottage (sleeps 4), Luib, Isle of Skye
Glas Bheinn Cottage is a 19th century stone-built cottage situated in the picturesque village of Luib, a great central location. The cottage looks across Loch Ainort to the Isle of Raasay and has the Red Cuillin at its back door. The cottage has been completely refurbished and finished to a high modern standard. The traditional feel has been retained with a combination of beautiful woodwork and exposed stone.

No forward booking for the traditional Cuillin campsites at Sligachan and Glen Brittle is neccesary. Both have good hot water showers and electric hook-ups for campervan/caravans.
Sligachan has a bar and hotel providing food & drink across the road from the site and is a 9-mile drive from Portree.
Glen Brittle is a beautiful peaceful site beside the best beach on Skye that has a small shop with limited supplies of food and camping equipment.
The closest site to our base is 2 miles down the road at Strollamus. There are also sites in Broadford, Portree, Dunvegan, Staffin & Greshornish.
