The New Normal at Skye Basecamp

August 13th 2020

We have suspended online booking for now so we can deal with all your requirements personally. We have multiple rooms available, each to a single household. We are taking bookings for a minimum of 3 nights stay with prices to make a longer stay attractive. For room availability & booking info please contact us by e-mail on

Private rooms are  available to be booked by more than one household as per government guidelines. Procedures will be implemented to reduce risk for staff & guests including a good system for social distancing within all areas of the hostel. This may include time slots for using the kitchen and shower room with requirements for guests to disinfect and clean behind themselves.

Minimum length of stay – 3 days

There are justifiable concerns about the return of tourism and we need to build trust to make the reopening work. Along with many other hosts on Skye we are encouraging guests to stay for longer. We suggest a minimum of 3 days to lower the chances of transmitting the virus and will be pricing in such a way as to make this more attractive. You will be asked for social distancing details for all members in your party. Any booking that needs to be cancelled because of Covid will be given a full refund.

We also have 2 self-catering cottages available by the week in the picturesque village of Luib, just 7 miles north of Broadford.

Because of the complexities involved all bookings are being dealt with individually. For room availability & booking info please contact us by e-mail on

Hassle free island holiday!

April 20th 2019

Since 1995 the Skye Bridge has made the island accessible to all!

Since 1995 the Skye Bridge has made the island accessible to all, and since 2004 the toll has been scrapped, so now you can travel by road to a serine destination that is “still very much an island at heart”.  The period of the toll bridge introduced the campaign of locals refusing to pay the fee, as several hundred were charged and some 130 convicted. Yet despite this, local life was much improved by the absense of hour long ferry delays, and connections to the modern world.

Ms Spear, a local, “It is still has the characteristic of being a little bit wild. It is still associated with the romance of crossing the sea”-  sourced from
