Skye Basecamp is a new hostel with small-dorm beds and private en suite rooms. Facilities are perfect for lovers of the great outdoors with staff and guests creating a fantastic atmosphere. Hot showers, comfy beds and a good drying room are the basics but you'll find a whole lot of other reasons to enjoy your stay at Basecamp. Broadford is on the main A87 trunk road only 10 minutes' drive from the Skye Bridge. Basecamp is in the centre of town with shops, 24-hour fuel, restaurants and pubs all just a short stroll away. This is very much a rural setting however and Basecamp has an uninterrupted view out across Broadford Bay to the mainland mountains. A 2 minute walk leads to the beach where otters and other wildlife are commonly seen. This accommodation is featured on our map of West coast of Scotland, Skye and the Hebrides and here is its own website.

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
