The Skye’s the limit for heavenly campsite overlooking Loch Dunvegan

20 09 21 The Skyes the limit for heavenly campsite overlooking Loch Dunvegan hero

Picture perfect loch location available for purchase.


A rare opportunity has arisen to purchase a heavenly campsite on the Isle of Skye for offers over £1.5million. 

The Kinloch Campsite, a popular 7.5 acres touring and camping park is being marketed by commercial real estate specialists Colliers. The property is privately owned by a couple who have decided to sell their business, which offers opportunity for expansion, due to retirement. 

Situated in a beautiful location overlooking Loch Dunvegan, and towards the oldest continuously inhabited castle in Scotland Dunvegan Castle, and the island of Gairbh Eilein, the campsite includes 470m of loch frontage and is licensed for 120 units, of which 80 can be tourers or motorhomes. There are 59 hardstanding touring caravan pitches and a further six are currently being added. The remaining rich green grass space is used for camping. 

Almost all the park’s pitches benefits from views out onto the Loch where astonishing sunsets can be seen, and Wi-Fi is available across the park for posting these special moments on social media: #KinlochCampsite #goldenhour #nofiltersneeded.

The village of Dunvegan is a highly demanded tourist location, close to the island’s “capital” of Portree and easily accessible by main roads. The area has also various sensational attractions such as the world-famous Fairy Pools, Neist Point, the Coral Beach, and the Talisker Distillery. In addition, this beautifully located retreat is nearby a myriad of outdoor pursuits like hiking, fishing, cycling, stalking, wildlife watching and boat trips.

Richard Moss, Head of UK Park Agency at Colliers, comments: “The Kinloch Campsite has an impressive and positive business record. The North West of Scotland is a beautiful place to visit, and it attracts a considerable number of visitors every year. The park is experiencing a strong trade and we expect it will remain strong considering the UK staycation boom of the moment. It is also anticipated more international tourists will return to these green lands when travel is widespread again.”

Kinloch Campsite has been a hugely successful business. Income is primarily generated from touring and camping pitch fees. The park has further opportunities for a new owner, including increasing the operation season and the full development of 10 permitted camping pods. Moreover, there is a possibility to secure planning permission for a three-bedroom house.

“This sale is an excellent opportunity for the many people that are now looking to run their own business,” Richard added. “The camping park has all the facilities needed, more planning is possible, its location is remarkable, it attracts thousands of visitors and it’s a very profitable business. The Kinloch Campsite is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and a place full of potential where only the Skye’s the limit.”
