Create an itinerary including Clachtoll Beach Campsite
Nestled in a rocky bay and surrounded by moorland, Clachtoll Beach Campsite boasts white sand and turquoise water that seems to belong more to the Mediterranean than the Scottish highlands. Stroll along the fine sand, fish off the craggy rock formations, or take a kayak out on the water. Keep an eye out for the pods of dolphins that regularly swim by or the otters and seals which play by the shoreline. Also watch for more infrequent visitors such as minke whales, basking sharks, and porpoise. At the campsite just behind the beach, you will find a shop and other amenities. After spending time on the beach, consider launching an exhibition to the surrounding hills and coastline with its sweeping views and dramatic cliffs.

  • We stayed at Clachtoll Beach Campsite so had access to the beach. It’s literally stunning! The water is so clear! The little bay you can see was always quiet so we would always swim and paddle board.....  more

  • Lovely beach but completely ruined by the fact you have to practically drive through the campsite which I can only describe as looking like a shanty town. Recently went back just to use the public...

  • Best campsite we stayed at during our Scotland tour. We were gutted to spend only 1 night and wish we’d booked for longer. The facilities are spotless, powerful hot showers, free use of water sports equipment (paddle boards kayaks etc) the beaches are beautiful and if you’re lucky you can see seals and dolphins from the beach. Will definitely return. Also very dog friendly however as with most sites dogs on leads around the tents / communal areas :) fresh sea food can be ordered subject to the catch of the day.
  • The best campsite we’ve ever been to. Run by a lovely family, who put every effort into making sure everyone enjoys their experience. Spotlessly clean and lovely attention to detail. Clachtoll beach is stunning and very easily accessible from the campsite. I’d recommend this to everyone - we will definitely be back! Also, if you’re in the area try Peets for gorgeous, local fresh seafood.
