Skye Basecamp Climbers' Bunkhouse, Broadford, Isle of Skye


Skye Basecamp is our climbers’ inspired hostel looking over beautiful Broadford Bay on the Isle of Skye. With 9 guest rooms split between dorms and private en suite rooms we provide the ideal central location,  perfect for folk who have come for the unique playground Skye offers for climbing, paddling, hiking and much more. We advise booking a minimum of 2 nights as anything less does not do give enough time to see Skye!

“Great atmosphere”      “Knowledgeable local staff”     “Perfect space to sit & chill”

We aim to attract a clientele who enjoy adding to the atmosphere at Basecamp by exchanging tales of where they’ve been and what is good to do with fellow guests. Our staff are all active in the outdoors & have a good knowledge of the island to assist guests in getting the best experiences during their stay.

*Superb showers*        *Great drying room*       *Huge well equipped kitchen*

All the shops, bars and restaurants in Broadford village are within easy walking distance and Basecamp has fabulous facilities so everything you need is right here. Don’t believe us just check the reviews, 9.8 on Hostelworld in 2023!

Sorry it’s a bit pesky but …

We restrict our online bookings May-Oct to be sure we are able to accommodate clients of sister company Skye Guides Mountain Guiding. This is the other side to our business & we try to keep the Basecamp rooms available to those customers initially. Other guests are most welcome to enquire by email for May-October and if we have availability we will make a reservation for you. If we left our online booking open we would be filled up by tour companies is the “why?”

Our ethos is aimed at the outdoor enthusiast but we always welcome anyone coming to appreciate the diverse nature, wilderness and beauty of our island. Skye time is special and we encourage guests to immerse themselves rather than “ticking the box”.

Many guests extend their stay when they realise how amazing the experience is and just what a delux place Skye Basecamp is to stay 😉

Our facilities reflect this with a large, well equipped self-catering kitchen, bespoke drying room, power showers &  strong wooden beds.

Skye Basecamp is run by Skye Guides, the island’s biggest mountain guiding company. We offer a range of services similar to mountain guiding bureaux in the Alps. Our office operates from Basecamp and guides are always around for free advice on conditions and routes. It is best to book in advance but outings can be arranged at short notice.

The Black Cuillin are the best mountains in the UK. It is the only truly alpine environment in Britain and has been a mecca for climbers and walkers for over 150 years. There is also superb rock climbing right around the 1000 mile coast-line.
