Our advertising is aimed at the outdoor enthusiast but we always welcome anyone coming to appreciate the diverse nature, wilderness and beauty of Skye. 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.
