Adjacent to beach with views to the Isle of Skye Family and pet friendly Perfect spot for exploring the Torridons and Wester Ross

With its beautiful beachside location and views across to the Isle of Skye and Outer Hebrides, this spacious family friendly site has something for everyone.

Situated on the beautiful west coast of the Highlands of Scotland with unsurpassed views of the Isle of Skye and Outer Hebrides. The ideal location for the holiday of your choice. Bring your own caravan, motor-caravan or tent and set up where ever you wish in the designated areas, whether you choose a sheltered spot amongst the sand dunes or a raised pitch with unrivalled views, this large spacious site has something for everyone.

For something a bit different why not try the Wigwam cabins, a fun alternative and unique holiday experience, camping outdoors with all the comfort of your own heated, wooden Wigwam. Prefer some luxury, then there are five Thistle graded holiday caravan homes. All have a spacious living area with attractive soft furnishings where the whole family can relax.

Sands is an ideal base to explore the best of Wester Ross, with the famous Torridon mountains to the south plus many other walks in the area, the world renowned Inverewe Gardens to the north, and wildlife cruises as well as the newly-built museum based in Gairloch itself.
