We look forward to opening up our campsite on the 15th of July, we will begin taking bookings on the 9th of July.  We hope to provide a safe and relaxing holiday for everyone who is able to come stay with us, taking in to consideration our customers, local community, and staff.  To do this we have made a number of new guidelines to follow outlined below:


Please fill out the booking form as thoroughly as you can, now more than ever, having your details is extremely important in order to track and trace any cases.


Do not book if you do not have a chemical toilet facility.


Our toilet and shower facilities will not be open for at least the first two weeks following opening. If you book without chemical toilet facilities available to you, you will not be allowed on site and we will ask you to leave. If you have booked to stay with us already, we have sent you an email regarding the toilets and your options if you do not have toilet facilities, we require a response from you before you arrive, this includes the wigwams.


We are not taking any bookings at this time for customers who would like to book after the 29th July who don’t have chemical toilet facility. We will update as soon as we know when it will be possible to open the toilet and shower facility.


We will now require people who are booking to pay the full amount before they arrive to reduce face to face contact on arrival.  We also require that you print your booking receipt, and on arrival have it easily visible on the front windscreen of your car or motorhome.  If you are unable to print your booking at home please get in touch with us via email or phone before your arrival.

We will not be taking bookings on arrival you will have to book before you come. Do not arrive without a booking.


Instead of being greeted in reception on arrival, you will drive on site and choose your own pitch, with the minimum of 7 metres between you and your nearest neighbour. If you need to come into the reception, we only ask that you wear a mask, use the provided hand sanitiser before entering, and that there should only be one person in the reception at a time.

Our laundry facilities will be open to use, however only one person will be allowed in at any given time and you will be required to use hand sanitiser before you enter.


The shop will be open for you to use with similar rules as the reception but we are allowing 3 people into the shop at a time. We are also trialling a delivery/collection service with the shop so you can phone us to order your shopping and come to collect or have it delivered to your door, this will have a £10 minimum.


The Barn Café will be open for takeaways and any further changes to the café will be according to government guidelines.


Our local community is particularly vulnerable and we ask that you continue to maintain proper social distancing and hygiene practices while exploring the village. We look forward to welcoming you to our campsite and thank you for your patience and cooperation with us during these difficult times.


We will update the guidance when required.

Welcome to Sands Caravan and Camping Park


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, our large spacious site has something for everyone.

For something a bit different why not try our 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 we have 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 and the world renowned Inverewe Gardens to the north.

We recommend booking for evening meals on 01445 712688
