Hi Guys,

Taking the family on our first trip in a motorhome in a few weeks. I'm planning to tour the West Coast and fancy spending a night around Arisaig. The night before we will be in Oban, and after in Ft William, both on proper campsites. For the night in Arisaig (or near by), I was hoping to have no major plan in place, just go with the flow so to speak. With this in mind, any suggestions of where we can stay please?

We have stayed at Invercaimbe Caravan and Campsite, which is just a few miles north of Arisaig, and I have to say that it's my favourite campsite EVER! It's right on the beach with stunning views of the Small Isles and Skye, and the most spectacular sunsets. For some reason, I can't get the website up, but there is a FB page:

It's a very popular site, so may not be room, but there are other sites along that road, including a rather expensive Caravan Club Cl at Traigh. These are the other ones:

Arisaig Campsites and and Caravan Sites Inverness-Shire (http://www.ukcampsite.co.uk/sites/townlisting.asp?town=Arisaig&county=Inverness-Shire)

I'm feeling more than a little jealous, but have a wonderful time up there!

I agree with Kernowprickles. One of the best campsites we have ever stayed on, Invercaimbe. Don't think I could contemplate going back to the area without contacting Joyce Wilkinson and booking a place.

Wild camped there over 60 yeas ago on the spot that is now the CC C/S, absolutely magic with such clear water and sandy beaches. Used to be a single track road with passing places. You cannot fail to enjoy this spot although it has changed a bit in 60 years.

If you dont like staying at official camping sites, it's hit and miss and around Morar there are plenty of signs warning you off not to overnight park. Such a pity it's like this nowadays, i'd avoid the area again.

I know it's a year late... ;) but better late than never.

Here's where I stop up for the night when I'm out and about around Arisaig

You can also stop at the old ferry point just a little further down the road just before the galvanised gate.

That's where I've always stayed when in the area, used to be such a quiet spot..........
