    Très bon parking avec superbes vues sur plage et îles.

  • 5/5

    lovely spot next to beach with stones where you can find dinosaur prunt, very quiet at night, grat view, good signal, great walk loop around (1hr)

  • 5/5

    Plusieurs emplacements avec vue sur la baie. Magnifique! Très calme

  • 3/5

    Platz ist abends sehr busy auch große Wohnmobile kommen und stellen sich quer da es sonst nicht passt.wenn du früh kommst kriegst du einen Platz mit Meeres rauschen

  • 4/5

    Layby parking overlooking coast, along a quiet narrow road that leads to a cul-de-sac private harbour (you can turn at the end but not park). 1 mile walk to the small shop in Staffin village. No services. Great coastal views. Dinosaur prints at mid-low tide, (maybe 2?, but a bit vague). Parking is a bit tight, parked diagonal. Very busy during the day. Stayed 2 nights with 10-12 vans.

  • 5/5

    stayed here last night on the very end. absolutely beautiful. livestock grazing but they didn't bother. it was windy but in all a lovely nights sleep in the car. stunning view when we woke up.

  • 4/5

    Nous y avons passés 2 nuits très au calme. Aucun passage la nuit. Aucune interdiction pour la nuit. Parking officiel pour aller voir les traces des dinosaures à marée basse. Paraît il qu’il y en aurait 17. Nous en avons vu qu’une (peut-être)

  • 5/5

    Klidné tiché a bezpečné místo nad mořem s přístupem na pláž. Prostor pro 8-10 kamperů. Žádné omezení.

  • 5/5

    Un de nos meilleurs spots de notre séjour. une jolie plage juste en dessous, un jolie paysage. venir tôt car vite pris.

  • 5/5

    Vue magnifique, très calme, aucune voiture sur la route la nuit, et beaucoup d’emplacements, nous avons passé une nuit parfait !

  • 4/5

    Great spot to spend the night if you have your own toilet aboard. No facilites. The beach is and views are amazing, it does get very crowded with campers in the evening / night.

  • 5/5

    Super spot, vue magnifique. Une dizaine de places pour des fourgons et campings-car. Accès simple car la route est récente. Ne pas arriver trop tard. On recommande !

  • 5/5

    Spot très sympa et calme. peut se remplir très rapidement. pas de commodités à proximité

  • 5/5

    Parking sympa, à niveau, le dernier d’une série de spots (non répertoriés ici) où il n’y avait plus de place. Heureusement ce parking offre pas mal de places et nous en avons eu une en mai, à 21h. Très calme, juste des vans et camping cars.

  • 4/5

    Wir wurden sehr nett empfangen und hatten einen sehr schönen Platz für unser Wohnmobil. Die sanitären Anlagen sind etwas einfach, aber sehr sauber. Ein Spaziergang zum Meer lohnt sich auf jeden Fall. Sehr empfehlenswert.

  • 5/5

    super endroit face à la mer place pour 4 avant le parking en epi de la plage très calme

  • 5/5

    Einfacher Stellplatz mit einer sehr schönen Aussicht direkt am Meer.

  • 5/5

    Great place to stop for the night and to try to find the dinosaur footprints. Plenty of space in April but busy with beach visitors during day. Not completely level but ok even without ramps. Was warned by locals to avoid the southern end as erosion by sea has made it unsafe. On the favourites for next time.

  • 5/5

    très belle endroit !il y a plus de 5 places comme annoncé, vue sur océan, sol un peu en pente mais la vue en vaut la peine

  • 3/5

    Car park open and easy to get to on any size vehicle. No prohibition signs for staying over night but we just parked for a few hours to explore the beach. No services.

  • 4/5

    A beautiful spot beside the beach in an area of Skye where there are not many parkup options- this means it can get busy with other campers. It is also the car park for the beach so best for a later evening arrival/early morning.

  • 4/5

    no longer allowed to stay overnight at the harbour, £100 fine if you do.

  • 4/5

    This place is no longer available as the harbour has been brought back into service. The area is for use by harbour users only. New signs prohibiting parking have been put up

  • 5/5

    Ruhiger Stellplatz am Ende einer Sackgasse mit toller Aussicht. Für Fahrzeuge über 6 Meter ist nur sehr wenig Platz

  • 5/5

    Stunning place to stay the night. The road is in good condition and there is plenty of place especially when getting here early. Reception surprisingly good

  • 5/5

    Stunning location, plenty of space, no facilities but good service and stunning view. Would highly recommend, quiet single track road right next to the beach. Other campers too so felt safe.

  • 5/5

    Our van is 6.3m and this park up is definitely not suitable for anything bigger! Longer vehicles were parked but side on so taking up lots of room meaning other visitors in cars / vans couldn’t get parked. Single track road leading to a dead end, giving little room for turning round…… very peaceful night listening to the sea!

  • 5/5

    Endroit parfait pour dormir, vue magnifique. il y a pas mal de vent mais c est supportable. aucun service, pas de poubelle. Il y a une dizaine de places

  • 4/5

    Great park up spot, we spotted seals and otters here! Really quiet at night, and soothing waves can be heard. No toilet facilities nearby though.

  • 5/5

    Breathtaking scenery! Wish we could live here… thank you for the recommendation ❤️

  • 5/5

    Great spot for an overnight stop, no facilities but level and right next to the beach.

  • 5/5

    Stayed another cracking night here. Check the wind forecast and double it as it can throw you round quite a bit depending on direction and a few vans chickens out and left during the late evening

  • 5/5

    Sehr schöner Platz, allerdings schnell sehr voll. Man hört das Meer in der Nacht rauschen & hat einen wundervollen Blick auf dieses - alles in allem ein sehr toller Platz

  • 5/5

    Great place but get here early for a place to p4n no facilities but fantastic views out of the wind and lovely beach highly recommend.

  • 5/5

    Ein schöner Platz zum stehen, leider sind doch viele Egoisten unterwegs. Bitte nicht quer parkieren, andere Leute wollen auch eine Nacht hier verbringen.

  • 4/5

    Lässt sich mittlerweile wieder gut anfahren, Platz für ca 8-10 Vans, sehr ruhig, bis auf das Meersrauschen, relativ eben. gut frequentiert.

  • 4/5

    Precioso lugar para pasar la noche, no tienes ninguna comodidad pero las vistas son increíbles. Muy tranquilo el sitio

  • 1/5

    It's the only place to park in the area. Staying there for more than a late arrival and early departure seems very inconsiderate if there's more than 1 or 2 motorhomes.

  • 4/5

    Muy buenas vistas, para llegar carretera muy estrecha, llegamos 8:30 pm y aun había espacio para autocaravanas, delante del mar, mucho ruido del mar pero si no te molesta se duerme bien. No pasan coches por la noche

  • 5/5

    Tot 20u waren er veel auto-toeristen. Nadien was het heel rustig. Prachtig zicht! Vanaf ongeveer 9u opnieuw veel auto-toeristen maar 's nachts en 's avonds was het heerlijk. Plaats voor zeker 10 campers maar als je vroeg komt, staan de auto's er nog. Heel leuk met kinderen die de hele tijd om de stenen visjes hebben gevangen.

  • 4/5

    Bel emplacement très vite occupé. Nous sommes arrivés un peu avant 18h et seule une place était disponible. Après quelques minutes une voiture est partie de sa place et nous avons pu nous installer face à l'océan. Pas trouvé la poubelle donc nous emportons nos déchets. Calme mais pas mal de vent avec une tente de toit. Réseau EE et Vodafone OK

  • 5/5

    nous avons super bien dormi très peu de passage le vent ne passe pas et le bruit des vagues c'est top

  • 5/5

    Nous n'y avons pas dormi mais nous y sommes arrêtés pour le repas de midi avec la chance d'arriver à marée basse (pour voir l'empreinte de dinosaure). Belle vue.

  • 5/5

    Fabulous site for the day and overnight!!!! Amazing views from the car park which fits about ten camper/motorhomes. Arrived by 6pm and managed to get a spot. Still a few day trippers at that time so more spaces became available and by the time we went to sleep, every bay was full! Great view, beautiful beach and very quiet at night. Very busy the next morning as expected.

  • 5/5

    Endroit super sympa au bord de la mer ! Attention mieux vaut arriver relativement tôt si l’on veut avoir une place.

  • 5/5

    Magnifique emplacement face à la mer!! Nuit calme, seul le bruit des vagues. Emplacement très prisé, à 18h déjà une dizaine de véhicules installés....

  • 5/5

    Prachtige locatie. Relatief rustig. Kom overnachten na 18.00 uur, dan is het beter te bereiken.

  • 5/5

    Great spot! Gets busy quickly so best to head there early.

  • 5/5

    spent last night here great stop over all you can here are the waves not much traffic passing during the night

  • 5/5

    parking le long de la route impasse. très calme la nuit bercée par le son des vagues

  • 5/5

    Wir haben hier spontan einen Platz mit wunderbarem Ausblick bekommen und es waren noch weitere Plätze frei. Am Morgen kam jemand vorbei und hat gebeten, dass man sich quer und nicht längs zu Straße stellen möge. Es gibt keine Toiletten in der Nähe, daher nur für autarke Camper.

  • 5/5

    Fantastic spot for spend a lovely night and a great sun set! Road is ok and everybody shall respect the size of the spaces in way allow passaage for the others, speacilly those who use the road to go work - on boat! Best place in Isle of Skye as a Park Spot, for me. No services.

  • 5/5

    Just because you didn’t get a spot doesn’t mean you should rate this place 2 stars, that’s not how P4N works! Beautiful carpark, overlooking the sea and beach. Does get busy so be sure to get here early (before 15:00). Good swimming and great beach for dogs. 4G is okay at around 10-20mbps (Vodafone).

  • 2/5

    really busy we could not park in afternoon or night. We were going to park at jetty car park instead for night with another camper there .But kindly advised by a local the council are really strict. In may half term with campsites full too... several campers took the risk and each were fined £100 each during the night.

  • 4/5

    Gute Aussicht am Strand. Allesdings stark frequentiert.

  • 5/5

    Excellent overnight parking for multiple campers and motorhomes facing the sea. lovely evening walk with little dogs to a small pier area. we have an 8m motorhome and no issues for accessing this spot.

  • 5/5

    Sehr toller Platz, wir haben hier eine ruhige Nacht neben einigen anderen Campern verbracht. Bei Meeresrauschen eingeschlafen und wieder aufgewacht und einen tollen Sonnenuntergang beobachtet!

  • 5/5

    Great spot, amazing views. Get there relatively early as it fills up.

  • 5/5

    Sitio fantástico donde pasar 2 noches. Vienen bastantes campers el fin de semana, pero parece haber sitio para todos. Ideal para ver las huellas de los dinosaurios cuando la marea baja. Hay mucha diferencia entre marea baja y alta.

  • 5/5

    Haben dort eine ruhige Nacht verbracht. Platz nicht ganz eben aber auf Kies. Anfahrt mit größerem Wohnmobil kein Problem.

  • 4/5

    Great little park up. Spent a peaceful night here next to the sea. Room for several campers. There were 4 others parked up when we got here about 8:30pm.

  • 5/5

    Nice place for an overnight stop, with a beautiful sunset. There were 3 other campers here when we arrived and the place was peaceful, right by the beach. Perfect for searching for the dinasour footprints in the morning!

  • 5/5

    War für mich auf dieser Reise der schönste Platz, nichts außer Meer Klippen u Ruhe

  • 5/5

    Perfect quiet spot right on the sea front. Only 1 other van that left early morning. Would definitely return.

  • 5/5

    lovely parkup with amazing views. Phone flicks between 3g and 4g on three

  • 4/5

    No services but park up with a good view, signal flicks between 3G/4G. Okay for a stop off overnight. Can fish off the rocks too.

  • 5/5

    Perfect spot. The roadworks are complete, so it’s an easy drive in. There is level space for 12 cans of varying size. You’re right on the water, and up 5m so no risk of flooding. And there are 24hr public toilets available in Staffin just a few minutes drive away.

  • 5/5

    Flat tarmac, seems brand new, flat and great views. Very quiet through the night and morning. Harbour had a vehicle and boat so couldn’t really work out where to position ourselves down there.

  • 5/5

    This is the best spot on our Scotland trip so far. Great location and right next to the sea. Fisherman from the nearby fishery left by 6pm then very quiet. Only one other van, plenty of space.

  • 5/5

    Got there about 5pm and shared it with 3 other vans. Good turning area by the pier at the end of the road. Beautiful park up. Don’t forget to find the dinosaur prints!

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot to spend the night overlooking the sea - road works are now all completed and there’s space for around 8 vans on the free beachside parking. We swam morning and evening, and found the fossilised dinosaur footprints on the low morning tide. Weather comes in quickly so be prepared to batten down the hatches! No facilities at all, so please take all rubbish with you.

  • 5/5

    Une vue magnifique, tout au bord de l'eau. Des vaches un peu téméraire par moment mais tout s'est bien passé. Je recommande !

  • 5/5

    Brilliant spot. Plenty of spaces and few wind but not too many midges. We've been able to have a nice walk after dinner and enjoy a lovely sunset. We slept very well there so will definitely recommend.

  • 4/5

    Buen spot, buenas vistas y Tranquilo por la noche. Cuidado con el aire, orientar la furgoneta de cara al viento de lo contrario no puedes dormir del movimiento.

  • 5/5

    great view, nice and quiet, decent 4G

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot where you can listen to the waves all night. Great little beach you can access from here easily. Little-to-no road noise, especially overnight. Good cellphone coverage. No toilets or rubbish bins nearby.

  • 4/5

    Une vue magnifique au milieu de la nature. Un parking plat. Très calme la nuit. Assez rapidement plein. Attention l'endroit est très peu abrité du vent. Nous avons du en partir au milieu de la nuit à cause de vents violents. Allez y en ayant vérifié s'il n'y a pas de météo tempétueuse !

  • 5/5

    Buen sitio para dormir y resguardarse del viento, es tranquilo y unas vistas espectacular.

  • 5/5

    beautiful place at the northern point of Skye. falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the sea is really good. parking area is large. along the road are st least 3 good sized locations for i think about 3 motorhomes each. good 4g connection.

  • 5/5

    We stayed here for one night, no issues with Road works I think these have now been completed. A 2 minute walk to see the dinasour prints, my partner went for a swim in the sea and as we sat having a bbq we spotted some seals! Brilliant place to stay, very peaceful and stunning views.

  • 5/5

    nous avons dormi sur le parking du bas près des 2 containers ,servant je pense aux pêcheurs.Petite balade à faire dur la falaise,belle vu sur la mer. pas bien dormi à cause du vent mais je pense ici qu'il faut s'y habituer.

  • 5/5

    Great place to stay overnight, no issues over road works so recommended with perfect views over the sea

  • 5/5

    la route a été refaite, facile d'accès, premier parking large ou plus loin au bout de la route, vue parfaite, au calme..

  • 4/5

    Fantastic spot, space for eight vans comfortably. Seals in the bay and wonderful views. Very peaceful

  • 2/5

    Arrived very late and night (after a late ferry from Harris). Seemed fine but had Gale force winds which led to a fairly sleepless night. Nice spot, just not when it’s windy.

  • 5/5

    Great nights stay in October 2021! Lots of other vans there too. There were some decent sized motor homes too so I think any size could get down. There’s a nice little beach when the tide is out that my dog loved!

  • 5/5

    Perfect nights stay. room for a good number of vans and it's so quiet at night except for the sound of the sea. no facilities. I went for a lovely dip in the water in the morning as well.

  • 5/5

    Great reasonably level spot with fantastic views and access to beach. 4g on EE fine…typing this from there now! Although access road is tight, there is plenty of rooms for large motor homes (ours is 7.5m plus bike rack). Highly recommend if not looking for any services.

  • 5/5

    Amazing spot! fantastic view's, beautiful beach that's amazing for a swim with fossil dinosaur footprints, even saw the northern lights toilet's 5 minutes drive up the road in Staffin at the local shop

  • 4/5

    Lovely stopover. Easily accessible and to find. We got eaten ALIVE by midges! We had all the gear but had to spend 2 hours inside the van.However, gorgeous breathtaking views, lovely little beach to explore and find dinosaur footprints. No services, few cars passing in the morning due to working harbour. We watched sunrise at630 before exploring the little beach and paddleboarding.Leave no trace.

  • 4/5

    Busy through the day with people going to the beach/rocks, nice and quiet at night,had a good nights sleep and nice view for breakfast,would recommend

  • 5/5

    Definitely recommend.

  • 4/5

    Nice little spot. Busy during the day with cars. Anything over 7m is going to struggle here. The harbour is busy with fishermen parked and there is a definite strong smell of fishing harbour down there. This spot is much better.

  • 5/5

    A little more sheltered than the harbour car park at the end of the road, this is a very picturesque overnight stop. Plenty of space and facing east you get the sunrise! Go and find the dinosaur footprints on the beach! There is an hour long walk signposted just before the harbour car park as well. In the shade in the evening but the beach keeps the sun for much longer :-)

  • 5/5

    Great spot, amazing views. No signs saying no overnight parking. Quite a few other vans parked here and further down in main parking area so probably need to arrive early to get a space.

  • 5/5

    Camped by beach. Quite spot. Few tents. Beautiful stream going into river. Just round the corner from slipway.

  • 5/5

    Plage de sable fin et vue magnifique endroit calme

  • 5/5

    We stayed here for two nights in late September 2019, very quiet, lovely views!

  • 5/5

    Beautiful spot, right on the ocean. Few other campers, felt really safe. No wind when we stayed so lots of midges.

  • 3/5

    Accès pas difficile même avec notre camping-car, par contre nous avons eu une nuit remuante à cause du vent et d'une mer assez agitée, et très isolé en novembre. Sinon superbe endroit.

  • 5/5

    Tout a été dit !!! Superbe spot tranquille !!! accès pas plus difficile qu'un autre car c'est une route goudronnée !!! A refaire !!!

  • 5/5

    Endroit superbe, vue incroyable sur la mer. Pas mal de passage de van même à cette période mais lieu très calme donc pas gênant. Couverture réseau aléatoire. Encore une fois, merci de ramasser vos déchets il y en avait encore plein par terre...

  • 5/5

    Parfait, très calme avec une vie magnifique, quelques vans étaient déjà sur place à notre arrivée

    En arrivant suivre Staffin Beach ans slipway, suivre le chemin jusqu'au parking. effectivement technique pour camping-car mais pas de souci pour un van. Belle vue sur la mer, pas un bruit

    Super Sicht! Direkt am Wasser

  • 5/5

    Merci pour le lieu. Très joli coin. Passage un peu technique pour y arriver mais ça passe avec un camping-car de moyenne taille.
