No mains water exists here but a tasty and pure, sometimes peaty coloured, filtered and sterilised hill supply is piped into the buildings for your enjoyment and tested regularly. It may freeze occasionally in hard winters or be in short supply in hot summers but that's life here.
Electricity too only arrived here in 2002 and is optional for those preferring gas lights and wood fires which are still used predominantly in all of our accommodation. Many crofts on the peninsula still use wind and water to generate power. Mobile signals can be poor...But many of our visitors come here for that very reason...
A public telephone is located beside the campsite, but in a state of disrepair! We have been hassling BT to fix this, so feel free to add your voice...
Dundonnell Petrol station and hotel is 7 miles away, but other essential supplies are in Ullapool, 25 miles away where there is a chemist, supermarket, doctor and many other food-outlets.
During the winter time, the single-track road leading to the campsite can become iced over. Please make sure you check the weather and road conditions before travelling. It is rare, but if for any reason you cannot make it to the site due to conditions in the wintertime, the nearest accommodation will be in Ullapool. Please make sure that your vehicle will cope if conditions do turn difficult, and also please provide a mobile phone number to reach the campsite caretaker for when you are travelling. We'll advise where we can, but it will not always be possible to for us to know exactly what the conditions of the roads are away from the site itself.
