Glenfinnan | The world-renowned story of Bonnie Prince Charlie 's fight for the British throne gathered momentum at Glenfinnan where he raised the Jacobite standard and rallied his clansmen for battle.
Mallaig | At the end of the ‘Romantic Road to the Isles’ and the West Highland Railway Line lies Mallaig, just over an hour from Fort William. To go further afield, board one of the ferries either to Skye or to the Small Isles of Muck, Eigg, Rum and Canna.
Morar | As the Atlantic Ocean rolls in past the Small Isles, its azure shallows tumble on to sparkling white beaches which have long lured photographers and film-makers – none more so than the stretches from Traigh Beach to the silver sands of Morar where 'Local Hero' and 'Highlander' were filmed.
Arisaig | This is the area where the renowned west coast sunset can be enjoyed at its best. There can be no more magical sight than the sun as it disappears behind the islands in a riot of pink, red and purple, setting the mountains of Rum and Skye ablaze with colour.
Lochailort | Loch Ailort cuts its way in from the Ardnamurchan peninsula. The loch, with its clean and sheltered waters was where Scottish fish farming was pioneered. Just a mile further north at Polnish the road passes the old white church which was used in the film 'Local Hero'.
The Small Isles | Unlike many groups each island is distinct and different in geography, agronomy, population and ownership. From Muck in the south, through Eigg with its tooth-like Sgurr, and Rum, mountainous and mysterious in the clouds, to Canna in the north, the Islands offer a wonderful variety of scenery, wildlife and lifestyle.
Knoydart | The Knoydart peninsula is only accessible by boat from Mallaig or by a 20 mile hike on foot. A wonderful area for walking and camping, this is truly a miles-from-anywhere, get-away-from-it-all place. The Old Forge has the accolade of being the most remote pub in mainland Britain

Accommodation | Caravan & Camp Sites

Invercaimbe Croft Caravan Site

We are a small family run caravan site with 18 mixed pitches situated close to the village of Arisaig and overlooking the Hebridean Islands of Eigg, Rum and Skye. There is a sandy beach and sheltered sea inlet on two sides providing a safe paddling, swimming and boating environment.

The site is free-draining sandy soil and has level firm standing suitable for motorhomes and caravans alike. There are also six levelled hard standing pitches with a grass area for awnings. Awnings going directly on the grass must have a breathable ground sheet. All pitches have electric hook up and they are 16 amp. We no longer take tents over 4 man size due to the exposed location.

Facilities consist of 4 toilets, 2 showers, a laundry & dishwashing room. There are 16 electric hook up points - these require booking during busy periods. Facilities are basic but are kept clean. Hot water and showers are free. Showers are instant electric.

Television reception is good and Vodafone, Orange and O2 all work well here. We have a wi- fi hotspot provided by Highland WiFi.

There is a small shop on the site at reception selling postcards, cards, calendars as well as Highland beef , eggs , and seasonal veg [all from the croft]. Milk, Cream of Galloway ice cream and home made tablet are also available here.

Pitch prices from £8 for a tent with no vehicle and two occupants to £20 for a caravan and electric, high season.

Location

A West Highland working croft holiday destination where I breed native Luing cattle and Highland Ponies and keep highland bullocks for beef, on a beach front location overlooking the Small Isles with sheltered moorings for small boats.

Invercaimbe is one and a half miles from the nearest Hotel , shops and facilities in the village of Arisaig, an ideal touring base for visiting the Highlands, Skye, Ardnamurachan and the Small Isles.

Locally there are lots of opportunities for walking, cycling as well as fishing. A folder of local walks is available in the laundry room. Kayak hire is available in Arisaig and the safe sheltered inlet is ideal for this.

There is a golf course at Traigh only 2 miles away. We are 8 miles from Mallaig.

We are located just about 1.5 miles north of Arisaig on the old coastal road to Mallaig at the start of the famous white sandy beaches that are more often associated with the 'White Sands of Morar' but start here at Bunacaimbe, which is an old crofting township.

Wildlife

It is possible to fish on the Caimbe Burn (small river) which flows through the croft and there are a wide variety of wildlife, flora and fauna to be seen, including many types of wader at low tide and inshore sea birds when the tide is full. These include Mergansers and Eider ducks, the waders include Redshank ,Golden Plover and Curlew. The croft land also provides a breeding ground for Skylark Lapwing Wheatear and Twite.
Otters breed higher up the Caimbe and have been known to bring their young down to feed in September in full view of the caravan site. Whales and Dolphins are in residence not far offshore in the Sound of Arisaig and locally run boat trips are available to see them and of course to see the seals which can even be seen on rocks on the shore very close to the Caimbe.
