Campsite and Event Space

Having purchased the Broadford Community Woodland in October 2011 extensive consultation and research, by Broadford and Strath Community Company, identified a campsite and events space as potential developments. After the consultation period, it was felt that these developments would meet the needs of the community and deliver the greatest community benefit.

The campsite will see an increase in business for local suppliers, increased employment opportunities, an improved infrastructure in the village, new education and training opportunities. We believe there will be economic benefits across Skye.

Research on the potential for the site was done through the local community, local businesses, user surveys, campsite visits, speaking to campsite operators, discussions with campers and web based research.

The campsite will have 75 pitches. A mixture of tents, caravans, and campervans.
