About us

Applecross Campsite has been owned and run by the Goldthorpe family since 1973. We are situated in the Mains of Applecross next to the farm and 5 minutes walk from the Visitor Centre, Pub and Bay area.

We have room for sixty tents, motor homes and touring caravans. Our heated camping huts provide affordable accommodation during the colder times of the year or you may choose a luxury static caravan for maximum comfort. There is a fully functional hot water shower block, a laundry room with a washing machine, tumble dryer and a payphone, electric hook-up points, and a licensed café with Internet access.

It is our aim to provide the best camping in Scotland without over manicured lawns and formal flower beds. We have recently awarded the David Bellamy Gold Award by the BH&HPA for the environmental management of the site. Where there is no camping the amenity space is sensitively managed to encourage wildlife habitats and because there is no grass mowing in these areas native wild flowers are able to flourish.

We plan further investment in the drainage in the second field as well as new state of the art toilet facilities within the existing café, and more camping huts. In 2012 there will be six more electric & water serviced plots available for rent on the second field, these are for tents/small motor-home use as they won’t have a hard standing.
