Small 3 berth caravan next to my house, located on the main road opposite Kirkton Bay , 5 miles from the Skye Bridge. Woodland, mountains, wonderful wildlife. Ideal pitstop for backpackers! Not suitable for children. Self catering, bring sleeping bags.
The caravan is located in the yard just behind my house. It has hot and cold running water, gas and electric. Bedding is not provided so please bring a sleeping bag. The space can accommodate 3 but you need to be good friends as it is very small. At one end there is a table and chairs that convert into bunk beds, and at the other there are 2 sofas that can be used as either single beds or be made into a double.
This is a self catering listing so please remember food. There is a fridge, oven, grill, 3 hobs, toaster and small slow cooker, as well as pots and pans etc. The bathroom is typical of a towing caravan, ie, tiny. There is no mobile signal here so please ask if you need to use the phone. There is WIFI available although it can be patchy at times. There are chickens, cats and dogs here, all very friendly.
the garden is large and jungle like. The trampoline, swings, ropes and hammocks are there for my children. Please be careful if walking around.
Interaction with guests
Although I am here most of the time I work from home. I have students most afternoons between 3 and 6. During these times I will be unavailable.
Other things to note
The bathroom is tiny, it is a cassette type toilet and there is a tap that can be used as a spray. There is not much water pressure. There are good shower and laundry facilities in Kyle (5 miles).
This listing is not suitable for children.
I don't mind people smoking outside but it is strictly prohibited inside the caravan.
There are 2 bins outside, one for plastic, paper and tins (blue bin) and one for all other rubbish (green bin).
The toilet is a cassette type which I have to empty in the house so please do not put anything other than human waste and tissue paper into it.
You must bring sleeping bags and towels as these are not provided.
The local shop closes at 7pm except on Sunday when it shuts at 6pm. There is a supermarket in Kyle (5miles) which is open until 11pm.
We have very little outdoor lighting and there is no street lighting at all, so please bring a torch.
It can be very wet here at times so please don't wear your best shoes on arrival!! Also, the yard not only contains the caravan, but a large trampoline, a container garden that the children are working on as part of their education, a pond, a wood store and a potting station, therefore, please be careful when walking around.
Water to the caravan is provided by a tank filled from a hose. If the water runs out you must switch all taps off to prevent the pump from burning out, let me know and I will refill immediately or you can do it yourself as the hose is located in an obvious position. This water is filtered, however, for your convenience I will also provide tap water from the house in large bottles.
During the summer, the highlands are renowned for the dreaded midge, therefore I would advise that you bring repellent spray, keep windows and doors closed (or at least keep the net blinds down). Midge hoods and sprays are available at the local shop.
Please remember that this is a small towing caravan and so very basic.
Please leave it clean and tidy and wash any pots that you use.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
