Port a Bhaigh is a scenic, family-run campsite overlooking the Summer Isles from Scotland’s northwest coast.
About Port A Bhaigh
Port a Bhaigh means ‘Port of the bay’ in Scottish Gaelic, a language still prominently spoken around the Western Isles. The campsite is named as such because of a small port on the shoreline, ideal for launching small fishing boats or kayaks onto Loch an Alltain Duibh and the Minch (the Atlantic sea channel between mainland Scotland and the Outer Hebrides). This port, alongside the stunning landscapes of the nearby Summer Isles, contributes to Port a Bhaigh campsite’s spectacular coastal scenery.
Port a Bhaigh campsite can be found in Altandhu, a hamlet approximately 5 miles northwest of Achiltibuie on the Coigach Peninsula. The grounds upon which the campsite sits were formerly the owners’ family croft, passed down through generations for the cultivation of livestock and vegetables. However, in 2009, the family croft was repurposed to form Port a Bhaigh campsite, welcoming happy campers ever since.
