Shulista Croft, Skye
on the northern tip of the Trotternish Peninsula, Isle of
Skye, is a working croft, Shulista. It offers
something remarkable - four deluxe camping pods or wigwams
which provide glamorous camping or 'glamping' plus a warm
welcome from owners, Adam & Sally Williams.
The views from the pod-terraces are stunning and
the self-contained heated units, with car-parking alongside,
have sleeping for four on a double-bed and fold-out sofa bed,
kitchen, dining area, toilet, shower and flat-screen television.
For the first stage of your trip to Skye, go to the Shulista
website and see what's on offer.
