Skye wins Scottish campsite of the year

ff5cd64e-330f-46f8-87be-8ce99ee41cc3
Skye Camping & Caravanning Club Site has been named as the AA's Scottish Campsite of the year for 2012.

Located in Edinbane on the Isle of Skye, the Club Site received an excellent four pennant rating to secure its position. There was further good news for the Camping & Caravanning Club because their Bellingham Club Site in Northumberland was upgraded to five pennants. With Eskdale, Teversal and Troutbeck Club Sites also achieving AA five pennants ratings, it takes the total number of Club Franchise Sites with AA five premier pennants to four.

Of his visit to Skye back in July, AA Inspector Ewan Ross wrote, 'It's a peaceful site and an ideal base to visit many tourist attractions in the area. It would be remiss not to comment on the quality of the amenity block in particular and site facilities in general, all of which reflect the owners' attitude towards achieving excellent standards to meet customer expectations.'

'We strive to provide exceptional customer service and it’s encouraging to receive such a recognised title,' said the Club's Franchisees, Nicky Sellier and David Weller. 'We hope this award will encourage campers to visit our site - it’s located on the shore of Loch Greshornish and offers beautiful views, yet it is still close to many local attractions for all to enjoy.'

Cheddar and Corfe Castle Franchise Sites also achieved AA four star pennant ratings. Bob Hill, the Club Site's Director said of these achievements, 'Our Club Sites continue to excel and we hope this award will encourage campers to visit our Sites in the future.'

AA rated accommodation is assessed under a set of common quality standards agreed by the AA and the UK tourist authorities (VisitEngland, VisitScotland, VisitWales and the Northern Ireland Tourist Board).
