Whitewave Wigwams

Glamping with style at Whitewave




Wigwams are the original and are still, by far, the best glamping option.  We introduced our first wigwam cabin in 2006 and have now got 5 carefully situated around the site with each having its own unique character. They are in a fantastic location for exploring the island and all it offers and a fab size for a couple, grand for a family of 4 or a friendly squeeze for 3-4 adults.
Fantastic views of the western isles or Trotternish and stunning sunsets from your door!

Wee Brave Wigwam

The ‘Wee Brave’ is our smallest wigwam. It really is a wooden tent, but still cosy and warm, just a little small. It is regularly used by campers who have been washed out of their tents or can’t face another night in a gale, but it has been used by couples and even small families wanting an affordable break, or an extra space along with one of the big wigwams. It has shared facilities (toilet, showers and kitchenette) in the outdoor centre base. It has heating and lighting and an alpine style sleeping platform.

Standard Wigwam

This wigwam uses the shower, toilet and small kitchen facilities in the activity base and has alpine style sleeping platforms with mattresses which are ideal for couple or small families.  There is electric heating and lighting.

En-suite Wigwams

Our three en-suite wigwams have a toilet, shower and small kitchen included making it ideal for those wanting that extra comfort!

Our two Minch View wigwams have stunning views across the Minch – no need to visit Neist Point to enjoy the sunset – sit back and chill on your doorstep, while our Garden wigwam has a secluded small and sheltered garden.

WHItewave wigwam Amenities

Located within the grounds of the Whitewave activity centre, the wigwams have been carefully situated to ensure privacy and space for all guests. They enjoy vast stunning views across the Minch to the Outer Hebrides, and you can have the most incredible sunsets from your doorstep. Perfect for exploring Skye, with the Quiriang, the Storr and Rubha Hunish nearby. One of Skye’s few sandy beaches is a short drive away at Staffin and cycling the ‘loop’ around the north end is a great day out. Shop, cafe, fuel and pubs are 4 miles away in the harbour village of Uig. Sleeping packs are available for hire.


Review from customer in August 2020

“We really loved our stay here. Lovely big shepherds hut/wigwam with modern clean shower room. A hob for cooking on and a small fridge and microwave. The best bit for us was how private, quiet and cosy it was and the little garden space was ideal for the dog to wander on his stake without disturbing anyone. Views are amazing from the front door and garden where we watched the sunset. Welcoming, spotless and would definitely recommend!”
