Eco adventure camping

An opportunity for the experienced camper who loves nature and the great outdoors, to camp overnight on this magical island.

  • Booking essential

Eco adventure camping is a low impact and environmentally considerate camping offer, meaning that you'll need to be self-sufficient, self-cater and leave a minimum footprint behind.

Catch a public ferry or sail up to the South Shore and stay on the island by yourself, or with family and friends over selected dates during the year.

Bring your own tents or hire from us. Island admission is included in the camp fee but your ferry tickets will be additional.
