Kilbride Campsite is situated at the southern end of the Hebridean island of South Uist, beside the road that runs along the south shore of the island.  The campsite looks out across a small bay with white shell-sand beach and enjoys magnificent views across the Sound of Barra, with its sparkling turquoise seas and scattering of islands.


The campsite is a very popular with those walking or cycling the Hebridean Way, stopping overnight either at the campsite or at our adjacent hostel, or breaking their day-time journey with rest and refreshments at our adjoining café


The campsite is popular, too, for those touring with cars - whether packed with tents or towing a caravan, and is especially popular with those touring the islands with a campervan or motorhome.
