Isle of Skye - Walking/Wild Camping Advice

Brand new to the site and grateful to have found it.
My family and I are planning on spending a few nights/days on the Isle of Skye (and around Inverness) this weekend. I prefer wild camping over 'campsite' camping for a number of reasons (cost ranking pretty high on the list). My family are all fairly stalwart and used to roughing it. We enjoy walks ranging in 5-10 km. This site obviously has loads of walking options outlined and I'm happy to do my own research. It would be great to hear a few favourites from some of the veterans.
I am finding it a little more difficult to find recommendations on wild camping - especially wild camping in conjunction with walking.
Suggestions would be welcomed and appreciated. After the trip, I hope to report back my findings

Or, you could do the walk from Sligachan through the glen to the Elgol road (about 10 miles?) - camp along that?

Will agree with Kevsbald, a great spot to camp on that route is at Camasunary Bothy (or stop in the Bothy, it has several rooms) Again you will find details of it on day 2 of my report. You can also walk to it via the path from Kilmarie.

"Car camping" is not wild camping in the sense intended by the access legislation. Wild camping means away from the road and away from the vicinity of inhabited buildings, which means putting on a pack and walking.
