So I'm picking up a campervan in Glasgow this Saturday for a week's holiday in the Highlands. I really want to climb Suilven, does anybody know any campsites in the Ullapool/Assynt/Lochinver area that operate this time of year? So far the only campsite I've found open is at Glen Nevis, which isn't too far from where I pick up the van but nowhere near Assynt!

If you have a campervan you could stop pretty much wherever you fancy :) . But if you're after a pitch, this one opposite the pub at Reiff appears to be open:

...as is one of the best in the area at Achmelvich (just about anyway - looks like it shuts the following weekend):

Hi
Achmelvich (Shore) open until 22nd Oct, according to website.
Applecross till 31st according to Tariffs on website.
Site at Torridon might well be, thought it was all year.
With a van, your options are plentiful if you don't need hook up. Little site at Taagan outside Kinlochewe, towards loch Maree for instance. Small, just a basic loo. Only a stop over place tbh, rather than one for an extended stay.

Wonderful part of the world, enjoy.

Thanks for the reccomendations. I spent two nights at Achmelvich, loved it. Suilven wasn't bad either! :D
