Reviewer: Clare74 3 reviews from this member

What a wonderful find! Owner couldn't have been more helpful, meeting us at the gate and driving us up to our choices of pitch. The views were wonderful, the children enjoyed the gold, and if only we had more time we would have taken advantage of the offer of life jackets to go out on one of the 2 lochs within walkable distance of the site, and belonging to the owner. This site is a must to return to when we go back to Harris.

In addition to the site, the owner offers his homemade, if not home grown, produce. Free range eggs, but better still, the most amazing marmalade, jam and much more. The crab and bread was superb, and I only wish we'd bought more of all we did.

I've marked 6/10 for facilities on the basis they are few HOWEVER teh owner will be installing toilets and showers this year and then it would be 10/10.

Customer service - there should be a 12/10 - the owner couldn't do more for us, he was great.

We were impressed with the location of the site, in an elevated position, overlooking two small bays. We received a very warm welcome, with information about what was available locally. The site has two small lochs and we were told that we were welcome to fish or use canoes whenever we wished. We were given a menu on our arrival, and had the pleasure of a beautiful hot meal, delivered to our van.

We really appreciated the peace and tranquillity of the site. We wanted to be away-from-it-all, as it were, but to have access to shops etc. Within a reasonable distance. For us, this site ticked all the boxes.

Our visit this time was all too brief, but we should very much like to return.

We stayed for 4 nights with our touring caravan. We had a pitch at the front with beautiful views over the bay, and often ate at the picnic bench in front of our caravan.

The owner gave us a loan of a buoyancy jacket for one of our daughters and we had great fun using his 4 person dinghy on loch 2.

We ordered a surf and turf buffet and Flodabay fish and chips from the owner. Delivered to our door in a basket and tasted as good as they looked.

The site is on the east coast and is very peaceful, not too far to drive to the beautiful beach at Seilibost on the west coast which is shallow and ideal for kids. The Hebrides Art Café is also a must to visit.

The steep road to the pitches is fine for motorhomes, but caravans need to be towed by a 4x4. We will definitely return to this site on our next visit to the beautiful island of Harris.

Turned up at this site a day early, we had been on the road about 5 days up to this point but it was no trouble and probably a bit lucky that they had space for us even though there were only 3 pitches. 2 off which looked over the dramatic Floodabay which is a sheltered inlet on the east side of Harris. There was another motorhome parked alongside who were Dutch if I remember right and a caravan further down the hill with only views of the surrounding hills. As I said earlier we arrived a day early we were met by the owners daughter who after a little confusion about the dates showed us to the pitch which was loose stone. The entrance to the site was not for the faint hearted, the girl said just take a run at it you will make it and we did with a little wheel spinning here and there but trust me the views are spectacular, it was blowing about force 4 when we got there and the van was rockin a bit but it was well worth it for the views. After an hour or so the owner turned up an ex chef as he put it, a pleasant guy who gave us loads of info including the weather forecast fortunately the wind wasn't to get any harder.

The owner being a chef cooks dinner for his guests on a pre order basis preferably the order goes in the night before, We were running low on supplies as there is not an abundance off shops in the area so I decided to chance my luck, phoned the owner asked him if he could do me and her indoors who is a vegetarian some grub, no sorry he says don't have anything defrosted, oh well I thought get the cheesy pasta out Shona (staple food of campers ) we will just have to slum it, 5 minutes later my phone rings it was the owner , I could do you some baked pollock with chunky chips and a vegetable bake for your wife and that he would deliver it to our van at 7 oclock well it turned up piping hot and deliciouse and he only charged us a tenner for it.

Great host, Great location. Only down side no toilets or showers does have electric hook ups.

Forgot to mention you can hit some balls on the golf tee into the hills or do some fishing in the small Lochs he will even supply the tackle.

To the owner your a Star thanks

Ian & Sho

PS gave it a low score for child friendliness as you are perched on top off a hill, no sheer drops but you would have to keep your eyes on your kids.

A great little site set in the glorious countryside of the east side of South Harris. The proprietor, could not be more helpful, has gone to a lot of trouble to help visitors make the most of his 40 acres and I can confirm the excellence of his meals, delivered to the door. Together with the peace and quiet and wonderful views I regard it real value for money, even for one person. I spent 4 nights there and will certainly return next time I visit Harris.

If you want complete peace and quiet, a real taste of Harris with fabulous food and service this is the place to go!

Total privacy and tranquillity with the option of amazing home cooked food to eat on site or take home, a must visit if you are in a motor home or camper.

I travelled alone and felt totally safe in my isolated site (as requested), every effort was made to meet my requirements. The service and friendliness is what I have come to expect on this truly magical island.
