We spent the last night of our Hebridean holiday in this site - and we'll be back. The setting is stunning, only 3 pitches and breathtaking views from them all. Electric hook-up, fresh water, grey waste and CDP (one of only 2 we found on the entire island!). No toilet/shower block yet - in the planning stages. Tony, the owner, made us very welcome and pointed out the hill lochs to me - a keen trout angler.

Each pitch has its own picnic table and benches and we ate dinner surrounded by the 'lunar landscape', views across the sea to the other islands and birdsong all around.

After dinner I set off with my rod to explore the lochs. Guests at Flodabay have exclusive free access to these lochs. Walking was difficult as the heather is really deep in places but it was worth the effort to spend time tempting the trout. I like to fish dry fly and there were plenty fish rising. I got a few offers but these Hebridean trout were too fast for me. As my friend in Lewis often tells me, 'That's why they call it 'fishing' and not 'catching'!'

We hope to return next year to experience again the tranquil beauty of this place.

With only 3 pitches on 40 acres of moorland here is peace and quiet at the extreme. Beautiful views over the Bays of east Harris from 2 pitches and shelter in the moor on the 3rd.

Water, electric hook-up and Cwd are the facilities, but this site is unique on south Harris in having a chemical waste.

The welcome is supreme, with eggs, home smoked salmon and home made oat cakes amongst the offerings.

Access is from the minor road that is narrow. The track up to the pitches is steep but our motorhome had no problem.

There are 2 lochans on the site for trout fishing.

We had a fantastic stay here, Harris is a beautiful island and the site at Flodabay is in an amazing location. We were blessed with great weather, and had fabulous views from the site across the Minch to Skye. We heard cuckoos calling all day (and just about all night!), and saw the resident golden eagle fly over.

The pitches are up a steep hill, but we made it up with our VW Golf and little caravan.

The eggs, sausages and bacon from the farm were the best ever.

The site has everything you need - drinking water, grey waste disposal and CDP.

The owner lent us his fishing rod so we could fish in the lochs on his land - we didn't manage to land one but a big one got away! He couldn't have done more to make us feel welcome, he and the other owner deserve every success with the site. We hope to return to this lovely spot.

What can you say about this mini site? It's certainly different. The three pitches are perched on top of a rocky outcrop, two face the sea while the other looks inland. Driving up the track is an interesting experience but once you get up there, the views are splendid- down to the sea and across to Skye. We did see seals in the bay below the Site but missed the otters.

If you're happy to walk or bike, this is a marvellous chance to experience the lunar East Coast of Harris. If you want beaches, head for the West. There's plenty to see on this coast but you have to make an effort to look for it. The fortified Church at Rodel is well worth a visit.

We had no trouble with hook-ups, grey or chemical toilet disposal and thoroughly enjoyed the oatcakes.

Business card left on our motorhome in Stornoway for Flodabay Farm Motorhome Park. Decided to go for our last night on the island. Was not what we expected. You drive up a steep track to get to reach the site. Plugged into hook-up from cable under an unturned basin with a rock on top. Fresh water, grey waste and CDP on site. Felt a bit like wild camping but cost £20. 00 a night, if you had a view over the bay on one of the two top pitches I believe it was £25. 00. Two private lochs if you were fishers and a range of meats, fish and eggs for sale as well as evening meals delivered to your door. We didn't try any of them. Business card I found a bit misleading, Motorhome Park consisted of 4 rough hardstanding pitches on the top of the hill, Peaceful haven, it was, only one other vehicle on site, and the view didn't match the view on the card! Everybody to their own but this site was not our cup of tea and would certainly not return here again. The owner was pleasant and chatty.

This site is unique!

3 pitches with electric hook up as previously described. Chemical toilet disposal available but no wc/shower facilities Felt like wild camping with luxury extras!.

We had a pitch overlooking the sea -lots to observe-saw seals but not the elusive otter in the Loch. You feel as if you are on the moon -the landscape is so different.

The owners are working hard to provide a fantastic experience for their visitors. Fresh herbs planted near to the pitches for use of campers. Tony's own sausages and salmon were delicious-the salmon presented ready to cook in foil -what a treat! You can also buy eggs, bacon which are home

Produced. Tony will also do evening meals at the farm b and b if given sufficient notice.

The roads to the site are hilly and windy with rather sheer looking drops at time but well worth the journey.

We also enjoyed lunch at a cafe/gallery near Geocrab- a few mies away.

Would highly recommend -think larger caravans would struggle getting up here-ideal for motorhomes.
