This site has the distinction of being the only one on Islay with modern facilities and EHUs. It comprises a large grass camping field that can also be used by those not wanting EHUs.

There are about 10 of these, quite close together and all on fairly level hardstandings and all directly overlooking Loch Indaal, with the Paps of Jura on the horizon. The views are great and there is a path from the site to the shore and a small beach which is good for dog walking if the sheep are not too close.

James, the warden is very welcoming and helpful. He also gave us a tour of the excellent and warm toilet/shower facilities that were spotlessly clean. The cafe on site is convenient for snacks and light meals but we preferred the Port Charlotte Hotel (booking needed)for a taste of Scotland a few minutes drive away in the charming village.

Overall we have no hesitation in recommending Port Mor, despite the rather cramped EHU pitches and the dust flying from the on site track. At £19 with EHU it offers good value.

What a fantastic site and great facilities – possibly the best site we’ve been to in Scotland. The showers, toilets and wash-up facilities are well maintained and clean. The ground was level and well drained.

Two minor quibbles – the path from the wash-up room to the gravel track below should be surfaced properly. A floor drain should be installed in the shower rooms to allow surface water drain away (someone didn’t know how to use a shower curtain). A fridge would also be a welcome addition.

The outdoor children's playground is good fun and the building provides great shelter in the rain. The cafe is also quite good value.

What can I say that hasn't been said about this fantastic campsite, one of the best!

Biker friendly site, all the staff are very helpful and friendly, try the full Scottish breakfast to set you up for the day, you won't be disappointed, and the views from the cafe are stunning.

Pitches are level and well drained and the site wasn't too busy when I visited. Clean facilities and free showers, obviously well looked after.

A 10 minute walk takes you into Port Charlotte if you fancy a drink at night.

As said before - a really well run and clean, tidy site.

We paid £19 for 2 adults with hook up, facilities were spotless. The centre closes of an evening but the door to the toilets / showers remains unlocked. Staff very friendly and helpful, nothing was too much trouble.

The only slight thing would be no locks on the showers - main door cant be locked and then the cubicles are just curtained.

The village of Port Charlotte is only a few minutes walk away - very picturesque with 2 pubs, a cafe, a small shop and a visitor centre.

Overall first class facilities and a great base to explore the island.

This is a gem of a site on the wonderful Island of Islay. There are only a few pitches and they all have a sea view. The facilities are great and part of the Port Mor community centre.

The cafe is open pretty much all the time and you can hire laptops for pittance.

Port Carlotte is a great little village with friendly people. We visited the activity/nature centre under the youth hostel a couple of times and the kids loved it. The cafe opposite the museum of Islay life is also highly recommended by us.

We used the campsite as a base to explore Islay and found some great walks encompassing wonderful views and history. There is a bird watching centre within a short drive.

Of course there are the distilleries and many whisky tourists. Our son particularly loved watching the ferries in Port Askaig and this was great because we could do this from the beer garden of the hotel there.

We were very lucky with the weather when we visited except for our last night and the forecast of strong winds prompted an early dismantling of our awning as the site is exposed.

It was the third time we stayed there. This year we stayed on the site for six days. The site is perfectly situated overlooking Loch Indaal and the Paps of Jura. Port Mor is a good point for starting a lot of trips around the island

The site staffs was very friendly and helpful, making us feel very welcome.

The cafe offers lovely food and drinks. The sandy beach is small but easy to reach.

There are the best and cleanest facilities in Scotland. We will return and hope the see the sweet cat Tom again!
