This Site is the opposite end of the spectrum from Islay's other location at Kintra Farm. It is modern, well organised, has flat pitches and lots of space. Washing and laundry areas are clean and well kept. Staff, John and Anna were super friendly and helpful and a credit to the organisation. Although they have hook-ups, we were unable to get one as a large touring party of German Motorhomes had taken all of them. So, if you feel you need hookup, book ahead. Without hookup, we paid £16 for a Motorhome and 2 adults, excellent value. Even with this group and other vans, caravans and tents on Site, we never felt cramped in or had trouble getting washed/showered.

The Site is ~1 mile out of Port Charlotte which has a shop and two hotels. Bruichladdich Distillery is about 3 miles away and the local bus will take you to Bowmore in ~35 minutes if you don't want to drive/drink after a tour. The Port Charlotte Hotel does good, but not cheap, food and their (free) music sessions were worthwhile too. They have, as you would expect, quite a range of Whiskies.

We went along the coast to Portnahaven - a beautiful village well worth the trip.

We'd certainly come back to this Site on our next visit.

A great site run by the local community. Situated on the outskirts of Port Charlotte which has a shop, bar & restaurant. At the campsite entrance there is a café/snack bar. The campsite facilities are kept clean & are spacious. Showers were superb & the water was always lovely & warm. There are pitches for all type of units right on the edge of the site with amazing views over the loch.

What a super site with fantastic views! What a great way to add value to a sports ground. We received a lovely welcome from Anna and we were able to choose between a pitch at the bottom of the site or one at the top. We chose the pitch at the top because there was more space between the units. A very clean site. The showers and toilets were spotless and spacious with lots of hot water.

What a superbly run campsite which is a credit to the local community who saw a gap in the market and amply filled it!

We spent just two nights here in early September 2014 and the site was full each night. The hardstanding pitches at the bottom of the site are a bit close together but the sea views & the spectacular sunrise soon made up for that small criticism.

There are two water fill point - one at the top of the driveway by the equipment store and another one adjacent to the pitches. The EHU’s are against the fence and easily accessible. The CDP is up by the café/clubhouse so is a bit of a distance away, so maybe a small trolley would be a good investment!

The toilets, showers and washing up areas were kept spotless and are accessible at all times – even when the café etc. Is closed.

We had a fish & chip lunch at the café [to be recommended] and also made use of their free Wi-Fi facility [in the café only].

The staff were all friendly and accessible.

Port Charlotte has two pubs/hotels as well as a SPAR shop and the Museum of Islay Life.

There appears to be only one other campsite on Islay, so you have little choice should you not wish to wild camp. It would be great if other communities on the island could provide a similar campsite – say at Bowmore. Or maybe the RSPB could put aside some land on one of their two reserves?

Well done Port Mor!

This is a lovely site. It's very well kept and has a football pitch, an excellent children's playpark, good facilities and a cafe on site.

It is within easy walking distance of Port Charlotte, and slightly further from Bruichladdich, which has the best distillery tour on the island.

The only slight criticism we have is that the electric hookups were very close together. When we stayed the weather was so good we didn't actually need any electronic gizmos, and wished we hadn't booked a hookup!

Great site with a friendly laid back atmosphere. A community owned site which is looked after with obvious pride by all concerned.

Toilets and showers first rate.

Hard standings with EHU right at the front of the site therefore uninterrupted views over and up and down the loch.

Short walk into Port Charlotte with its shop, hotel, good meals and live music on Wednesday, the Lochindaal Bar and try Yan's Kitchen opposite the museum coffee and free home made scone.

You must visit the Museum of Islay Life a wonderful eclectic collection and again friendly laid back staff (sums up this wonderful island really).

The site doesn't have a card machine so take cash, the shop in the village has a free cash machine if you forget.

Cal Mac now allow motorhomes up to 6m at the car rate.

Excellent site to use as a base to explore this gem of an island - a credit to everyone involved.
