This was one of those 'Wow' experiences! Greeted warmly by Tony who helped us to locate our pitch by driving ahead. True, the slope, for many ( especially towing caravans ) might prove physically challenging and, once up the top of the site, walking could also prove difficult. However, for anyone in a Motorhome or camper van, the site is breathtakingly unbelievable. Flodabay is down below, stretching across the horizon. There is a clean and easily assessable Elsen emptying point. Dustbins nearby. There are no toilets or showers, But, quite frankly, most modern camper vans have facilities on board. The water hose point was also very easily accessed. Let's be honest. If WiFfi, Jacuzzis, Amusements, Bingo Halls etc were a priority. There's always Blackpool a little further south! Tony provided us with the most special meal. A Fresh Sea Food Platter. Literally driven to our summit door step, and, again, a 'wow' experience. This site is Peace personified. It's obviously Adults Only and, with the sheer Highland landscape of wonderful scenery, Tony, Sharon and son Jamie's hospitality, , the only problem we have is. When can we make it back ?

Jean and Michael.

Our second visit to Flodabay Farm and this time we stayed longer and enjoyed it even more. The spectacular view from the site was just as we remembered it, as was the excellent Seafood Buffet prepared by our hosts, Tony and Sharon, and delivered to our pitch. Tony helped us with collecting and returning a hire car which we found very handy for exploring Harris, Lewis and the other islands. The weather was better than we left behind, the Hebridean breeze keeping the midges at bay, and a Golden Eagle gave us a fine display, which made our day.

Excellent site, nice peaceful location no discos or loud music, kids screaming. Good golf course got a nice hole in one I mean I hit tony, s car ouch not good. The area was very nice. As it was my wedding anniversary, and tony did us proud with his excellent fish platter, enough food for two nights. Tony and sharon excellent hosts. We will be back.

My goodness, the views here are spectacular on a sunny day! Site has no amenity block, you are paying for the view, possibly rather expensive at £25 per night, including electrics and water. Owner has gone out of his way to make it an enjoyable experience and has set up some golf holes to enjoy. A walk to the 2 lochs is recommended but you need proper footwear as it's quite boggy.

This has to be the finest location for your motorhome or caravan, with stunning sea views and a real sense of solitude and privacy. There is so much nature on your doorstep with otters, sea lions and birds nearby for you to enjoy. Tony is the perfect host. His seafood platter, with oatcakes and homemade bread was just prefect as we watched the sunset. We've already asked for the recipe for his venison burgers too. Most of all, the setting really does give you a 'feel' for what life on Harris is really like. Each day the same views changed dramatically with the ever changing light and weather bringing new colours and moods to experience. We will certainly be returning!

If you want bright lights, music and entertainment this is not the site for you. If you want peace and tranquillity, stunning views, amazing walks, your own loch to fish in, to watch seals and otters in the bay, eagles soaring over the hills and the friendliest welcome you are likely to get, then this is the place.

Of all the sites we have stayed on this is unique. Met at the gate by Tony, we did wonder for a while where we were going but once you get to the top it is a stunning view. We got there in rain and the wind was blowing but it just added to the fun, never slept better, with the rain pattering on the roof.

Next morning bright and sunny and to quote ‘My Lord what a morning?’ The walks to the Loch are all marked but we did go a bit ‘off piste’ one day across the moors, which was an adventure.

The golf range is very special, and you don’t have to get the balls back.

Some of the beaches within 30 minutes’ drive are stunning, our dogs loved it.

We were there on October, the Northern Lights were amazing, and the midges had all gone.

Tony is a very genial host, and a font of knowledge for all things local, and contacts you before arriving with explicit details of how to get there. Being a tad allergic to fish we didn’t try his platter, but his oat-cakes, goose-burger and venison burgers are excellent.

If you are a shopper, again not the holiday for you, Leverburgh is the nearest place for provisions with a very well run local co-operative, with a small C!

You do need you own toilet and shower, but power and water are on the site.

We plan one-day to return and maybe for longer than the four days we were there.
