This was my first visit to Islay and we were torn between this site and the Kintra Farm site. The reason we went for Port Mor was because of the more central location (and only 10 min walk to the pub!)

The site is a community centre based business and Becky made us feel very welcome (we hadn't booked but there was ample camping space). I can only reiterate previous comments - the whole site is spotless, toilets, showers, dish washing and laundry facilities are first class. Be aware though that the winds can be fierce at times with little shelter so pitch your tent properly!

This is an ideal site to use as a base to explore the island and it quickly becomes apparent just how friendly the islanders are - people give a little wave as you pass by in the car. Folks take the time to chat to you as you go about your day, it has restored my faith in human nature!

We came here in 2009 and had a wonderful stay

It was just as good as we remembered

James and 'wee Becky' take very good care of the facilities and their pride in the site is very evident

We did not try the cafe again this time but it looks very good

Islay is a wonderful place to visit. The weather was mixed but we found it usually blew over around lunchtime and we could go out for a walk with the dogs

The one day it did not clear as early was the day we enjoyed a tour round Lagavulin with the delightful guide, Marjorie

We had not been to Finlaggan for many years. Display boards were really good and helped us understand what we were seeing

Other highlight was the beautiful strawberries form the Community garden

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.

Great camping! Nice flat ground to put up the tent. The camping is located nearby the sea, so it can be windy.

Very good, warm & free showers, though there was only a curtain and no door. (so you have to undress and dress in a public area.

There's a washing machine, dryer & iron, which can be used 'till late (not the whole night)

There's a good restaurant on site, with a small menu. There's also a restaurant in the hotel nearby. For the children is a nice playground. Next to the camping is a football field.

Very friendly warden.

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.
