With the hardstandings limited to a max of 4 well spaced out pitches, peace and quiet is in abundance. You must have your own facilities on board your caravan or motorhome but water and hookup all there, including wdp. Sea and landscapes are superb. 2 lochs for flyfishing and otters swimming makes this site quite unique. Very dog friendly away from the road with possibly in excess of 50 acres to walk. Hospitality and info from Tony makes your stay easy and his seafood platter (ordered in advance) so very tasty and healthy. We will return maybe later this year or early next. We would highly recommend this location.

We spent a wonderful week at this amazing site. The complete opposite of other more crowded, busy, and, often ugly, camp sites. We enjoyed stunning views over the Bonnie Bay and easy access to the beautiful wildness of Harris, on our doorstep. Our hosts were extremely friendly and helpful and are working hard to create something that is the antidote to those regimented campsites. We took advantage of the fish platter on our third night and rated it 10 out of 10. What a treat after a blustery, cold, wet day to have a first class meal served by our host. Best sea food I have tasted. Don't miss this chance to spoil yourselves. We also bought Flodabay eggs, which was another bonus.

The area is a geologist's paradise, and obviously a great draw for nature lovers. There are limited facilities but this was not a problem for us. The environment more than made up for any shortfall.

This is a site for people who want to enjoy peace and quiet and privacy. We were in a motor home and hired a car to explore some of the more inaccessible parts of Harris. Much easier. Tarbert and Leverburgh are within easy access for basic supplies but there are less shops on Harris than on Uist and Lewis, so do stock up.

We saw the excellent reviews of this site and booked our first two nights on the island based upon these reviews and we were not disappointed. The views from our pitch across the sea and over the local hills were superb, no need to watch TV with all the options available for walks and views, whilst the weather was not very kind on our second day (rain and wind) this did not spoil our stay. We would strongly recommend the seafood platter made and delivered by Tony, it was excellent. Tony was an excellent and knowledgeable host and could not do enough to make our stay memorable and we wish him well for the future and hope we can visit again on our next visit to the island.

We have just returned home after a 3 week trip to the Hebredies and the Highlands and the undoubted highlight of our trip was our stay at Flodabay. From the reception from Tony and the spectacular views both front and rear this was truly a memorable experience. Short walks took us to the small pier where we watched the seals and a short walk in the other took us to the beautiful lakes. There are otters but we didn't! Manage to see any.

This is not a site suitable for children and caravan nears will definitely need a 4 x 4 to negotiate the steep track to the pitches. Our motorhome owners had no problems.

While there are no toilet or showering facilities we were quite happy to use our own. Electric hook ups and chemical toilet disposal are provided and wifi is on its way.

Tony even came to see us off and to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We did, !

Anyone looking to stay on Harris should have a look at this site. We stayed here in May in our motorhome.

It is a steep climb up to the pitches, however once there the views are terrific. There is no toilet block yet.

With otters in the bay, and in the lochan, and golden eagles soaring overhead, this is a great site for nature lovers.

If you decide to stay here, then take the opportunity to have the evening meal, well worth it.

Probably one of the best sites we have ever visited! We like rural, get away from it all sites but won't compromise on cleanliness and friendliness and absolutely hate mud!

Tucked away on the eastern side of Harris, the site is owned by Tony and his wife who also run a B&B located across the road from the site entrance. The only indication that the site exists is the sign on the gate. A short incline (easily done by our 7. 5m motorhome) brings you to 5 privately spaced hard standings, each with EHU, own picnic benches and stunning views, sea in one direction and open countryside in all others.

The site has 2 private lochs the short walks to which are marked with waymarkers. Kayaks are freely available and, despite being no fisherman, can imagine this is an idyllic spot.

What makes this site truly unique is Tony's cooking! Prearrange a time and Tony will drive up the hillside with hot, freshly prepared local food. We had scallops, dressed crab, honey smoked salmon and oatcakes-delicious!

Tony had good local knowledge, ensuring you will get the most out of your visit to Harris.

We have given full marks for facilities because the site provided what we like, no playground, toilet block on-site club, just unspoiled countryside and a warm welcome

A site we will definitely be revisiting.
