We stayed at floda bay for 8 nights and wished we'd booked for longer, the road from Tarbert is narrow and winding but with plenty of passing places we had no problem with our large caravan, on arrival we were met with a friendly wave and were greeted by the owner who escorted us up to our pitch. The site road is short and steep and a 44 is recommended, once at the top the views are magnificent, like sitting on top of the world. The site is basic, no toilets or showers which again was no problem, water and electric is at hand and each pitch has its own picnic table. After we had set up the owner arrived with fresh strawberries and homemade oatcakes, delicious, his hospitality added to the enjoyment of our stay. Shops are not in abundance but the owner's takeaways are excellent, among other things we had his seafood buffet this was out of this world and is highly recommended. The weather was kind to us and we found plenty to do, walking round the croft admiring the scenery, watching for wildlife and fishing were high on our list. A big thankyou to the owner &Co for making our stay tremendous, we will definitely return, hopefully next year. Mary &Bob xx

Just stayed for 3 nights, after a very warm welcome from the owner he directed us to the pitch up the steep track, our van is 7. 5 metres long and is quite wide but we had no problems. The owner came back with some freshly picked strawberries which were succulent and sweet and best we've ever had. He also brought us some freshly caught Mackerel.

The wildlife is amazing, we saw the 2 Sea Eagles fly past our window and the Golden Eagle was a regular visitor. Unfortunately did not see the Otters.

This site is in the back of beyond, but if you want peace and quiet this is the place to be, we will return.

My wife and I stayed at Flodabay for 2 nights. We were a bit hesitant about it as there is no toilet block or showers, which we have never done before. We were met at the gate by the owner and we agreed that it would not be possible for my car to tow the caravan up the slope. However one of the other residents volunteered to tow the caravan up. The change over was a complete disaster, which if you were to ask the owner, I'm sure he would relate the story to you. However we were rescued by the guy who was going to tow the van, the owner, his sons and a passer by. My eternal thanks go to all involved. Once on site we realised that all the effort to get there was well worth it. The views are absolutely stunning, the site we had was pretty private. The owner could not have been more helpful and our only sorrow was that we could not stay longer. However I would reiterate what is on the site's website, that a 4x4 is very much needed to get to the site. I certainly would return.

From the owner's warm welcome to his farewell we had an excellent stay at Flodabay. The view from the site is one of the best we have ever had out of our caravan window. The pitches are level and have their own picnic tables. Yes, the track up from the gate is a climb as others have said but please do not let this put anyone off. The owner lent my husband a fishing rod to use on his lochs and the work that has been done in creating walks was much appreciated. Being adults only added to the experience. Harris is a very different place with it's wonderful beaches and stark contrast of hills and we loved it. If you get a chance walk the old coffin route from the East to the West to appreciate the differences and on your return there's a welcome cup of tea and cake in the Bays Community Centre.

Great location and really friendly welcome. The facilities are basic water, hook up and dump point so you need to be self sufficient. The views are amazing especially if you get clear blue skies and sunshine. Great walks along the coast. Marked pathways around site with picnic areas. Saw lots of wildlife including seals and a hen harrier did not manage to see the otter even though other people did whilst we were on the site. Tried fly fishing on the 2 lochs but to windy for fish but great for no midgies. We had the sea food platter delivered to our van one night which was delicious. A unique location.

It's mostly been all been said by other reviewer's! This place is a must visit if you are looking for a relaxing few days.

The drive to the site from Tarbert is through a desolate grey moonscape, but don't let this put you off. Once you have negotiated the rather daunting single track road to the site you will understand why this place is so special. We were greeted by the extremely helpful and cheerful host, who directed us to our pitch at the very top of the site where we had outstanding 360 degree views of sea and mountains. There is as yet no amenity block, but the owner's plans for this are impressive, we had electric hook up and water nearby and as our van is fairly self sufficient the lack of a shower block was not a problem to us.

My husband took advantage of the fishing on the two nearby lochs, stocked with brown trout, but the highlight of his holiday was watching the resident dog otter saunter past him as he prepared to play a few holes on the owner's practice golf course, it was one of those breathtaking wow moments that left him regretting he was wielding a golf club and not his camera.

The site is dog friendly and is more suited to adults rather than families with young children. A tranquil, peaceful place that allows you to relax and do as little or as much as you want.

I would definitely recommend a visit and would be happy to return.
