We have stayed at Flodabay three times now. The site is much appreciated and the view fantastic, as is the welcome from Tony. The proximity of the two lochs in which we may fish for trout is a bonus and the freedom of the rocky landscape is much appreciated by our little dog. We intend to return next year.

This great site met all expectation. Tony and Sharon have created a site which enables you to observe the amazing wild life of South Harris without leaving your caravan, Eagles and Seals often, Merlins if your quick, Gannets diving in the sea, unfortunately the otters didn't appear, you have to be lucky to be in the right place at the right time to see these.

The lochs on site can be fished and the wild brown trout are up to three pounds, I caught one for dinner and with the herbs by the side of the pitch, very tasty. We enjoyed 7 days of fine weather and did not want to leave. If like us you enjoy quiet sites and don't need a toilet block this site is a must We will be back.

Fantastic 4 nights at this unique site in idyllic scenery. Individual pitches are carefully placed to be private and even have pots of herbs around to use. Tony ensured he was available for any query without being obtrusive, dropping in a delicious pack of home made oatcakes then later some pollock fillets. The road from Leverburgh is narrow but clearly marked and very quiet, as is the road on to Tarbert and passable with care by touring caravans. We stopped on our way to the site to watch a golden eagle soar over the car, then once at our pitch we had a panoramic view over the bay. Cant recommend this site enough and if we visit Harris again, we'll certainly be booking in to Flodabay.

Wow, wow, wow! What an amazing site! Perched at the top of a hill overlooking Flodabay we were able to watch seals playing in the water and basking on the rocks while we ate breakfast. The pitches are so well spaced that we felt like we were there on our own. Tony and Sharon went out of their way to make our arrival easy, with Tony meeting us at the bottom of the lane with a 4x4 to tow our large caravan up the steep gravel track. We were able to site the van looking out to sea with ease. Hook up and fresh water were within easy reach, and chemical disposal close but well hidden. We arrived on a Sunday afternoon with no dinner plans, but Tony managed to get us a table at the local Rodel Hotel {delicious!}. Our dog loved being able to run off the lead around the two lochs that are within the 50 acres of fenced land. My wife and I both celebrated our birthdays while staying at Flodabay and we celebrated with Tony and Sharons seafood buffet - dressed crab, plump scallops, local langoustines and smoked salmon served freshly cooked to the caravan door, along with delicious homemade bread and oatcakes, as well as a surprise birthday cake! Don't be put off by the steep approach road or the single track coast road, we hardly ever saw any other cars on the road and didn't meet any cars at all on the way to Tarbert with the caravan to reluctantly catch the ferry home. Tony could not have been more accommodating or helpful, and the remote location makes this one of the most relaxing sites we have ever visited. Tony was a wealth of local knowledge and he or Sharon were always available on the phone. If you want to see the Outer Hebrides at their wonderful, unspoilt best this is the site for you.

Not much more to add to the previous reviews as they say it all really. This was our second visit to Flodabay Farm site and hope it's not our last as we love the place. There's no where like it! The peace and tranquility along with stunning scenery, privacy and a great host make this a place to remember. If the weather was 10 degrees warmer on Harris then you could almost be in the Caribbean, with its lovely white sandy beaches and turquoise sea but then hey ho thank goodness its not as it would be noisy and inundated with people! Flodabay is real retreat with lovely walks on top of the moors with the dog and a great place for watching birds and wildlife. Look out for Otters and Seals basking on the rocks in the bay below! We were lucky enough to be sited on the new pitch (number one) on the site this year and were even more delighted with the views than last time. All the pitches (I think Tony now has 6?) are nice and secluded, with spectacular views. Tony is a great host and of course, we'd ordered his home cooked fish platter that he hand delivers to your van and it was bang on time too Tony! It was simply delicious and another one to remember. Tony had even put some special 'wee goodies' in our basket and also gave us some special treats before we left. Thanks Tony, you helped make our visit really memorable yet again, we'll certainly be returning, only next time we intend to stay for longer and visit our favourite beach (Luskentyre) that we never got to see this time.

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.
