We have just returned from touring the scottish isles for 4 weeks in our campervan. We rang Tony up on the off chance of staying at Flodabay. Luckily for us he had room, we stayed for 2 nights and Tony could not have been more helpful and friendly and made us very welcome. All though the weather could have been better it really is a wonderful place to stay. We had a pitch that overlooked the sea and small harbour and the view was spectacular. Tony has 2 lochs which you can fish on with rods supplied free of charge, as previous reviewers have mentioned you can order a fantastic sea food platter cooked and delivered to your door by Tony which includes homemade bread and oatcakes, a must when you stay here! All though there are no shower or toilet facilities this did not bother us as we were self suffient and Tony is trying to sort this out. All in all while we were away we stayed in many camps and Flodabay was one of the best if not the best we used. We hope to return to the magnificent isles again next year and will definitely return to Flodabay. If on Harris do not miss this site it is a gem ! and on leaving Tony gave us a jar of homemade marmalade with whiskey and homemade honey, delicious.
Another memorable stay at this wonderful small motor home and caravan site.
I would echo previous reviews (eg Bev and Nige) which describe the breathtaking views and peacefulness of this location. The food, hosts and surrounding area.
This is a venue not to be missed and is hard to beat. The scenery is stunning and the tranquillity all around something you will not forget.
The onwer is an amazing host, he could not be more welcoming, friendly and helpful. From the moment you arrive until he waves you on your way, you are made to feel like a family friend. Nothing is too much trouble and the home cooked and locally sourced food a wonderful addition to this fabulous 'find'.
His Seafood platter is a unique experience, everything locally sourced with a taste experience you will not forget. The home baking available and award winning Oatcakes are a must, and pack plenty Oatcakes to take home!
You will not find many places as special as this on your travels and I would rank this as the best, without doubt, on the Islands (I have visited on numerous occasions and stayed on many sites).
We have just returned from 2 weeks travelling around the Highlands and Islands of Scotland and had the most magnificent holiday.
We decided to give Flodabay Farm site a try when it was recommended to us by others who had stayed there the week before we were visiting Harris.
What a find! This place is magnificent. We ended up staying for 2 nights, although we wished we could have stayed longer!
It has the most impressive 360 degree scenery of sea, hills and moorland and is so tranquil and relaxing. Who needs the Greek Isles when you have this in Britain!
The owner is the perfect host. Nothing is too much trouble for him and he has spent a lot of time and effort (and money) developing a site that has the 'Wow' factor and is a real talking point, especially with its own driving range!
There are 2 lochs to fish or swim in or even go in the Kayak that is there for you if you want.
Binoculars are a must as there are lots of birds including Golden Eagles and Sea Eagles in the area and there's also an Otter Run further up from the site.
If you go then you really must try one of the owner's freshly cooked fish buffets. He cooks what he catches and brings it to your unit. We had a delicious meal that we will never forget!
We had; Dressed Crab, Hot Smoked Salmon on a bed of Rocket and Scallops and Prawns in a 'Special Sauce' served with Homemade Olive Bread and Oakcakes to follow - all delicious!
We have not stopped talking about this place since we left and can not wait to go back.
Only visit with a Caravan though if you have a 4x4 vehicle as it is quite a steep, gravel slope to get up to the site. The site has no toilets or shower block, hence I've only given 8/10 but does have electric hook up and water point and has a toilet disposal point.
Its well worth a visit, especially if you want to get away from it all!
What a wonderful peaceful location. Don't miss this site, it's in a perfect, tranquil spot, with beautiful views in all directions. As has already been said, there are a couple of things to note (1) no toilet/shower block so you need to be self sufficient and (2) there is quite a steep slope up to your pitch, but it's perfectly do-able in a motorhome in first gear! The owner is a lovely friendly host, lent us fishing rods and kayaks for the beautiful lochs, we played golf on the driving range, saw eagles, took wonderful walks. We stayed for 3 nights and did not want to leave, we would definitely return and stay for longer, the Isle of Harris is stunning and ideal for 'getting away from it all'.
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 4×4 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
