We chose to visit Flodabay Farm because of the excellent reviews we had read and we found it more than matched our expectations. The warm welcome, the facilities, the stunning views and the wildlife - not to mention the seafood platter - were all as reported by previous reviewers. We will certainly visit again and stay longer.

OMG what a fantastic unique place this is, Firstly the road approaching from both Tarbet & Levensburgh is somewhat challenging single track hairpin bends shear drops etc. But we managed it with care in a large motorhome ! Tony, the owner met us at the gate and gave us instructions to follow his 4x4 up the steep gravel track keeping in 1st gear and not to start until he had reached the 'snowman' boulder at the top, after a bit of wheelspin and white knuckles we arrived at the top with the most amazing view in the world over the turquoise waters of the Minch towards Skye surrounded by a landscape that could be from another planet - amazing !There are only 4 pitches all with EHU and there's a few water points dotted about but no toilet or shower facilities ! There are otters & seals in the loch below and as our visit was during the end of June we were lucky enough to see the Most beautiful Midnight sun and an aurora (northern lights) We pre ordered the fish platter (£50 for two) that was absolutely superb (best scallops we've ever had) This is definitely a must stay site if your touring the Outer Hebrides ! we will be back !

As others have said this is an unusual site. Only a very few pitches with no showers or toilets but if you have your own facilities it's no problem whatsoever. The owner Tony contacted us by text the day before our arrival to check which ferry we were on and then was waiting for us at the gate to take us up to our pitch. The Golden Road which you need to take from Leverburgh to get to the site was an interesting experience with a caravan. Very narrow single track road with small passing places but do-able with care. You definitely need a 4x4 to tow a caravan up to the pitches but the pitches when you get there are lovely with fabulous views out over the Minch to Skye. Water and EHU nearby

We had a dog with us and he was able to run free in the 50 acre fenced in area.

The seafood platter (£50) was good value and delicious and lasted us 2 nights.

It is quite a remote site with plenty of room between the pitches so no problems with noise from others residents. The landscape is interesting and we felt almost as if we were in a lunar landscape (lots of granite rock and peat and heather) but attractive in its own right. When we left Tony was waiting at the bottom gate to see us out and to check that all had been well. He is a very friendly chap and the family are obviously trying to create something for a niche market which is working well.

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.
