Fantastic, friendly site in a beautiful location next to the sea loch. The facilities are the sports centre's toilets and showers (individual curtained showers but communal changing room) with laundry and washing up facilities added on. All were spotlessly clean and well maintained. The site is ideally situated for touring the island. There is no shop, but there is a franchised cafe with an outside seating area. We would definitely return.

Great campsite - beautiful location near to Port Charlotte. Spotlessly clean facilities. Anna was brilliant. Enjoyed Debbie's Cafe at Bruichladdich and the visit to Distillery - getting the local bus to Bowmore and Portnahavan driven by the fabulous Davy who must be the best bus driver in the world. Loved our stay there. Thank you.

This Site is the opposite end of the spectrum from Islay's other location at Kintra Farm. It is modern, well organised, has flat pitches and lots of space. Washing and laundry areas are clean and well kept. Staff, John and Anna were super friendly and helpful and a credit to the organisation. Although they have hook-ups, we were unable to get one as a large touring party of German Motorhomes had taken all of them. So, if you feel you need hookup, book ahead. Without hookup, we paid £16 for a Motorhome and 2 adults, excellent value. Even with this group and other vans, caravans and tents on Site, we never felt cramped in or had trouble getting washed/showered.

The Site is ~1 mile out of Port Charlotte which has a shop and two hotels. Bruichladdich Distillery is about 3 miles away and the local bus will take you to Bowmore in ~35 minutes if you don't want to drive/drink after a tour. The Port Charlotte Hotel does good, but not cheap, food and their (free) music sessions were worthwhile too. They have, as you would expect, quite a range of Whiskies.

We went along the coast to Portnahaven - a beautiful village well worth the trip.

We'd certainly come back to this Site on our next visit.

A great site run by the local community. Situated on the outskirts of Port Charlotte which has a shop, bar & restaurant. At the campsite entrance there is a café/snack bar. The campsite facilities are kept clean & are spacious. Showers were superb & the water was always lovely & warm. There are pitches for all type of units right on the edge of the site with amazing views over the loch.

What a super site with fantastic views! What a great way to add value to a sports ground. We received a lovely welcome from Anna and we were able to choose between a pitch at the bottom of the site or one at the top. We chose the pitch at the top because there was more space between the units. A very clean site. The showers and toilets were spotless and spacious with lots of hot water.

What a superbly run campsite which is a credit to the local community who saw a gap in the market and amply filled it!

We spent just two nights here in early September 2014 and the site was full each night. The hardstanding pitches at the bottom of the site are a bit close together but the sea views & the spectacular sunrise soon made up for that small criticism.

There are two water fill point - one at the top of the driveway by the equipment store and another one adjacent to the pitches. The EHU’s are against the fence and easily accessible. The CDP is up by the café/clubhouse so is a bit of a distance away, so maybe a small trolley would be a good investment!

The toilets, showers and washing up areas were kept spotless and are accessible at all times – even when the café etc. Is closed.

We had a fish & chip lunch at the café [to be recommended] and also made use of their free Wi-Fi facility [in the café only].

The staff were all friendly and accessible.

Port Charlotte has two pubs/hotels as well as a SPAR shop and the Museum of Islay Life.

There appears to be only one other campsite on Islay, so you have little choice should you not wish to wild camp. It would be great if other communities on the island could provide a similar campsite – say at Bowmore. Or maybe the RSPB could put aside some land on one of their two reserves?

Well done Port Mor!
