Fantastic spot, unless the wind gets up! There is loads of space and you can pitch up with views out across the sea. It really is quite breathtaking. The wash blocks are sited back at the farm so depending on where you pitch you could end up with a fair walk. There were two showers and three toilets per sex and a washing up room in the main block and a couple of porta loos in the main field. These were all very well built and kept clean and tidy.

The shop at Finna-Foot (that's how it's pronounced, not spelt) is OK but we found the Spa on Iona better! The village pub is friendly too.

Must do's: Iona, Fingals cave (£30 per person) worth every penny! Carsaig Arches (a walk not for the faint hearted), Ben More summit.

We blew our eating-out budget in one go at the Ninth Wave Restaurant. Including drinks £140 for the two of us but a fantastic 4 course meal to remember for all the right reasons.

For the location, one of the most memorable sites we've been to.

This site is absolutely stunningly remote - right on the beach with white golden sands and deep turquoise sea looking toward Iona

There are no electric hook ups and no formal layout of pitches - but nothing like this matters, the location is so beautiful with acres of space - its worth the long drive from the Oban ferry (1. 45hrs)

The farmer and owner is friendly and helpful, the showers (2 male 2 female) and toilets (2 + 2) wewre always beautifully clean

It was quiet when we were there with only a couple of other campers/campervans so access to the facilities was never a problem

A 30 min walk takes you to Fionnaphort with cafe, shop, Post Office, the ferry to Iona and depending on the time of day, hoards of tourists disembarking from the tour coaches

Our favourite site of the trip and we'll be back

In good weather, the location of this site is just idyllic- it is possible to camp overlooking the sandy beaches and turquoise bay with its tidal islets and rocky coves. It overlooks Iona and the island of Erraid. The sea around it is clean and safe for water sports, and the sunset from the campsite is just wonderful. There is plenty of space in the main camping field, and assuming you don't choose to camp right on the coast, you could pitch up with a good bit of space between you and others- even in high season. It is however, becoming a very popular and 'cool' site, for obvious reasons, and occasionally suffers because of this- a lot of visitors with a lot of money and a lot of kit who are clearly pitched up for a long stay, busy toilets and at times, a bit noisy. We did come in high season though, and recognise that, if you have the luxury of being able to come in May or June, it must be absolutely amazing. The facilities are very pleasant, although quite a walk to the main block and its showers and dishwashing facilities, and when it is as busy as it was when we were there, there are inevitable queues. A couple of plumbed portaloos are a handy addition for the middle of the night loo visits! Its a pleasant mile walk/drive/ride along a singletrack road into Fionnphort and the Iona ferry, a small shop selling the basics and the pub.

The other feature of the site is its exposure- we moved the day before we knew strong wind was coming in, and even then there was a constant strong breeze off the sea, and other campers who moved after us told us the site owner- the farmer- had gone round telling people to move off the top of the dunes overlooking the sea. Even to move off there though, there was very limited shelter and once the wind got up, it would have wrecked tents and ripped them to shreds. A site with the potential to be wonderful, or really pretty grim, dependent on what the weather throws at you!

The big plus point for this site is it's superb location beside a beautiful beach; white sand and calm, crystal clear water. There is also plenty of space to pitch on short turf that dries quickly. It is a very popular site but we were easily able to find a spot which felt uncrowded and gave privacy.

The facilities are very well kept despite the demands made on them by the high number of users. The only drawback is that there are few toilets/showers for the number of campers and so there is an element of queuing at busy times.

It is a remote site which is part of its attraction. There is a shop and a pub in Fionnport. The pub, The Keel Row, also does excellent carry out. The next nearest shop is small and in Bunessan about 15 minutes drive away.

We would happily go back in the future.

Remote and beautiful location. Opportunities to pitch in different kinds of places. Ideal for a beach based holiday with good access for water facilities.

Generally quiet and we were there in high season with a lot of young people around.

The shower and toilet facilities are excellent in quality although relatively limited numbers.

Limited local facilities in Fionnphort but the pub (The Keel Row) serves excellent good value meals, and the local shop is reasonably stocked - recommend the local meats, cheese, pies, sausages and black pudding.

We would go out of our way to return.

Having used the UKCampsite.co.uk reviews for searching out places thought it time I wrote a few up myself.

We absolutely love this site, often including Mull in a holiday just so we can visit. It is a bit like wild camping but on a site. Having our own facilities we park right down by the beach with the back of the van just a couple of yards from the sea. Spend hours watching the birds and watching the tide rise and fall.

Terrific walk across to the island at low tide by turning right when you leave the farm. It is like you are on an exotic island as you walk across. Great for a day trip over to Iona.

There are good facilities if you need them but we just use the water and chemical disposal point.
