Reviewer: Bev and Nige 7 reviews from this member

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!

An excellent site with so much to do.

The setting was superb overlooking the bay and the walk to the headland was stunning.

The site itself was unique, offering pursuits along with the chance to watch the wild life at the two lochs, both of which were awesome.

We were made to feel very welcome with an informative explanation of the area being given.

The oat cakes, honey and marmalade were well enjoyed.

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 44 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

Just stayed for 3 nights, after a very warm welcome from the owner he directed us to the pitch up the steep track, our van is 7. 5 metres long and is quite wide but we had no problems. The owner came back with some freshly picked strawberries which were succulent and sweet and best we've ever had. He also brought us some freshly caught Mackerel.

The wildlife is amazing, we saw the 2 Sea Eagles fly past our window and the Golden Eagle was a regular visitor. Unfortunately did not see the Otters.

This site is in the back of beyond, but if you want peace and quiet this is the place to be, we will return.

My wife and I stayed at Flodabay for 2 nights. We were a bit hesitant about it as there is no toilet block or showers, which we have never done before. We were met at the gate by the owner and we agreed that it would not be possible for my car to tow the caravan up the slope. However one of the other residents volunteered to tow the caravan up. The change over was a complete disaster, which if you were to ask the owner, I'm sure he would relate the story to you. However we were rescued by the guy who was going to tow the van, the owner, his sons and a passer by. My eternal thanks go to all involved. Once on site we realised that all the effort to get there was well worth it. The views are absolutely stunning, the site we had was pretty private. The owner could not have been more helpful and our only sorrow was that we could not stay longer. However I would reiterate what is on the site's website, that a 4x4 is very much needed to get to the site. I certainly would return.
