We had booked 7 nights at Flodabay in our caravan and were so glad we did. The road leading up to Flodabay was a bit narrow, but spectacular scenery. The owner was at the gate to meet us on a sunny Saturday. We had booked pitch 1 over looking the bay, but a storm was coming in so the owner suggested pitching in his drive, which was a very good idea as the winds were very strong.

The owner was so friendly and couldn't do enough for us, a perfect host. We got some of his homemade sausages which were delicious and his eggs from the shore line chickens were out of this world.

Flodabay is an ideal base for touring Harris and going into Lewis. The pitches are up a steep hill, they are very spacious and the views are breathtaking. There are quite a few picnic benches to sit and enjoy the view, we even saw 2 sea otters. There aren't any showers or toilets as yet, but that didn't bother us having our own facilities.

There are 2 private lochs that you can fish in the owner also supplies the rods, loads of land to roam which our dog loved.

One night the owner arrived with the most delicious mashed potatoes, scallops and prawns.

All in all we had a fantastic holiday even though weather wasn't that kind. Definitely recommend Flodabay

Just returned from touring the Outer Hebrides in a campervan with my disabled grandson. Stayed here for two nights and the owner could not have been more helpful towards us both. I was met at the gate even though I was four hours late as the ferry from N. Uist was cancelled? The site was up a steep gravel roadway which I managed in first gear after the owner had driven me up the day before. My site and the views on this unusual but breathtaking landscape took my breath away as we'll as the hairy journey around the narrow roads. I wouldn't have missed this for the world. Water and electric hookup together with disposal was all we needed but there are plans for showers and toilets.

My second night I was treated to the most mouthwatering meal delivered hot to me. All I needed to do was eat it. What a treat.

I was treated to a sample oh their home made honey and freshly cooked bread and oat cakes.

I hadn't realised it but there was also a service wash available.

From our Luna landscape base we could see the lochs and even the seals and although I didn't. 't use them there was our own picnic table. Very few places to stay on this island but I am delighted that I braved the 'C' road to this unique setting.

The owner did everything within his power to make my stay a great one. Many thanks.

Surrounded by lunar landscape in a truly peaceful spot overlooking the bay. If you want total peace, tranquillity and wildlife this is the place. Coming south Floddabay B&B is on your left and opposite is a newly fenced entrance. If you not greeted upon arrival by Tony then pull off road and knock on B&B. Do not be put off by very steep drive, looks worse than it is and is worth the view. We got our 7mtr MH up fine. Only five pitches, with two prime ones at the front with an unobstructed view to sea. Level pitches(but front two very exposed in windy weather). Bay very good for seals and resident otter. Miles of open space behind and two lakes with marked out walks out and about. Only here two nights so did not try out the golf. EH, Grey waste and fresh water. No loo but had that all on board so not bothered. Picnic benches provided to each pitch. Tony could not be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Can order cooked meals delivered to your unit if ordered the night before. (Tony was a chef in previous times and his food is recommended). Only thing I would say is, it was the most expensive stop of the whole Hebrides trip, 20 a night & 5 extra for a front pitch with a view. Suited more to couples.

A wonderful site in a unique location. The owner has done everything possible to make this an exceptional experience. The food, brought hot to your van door would grace any high class restaurant and is all locally sourced. The owner has created a private nature reserve, complete with lochs, otters and orchids for campers to explore and enjoy, with the added benefit of free canoe and boat, fishing rods and golf drives. This tiny site(4 or 5 pitches)is a must for anyone exploring the Outer Hebrides and deserves to be a huge success.

We came here on the recommendation of a fellow motorhome driver at a camp in Lewis. He couldn't speak highly enough of the owners and the view, so I rang up and managed to book us in for that night. We took the scenic route along Golden Road which was stunning and showed us all of the east side of Harris. However, we now realise that you can get to Flodabay quicker and easier by taking the west coast and coming off through Leverborough. Anyway, we were met at the gate by the owner and his son and directed up a steep hill to an amazing spot with a spectacular panorama.

Our big 7 metre van coped fine with the hill. We were astonished at the spot. Looking out over a bay and rugged mountains covered in heather. It was a very grey windy day when we arrived but it was still gorgeous. We instantly decided to stay an extra few days! It is the owner's extra attention to detail that make this place special though. The view comes with 2 private lochs which you can fish in. He brought up his own rod for my husband as it was more suitable for trout fishing. He provided us with oars and life jackets and we were told to take the boat or kayak out when ever we wanted!

A really nice touch is the good quality picnic tables which come with each pitch, and others are dotted around in the mountains to make the most of the views. Hidden behind each pitch is a golf driving range complete with a barrel full of balls and clubs to whack away into the hills! That was surreal fun to do in gale force winds! Also, your dog has free range: there are no sheep in the 30 odd acres so he can run free in the heather and around the loch. It ticked so many boxes for us, included a strong phone signal.

He only allows 5 pitches, infact we had it to ourselves for 2 days. The owner relies heavily on word of mouth as the site is hidden from the road. Water and electric are available but as yet, no loo or shower (though he has some great plans for these!) However, in a self contained van this was not an issue and disposal points are very handily located. On top of all this the owner offers a homecooked meal delivered to your van if ordered the day before. There was so much food in the package and it was lovely.

I was able to watch the seals in the bay and scoured the sea view for dolphins. It was complete tranquillity. My husband spent hours at the loch fishing and simply unwinding. Perfect. We will be back.

What a wonderful find! Owner couldn't have been more helpful, meeting us at the gate and driving us up to our choices of pitch. The views were wonderful, the children enjoyed the gold, and if only we had more time we would have taken advantage of the offer of life jackets to go out on one of the 2 lochs within walkable distance of the site, and belonging to the owner. This site is a must to return to when we go back to Harris.

In addition to the site, the owner offers his homemade, if not home grown, produce. Free range eggs, but better still, the most amazing marmalade, jam and much more. The crab and bread was superb, and I only wish we'd bought more of all we did.

I've marked 6/10 for facilities on the basis they are few HOWEVER teh owner will be installing toilets and showers this year and then it would be 10/10.

Customer service - there should be a 12/10 - the owner couldn't do more for us, he was great.
