Another wonderful stay at this amazing location. The perfect place if you are looking for peace, seclusion and breathtaking views. Short walks take you to two private lochs where you can picnic while watching electric blue damselflies dancing in the reeds. Watching seals in the bay, barbies in the evening with Tony's kind gifts of goose burgers and brilliant sunsets over the hill. Can't recommend enough.

Spent 4 fabulous days at Tony and Sharon's beautiful camp site a piece of heaven on Earth, Tony was a brilliant host aiding us get our motorhome up to its splendid viewpoint, overlooking the bay below, this was despite Tony recovering from a hip op and walking with aid of sticks. He presented goose burgers and homemade oat cakes and 6 fresh eggs as a welcome gift. We could not have picked a better site. Looking forward to returning next year.

Bert and Carole.

Really enjoyed my time at Flodabay. And so did the dog. Tony was so helpful on arrival. Especially about navigating the slope to the site. However once at the top the view was breathtaking and well worth the 1st gear drive.

Lovely to have a secluded site and peace and quiet. Also lovely to be welcomed with the thoughtful welcome pack.

As I was on my own the fee was pricey but absolutely in order for couples or more.

Just got back from 3 nights at this really spot on site, the owner Tony was a really good host with his personnel greeting and some nice home made treats of goose burgers and oatcakes.

We arrived by ferry and true to form, he rang us to make sure we were on route and gave us clear instructions on how to get to Flodbay.

You have to be patience when driving to the site, as the roads are narrow, but really scenic and quiet, but when you get there, you are in for a surprise as your pitch is up a gravel road hill with a fantastic view (don't be put off with the gravel road).

The site only take 3 units but doesn't have toilet/shower facilities but as 240v, but that's a small price to pay, when you see your allocated pitch Its so beautiful and peaceful that we felt it was our own little kingdom.

We had a motor scooter and we travelled about the island which was perfect, the island has some nice cafes and the beaches on the west side are a must, but Flodbay is really nice. The site is more expensive than most sites on the island, but its so nice and if you want to be yourselves, without the crowds this is the place Well done Tony !

We had a fabulous 5 nights at this site. You are met by Tony who guides you to your pitch and, in our case, presented us with some fantastic edible goodies. The pitches are very well spaced and private and the views fantastic. The grounds of Flodabay Farm are extensive and include two lochans with plenty of places to picnic. There is lots of wildlife around. The site makes an excellent base for exploring Harris. Definitely to be recommended. On the expensive side as there are no showers but worth it just the same.

My husband and I have just returned from a 6 week tour of Scotland in our caravan and the jewel in the crown was undoubtedly the week we stayed at Flodabay Farm. Our pitch was the top one of only 3 on the site, with incredible views over the Minch and reaching as far as Glen Coe on a clear day. We sat and watched golden eagles and seals to the accompaniment of cuckoos, just perfect. Tony could not have been more accommodating and his gift of homemade goose burgers, oakcakes and smoked salmon was very welcome. We would highly recommend this site to anyone visiting Harris. Just stunning!

We stayed here for a week with our large, twin axle caravan. Getting up to the top of the hill wasn't a problem as Tony had arranged the help of a land rover. The site was lovely, like a fully serviced pitch, and the views were amazing. Tony greeted us with, his now legendary, home made oatcakes, which were delicious.

Tony was very knowledgeable on local wildlife and where to get the best possible sightings.

We were also given homemade gooseburgers, freshly caught pollock and fresh eggs, all of which were delicious. Tony was definitely the host with the most and I'm sure a stay in his bed & breakfast establishment would be great.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay on the island and at Flodabay and would definitely return.

Just beware of the roads with a caravan!

This is a fabulous location with views across to Skye. Tony is a fine host providing us with oatcakes, fish and goose burgers. But the key is the beauty of the place, 3 sites make for privacy and there are good walks into moorland or along the coast. The site is an easy drive from the ferries or to St Clements Church. Easy to get around although the roads are narrow.

The moonscape location is very different from many other places in the Western Isles.

There is good water and power, no toilets or showers so you need to be fully self contained.

This was such a fantastic location. It was so quiet - the only sounds were the birds. Tony was very welcoming, so much so that we extended our stay by two night. Harris is a beautiful island, not at all what we had imagined and we will definitely be back. The drive along the Golden Road is not to be missed. We saw otters, dolphins and seals. On the way back to Stornoway we saw a golden eagle and a sea eagle - what a great end to an already memorable stay

This is a little gem of a site, nestled into the hillside. The drive along the Golden Road is beautiful if you want to take that route. Tony was waiting at the gate, the entrance to the site at our prearranged time. We followed him up the track (keep your vehicle in first gear with plenty of revs), into the hillside to our pitch, which was spacious and not overlooked. It was easy to think we were the only ones there even though the pitch above us was occupied. This is the nearest you will get to wild camping, with the benefits of fresh water, hook-up and chemical disposal. It is only when you get out of your vehicle and look east that you see the full majesty of the view. In an elevated position you are overlooking Loch Fhleoideabhagh, a sea loch, opening out to The Minches, with Skye in the distance. Waking up each morning to see that was a bonus.

The fresh water lochs within the 30ac site are well waymarked and well worth a visit while your here. This is a site where you can just sit and watch the world go by if you wish. There are various raptors around and we did see a sea eagle flying nearby to us. Tony said there were Sea Eagles and Golden Eagles nesting in the mountains to the west of the site. If you do want to explore the area, then a lovely drive south takes to Rodel (16th C church) then further round takes you to the magnificent beaches of South Harris. Tony has purposely kept this site small to retain the wild camping feeling. All in all this site is brilliant and just waiting for you to explore. Just do it!
