Tony made us very welcome, and was there at the gate to meet us, bringing his beautiful oatcakes, smoked salmon & gooseburgers, all home made. The ascent to the pitches is up a steep track, but if you arrive by caravan, Tony can arrange a 4x4 to haul it up for you.

Spectacular views in all directions. No showers or toilets, but water, power (10a) and drainage on pitch, with cdp close by, so not an issue!

Highly recommended, but remember to book in plenty of time, as Tony is normally and rightfully full!

A unique location. Outstanding views over lochs and mountains and so peaceful. Tony made us very welcome from the minute we arrived. We were delighted with his gift of his home made oat cakes, goose burgers and fresh fish. If you want tranquillity, scenery and wildlife this is a perfect location. Unfortunately we were only there for two nights and we just wish we had allowed more time to stay there to see the wildlife. We will definitely be going back and would highly recommend Floda Bay Farm and Tony for his dedication to conserving the natural surroundings and wildlife. Thank you Tony from Dennis and Nina

If you are searching for an island with a real ‘castaway’ feeling then this is your place. We were lucky enough to stumble onto previous reviews about Flodabay and decided to take a trip with our caravan in October. Don’t let the single track roads from the ferry port to the site put you off - we did it towing our beast of an 8 meter twin axle without any issues. The site is remote and wonderful with views everywhere you turn. It’s going to be difficult to return to the ‘standard’ campsite in the future! We were very fortunate to have the place to ourselves (there are only 3 large pitches well separated) and the dogs benefited from the walk to the Lochans each morning. So if you are there when others are too don’t expect overcrowding or even being able to see your neighbours - what a joy! Tony could not do more for us and we thank him dearly for his hospitality and oak cakes/seafood. We will certainly return for longer to explore the neighbouring islands but to be honest everything we wanted was on our doorstep in this wonderful, isolated, wild and unspoilt island - may it stay that way! Thank you Tony and Sharon for allowing us to share your beautiful spot on the island. It really was hard to leave!

'Breathtaking Site'

A small amazing site with only 3 pitches perched on your own plateau with glorious views across the sea.

Beautiful walks to your own Lochs (ideal if you like fishing). The best site we have been on - electric+ water+ CDP on site but we had no problems using our own on board facilities.

Tony (the best) was extremely knowledgeable about the area and supplied tasty treats (oat cakes, mackerel & lovely goose burgers) he and Sharon have put a lot of love and thought into making this a really magical place and we would highly recommend it to those seeking a perfect, peaceful place on 'Top of the World'

Thank you Sharon and Tony for a great Stay. Love Debbie & John

Reviewer: PeterBoek 2 reviews from this member

On a special terrain higher up, with amazing views of the bay and Harris, the owner of the lovely B & B has created 3 very special places for caravan/motorhome.

The concept is great: to fully experience the Outer Hebrides like nothing else on a secluded lot with lochs, and beautiful nature, and without the usual camping facilities (however fresh water, electricity, disposal of grey water and chemical waste present). So if you want to experience 'wild' camping with comfort and great views and with the feeling of being submerged into nature and all the elements, do not miss this place. There are enough things to do on this very scenic island, the location is great, the owner is very hospitable, his gooseburgers very tasty, there are seals to be seen etc. Quiet, secluded, not for the faint-hearted and not for children I guess. Not to be missed.

This is definitely not your average campsite. Our exclusive pitch 'on top of the world' had a water tap, electric hook-up, chemical toilet disposal point and two picnic tables. Anyone who needs anything more, such as showers, toilets, laundry and shop on site will be disappointed, but you will get fantastic views, total peace and quiet and an unbeatable experience of all manner of life on a Hebridean island. This encompasses wildlife such as sea eagles souring overhead and dragon flies in the nearby pools and lochs and the everyday rhythm of life in the community such as the activity of boats in the bay.

This four-night stay was part of a six week 'road trip' to celebrate our recent retirement and we just wanted to chill out after a couple of weeks of travelling round the islands, partly wild camping. Our West Highland Terrier, Charlie, enjoyed the freedom of the hills and spent most of his time at Flodabay standing on top of rocks, looking about and sniffing for rabbits.

Tony was an excellent host and good company, but left us to ourselves most of the time and we enjoyed his tasty goose burgers, oatcakes and two locally caught brown trout. As a bonus, TV reception in the evenings was surprisingly the best we have had on the whole of our travels.

We would definitely recommend this site.

We had a fantastic 7 nights at the Flodabay campsite perched on the 'top of the world' overlooking the magical Flodabay. The beautiful sunrises, sunset an the glistening sea views were truly amazing, and then there are the seals basing on the rocks down below. Tony was incredibly helpful as the host, attentive and informative without ever being intrusive. He had a 4x4 on hand to help us get the caravan up tot he top pitch, which wasn't a problem at all. We were able to navigate the narrow Harris roads easily and carefully with our caravan and estate car. Also he was very generous; the smoked salmon and homemade oatcakes and goose burgers were delicious. He advised on places to explore, kept us abreast of the weather so we could plan the best days to explore outdoors and indoors. The landscape on the east side around Flodabay and 'The Bays' area is rugged, rocky and there are many hidden lochs and paths to explore. A brilliant base for this amazing Island, we traveled up to the Lewis part of the island and were able to explore easily from here.

If you're looking for showers, dishwashing facilities, toilet blocks, laundrettes and pub entertainment etc then this isn't the place for you, although the usual water, electric hook up and Chemical disposal is supplied. But if you are looking for stunning views, have your own toilet and washing facilities, are a fan of 'wild' camping (with a difference) then I highly recommend. We would go back like a shot and enjoy the views, peace, quiet and beauty of this magical place. Thank you Tony for a fantastic experience.

Flodabay caravan/motorhome site is fabulous. The views from each pitch are breathtaking. It's a really unique site, you feel like you are wild camping, looking out to sea and over to rocky hills but with the essential facilities of electricity, water and chemical disposal. It is incredibly peaceful and has the opportunity to see Golden and Sea Eagles just by scanning the skies from the pitch.

Harris is a beautiful island, especially the East side where Flodabay is. Pretty much all of Harris is single track road as is the approach to the site, but don't let that put you off, there are lots of passing places. We easily towed our caravan.

If you are expecting a 'caravan club-esque' type site you may be disappointed, but if you love being out in the wild, in an incredibly tranquil place and experience the real essence of the Outer Hebrides you will love this site.

The owner Tony was very welcoming and friendly and made our stay unforgettable.

Another reviewer said this site is unique, not true, it's absolutely unique! This was our second visit and we stayed seven nights. Tony only lets 3 or 4 pitches so that everyone can enjoy the amazing views and sit at their personal picnic bench in front of their unit. No loos, no showers but peace and tranquillity of the very best kind. Water, power and cdp close by the pitches.

Wonderful welcome from Tony and on departure both Tony and Sharon came to say goodbye with gifts of homemade oatcakes and gooseburgers. Good walks, waymarked to the lochs which you can reach without leaving the site. Might be a while before we return to the Hebridies but when we do this will be our first port of call without a doubt. 100% recommended.

What a cracking site overlooking the Bay. A beautiful peaceful place. Loved watching the seals in the evening down by the pier. Saw a few birds or pray swooping over head and a gorgeous sunset, not to mention the deer at certain places along the way. Our dog loved seeing the sheep, they're everywhere & Tony, our host, was very welcoming took us up to site showed us what we needed to know & left us to it but to text him if we needed anything at all! Must mention the Harris Hotel which is about 9 miles away, we had forgotten that places are closed on a Sunday & that's the day we arrived, got a table later in the evening after the dinner rush had been. The food was fabby as was their service, great wee place to eat. Will defo stay at Flodabay Farm again if we are ever back. Cheers Tony
