 Well equipped community run site, friendly staff.

Site cafe open all day everyday and walking distance to village facilities and small beach.

Hard standing area with hookup is quite narrow between sites if someone has a large awning

 Beautiful spot on the shore if Loch Indaal with great views across the island toward Jura, and Islay is a beautiful island :)

Community owned and run by locals, Port Mor is a lovely site. Staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Great pitches for all kinds of campers/van users. I travelled with my dog who loved his trip here :)

The camp field itself was clean, dry (no mud!) and of good quality, with the grass recovering quickly as users left site. I picked a coast side pitch which although breezy from time to time, I enjoyed the gentle sounds of the water at the shoreline, and occasionally the local wildlife. There is also access to the beach and a large play area for kids.

The site has great facilities including warm showers and laundry provision alongside the usual toilets and washing up provision. The facilities and shared areas were all spotless.

The on-site cafe serves a reasonable range of food and has a small bar; there is a well stocked local shop a short walk up the road in Port Charlotte, with the site being easily accessible and located on the main bus route.

Definitely a site worth basing yourself at for any length of stay on the island. 10/10 from me!

Reviewer: Darrel 1 review from this member

 Excellent location, right on the coast with great views and facilities, Very helpful and knowledgable staff,

Only minor gripe was that as a pet friendly site we had to eat our breakfast ( which was very good) outside and as this was Islay it was cold before we finished.

 Very friendly welcome, great facilities and would recommend it highly.

Super location - 10 minute walk from Port Charlotte, and a great base for exploring the rest of the island.

Only downside was the weather. We will be back.

 Excellent campsite. Facilities spotless, good hot showers, laundry facility, on site community restaurant/bar and good play park if travelling with kids.

Views were spectacular, on a bus route if required and staff very helpful with information about the area.

I would definitely stay again.

 Beautiful location, one of the best campsites we’ve stayed at. Friendly, helpful staff.

The best hot showers, cafe on site breakfasts recommended. Plenty toilets, laundry facilities, WiFi at the cafe.

Only down side was pitched beside the road-take earplugs, , and the farmer in the adjoining fields baling hay although this was nothing to do with the actual site.

Would definitely like to return.

Reviewer: Roseanne1 1 review from this member

 We had a really warm welcome, which was a relief due to the current pandemic.

The facilities were kept spotlessly clean and the showers were hot and powerful. The site is quite exposed to the elements, but the views were worth it.

The on site cafe serves delicious food and coffee, but It's a short walk into the village and the staff at the eatery's there were just as friendly and welcoming as the campsite.

I'd return tomorrow if I could.

 Hooked up with a sea view. Wee walk down to a quiet rocky beach area with the dog.

Had some nice fish and chips in the cafe on our 1st night served by a lovely woman.

Shower and toilet area a few of minutes walk away and is kept spotlessly clean.

Campsite is very close to port Charlotte and about 30 mins from port askaig and port ellen.

Overall a very pleasant stay and would highly recommend.

 There are not many proper campsites on Islay although wild camping is possible in places. Port Mor is a good site to take advantage of hot showers, water supply, waste disposal, cafe etc.

There's plenty of space for tents and you can pitch where you like on the big flat field. Some people prefer to camp on the edge of the field facing the sea but you will get the brunt of the weather there and you still get the views camping further back.

Grass is short and the place is tidy. Tent pegs go in easy and hold unlike sandy sites. It cost us about £9pp in a medium sized tent. Motorhomes, caravans and campervans are in a separate area of the site so the field is just campers.

This is a community run place so there's a football pitch, children's playground and cafe. It's fairly quiet at most times and never crowded. No kitchen for meal prep but sinks to wash up.

Showers are good and free but in the communal style so less privacy. Cafe has some decent affordable options including Indian food and there are other places to eat in Port Charlotte nearby. Try the Lochidaal Seafood Kitchen.

Port Charlotte also has a Spar and petrol pump. Bridgend has a bigger Spar type shop but you have to go to Bowmore for a Co-op and other amenities.

 Lovely location, great views and well laid out site. We chose to go non hookup so we could utilise the far corner of the field overlooking the bay.

The facilities are spotless but the shower area has a communal feel to it as there is no private space in the actual showers to get dressed. Fresh water and disposal points are all easily accessible and available for a small charge if not actually stopping at the site.

The small café area served a mean breakfast in a light pleasant environment. The warden was really friendly and helpful with lots of local knowledge.
