Isle Of Iona Campsite: View over the pitches

General

  • Family-friendly site at a working croft on a tiny car-free island
  • Firepit and barbecue area
  • Five minutes' walk from the beach and several more within easy reach

Cars driving you nuts? Want an old-style camping trip on a pretty and peaceful island? Retreat to the tiny Isle of Iona in the Inner Hebrides, an ancient isle full of history where kings were laid to rest and monks wandered in scholarly contemplation, and which is still known today as a place of peace.

Cars are allowed for resident islanders only (if you’re driving, you can leave your car at the ferry port in Fionnphort), but it’s easy to get about under your own steam as the island is only three and a half miles long.

From the ferry, it’s a 20-minute walk to Isle of Iona Campsite on the west of the island, a working croft with first-rate views, roomy grass tent pitches and good facilities alongside its back-to-basics natural vibe: there are five toilets and five showers (in a smart washroom block opened for the 2021 season) plus a firepit and barbecue area.

Foodwise, a Spar is on the island for picking up groceries, tipples and other essentials, with two hotels, a pub and a tearoom serving up meals and snacks.

Please note

No cars/motorbikes are allowed on the island. All cars must be parked on the mainland.

    Several individual toilet cubicles with showers integrated in them also.

    Kitchen had a few plug sockets for charging as well as toaster, microwave and kettle. Also came with cutlery and kitchenware.

    Plenty of pitches at various heights if you want to watch the sunset. Good hills in between to act as wind blockers

    Great campsite on this beautiful island. Plenty of space, level pitches and a brand new toilet block. Very friendly and helpful owners. The campsite is 10mins walk from a lovely beach with white sand and about 20 minutes to the village shop and pubs.

Beautifully peaceful site with clean and modern facilities03/08/2021

  • Liked: 

    The setting of this site is absolutely beautiful and each pitch is very well set out offering a lot of shelter and privacy from other campers.
    The facilities are probably some of the best we’ve had, a stand-alone toilet and shower block with individual cubicals is modern and kept extremely clean. Same goes with the kitchen/ dishwashing area.
    Note to future campers, pack light, we seriously over packed and hadn’t compensated for the walk from the ferry port to the campsite itself. This is absolutely not a criticism of the Iona Campsite itself, everyone should experience this beautiful place... just without breaking your back getting there!

    Disliked: 

    Lights on the toilet block on all night unable to appreciate the night sky . Queues for the toilet block could be waiting 20 mins while someone showers needs just a loo somewhere. Hooks in the shower to hang towels up would be great or a shelf and provide a mop so campers can clean the floors after themselves. Disliked showering then walking on messy grassy floors. Clearer rules, saw people using camping gas stoves inside the kitchen area I’m sure this is against fire regulations.

    It's more than 20 minutes walk from the ferry terminal, you feel hopeless if you need to carry all the stuff. No Internet connection.

    The welcome and hospitality was fabulous! I have tent camped for many years and this was the best experience I have ever had. The camping grounds and the shower/toilet facilities were well kept. The pitches were level with a wonderful cover of grass which made for enjoyable sleeping. Definitely will camp there again! Many thanks to Glen!

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Take to your toes or hire a bike for a trip around Iona to see its well-known sights: Dun I, the highest point on Iona; Iona Abbey, founded by St Columba in the sixth century and used as a monastery until the Reformation; the medieval nunnery; stone Celtic crosses, and the burial monuments of kings including Mac Beth. The heritage centre on the island is open from between the end of March and end of October for info on Iona history.

Iona has several gorgeous beaches on the island for sunbathing, rockpooling and spotting local otters and seabirds: the sheltered cove of Port Bàn; the North End beaches with their dunes and views across to Mull and Staffa, and St Columba’s Bay, where Columba is said to have landed from Ireland (and which is also known for its glittering green stones ‘Mermaid’s Tears’). Or tee off with a difference at Iona’s golf club with beachside views and a bull wandering around the vegetation of the ninth hole.

Island hopping? Boat trips to other local islands such as Staffa and Lunga can be booked back at Fionnphort, or make for Mull for the day to sample single malt whisky from Tobermory, catch a glimpse of a white-tailed or golden eagle, or explore part of its 300 miles of coast.

Catch a ferry from Craignore port on Mull to Oban, home of another distillery and with ferry access to Coll, Tiree, Lismore, Barra and South Uist.
