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.

    Lovely setting with friendly owners. Great new facilities - toilets, showers and kitchen. Communal fire space (but just us there). No wifi, just so you know.

    Disliked: 

    Not masses of shelter from the wind, but not much they can do about that! Nothing else to dislike.

    Ideal location, with amazing panoramic views and good pitches.
    It was fairly quiet when we stayed here, so I am not sure how this set-up would work when the site gets busier at peak times, but it was nice to have private showers and toilets, rather than a shower/toilet block. Facilities were always kept very clean and staff were accommodating.

    Disliked: 

    It was lovely to have a kitchen space, and it seemed as though there was space left for future kitchen appliances, but a fridge would be ideal.

    We don't have anything bad to say about this this campsite. First of all, it's in Iona; one of the most beautiful islands. The campsite area is facing stunning views, you can either pitch your tent down the slope or up for an amazing view of the nearby beaches. It's so peaceful there that made you just wanted to stay and never leave. The facilities are amazing too. We never thought the shower/toilet would be that clean and proper. And there's a kitchen that's complete with a microwave and kettle. The nearby beautiful beaches are just within few minutes walking. What more do we want? It's just amazing. Ohand Glen, the pic, and everyone on the island is so nice and friendly. Even the dogs! We felt so welcome.

    Everything! Zoe was a fab host. Site was amazing - very, very high standard facilities, plenty of room to spread out and amazing views. I’ve stayed at sites that don’t come close and paid three times more! Zoe even save my bacon when I realised that I’d forgotten to print my Oban ferry ticket (and they don’t accept mobile phone scanning)

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.
