General

  • Working croft on a tiny car-free island
  • Firepit and barbecue area
  • Several spectacular beaches 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, 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 three toilets, two showers and 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.

  • Liked: 

    The area was clean and tidy with a built up barbeque area.
    The showers are hot water and not warm with ample room to change and wash.
    Toilets and wash basin.
    A separate space was provided for warming through food in the microwave, sink and workspace, electric sockets and crockery if needed was provided along with a table and chairs and a small sofa.

    Disliked: 

    The only downfall I saw was the booking system showed up the campsite was full so I was unable to book for longer when I arrived the campsite was empty.

I would definitely recommend a stay here. 08/12/2018

    Iona is a beautiful little island steeps in Christianity history and also scenic coastline.
    At the campsite i was met by Zoe who was very friendly and welcoming. The field is perfect for pitching tents. Nicely close mowed green and flat all around. Toilet blocks are usual basic campsite standards but certainly clean and all I needed for freshen up shower.

    It was quite while I was there which meant open choice for pitching. There is plenty of space and option to pitch up high or low if you choose.
    Sadly it was a short visit of only one night due to my time schedule. I could have stayed there all week.
    I will certainly be returning to Iona camp site for a longer duration.

    Disliked: 

    I haven't got any dislike. It was a little further from the harbour than I thought but not by a great deal. It took me a short while to get my bearings on the location but again this was no big deal.

Excellent site, easy to find and great location. 08/11/2018

  • Liked: 

    Indoor and outdoor kitchen/cleaning area. Setting is amazing. We liked “pride rock”. Close to beach on West side (which fewer people go to). Easy to find. Low cost. Friendly people. Tent and bag hire so consider doing this and saving yourself a walk up a fairly steep hill!

    Disliked: 

    One shower didn’t work (but probably just over used), and there was no soap in the bathrooms, but we had brought our own!

    Kitchen area could be larger. More picnic tables, even quite small ones at more sites would be nice.

Super site on idyllic Scottish island! 08/11/2018

  • Liked: 

    The owners were really friendly and helpful.

    The campsite is in good location to explore nearby beaches and not too far from Baile Mòr (about 10-15 min walk).

    The site grounds were nice with plenty of good pitches, clean toilets and some cool rocky outcrops the kids enjoyed climbing.

  • Liked: 

    very natural place; can choose your own spot - there are lots of sheltered spots hidden from other tents so it feels quiet and private; great views; easygoing - can move the tables/benches to where you want; there's a little living room with kettle, fridge, microwave and other useful things which would be great in bad weather.

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 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.

Cycle routes

Find local routes on the National Cycle Network - over 12,000 miles of cycling routes.
