An excellent site with clean facilities and flexible pitching. 05/07/2017

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Alison N. Confirmed

  • Liked: 

    We liked the freedom to pitch anywhere - and change pitch according to wind direction, if necessary taking shelter behind the rocky crags in the field. We also very much appreciated the use of the shared kitchen facilities, which we'll remember for next time as we won't need to bring so much cooking gear/plates etc with us.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing disliked at all.

Brilliant site run by friendly staff in a spectacular location 01/07/2017

    Location was stunning. So peaceful and secluded. Zoe was friendly and we luckily managed to get a hand up to the site with our stuff which was helpful. The little cosy room which had equipment if needed was handy.

    Disliked: 

    The toilet block was adequate for the site.

Great visit and would come back again. 27/06/2017

    Great site with good views of Iona. Very clean campsite with plenty of space to pitch a tent (only 2 others there). Bathroom block was clean and tidy and kitchen was well equipped and good to use out of the rain. Walk to the beach is short with amazing views.

    Disliked: 

    If you have a lot of stuff to take from the ferry you will want a cart. But they do warn you it is a 20 minute walk. Kitchen has only a microwave, no oven or hob but functions fine for a basic place to cook out of the rain.

Great Site. Great Facilities. Great Staff. 👍 25/06/2017

    Spent 2 nights on Iona in June 2017 camping at Iona camp site. Great place. Great site. 10 mins walk to local shops, restaurants and pubs. Made to feel really welcome by the owners and other local islanders too. Facilities were great , plenty of hot water in the showers. The little kitchen barn is a great idea too , just really helpful. We travelled light so we had a really small tent which meant that cooking etc had to be done outside , when it was raining this could have proved really awkward if not for the barn facility. It really did prove very useful so thank you Iona campsite 👍 Use of the fridge was also great too.
    Thanks again.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike...... honestly , I can't think of a single complaint.

Excellent site and location. 21/06/2017

  • Liked: 

    Pitches spaced out, lush grass, sheltered areas, very tidy site and lovely location.
    Good clean showers/toilet block.
    Very useful well equipped kitchen & rest area for escaping to in poor weather.
    Friendly welcome and unobtrusive assistance if needed.
    Quiet location away from main jetty and abbey area.
    Easy access by ferry to get back to car parked in Fionnphort, Mull, if you stay on Iona and want to visit Mull as well.
    Nice not too arduous walking and interesting areas to find.
    Taxi handy if you're loaded up with camping gear and don't fancy the 20 min walk to site.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike about the site. A shame many people only stay one or two nights and don't explore more of the island. Lack of wi-fi a bonus, (can get at bat/restaurant); o2 mobile phone fine generally.

    Great space, well-kept. There's a small shed which has basic kitchen (kettle, sink, microwave) in it. The showers are basic but well maintained. very friendly.

    Disliked: 

    the website doesn't advertise the kitchen facilities so I was unaware of them, and consequently unprepared.

Great wee site with good facilities and friendly staff 03/06/2017

    Friendly staff, good facilities, booked a bag/mat/tent which were high quality and comfortable. You have access to showers, kitchenette with microwave/kettle, place to charge your phone, vending machine for snacks, communal cutlery/plates, picnic benches, fire pit. Glen who runs the site was really helpful, recommended beautiful beaches and places to visit. It was quiet when I stayed (2 other tents only) but had nice chats with those I met and still had lots of privacy. Friendly cat and dogs knocking around too. I had gorgeous weather on my first day so maybe am biased but this stay was perfect. Will be back.

    Fabulous campsite, although no view of the sea, nicely thought out pitches with some shelter from the prevailing wind! Clean toilets and hot shower! Also have great small indoor space with a fridge and kettle etc everything you need if the weather turns wet and cold. Great for dog too as well fenced off from sheep. Only 15 minute walk from the gorgeous beaches on the west side of Iona. I'll definitely be back!
