Port Mòr campsite sits nestled by the sea close to Port Charlotte on the stunning Isle of Islay. Whether you are looking for a tranquil getaway or wish to explore Argyll, Bute and the Islands our campsite is the perfect choice for all.
Port Mòr welcomes tents, caravans and camper vans. We also allow awnings but the space provided for them is limited. The Centre itself has a wide range of facilities for campers such as toilets (including disabled toilets/showers), showers, laundry, a café and free internet access. Fourteen electrical hook ups are available at £3 per night. There are two fresh water stand pipes situated next to our hard standing pitches. The charge for using the campsite is £8.00 per person per night or £4.00 for children up to 12 years old. Children up to 5yrs old are free. Payment is by cheque or cash only. The campsite is also dog friendly at no extra charge.
The Port Mòr Centre is located close to Port Charlotte, where the Port Charlotte Hotel and the Lochindaal Hotel are located. Both hotels feature a bar and serve meals made with local produce. Amenities also include a Post Office with a shop, a Wildlife Centre and the Museum of Islay Life, all of which are an easy 10 minutes walk from the campsite.
There are many interesting historical and archaeological sites on Islay to visit. Kildalton Church and the famous Kildalton Cross (the best preserved high cross in Scotland) both date back to around 800 A.D. Finlaggan, the administrative capital of the Lord of the Isles from the 12th to the 16th century, has a visitor centre which houses a number of archaeological finds and a model of how the site would have looked during its heyday.
Islay is also a haven for birdwatchers and has a remarkable reputation for unusual birds. The RSPB Scotland Visitor Centre at Loch Gruinart delivers a fascinating glimpse into the bird life there and has closed circuit television providing close up coverage. The Islay Natural History Trust in Port Charlotte is also well worth a visit.
