Michael and Teenie Harcus would like to welcome you to their family run campsite in Westray, Orkney - Queen of the isles. Originally a working farm belonging to Michael's family, Chalmersquoy now concentrates on offering good accommodation and a friendly welcome. The campsite is two paddocks to the rear of the original farm buildings and sheltered by earth banks. New for 2016 are 12 hardstanding pitches, along with 16 electric hook-ups, showers, toilets, laundry, drying room and a fully equipped kitchen with hob, microwave and fridge. Michael and Teenie have a large facility for storage so can offer their guests storage for larger items like bikes, motorbikes, kayaks, surfboards etc. The campsite welcomes tents, caravans and motor homes.

If you enjoy some live local music than plan your visit over a Tuesday night during the months of June, July and August. Michael and Teenie organise a concert each Tuesday night with various musicians and singers taking part ... including their own "Harcus family" in four part harmony. The concerts are followed by supper and lots of Westray homebakes.

Nearby Attractions

Situated on the edge of Pierowall Village, the campsite is a short walk away from all the local amenities. In the village you will find two amazingly well stocked shops (selling fresh local bread), a hotel which offers good homemade food, a heritage centre, a fantastic fish merchant (with an added bonus of fish and chips on Wednesdays and Saturdays), a swimming pool, a fitness centre, a cafe, children's play park and local craft shops.

Other local attractions are not far away. The beaches and coastline are well worth a wander not forgetting Noup Head cliffs and bird reserve, Noltland Castle and the Castle o'Burrian where the puffins are in plentiful supply.

Round of your afternoon with a coffee at the Wheeling Steen Gallery and you will be relaxed and in full holiday mode in no time.


Orkney Ferries will take you to Rapness Pier at the south of the island. It is 7 miles from the campsite and village. Follow signs for Pierowall or catch the local bus which meets every ferry in the summer months.

Chalmersquoy Campsite is situated at the south of Pierowall Village and is well signposted.

Also at Chalmersquoy is "The Barn" hostel and self catering facilities so watch for signs for "The Barn" too.
