The site is well located right on the edge of the sea and level pitches with ehu. Easy to find and the owners helpful etc. When we were there the hostel was very busy so did not try the facilities but all looked fine. A very clean public loo was just next door to the 5 pitches. All in all fine but probably marked it down a bit because the hostel was so busy whilst we were there. Should not stop you going there though!

We stayed one night [in May 2013] at this super new caravan/motorhome facility that is part of the hostel. The 5 hardstanding pitches are all block paved with gravel between them and are no more than 3 metres away from the shoreline. Great views over Uyea Sound. Electric hook up and water is available at the back of each pitch. The shower & toilet facilities are what you would expect from a hostel. The main social meeting place appeared to be the kitchen where we met some women cycling to the most northern part of UK.

We stopped over night here prior to heading up to Hermaness for a foggy clifftop walk and then onto Foords Chocolate factory at Saxavord for afternoon tea and for the dogs to have their photos taken for their Canine Visitors gallery! The Valhalla Brewery is also close by.

A nice youth hostel which has camping in its grounds. The facilities are in the hostel which is very clean and very weathertight.

Hard standing and electric hook ups for motor homes are at the lower edge of the site, easily accessible from the road and facing the waters edge.

Tents are on the open grass area and exposed to the wind except for an area to the east of the main building which is totally surrounded by hedges.

The area has little in the way of shops so take a few supplies.

No facilities for children, but every opportunity for them to have fun if they enjoy fields, streams, beaches and wildlife. For those that require constant electronic stimulation may I suggest that Shetland is not the best choice.

Very enjoyable stay, will go back one day.

Thoroughly recommended!
