This is a lovely site, close to the beautiful bay and village of Pierowall.
The best part for me was the welcome my dogs and I received from the owners, John and Isabel; they took great trouble in showing me all the facilities, which were excellent, and advising me on practicalities (bank, shops etc) and walks, galleries and eateries (There's a fish shop close by which does take-aways twice a week, and is highly recommended!)
Facilities for the hostel and campsite are separate; the campers' kitchen is excellent, with a fridge, kettle and cooker, and it's roomy enough to sit in if the weather requires.
I especially liked the shower: it's operated by a £1. 00 coin, which is reused by the next person; I'm sure the coin you use will be the same one that was there for me!
This is a lovely site, right on the edge of Pierowall Bay. The facilities include a large 'camper's kitchen' which also has a pool table and plenty of space to sit when the weather is poor. Spotless loos and shower, and an incredibly welcoming host. Camping field was neatly mown and for most of the time we were either the only unit there or had a couple of tents sharing the area with us. There is a regular bus service from the ferry at Rapness to the village and on to Gill Bay for the ferry to Papa Westray so the site is accessible for those who don't have wheels.
The ferry to Westray is a Ro-Ro one and we had no problems taking our 24ft motorhome across to Westray.
