Stayed here for 3 nights and can't recommend this site enough. The toilet and washing facilities are second to none and access to an indoor kitchen for washing up with free use of a kettle and microwave is a real bonus if you are in a small tent. The wardens we met were both very helpful and friendly and the site is a credit to their hard work and dedication. The nearby Palace stores is a good local village store and 10 minutes down the road at Dounby the Co-op covers most other things along with a very nice butchers and probably the cheapest fuel on the islands. The site looks out over the Brough of Birsay and most of the other historical sites are within easy driving distance and some great coastal scenery at Yesnaby and around the Kitchener memorial.

Great site look forward to coming back.

We arrived very late off the ferry at Kirkwall -23. 00-but we still managed to find this site as it's right beside the community centre. We choose to picth our tent up at the back beside the wall as it was very very windy. A flat site easy to pitch the tent and a water tap nearby We stayed here for 5 nights and found the facilities clean and well maintained. The friendly warden is available every day. No charge for showers or washing machine or tumble dryer ! ( that's a first). The campers kitchen is a small area however there is a large room behind this with table chairs etc to eat in and relax. You will also find lots of information of what to see and do, Adjoining hostel rooms are beside this. Brough of Birsey is worth a visit just make sure you know the Tide times, Nearby village has a Co op & There is a great Craft Trail around Orkney and we visited all around the mainland seeing many amazing history sites, too many to mention, but so worth it. We where on honeymoon and would recommend this site, the only downside was the constant wind, but a good base to travel from and lovely sunsets at night

Fantastic campsite. Peace and quiet the birds, the sea and the wind. Facilities 10 out of 10

Very friendly and accommodating

Will visit again sometime. Lots of things to do if you liked nature and the out doors.

Beautifully kept grounds. No hassle on leaving day just go when you are ready

Only one negative point ( my husbands nag) only one washing up sink so a bit of a queue sometime. Personally I don't care my husband washes up not me

Lovely peaceful wee site. Toilets and showers are spotless. There is a campers kitchen with the use of a microwave. Opposite there is a drying room where you can dry your wet clothes. Campers can use the washing machine and tumble dryer for free.

The toilets are nice and toasty, nice when you come out the shower.

Nice walk to Birsay bay and town.

Beautiful views from the site, some stunning sunsets while we were there.

Stayed here in july for one night and site is lovely and peacefully. You just pitch up and the warden is on site in the evening. Shower and toilet facilities are 1st class also there is free washing and dryer yes free when have you ever had that on a site. Small town is near by for a evening walk enjoyed stay and would return

Another ten days spent at Birsay. Weather not so kind this time in common with the rest of the country, but the excellent facilities meant you could get everything dry overnight. Lorraine and Sue the wardens work very hard to maintain the standards here and deserve credit for their hard work. Excellent value and a location with sunsets that are unbelievable when the weather allows. Recommended.
