What a little gem! We had pre-booked for two nights prior to our departure back to the mainland and we arrived mid afternoon in the midst of a very thick haar so couldn't see much about us at all. I reversed into my hard standing so that the lounge was facing out to sea though I didn't really expect the haar to lift. After about an hour the sun started to burn through and within minutes we were basking in the hot sun. What a view from there, being elevated we could see for miles and the sunsets were beautiful. This is a cracker of a site, perfect for getting away from it all. Very tidy and eco friendly too. There are no showers and only one unisex loo a short walk away through the site owners front garden. The loo itself may be old fashioned but it was spotlessly clean. There was an adjacent field accessible from the site for the dogs to run around in and the local lanes are quiet enough for dog walking. We will definitely return there.

Stayed for 5 nights. Quiet Location. Near St Margaret Hope ferry terminal on Ronaldsay.

Well maintained site. Excellent Views. Owners helpful and friendly. Electric Hookup. Water/waste close by.

Toilet is clean but a short walk from the site. The owners also have a small marine life aquarium.

Archeology on main island of Orkney was fascinating, as was site at lower end of Ronaldsay just discovered in the car park of the stunning Skerries Bistro or 'BanksofOrkney' - Gourmet food at very reasonable prices (you are advised to book if you want an evening meal).

The site is very quiet, with beautiful views. The owners run the Orkney Marine-Life Aquarium, which was a big hit with the kids. There is a toilet round beside the aquarium which can be used by the campers. The aquarium has a separate road in and car park, so we were not disturbed by the visitors at all.

There were electric hookups, a bin and fresh water on the site. The owner was very friendly and even brought us fresh eggs one morning.

The site is only a few minutes from the Pentland Ferry Terminal at St Margaret's Hope. We stayed for 4 nights, but wished it had been longer.

The Tomb of the Eagles at the south end of South Ronaldsay is very interesting and well worth a visit. There are also plenty of small white sandy beaches nearby, usually with no-one else on them.
