Full of sweeping bays and white sandy beaches, this peaceful island is perfect for experiencing the great outdoors.
The largest of Orkneys north isles, Sanday has a land and seascape more akin to the Outer Hebrides, with beautiful beaches, sand dunes and machair, all set at the fringes of some of Orkneys most fertile farmland.
We opened our dedicated Motorhome Aire in 2021 and new for 2022, our pop-up campsite is now open too. We have hard standing for five motorhomes along with black and grey waste emptying facilities, a fresh water filling point and five electric hook-ups. Our 4 acre field gives plenty of space for up to 10 tent pitches too. Our brand new luxury family bathroom is now open, with shower, loo and basin for use by campers, campervans and motorhomes.
Our stunning location has panoramic views out to sea on three sides, looking out to Eday, Rousay, Egilsay, Westray, Papa Westray, North Ronaldsay & Mainland Orkney and we are just a 500m walk to the beach at Roos Wick bay.
We only cater for fully self-contained motorhomes who are looking for a dedicated motorhome overnight stop. We do not have any toilet or shower facilities and we are not a camp site.
We allow motorhomes of all sizes, although due to the size of our island roads, any vans over 8m will struggle to access the beaches, beauty spots and other island facilities.
The island is a nature enthusiasts dream, with wonderful wildlife-spotting opportunities and a seemingly never-ending selection of walks to enjoy. But there's a strong community here too, full of farmers and crafters and a busy events calendar.
The beaches in Sanday are too numerous to mention, but you wont be disappointed with visits to Whitemill Bay, the dunes at Trensess, Lopness Bay, Otterswick Bay, Backaskaill Bay or the hidden beach - complete with caves at low tide - at Doun Helzie.
There is a rich natural habitat here and the island is home to many breeds of birds and animals. Otters frequent the ferry terminal at Loth and seals are an almost permanent fixture around the beaches. Expect to see plenty of lapwings, curlews and oystercatchers too.
Sanday also has some of the finest archaeological sites in Orkney, although many are long since excavated. The island has a history stretching as far back as the Neolithic, and Quoyness Chambered Cairn is one of the best examples of its kind to be found anywhere. With an entrance passage, central chamber and side cells, its 4000-year-old interior resembles Maeshowe.
Sanday stretches for around 16 miles from end to end, meaning that the many farms, crofts and homes are well spread out, but there are two slightly larger settlements that host most of the islands amenities. Kettletoft has two pubs and a post office, whilst the village at Lady has the community shop and the fantastic heritage centre, which features informative displays and information on Sandays history.
Nearby you'll also find the restored Old Croft House, providing a glimpse into island life in years gone past, and the Meur Burnt Mound. This Bronze Age site was painstakingly moved from a beach in the islands north end to save it from the sea, then reconstructed next to the heritage centre.
