Totally agree with previous reviews, this is a great friendly little site. Although is on the main road there is next to no traffic noise by early evening.

We arrived to find 4 out of 5 pitches taken by early afternoon - its a very popular site with some pitches booked in advance by telephone. Showers / loos old but functional, very clean and 50p for 3 minutes shower.

A short walk downhill from site is Midway Stores, they seemed to stock a bit of everything you could think of. Walk further down and a lovely little beach (although its a hike back up to the campsite).

Pitches are generous enough for campervans / motorhomes, for a caravan you park the car in the car-park next to the hall. Tentttt area is down a small slope to which it seems you can take your car.

Lovely little site, well run by community from whom someone calls to collect your fee each evening - £19 including electric or £16 without electric.

Site is next to the Community centre (the old school) and run by volunteers to suport the centre. There are 5 hard standing pitches with EHUs and a sheltered field below for tents. All the fees go towards the upkeep of the centre.

It must be one of the friendliest sites of all time and John who is the volunteer who collects the money is so knowledgable about the local area.

You use the toilets and showers of the centre and there is a comfortable kitchen/sitting room for campers with washing machine and tumble drier.

There are ambitious plans to build new toilet and shower facilities and I have no doubt that with the drive of this community they will happen.

You need 20p or 50p for the showers and £1 coins for the laundry.

The views, when the haar lifts, are breathtaking.

Its situation makes it ideal to explore the south of Shetland, Sumburgh Head, St Ninians and Lerwick is not that far away in the other direction.

There is a farm shop with excellent cafe a couple of miles away.

A welcoming site which is a credit to the community who run it.

Lovely community site run by volunteers. This is next door to the village hall so if you're lucky, as I was, you might get invited to watch the children's band practice - they were amazing! Mr Sinclair is so friendly and helpful and calls every evening at about 7. 30 to collect money and chat. (Or there's an honesty box if you're not around then, Shetland is the most honest place ever!)

Lovely warm kitchen with tables for campers to gather and eat or just while away the evening, with dvds to watch and books to read. Ehu, 2 showers (20p) and nice clean loos. Really convenient for the South Mainland area, where there is just so much to see and do.

Worth popping down to Levenwick beach which is lovely, sheltered with some very curious seals. I wish I could've stayed longer - next time! Only gripe is the one I experience everywhere - I just wish there was a more tiered price system, I'm only one granny in a little camper, yet I pay the same as a family of 10 would in a huge van.

However, in this case the money goes back to the community so I don't begrudge it too much! I'll definitely be back to Levenwick though. Thank you.

The site is in a good location for exploring the southern mainland (Jarlshof, Mousa etc. ) and the view towards the sea is very pleasant. We were able to book in advance by phone and the warden was very friendly.

The facilities are attached to the community centre and are fine. There is a roomy kitchen area with tables and chairs. Bring several 20p pieces for the shower as you only get a few minutes for 20p!

What's not to like about this site?

It sits just off the main road between Lerwick and Sumburgh

It has marvellous views(when the mist isn't down) out to sea and to the beach where we saw Red Throated Divers.

The facilities are good, especially considering that it only costs £12/night for a van with hookup.

Support from the volunteer members of the Community group is first rate. John Sinclair was always friendly & helpful.

It's well located for buses and only a few minutes from a shop.

It's also well located for some of Shetland's remarkable sights - the night visit to Mousa Brochure for the Storm Petrels return is quite life affirming. Jarlshof and Bigton/St Ninian's Island were memorable too.

We have just returned from a weekend visit to Levenwick Campsite, on a fine day it commands stunning views of the area and a short car drive away we spent 4 hours of glorious sunshine at Levenwick beach.

We had a very large tunnel style family tent which cost £8 per night plus £2 for electric hook up, the money was collected between 7 and 8pm each evening by a very friendly warden. I liked this campsite due to the separate toilets and shower from the main kitchen. Which meant you had more privacy and didn't continually bump into other campers if you didn't want to, although we did meet some very nice people camping here from england and italy.

The main area has a kitchen with an industrial nyborg washing machine and a tumble dryer in addition to another newer shower and a great seating area to take in the view which was lovely.

Its raised location means it can be exposed to the elements, however we did tuck in close to one of the hills for shelter, our tent took a fair amount of wind the second night but we were all snug inside. I will return next year and had a great weekend with my family.

It was pouring with rain, low cloud so we could not see a lot. We pulled onto what was a village hall with a car park as the hard standings. It had the toilets in the hall, a small building at the side with nice shower, tables and chairs, washing machine and dryer that were NOT a rip off, and the clothes were dry!

A lovely garden and tenters field. And when the cloud went WOW what a view. A lovely man came to collect the fees. This was a comfortable site and we enjoyed our stay.

From here visit the puffins at sumburgh head and the bigton tombolo. A site you will never forget.

Excellent, community-run site, ideally located for exploring the south of the Mainland. We stayed in early June 2012 with our three-man tent. Site can be a bit exposed - we had strong northerly winds - but has excellent views.

Two showers, one taking 50p coins and one taking 20p coins. Showers and toilets very clean. I only used the older, 50p shower, but it gives at least 10 minutes for the 50p, and it's nice and hot (although electric, so not very powerful).

New-ish (5 years old) indoor kitchen area with sink, microwave, kettle, washing machine and drier, and access to the second shower. Three tables in this room, perfect for campers to use - especially as the room is warm and with excellent views! Site also has a small garden area which we used to BBQ. Very friendly and knowledgeable warden.

No recycling facilities, but these can be found just a few miles down the road towards Sumburgh.

All proceeds from the site go towards funds for the community hall - they were installing insulation for the first time ever when we visited, paid for over the years by site fees.

June is quiet for them - just three other tents and two campers during our stay.

This site is well recommended.

Local attractions: Loch Spiggie and Mousa (birds), No Ness (walking) the Tombolo at St. Ninians (beach).

A small community run site, with good basic facilities including a large lounge area which would be very useful for tenters in bad weather. Wonderful sea views, and we were told that Orcas have been seen from the site.

Excellent friendly warden.

The turn in off the main road is a bit tight, I found it somewhat awkward in a 5. 5m vehicle. Luckily, being Shetland, the main road is busy if there are two cars in a minute!

If at all possible, in summer you should arrange to go on the night ferry to Mousa to see the Storm Petrels nesting in the broch - one of the great wildlife experiences of the UK.

Great little site. Facilities excellent. The southern end of Shetland has too many places to visit to mention them all but St. Ninians is a safe and beautiful place for families and Boddam museum is very quaint.

Plenty of shops about and a sports centre at Hoswick. Again a well kept site a good example of what a community can achieve when they work together.

Good luck for the future and see you again next year.
