 One of the most memorable stays we've had on our travels. The site is within the pub car park, with hook ups and shower/toilets nearby. We had a great view

over the loch, and best of all, the pub was just a few steps away. We have yet to meet such a friendly and inclusive bunch of people. Ian, the owner, made us so welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. We spent 2 evenings socialising with the Whalsay locals and we felt like part of the community by the time we had to leave. I won't forget the evening sitting with a group of these new friends, watching the mist roll in from the loch. Magic!

Make sure you visit when the pub is open at the weekend. It is also very well placed to explore Whalsay. The only regret were that we couldn't stay longer and that we didn't manage to spot any Or as.

 This isn't really a site as such, just the carpark (a little scruffy) of the pub/restaurant. Nice friendly owner and the hostelry is only open certain nights, however I wouldn't stay when it's open as I imagine it could be noisy with cars arriving and departing. Only one pitch has a view as the fence around the carpark is high, presumably to protect from winds. EHU and one loo/shower/washbasin all in one room so difficult if there are several staying but presumably you could use the pub when it's open. Nice and clean though. Not sure how visitors without own washing up facilities etc would manage as there didn't seem to be a washup area. Pretty freshwater loch opposite which apparently has otters, and some lovely places to walk.

 A small site at the islands only pub which also has a small restaurant serving excellent home cooked food. (Booking for evening meals was essential while we were there). The pub which looks more like a modern bungalow was built about five years ago and is open until 1am every night. Staff were friendly and helpful but some seemed to be summer staff and to know very little about the area.
All the facilities are in the pub and are clean and modern.
The site has four hook ups and a small area for tents which is quite exposed.
Whalsay is a is just a 25 min ferry ride from the mainland and is well worth the visit if just to see the dolphins riding the ferry's bow wave. It also has Britain's most northerly golf course where many come just to play golf at midnight in Shetlands 24 hour summer light. The island seemed more populated than most of the Shetlands with less opportunities for wild camping which probably accounts for the popularity of this campsite.
