“Centrally located, well run.”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

The amenities block has excellent facilities and is well looked after. The grounds are cared for and well laid out. Very handy with the leisure centre and supermarkets. A busy site so would advise pre booking.

Stayed August 2013, travelled with family

Clean, well run, efficient, convenient for the centre of Kirkwall and for driving off in all directions. Good flat pitches. Good lounge and kitchen, great showers, next to pool and cinema. Highly recommended.

Reviewed 19 July 2013

Stayed at the campsite in a tent for 2 weeks (biked there). The campsite isn't very interesting - really just a big field for the most part, with a few trees and overlooked by the leisure centre - but it is ideally located in Kirkwall, with grocery stores nearby and the town just a short walk away.

The amenities at the site are great, with a "campers kitchen" (microwave, small freezer, kettle, and sinks), lounge, and shower rooms (that include a sink and toilet..plus there are rooms without the showers).

The wardens that were there (aren't there any longer unfortunately) were extremely friendly. Staff are the leisure centre are good, but it isn't the same as having a full-time warden to look after the place (which would be a huge concern if we go back as there is the potential for rowdiness, like at any other campsite).

The ferry for many of the other islands are based right in town and busses are available for people to explore the rest of the island (as well as to get you to ferries to see Hoy and Rousay).
