We stayed in the campsite hostel for several days, which was extremely good value for money. Location is on a grassy point overlooking a tiny bay, with wonderful cliff walks straight out of the site. The owners, Paul & Julie, could not have been more friendly & helpful. Almost everywhere on Sanday is isolated, but there's a small shop within 10 mins walk & Paul offers a taxi service, which we used, as we hadn't brought a car. Highly recommended for eating out is nearby Backaskaill B&B - booking essential, only 10 seats.
