Campsites and Hostels

Welcome to the Orkney Islands Council Campsites and Hostels web pages.

There are two campsites and three hostels operated by Orkney Islands Council which offer great value for money and are well maintained.

The Hoy Centre and Rackwick Hostel are both located on the island of Hoy and the Birsay Hostel and Campsite is located on the mainland of Orkney with Point of Ness Campsite located in Stromness. Hostels welcome singles, groups and families with exclusive room or hostel hire. Orkney Islands Council operates a strict no smoking policy in all our hostels. Both campsites are suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes with toilets, showers and washing facilities.

Further information on each of the facilities is available from the relevant pages.
