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.

Hostels welcome singles, groups and families with exclusive room or hostel hire. Campsites are suitable for tents, caravans and motorhomes, with toilets, showers and washing facilities.

Availability, bookings and further information on each of the facilities can be accessed from the 'More pages in this section' menu.

We would encourage members of the public to use the online booking system as telephone and email bookings will incur an additional admin charge.
