Point of Ness Campsite.

The 3-star Point of Ness campsite is situated on the shoreline overlooking Stromness, one mile west of the pier head and ferry. The site provides dramatic views to the hills of Hoy and is located in a quiet location with a shoreline walk from the site.


“Sadly we only stayed on Orkney for one night, but this site was perfect for us. It was clean, friendly and completely hassle free. Ideally situated for our early morning ferry the next day, and a great base of operations for our short time on the island. Would return and would recommend.” - 5 May 2021.
