Stromness - Point of Ness Campsite

The Point of Ness Campsite is situated on the scenic shoreline overlooking the town of Stromness, and with dramatic views of hills of Hoy.

The 3 star campsite provides an idyllic and peaceful location just a few minutes’ walk from the town centre and ferry terminal. Suitable for touring caravans, motor homes and tents, with level hard standing and grass pitches with electric and modern toilet and showering facilities which were upgraded in 2022.

Stromness is a small picturesque town built on the lower slopes of a granite hillside. Many houses are built into the side of the hill and others are built on stone piers. The narrow main street twists charmingly along the shoreline.

“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.
