The Pickaquoy Centre

Their cafe is brilliant. The staff are wonderful. Most of the time it is a spacious and quiet place to enjoy a coffee. Saturdays are usually busy though. The food there is great. The salads in a tortilla basket are certainly worth a try but in my mind the full breakfast is the best in Orkney, and it's a fantastic deal. The exercise facilities, climbing wall, pool, racket Sports, and various exercise classes are all top notch and it is a great place to get fit or hang out at the health suite. I'm probably biased because I spend loads of time here but it's a fantastic place.

Regular user of pool/heath suite, ocassional cinema user, ocassional user of other facilities, used cafe once or twice. Staff generally helpful. Pool clean, changing rooms cleaner than lots I've seen. Family friendly. Adequate parking though gets busy if big event on. Good location.

Kirkwall Swimming Pool

Pickaquoy Center, Muddisdale Rd, Kirkwall KW15 1LR, UK – 01856 879900

A great facility with good access for those with disabilities. Only let down by lack of ceiling hoist in changing area (which Shetland have). With a specialist lift to get wheelchair users into the pool, the lack of a hoist in the changing area seems a huge over sight. There's a great children's pool and play area but also frequent lane swimming sessions if like me you like to swim lanes.

A great facility - we came on holiday with our 2 year old and this was a perfect place. Good kids pool, soft play and the even had bouncy castles in the sports hall one day.
