Camping and Caravaning

Orkney Caravan Park at The Pickaquoy Centre

Peerie Sea Loan, Kirkwall KW15 1UH, UK – 01856 879900

Really good camp site. Staff are friendly and on duty 8am till 8pm, certainly during the summer months. Very good facilities which are kept clean throughout the day. Close to Kirkwall town centre and ferry piers. Can be busy during summer, but without feeling over crowded. Campers with cars are kept separate from camper vans and campers without cars have their own designated space. The site is in a town setting with the attendant advantages/disadvantages. I think it deserves a 5* rating.

An excellent base for your travels around Orkney. The site is within walking distance of Kirkwall and is linked to a leisure centre & pool, with activities for adults and children alike. The facilities on site are great. The reception block has individual shower & toilet cubicles, a lounge for resting & maybe recharging, a kitchen with a kettle, microwave & fridge for campers travelling light & a laundry room. The staff are friendly & helpful. Brilliant!
