The drop's now fenced off ( postmans earlier review) so totally safe.
Heated lounge to chill in 24/7. A microwave and kettle free to use. 20p coin operated washer and dryer. USB charge and 3 pin in the lounge. People.just left their batteries etc onnchatge and went off for the day. No tea leaves here.
If on public transport it's a 10 minute walk to the travel depot in Stromness. The walk's through the narrow streets past the shops, cars use the road at a slow pace. Theres a Chinese chippy at half way. :)
The views are stunning. Across the water a short way Hoy looms large. The giant ferry sails by your tent. Orcas passed within plain view on my first day, then porpoises.
The site's at the end of a road so no through traffic. Being on the point though it gets windy. Theres a sea breeze cooling things a little.
Super helpful staff and very well placed to take in the show sites and lots of the beaten track.
Highly recommended, glad I chose it over the Kirkwall site which is 2 minutes walk from a large tesco!

Run by very nice people, a simple campsite with good shower units, but no hot food.
Very close to Maes Howe ,Brodgar etc
Good views over to Hoy ,right next to Ferry terminal
The one draw back was the sheer drop into the harbour, keep small children close
