Brilliant CL

We have just recently spent a week at the CL for the second year in a row. The site is set out really well with quality facilities. The owners are really pleasant but not intrusive. The sunsets are amazing and all five pitches have great views of the sea and islands. Orkney itself is amazing and a must do trip. We have been many years and never run out of places to visit and walks to do.

Perfect CL

Received a warm friendly welcome from the owners and told to choose any pitch. The pitches are all hard standing with EHU and the fresh water tap was easy accessible for our motorhome just across from the pitches. We stayed at this site after visiting Skara Brae and the Kirbuster Farm museum. There are lots of other things to see in the area.I can imagine this site has amazing views but unfortunately we had rain & mist the day we stayed. If we return to Orkney (which I know we will) we would definitely stay here again.

Great CL

The site is well laid out with good hardstandings.. Whilst quite exposed it has amazing views and we saw some stunning sunsets. The owners gave us a warm welcome and were very helpful when we had a problem with our caravan. We loved our stay at Stonehigh and would highly recommend it to those who love peace, quiet and Orkney!

Great Base for Exploring Orkney

We stayed at Stonehigh for 12 days in September and found it a great base for exploring Orkney.

The site is easily accessed from either St Margaret's Hope or Stromness ferry terminals.

The Co-op in Dounby was about 5 miles away and was well stocked. For Sunday papers, give them a ring to see if they're in before setting off - papers may not be delivered until 1:00pm. Bigger Tesco & Lidl stores were available in Kirkwall. Orkney Fish (seafood suppliers) on a small retail development outside Stromness was a work a visit.

We used the Orkney Explorer pass to get to the main historic sites, but in addition to these, the upper level tour of St Magnus' Cathedral was a must!

The Merkister Hotel outside Dounby was a good place to eat and for great seafood and views over the Pentland Firth, try the Skerries Bistro near Burwick on South Ronaldsay (drive over the Churchill Barriers to get there). For fish and chips head to the Harbour Fry near Kirkwall harbour.

We used Orkney Ferries to get to the islands (they'll reverse you on if you don't fancy doing it yourself) and Northlink to get back (roll on / roll off).

All in all a great holiday and a place, unlike any other, that we were sorry to leave.

Beautiful views

OMG the views are to die for. this site is a real find, Jim was very welcoming helpful, there is a book box available to all guests. although a working farm the access is easy and the site very well kept and maintained. Orkney is a stunning place to visit and as bird watchers, basically heaven on earth. we did manage to see the short eared owls and many birds were visible at the site. for us the winds were dreadful, I think we had the tail end of Hector!, but then that is not Jim's fault, the days were mainly sunny and dry just very windy. I would definitely recommend this site and would visit again, we stayed a week and loved every minute
