The Point of Ness Campsite in Stromness is open for the season.
Located on the outskirts of Stromness the council run camp site has outstanding views towards the town and over to Hoy.
Work will start in May creating hard-standings in the shoreside area for the parking of caravans and campers, resurfacing to provide vehicle access and improvements to charging points and electrical cabling. Repairs will also be carried out to fencing after it was vandalised in October.
The new standings will allow for the extension of the season.
Councillor Rob Crichton ,Stromness and the South Isles and Chair of the Council’s Education, Leisure and Housing Committee said:
“The Stromness campsite, with its unrivalled views of the town, Scapa Flow and Hoy Sound, is hugely popular and this popularity is only likely to increase further with the advent of RET.
“Visitors to Stromness provide a great energy to our town over the tourist season and it’s important to us that the facilities available to them are fit for purpose. I look forward to this work getting underway.”
The Ness Point Campsite is suitable for touring caravans, motorhomes and tents. Booking is advisable.
