Whether you are bringing a campervan or tent, Stronsay has a variety of places suitable for camping. There are no established camping areas in the island, but often, those with camper vans choose to stay in designated parking areas. Public toilets are open 24/7 at the community centre (see map), which makes it a convenient spot (the views are great too!). If you find a place you’d like to tent camp and it’s not a public space, please try to gain permission from the land owner. If you’re not sure who that is, you can always ask in one of the shops or knock on a door to find out. You can find showers and laundry facilities at the Fish Mart. Please do not leave any trace of your stay behind (take all rubbish etc. with you), and please do not park in front of gates, drives or tracks.
Other Places to Shelter or Find a Hot Drink
Need a place to get out of the weather? Find yourself a good distance from the village and in need of a hot drink? The Heritage Centre is open through the day and offers a self-service tea and coffee facility. During summer months, Airy Fairy provides a self-service cuppa counter for island and studio visitors. Please feel free to fill up your travel mugs or make a cuppa from the selection of drinks provided. Assorted biscuits are also available. There’s no charge, but donations are welcome. Seating is available outside for anyone who’d like to enjoy a break with their cuppa.
