The Barn hostel/campsite is situated on the edge of Pierowall Village. It is in easy walking distance of the hotel, heritage centre, fish processor (chip shop Wednesday and Saturday nights), craft shops, play park, cafe and local shops.
The Barn, at Chalmersquoy in Westray, is a quality hostel containing twin and family rooms. It has a well equipped kitchen and a great lounge room overlooking Pierowall Bay. This old farm building, with lots of character, was renovated and opened as a hostel in the year 2000. Visitors often say it is "better than a hostel, more like a hotel". Rooms can be rented on a nightly basis and the whole premises can be rented exclusively.
The campsite adjoining is in a great location, just a short walk from Pierowall Village. It has a toilet and shower block and a separate campers kitchen which is a great social area too.
New for 2014 have been the addition of two new self catering units in the old farm houses at Chalmersquoy and it is hoped to add a B&B facility by 2015/16.
