Caravans & Camping
Is it possible to book a pitch for my Caravan / Tent?
Unforntunately at this time it is not possible to book your Caravan or Camping pitch ahead of arrival. The site has a lot of space, and it is rare that you will be turned away, this is especially true for Camping with Tents!
What if I turn up with my Caravan and all 4 Caravan Pitches are already in use?
Our Caravan Pitches include Electric Hookup and Water, however if you arrive and all Caravan Pitches are in-use, you are welcome to park elsewhere on Outdoor Centre's spacious site without hook up and simply pay the tent price!
Can I hire a Caravan / Camping Equipment from the Centre?
We do not supply any Caravans or Camping equipment for rent. However, a quick google search will display some of the several businesses in Shetland that hire Caravans and sell Camping equipment!
What facilities are available?
A full list of facilities available to all guests is displayed on the Caravans & Camping page.
Do you have electrical hookups for tents?
There are only electrical hook ups for 4 Caravans - the camping area for tents is too far from these hook ups.
Can I visit Bridge End by boat?
Yes! Bridge End Outdoor Centre is also home to a well equipped Marina with Visitor Berths. More info can be found on the Marina page.
Can I hire a Sea Kayak / water sports equipment from the Centre?
We do not supply any equipment for hire. However, a quick google search will display some of the several businesses in Shetland that do!
