Owned by the local community, this is Papa Westray's hub. It has the only shop, and functions as a makeshift pub on Saturday nights. One wing is a hostel with bunks, the other a guesthouse with immaculate rooms with en suites. There are two kitchens, zippy wi-fi (when it works), a big lounge/eating area and views over grassy fields to the sea beyond.
It’s just over a mile north of the ferry. You can also camp here (£8/4 per adult/child) and there are camping pods available that sleep two (£20 per person plus £5 for bedding).
