Has anyone been here with their MH. Is it all wild camping or are there any sites?
Not been there though always intended to having toured the Outer Hebrides.
This link should help;
Best site you will ever find, in Orkney, Pickaquoy Leisure Centre. Not sure about Shetland
There is a thread on trips to Shetland in the UK Touring section - Second page back from memory.
We spent two + weeks on Shetland in May 2009 and had a wonderful time. We did a mix of campsite and wild camping [see the view from our wildcamping spot at St. Ninians Island in this months Practical Motorhome - Hot Shot winner!].
Wild camping is OK with the usual provisos about not blocking areas, leaving a mess etc
If i can help, please PM me.

We visited Shetland last year, without the van as my wife has family there. We are going back this year, with the van this time. I saw plenty of places to wild camp and saw at least three good campsites, Clickimin, Braewick and Skeld. Our intention is to stay with the family for a couple of days then head off for a few days stopping wherever.
The roads are very good, albeit some are single track, only noticed one pothole in a weeks driving round.
Found the thread in uk touring thanks.
Been to both (orkney twice) There are campsites on both but IMO its a shame to use them when they are such great wild camping places, totally legal and very safe. The weather is always crap but you could be lucky. If you get a chance get the ferry on Shetland to Yell and then the ferry to Unst. What a magical place and the ferries are really cheap.
