    You can park on the island. Car park on your left as you leave the causeway. If you want to walk there is a car park on the mainland side of the causeway also. Just remember to check the tides as you cannot camp on the island. :)

    Car park on left just before causeway, you can then walk over following the poles on right of causeway (Pilgrims Way). or park in main carpark near village.
    No over night parking/camping on Island, but cl near rail crossing or several round Berwick area. Go on line and CHECK TIDES for safe crossing times, DON'T take risks - regular pictures in local press of half submerged 4x4s who thought they knew beter.

    Thanks for the replies, should have looked closer at google maps:Doh:

    don't worry revk, I fish and kayak so tides are always checked:thumb:

    What if you get cut off by the tide at night? Can you not get a bit of kip in the MH ?

    They do not permit overnight camping for caravans or motorhomes, not sure how they enforce it. :Sad:
