Stromness is a picturesque and bustling small town, shaped by the sea. Yards from the historic harbour, the winding streets lead to a range of eateries, local craft shops and galleries.

The Orkney Folk Festival, held in Stromness every May, is a highlight in both the Orkney and Scottish Folk calendars. Performers and visitors from all over the world come to soak up the music, and, of course, the magical atmosphere.

Stromness is the perfect place from which to visit the sites of the west mainland of Orkney, especially the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, a group of Neolithic monuments including Skara Brae, the best preserved group of prehistoric houses in Western Europe. A truly special place. Also nearby, there are a spectacular ten mile coastal walk, two highly acclaimed breweries, bird reserves, brown trout fishing lochs and several villages with shops, tearooms and craft studios.
