Local Information

There is a Tourist Information Centre in Stromness where you can find out details of the many interesting places to visit on Orkney along with leaflets and guides.

The Pier Arts Centre acts as a focal point for the local artistic community. Alongside the permanent collection the Centre curates a year round programme of changing exhibitions and events for the education and enjoyment of the general public.

If you want a glimpse into Orkney's Natural History and Maritime Past, or to study it in more detail, Stromness Museum is a must. Since 1837 the museum has amassed a unique and fascinating collection, which has something for everyone.

Ring of BrodgarUnstan Cairn Chambered Tomb The tomb is a particularly well preserved, and somewhat unusual, example of the Orkney-Cromarty type of chambered cairn.

The Stones of Stenness and the Ring of Brodgar are two of Britain’s best-preserved prehistoric monuments. They were built between 5,400 and 4,500 years ago.

Tromiston Mill is an excellent late example of a Scottish watermill. It was probably built in the 1880s. The waterwheel and most of the machinery have been retained. Now forms a reception centre for visitors to the Maeshowe chambered cairn.

And finally, while you're in Orkney why not try some of our locally produced cheese made with milk from our own farm. Even better, once you've got a taste for it you can buy a Orkney Cheddar from most major supermarkets.
