Stromness Port Ferry Overview

Stromness is the second-largest town in Orkney, Scotland, and is located in the south-west of Mainland in Orkney. It is also a parish, with the town of Stromness as its capital. The name Stromness is derived from the Viking language. Strom refers to the strong tides that rip past the Point of Ness to the south of the town, literally 'strong tide point'. In Viking times Stromness was called Hamnavoe, meaning 'peaceful or safe harbour'.

First recorded as the site of an inn in the 16th century, Stromness became important during the late 17th century, when England was at war with France and shipping was forced to avoid the English Channel. Ships of the Hudson's Bay Company were regular visitors, as were whaling fleets. Stromness Museum reflects these aspects of the town's history.

A long-established seaport, it has a population of approximately 2,190 residents. The old town is clustered along the main street, flanked with houses and shops built from local stone, with narrow lanes and alleys branching off it. There is a ferry link from Stromness to Scrabster on the north coast of mainland Scotland operated by Northlink Ferries. Stromness Ferry Terminal can be found at Orkney's main gateway at the busy port of Stromness. Dating from the 17th century, Stromness owes its origins to its excellent harbour.
