The property lies in the heart of the town, walking distance from the ferry terminal (10 minutes) and close to shops and other amenities. If you are travelling by car, there is free on-street parking.
With its cobbled streets winding around the shore and up the steep hill, Stromness is a delightful place to explore on foot. The narrow closes off the main street offer glimpses of the water between buildings, and as you climb the hill a magnificent vista opens up, looking out across Scapa Flow to the dramatic hills of North Hoy.
If you're looking for outdoor activities, there are plenty of options close by. Boats offer sea angling trips from the harbour, and there is excellent trout fishing nearby (the West Mainland has some of the best brown trout lochs in the country). Stromness is the main centre for scuba diving in Orkney, with a number of boats offering diving off the military wrecks in Scapa Flow. The Stromness Golf Course welcomes visitors and organises a midnight tournament at the height of summer. There is also excellent walking, birdwatching and sailing - boats can be hired from the marina.
There are plenty of indoor attractions too, including the Stromness Museum, with local history and natural heritage displays, Pool & Leisure Centre, the Pier Arts Centre, and lots of small galleries and craft shops to browse.
Close to the cottage there is a bakery, newsagent, delicatessen, as well as a butcher, pubs and restaurants. You can find lots more information about Stromness, places to visit and what's on in the town here www.stromnessorkney.com
