Stenness is a parish and loch just to the north of Stromness, but it has gained fame through the Standing Stones of Stenness, a henge or group of prehistoric stones dated at about 1800 B.C. and the even more notable Ring of Brodgar.

This Bronze Age relic consists of twenty seven stones, but originally there were probably sixty, the tallest is 15 ft high. This is claimed to be, after Stonehenge the most splendid megalithic henge monument in Britain. The loch is also noted for its exceptionally large brown trout.
