Located on the Orkney Islands off Scotland’s north-eastern coast, this port town has much to offer visitors and locals alike. From its historical architecture dating back hundreds of years, such as ‘The Old Manse’ which was built in 1699-to restaurants offering traditional Scottish cuisine; from picturesque views over the bay to rich local culture waiting around every corner - there truly is something special that awaits all who make their way down here! 
Stromness' streets are lined by Georgian buildings and quaint cottages making it quite an eye-catching spot along your travels through Northern Scotland. But beyond its beauty lies history just waiting to be explored! You can visit ancient historic sites like Earl Haroldsonn's castle or take part in activities at one of many museums located throughout town including The Mill Dam Museum which chronicles life during World War II when Britain deported Axis nationals living within her borders into makeshift camps set up nearby Stomress Harbor. Further attractions include unique shops selling locally crafted items like jewelry and pottery plus cultural events such as plays performed at 'the Pier Arts Centre.' 
Overall my time spent exploring what makes this small but bustling city so wonderful was certainly worth it! If you ever get a chance – be sure not miss.
