Stromness is the second biggest town in Orkney. The town is also called Hamnavoe and sits along the shoreline lined with houses which have their own piers or slipway's. In the past it was known for its Herring fishing industry and many of the double storey houses belonged to sea captains. Schooners often stopped for water in Stromness on their way to Northern Canada and to pick up crew for The Hudson Bay Company. There is endless subject matter here, I love the hidden lanes, secret gardens and the shoreline. I hope you enjoy them!
