Heading further afield: military history and wild seabirds
If you long for something else on Stromness, don’t worry: there are 70 Orkney Islands, and only 20 of them are inhabited, meaning there are plenty of islands just waiting to be explored. There are 13 RSPB nature reserves in the area, each one allowing visitors to observe a vast array of seabirds and other wildlife. For a fascinating insight into the importance of the local area for the British during World War I, head to Lyness on Hoy where a museum is dedicated to the topic.
