Investment in Orkney

Stromness Hotel
The Stromness Hotel’s trading history stretches back to 1901.

A HISTORIC Highland hotel dating back to 1901 has changed hands.

The former owner of The Stromness Hotel in Orkney put the hotel up for sale when they retired and it has been bought by an investment company that has said it will spend money at the site to benefit both the hotel and the community.

The hotel has 42 en suite bedrooms and a variety of public rooms as well as staff accommodation, gardens and a car park.

Jacqueline MacGregor of ASG Commercial, who handled the sale, said the hotel is in “a prominent and popular trading location, operating on a seasonal basis and trading profitably”.
Stromness is a popular tourist stop-off point and is only 15 miles from Kirkwall.

Located within a leisurely walk of the ferry terminal, The Stromness Hotel has been serving locals and tourists for over 100 years and is said to be a popular destination location for many visitors during the main season from Easter to October.
