Stones of Stenness Circle and Henge
Along with Skara Brae, the Ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe, the Stones of Stenness are part of the UNESCO World Heritage group of monuments known collectively as 'the heart of Neolithic Orkney'. The Ring of Brodgar and Maeshowe are nearby, suggesting an important area in the neolithic age.
The stones include the remains of a circle dating from 3000 BC that had 12 stones (4 are left). The circle is surrounded by a ditch and in its centre is a square stone associated with bone, charcoal and pottery. Other stones are found outside the circle, such as the 5.6 metre 'Watch Stone'.
Local traditions and rituals were associated with the stones as late as the 18th Century.
This Marina has 64 berths and offers showers, toilets and laundry facilities. There are a number of shops and restaurants in the vicinity, as well as many attractions such as the Stromness Museum and Pier Arts Centre. Car and bicycle hire, a fitness centre, pub and nearby golf course as well as ferry links make the Stromness Marina a tourist hub.
Highland Park Distillery
Whisky has been made on this location since 1798, albeit illegally. Highland Park distillery though was founded in 1818 and claims to be Scotland's most northerly distillery. In 1986, it opened a visitor centre which offers a tour starting with an audio-visual presentation before going on to the actual visit which finishes in the shop. This attraction has been awarded five stars by the Scottish Tourist Board.
The distillery is open daily from 10 am to 5 pm from May to September except on Sunday when it opens at 12. Tours take place every half hour. The rest of the year, the distillery is only open for visiting Monday to Friday, with only one tour at 2 pm from November to March.
