Around the Harbours - Stromness by 


Stromness is the second-largest town in Orkney, Scotland, and is located in the south-west of Mainland in Orkney. It is also a parish, with the town of Stromness as its capital.
The name “Stromness” is derived from the Norse language. “Strom” refers to the strong tides that rip past the Point of Ness through Hoy Sound to the south of the town. “Ness” means “headland”. Stromness thus means "headland protruding into the tidal stream ". In Viking times the anchorage where Stromness now stands was called Hamnavoe, meaning “peaceful” or “safe harbour”. (Wikipedia)
