About the Ferry Inn

Situated on the harbourfront in Orkney's gateway port Stromness, the Ferry Inn provides a safe and comfortable base for business or leisure stays, great food and a relaxed and welcoming bar. We have reopened following extensive refurbishment of our rooms and Karen, Gareth and their family look forward to welcoming folk back. Demand in the main season for rooms and food service is always high so we encourage potential visitors to plan well ahead. Book directly with us through this website for our very best rates for next year. Feel free to take our google tour, but please be aware that the building is rarely this empty!

Upcoming Events


Ness of Brodgar Dig 2022

Thjis year’s excavation at the Ness of Brodgar will run from Monday, July 4, 2022 until Friday, August 19, 2022. Part of the Heart of Neolithic Orkney World Heritage Site, the Ness is covered in, and surrounded by, archaeology and, until the beginning of the 21st century, was best-known as the location of the Ring of Brodgar. In 2002, that changed with the discovery of a massive complex of monumental Neolithic buildings, along with associated “artwork”, pottery, bones and stone tools, at the centre of a landscape rich in archaeology.
