“Hidden within the tiny, winding streets of Stromness the museum is a great place to visit on a rainy day. Weekly ticket, pay once and visit as often as you like for the seven days. A great idea as there is so much to look at! Open daily, 10am - 5pm. Open until 7pm on Wednesdays. Exhibitions changing regularly. Situated 2.2 miles from Smiddy Cottage, 4 minutes away.”

“Scapa Flow Visitor Centre, Lyness, Hoy Scapa Flow Visitor Centre is housed in what was once the British naval base at Lyness. The museum contains a series of interpretative displays telling the story of Orkney during two World Wars, artefacts from HMS Royal Oak and HMS Hampshire, and a significant collection of photographs. The centre also includes a massive oil tank (where a film about Scapa Flow is shown), a Romney hut (containing the famous Otterbank, believed to be the world's first floating bank) and a fascinating collection of searchlights, guns and military vehicles. Many of the displays are contained in the old pumphouse. Built in 1917”
