Skara Brae
#1 of 7 Sights & Landmarks in Stromness
Well done historic site -- you are able to visit a reconstructed village and touch everything ad get the feel before you wander into the archaeological site (which helps people resist touching the fragile originals).
There is an excellent cafe serving delicious home baked food (try the shortbread), a lovely but pricy shop and an interesting although understated exhibition showing the history of the site.

There is an amazing view all along the coastal path, passing a sea stack joined to the cliff by a natural bridge, the past Yesnaby Castle and on again along the cliff tops.
