Orkney’s shops stock many locally produced arts and crafts, and food and drink, especially in the towns of Kirkwall and Stromness. Orkney jewellery, crafts and pottery are especially prominent, and you are sure to pick up a meaningful reminder of your visit.

Orkney offers visitors the chance to shop in individual and independent stores with friendly local staff, who are passionate about the products they sell and can share their knowledge of the craft industry.

The main towns of Kirkwall and Stromness have thriving high streets with a selection of shops. Across the smaller isles, towns and villages, shops are often also social centres and a source of information on everything from tide times to local wildlife spots.

In the shops, galleries and studios look out for marine and wildlife inspired jewellery, traditional knitwear, individual prehistoric pottery pieces, textiles, handmade soaps, paintings, photography and much more. With the largest concentration of craft jewellers anywhere in Scotland, shopping in Orkney can be a unique and rewarding experience. In the arts and craft shops, you can often see the creators at work on their products.

Don’t miss Stromness Shopping Week in July. The longest running festival in Orkney, this week-long gala highlights the area’s fantastic retail offerings in addition to hosting a variety of entertainment for all ages.
