The Odin Stone is a beautifully designed retail outlet housing an extensive selection of locally produced quality art and craft work.
Peruse a wide range of locally made arts and crafts, from paintings, prints and jewellery to ceramics, textiles and sculpture. The design of the shop incorporates a number of interesting features that reflect various aspects of Orkney's folklore and traditions. There is an impressive Odin Stone standing in the exterior forecourt at the shop entrance which was created using locally quarried stone. It is a gorgeous blue-grey colour and has a large hole bored though it roughly a metre from the ground. For hundreds of years, Orcadians used the original Odin Stone near the Stones of Stenness (now part of Orkney’s World Heritage Site) to seal contracts and bind vows or cure ailments.
