Townscape Heritage Initiative


A major programme of investment in the Stromness Conservation Area is under way through the Stromness Townscape Heritage Initiative. Over £3.5million has been secured from various funders including Heritage Lottery Fund , Historic Scotland, Orkney Islands Council and Europe to repair and reinstate the historic townscape through a mixture of restoration work and bringing vacant premises back into use as well as a series of training initiatives.




As well as restoring the character of the flagstone street, and providing grants for other building works, the initiative is providing training in traditional skills.
