I am giving the 4* rating largely because of the quality and style of thus building. So far as the art exhibits are concerned they lacked the 'wow' factor that I had anticipated. Surprisingly much of the available wall space was empty of exhibits. Disappointing, but I accept others may well disagree.

There are some really interesting artworks on display here, but all very modern. For some, this will be endlessly intriguing and rewarding, for others a waste of time. But worthwhile for anybody who likes a challenge.

Delightfully situated in Stromness High Street. Doubles as the tourist office as well as the cultural centre. Helpful staff.

An interesting collection of impressive artwork. Beautiful views out over Stromness harbour.
