The separate Café serves freshly prepared food and both Café and Hostel are open all year. Stronsay Fish Mart Hostel and Café is a totally modernized and refurbished building at the head of the ferry pier within Whitehall Village, on the Island of Stronsay, Orkney.
The Isle of Stronsay means Star Island in Old Norse and has an unusual 3 legged landscape, which lends itself to some fantastic white sand beaches and a stunning coastline. The main centre is the village of Whitehall dating back to the herring fishery days and provides facilities and a sense of community.
There is an amazing coastline to explore with the spectacular Vat of Kirbuster a recommended walk. The path along the cliff top provides outstanding views and is a good place to watch the puffins when they arrive for the nesting season from April onwards. There is abundant seabird colonies as well as seals and otters around the shores. Stronsay is a great place for families to visit with lots of shallow bays on the coastline and playparks and a swimming pool in the village. There is also a lot of ancient history to discover especially the iron ages brochs at Lamb Head.
