Tourists tend to stumble across us – they’re not expecting to find a bookshop down this narrow, hilly, cobbled street. There’s no pavement – it was designed for horses and carts.

Books Combined review – here

Stromness Books and Prints has a fairly eclectic selection of books. It just about accepts the need to stock some best sellers, but it is with reluctance – there is a much better selection of non-fiction and classic novels, which, to my mind, is all to the good, and, of course, a great selection of norse myths, sagas, all things on Orkney. –
