A Place to explore

The Stromabank Hotel is a small, cosy family run hotel based in Longhope on the interconnected islands of Hoy and South walls.

We have 4 letting rooms which comprise of 2 double rooms one of which has disabled access and 2 twin rooms, all of our rooms have recently been decorated with new furniture and beds. 

Our bar is well stocked, perfect for sitting by the fire and enjoying local beers, gins and whiskies, or listening to the tales of our friendly locals.

The conservatory restaurant is where breakfast and evening meals are served, with panoramic views across the Pentland firth with mainland Scotland in view, from here you can also see other islands such as Stroma, Swona, Switha and Flotta. 

Hoy and South Walls is rich in history and nature. You don't need to wander far to find historical landmarks such as the Dwarfie stane. There are a number of remnants of the world wars such as the Martello tower and the Lyness Royal Naval Cemetery. There is wildlife and nature on our doorstep, from birds such as hen harriers and great skuas to plants such as the rare Scottish Primrose Primula scotica. At the north end of the island there is a large nature reserve and also the stunning Rackwick bay as well as the famous sea stack 'the old man of Hoy'.

Our islands are very well connected with daily ferries travelling from Stromness or Houton to Moaness and Lyness and even Flotta, We have a community bus which runs along side the ferry timetable as well as a private taxi service.
