Number 42 John Street is situated in the heart of Stromness within an iconic grade B listed stone building, known locally as "The Speedings."

Number 42, The Speedings, is a quiet, yet dynamic place to stay. We are only a few minutes walk from the ferry terminal, bus station, pubs, shops, cafes and resturants and all that the town has to offer. Ideal for guests who are travelling without cars but also perfect if you are driving, with short- term on-street parking right outside the front door and free long term parking at the back. Despite this, you can feel a sense of peace with our location being just beyond the main hubub of the town and overlooking a peaceful local garden. The house is well equipped and very comfortable. We have built on its quirky layout by adding carefully selected pieces and decor, giving rise to a stylish, immersive space which sets it apart from many others.
