Fashion & Shopping in Kirkwall
Kirkwall has variety of shops, covering everything from food and drink, jewellery, arts, crafts & design, fashion, sports and the outdoors, books, music, toys, home furnishings, clothing and electrical goods. That’s in addition to banks, busy cafes, hotels and restaurants.
The Longship captures the essence of Orkney: proud of its heritage, but embracing the best the modern world has to offer. Founded in 1859 by the great-great-grandfather of the current owner, it started life offering ‘continental produce and imported wines’ – still a passion.
Our contemporary gold and silver jewellery is hand crafted by skilled silversmiths in the beautiful Orkney Islands in Scotland. We use traditional methods and tools to create unique pieces, each of which combines a freshness of design with quality craftsmanship, overseen by master craftsman Steven Cooper.
From our workshop, located on Westray, one of the most northerly of the Orkney Islands, we create a range of the knitted garments and home textiles.
We have worked hard over the years, to establish our brand, playing with soft muted tones and textures derived from the sky, sea and landscape of our home.
