Burgh of Barony

Two hundred years ago, on Saturday, Stromness was officially decreed a Burgh of Barony. To mark this important event a service was held in the Stromness Kirk bringing together the congregations of the Church of Scotland, the Baptist Church and the Episcopal Church

Here we see, from left to right, Canon Tom Miller, James Stockan, Lord Lieutenant Bill Spence, Rev Martin Prentice and Cameron Stout who all participated in the service.
