Kirkwall Gallery, Orkney

Our beautiful jewellery Gallery is in the oldest part of Kirkwall.

Sheila opened her first Gallery in 1999, two years after the new Workshop was built. It's a long narrow shop split over two floors in a historic building in Kirkwall. This area of Kirkwall is where the town began. Monks are recorded here in the 7th century and later the Vikings built a chapel, known as St. Olaf's Church. The stone archway of this chapel can still be seen in the lane near our shop.

If you walk from the Harbour along Kirkwall's main shopping street to the Cathedral then you will be following the old shoreline of Kirkwall. About 1000 years ago you could have stepped from a longboat into our shop. Today we welcome guests disembarking from cruise ships at Kirkwall Pier.

On the ground floor our shop primarily showcases the full range of Sheila Fleet jewellery and rings. Upstairs you'll find a further selection of designer crafts including a wide range of the best Scottish made ceramics, knitwear, textiles, artworks. These are specialist gifts you may struggle to find anywhere else.

The Gallery has recently been refurbished and is lovely to explore. Whether you live in Orkney or have travelled far to visit us Muriel and her team will give you a warm welcome. They are all very knowledgeable and can offer assistance with trying jewellery on and sizing fingers for made to measure rings.
