By 1590 Stromness had obviously established itself as a seaport as an inn was built on the eastern shore of Hamnavoe to cater for visiting ships. By the 1620s early houses were beginning to appear on the site of modern Stromness. Although these little dwellings were quite small - usually nothing more than two rooms and thatched roofs - records show that by 1624 the town had its own slater. This would imply that there were obviously more substantial properties in the area, properties with slate roofs that required his services.

Stromness' long history of catering for visiting ships had by this time developed into fully fledged boat building with four boatyards in operation around the town. The herring boom of the late 19th century saw Stromness grow considerably and for a time was larger than its neighbour and rival Kirkwall. From 1888 onwards, during the herring season, Stromness harbour was packed with fishing vessels. With often more than 400 ships lying at anchor, for six or eight weeks the population swelled by an extra four or five thousand people. To meet the herring fleet's demand for berthing and shore facilities, wooden jetties were erected and in 1893 facilities were built at the Point o' Ness. However, the herring industry was fickle, depending as it did on the migratory habitats of the herring, and Stromness' days as a herring port were over before the First World War.

In 1901, the town was thriving and the parish population reached a peak of 3,180. With the arrival of the First World War, Scapa Flow became the base of the Royal Navy's Grand Fleet and Stromness assumed the role of a Naval HQ. The years of the great depression between the wars saw the closure of Stanger's boatyard in 1926 and high hopes of a revived herring season in 1927 came to nothing. The North Pier was built about 1930 to provide facilities for a firm processing seaweed or "tangles", but this venture also failed. The Second World War saw another influx of military personnel into the island and the Stromness Hotel became the Orkney and Shetland Military HQ. The town itself supplied the water and provisions to the Naval Fleet based in Scapa Flow. After the war the population of Stromness saw a slow but steady decline. By 1961 the population had fallen below 2,000. However, 20 years later the trend had reversed and the population had grown to 2,160.
