English: Finstown in the parish of Firth on Mainland, Orkney is the third largest settlement on the island. According to travel author Linklater, the homes in Finstown are tidy and well cared for. This settlement is situated along the Bay of Firth, whose fringe is a shallow intertidal mudflat. Prehistoric finds have been made in the form of ancient cists, somewhat west of the primary school. Finstown has a post office, Firth Primary School, two pubs (one closed at present), two shops and a garage. Most of these buildings are situated on the main Stromness to Kirkwall road.
Nederlands: Finstown is een dorp op Mainland, Orkney (Schotland), gelegen aan de weg halverwege tussen Stromness en Kirkwall waar deze kruist met de weg naar de oostzijde van het eiland.
