HistoryThere used to be a few working bakeries in Stromness but now Argo's is the only one.
The bakery is still very much a family run business - Ian and Mabel Argo bought the business from Ian's father George in the 1950s. In 1988 Ian became the President of the Scottish Association of Master Bakers, and has been the only person from Orkney to hold that position.
With their son and daughter, the fourth generation of the family, now working within the business, Argo's Bakery is one of the longest established family run businesses in Orkney.
They are very proud to continue the tradition of delivering delicious freshly-made food in the heart of Stromness and Kirkwall.
