Digital Guided Walk - Shoreline Nature Trail

Follow our newest digital guided walk along the shore in Stromness. We begin at the museum and walk around the shoreline to the Old Lifeboat Shed at Ness. We look beyond the walls of the museum to bring you items from our natural history collection, such as plants, seaweeds, birds and shells.  This walk presents the specimens in their natural homes within the landscape.

Guided walk - George Mackay Brown Trail

George Mackay Brown was one of Scotland’s greatest writers of the twentieth century. Perhaps best known as a poet and novelist, he also wrote plays and short stories, and worked as a journalist. His subject was Orkney, its people, legends and history. He was renowned for his ‘astonishing clarity and sureness of imagery’. Download the pdf using the link below:
