West Shore Walk
Sunday 21st May 2017

How old are the rocks? Why has the area inspired artists? What plants and wildlife live there? A few of the questions you might find answers to as you accompany visual artist, sculptor and lecturer Anne Bevan on a cross-disciplinary walk along Stromness’ West Shore. Suitable footwear and outdoor clothes essential. Please note this event involves gentle to moderate, occasionally rough walking terrain.
