An opportunity to find out more about Swona, its seals and shipwrecks, as Katy Firth of Stromness Museum introduces an exhibition of 360 degree photospheres of the island, with the help of some of the people close to its wildlife and history.
The island, out in the Pentland Firth tidestream on the southern approaches to Scapa Flow, has been uninhabited for nearly fifty years, and the remaining cattle, now feral, are recognised as a distinct breed.
Through the exhibition you can stand at various vantage points on the island, from the shores where the seals breed to stretches of wildflower meadow, and turn each image around a full 360 degrees, listening to voices and commentaries in multimedia format.
This morning she shows how to get the most out of the exhibition, and welcomes several people with much knowledge of the island.
You can watch this free event from here, through the YouTube link which will be coming shortly, or you can also go to the Science Festival’s YouTube channel
