Plan your own Orkney lunch in advance from our downloadable recipe brochure, with links to Orkney suppliers.
Then at 1 o’clock tune in to the Science Festival YouTube channel to hear from St Andrews University researcher Dr James Grecian about changing patterns of marine mammal migration. Tristan Cameron-Harper shows drone images of Orkney archaeological sites from the air, and Eric Walker will tell us where to find Clusters and Clouds in the night sky. They’ll round off at 1.15 pm and join us for lunch around one of our online tables.
The online tables that follow are also free to attend but numbers are limited, book your place early using this online form.
In the time up to 1 o’clock, there’s an opportunity to watch some of the videos specially made for us, including the tour of the Barony Mill, showing the machinery that produces beremeal, with a demonstration of baking bere bannocks.
And for the 1 o’clock lunchtime livestream itself, we have a direct link from here, or you can go direct to it in the Science Festival’s YouTube channel
At 2 o’clock we have the full high-definition version of Tristan Cameron-Harper’s film of Orkney archaeological sites from the air, among them the Broch of Gurness and the Stones of Stenness, with sea-cliffs with breaking waves at their bases and views over Rackwick Bay.
