Stroma Visit - Saturday 10th August 2013
Last year we organised a visit to Stroma, prompted by interest from the Islands Book Trust, and readers of their book Stroma, published in 2010. Taking the abandoned island as its subject, the book features photos by Roddie Ritchie, with poetry by Caithness writer George Gunn.
The visit – which included bonus sightings of Killer Whale (Orcinus orca) - proved so popular that we plan to run another this summer. Numbers will be limited, with two crossings: Leave 10am/Return 4pm; Leave 11am/Return 5pm. Ticket price to be confirmed. For information and to book telephone 01847 896508 or email: christinegunn[AT]
