Stronsay Spring Craft Fair 2019 with Orkney Nature Festival

By Simone Kirk

On the morning of Saturday 18th May a bunch of intrepid walkers, including both visitors and locals, headed out for the Vat of Kirbister.

Leading the nature walk was Ian McNab (RSPB Scotland) assisted by Megan Taylor and Stronsay Ranger Charlie Richings. Despite a degree of chilled dampness in the air, everyone appeared to have enjoyed the opportunity to view the magnificent cliff-top scenery and its accompanying wildlife.

The afternoon craft fair got off to a great start and there was no drop in numbers all afternoon with folk eager to partake in the massive plant sale, have a cuppa, sample the delicious cakes and of course check out the fab crafts and local products.

There was a real buzz in the Hall and a great atmosphere. We were sorry that Rosalind (Selkie Glass, Stronsay) and Keith (Peedie Box Company, Kirkwall) were unable to attend due to unforeseen reasons and hope they’ll be with us another time.
