On Saturday 17th of August the St Magnus Way Group invites anyone interested to join them for the latest of their free guided walks. This time they will be on Egilsay.
Before the walk there will be short ceremonies to commission the interpretation boards designed for by Iain Ashman at Tingwall and Egilsay piers and the waymarker stone sculpted by Frances Pelly.
The walk is about 3 and a half miles long and the theme for this section of the St Magnus Way is Peace.
Tea and coffee will be available in the Egilsay Community Centre.
- 8.15am ceremony at Tingwall Pier
- 8.40am ferry to Egilsay.
- 1.35pm ferry leaves Egilsay
Walkers need strong footwear and to bring their own food and water and will be responsible for their own ferry fares.
The Rousay Eglisay & Wyre Development Trust are having a fun day in Rousay and walkers are invited to spend some time on Rousay, join in with food and art activities available between 2pm and 5pm. Money raised from this is going to the Rainbow, Brownie and Guide Groups on Rousay. Ferries back from Rousay are at 14.10, 15.20 and 17.30.
The St Magnus Way Trustees are grateful to Evie and Rendall Community Council, Rousay Eglisay & Wyre Development Trust and LEADER for funding towards the cost of the interpretation boards, waymarker stone and development of the route on Egilsay.
