“A lot can happen when you go for a quiet walk in Orkney!!!!”
Have Scots reverted to the car or will we continue to cycle and walk in greater numbers than before Covid ?
“This is a great opportunity to get out and enjoy the great Orkney outdoors, and if walking isn’t your thing, you can participate in any way which suits you, be it sea swimming, or bouncing on the trampoline. “
“New Year’s Day 2021 started with some heavy rain showers – verging on sleet – but, if we let showers stop us we’d never go out! “
“We took the path to the left, for a relatively short walk up the Hill of Midland.”
“There has been some controversy about whether this walk should have been established at all”
The St Magnus Way project to create a virtual experience and improve accessibility on the physical route has won a £2,500 award from the Calor Rural Community Fund.
“”transport is now the highest emitting sector in Scotland, responsible for roughly 36% of greenhouse gas emissions in 2018. Emissions are largely unchanged on 1990 levels.”
“In the Literary Pilgrimage project, we put out posters with texts by Orkney writers along the 55 mile pilgrimage route. The locations are chosen so that they fit with the text, and what you can see from there.”
The St Magnus Way is entered into the £2,500 funding category and is competing for one of six awards of that amount.
