Digital Guided Walk - Shoreline Nature Trail
Follow our newest digital guided walk along the shore in Stromness. We begin at the museum and walk around the shoreline to the Old Lifeboat Shed at Ness. We look beyond the walls of the museum to bring you items from our natural history collection, such as plants, seaweeds, birds and shells. This walk presents the specimens in their natural homes within the landscape.
