A Storytelling Landscape - The Islanders' Harvest Time - The Muckle Supper
We invite you on a magical journey through our Island Storytelling Landscape. The latest instalment is from the time of The Autumn Equinox when the islanders reaped the Harvest of their hard toil on the land.
Discover the Muckle Supper celebrations of past island crofters and their relationship with the lands around their Toonships. Listen to the present owner of the Mill Of Eyrland and the heritage of the Mill as the heart of these Orkney Islands’ Toonships.’
