Zooms and Clichés: Hebrides, Orkney and Shetland


This is a generic title for the three briefings mentioned below. The challenge for me was to present the complicated history of these three archipelagoes within a very limited amount of time. This is why I have chosen to concentrate in each briefing with was most relevant to the excursions offered…. while stressing that our perception of Scotland in general is often the product of contemporary flights of imagination.

The three briefings concerned are the following:

The Hebrides: Celts, Picts and Scots,

Orkney: Back to the Beginnings,

The Shetlands: In the footsteps of the Vikings
