Hosted as part of Book Week Scotland 2023, celebrating Adventure in all its forms. 

The theme of adventure ties in with our exhibition Virtual St Kilda Revisited which allows adults and children to experience the adventure of visiting this remote island through the medium of virtual reality. There is also an exhibition of photographs by Michael Faint and poems by Steve Ely in English and Gaelic, exploring the uninhabited tidal island of Orasaigh off the west coast of South Uist.
