Culture & Life in Atlantic Scotland

Between Islands: culture and life in Atlantic Scotland explores the inspiration and legacy of islands in the arts, crafts and literature of Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides. This exhibition, part of the wider Between Islands project, comes from Orkney. It features objects from Shetland Museum and Archive and Museum and Tasglann nan Eilean, alongside items from the permanent collections of Orkney Museum and Orkney Library and Archive, both managed by Orkney Islands Council.
