Go for a Backstage Tour of the King’s Theatre founded in 1906. Later, attend an Alternative Comedy Walking Tour conducted by Daniel, a thoroughly entertaining Comic Actor who has been imparting knowledge about the City the funny way for some time. Continue exploring the city while learning about Scotland’s folk story history. As you walk through the city, understand the importance of setting when building a story.

No trip to Scotland is complete without visiting this quant area. Today we let go, stroll the cobblestone streets, try out some restaurants, and enjoy being “Scottish”.

Sail out to the Orkney Islands and visit The Orkney Folklore & Storytelling Centre – A Centre for Heritage Tourism. Spend the evening hiking around Stromness. Remember, the sun doesn’t set until after 9PM in May so we have lots of time to explore after dinner.

It’s famed for its Victorian and art nouveau architecture, a rich legacy of the city’s 18th–20th-century prosperity due to trade and shipbuilding. Today it’s a national cultural hub, home to institutions including the Scottish Opera, Scottish Ballet and National Theatre of Scotland, as well as acclaimed museums and a thriving music scene. Attend an opera or theatrical performance that night after a delicious Scottish dinner!
