Jim Wallace Speaks at Scottish Congress.

The largest Scottish Congress in recent years took place on at the end of May. Participants where from all parts of the UK and also Brazil, Russia and Belgium.

There was a varied program of lectures, entertainment and excursions. A highlight of the Congress was the visit of Jim Wallace, the Deputy Scottish First Minister who addressed the Congress and spoke to all the overseas delegates. He expressed delight that Orkney had been chosen for the Congress and hoped that this would encourage more visits to one of the most historically rich areas of Britain.
