From the newly restored Papdale Walled Garden to the enchanting Woodwick House with its mysterious Doocot and Happy Valley, the life’s work of Edwin Harrold in the valley near Stenness. Visual art installations combine with live music performances and costumed characters in each garden to provide an absorbing afternoon.
