Lord Duncan visits Orkney Islands

Posted on 3 August 2018

On Friday 3 August, Lord Duncan visited Old Scatness Boch in Shetland, where he explored the archaeological site that was built sometime between 400-200BC. The site is currently run by Shetland Amenity Trust.

Lord Duncan then flew to the Orkney Islands, where he met with CIIr James Stockan and Gavin Barr of Orkney Island Council. They spoke about the Islands Growth Deal as well as remote island wind and marine opportunities, and the future for renewables in Orkney.

Next, Lord Duncan had a brief stop at BBC Orkney, where he spoke about the future of Protected Geographical Indicators (PGI) post-EU exit.

The trip ended with him spending some time at the St Magnus Cathedral.
