Orkney Girl Guides exhibition

For a moment, I thought the curators of Orkney Museum had gone just a tad mad when I read their latest blog post entitled Ging gang goolie goolie goolie goolie goolie goolie goolie woggle.

Not wishing to rush to judgement on the mental health of the writer, or to reflect on it as a possible comment on the nature of northern island life in the 21st century, I ventured to read further. Thankfully, I soon realised it was OK to put the stethoscopes away, as the post was in fact about a new Girl Guides exhibition running in Kirkwall from April 3rd - 24th...! :)

So get out your woggles (though perhaps, with respect, hold back on the goolies!), and have a look at the post at, which includes lots of images from the Guides movement as held in the Orkney Photographic Archive.
