Walk the Oars – Vikings in Scotland

Lorna Shields : Really one of the best things I’ve seen at the fringe this year! As I said to my friend… ‘ I knew it was going to be good, but I didn’t know it was going to be this good‘ …. blown away – like the wiking ship, and those billowing sails!

Anne Hunter: I loved loved ‘Walk the Oars’ such an evocative and beautifully paced hour on the sea in a Viking ship and I’m still feeling the exhilaration of walking the oars

4 star review in “Walk the Oars is a treasure, an ancient oasis of delight in the sea of the modern world. The whole thing is engaging and exciting, and rekindles a semi-lost fire of storytelling.” Imogen Rowe,
