Betty's Reading Room

Phot by Alison Miller 

Regular listeners to BBC Radio 4 may have heard Orkney being mentioned on last week's Saturday Live show,  when the programme included a piece on Betty's Reading Room. A derelict bothy at Tingwall has been converted into a cosy reading space by Craig Mollison and Jane Spiers in memory of their good friend, Betty Prictor.

You can still listen to last week's edition of Saturday Live here on BBC iPlayerRadio and if you  can't make it to Tingwall you can watch the BBC Scotland report filmed earlier this year. 

Our very own Reader in Residence, Alison Miller, has also blogged about her visit to Betty's Reading Room and you can read about her visit and enjoy her lovely photos on her Reader in Residence Blog.

  1. Since the programme went out a week ago, I've had 180 more visits to the blog I did about Betty's Reading Room! Interesting to track these things. Worth drawing attention to again as it's such a fascinating inspiring place.


Can't make it along the street for a chat? Leave us a comment instead, we love hearing from you.
