A magical journey through the mysterious Orkney Islands, where the past and the present meet. Using the ancient stories that were told by the firesides of the Picts and Vikings, we hear how the islands were created from the teeth of a monster; how a giant created lochs and hills in his greed for fertile land; and how the waves are controlled by the hand of a goddess. Witches raise storms and predict the outcome of a battle; ghosts seek revenge; and the devil sits in the rafters of St Magnus Cathedral, taking notes!
