Reading Room

Tingwall is a tiny port town located in Orkney, an archipelago off the North coast of Scotland, there a special memorial was created by a couple as a fitting tribute for Betty, a late friend who died unexpectedly. The couple combined Betty’s love of books and Orkney by converting a derelict cottage into a ‘reading room.’ The aim was to encourage reading and to provide shelter for passengers waiting to catch the ferry to Rousay, while also keeping Betty’s memory alive using what she loved the most, books.
