Join Jenny and Annie from hit podcast Stories of Scotland as they share some of their favourite legends, myths, and traditional stories from the Highlands and Islands retold through a queer lens. With the style of warm storytelling that you would expect in front of a fire in a rural bothy, Jenny and Annie give their own rainbow twist to some fascinating lore.

A family friendly romp with tales to make you laugh and cry at the wonders of queer fairies, selkies, ghosts and more. Through these tales, we transport the audience to the cold North seas, the majestic mountains, and some unsuspecting Highlands villages.

About the facilitator:

Annie and Jenny are the team behind Stories of Scotland, the most popular Scottish history podcast.

The show unravels the rich tapestry of Scotland’s culture, nature and heritage. Prepared to climb into caves, cairns and chaos, Annie and Jenny travel around Scotland and investigate how stories of the past can help us make sense of modern life.


There will be 50 attendees maximum, and the event will feature comfort breaks. During this event, attendees will participate in: listening to storytelling
