Dr John Rae was a famous Orkney explorer. He was born at Clestrain in Stenness. This picture depicts the house with all its secret memories hidden in the image. From his fiddle to his clothes and sledge, it is a story of his discovery of The North West passage in the arctic. You can see the original at Stromness museum.
