Scottish Highland video clips - July 2004
In case of difficulty, please read this (pop-up)
A look at our
holiday cottage in the Scottish Highlands in Piperhill, with a look at
the view towards Nairn as Belinda takes a picture. Then a look at
Mike relaxing with a beer in the conservatory as he takes a break from
holiday planning surrounded by all the tourist flyers.
This has got
to be the holiday highlight, this clip has a shot of the boat
'Dolphinicity' at Lossiemouth, sailing out of the harbour and of course
the dolphins swimming alongside the boat out on the Moray Firth and
doing their dipping, diving and generally showing off! Wow!
A shot of the
Cairn Gorm mountain and the funicular railway car going up, then us in
it going up the mountain. Then, Belinda at the top admiring the
cloudy view of the highland landscape with the piece shattered by
excited Japanese kids up there! Ock aye the noo!
See us (well, Mike really)
prepare a meal of Spag Bol in the cottage kitchen and easily get
distracted from the task by pouring the wine and then enjoy eating (and
drinking) it in the lounge where we discuss what's on the agenda for
the next day's exciting Scotland touring!
As we cruise on Loch Ness the man
advises us to keep a lookout for the monster popping up beside us (ooh
er), plus we see Urquhart Castle along the shores of the Loch. No
sign of Mike in this shot - has he been eaten by the monster?
Maybe he IS the monster!
In this clip
we see Belinda buying the tickets for our ride on The Strathspey
Railway, the steam engine, Mike entering the carriage, a look out of
the train window up towards the engine and the train puffing out of
Aviemore billowing steam everywhere after we've disembarked.
An enjoyable cooked breakfast
cooked by Belinda, served by Mike and eaten by Mike and Belinda in the
kitchen of the holiday cottage. Cheers!
The shot shows the distillery at Dallus Dhu
and the huge mobile phone thingees we carried around listening to the
commentary. Plus a look at Belinda enjoying(?) a wee dram after
