Trainspotting is 25 years old! And yet, I’ve still never seen it! Here are photos, from when Nick, had us remaking some scenes from the film.

Remaking Trainspotting scenes while at Corrour railway station

Nick had us remaking some of the scenes from Trainspotting. Which I must add, I’ve never seen in my life! But did have great fun doing them! If you ever, make it to Corrour railway station. You, will of course, have to do the same!! 🙂

Beinn na Lap ✅

I can now tick off Beinn na Lap. Making it, my fourth Munro. So only got, another 278 left to go…

Really, can’t belive, how lucky, we were with the weather! Could not, have picked a better day for it! Was so hot, Nick and myself got sunburnt. Neil was OK, since he put suntan lotion on.

Oh and yes, I did film a vlog during the walk… Will try to edit it and get it on-line in the next number of days…

You can check out the map, showing all the ones, I’ve done over at www.walkhighlands.co.uk/Forum/memberlist.php?mode=viewmap&u=50976

Falkirk Wheel, Blackness Castle and Forth Bridge

Neil joined us again for the last full day of Nick’s and myself mini tour of Scotland! Today we went to the Falkirk Wheel, Blackness Castle, Forth (Rail) Bridge and also walked half way over the Forth Road Bridge.

You would not believe that all these photos have been taken on the same day! When walking on the Forth Road Bridge, it was that wet, even my underwear was wet right thought!

Glen Etive, Glencoe and Glenfinnan Viaduct

Nick, myself and one of my live long friends Neil joined us for the next day of the Scotland tour!

We went to Glen Etive and Glencoe both used in Skyfall, James Bond film! And also the Glenfinnan Viaduct, which was of course used in Harry Potter.

Just going to these three places meant around 240 miles of driving! But at least, I love driving. So did not mind at all!
