Ancient Tunnel System & Gun Powder Mill - Roslin, Scotland [04:05]
Home to alot of sliimey looking cave spiders, we explored these old tunnels which could be linked to ICI Nobel's Roslin gunpowder factory mill, which is near by. Without crawling on your hands and knee's to to get through the very sinky mud, we didn't venture too far inside, but one section of tunnel seemed to go quite far in. I think it would be good to go back with some kind of remote control jeep with a camera and torch attached! Unfortunetely I didn't film much of the actual mill as it began to get dark, although there wasn't really much to see! A short, but not too bad an explore!

Apse And Communion Table St Conan's Kirk Loch Awe Argyll Scotland [00:33]
Tour Scotland video of the Apse and Communion Table on visit to St Conan's Kirk by Loch Awe, Argyll. The semicircular apse and ambulatory with their solid pillars, narrow arches and clear glass windows are perhaps the most distinctive features of St. Conan's. It seems probable that the shape was inspired by those of St. John's Chapel in the Tower of London, but whereas that chapel is dark, this receives the full blaze of daylight and has as its background the mountains of Glenorchy and Glenstrae. The result is most pleasing and almost unique. There is an interesting story current locally that when Mr. Campbell was designing this part of the kirk an engineer friend objected that, although the effect might be beautiful, the design was mechanically unsound. Mr. Campbell disagreed, but, to make quite sure, built a scale model of the apse and passed a steamroller over it. The model stood up to the pressure, and so has the structure itself. Within the curve of the apse is the communion table, made of solid oak. Once again the craftsmen were found locally and are still represented in the village. The wood from which this table was carved weighed over seven hundredweight
